Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is action-adventure game developed by Naughty Dog, and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3. The first game in the Uncharted series, the game follows treasure hunter Nathan Drake as he searches for the fabled El Dorado.
The game received positive reception from critics, who praised its high-production value and story, although the game's length and graphical issues were criticized. The game was followed by three sequels: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves in 2009, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception in 2011, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End in 2016.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is a third-person perspective action-adventure game with elements of 3D platforming and shooting.
Drake can hold up to two guns (one single-handed and one double-handed) and four grenades at a time. Each weapon has a limited number of ammunition, but Drake can pick new guns and additional ammunition from the environment, such as defeated enemies. Drake's health is represented by the screen color: the graphic colors will fade as Drake takes damage, and return to normal as Drake regains health, which can be done by resting or hiding behind cover.
The game has four difficulty levels, which are (in order of ascending difficulty) Easy, Normal, Hard, and Crushing.
Plot[edit | edit source]
The game opens with treasure hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake, along with journalist Elena Fisher, recovering the coffin of English explorer Sir Francis Drake. Inside, they find the diary of Francis Drake, with notes pointing to the location of El Dorado. Their boat is suddenly attacked by pirates, but they are rescued by Nathan's friend Victor "Sully" Sullivan. Upon reaching shore and reviewing the diary, Nate is convinced by Sully to abandon Elena, as her documentary will cause other bounty hunters to chase after the treasure.
Following the diary, Nate and Sully venture into a pre-Columbian temple, where they learn that El Dorado is not a city of gold, but rather a large golden statue. Finding a marooned U-Boat nearby, Nate enters and finds mutilated Nazi corpses, and a map of the island where El Dorado is located. Before they can continue, Nate and Sully are intercepted by criminal Gabriel Roman, to whom Sully owes millions of dollars and his lieutenant Navarro. Deciding to find and take the treasure of El Dorado himself, Roman takes the map and and attempts to shoot Nate. Trying to intervene, Sully is shot in the chest, but Nate manages to escape when the U-Boat explodes (caused by a torpedo he accidentally triggered while leaving the submarine).
