FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

What do these ratings mean?

I havent writen a review in a long time.  But I had to for this one.
I work in a high school.  I talk to the kids about video games all the time.  Naturally, they know nothing beyond "Call of Duty".  I remember trying to convince some kids a few years ago how Playstation was simply a better system, specs, power, blu ray blah blah blah.  Now, however, I just point out the game library of both systems.  Along with GOD of war, Resistance, Little big planet, Infamous, Killzone and Heavy Rain, playstation owns exclusive rights to the booker..the Uncharted series.
It's very, very, very sad that this game will only sell 2-4 million copies, while COD modern warfare 3 will hit 30-35 million copies.  COD is a great game, but it is very sad that this game will go uncoticed in comparison.  I am not comparing the two, its just sad that gamers have chosen only one game to focus on, and they are missing something epic.  A true instant classic. 

Nathan Drake, once again teaming with Sully, will go on a mission to uncover why Sir Fancis Drakes was "MIA" for 6 month in the record books.  What was he busy doing?  Something obviously important.

The game forcasts a perfect blend of hand to hand combat, gun combat and puzzle solving.  Add a few suprise elements and you have the perfect storm. 

Graphic: breathtaking. The long distance overview of the cities and/or forests is reward in itself.

Nolan North delivers once again.  Enough said.

The story is action packed, characters are compelling.

The only thing I would like to see in future Uncharted title would be a weapon upgrade system.  Also, it does feel like the same old formula, only they brought it to the equivalent to Insane Asylum level of awesome.  That sentence doesnt even make sence, probally because there is not enought words in the english language to form a phrase that captures the essence of what I, and everybody else, is trying to say.  So many Holy S%*@ moments, I can't say enough great things about it.

I think also if they ever do a Uncharted reboot this gendre of game can become a sandbox game, however I think that will stutter the level of action that comes our way in this chapter based game.  Anyway, I digress.

To bad you call of duty nerds are missing out on this.  Funny thing is, they will never see this review, so my comments are falling on deaf ears.
