[Opinion] Budget Game: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
I usually ask the opinion of the GameStop clerk on a title before I purchase and weigh that in to my decision. So I asked the clerk about a few games then came to Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. This from what I've heard was a must have title for any PS3 owner so I picked it up and took it to the counter to get the clerk's opinion expecting him to tell me what I already knew. To my surprise he told me that game was not worth it, and that Uncharted 2 was the game I really wanted. Maybe he was just simply trying to up-sell me but I don't know. I went with my instinct and bought the game anyways.
I have to tell you that this game is simply amazing. The soundtrack alone is better then 99% of the games even to this date. The bright and vibrant color pallet used is a happy change from most of the dark and monotone games that are out. The game has a witty charm about it also. I don't really know how to explain it but it's just instantly likable.
If your looking for a dark thriller with adult themes and lots of blood and gore, this is the wrong game. This game is a light hearted, gorgeous, classic story that I'm sure will keep you entertained.
My budget gamer score is 5/5. For the price of this game used or even new at like a GameStop makes this a no lose buy.
