Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
"There must be a beginning of any great matter, but continuing unto the end, until it be thoroughly finished yields the true glory. " The watery words of Sir Francis Drake drift across the opening sequence of Drake's Fortune, a perfect motto the whole gaming experience to come.
But we're quickly back to the present and who can forget their first view of Naughty Dog's first PlayStation 3 outing? Amazing cinematic-quality looks, convincing characterisation, snappy dialogue, a natural, unforced humour, all the pillars of the series are there from the very first scene. Within moments of the titles fading, Drake and Elena have discovered an ancient treasure, argued and come under attack from pirates, perfectly establishing the series' impeccable sense of swashbuckling adventure.
