It’s hard for me to stay biased when it comes to Uncharted because it’s my favorite franchise. Anytime an Uncharted game is released, I am going to play it. This game is absolutely no different, it’s a fantastic tight action-packed ride.
This game originally was meant to be DLC for Uncharted 4 but as Naughty Dog was having so much fun with the DLC that it made more sense for it to become a stand-alone game rather than DLC. It’s not a full priced game and in my opinion, I absolutely think its worth the $40. Of course, as I said. It’s hard for me to stay biased because it’s Uncharted and I just love this franchise.
In the Lost Legacy, it doesn’t have franchise icon Nathan Drake which is a bold move. Nathan Drake is definitely one of the major faces of PlayStation and his face alone sells games. It’s kind of like Nintendo making A Legend of Zelda game but without Link.
Instead of the game being about Nathan Drake, The Lost Legacy is about Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross. Some people were very excited about Chloe, I was never that excited about the game having her as the protagonist. It’s not that I didn’t like her, I always felt like Elena was the better fit for Nathan Drake.
Even though in Uncharted 4, Nadine was necessarily on the “good” side. I still liked her as a character. Any character that has the ability to take on both Drake brothers (Nathan and Sam) and win easily. She is a certifiable bad ass.
So the two set out on an adventure across India to find an Ancient Indian artifact. The premise and the story are all very Uncharted like. There is character development with Chloe, Nadine and their relationship together. The two start out, not really liking one another but as the game progresses you really see that relationship grow.
I’m not going to spoil, the games big reveal but there is a surprise character that’s brought back from the previous games. I really ended up liking this character a lot more, Naughty Dog did a great job of making this prior character much more likable. Plus they really provide some great comic relief. It’s not necessarily, hilarious but it has that Marvel Cinematic Universe humor. Its action packed experience with a little bit of humor sprinkled in.
For personally, this was a must buy. I really enjoyed my time with the game and really my only complaint is that its too short. I know a lot of people will disagree with me and they’re happy with the length.
