Uncharted Games – From Worst To Best
1. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
2009’s Uncharted 2 beats out the final title by being in and of itself the sole definition of what an Uncharted game is, and beats out its direct sequel in having a logical story and a lack of plot-holes. Its set-pieces are outmatched by those found in Drake’s Deception, but even then it holds its own with the famous train sequence coming to mind.
The introduction of Chloe’s character – which also works against Uncharted 3 and 4 as they lack such an integral character – rounded out the perfect cast of Drake, Elena, Chloe, and Sully as the faces of the series. It took me a long time after Uncharted 3 – and almost instantly after 4 – to finally admit what I’ve known for a while.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the best Uncharted title and it only gets me excited to see what Naughty Dog can do in the second Last of Us game and find out whether that too will be the best in its respective series.
Here’s hoping Naughty Dog don’t stray away from what makes their post-apocalyptic masterpiece unique and deliver better titles in chronological order instead of fans vigorously debating whether Uncharted is better than Uncharted 2. Believe me I know, as I was on both sides of the argument at different times.
