Naughty Dog’s Indiana Jones-style saga starring Nathan Drake has been giving us all the gamer feels since 2007. With his roguish behavior, snarky humor, and derring-do feats, he’s the kinda guy you’d all want to aspire to. And after almost a decade, the Uncharted series will finally come to a close in its fourth and final installment, A Thief's End.

Taking place two years after the events of Uncharted 3, our hero Nathan Drake has finally quit the adventuring ’biz and settled down with photojournalist Elena in wedded domestic bliss. However, this game has other plans for him and suddenly the opportunity comes a-knocking. And guess who’s at the other door? His long-lost older brother Sam (whom he thought has been dead, mind you), who’s pulling him out of retirement for “one last mission.” This fateful meeting sets things in motions and now both Nathan and Sam (voiced by Troy Baker) are out to hunt down Captain Henry Avery’s treasure. 

Check out how critics are in awe (while some get sentimental) about this popular PlayStation adventure game and what they have to say. With mind-blowing graphics, interactive storytelling, adrenaline-pumping action, creative multiplayer options, and did we mention the photorealistic graphics? Don’t forget the ridiculously high rating across the board. This AAA title makes us want to get our grubby paws on the controller and play stat.

Uncharted 4 is redemptive in every sense, and there's no question that this game (and this franchise) will have its place in history as a headwind toward the next evolution of video game storytelling.” —Tyler Stewart for FHM.com

“Were it a film, Uncharted 4 could make a handsome sum in royalties for the number of times it will undoubtedly appear at Hollywood conferences and summits, where it will be picked apart for lessons on how to create the future of interactive cinema.” —Chris Plante for Theverge.com

“By the end, it justifies the creation of a sequel in this nearly decade-old series beyond the need to check off the box between Ratchet & Clank and Wipeout on the PlayStation platform franchise list.” —Stephen Totilo for Kotaku.com

A Thief's End has some of the best world designs I've ever seen. You're treated to a cascade of sprawling locales in nearly every kind of terrain imaginable. Both inside and out, regardless of where you go, you'll likely stop for a few seconds just to take it all in.” —Jeff Bakalar for Cnet.com

Uncharted 4's multiplayer captures the essence of the main game and builds a great experience around it. This time, it's not stealth and survival; it's bombastic, swashbuckling, wisecracking action that's full of flamboyant flair and personality.” —Ian Higton for Eurogamer.net

“It's not that Uncharted 4 left me exasperated or unsatisfied. Quite the opposite, actually: A Thief's End presents a pitch-perfect conclusion to the Uncharted series, and should serve as a benchmark for other franchises approaching their twilight years. There are no threads left unresolved, no relationships left unexplored and no shirts left partially untucked. It's as cathartic an ending as you could hope for, and then some.” —Griffin McElroy for Polygon.com

“At its best, the combat’s quick-thinking gameplay, wide enemy variety, and clever incorporation of platforming can really get the blood pumping.” —Nick Plessas for Egmnow.com

Uncharted 4 carries on the series’ proud tradition of peerless polish and style, with a great multiplayer component to boot. Most importantly, it’s a gentle sendoff to the rag-tag group of characters we’ve known for nine years. A worthy thief’s end, indeed." —Lucy O’Brien for Ign.com

Uncharted 4 is a challenge to the medium. In its writing, in its design, in its understanding of what makes games unique, Uncharted 4 is something to aspire to. It's a shining example. And we'll be talking about it for years to come." —Mike Mahardy for Gamespot.com

CRASH BANDICOOT!

Uncharted 4 has a nice little easter egg that we couldn't help but tell you. There's an in-game virtual PS1 which allows you to play the PS1 classic, which also happens to be a Naughty Dog title. It's the cherry on top! 

This nice little Easter Egg is already all over the Internet, and it's a small detail, but you actually get to play the PS1 classic Crash Bandicoot in-game, on a virtual PS1. This is an awesome callback, and not the only homage you'll find to a beloved video game of old within A Thief's End.

 

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is now available on the PlayStation 4.
