Many plot twists that I didn't see coming, an overall good game with a few minor glitches

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is a good game with stunning graphics that are just below a handful of games. Naughty Dog surprised be with the bewildering brutallity of this game though, with each game that they've made, they've made a point of making their games more violent, daunting and dark. This game has you fighting pirates, private soldiers, and zombie nazis. If you watch the two videos that are out for the second game it looks even darker than this game.
The Graphics feel as though they were taken out of a picture, almost every single environment feels as though it was a watercolor.
There are few too many guns in the game. It is fun to take a Desert-5 a.k.a magnum to the enemies and blow the crap out of them.
Nate (the main character) is very comical and seems to have a knack for choosing the wrong friends, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and making occasional poor choices. Hey there wouldn't be a game if he didn't get caught by a few pirates and find the treasure in the first place he looks. And like all loveable characters he has a generic catch phrase that is shared by the apparent love interest Elena. "Oh, Crap!"
The Jak games are not for young children, but i'm sure lenient parents would let an eight year old play it. This game however, is standing on the proverbial bridge leading to M games. When you shoot someone a plume of blood behind them. They say s*** more times in a T game then I've ever heard before and having to watch a zombie bite into Nate's spinal cord is a little disturbing.
The plot is beautifully written, with enough plot twists to keep you playing until the end.
For all of you action/adventure/horror game lovers, this game is well worth the $60. Make sure you download trophy support if you didn't get it with the game too. I highy recommend buying this game.
