Uncharted proves everything that it came to prove. Its storytelling is unmatched by any other NA developer, and the characters are sprinkled with just the right amount of personality to rise above the cookie-cutter heroes of other games. But there's more to the game then just the story and the characters. The game also succeeds in the shooting the platforming genres, and offers a seamless transition between the two. The platforming (the only game-play aspect that i wasn't sure about before I bought the game) proved to be a worth next-generation evolution of the genre. Also, I just can't say enough about the graphics in the game, the whole world feels alive, and the character animations are second to none. Sure there are the few problems that plague every game (texture pop-in, slight screen tearing) but overall it is a very complete and well polished experience that you'll be coming back to for years.
