Uncharted 1: Average. I could tell from the first few hours it relies heavily on graphics and presentation to get the game sold, doesn't have any real substance. Heavly scripted, especially in the platforming department. To call it a semi-platformer is an insullt to real platformers. Sorry, but pressing X when near something an auto-snapping regardless of timing to the next part is not platforming. But for the first game the story was pretty engaging so I'll give it that. No reason to ever play it again though.

Uncharted 2: More of the same to be honest. It improved on some very subtle aspects but overall was just as average. The story was recycled from the first, no originality there at all. One of the most dissapointing final bosses ever. I was expecting a big badass mutant that would take ages to finally kill and yet it was a normal dude who was a pushover in every way. Very anti-climactic.

Uncharted 3: More of the same again. Few steps back actually but the mutiplayer was better than U2 so I'll give that. Probably the highlight of this mediocre game. Worst part of the game was the HUGE buildup....to absolutely nothing at the end. Made the whole story feel like a waste of time. Again to my huge letdown almost copy and pasted the plot from U2.

IMO Sony needs to buy back the rights to Crash and I want to see Naughty Dog make Crash Bandicoot 4. They can do so much better than cookie cutter dudebro shooters.

the first uncharted felt like a game as it made the player feel like they were exploring a deserted island
the second game just felt like a straight up movie. it was just the player going from scene to scene to look at the pretty predetermined events.

This is true.

Ironically, U1 was the least linear of the 3. So I guess that's also a plus I forgot to mention.
