Ah. OK. A Crushing re-play is inevitable. I got Platinum on the first three after all...

Whoever came up with what I assume is the final boss fight, should be banned from making games for life. Its probably one of the worst I've come across.

I'm on chapter 20 and I have to say since
, it's not a patch on what the game was the first 14 chapters. It's almost as if somebody else directed these bits. Obviously just conjecture but perhaps this is the Amy Hennig directed portion of the game and they've kept some of those bits.

I hope the last 4 chapters improve as I was loving this before.

Yes, definitely, I agree. Basically a quick time event without the button prompts.

Saying that, all four games have dire final bosses.

Finished it, loved it but fell flat towards the last 3rd. Overall though excellent. I'd say Last Of Us is still Naughty Dog's best game though.

That's worrying. Most reviews I've seen say it doesn't get going properly until Episode 8 or so, and now you're saying it's not very good in the last 3rd either?

So we've got a 3rd of a good game here? 10/10!!

I just finished it to, I loved it. Still think Uncharted 2 is better but this could be the best game on PS4.

That's probably not far from the truth.

If you put a lot of emphasis on the story, its probably a 9. Its almost as good as The Witcher 3.

If you don't care about story and want great gameplay, it's somewhere between a 7 or 8. Shooting is worse than GTA/Division. Unarmed combat is worse than the Arkham series (actually, its worse than most recent games). Drake can't run and can't jump (except when he needs to, in order to progress). There's too much quicktime nonsense, and as an adventure game, it's nowhere near as good as Rise of the Tomb Raider.

On the positives, the climbing works as well as in any game I've played (I love the way you can adjust his arm position so that he grabs to move on, instead of having to continuously jump). Some of the set-pieces take your breath away, and it looks great (then again, many current AAA games do).

Overall, it was decent fun. I've no interest in having a second playthrough though.

I actually quite liked the first 8 chapters. The few chapters are more like the original Uncharted which does get a bit reptitive.

Well apart from getting stuck in a couple of places, I think the whole thing's been absolutely great so far. No complaints here re:story, climbing, fighting, gunplay, anything really. Best game on PS4 for me alongside Until Dawn, although less addictive than Resogun, and not counting remasters (in which case The Last of Us wins).

Think I'm on chapter 19 or 20 now.

I think the start is fine, maybe a tiny bit slow to some other games but I would say "its getting go after chapter 8 etc" is not true. I like how the game lets the story "breathe" rather than all action past games.

On Chapter 12 since last sunday (been busy this week) but one of my favourite uncharted games so far.

I thought it was consistently good, and the pacing very well handled. Uncharted 3 however is a game that feels very cobbled together.

Stuck again. Not sure if it's because I suck at it, or bad level design. Chapter 20 this time.

If that's where I think it is, I'm stuck at the same place. I am on crushing though....even turning on auto-aim isn't helping.....I've had to give it a couple of days rest.

Sounds like you're stuck in a gunfight... I'm stuck as to where to go (again).

That bit took me many attempts. I eventually gave in and looked on youtube.

I finished this at the weekend. Great game, will go back and replay at a harder difficulty (played at standard level I think - got three trophies for finishing it). Managed to complete without any spoilers or assistance. Want to get more treasures and trophies. The multiplayer holds very little interest to me.

Yeah, that's what I had to do too. Chapter 21 now. Gotta be near the end, surely!
