After a few frustrating delays for owners of the PS4, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End finally made its way to our console. The holy grail of PS4 exclusives lands in gamers’ hands next week and we have finished our review just in time to be able to tell you about it when the NDA agreement was lifted. Playing the game was an emotional journey and it is amidst these emotions that we take our pen in order to let you know if Drake’s last adventure offers a fitting conclusion to a series that started 9 years ago on PS3.
Note: We are currently forbidden from posting any captures (videos/screenshots) until next Monday at 3pm (French Time).
Note 2: Kudos to Alimokrane for the quick translation of the verdict and +/- section.
There are so many things to talk and share about our experience with Uncharted 4, but that will certainly spoil and reveal too many surprises which await you and this is something we simply cannot do. What we can tell you is this: after 5 days spent playing Nathan Drake’s last adventure, we have definitely been given the conclusion the series deserves. This is an end of an era for a hero we have followed in immersive stories, have grown to adore and sadly now have to say goodbye to. The game is clearly a well crafted love letter to fans which, despite small issues inherent in the series in general, will remain a benchmark for future generations. The game is an unforgettable and emotional adventure which will be yours to experience in the next few days, and we can't wait to hear what you think.

- Naughty Dog's tongue-in- cheek references
- The length of the game
- The photo mode
- Too many other positives to list them all
- On the downside
- Homing enemy grenades
- Blind enemies when in stealth, unrealistically sharp shooters in combat
- Companion AI is not very helpful during gunfights
- Saying goodbye to Drake, Elena and the others
