From bullet-dodging train rides to skydiving from a plane without a parachute, Uncharted is packed with memorable moments.
From bombastic explosive set-pieces to quieter moments of exploration, Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series has a stack of highlights and its fair share of hidden gems to boot. Take a look below to whet your appetite or dive straight into the video to relive some classic hijinks with Nathan Drake and the gang in Uncharted’s Best Moments.
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune kicked it all off back when the PS3 launched. Nate and sidekick Sully find a submarine in a strange place and it’s the first time we really see Drake in action, scaling fortress walls where even the slightest mistake could see him plummet to his death. Death, however, seems altogether more attractive compared to the fate the treasure hunters meet in chapter 17, the Heart of the Vault.
The action stepped up a gear in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and things get off to a spectacularly fraught and frigid start as Nathan Drake finds himself stuck between “A Rock and a Hard Place”. Drake shows off his gunplay skills too, taking down snipers in the monastery and taking on a tank with little more than a pistol – at least to begin with. He has little luck with trains, attacked by a helicopter gunship and dodging bullets while riding the rails. But when Drake journeys up into the mountains, he faces with something much more terrifying…
Few set-pieces are as unforgettable as chapter 17 in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, when Drake boards a cargo plane in a rather unconventional manner, only to find himself hurtling back to earth without a parachute moments later. He has similarly bad luck on board a passenger liner, which capsizes and begins to sink and Drake doesn’t have time to get to a lifeboat.
We also get a glimpse of our hero’s past, with a young Nathan Drake making a daring rooftop escape while goons pursue, plus there’s a horseback chase and a public toilet brawl that’s ends with a smashing finale.
