A review of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy on the gaming blog Very Good Games
Some legends tell that the tusk of Ganesh was cut by Parashurama. In fact, Ganesh, who has an elephant’s head, allowed this happened to prove the power of the axe, given to Parashurama by Shiva, the father of Ganesh. And then… where that broken part is? Is someone bold enough to try and find it? You know, guys, we talk not about the Hindu tradition but about the game from one of the best adventure series of the whole gaming culture - Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

All the events of it are whirling around that legendary tusk. And players become involved in a thrilling search for it, into protection of this priceless artifact from evil gangsters, and even into saving lots of people from horrible explosion…

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has been made exclusively for PlayStation 4 game consoles. Let’s have a closer look at this very interesting release!

A long tradition of adventures

The game series Uncharted is a super interesting story of an adventurer, who looks for ancient relics all over the world. First four Uncharted games have Nathan Drake as the main hero. The guy got lots of fans among gamers, but his career has been finished (probably) in the game Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has a new hero, a girl known from the second game of the series, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. She is Chloe Frazer, and it is her destiny - to find the tusk of Ganesh!

Adventures of this game series have lots in common with some movies and other games, with the very tradition of adventurers, a bit obsessed with ancient artifacts. Do you know Indiana Jones and Lara Croft? But Uncharted is not a copy of something! It is one of the pillars that support and even create the tradition of such adventures.

The excitement of participation!

Of course, it is a super experience – to watch a nice movie. But can it be compared with the feeling of taking part in the storyline, of being an adventurer, at least in the virtuality? And that feeling makes the whole Uncharted so interesting for gamers.

The developers from Naughty Dog didn’t expect to make a success only on that participation in adventures. Their work is totally amazing – games are like the best Hollywood movies by their quality. But what about Uncharted: The Lost Legacy?

Let’s not spoil the game!

It is the worst thing to make with an adventure game – to reveal the whole story before the start of playing. Ok, you know something already! Chloe looks for the tusk of Ganesh in India. But why not to discover everything else by yourself, during playing? If you like adventure games, this one is worthy of your attention!

In the game, we control Chloe and explore with her beautiful locations, searching for some objects, fighting many enemies, and moving through the plot. The girl has a partner, Nadine Ross, and their dialogues are filling the game space – heroines have quite different characters… 

Players have some freedom in exploring locations, and in choosing the behavior in the game – to fight openly or to use the stealth tactic. We can use firearms to kill all those evil enemies or perform miracles of melee battles. 

The game is rather shorter than other editions of Uncharted. But this doesn’t make it worse – it’s just a smaller adventure (nearly 8 hours of the story). Everything here is on the high-quality level of the series: graphics, sounds, gameplay… The only thing that may make some dissatisfaction is the lack of innovations. But on the other hand, like this is even better – gamers got classic adventures in their excellent shape. 

This game hasn’t its own multiplayer mode, but gives players an access to the multiplayer of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End with competitions of players in virtual locations and with a cooperative survival mode.
