Yep, definitely willing to give the entire trilogy another spin...although, I do admit that not including any multiplayer at all is a tad annoying and confusing.
Well, at the very least, completionists will be thankful that there's no Trophy tied into multiplayer this time.
Is it worth $60? Given how awesome the games are, I'd say yes. Now, is it worth $60 if you've played and finished every game on the PS3? That depends if the better visuals are worth it.
Personally? I'd say it is.
While I'm excited at the thought of reliving each Uncharted game again, I'm a little tired of the remaster trend that has taken hold of the games industry.
With so many games sitting in my backlog and waiting to be played, should I really be replaying three games that I've already played numerous times before? Inevitably, I probably will. What's really exciting about this though, is that people who missed out on Uncharted in the PS3 era finally have a chance and an excuse to check them out, and that's a huge win.
Since I own and have played Uncharted 2 & 3, I'm not personally interested in picking up The Uncharted Collection, but for those who haven't played the games yet and/or have hopped on to PlayStation platforms for the first time, this will be a great addition to their libraries.
However, I do feel like leaving out Golden Abyss will result in a missed opportunity to give the Vita some much-needed love and attention.The Uncharted 4 beta invite is a nice touch, though.
When remasters were relevant, they were HD collections. God of War Collection, Ratchet and Clank Collection, Team Ico Collection, the list goes on.
Now publishers are offering one-offs or, even worse, single games from a series.
They are halfheartedly getting a reading on where the public stands on their franchise and whether or not to move forward.
Naughty Dog doesn't allow things to be done halfway. With The Nathan Drake Collection they, with the help of Bluepoint Games, are not only releasing a complete trilogy that allows some to relive the near-perfect games of the PlayStation 3 era and others the opportunity to catch up before the release of Uncharted 4, but they are also throwing in Uncharted 4 beta access to freshen up the package.
A remaster with content that matches the price tag, nay, exceeds it, is something gamers have forgotten but have deserved all along. This is the time to speak with your wallet and support a remaster that shows respect to you as a consumer. Tons of content, the highest quality and something new.
Add to cart.
I have every Uncharted Platinum there is and really, I don't think I'll play them again.
While this is great for new PlayStation fans, long time gamers should be tired of this whole remaster-and-not-much-else line-up right now.
The other day, I was looking at all of my PS3 games and thinking how
super glad I was that they don't work in my PS4.
And then I was looking at my game shelf and realizing how little of it
is dedicated to snazzy, memorable, amazing PS4-exclusive games.
The solution is to keep buying PS3 games again. More remasters. Give
to me hot, cold, sideways and inside out. We need remasters of the
entire last generation, and we need them ASAP.
