It may have been with her Lara Croft Tomb Raider series that action-adventure games as we know them now initiated, the fact is that Nathan Drake and his Uncharted series the graceful young lady has now eclipsed in all respects. And if after the first three parts of the Uncharted series have not been clear enough, Naughty Dog decided that discussion with Part Four final in his favor. The (temporary?) Finale of the Uncharted franchise is not only the best game in the series, but also one of the best games that has ever seen the genre.

So let’s start with one of the few criticisms that could be unleashed on this adventure. The developers claimed, when the game was still in development and had just announced that the game would run at full 1080p and 60fps. This is not entirely successful. From performance considerations, it was decided to run the single at 30fps. In this way, the graphic quality was not affected. In multiplayer, the benchmark of 60fps was incidentally indeed achieved, but that is something other than “the whole game.”

A grumbler who grinds to there, because the reality is that the framerate never a problem in the singleplayer. In the fiercest moments come few drops of which are well visible to the naked eye, but beyond that the game runs smoothly. The positive side of kowtowing to 30fps fortunately visible. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End features excellent graphics. So much so that we can best dare to propose that this is the best ever console game. Nathan Drake and his men come in many different locations correctly, and one location looks more beautiful than the other. Especially in the more tropical environments which we were regularly paused to enjoy the view.

But that’s just the beginning. The audiovisual quality is all over again. The light in a dusty room in the sense as impressive as a beautiful vista on an island in Madagascar. In addition, there is that the game has excellent working antialiasing. Everything therefore looks quite sharp and smart. Also the design and animation of the characters is a high level, and that level is again a step in between scenes up. This is done subtly, because the game alternates between scenes and gameplay effortlessly with each other, without requiring black screens or similar among them. while of course the graphic quality changes, but that happens in such a way that the player hardly notice it, and that deserves a big compliment.

The same compliment can be distributed to the sound. Regular soundtrack is surprisingly out of the corner, in a very positive way. The effects are also fine, and the voices of the different characters. That high level in the voice acting we have become quite accustomed Naughty Dog, Uncharted 4 but goes one step further. It helps to keep the cut scenes engaging and credible. So goes the audiovisual presentation of the whole as a near perfect base on which Naughty Dog has a game to build that applies in advance as one of the best games this year.
