With the review embargo for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (PS4) having been lifted this morning, it’s not at all surprising to discover that Nate’s latest adventure has been receiving rave reviews across the board – with many websites awarding the title 9-10 out of 10. Indeed, you can check out some of the reviews for Uncharted 4 below, with the “action-adventure third-person shooter platform video game” presently sitting at 94% on Metacritic:

Push Sqaure – 10/10
Hardcore Gamer – 4.5/5
Eurogamer – Recommended
The Sixth Axis – 10/10
VideoGamer – 8/10
Polygon 9/10
PlayStation Lifestyle – 10/10
Telepgraph – 5/5
USGamer – 4.5/5
Destructoid – 9.5/10
GamesTM – 9/10

To be honest, and with Uncharted 4being handled by Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann of The Last Of Us fame“, I always expected the game to be of an impeccably high quality. And whilst my copy was pre-ordered many months ago, one can’t help but reminisce over Simon Parkin’s review when he awarded series predecessor Uncharted 3 a less than stellar 8/10 (as well as the amount of chastising that he received from readers in the comments section).

Whilst I am in no doubt of the game’s assured quality, on this occasion however, there are very few dissenting reviews which don’t adheringly conform to the cognizant appraisal that Uncharted 4 is getting. So whilst Eurogamer and Videogamer’s opinions are both outliers, their reviews don’t necessarily reflect the general level of appraisal that Nate’s swansong is getting. And it’s worth bearing in mind also that I can’t seem to find a review from (my favourite games reviewer) Simon Parkin. Maybe he decided to abstain from commenting on Uncharted 4 on this occasion, as I would have loved to have read his opinion. Still, the day is young… And knowing that he writes for The Guardian (who haven’t as yet published their review), as well as Edge (for which the latest issue came out before the embargoed date), it’s only a matter of time before his opinions become known. But then again, with reviewers such as ‘ItsGWC’ setting such a high benchmark with their irksome attempts to annoy series fans, it’ll be interesting to discover as to how Simon Parkin’s review is positioned.

Anyway, with all the hype for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End reaching unprecedented levels, I can imagine there to be quite a bit of interest in the game. And at present, the cheapest price for pre-ordering the game is as follows:
