Parent Talk: Uncharted is the ideal T-rated series. It features non-gratuitous violence, suggestive themes and strong language. Anyone 13 years of age and older should have no problem playing either of these two phenomenal games.
Plays Like: A much better Tomb Raider. There is lots of action, platforming and a great deal of puzzles. I always think of Uncharted as the perfect match for the Indiana Jones franchise.
Review Basis: Played through and mastered Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
Unlike most of our reviews in which I would list the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, there’s little point in doing so for this compilation, as we already have reviews published. You can find both below.

For only $39.99 USD/CDN, you get two of the best videogames ever created. Uncharted provided that next-gen action adventure experience fans wanted, then Uncharted 2 cranked it up about twenty notches. The Dual Pack includes the Game of the Year Edition for Uncharted 2, meaning you receive all the DLC at no additional cost. That’s a steal for $40.
If you never had the opportunity to play either of these wonderful games, take advantage of this dual pack. Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will likely be waiting once you’re finished. Leave these games behind and you would miss out on what is arguably the best new IP introduced this generation.
