UPDATE (05-22-12): The game is basically like Indiana Jones meets modern-day weapons and tropes. Also, more third-person-shooting. It’s now among my favorite games of all time.
While I was in college I met a woman named Emily. She was pretty nice, though my main reason for knowing her was because I was friends with her then-boyfriend. Emily went on to UCLA and then into the entertainment business, appearing in shows like E.R. She’s now the star of a the SyFy show Haven. But, before she got that big break, she did some voice acting for a video game called UNCHARTED.
When I bought my PS3 it came with INFAMOUS 2, which I loved. But, since then I haven’t been able to find another game that really worked for me. I’ve played a few of the really big games, but they usually fall short on one level or another. So, I decided to pick up UNCHARTED. Sure, I’d been hearing great things about it from everyone, but what really made the decision for me was because I wanted to see how Emily Rose chose to play a voice-only character. Turns out, she’s pretty darn good.
And, so far, the game is really fun. Great story, good gameplay (a bit heavy on the cinematics, but they work).
