Uncharted 4 First Impressions: Better Than TLOU; Includes The Best Boss Fight in the Series So Far


Uncharted 4, one of the most anticipated games due this year (and perhaps the most anticipated game since the launch of PlayStation 4), will be available soon for everyone. However, there are some lucky early owners who were able to get their hands on the game before the official release, scheduled for May 10.

The first impressions are extremely positive overall. For example, Neogaf user Skele7on is so impressed with Uncharted 4 that he would rate it above The Last of Us, Naughty Dog's PlayStation 3 masterpiece and winner of many 2013 GOTY awards.

I have finished, I have seen the sights and traveled seas.
I have laughed, felt and been amazed.
Glorious sights and wonderful dialogue.
Truly an adventure fitting of "a thiefs end"

This game is better than TLOU, it is just simply wonderful.
From start to finish, nothing but an absolute joy.
I am bitter now, as I didn't want this adventure to end.
I just wish there was another stone to turn, puzzle to solve.

But alas the great adventure is over.
Now I shall wait for DLC, just so I can taste another thrill.

You guys are in for one hell of a ride.
Stay calm and spoiler free,
I can't wait to hear of your own adventures.

Waiting for multiplayer to open up now.

Played on normal.
Completed in 13 hours 22 minutes 25 seconds

I can confirm those modes are legit.
There's a ton of them and also audio modes too

The modes he's referring to are in-game filters such as this cel-shaded one shared by Alex James, another early owner, but there are also gameplay modifiers that can be unlocked.

Alex James also talked about the game a bit on Twitter. He enjoyed the game immensely, though he can't quite decided yet if it's better than The Last of Us like the aforementioned Skele7on.

He also said that Uncharted 4 includes the best boss fight in the series so far, while adding that the final one is "special" and will be a "talking point".

It looks like Naughty Dog was right about Uncharted 4 being the longest game in the series and apparently there's even stuff to do off the main track.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, the final chapter of Nathan Drake's history, will release in nine days exclusively for PlayStation 4.
