Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
Top Critic Average
While based on the already brilliant Uncharted 4, The Lost Legacy does a fantastic job at creating its own unique identity. The adventure is dangerous, but it's also breathtakingly beautiful and the characters evolve with every step that you take. There isn't much to fault in this masterclass of an adventure game and Uncharted fans will undoubtedly love it even more.
For a game that started as a DLC and is now a full-blown standalone game, I can truly say that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a gem. A game so high-caliber that only Naughty Dog can produce and perfect. A game with such stunning visuals that the transition from cinematics to gameplay is so seamless you don't notice it at all.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy ticks just about every single box. Great gameplay, adventure, story, characters and voice acting.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is just as good as Uncharted 4 maybe even better besides the smaller playtime of 6-8 hours. It even manages to kill nearly all the shortcomings of the main game. Some of the fight Scenes are not as well made as in Uncharted 4 and the constant Selfie-Action of Chloe feels misplaced but if you look past that you'll get a full Uncharted Experience that leaves little to be desired.

A solid adventure whose gameplay should maybe take the 'Un' out of Uncharted
When Nathan ended his expeditions in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, most of us thought well Ok time for us to see what Naughty Dog was going to do with the series, and this is the result, a full Uncharted experience, yes the gameplay is similar however the developers took their time with the overall research of the history of the Indian culture and enhanced the story and narrative that just makes this a standalone title from Naughty Dog that we highly recommend.
Speculation that the Uncharted franchise would falter in the absence of Nathan Drake has been silenced courtesy of an always engaging campaign, an interesting cast of characters, some of the best puzzles and set-pieces in the franchise’s history
It’s a big adventure with a big heart wrapped up into a smaller expansion that is still unmistakably the Uncharted you love.
Lost Legacy is good at being an Uncharted game, and with two amazingly strong women in the forefront, you are not missing Nathan Drake for a second. Lost Legacy is a typical Uncharted game, including treasure hunting, relic findings, funny friendship, quirky remarks, lots of jokes and cool puzzles, but this time… this time there's more heart between the characters. Being the first Uncharted game without Nathan Drake as the protagonist, this is also the first game in the series with a woman as the playable character. And it does it with such attitude and grace it's hard to find arguments against it. Any gamer that wants a good story or that likes treasure hunting or puzzle solving will love this title, even if they haven't played any Uncharted games before. However I recommend playing the previous games in the series first to get the full backstory.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy might not have been what I expected and my 5 hours and 31 minutes was, surely I won't over exaggerate, decent. It wasn't great, it wasn't phenomenal, and it wasn't the best either but it's a solid and decent cinematic experience for its price.
