Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Review

It’s barely been a year since Uncharted 4 hit the shelves, so you can’t be faulted for thinking that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is just a cynical cash grab. Series stalwart Nathan Drake is gone and so are Elena and Sully, his merry supporting cast. Instead, there’s treasure hunter Chloe Frazer and mercenary Nadine Ross – two strong female characters who debuted in Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 4 respectively. They’re a far cry from the roguish charms of Drake and Sully, but they end up being more than competent replacements.

They’re strong personalities with interesting back stories that are fleshed out through the game. It works well and comes together quite naturally with their unsteady alliance giving impetus to the proceedings, helping keep Uncharted: The Lost Legacy fresh. That’s necessary, given that the familiar loop of exploration, platforming, shooting, and puzzle solving that is core to the gameplay experience hasn’t changed much. It’s a well worn formula but it doesn’t feel stale, thanks to Ross and Frazer.

Throughout Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, you control Chloe Frazer, while Nadine Ross is AI-controlled. Ross ends up being crucial in battling your foes, working with Frazer for some spectacular takedowns. This time around, puzzles aren’t as easy as previous games – a welcome change as you’d be forced to think more than usual and the outcome feels all the more satisfying. At the same time, if you fail often enough, Ross chimes in to help out, so you don’t get stuck.
