Published on 04/12/2022 at 10:45
With Uncharted, Naughty Dog earned a reputation as a triple-A “popcorn” studio. Yep, The Adventures of Nathan Drake is the epitome of Hollywood adventure gaming. His games are not lacking in very impressive scenes, as we will see in this nice selection.
“A surprising find” (Uncharted 1)
Logically, we start with the first Uncharted, released in 2007 on PS3. Even if the following opuses will take giant steps in terms of technique and staging, this component defended itself, casually, rather well in its time. At the time, the famous Nathan Drake went in search of the legendary El Dorado! All in all, our hero will come across a german submarine in the middle of the jungle (yes). How did the metal monster end up there? Mystery and ball of gum, as they say – but the most important thing is that it contains in its belly a decisive clue for the future. The Nazis were also on the trail of Eldorado – and the captain of the ship, dead but on the spot, protects a decisive information. A truly defining moment.
“Caught in the Crossfire” (Uncharted 2)
Impossible to continue without “Caught in the crossfire”, the introductory scene of this Uncharted 2. In this one, our hero Nathan Drake wakes up, very severely damaged, in a train. So no, he didn’t take the TGV for his new trip. Here, the machine is suspended vertically, nose in the void…and as the JV’s Indiana Jones realizes this, everything begins to fall apart. Suddenly, the bugger is propelled against the emergency railing – at the rear of the aircraft – and must quickly regain his senses so as not to fall and die. His strength has almost disappeared, but he is advancing somehow, before the gigantic metal carcass passes under his feet, in extremis, in a final leap. An anthology scene for a fantastic video game.
“Passager clandestin” (Uncharted 3)
Of all the episodes in the Uncharted franchise, the third installment contains the most spectacular scenes. But in The Drake Illusion, there is a very special one that will be remembered for a long time, in the chapter “Stowaway”. Our good Nathan Drake – always ready to do anything – enters a plane that could well bring him to the group of Marlowe, the game’s main antagonist. not hesitate to open the huge loading door. Below lies a vast desert! Of course, two or three bullets later, the machine flaps, forcing Nate to cling to whatever comes to hand.
“Like the nose in the middle of the face” (Uncharted 4)
Even if Uncharted 4 does not follow the path traced by Uncharted 3, in a sort of Hollywood one-upmanship, the last episode of the adventures of Nathan Drake contains more than one anthology scene! Perhaps the most impressive is the action moment of the chapter “like the nose in the middle of the face”, which takes our hero and his lifelong sidekick – Sully – to a crowded market, in search of the ultimate clue. which can lead them to the pirate city of Libertalia. Except that, once this clue is recovered, things will degenerate a little! A huge vehicle armored will no longer let go of Nathan and Sully’s butt, whether on foot, in a car, or when good old Nate is hanging from a crane. It all ends even on a motorcycle. One such example.
“Ville natale” (The Last of Us 1)
Decidedly, Naughty Dog likes to mark the spirits from the introductory scene and The Last of Us is no exception to the rule. Here, in the first minutes of the adventure, you play as Sarah, Joel’s daughter! The poor girl is awakened in the middle of the night by a disturbing call from her uncle Tommy. No matter how hard she looks everywhere, Joel is nowhere to be found… Suddenly, he arrives through the French window of the office. “Sarah, are you okay?” he asks, visibly worried, “stay away from the door”. Seconds later, a creature bursts into the room. It’s necessary run away very quickly. By car ? Yes, offers Tommy. But in the city center, it’s the apocalypse! As everything goes up in smoke, the father and his daughter come across a soldier. Yes, the rest, you know it.
“Rat King” (The Last of Us Part 2)
To end on a high note, why not talk about a boss? Whether in Uncharted or The Last of Us, there are quite a few memorable enemies, but nothing that could come close to the “Rat King” in The Last of Us Part 2! This horrible monster – result of the fusion between several zombies – pass by to say hello to Abby, when she walks in the basement of Seattle. Before its appearance on the scene, there is a nice rise in tension, based on the not very reassuring noises of rooms to be cleaned. And after a brief chase against the creature, there is no choice but to confront it. Whether by its design, its arrival in the sequence, or even all the efforts necessary to overcome it, the Rat King will remain one of the best bosses of the American studio.
