Uncharted was much more like a spiritual successor to Indiana Jones, with Nathan Drake reminding me a lot of Nathan Fillion as the lead (beyond just the name). They were great & at least Nathan did it for a living & was quite honest about his intentions to sell artifacts to museums for a small fortune. Not to mention actually having some relatable & meaningful dialogue. Nobody ever gave a **** about anything Lara said.

All that leads me to ask whether Uncharted is becoming a franchise in dire need of innovation? Maybe therell be the option of playing it in 3D, which will no doubt get the Sony Computer Entertainment PR machine and the PlayStation fanboys shouting, but will there be anything extra for the ordinary gamer on the street? The fancy graphics and neat story have become somewhat rote by now. Sure its a very solid franchise for the PlayStation 3 platform, one that has been smothered in critical and commercial acclaim, but it already feels that Uncharted is doing exactly what Lara once did. Tomb Raider too peaked early before settling into a by-the-numbers rhythm.
