Many gamers found the news that we would no longer be adventuring alongside Nathan Drake devastating. However, judging by the new Uncharted: The Lost Legacy demo, Chloe and Nadine are more than capable of filling Nathan’s shoes.
The Uncharted: The Lost Legacy demo video has all the explosions, gunfights and narrow escapes one would expect from an Uncharted game. And while Chloe is the only playable character, the dynamic between the two female leads is electric. Hearing the two bickering as bullets whizz by their heads is refreshing and unlike Nathan both are driven by their own self-serving interests.
Lost Legacy threads the same path as the other Uncharted games. Most of the elements one would expect are present. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as there is a specific formula that makes an Uncharted game an Uncharted game. It’s great to see Naughty Dog exploring more of the franchise’s lesser known characters.
Lost Legacy has evolved from a DLC add-on to a stand alone game. Let’s hope Chloe and Nadine can do justice to the franchise.
