Who said if Nathan Drake is not around we can’t have an Uncharted game? The Lost Legacy is brand new, mini adventure based in the Uncharted universe that packs every punch its predecessors presented.

While the Drake brothers are enjoying the riches of Henry Avery, the beautiful Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross are scouring Indian vistas for a lost artifact.

With The Lost Legacy, Naughty Dog have granted us an overdue look into the stories of these two protagonists. We may have encountered them during Uncharted 2 and 4, but this is their moment to shine. Their background unfolds beautifully throughout their dynamic conversations across a semi-open world.

You have massive and beautiful Indian vistas to explore and many secrets to uncover. You traverse the land with your jeep, driving between ancient structures across the map, looking for clues, solving well-designed environmental puzzles.

My only complaints about the game are two-fold: the map, though large, feels sparse and unpopulated, and the antagonist is completely forgettable, doing little beyond justifying the existence of an antagonist.

The Lost Legacy runs smoothly on the PS4, but to see it in its best pixels, you owe it to yourself to see it running on a PS4 Pro. Once you are done with the main story mode, you can always go for your regular dose of multiplayer. Whether in competitive or co-op mode, a number of unlockables will keep you coming back for more fun.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a welcome entry and a beautiful addition to the Uncharted lineup. Though it is not a full-on Uncharted title, it has all the elements that makes for a great Uncharted game. From the jaw-dropping scenery and environment to the clever storylines and set pieces, Chloe and Nadine more than makeup for the missing Drakes and don’t fall short on capturing your senses.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a PS4 exclusive and was made available for us to review via a press kit from Playstation.
