Drake's Deception is the third main game in the Uncharted series. A couple of years have passed for Nathan Drake, an Indiana Jones-like adventurer with a knack to find himself in all kinds of trouble. And as usual, he always pull his loyal friend and companion, Sully, along with him. This story starts with two of them trying to sell Nate's ring for a large sum of money. It just so happens that both sides start accusing each other and the deal turns out in an all out brawl. The game immediately introduces a whole new gameplay element that focuses on melee combat which consists kicking and evading enemy hits, and a combination of both which may result in certain special moves during which Nate can also interact with surrounding objects.
The story eventually builds up to a search for the legendary lost city which takes the player through various different locations and environments, from streets of England to castles of France and Rub' al Khali, one of the largest deserts in the world. Basic gameplay is very similar to previous two games, with many contextual moves and newly added melee art of fighting while not carrying weapon. The cinematics are much more seamless with actual gameplay and there is no cinematics viewer after finishing the game like it was in prequels. But there are still, unrelated to an actual story, many antic artifacts lying around throughout the game to collect during the adventure, which results in trophy awards.
Aside from the story campaign which is split in couple dozen chapters, the games comes with cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes.
