Uncharted 1 & 2 are action-adventure, third-person games exclusively on the Playstation 3 similar to the Tomb Raider series and the Indiana Jones films.

They follow Nathan Drake (right) as he explores the globe in search of long forgotten artifacts hidden in ancient temples and cavernous tombs. They both use real historical figures with twists of true events to create exciting stories, the first focuses on Francis Drake's discovery of El Dorado with the second being about Marco Polo's mysterious lost fleet of ships.

In the extras there are behind the scenes videos that show how they used extensive motion-capture with the actual voice actors for the cut-scenes making both games very cinematic, Nolan North brings tremendous character to Nathan Drake with a rakish charm similar to Indiana Jones or Captain Mal (from Firefly).

I recommend that you try and play them both, not just for the gameplay but the story too and the multiplayer makes for great fun for playing online.
