I've heard a few people say the same. I liked the story (despite a few predicable twists like Nathans brother betraying us) and the puzzles, but it tried too hard to be like Last of Us. It was really slow. No memorable set pieces, no supernatural element, not enough to consider interesting. It tried to be a character piece, but Nathan/Elena just aren't as interesting in as Joel and Ellie. The ending was cool, but most of the time leading up to it was boring and devolved into a bunch of platform locating/moving and random shooting. The stealth system was also not as well done as Last of Us.
Uncharted 2 is the pinnacle of the series so far. 4 just strayed too much from what made the game great.
I see Uncharted 4 as an extremely well made game. But I felt that way.
The game starts off slow, the set pieces were not even as good as Uncharted 3 and I just didn't care that much.
I also felt the game took elements from other games too much. While it was nice to have open areas that you can mark targets but I just felt like I was playing every other game that does the same thing.
But it did some awesome things and the most fun I had was driving around in the car. That was pretty cool. And some of the areas near the end was pretty damn traffic. Overall, great game but not nearly as memorable as the other three.
I'm a huge Naughty Dog fan and I hope after Last of Us 2...they do something new....maybe SCI FI!!
"Overall, The Lost Legacy will be more personal, "grounded story" according to Escayg, who spoke to Game Informer. Chloe is part Indian but has not been to the country in a while, so the game will reflect her personal past, particularly her relationship with her father, as well as her cultural heritage. As Escayg has previously stated, Hinduism will play a key role in the narrative, with Escayg explaining that Naughty Dog is "tying the culture and stories of the Hindu gods, even the story of the Hoysala Empire and the kings that ruled there," to Chloe's story."
I'm digging a more personal angle. That combined with the up close over the shoulder camera angle makes this one feel like it will be a dirtier experience. I've got to say though, Chloe and the fractured relationship with her father gives me pretty strong Tomb Raider vibes.
