I should probably preface this entire review by saying I’m a really big fan of the Uncharted series on the Playstation console. I mean, I’m perfectly capable of saying when the series has faults (Uncharted 3, I’m looking at you). But still, a love is a love, and I have to profess it for this video-game series if we want full disclosure.
So when I saw they made a board game about this series, my first reaction was… well… honestly, pretty horrific. I’m a realist. A big video-game license, made into a board game? Yeah. I think I’ve heard that one before. That sounds like a quick cash-in if ever there was one, doesn’t it?
Well, then, what about Uncharted: Board Game? Does it even have a chance to be good? Or should this thing just be left in the Budget Bucket to rot?
Let’s find out!
