In the run up to Uncharted 3, I've decided to play through the first 2 games in the series again. I've started pretty late, so we'll see if I can actually finish both the games in under 2 days. I've never been a huge fan of the original game and my most recent playthrough just seems have accentuated its flaws. Waves of enemies make the combat more tiresome than fun at times, a situation compacted by the cover system, which feels clunky and primitive by today's standards. Furthermore, the platforming, while good for the most part, is sometimes annoying when it is not obvious where you need to jump to or when Drake decides to jump in the wrong direction, leading to unnecessary deaths. I'm not going to say that I don't like Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, but it's sometimes difficult to when the sequel trumps it in just about every conceivable way.

Gawd, I hate Uncharted 1... Still got that platinum anyways though... Uncharted 2 however won my little heart. :D
Hmm... I just bought the combo pack with 1 & 2... not sure I want to play through 1 if it's not a 'must play'. I have too many games and not enough time. Mostly just not enough time...
1 is terrible, about the only thing you really need to know is who Elena Fischer is and that's about it.
@Roxas-UrBoxas I can't agree with that, although 2 is superior in every single way. I would say to play through 1 on easy to get the story, which is the highlight of the game, before moving on to 2.
I suppose I'm a bit harsh... I really dislike the first game, but the last two-three chapters kind of make it worth it with the twist they have near the end.

Still, all those gimicky mechanics using all the playstation 3's controller features such as climbing across tree stumps and throwing grenades with six axis combined with boring gameplay (such as an entire chapter of climbing the side of a wall) and fighting the exact same group of enemies (as in "I've seen that same black guy and that same white guy 50 times in this game now") for 17 chapters was kind of upsetting to me.
