This year’s holiday release season is shaping up to be one of the best in the while. Gamers the world over are looking forward to releases such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Batman: Arkham City, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations to name a few. But Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has been the object of particular attention due largely to the promotional campaign that Naughty Dog is running with Subway restaurants.
The hype doesn’t end there either as special showings of Uncharted 3 will take place at select AMC theaters across the United States, even going so far as to offer copies of the game before the actual release date as an incentive to attend.
Players the world over are eager to learn whether their money will be well spent with respect to Nathan Drake’s next adventure, and it seems that the embargo for print reviews of the game has finally lapsed and a Spanish magazine has printed the first review of the game.
As reported by Gaming Everything, Spanish magazine Playmania has scored Uncharted 3 with a 9.9/10, the highest score that the magazine has ever given a game. For the sake of comparison, the publication gave its predecessor, Uncharted 2, a score of 9.5/10. Read Game Rant’s Uncharted 2 review for our thoughts.
At this time there hasn’t been an English translation of the review made public, and a Spanish transcript of the review has not been posted yet. However, early viewings of the review indicate that it does spoil the ending of the game. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for it should it emerge anytime soon, but since the print embargo is up we expect that several more magazines will begin writing up their reviews for the game soon enough. In the meantime though, someone has scanned all of the images from the review and we have put them into the gallery below. We apologize for the image quality, but those are the scans that were posted. Also there are some SPOILERS associated with the single player campaign in the images so don’t say we didn’t warn you!
The post also goes on to state that the review embargo for online publications is set for October 24th. So if anyone out there is on the fence about picking up Uncharted 3 know that your favorite websites *cough* Game Rant *cough* will have reviews up around that time (provided they were lucky enough to be sent an advanced copy…).
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will be released November 1st for the PS3.
