With so many huge games getting pushed into 2008 – Grand Theft Auto IV , Too Human , Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots , etc. – it leaves a little maneuvering room for somewhat smaller, yet still very promising, titles. One of these games is Naughty Dog's PS3 exclusive, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune , and it now has an official release date.
Sony has confirmed to GameStop that this upcoming action/adventure will ship to retail stores across North America on November 20. This is great news, but unfortunately, it may be very poor timing…ironically enough, the Xbox 360's hugely anticipated RPG, Mass Effect , is supposed to ship on the exact same day. Well, at least we have a release date for Uncharted , and while it may have trouble standing up to the potential blockbuster caliber of Mass Effect , we always have faith in Naughty Dog.
If you like the premise – treasure hunter gets side-tracked while searching for the ultimate find, and is forced to fight to survive in exotic island location – then you should definitely check out Uncharted: Drake's Fortune . At the very least, it's coming just in time for the big holiday push.
