The new 'Uncharted' is the best $40 you can spend on gaming in 2017


The latest "Uncharted" game is a thrilling blockbuster set in an exotic place. It's full of explosions and adventure and long lost civilizations. Sound familiar? 


Indeed, "Uncharted: The Lost Legacy" sounds an awful lot like every previous "Uncharted" game. What that description doesn't tell you is how sharply executed and delightfully concise "The Lost Legacy" is. It's a short story set in the "Uncharted" universe.

"Uncharted: The Lost Legacy" is consistently gorgeous throughout. This is just the beginning.

It turns out that the short story format is a fantastic way to extend the otherwise concluded "Uncharted" series.
