Right, so I recently played through the Uncharted trilogy for the first time, after hearing nothing but praise for them, and... meh.

I didn't find the story particularly interesting, it had one likable character (Sully), the shooting became downright fucking tedious near the end in all games and I don't get impressed by 'Hollywood-like' setpieces at all. I dunno, maybe I'm missing something but I didn't really get anything out of one of the 'greatest franchises ever' at all.

So that being said, I've heard VERY good things about the fourth game, but given how much of an overwhelming MEH the others gave me, is it worth even playing? Does it make an effort to make the shooting less tedious, or have a plot that isn't just 'find the mystical magoo of Walmart' or something? If it's THAT good I'd give it a shot, but I dunno.

U4 is better than 2 and 3, but if you didn't like the others you won't like 4.

Glad you feel that way about them. I personally find them to be the most overrated video games of all time, and a symbol of ND's decline as a developer and the quintessential example of why this medium is falling apart.

The main selling point I always see is 'it's like a Hollywood blockbuster with amazing setpieces and action'

Which is fine but it doesn't sell me on the game at all. I don't really get impressed by these giant action packed set pieces like climbing through a falling train or plane at all. Maybe it's just not my cup of tea, I mean I don't even enjoy the Indiana Jones films much either. If the characters were interesting or the story was good I'd like it more but... eh.

Is this seriously supposed to be Playstation's flagship title?

Goodness gracious, great balls of lightning!
Uncharted 4 is a good game, but there are a lot of parts where the game just drags on for too long and you'll get bored. Those parts are the segments where you are put into a large area and have to explore it to advance. I found these to be too unnecessary long and tedious when a game like this is supposed to be in-your-face and constantly have you moving.

The cutscenes however are fantastic and big budget Hollywood movie quality. All of the characters have their own cool moments throughout the game. It really feels like you're watching a movie because of how well they are shot.

Overall I wouldn't say that this is the best Uncharted because I still think 2 is the best one.

Would any of that sway somebody who is not at all impressed by the big Hollywood actiony setpieces from the other games?
