Story & Themes
Like Lara Croft and James Bond before him, Nathan Drake is an adventurer and an action hero. He is a descendant of explorer Francis Drake, and he has a talent for getting into trouble on the hunt for ancient treasures.
in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Drake is searching for the lost city of Ubar, which was referenced in Francis Drake's diary. Drake works with all his old allies from previous games, as well as a couple of new ones. When they find the city, deep in the Arabian desert, they discover that the city was abandoned when King Solomon captured a djinn in a brass vessel and threw the vessel in a well. The djinn tainted Ubar's water supply, and people who drink from the city's water are now affected by powerful hallucinogens. The city is destroyed in the ensuing fight, and Nate flies off into the sunset with Elena and Sullivan.
The games are very much in the spirit of Indiana Jones and other action movies, focusing around magnificent set pieces and out-there ancient artifacts. It uses lots of historical characters
