TO celebrate the upcoming release of Uncharted 4, Sony has decided to give the predecessors of the genre-defining series a reboot.

The good people at Bluepoint Games and Naughty Dog joined forces to rebuild one of the most revered game series’ of all time for the power of the PS4 system.

Released under the banner of UNCHARTED: The Nathan Drake Collection, the game includes the singleplayer campaigns for UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, and UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception.

If you are a loyal fan of the game series, the opportunity to replay a beautifully remastered version of Nathan Drake’s perilous journey across the globe is sure to excite.

Likewise, if you have never played the franchise and are looking for some context before the latest release, the game is perfect.

The re-release is a common trend with video game developers with The Last of Usand God of War receiving the special treatment in recent times.

And while playing through the Uncharted games again, we got thinking about some other games that need to come back.

MediEvil

What’s not to love about a reincarnated skeleton knight battling an evil sorcerer and his battalions of undead monsters?

When Sir Dan wasn’t using his arsenal of medieval weapons for combat, he would be trying to solve the unique puzzles offered throughout the game.

While seeming terrifying in concept, the game was far from scary with its bright and colourful graphics making it suitable for all ages.

Syphon Filter

It was the game that almost never saw the light of day, but thankfully it did.

Syphon Filter was a third-person shooter that combined stealth, action and puzzle solving.

When it was released in 1999, the game was met with positive praise from critics for its complex storyline, which centred on US special agents sent to Nepal to apprehend an international terrorist.

The game boasted to offer a new “super-spy” genre that offered gameplay consisting of violence and stealth, and it didn’t dissapoint.

Dino Crisis

The same team behind Capcom’s Resident Evil games helped create a new breed of survival horror with this little gem.

When a female special operations agent is sent to investigate a mysterious island facility, she discovers it has become overrun with vicious dinosaurs.

Much more action-oriented than the Resident Evil franchise, Dino Crisis offers hours of suspenseful play with gamers sitting on the edge of their seat as they attempt to escape a Velociraptor-filled facility with their lives.

Driver

Set in Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York, this game mimics the feel of 1960s and 1970 car chase films.

The game follows the story of an undercover NYPD detective aiming to infiltrate organised crime organisations by impressing them with his skills behind the wheel.

Through a series of driving missions, the player completes the story mode, while also unlocked the ability to drive freely around each of the cities.
