Test of “Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection”: a facelift at the height of the legend?

One of the masterpieces of the PS4 will be entitled this Friday, January 28 to a facelift on PS5. What fun to dive back into the adventures of Nathan Drake and Co.?

After God of War, Ghost of Tsushima or Days Gone, Sony is continuing its policy of adapting its PS4 hits to its new console, the PS5. On the menu of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, we therefore find the last two episodes (Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy), embellished with technical improvements for use to take advantage of the capacities of the PS5.

A healthy graphic overhaul?

We will not go back too long on the scenarios of these two games, widely known to all. On the menu of Uncharted 4, a lot of shootouts, exploration and climbing, with the watermark of an ambiguous relationship between the two brothers, beautifully staged. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, meanwhile, features a female duo, Chloe and Nadine, battling grave robbers in India. So what is this PS5 version worth?

Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy were games ahead of their time when they were released (in 2016 and 2017 respectively), so the “tech leap” to PS5 isn’t obvious. Admittedly, the graphics seem sharper and the fluidity is in order with 60fps and even 120fps modes (if you have a compatible screen), but overall these two titles are as splendid as they were. time, hardly more.


As a result, we have to rely on the implementation of haptic feedback and support for the Force Feedback triggers of the DualSense controller to find a few new features. But, here too, the difference is not obvious. Admittedly, you can definitely feel a “resistance” in the L2 and R2 triggers when shooting or driving a car, but nothing quite as striking as in other PS5 games, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart in mind. From a studio as perfectionist as Naughty Dog, we expected more attention to detail.

With such slight improvements, the interest of this PS5 version is therefore relative. And yet, we are again caught up in these two spectacular, splendid and even moving adventures. That’s the magic of great games in general and these Uncharted in particular…

Uncharted : Legacy of Thieves Collection, Sony, sur PS5.
