The Gripping Sound of Drake’s Hands
As an adventurer, Drake often finds himself leaping from platform to platform, hanging onto ledges, and swinging on poles. While this isn’t something entirely new to the series, Uncharted 4 includes a careful touch of detail to the well-aged mechanic. Next time you jump onto a flag pole, for example, listen carefully. You’ll hear that noise of skin gripping and slowly slipping past the pole just like you would in real-life.
It’s a tiny detail; you could play through the game and never even realize it was there. Regardless of how often it gets noted, though, Naughty Dog’s effort is impressive. We dare not think about the state of Drake’s hands, though.
