13 Games like Uncharted Worth Playing in 2024

Games like Uncharted

Attention, adventurous souls! Are you in dire need of treasure-hunting escapades and heart-stopping action but have run out of all you could find in Uncharted? Well, fear not, for I’ve gathered a collection of thirteen games just like your favorite adventure-parkour-puzzle game that adds just enough of their own spice to keep things fresh. Without further delay, let’s start off with the first game:

1. The Last Of Us Part 1

The Last of Us

The Last of Us absolutely has to be number one on this list because it’s also made by, you guessed it, Naughty Dog! I don’t know what’s so naughty about the dog, but I can tell you with certainty that they (it?) have a knack for making some amazing games, this one being no exception.

Coming from Uncharted, you’ll love the overall similar feeling of the world and the way the game plays out, but I’m going to warn you right here that this is definitely its own game, not an Uncharted clone. In the Last of Us, you’re thrown into a world where there’s a fungi-based apocalypse that’s turned everyone into a zombie, and you’ve got a possible cure to it!

As you fight for your life to survive and get to your destination, you’ll find out all of the amazing secrets and the bits of detail this game has that make every bit as amazing as people tell you. To try it out, you can get the game on PlayStation and PC.

2. Shadow Of The Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, playing through this game is literally like playing through a movie! It looks that good, and it plays even better, with the gameplay revolving around you, Lara Croft, exploring temples, tombs, and dungeons to save the world from an apocalypse.

What I love about this game and think makes it an excellent alternative to Uncharted is that one, you’re a tomb raider much like our boy Nathan Drake, and two, you’re going to be doing a lot of parkour. I hope you’re not rusty because much of Nathan’s platforming transfers right over to Tomb Raider, along with its own mechanics, of course.

Overall, it feels like a pretty solid and similar feeling game to Uncharted, especially when you consider the setting and the narrative, which in itself is also quite like the one from our favorite game. So, to give it a shot, you’ll need a PlayStation, Xbox, or PC.

3. Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn

This game was a mixed bag for me. Having heard such great things about it from the folks over at PlayStation (I’m a PC gamer), I was really very excited to play the port to PC! Now, the disclaimer I have to give you is that the gameplay is every bit as amazing as the PlayStation version; it’s the same game, but the optimization leaves so much to be desired.

The poor performance certainly put a damper on my experience on a mid-ranged PC build, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy this game anyway! The gameplay is all about exploration, some parkour, and lots and lots of combat with robot-animal-thingies. I can’t quite put it into words, but I can assure you that the game definitely feels similar to Uncharted, though there’s something very unique about Horizon Zero Dawn, and that makes it its own thing.

So, for those of you that want something a little out of left field, this is the game for you. When you’re playing it, remember to befriend one of the herbivore robots so you can ride it around when you’re bored! Horizon Zero Dawn is playable on PlayStation and PC.

4. Assassin’s Creed Origins

Assassin’s Creed Origins

There are many Assassin’s Creed games that could make this list, but I personally think Origin is the best one for Uncharted fans because of its setting and story. If you guys haven’t seen that one gif where Bayek is wading through the desert and comes up at the top of a dune to see the sunrise (sunset?), you’ll have to trust me when I tell you it’s one of the best-looking games ever.

Graphics aside, though, the gameplay is perfect for Uncharted players, too! We all know at this point that Assassin’s Creed games are all about parkour, assassination, and diving into a haybale from a height of 500 feet to magically come out unharmed. Combine that with the medieval setting, and you’ve got the history aspect in it, too, which makes Origins so special.

If you haven’t tried out Origins yet, it’s definitely one of the best alternatives to Nathan’s adventures and is one of the best Assassin’s Creed games ever – available on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.

5. Control

Control

While you may be used to scaling treacherous cliffs and cracking witty jokes with Nathan Drake, with Control, it’s time to switch gears and dive headfirst into a kind of supernatural madness you’ve never seen before.

You get to play as Jesse Faden, a kind of superhero armed with a shape-shifting weapon and the power to chuck objects at your enemies with telekinesis (!). Seriously, that was all I needed to be sold on this game! Compared to Uncharted, though, instead of lush jungles, you’ll be exploring the mind-boggling Oldest House, a building that can’t decide what it wants to be when it grows up.

One minute you’re in a bland office space, and the next, bam! You’re in a trippy alternate dimension where gravity seems to have taken a vacation. Talk about a workplace that keeps you on your toes! As far as alternatives to Uncharted go, this one is definitely an apple that fell far from the tree. To try it out, you’ll need a PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch.

6. Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade

The Strange Brigade is definitely a quirky and peculiar game: You find yourself smack dab in the 1930s, battling mummies and other supernatural shenanigans with an impeccable sense of style and a side of British humor! Its uniqueness is what makes it such a lovable and fun game for me, but there’s definitely a lot more to it than just that. It’s like Uncharted but with a dash of absurdity and a pinch of Scooby-Doo-like mystery-solving (no Scooby snacks though, unfortunately).

In this co-op extravaganza (did I mention it’s a co-op?), you’ll team up with your fellow adventurers as part of the Strange Brigade, delving into ancient tombs, cracking riddles, and engaging in frenetic gunfights that would have even John Wick feel a bit concerned for your safety. The adventuring and puzzle solving (and the fighting, of course) are the reasons I find this game to be such a similar feeling one to Uncharted.

At the same time, though, while Uncharted globe-trots across the world, Strange Brigade takes you on an eccentric journey where camaraderie, slapstick humor, and an appetite for danger reign supreme. Different but definitely tons of fun in its own right! To try it for yourself, you can find the game on PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Switch.

7. The Evil Within

The Evil Within

According to the game’s dark and twisted narrative, it seems to suggest that everyone has a bit of evil lurking within their souls. Now I know who to blame for all the midnight snacks I’m always craving. This game delves into the depths of the human psyche, exposing the sinister shadows that dance within us all: A true psychological rollercoaster that makes you question your very existence!

It’s definitely an experience to be had, but why am I recommending it as an alternative to Uncharted? The Evil Within takes you on a chilling detour into the realm of survival horror, and that’s where it ignites the same sense of excitement that we all felt and loved in Uncharted! I’m talking edge-of-the-seat gameplay where there’s a ton of evasion and lots of puzzles to be solved along the way, too.

If, for some reason, you’re tired of all the sunny escapades from Uncharted, The Evil Within is always waiting to take you on a journey toward the darker sides of gaming, possibly changing your entire view of yourself. Fun! The game is playable on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.

8. The Order: 1886

The Order: 1886

Order 1886. Order 66. This game definitely had me concerned for a while, but I have good news! While it may share a similar name with the infamous Order 66 from Star Wars, fear not, for it’s a different kind of beast altogether. In The Order: 1886, the game presents an alternate history set in Victorian London, where an ancient order of knights battles against supernatural forces lurking in the shadows. It’s always the damn shadows hiding all the secrets and bad stuff!

Also, just like its adventurous counterpart in Uncharted, The Order: 1886 knows how to put on a show. It serves up an immersive story dripping with mystery, fancy gadgets, and jaw-dropping visuals that will make your monocle pop right off (I don’t know why you were wearing one but go with it).

This game is the perfect blend of historical accuracy and supernatural mayhem, making it a really good choice for Uncharted fans hungry for a different flavor of adventure. The Order: 1886 is playable only on PlayStation 4, though, so you’re either really lucky or looking at the next game now.

9. Resident Evil 4 Remake

Resident Evil 4 Remake

If you’ve played the original Resident Evil 4, this game needs no introduction. Except I absolutely have to rave about it; it’s so good! They really went ahead and made one of the best games of all time even better in a remake, and that has me all giddy.

Most of us are familiar with Resident Evil’s gameplay, it’s a ton of puzzle-solving while surviving a zombie apocalypse to save either yourself or someone with you. In this game, it’s the latter, and I’m afraid it’s the type where the dependent is definitely 100% dependent on you to get them through everything. Don’t get discouraged, though; the babysitting stays at a minimum while the game makes sure you’re more preoccupied with either running from or shooting at the zombies trying to eat you, dismember you, or even nail you to a cross and set fire to you.

Yup, it’s that kind of action. If you’re looking for a completely different game to Uncharted apart from the puzzle-solving part, you absolutely have to give this game a try – available on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox.

10. Batman: Arkham Knight

Batman: Arkham Knight

This game never got the attention and popularity it deserves. Having come out in 2015, it is still absolutely one of the best-looking games I’ve ever played and ever will play, and I haven’t even gotten to the gameplay!

As a long-time Batman fan, having played the earlier games too, Arkham Knight retains everything we all loved in the prequels and makes them so, so much better. You get your own Batmobile to drive around the city, you can use your hook and wingsuit to just glide around if you want, or you can launch yourself from the Batmobile to get to your destination. I could (and did) spend hours doing just that!

As an Uncharted enjoyer, you’ll definitely enjoy the parkour in this game, which, although it isn’t too similar, is definitely a lot of fun and an integral part of the gameplay. And the puzzles this game offers are unlike any other game; it even has a mini-series of side quests from the Riddler based entirely on unsolvable puzzles! If you’ve been on the fence for this game, I implore you to give it a shot – on PC, Xbox, or PlayStation.

11. Dying Light

Dying Light

Parkour. Zombies. That’s it; overview done, onto the next game. Okay, I’m kidding, but that’s basically what Dying Light is in a nutshell! It does parkour like nothing else, and though you may feel pretty fast and nifty while you’re doing it, it turns out the zombies have a monkey-see-monkey-do brain and have caught on to your antics!

This game is super-fast-paced, and the thrill of being on the run from the zombies is like nothing else I’ve ever experienced. Oh, and it’s co-op! It recently went free on Epic Games, too, so you and your buddies can get the full experience of being ripped apart by zombies together.

As an Uncharted fan, you’ll mostly be coming to this game for the parkour and platforming it has, with a hint of puzzles that are mandatory for a game like this. What’ll make you stay, though, is the co-op action of evading and fighting the zombies in a way no other game has ever done it. To play Dying Light, you’ll need a PC, Xbox, PlayStation, or Switch.

12. Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within

Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

Now this is a blast to the past, a PS2-era game! But what’s it doing on this list? Well, some people may want to fight me on this, but I wholeheartedly believe this is the best Prince of Persia game ever to come out, and that is a hill I’m willing to die on.

One of my favorite games from my childhood, Warrior Within, has one of the best combinations of parkour, exploration, and puzzle-solving of any game out there. You get to run along walls, dodge chasms, and elaborate traps designed to chop you to bits, all while (sometimes) being chased by the literal Guardian of Time: Dahaka. That thing instilled fear into my 9-year-old heart like nothing else as I watched my brother play this game.

Compared to Uncharted, you’ll love the parkour and the setting that takes you through a ton of temples and tombs as you follow the Prince’s journey. However, as you can probably tell, this will mostly be a unique experience, one that you’re not going to forget anytime soon. You can play Warrior Within on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.

13. Quantum Break

Quantum Break

Quantum Break is a game that takes quantum physics, throws it into a blender, and hits the puree button. While it may not actually shatter the fundamental laws of physics (phew!), it certainly bends them like a contortionist doing yoga in zero gravity. Picture a mind-bending adventure where time itself becomes a playground, and you, dear gamer, are the mischievous puppet master!

Now, for us loyal Uncharted aficionados, Quantum Break offers a distinct flavor of excitement that will appeal to your adventurous spirit. It’s like embarking on a journey where every step forward is also a step sideways through the fabric of time, truly as trippy as it sounds! You’ll navigate a narrative web of mystery and intrigue, unleashing time-altering powers that would make the Prince of Persia wish he could trade his dagger in for whatever it is you have.

All in all, this game features everything from heart-pounding action sequences to mind-boggling puzzles and a plot that will leave your head spinning faster than a particle in a particle accelerator. To try out Quantum Break, you can get it on Xbox and PC.

That’s all for today! With games that let you swing through ancient ruins, solve mind-bending puzzles, and uncover treasures in alternate dimensions, I’ve tried my best to get something for everyone in this list. With that said, feel free to let me know what you think and if there are any games I missed. Until next time, good luck and have fun!
