Sex & Nudity

  • Implied sex towards the beginning.
  • A few passionate kisses.

Violence & Gore

  • Played from a third-person perspective and set across various countries including Madagascar and Scotland, the player will explore various locales such as ancient ruins, jungles and streets to search for clues leading to the treasure.
  • Along the way, Drake must solve puzzles, overcome traps and battle guards and enemies preventing his progress.
  • Combat is fast-paced and the player can use weapons such as pistols, assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenades to fight enemies, or engage them in a brawl with punches and kicks.
  • Enemies can also be dispatched with stealth kills.
  • The overall violence is moderate but realistic, with occasional depictions of blood splatter and groans of pain when characters are shot or attacked, not to mention the violence is also enhanced due to the fact that this game possesses extraordinarily groundbreaking and realistic graphics with stunning lighting effects and very highly detailed visuals, which, despite looking astonishingly breathtaking and gorgeous, they make the violence look more "in your face".
  • Pieces of meat at butcher stalls will splatter blood that stain nearby surfaces if shot at.
  • Stealth kills depict enemies being thrown off cliffs and ledges or choked unconscious. We can hear disturbing dying noises from them when this happens, including bones cracking, realistic muffled painful groaning, gurgled grunting and sometimes even yellings of agony.
  • An intense melee fight sequence may depict a character being slashed in the neck or chest, or being impaled by a knife.
  • An intense sword fight resulting in a character getting crushed.
  • Main characters are constantly in peril.
  • All kinds of guns that result in sometimes bloody gunfights.
  • Multiplayer is strictly made for killing. Players use a wide variety of weapons to shoot each other. Sometimes mystical items are used to kill players and it is more fantasy based.
  • A main character is shot with some bloody results. He's then presumed dead, but it's revealed that he survives. This is quite emotional and intense.
  • A man is stabbed brutally in one scene. We then see his corpse lying in the ground, surrounded by a pool of blood.
  • In one level the player must shoot police officers and prison guards to escape a prison. It is later shown to be fake but still intense in the moment.
  • Overall, the game features a moderate level of violence. This refers to realistic but not excessively graphic violence, with the depiction of bloodletting, which may be included in gameplay.


  • Mild coarse language is infrequently used, such as "bitch", "crap" and "piss". More moderate terms are also used occasionally, such as "ass", "dick", "bastard", "prick", and "slut". Stronger coarse language like "shit", "bullshit", "goddamn", and "asshole" are fairly frequent.
  • Mild bad language such as the terms "a**hole" and "s**t" are voiced in the game's campaign.
  • Constant uses of shit and other milder language.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Characters can be seen smoking tobacco and drinking alcohol in moderation throughout.
  • These acts are not promoted or glamorized in any way or fashion in the game.
  • Smoking is actually put down though characters do it frequently.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Much darker than its predecessors.
  • If Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was a movie, it would be rated PG-13 for intense sequences of adventure action violence and language.
  • 'Uncharted 4: A Thief's End' is an action-adventure third-person shooter where the protagonist, Nathan Drake, as well as his companions go on a quest for lost treasure. Drake must fend off hostile enemies who are attempting to find the treasure first.
  • Frequent shootouts resulting in bodies that don't disappear.
  • Unlike the other three games there are no monsters, but there are some moments where it gets creepy. For example a pirate cut off people jaws and arms and hung the bones around a cave. Also there are creepy mummys that explode randomly.
  • Not as scary as other games but certainly as violent.
  • Suitable for 13+ Some blood spray, lots of language, drinking and smoking throughout, and violence throughout.
  • If this game was a film, the MPAA rating would be PG-13 for extended sequences of adventure violence and action throughout including bloody images, some thematic elements, brief alcohol use, language and smoking.
  • Blue: Age Advisory - Suitable for 16 and above, parental guidance strongly recommended, due to moderate portrayal of some content.
  • ESRB Rating: T for Blood, Language, Use of Alcohol, Use of Tobacco, Violence
