(Re)Discover the Lost Legacy
In Uncharted Lost Legacy, you take on the role of Chloe Frazer, an expert thief and treasure hunter who must work alongside Nadine Ross to uncover the secrets of a long-lost ancient civilization. Lost Legacy is an engaging and challenging adventure that will keep you enthralled from start to finish. The writing for both characters is excellent, and the gameplay is varied enough to keep you on your toes.
