All three are well worth the play through. Uncharted is by far my favorite series and the ONLY reason why I bought a Vita at launch. Uncharted Golden Abyss is awesome and arguably better looking than the first one on the PS3. Hell, I even borrowed a friends PS3 just to play the third one (don't own a PS3 and bought the game full price). Game play is the same...very well done considering Naughty Dog didn't make it...could have fooled me!
I played through them over again starting with 1 a few days before 3 came out. While 2 fine tuned the graphic engine, the overall graphics were not that much better. If anything the difference is like COD4 and MW2, where it really is just the same engine fine tuned a little with better artwork. Graphic differences between 2 and 3 were vary little. Even with Last of Us you could tell they just beefed up the engine a little and added even better artwork.
Game Play mechanics were the biggest improvement going from 1 to 2 IMO. Though considering I bought the PS3 mainly for getting God of War when it released and got the treat of playing uncharted was pretty nice. Last of Us is also a must play.
OP you must play them in order, IMO the first one has the best story line. Just the game mechanics weren't as fine tuned. And repetitive shooting, but all the uncharted games are like that. But Graphic wise it looks great, not like your going back into the ps2 era of Horrible graphics.
