Just to clarify, I'm NOT accusing Uncharted of copying other games. I love Uncharted and the third one is one of the best games I've ever played. Anyways, I'm sure somebody else already picked up on this, but there seems to be quite a few references to other games that appear in Drake's Deception.
The most obvious one for me was the whole "Iram of the Pillars" City. I haven't played many Prince of Persia games, but this city looks like it was taken straight out of The Forgotten Sands. As well, there's the whole thing about the Djinn and King Solomon, which play a large part in the story of The Forgotten Sands.
I'm not sure what to call them, but the flaming head guys in Ubar remind me a lot of Nix from inFamous 2, especially the way there transport. (3:36 in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRhV92fYzkU)
This is all I can think of at the moment, but if anybody has some other game or movie references feel free to post them in the comments. This is my first blog post, so thank you for reading it.
