Uncharted rip-off called ‘Adventurer’ which is in 1st person perspective looks stunning

"A new game called 'Adventurer' made by a polish studio called The farm51 looks pretty amazing, but the catch here is that it looks a wee bit similar to Uncharted."

I thought "tomb raider" had a chick for the lead.

irepbtown1959d ago

Am I the only one that thinks the start of the video (the environment) looks a lot like Uncharted Drakes Fortune?

BitbyDeath1959d ago

@Morrian-Aensland,

Tomb Raider does have a chick for a lead.
Are you high?

Mr Logic1959d ago

I think that is just his way of ripping on Uncharted by insisting it's simply Tomb Raider.

Grap1959d ago

so now anything have a jungle. is a rip-off?

badz1491959d ago

Crysis has jungle, the upcoming Far Cry 3 has jungle, BFBC2 has jungle and there are many more games with jungle but do any of them said to be Uncharted rip-off? NO!

this is not about the jungle but just like Unearthed, this is a blatant shameless rip-off!

Drithe1959d ago

Uncharted = Indiana Jones wannabe.

hulk_bash19871959d ago

@Drithe

I would say it was inspired by Indiana Jones and not a direct rip off/wannabe. I challenge you to find a good Indiana Jones game worth playing, that matches the quality of any of the Uncharted games.

Kurt Russell1959d ago

The Indiana Jones game on the old xbox was an awesome game hulk_bash1987. It doesn't share the same graphics what with it being made a generation before, but at the time it looked great and had some amazin brawling physics.

Regardless I think Drithe was referring to the movies of which indiana was a little more famous for ;)

I'm guessing Body still behaves like he's your boss when you call him? :D I never understood how he'd know you're calling him when he didn't even have ears. Haha, I wish you the best of luck then! :D

guitarded771959d ago

Aww... poop... I want to see BBD in concert!!! That would be dope.

On Topic: The game looks kinda cool even if it is an Uncharted rip off.

mewhy321959d ago

I don't see this as a rip off of uncharted what so ever. Both this game and UC borrow heavily from Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider. To say that it's a ripoff of UC isn't accurate. I look forward to this game. It should be a great Adventure. LOL

Army_of_Darkness1959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

It clearly is an uncharted rip off. you see the characters and environment and your telling us that its not trying to specifically be like uncharted?! seriously?! I'm sure if this game wanted to "copy" Indiana jones and tomb raider, wouldn't you think they would have released this game at least before, say uncharted 2 came out??

Biggest1959d ago

Had anyone watched that video without the headline they would have immediately said "That was fast. Didn't know they were making an Uncharted FPS!"

Show me one pre-Uncharted Indiana Jones or Tomb Raider game that looks like that. Just one! I dare you.

h311rais3r1959d ago

@ ARMY

I seriously was not aware Naughty Dog invented the jungle!! I really must study history more.......

It looks more like an Indiana jones game than uncharted.

Ravens201959d ago

^^^ Well it's obvious that this guy is in denial

extermin8or1959d ago

that scene, looks identical to a scene in drakes fortune when you just find the U-boat in the middle of the amazon....

Machioto1959d ago

@blastoise Sony had ar on the ps2 via eye toy, I think Sony may have purchase their tech because this looks like eye of judgement or invisimal for the psp.

slaton241959d ago

it looks like a rip off because the guy who looks like nathan drake is similarly dressed the same and the other guy looks like sully and that pic looks like its at the jungle scean with the german u boat....people who say this isnt a ripoff are most likely 360 users seeing how they dont have uncharted for 360 and they are saying its like an uncharted FPS.....hmmm

specialguest1959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

Uncharted was heavily inspired by Indiana Jones from treasure hunting, environment, to solving puzzles. Even Nathan Drake is somewhat of a poorman's Indian Jones played by Harrison Ford in terms of attitude/character.

People call it a rip-off because of:
1. The environment
2. Treasure hunting/puzzle solving
3. The main male character

All of 3 of these reasons Uncharted did NOT originally invent. The game is not even a 3rd person game. In addition, the main character dresses in classic turn of the century explorer attire. Just like the main hero from the 1999 movie The Mummy: http://blogs.amctv.com/movi...

andibandit1959d ago

@h311rais3r

"seriously was not aware Naughty Dog invented the jungle!!"

Such is the power of Playstation.

Gamer19821959d ago

They did rip a lot of uncharted however saying that it looks like a very poor game even at early stages. Just look at the puzzles they are so 1990's and the flying spears traps? Seriously? Last time I saw them was timesplitters! Not to mention the weapons which belong more in a war game like dual wielding smgs.

lonesoul651959d ago

I agree with ya mewhy, people just love to categorize everything based on their own short term memories. Sure games like Uncharted might rekindle the popularity of games with "hero adventure" treasure hunters but that has always been around in film and games. If people would stop comparing everything against everything else and taking experiences as they come...they would be a lot less disappointed in life. It should be a great adventure.

At least it looks better than that "Unearthed" game.

Organization XII1959d ago

How dare you say anything has better graphics than Uncharted? That's blasphemy.

First of all how can you say that from a few non HD videos we have seen so far? thats just fanboysim at its best..

trust xbox to take uncharted and turn it into an fps.

Nimblest-Assassin1959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

Seriously, people wouldn't be freaking out if UNCHARTED RIPOFF wasnt in the title.

After watching the gameplay, the only similarities with uncharted are an airplane crash, puzzle solving,and 2 male characters.... That's it

No set piece moments, no climbing..... It's an fps to, not even third person

The game actually reminds me more of farcry.... I'm actually kind of interested in it

Guys, games get inspired by other media,and other games as well.... It's how this industry grows and progresses....

Find one original game, today

I love uncharted, but I can't say it's an original concept.... But it's still a concept I love, loved Indiana jones, and I plan to pick up tomb raider... And I might get this too

insomnium21959d ago

Valkyria Cronicles is pretty original.

It's ok you people. This game only happens to have similar characters and locations than Uncharted has. It's not trying to rip anything off. It a complete coincidense.

xAlmostPro1959d ago

The issue is the character blatantly look like Nathan etc.

A lot of the scenery showed also seems similar tp specific parts of Uncharted. Rather than both games having a jungle, these guys have constructed the same thing in the same way.

greenpowerz1959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

The language in this article is damage control setting the tone for Sony fans to attack a unforeseen game on xbox and not PS lol. Since when does being in a jungle mean it's a uncharted ripp off? Looks more like Indiana Jones but darker with a heavier focus on the supernatural(more like the Mummy movies but dark) Uncharted is Tomb Raider with Gears Of War gameplay mechanics. The Oringal Xbox had more games like this. Other than some plants, 007 Golden Eye has more in common with this game than Uncharted. A crashed Air Plane in the Jungle concept came about because Uncharted? LOL

AusRogo1959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

*sigh* no one is saying its a rip off because of the jungle! There's more to it, like someone said above that the picture looks exactly like the scene when they find the U-boat.

That's why people are calling it a rip off. And why label them as Sony fans? Maybe they actually do think its a rip off regardless of platform.

xAlmostPro1959d ago

In PC terms it doesn't look that good at all, in comparison with a lot of games.

The thing that will set them apart is the story for the Uncharted series, i'm not convinced these guys will match it with a far smaller studio.

Wow, that's a serious rip-off...

ChunkyLover531960d ago

I've seen much more blatant ripoffs, and recently as well.

Prince_Dim-Lu1960d ago

Ya funny how this is a rip off... Super Smash Bros....errrrr I mean the Sony Smash Bros isn't.

I see what you did there Chunky Lover. ;)

tehnoob31960d ago

PS All Stars Battle Royale (PSASBR) is not as much of a rip off as it seems to be.

SSBB is the only game in its genre, and Sony is making another game in the same genre. Calling PSASBR a rip off of SSBB is the same as calling every FPS a rip-off of Wolfenstien 3D.

darthv721960d ago

The comparison of all FPS to Wolf3d doenst quite fit. Had you specified particular games then it would make more sense. Like the game NOVA as being a ripoff of halo. That is a more direct comparison than a generalized statement of (insert FPS) compared to Wolf3d.

The PS allstars is sony's version of SSB so in that sense it could be construed as a rip off. Just as this game "adventurer" being more closely akin to uncharted.

It isnt a new thing to try and capitalize on the popularity of something and make a similar title. Pretty much there are several gameloft titles that are obvious clones of bigger named games.

Same thing happens in movies and tv. They arent trying to undermine the quality and popularity of the originals. They are simply trying to get in on the action and get a slice of that particular genre in the market.

Besides, there are some really good knockoff titles out there. They dont get as much attention because people see them as knockoffs and may not be inclined to give them a chance.

Blastoise1959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

@Prince_Dim-Lu
When did anybody ever say that Sony All stars battle royal wasnt a rip off of Smash bro's?
Even the devs admitted it borrows heavily.

Its a rip off, we're past that now, get over it.

Krimmson1959d ago

@tehnoob3
Look up TMNT: Smash Up, Battle Stadium DON, DreamMix TV World Fighters, Jump Ultimate Stars, Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion and Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble. Super Smash Bros. isn't the only game in the 2.5D Party Fighter genre.

Outside_ofthe_Box1959d ago

lol and now we have people that were so quick to call anything Sony makes a rip-off now holding their tongue on a game that looks very similar to a PS game... gee I wonder why.

Jazz41081959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

Game looks decent but I'm glad naughty dog is resting uncharted as I don't think another one real soon will go over as well as it will start to get redundant and old. This is true with any game and I'm looking at you as well gears.

insomnium21959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

What? A sane comment from you jazz? Are you drunk? LOL!

Battle royale is a ripoff of SSB. I don't see how anyone can say it isn't since even the devs say it borrows heavily from it.

This Adventurer game borrows heavily from Uncharted in characters and enviroments (not just jungle). Get over it.

@sourav93 below

MS changed that in 2005-2008 by acting like a child. They got the entire USA and media behind them acting childish too. It's been a crazy gen.

xAlmostPro1959d ago

@Prince_Dim-Lu

That statement works both ways, Why can people call Allstars a rip off but fans of Uncharted are taking crap for saying this is a rip off?..

This is closer to Uncharted than that other saudi Uncharted clone and that game took way more crap for it than this one..

I wonder if it's because it's being released for 360..

vega2751959d ago (Edited 1959d ago )

for the love of god how was MS acting like a child and got the media behind them...huh. please explain to us. you keep making shit up to fit your propaganda that MS has this so called power over everything in america because everything don't go sony's way. the only child here is you. grow up and stop the BS conspiracy theroy. oh and I'm still waiting for you to provide a link where MS said anything about installs on the ps3 with GTA4.

ontop: other than the charators. theres really nothing that makes this a uncharted clone. unless you talking about the jungle. which is mainly in many games other than uncharted. i honestly think people are still upset that PSASB is being called a SSBM clone that they need something to rag on.

sourav931959d ago

Though it's eerily similar, if this games looks and feels anything like uncharted, I would have to give props to the devs. In my opinion all gamers should have the Oncharted experience, be it through Uncharted games themselves, or by similar games like this one. Where have the days gone where people were just excited about new and awesome games, and not arguing over which platform has the better games. Gaming should be about one thing, and one thing only; fun. Peace.

_Aarix_1959d ago

So basically generic repetitive clunky gunplay (and lots of it) followed by a decent story and good cinematics followed by crappy annoying puzzles climbing....I played all 3 and it wasn't fun, ratchet and clank was fun, sly cooper was fun....uncharted honestly sucked.

Blastoise1959d ago

@_Aarix_

Uncharted doesn't suck. And I wouldn't say its repetitive or clunky either. I admit some of the puzzles could be better, but they're not annoying. They aren't perfect games. But it is a great series hence all the 9/10's and 10/10's it gets.

sourav931959d ago

@_Aarix_ I don't think you've even played the Uncharted games. And if you have, you were ready to hate them before you even put the disc inside. I know it's your opinion, but next time make that clear. If you didn't find it fun, that's cool. But passing any judgement on any game as a fact, that's not the right. The series doesn't have an average Metacritic rating of 90+ for nothing.

Brownghost1959d ago

games rip off from each other

LightofDarkness1960d ago

In first person, because I doubt a small studio could achieve the kind of animation fluidity and dynamism that characterizes Nathan Drake in Uncharted. And if they could, the real difficulty lies in striking a balance between animation and player control/responsiveness. Nice try though.
