First in-game screenshots and details for The Farm 51's, Adventurer
So it has snowy mountains, pirateships and temple ruins in addition to the jungle enviroment and samey characters. Not bad at all.
Graphics looks not even close to Uncharted. Uncharted Lightning is still the King!
Even though I love the Uncharted Franchise, I don't really get the kind of stupidity behind calling anything that is a Treasure hunter game an 'Uncharted Wannabe' when Uncharted itself was 'inspired' by Tomb Raider, that and this game is an FPS not an Action adventure which is Third person.... How is this being called a WANNABE when it's an entirely different Genre and it's just simply Treasure-hunter related? By all means if Nolan North voiced someone then it'd be too similar from that alone, but... Fanboys getting up in any arms and calling this game a Wannabe or Copy is just plain stupid....
Uncharted wasn't inspired by Tomb Raider. Both were inspired by the same 'pulp adventure genre' foundations, which have existed for decades. In the form of books, comics and movies. Gameplay is very different. Tomb Raider was much more of a platformer and Uncharted is more of an action/shooter (with platforming). Well, at least until Crystal Dynamics decided to take a more Uncharted-ish approach with the reboot. Now, regardless of this game's FPS approach, look at the visual design. Some of these screens look a bit like Shambhala from UC2. So sure, there are some similarities. But that doesn't mean that it's a clone or wannabe or rip off.
the author is obviously a fanboy as well. there have been plenty of games in this setting since pitfall... especially in the isometric style of game. then there are movies over the last 100 years.
No one above said anything of what you claimed. Typical hater. You're quick to point the finger at Sony for "copying"(based on your commnet history you bashed Battle Royale, LBPK and Move) but also quick to defend other games, just like you're doing now. Are you sure you're not the one with the double standards. And this game has gotten no where near the same amount of criticism that Uncharted did about it being a "Tomb Raider" rip off.
uncharted is still the best console looking game untill the last of us,beyond 2 souls are out
@patriot This game borrows heavily from Uncharted and battle Royale borrows heavily from SSB. OK? Can you please shut up about this already? There can be no defence for Battle royale since even the devs say it borrows heavily from SSB. Noone should be dumb enough to try and say they are not related somehow. If they do just point and laugh. Same as this game. I've seen many many fanboys say this game is nothing like Uncharted so you going on about SDF is kinda dumb. Just point and laugh I tell you.
looks like Call of Duty and Uncharted had sex in The Farm 51 weird shit can happen in area 51
I don't get how this is a wannabe. It's like saying Assassin's Creed 3 is an American Conquest wannabe just because the settings are similar.
But AC3 looks nothing in design like American Conquest. Diff.
I think that as long as you don't compare everything in this game to uncharted then it may actually be a pretty good game. But since they are so similar, it's going to be impossible to ignore the comparisons. That may be the downfall of the game from the get go
Correct me if I'm wrong, but in one of the screenshots it seems as if this is an FPS. Without the third person traversal, cover/shooting, and stealth mechanics, I don't see how this can be like Uncharted, apart from the setting (which if anything is an Indiana Jones setting :P) I get it, though I wouldn't call it an Uncharted wannabe if it's an FPS.
yeap, it's an Uncharted FPS take
Isn't it obvious? The title is designed to bait you into clicking on this and then his site. I only clicked here to point this out.
If it has aliens it's a halo clone, if it has jungle settings it's an uncharted clone, etc etc.
If it has characters from that system into a beat-em-up game, it's a Smash Bros clone...
Haha Yup. So true. I wish people would judge PS All Stars by its own merits and not complain that it reminds them of Smash Bros. Smash Bros. is fun no doubt, but it's gonna be cool to see how Sony's version plays. On Topic, this game might LOOK like Uncharted but I have my doubts about it being anywhere near as GOOD as Uncharted in story or gameplay.
I like how people praise Uncharted as the king but when someone takes inspiration from it at all they bash that game... Wouldn't you want them to take inspiration? If you loved that game wouldn't you want to play something that can be just as fun but with a new twist? Im interested in this game.
who's bashing ? I'll admit this has some potential.
You know its passive aggressive ...
lol Naughty Dog: "Gritty Xbox Shooters Shaped Uncharted" http://www.nowgamer.com/new...
is uncharted a tomb raider wannabe....................... ....no, just because it has a similar setting doesn't make it a wannabe.
The Uncharted-Tomb Raider thing was always a weak defense. Aside from temples, these games have nothing in common. You might as well say Uncharted is like The Legend of Zelda. Makes as much sense.
..... Lets see what they have in common. Athletic main character Platforming Third person camera Very similar settings ... you want me to continue into things you may not have noticed? It was never a weak defence and Uncharted is a tomb raider wannabe but its a good game and i dont care and neither does anyone else. Ever since Uncharted 2 released everything is a wannabe if it even looks similar (although there was one clear rip off a while back)... In fact i'll take this one step further! Im not buying Battle Royale because its a wannabe SSMB...
Pekolie How many games have unathletic, out-of-shape characters? There are literally too many 3rd-person games to count, which all probably have platforming to an extent. You just described adventure games in general with the first 3 things.
It's funny how the new Uncharchick game is basically, verbatim, ripping off Uncharted's style, but people still think a few similarities made Uncharted a Tomb Raider rip off...
Ironically, the latest Tomb Raider game is more of an Uncharted clone than a 'Tomb Raider' game. Now that's funny
Faceplam for the disagree's on this comment.
So this is what happens if Uncharted was a FPS.
Necrovision is pretty damned awesome, can't wait to see what Farm51 come up with.
It's another FPS so I'll avoid it.
The shooting mechaics in uncharted 3 were really bad. Very very poor aiming and clunky slow controls and a little to much empasized on such a poor developed mechanic. I sure hope they learned their lesson or the last of us will be just a pretty game with horrible gameplay. Btw. It sure seems like all sony releases anymore are thirdperson games?
You need to replay it with the patch that added in Uncharted 2's aiming model if you want to try something that's smoother and a bit faster. With it, I died less than half the times on Crushing than I did on Normal with the original model.
