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....
MaxXAttaxX  +   914d ago
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.
MaxXAttaxX  +   914d ago
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
insomnium2  +   914d ago

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.

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.
ShinMaster  +   913d ago
But AC3 looks nothing in design like American Conquest. Diff.
KidBroSweets2  +   912d ago
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
kamruk  +   915d ago
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.
PiccoloGR  +   915d ago
yeap, it's an Uncharted FPS take
Afterlife  +   915d ago
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.
MiamiACR21  +   915d ago
If it has aliens it's a halo clone, if it has jungle settings it's an uncharted clone, etc etc.
JKelloggs  +   915d ago
If it has characters from that system into a beat-em-up game, it's a Smash Bros clone...
blumatt  +   914d ago

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.
IaMs12  +   915d ago
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.

is uncharted a tomb raider wannabe....................... ....no, just because it has a similar setting doesn't make it a wannabe.
MidnytRain  +   915d ago
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.
TekoIie  +   915d ago
..... Lets see what they have in common.

Athletic main character
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...

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.
PirateThom  +   915d ago
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...
john2  +   915d ago
Ironically, the latest Tomb Raider game is more of an Uncharted clone than a 'Tomb Raider' game. Now that's funny

Jazz4108  +   914d ago
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.
lonesoul65  +   915d ago
they have guns...its a call of duty wannabe...heh...funny that we have to group everything based on current popular culture.
Human Analog  +   914d ago
Yeah... And if it has cars and racetracks it was copying the Gran Turismo franchise... There is tons of room for quality games, and even ones not so good. We as a group should be praising, and not fingerpointing. The more choices we have, the better.
Human Analog  +   914d ago
What kind of basement dwelling a-hole disagreed? So you are basically saying that it is good that we are saturated with C.O.D. clones, Halo map packs? You are one of the reasons the industry, and gamers as a whole are not taken seriously.
lonesoul65  +   914d ago
LOL no doubt...i wonder if people even think before they do that? I admit I will off topic comment at times, but you hit the nail on head sir.
Eiffel  +   915d ago
Pretty sure the whole "explorer" theme existed before Uncharted.
coolbeans  +   915d ago
Interesting note: We're actually nearing the 120th anniversary of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island."

I seriously don't understand this fixation of calling an adventure FPS an "Uncharted rip-off" or an "Uncharted wannabe." There's no patience to discover what possible new ideas the game may contain.
Pintheshadows  +   915d ago
No one explored before Uncharted. Ever. Just like no fought wars before CoD or raced cars before Gran Turismo.
xursz  +   915d ago
And no platform brawlers existed before SSB.
Pintheshadows  +   915d ago
I feel the need to point out that i'm being entirely serious. Before Dino Crisis, dinosaurs didn't exist, then they existed in the past due to a temporal anomaly and eventually went extinct as they developed chronic arthritis from playing Street Fighter 2 and couldn't use cutlery so they starved.

And that is a FACT.
kimball232  +   915d ago
I dont see how this is an uncharted wannabe? Most action/adventure games that wanna stay true to the old style roots of action/adventure have to be based in area's like this game, uncharted, and many others are based in, if anything uncharted is an indiana jones rip-off.

New game = Clone of popular game in the media

- New FPS = Cod Clone
- New MMORPG = WoW clone
- New Thrid Person Adventure game = Gears Clone unless adventuring is involved then Uncharted Clone
- Open World Sandbox = GTA clone
- Arena Shooter = Quake Clone

etc etc etc

Can't we just judge games based on their own merits lol

Dlacy13g  +   915d ago
Well said! And this is hardly an "Uncharted Clone". Last time I checked Uncharted was set in modern times and was a 3rd person shooter. This is much more Indiana Jones...
Biggest  +   915d ago
This is where insanity takes over. Uncharted was equated to a Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones clone though the only real similarities where the adventuring theme and treasure finding. This game uses those as well as the partner-in-adventure dynamic without even trying to make the characters not seem like close relatives to Drake and Sully. If it was only about the scenery I'd be right there with you guys. But be real for a second. Of the three major aspects of the game that we know of (FPS, theme, characters) there are direct links between two of them. It's pretty damned similar to Uncharted. Also. . . How is that a bad thing? Uncharted is one of the best series ever made. If this thing is executed well it's going to be an incredible game.
Dlacy13g  +   915d ago
@Biggest I can agree with what you are saying. Certainly there are similarities between all the games you mentioned. That all said, I think the reason I take an exception to the term "Uncharted Clone" as it puts a negative tag to a game we have yet to play. If they had said "Uncharted like game" or "Uncharted inspired game" I would be fine with it but tossing out "Uncharted Clone" insinuates inferior game and we really know nothing about this game yet beyond the little info we have.

I guess I will end it like this... if you hear someone call an FPS game a COD Clone is not your instant thought a game that isnt as good and never will be? (assuming you hold COD in a positive light).
DarkTower805  +   915d ago
@StayStatic, you forgot that any hack and slash game is a God of War clone.

Reading the article, what does this mean?

"Project Adventurer is planned for a 2013 release for X360 and PC –with plans for a Playstation 3 version of the game"

Why not just say for release on the pc, 360 and ps3? Will the ps3 version be delayed? Do they think ps3 fans will not be receptive because of Uncharted? Or is ps3 too hard for them to figure out?

Trekster_Gamer  +   915d ago
It could be argued that every game made these days is a rip off of another game. This is silly. I did not give the author of the article the satisfaction of clicking on the link. It is just a baiting article. This is something that thrives here on N4G. The Game looks good, but I will have to see much more before I can decide if I will purchase full price, wait for the bargain bin or pass it up all together.

How is this an Uncharted wannabe?
ado908  +   915d ago
I'm just curious why is it being compared with Uncharted? I don't understand. Besides the fact you might treasure hunt in this game, what is the core similarity? Because I'm not seeing why this is an uncharted wannabe. Not only that this game is in first person. So what gives?

The_Infected  +   914d ago

HmongAmerican  +   914d ago
The character and the art style do look similar. I want to see if they can make you care about the main character or hero in this case, because most of the time you won't see your character body. Maybe just between cut scene and we all know game with first person perspective. You don't really care much about the main character or know what he's look like.
But what about Uncharted itself? What was original about it? It certainly wasn't the 8-hour campaign, the linearity, the cover-based shooting, the light platforming elements, the Nolan North voice acting, the regenerative health system and checkpoints that hold your hand through the game's toughest parts, nor was the tacked on multiplayer with the same old game modes that has been done to death in 3,629 other shooters...It sounds like Uncharted is a wannabe of something.

Here is a 30 minutes off-screen footage from it. There are some Uncharted elements in it, it's not that hard to find them. Needless to say that it looks interesting. Go to 4:32 and you will hear him saying Uncharted. Obviously, he did not mention it just for fun.
