Uncharted: Fight for Fortune review

Pocket Gamer: "It's not exactly the next step we were expecting for the Uncharted series, but Fight for Fortune - a digital card game based on the action series - certainly has its merits." (PS Vita, Uncharted: Fight for Fortune) 6/10

interesting, never been into card games, but I may pick this up! Something a bit different I guess, and different is good.

This just reflects how messed up the rating system is. Apparently, a mobile-type game is superior to BO:D? I haven't played either but I imagine BO:D is better? I don't know... I really don't know about the rating system anymore...

I've never even heard of Body odor smiley face, is it any good?

So this is how it goes...

The reviewers don't have any game to compare with Uncharted: FOF whereas COD: BO:D is being compared directly to the console version + the title says "Call of Duty" so you know.. Expectation level increases x1000

If BO:D was a new IP then it would have got much higher score than it is now.

It's kinda unfair..

Anyways, back on topic.
This game looks fun, not my type tough.. But I just might give it a try. You never know what's in store for us.

Back on bo:D topic,Their are a few games cod coulda been compaired to other than console versions like resistance... That actually shoulda been a direct comparison being its in the same system made by the same people... But instead they compaired it a home consoles which was unfair. It's better than resistance overall but still receives lower scores. Also their are other fps on other handhelds like the ds's cod or psp's resistance ( whom had higher scores somehow). Ratings are dead they've all gone Hollywood in my eyes.
Not disagreeing here just pointing it out.
Revert to uncharted ill play a demo first if any or see some you tube of bit in action. I've never been into card games so it would have to impress for me to but ... Even if it had a 10

Oh noes! Somebody might genuinely like a Playstation game, better pre-emptively put them down ¬_¬

I want an uncharted spinoff where you play as young Sully before he met drake.
I think that might be fun.

See when he started smoking cigars and how he found his mustache.. lol

Men like Sully are born with a mustache.

So now Uncharted has branched off into other genres simply based on the Name alone huh?

It was deemed bad from many people on this site of a certain group of console loyalists that Halo doing an RTS game was considered as "milking"....

How many Uncharted's have been released this gen?

Uncharted 1
Uncharted 2
Uncharted 3
Uncharted Golden Abyss
Uncharted Fight the Fortune (The Card Game)

How many Halo games this gen

Halo 3
Halo Wars
Halo Reach
Halo 4
Halo: Anniversary (HD Remake)

So there has only been 1 more Halo game released this gen thanks to the Halo HD remake(which is just an HD remake of the original that is playable due to BC on the 360 anyways).

I hope we can all stop with all this MS is "milking" BS since clearly Sony is now looking to "expand" on the Uncharted name by releasing a card game video game....

If I was Sony I would take the PS3's from everyone who complained and tell them to go F**k themselves.

Of all the things to complain about."

And you tell me to "Grow up".


Did you tell me to grow up because I said something that may have shown Sony and the holy grail of the Uncharted Name in a negative light?

Most likely. You seem to fit the bill of that particular crowd of console loyalist I pointed out that plague this site.

I'm not sure if you can count this game though. All the Halo games are full 60 dollar entries into the series, this card game is just a side thing. Plus it seems rather unfair to only count this gen.

I don't have any problem with MS milking Halo, I love the series, my main problem is the lack of exclusive new IPs that interest me in recent years.

3 Uncharted games and 1 interactive comic thing on one platform.
2 Uncharted games a handheld platform.

6 full Halo releases on one platform.

Hardly fair to compare the two when Uncharted has been split over 2 platforms and one of the games is a spin off download.

@ Lv up gamer- Milking is good business practice. Some may not like it but Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, and the devs who make games for them are not in it for entertainment, They are in it for the $$$$$$$$$$. Milking will happen and will never stop. Look at COD, every year there WILL be another version of it on every system. EVERY year it sells regardless of the complaints we as consumers will make.( personally I don't care). Dont know why we complain really, nobodys twisting arms or putting a 357 magnum to your head making you buy it. So complaints about milking are like complaining to a def person. We buy, they sell. Simple.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   881d ago
I agree, however this site is extremely one sided when it comes to "milking". According to many of the people on this site, only MS "milks" franchises and it's considered "bad" and "taboo".
MrDead  +   881d ago
It's users like you that keep bringing this up, with comments like this you have just made yourself the same as the people you’re complaining about. Just enjoy games and stop with the stupid brand loyalty.

Edit: I stand buy my comment 39days ago as people where complaining about a free app that has no affect on them apart from the opportunity to play a game.

People on this site (Including myself, so I'm not excluded) complain more about Nintendo and the Mario franchise than any other franchise on any other platform. We see more Mario games on Nintendo Platforms every year.

What I think a lot of people fail to realize is that milking is doing the same thing with no change. Just look at a farmer that milks a cow; It's the same routine every day, that never changes. In the halo franchise, we have seen an RTS and a different approach to the game and story. With uncharted, we now have a card based game and prior to that we been to different areas of the world and seen a different side of Drake and the cast. So, I now realize that there is no real milking here.

We live in a world, (so, it's not just this site) where people will complain about everything, just because they/we can. And we will always have people that will stick up for what they believe in.

Mr dead has a great point .. Got me thinking maybe that's what's hurting gaming most right now.... People need to just shut up and enjoy games... Brand loyalty should be left up to the people who work for the company's, us as gamers need to stfu and play.. Someone needs to post an article about it titled "STFU and PLAY" instead of all this negativity we see all the time.

I don't see the reason for the bashing because it's a card game and it's Uncharted. Sure, most people would like to see another great Naughty Dog or Bend Studio third person shooter, but the fact that it's a card game with Uncharted means it's impossible for it to be good?

Yugioh wasn't originally a card game. It was an anime first, even if it was about cards.

I for one enjoy these types of games. I usually don't purchase them in video game format because the ones out on sale are yearly releases, but I used to collect and play Magic(haven't for quite some time though,) and I've purchased a few video game versions of these titles. I purchased one of the Yugioh games for the DS, and it would have been an amazing game if you didn't have to repeatedly play against people and win to get enough money to buy a pack of cards. The amount of time you had to put into it to progress was ridiculous.

My favorite original card game on a video game, however, was XenoCard. Sure there were only, I think, 136 cards to customize your deck with, but it was an extremely well designed game. My Gnosis deck was near unstoppable(never lost when I went first, rarely lost when I went second.) Against the AI I never lost, but some friends of mine had the game and liked XenoCard, so we'd add our decks on the same file and play against each other since there's a 2p versus.

I haven't purchased Fight for Fortune yet, but if it's close to being as good as XenoCard then it's $5 well spent.
