IGN- Uncharted: Fight For Fortune Review

IGN:When Uncharted: Fight For Fortune was announced, many PlayStation gamers responded negatively without having ever played the game. Disappointed that a talented studio like Sony Bend would “waste its time” on a $5 downloadable customizable card game for the PlayStation Vita, players wondered – rather vocally – what this seemingly dud-of-a-game was all about, and why it was made at all. (PS Vita, Uncharted: Fight for Fortune) 7/10

I still am wondering why going this route?
People kept saying "UnKarted" not "UnCarded".

I bought it, gonna try it out soon.

Apparently you did not buy it and are not going to try it out soon. I assume n4g members are monitoring your every move. So sad.

@King85, Im guessing people felt his comment was irrelevant and in no way a reply to Y_5150.

OT:
hmm 7/10, better than i expected considering it's a card game.

It is quite fun! Works pretty well and is definitely worth the five bucks!

This is the defination of milking a franchise. A card game?? Wow!
Ron_Danger  +   818d ago
I know... What's next? An RTS? Or maybe and expansion to the third in the trilogy that just tacts on co op??

Yes that was a sarcastic troll

But seriously, it's more of a mini game expansion to Golden Abyss since you can use your Golden Abyss save data to unlock extra content

I guess you don't understand sarcasm, even when the word "sarcastic" is written

I understand what you are saying, even with the sarcasm.

However creating a Card game is pretty much scrapping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to milking.

I am assuming you are referring to Halo with your sarcasm.

If you are going to make a point (even if it's sarcastic), it should be comparing apples to apples so that the counter point (even sarcastic) still makes some sense.

Halo was originally going to be an RTS when Bungie first started the IP.

The Halo Universe is also a giant intergalactic war with several alien species involved. It only makes sense that an RTS would fit into the Halo Universe. As for the "co-op" I am assuming you are referring to ODST. ODST was suppose to be DLC from Bungie but MS decided that it would be better if Bungie expanded on the ODST title and give a full blown out story and campaign which then would have become too big to be considered DLC. It's no more "co-op" then any other Halo title. What it did bring was Fire Fight, a kind of Horde Mode.

So basically your "sarcastic" rebuttal is extremely weak. If Sony decided to release an expansion for lets say Scully's history then that would make sense, or even an RPG of characters in the uncharted Universe. But to make a card game is just a very basic and simple idea to capitalize on the name alone. It's easy to develop a card game and throw it out to consumers.

This is clearly one of the biggest attempts at milking a franchise since it's basically just a standard card game with Uncharted characters on the front of each card.

LBP becoming a Kart racing game...no problem, it's understandable since the game also allows you to create your own Karting worlds just like in LBP. So makes sense. But a TPS action title becoming a simplified card game....that's the basic essence of trying to get sales on the franchise name alone.

But hey, business is business and if consumers buy the game and it sells well, then give credit to Sony for giving the consumers what they want and turning a few buck or two in the process.

Well said lvl_up

How is releaseing a card game with Uncharted characters counts as milking as the franchise when Uncharted is the one of a few AAA franchises with less than 4 games to be released this gen? Assassin's Creed (as much as i like it) is miliked, CoD is milked, Uncharted and Gears of War are not.

Good card games make great handheld games. I'm down for this.
eferreira  +   818d ago
for 5 bucks i'll def try it out.
Ron_Danger  +   818d ago
If you played Rage, it's pretty similar to the card game in that but you can add boosters to your cards to buff their stats. There is a lot of replay ability and around 200 cards to unlock

card based games are getting really big as of late heck a facebook games like this just cleared 10mil for the year
Norrison  +   818d ago
It seems like naughty dog always have to make a spinoff their franchise after the third game.
Bodachi  +   818d ago
Not made by Naughty Dog at all.
Norrison  +   818d ago
Oh, well theres always a spinoff of their franchises then.
