Were you worried that the multiplayer portion of Lara’s newest adventure might feel tacked on, or out of place? Well do not worry my dear readers, because from what we’ve seen so far, it looks quite engaging!
Even the multiplayer looks like uncharted. @Maiden Yeah they should it means that uncharted is the standard for the genre and its multiplayer.
Wow! It really does. ND should be flattered.
I always thought that Uncharted was a copy of tomb raider.
@omi25p in many ways, it is. but some people on n4g just don't want to see it that way.
omi25p It's not. Uncharted definitely borrowed a few thing's from tomb raider. But it was a third person shooter first, and an adventure game second. Where as Tomb raider was always more of an adventure game, exploring and getting med packs and stuff.
Wow nice Uncharted clone game you got there you freaking bunch of hacks!
UNCHARTED: A third person action adventure game. Based around a treasure hunter who raids ancient tombs for treasure and solve puzzles. While on his adventures he gets caught up in all sorts of trouble with war criminals ect. To defend himself he uses guns and melee combat to fight back his enemy and if need be he can escape using his ability to climb walls. TOMB RAIDER: A third person action adventure. Based around a treasure hunter who raids ancient tombs looking for treasure and solves puzzles. While on her adventures she gets caught up in all sorts of trouble with war criminals ect. To defend herself she uses guns and melee combat to fight back her enemy and if need be she can escape using her ability to climb walls. Yet somehow these to games aren't similar in every way? Due to the fact they are so similar the one the came second is a copy (COPY DOESN'T MEAN BAD) Now stop lying to yourselves, Uncharted is copy of Tomb raider. But it doesn't mean Uncharted is a bad game. Its better than Tomb raider (Except UC3 which is awful)
@omni25p, your description of Uncharted isn't accurate. Not every Uncharted game is based around ancient tombs and war criminals for example, you're thinking of Indiana Jones.
@Omi Actually Uncharted is more inspired by Indiana Jones than Tomb Raider, infact the best way to describe uncharted is Indiana Jones directed by Joss Whedon. But the gameplay in previous tomb raiders and uncharted were totally different. The only similarity the games had was the platforming, which so many other third person games like Prince of Persia used. Uncharted was primarily a third person shooter, where as tomb raider was more about platforming... even though uncharted did platforming much better and tomb raider legends adopted uncharteds platforming, as you always needed to hold a button to stay on a platform. And combat in tomb raider were all forced archaic confrontations where you don't have verticallity but must instead flip around and use the games auto aim to defeat enemies. And if anything the story of tomb raider is bonkers as f***. I mean they added angels and demons, egyptian and norse gods. If anything Uncharted and Indiana Jones are more grounded, where as tomb raider is more devil may cry So yeah, asides from how the platforming looked the games have very little in common. Also how was uncharted 3 terrible? Story may not have been as tight as 2, but the game was still extremely solid
There are plenty of other games with a lot more in common than these two. "But they're both treasure hunters so it must be a copy right?? Gtfo. Has no one ever played Tomb Raider in the past? It's puzzle and platforming heavy. Uncharted's gameplay is different. It is very action and shooter oriented. But NEW Tomb Raider, on the other hand, plays a lot more like Uncharted.
Tomb Raider didn't invent treasure hunting in jungles, and Uncharted looks nothing like the Tomb Raider games that came before it. The Tomb Raider reboot clearly borrows Uncharted's style.
I'd rather say that Uncharted was more like Indiana Jones considering Tomb Raider was always just considered Indiana Jones with a hot chick as the lead role.
You know...it's funny you say that. One of my uncles was playing uncharted a while back and he said that the mp and the game reminded him of tomb raider.
Apart from the protagonist that is a treasures hunter too the Uncharted series has nothing to share with the "old" Tomb Raider games. How can the multiplayer of it remind you(or your imaginary uncles) of the Tomb Rider series if this is the first game in the franchise to have one?(except for the coop mode of Guardian of Light). You know...it's funny you say that(cit.) ;)
That's not a bad thing though, I kind of like the look of this one alot more than previous outtings with lara...
it looks fun...but yes looks very much like uncharted but with a bow and traps...but it looks like you can have fun and enjoy the MP but i wouldnt say theres alot of depth with the MP samething God of War is doing
Funny thing is Uncharted looked like Tomb Raider way before Tomb Raider started looking like Uncharted
It pains me to say it, but when I watch this all I see is Uncharted - I can't help it. I'd love to believe what Eidos has done with Tomb Raider's multiplayer will be unique and original, but I have a horrible feeling that it won't be.
If you look at the game closely, it looks more deeper than Uncharted multiplayer, with traps and exploration don't forget that part too. Uncharted multiplayer rely on the cinematic environmental destruction effects for traps while shooting, this game have traps everywhere from the start. Heck you can even make your own traps. I read the latest Official Xbox Magazine, where they claim melee is a big part with characters agility too. It may not have better graphics than Uncharted, but it could still possible own it in single player and multiplayer. You don't always have to have the best graphics.
Doubt it will top Among Thieves. Ill admit the whole setting traps aspect of it is pretty cool.
You've clearly never played the MP of Uncharted. While trap building may not be apart of UC's mp, everything else you've seen in that video is Uncharted. And melee has a huge presence in the mp...
Haters can hate, but last time I check Tomb Raider was series before Uncharted. Uncharted carbon copy many things Tomb Raider had before, from the exploration, puzzles, and traps. So what if Tomb Raider multiplayer looks like Uncharted multiplayer. It's time Uncharted had a competitor. Hate all you want haters, you still gonna buy the game no matter what. I'm looking to get this on PC or 360.
@ashun the only thing Tomb Raides & Uncharted have common are their themes,Lars movement are to far exaggerated unlike drizzy drake's interactions with the world,which is some what more natural.
I was going to take your views on Uncharted seriously until I realised you're an Xbox owner... #NotYourGameToCriticise Besides, I wasn't being anti-Tomb Raider with my above comment. I was merely saying that I can't watch Tomb Raider without thinking that its multiplayer won't be that novel considering what ND's done before it.
"Deeper than uncharted" Not to be an ass or anything... but the traps are simply player controlled environmental hazards. Aside from that they look pretty much the same
Who cares if it's just like Uncharted? At least it'll rock if that's true...
Moveover Uncharted Nathan Drake, Lara Croft is back in action, and her multiplayer looks to give your multiplayer a true challenge. As they say: Anything you can do I can do better than you.
You've played Tomb Raider?! OMG YOU ARE FROM THE FUTURE!!!
hey you know that uncharted 2 is the most awarded game in history? move over my ass.
what does that have to do with anything?
Torchic, it means GTA4 is the higher rated on Metacritic, which means its better than Uncharted 2
The more I read your comments, the more I see an Xbot that wants Tomb raider to succeed simply because he can't have Uncharted. While PS3 owners are no doubt flattered that you're lusting after our exclusive, thinking Tomb Raider's multiplayer stands out from Uncharted's is delusional. Eidos have clearly been inspired by what Naughty Dog has done. I can't say if TR's online modes will be good or not because I've not tested them myself, but I can tell you that their resemblance to Uncharted's is uncanny. No one's moving anywhere - at least not yet...
I probably won't play the mp for this game, but it looks interesting enough to give it a try after I've finished with the campaign.
I find Zac very annoying
Plz ppl always trying to stand out or make things more than what it is. It looks like UC mp and if they reach that feel and fun they have a winner plain and simple. But let me reiterate again its obvious where they got their mp inspiration big timeeee!!!!!!! It is the utmost flattery whether ppl want to accept it or not. Ppl hate on UC so much lol and hate it has won tons of awards for what it has done. Uc2 is still a graphical benchmark in consoles and gameplay is still superb and no game has owned it ever since and i doubt Tomb Raider will.
yeah i agree but "Uc2 is still a graphical benchmark in consoles" uncharted 3 IS the graphical benchmark on consoles untill the last of us/god of war ascention/beyond two souls arrive
no i meant uc2. in regards to the game all around there is a consensus tht uc2 looks better thn uc3, specifically mp and character animations. Graphical benchmarks have set by uc2, gow3 and kz2 and 3 (which still wiped the floor with crysis2 lol)
I don't understand how any gamer can look at that footage and not see Uncharted. At least it looks good.
yeah its fine if they rip off uncharted but atleast make a good game out of it. it would be better if they improve upon it because thats what brings about progress. as long as they don't make a worse or half arsed game they should be fine. the story is what will set them apart i think.
It looks similar to Uncharted, but then I always thought they were fairly similar games... one was a bit more action orientated than the other is all. I really don't think that matters in the slightest either. I thought this Tomb Raider MP looked a hell of a lot better than my expectations. I've always been a Tomb Raider nerd since the original... so there is no question that I'll be geeking out to this reboot like I have all the others... And I will certainly be giving this MP a fair chance.
while other developers are busy copying, Naughty Dog is busy innovating and trying something different that something being the LastOfUs. lets see how long it is before we get a rip off of that.
that's the thing alot of games trying to copy uncharted while ND moved to something way different than uncharted with the last of us gotta love ND always want to be different crash Jack and daxter uncharted TLOU
the uc2 team tht made uc2 mp are the ones on tlou mp so expect one of the best mps ever
Good news for Xbox 360 owners. They finally get to experiance what it sort of feels like to play uncharted multiplayer.
Same here on the PC front. Can't wait ^^
I experienced Gears of War's multiplayer in Quantum Theory. It was shit so I'm glad I didn't waste money on Gears of War.
For me uncharted is better for its singlepayer. uncharted single player: amazing uncharted 2 single player: amazing uncharted 2 multi player: Pretty good uncharted 3 single player: amazing uncharted 3 multi player: just don't like it
Was it worth it to sacrifice another gaming icon for it? I don't think so. I was interested in the game at E3, but since then it has changed. I think i'll pass.
ahhhhh BS this reminds me a lot of uncharted..all who defend that this game looks different are those who havent played uncharted..
I'm definitely not defending it because it definitely has an 'Uncharted' vibe but if you think about it, it's not really a bad thing.
looking fwd to SP experience and now MP looks cool too, bonus.
From the outside it definitely has an Uncharted vibe to it. Traps and such give it a little different flare but this really does scream Uncharted style MP. And you know what? That isn't a bad thing at all if you ask me. If this game can deliver on all fronts a game in similar feel to Uncharted in game play and quality then everyone wins. Lets hope they deliver on the promise.
The article won't let me add a video so I'm putting it here.
first ever multiplayer in the tomb raider universe? why do they keep saying that? they even mention the Guardians of Light game. really looking forward to the game, though i don't know how much i'll play the multiplayer.
I am guessing they are splitting hairs in that GoL was "Coop" play and this game will feature actual competative MP as in some form of TDM, etc...
Much like the single player, the multiplayer also looks like garbage. Way to kill the franchise off even more.
Just spit my coffee out after this video, seriously...This looks like a "poor mans Uncharted multiplayer"
It looks like uncharted and far cry 3 to me but in a good way .. Day one :P..
Everybody wants to be Uncharted these days.
Just yesterday it was Call of Duty right?
I believe in an old article, there was a quote from one of the designers that you cannot pick/be Lara in the multiplayer. Is this still the case?
Big uncharted fan, and big tombraider fan.
I have been playing a fair bit of uncharted 3's mp, and this video looks a lot like it. It's not a bad thing, but I do hope they have a lot of different play types.
Part of that looked like they were carrying something, like the idol.
I really hope the single player feels like the tombraider of old though. I miss those days.
Are you fucking kidding me???? MP in Tomb Raider???? What has the world come to?
they are after the mainstream crowd.....those fuckers. no heart or passion, just a checklist.
lol this multiplayer has got Uncharted written all over it.
