Uncharted is a cinematic experience, although some game mechanics are similar. Let Uncharted be Uncharted and Tomb Raider be Tomb Raider.

i swear they should rename themselfs

@ Irishguy95

You might want to do a bit of growing up there brother.. 18yrs old? Time to get out of those diapers and into your big boy pants.

Tomb Raider is great, but is nothing on Uncharted in my opinion.. Plot, Characters and generally Fluidity are still polished, and way out of Tomb Raiders reach. Tomb Raider attempts to create similar cinematic scenes and nail biting moments, but doesn't quite have the finesse.

Good game none the less, but what you talk is pure dribbel..

"The main protagonist Joel is said to have his own hit detection, and if he gets shot in the left arm you would see him hold his injured arm with his right hand. It will also lead to blood loss and the screen would turn red.

To fix it, you need to remove the bullet out of the wound, disinfect it with alcohol or antiseptic and bind the wound."

Wow.. that sounds awesome.. kinda like day Z


"Oh also, Tomb Raider was a Cinematic experience too. But it didn't let that rule the gameplay."

So those instant death quick time events don't rule out gameplay? Also tomb raider keeps yanking away control from you to show you that it is cinematic


And I never understood the flack uncharted got for having cut scenes. I mean uncharted in the end is a well crafted third person shooter. You can make the same critisism for a game like gears of war.

Except uncharted and gears are smart about when to give players control and they rarely yank control from you, except for cutscenes, which are designed to give the players a break.

And when you die in uncharted/gears it never feels cheap, and often its your fault. In tomb raider the only thing that has killed me are quick time events

Hell the opening of tomb raider was one of the worst openings I have ever played... not to mention the PC version shows a hand instead of f and you have no idea what the hell you are supposed to press

"Tomb Raider > Uncharted series"

Just to people that haven't played the Uncharted series. Not sure why you felt the need to bring that up here anyway.

Ezz20131928d ago (Edited 1928d ago )

this article about the last of us
but it's now about uncharted vs tomb raider
any one on this site still want to force his opinion that
tomb raider is better than uncharted games
even though reviews and scores disagree by alot
then by all means
..think what ever help you sleep the night :)

ps3 owners get uncharted and the best version of TR on consoles anyway

it's a win/win for ps3 owners ;)

Eyeco1928d ago

You know I could never understand if you were trolling or not, I mean you did have some sense in you're comments but based on that comment alone I'm convinced its official you're a troll

Irishguy and j-blaze are welcome to their opinions, just as long as they understand they're in a tiny minority.

The Last of Us will be yet another amazing game from ND, one of the most consistently great developers around. Can't wait.

Root1927d ago

@IrishGuy sound like a massive Tomb Raider fangirl, the ones who are so stuck in the past that they are furious that Nathan Drake stole Laras platforming crown.

Your probably one of the people who think "Uncharted copied Tomb Raider"


subtenko1927d ago

Wow this article is fake. You have some nerve whoever wrote this. When stuff like this happens, you should ban the site from being submitted on here.

_QQ_1927d ago (Edited 1927d ago )

as a single player experience. i don't think it will be bettar than MGS4, bioshock,Red Dead or Skyward sword. and obviously it cant compete with games like sc2 or dota2 in the online catagory. gonna be amazing. but not best of the gen. also @ Root pretty sure the platformer crown goes to Mario. you mean shooter/platformer.

DigitalRaptor1924d ago (Edited 1924d ago )

-- "fake "paid" reviews" --

A new level of delusion. Just wow... Apparently people are also "faking their excitement" for The Last of Us too, eh j-blaze?

-- "also, ND said they want to revolutionize and change the gaming industry with this game but TLoU looks to be nothing like they say, it's a normal game, nothing special, nothing groundbreaking, and i already know how the game will end" --

If you think the game is nothing special, and nothing groundbreaking, and nothing like they say, then why did you reply to me via PM with the following, when I proved wrong all the things you are claiming?

-- "you were right on most things you said, i didn't know what to say...but still ND's attitude is cheap and their games are overrated TLoU will be no different! cheers!" --

It's a clear sign of delusion when you accept one thing, then go far against it the next day. You are so desperate for this game to fail that you will lie to people even when you know the truth and admit the truth in places where you think you can't be exposed.

The reviews will come out and the actual body of text (not just the score) will dictate how incredible TLoU will be from a reviewer's perspective. You can call reviews "paid" and "fake" all you want but at the end of the day all you're doing is being 100% butt hurt because things don't go in your favour. You want people to share in your unfounded and overzealous hatred for Naughty Dog, but it's just not happening.

You can't downplay this:

I can't wait to see your new level of butt hurt when TLoU is EVERYTHING they said it would be and actually takes emotional storytelling in the industry and runs with it (just like Beyond: Two Souls with further carry), and is praised industry wide - not just on N4G. lmao!

I can't wait to see you pick apart reviews and call them fake. I can't wait to see you take troll reviews and call them good. I can't wait to see the utter desperation in your motives to downplay an excellent genre-defining game.

This article is fake Neil druckmann has stated in his twitter.

Donnieboi1928d ago (Edited 1928d ago )

Man the hype is getting rediculous. People dont even know anything about this game. I love ND too, but seriously the delay and the fact the demo was delayed to come out only a little while before the actual game releases, makes me feel unsure about this game. I won't be a mindless drone who hypes up a game even more than the company who makes it does. I'm gonna wait for reviews to come in before I buy it. Been burned by too many overhyped games simply because people overhyped it.

Better safe than sorry in My book.

Ezz20131927d ago (Edited 1927d ago )

what ppl ?!
pretty much every site played the game
read the previews

we saw tons of gameplay
watch the gameplay videos

either that you live under a rock or live under a rock

Intentions1928d ago (Edited 1928d ago )

I wanna play it now :).

Imagine next gen AI's/game mechanics :D

PSVita1928d ago

That's what I'm most excited about.

r211928d ago

Oh man oh man. Just when i think i cant get any more excited for TLOU, a new preview just makes it even more so! Just 2 more months folks.

Darth Stewie1928d ago (Edited 1928d ago )

I know how u feel. I opened up my God of War Ascension and The Last of Us voucher still had the old May 7 release date and that made me sad. Oh well this game will be worth it.

r211928d ago

Dude that must be torture for you. Having the demo right there ready to be played but Sony/ND says 'no,you wait till we say so'. Its more hell for me though since I dont have the extra cash to buy GoW: Ascension :C

GribbleGrunger1928d ago

This game is going to crank up the tension like no other game. Everything has been designed from the ground up to make life difficult if you don't mind your step and just rush in with your guns blazing. This is MGS+ with teeth! I'm going to be stealthing the hell out of this game and enjoying every damn minute of it. 25 hours of pure, unadulterated fear ... Marvellous!

Bathyj1928d ago

I can already see people complaining because we'll have to unlearn alot of gaming conventions. No blind fire, limited ammo. The short attention span, run and gun crowd are going to have a tough time adapting.

But I'm with you, I'll be sneaking every step of the way. I'll stalking for minutes at a time for one enemy just observing. Its gonna take me back to the tension I first felt with Tenchu and Manhunt.

GribbleGrunger1928d ago (Edited 1928d ago )

I agree. There are some people that just won't get it, but that's fine IMO. Stealth isn't for everyone. [run on sentence alert:] The only thing that worries me slightly is that some reviewers will consider it broken because they can't come to terms with it and their egos won't permit them to admit their inability to understand the mechanics. MGS fans are going to enjoy it for certain, but COD fanatics may just find the whole thing too damned hard.

One small note from a Gaff poster: The input lag appears to be 'heft' and is simply a translation error. No other preview has mentioned this so I tend to believe him. Joel is grounded in reality and hasn't got the super human versatility of Drake. I'm actually looking forward to that too.

Ace_Pheonix1928d ago

Haha, have you ever seen this guys playthrough of MGS2? It's such a hilarious train wreak. I'll definitely keep my eye out for his playthrough of TLOU. COD kids really just need to stick to playing COD on their 360s.

Bathyj1928d ago

This kind of injury to a player is something Ive wanted for a long time. In fact I was hoping the enemies in Killzone would have it.

If you shoot them in the leg, they shouldnt be able to run. If you shoot their hands, they shouldnt be able to pick up a gun.

mayberry1928d ago

Good Killzone reference! Although Killzone does have incredible enemy A.I., It would be a step beyond to have a better hit detection system.

peowpeow1928d ago

Killzone has a great hit detection system, just that it doesn't have consequences for them. Would be awesome to see
