the site that gave Ratchet a 7.5 and Uncharted 8.0 seriously what do people expect from that horrible anti-Sony website
youre right, Gamespot is dead for me.
it be that those 2 are just average games?
No way. Ratchet----mabye. but that cause ive played every sigle ratchet game, and its getting to much of the same. but Uncharted is awesome. def deserves more than a 8! 8.8 at least! but it is a matter of opionion.
Coming from somebody with a name like yours, I can see why you would say such thinkgs. You haven't played them so I won't bother but I will say one thing, they are far from average games. Last I checked, even 7.5 and 8 out of 10 was well above average.
Ratchet & Uncharted average games? It's pricks like those GameSpot reviewers that criticize truly talented and hard working creative people while they themselves create nothing of value. I find their reviews of each of those two games to be absolutely demeaning to the hard work and effort put into those games by so many people. Average games? My foot! Those games are exemplary in their field, with amazing technology and art, fun game design, and great writing. To undermine the efforts of the teams who created them is despicable. I have scarcely played more charming games than either of the two and I've had an amazing amount of fun playing them over the past 6 months or so.
I did play those games and they are average, sorry but it's the truth
Seriously... what do you mean average? Those games have incredibly precise & response controls, detailed and immersive level design, phenomenal art, technology, graphics, and animation, a lot of charm & wit and interesting stories. What is "average" about them? If you think they're average games, I'd love to know what some other average games are, in your estimation. Could you name a few, please?
@Xbox is the BEST It will be saying the big 3 on the 360 (Halo 3, Gear and Bioshock)are average and just overhyped. Actually I find (Resistance, Uncharted and Ratchet) far better games that were undervalued.
Ratchet&Lair are next on my to buy list,its good to know that theirs an Analog stick update,but I'm going to try it without the Analog controls
or is it u want more bubbles? because i remember u were the biggest fanboy of 360 and very blinded one also! so can u explain the changes? just curious.
i dont think its the same guy
The sixaxis controls=fail, try em out but you'll switch to analog quick
I tried the demo (in Hong Kong PS store) and the sixaxis controls aren't absolutely terrible, they just take time getting used to. The demo also lets you choose analog control so I suggest to anyone curious about this game, go check out the demo in the Hong Kong store. And don't worry, it's entirely in English, even the voice acting.
I tried the analog controls and, I have to say, I still prefer the motion controls. Now that the "dash" Sixaxis motion has been eliminated (it's now *only* a button on the d-pad), the motion scheme works much better (and practice helps too, of course). As the article notes, the 180-degree turn is now much easier to execute. I never really understood why everyone hated Lair so much. Beautiful graphics, great music, interesting story, and a fairly innovative (and fun) control method. I have no problem imagining that a fire-breathing dragon can be a little tricky to control at times.
Been a sony fan, so many conspiricies, so many people "paid off", so many anti Sony people, quick look Bill Gates is there on the Grassy Knowl......
What are you trying to say? The Military Industrial Complex...DIDN'T kill Kennedy? Think again.
I'm happy being a SONY Fan!!!;) 99% of normal people don't read this rubbish on this. PS1 was Brill!!!;-P PS2 was/is Brill!!!;-P PSP is Brill!!!;-P PS3 is Brill!!!;-P I'M HAPPY!!!;) I feel sorry for xBox Fans really!!!;-D +I played the Demo of 'Lair' wasn't bad if you like those sort of games really;)
lair is the game that persuaded me to exchange my ps3 for xbox360 and i've never regret it.over hyped crap game
only on PS#3
I still don't like how everyone dogs this game, It's not that bad - they did a great job on the music and cinematography. Theres a couple levels in there that will surprise you, and are very well done. Graphics were hit and miss, sometimes pretty some ways rough, just not polished enough. The controls were frustrating later in the game when the challenge went up and killing levels in time got to be more important. The main problem was the thrusting controller forward and back motions, which have the inherent problem of people pulling it in in order to be able to pull out and the game reads the wrong command. Seems they fixed this. I tried the demo to see how the analogue controls were, and actually preferred the six-axis as well
Sure it wasn't perfect but it was far from horrible. Now with the new controls, you can bet that many more will give this game a fair shake as it is a fun game to play and heck, how many other games let you play with dragons in 1080p?! ;-)
I tried the game with both the motion sensing as well as the analog. While I prefer the analog, I also enjoy the interactivity the motion sensing gives you. And seriously, jerking the controller towards an enemy you're attacking, isn't that bad. Just a matter of figuring out which dragon you're controlling. Once you've got that down, it's a no brainer.
I bought the game a few days ago and installed the analog patch. This game is very good in my eyes and I cant complain. I would give it a 8.0
Gamespot doesn't even hide TRY to hide it's anti-Sony stance anymore. Check out his quote from the article: "In actuality, the tweaked controls make it easier to notice a variety of other fundamental flaws." So Gamespot is actually saying that the new analog controls have somehow made the game WORSE by introducing (or making the gamer aware of) even MORE flaws with the game than Gamespot found before? So Gamespot's big beef with the game was the sixaxis controls. They fix that with a patch and what does Gamespot say next? Oh, yeah that's fixed, but now the game is even WORSE. Wow. Just wow. I'm pissed for giving them a hit by clicking on that article. Never again.
People should stop posting news articles to that trash website in here. Second to "XBOX IS THE BEST", you've played and beaten Rachet and Clank and Uncharted and say they suck right? GTFO of here and go to the Open Zone.
well still a flop, move on
Make no damm mistake ,The game was good as is and with analog controls is amazing!!,the presentation is above average and the graphics are beyond belief for first Gen. The review from gayspot(oh gamespot) is so pathetic.Game spot is heavily funded/ads by Microsoft mind you! and microsoft software developers!! Take all their reviews with lots of salt!!!! The reviewer seems to want everything handed to him and not have to actually work in this game he wants it all automated??the firing the targeting the flight?? this is a game about riding dragons not flying space craft..A-hole!!! get a clue or go buy ace combat . Game-spot must go away forever....!!!N4g Rules!!!!
