I'm going to go with Uncharted 2 on this one.
Convas  +   279d ago
No contest. Uncharted 2 all the way.
Nitrowolf2  +   279d ago
Agreed.

The first one was great, but two really amped it up in terms of everything.

3 however, though i did enjoy it a lot , I thought the pacing was all wrong and felt that each scenario after one another had to one up itself in whatever way possible. It was a great game in the end, but 2 really did hit the spot.

@Nitro
Exactly my thoughts on this. The biggest problem is the pace, no doubt. Too much tedious climbing.

The multiplayer was great, though.

2 for Single player but 3 for multi
frostypants  +   279d ago
Uncharted 2. Really, it's not even debatable...
Evilsnuggle  +   279d ago
Uncharted 2 has the best online multiplayer of all-times
DCfan  +   279d ago
Thats pushin it...
Hicken  +   279d ago
Maybe, but not by much, perhaps.

Gotta say, it was definitely one of my favorite multiplayers of last generation. Although I did like some parts of UC3's multiplayer better(like how dynamic the stages could be), Uncharted 2 was simply a total package of awesome.
SourShoes  +   279d ago
UC2. 3 is a distant 2nd.
linkenski  +   279d ago
I meant to disagree. 3 has the worst writing by far, and especially the ending is just UC2 ripoff. You get to the big eldorado-like place and then it starts to crumble and you have to escape.

The whole story about Drake and his motivations was needless IMO and awfully executed. You went through one blockbuster action sequence after the next, then right after that a crewmate -- Sully, Elena, Chloe or whatever -- stops up and asks something like "Why do you keep doing this!?" and then everything just moves on afterwards as if nothing changed... and it's the same thing everytime and it comes out of nowhere.

Elena: "Drake I've been on these runs with you for two games without ever doubting you... Now I've suddently decided I want a forced moral plot that doesn't fit in the game, so... why do you keep looking for adventure? You're getting reckless"

Drake: "I don't know Elena. It's just what I do because I have the passion for it"

Elena: "Okay..."

Uncharted 2, and it's not really a contest. What made 2 better than the others was not only the gameplay, but the multiplayer, the story (I didn't particularly care for Uncharted 3 mentioning Nathan was a fake Drake and just ignoring that bombshell the rest of the game), and the new game plus options that allowed more flexibility with what weapons you wanted to go into the campaign with that was a feature inexplicably removed from Uncharted 3. The pacing of Uncharted 2 was also much better than the other titles. Almost perfect pacing in that game, where Uncharted 3 is a bit of a chore to replay knowing some sections (Nate as a kid in the museum, for an example) are such a slow crawl. I felt the puzzles were much better in Uncharted 2 as well. Having said all that, I love all the Uncharted games, much as I love the Mass Effect franchise.

My vote goes to 2 as well. I didn't care enough about part 3 to even finish it.
-Superman-  +   279d ago
Just because Uncharted 3 was not that big improvement from Uncharted 2 to 3, than 1 to 2 dosent mean Uncharted 2 is better.

Uncharted 3 has better online, awesome co-op, and desert setting is more interesting.
frostypants  +   279d ago
Uncharted 2 had better set pieces and better writing. Also, what's with the suit-drones early in Uncharted 3? It's like they ran out of budget for other enemy models.
Batnut00  +   279d ago
I didn't even say anything about Uncharted3, I just said UC2 to me the best in the series.
assdan  +   279d ago
I think it's pretty unanimous that people agree it's uncharted 2. I'd say 3 is second and 1 is the "worst." Uncharted 1 is still an amazing game, but 2 and 3 are masterpieces.
ThatKanadianKid  +   279d ago
Lol at the end of the video. That's probably how my entire recording sessions would have gone had I tried this. I'd have to say Uncharted 3 was my favorite in the series. The combat, I think, was better and I enjoyed the locations traveled to a bit more. Couldn't stand Uncharted 1 aside from the story, game's AI was so unforgiving.
Chitown71291  +   279d ago
3 was my favorite too bro. Not sure why people didnt feel like it was better than 2, but I did. But different opinions I guess lol
linkenski  +   279d ago
I think from a story-analysis pov, 3 is objectively worse in how it is written. It just feels forced and has a lot of cheap moments.
Chitown71291  +   279d ago
@Linkenski I disagree. Personally I feel like more curveballs were threw in the story and it made fora more engaging story for me personally .(SPOILER) But the part where Sully supposedly dies had me so infuriated when I first play it lol. The locales are more mesmerizing and mind blowing as well. The desert and ocean scenes in 3D is amazing
Visiblemarc  +   279d ago
Yep! 3 *is* the best.

Never understood why people love to hate on it, while holding up 2 as perfect.

The entire series is great though, 1 is dated, but if you look past it's weaker graphics and unrefined mechanics, it's also awesome.
AdamMVP  +   279d ago
That 8 minute video took me about an hour to shoot with all the interruptions and flubbed lines, haha.
4logpc  +   279d ago
2
Blackleg-sanji  +   279d ago
Hmm thats hard but i have to say 2 hands down
creeping judas  +   279d ago
2 for the story line, 3 for the graphics and additional content. 1 for introducing us to something a little bit different in the adventure game genre.
ZombieDust  +   279d ago
Uncharted 2 hands down. Loved the others, well 1 was kind of bland TBH but thats after playing 2 and 3 before it. Uncharted 2 is the reason this xbox guy bought a ps3.
Dan_scruggs  +   279d ago
2. Moving on...
WeAreLegion  +   279d ago
2, but all three are fantastic. 3 had a great story, but they screwed up the mechanics. The patch helped, but it wasn't enough.
ObiWanaTokie  +   279d ago
exactly, i played the shit outta 2, then three at first and dropped it very quickly
Tontus  +   279d ago
Easiest question of all time, Uncharted 2 of course.

UC2 > UC3 > UC1
CaEsAr-  +   279d ago
Uncharted 2
isarai  +   279d ago
2 easily, i felt 3 had some great new mechanics but everything else just brings it down
iTehDroiD  +   279d ago
Am I the only one who thinks the first one is the best? :D I really liked the jungle setting in the first one more than the desert or snow settings and I don't know why ^^

uncharted TOH!!!!!!!!!!

but they were all awsome tbh.
windblowsagain  +   279d ago
All 3.

Uncharted 1 was raw, and getting to know the characters. I like the cover, could be broken, used nd's own physics system. Jetski ride.

Uncharted 2, big story. SNOW!!!, train ride. Used havok phyiscs system, ligting etc.

Uncharted 3, ocean ship, end of a trilogy, finding out new info on nathan,sully. SAND!!

I've enjoyed them all and look forward to more.
Inception  +   279d ago
Couldn't agree more with this. I enjoyed all three, even though among thieves had better MP than drake's deception, imo.
NintendoYouth  +   279d ago
Uncharted #1 was the best...

then the rest of the world caught on for #2 (now everyone loves Uncharted)
linkenski  +   279d ago
You "loved Uncharted before it was cool", is that it?
CaEsAr-  +   279d ago
Lol, hipsters everywhere :P
NintendoYouth  +   279d ago
You "loved Uncharted before it was cool", is that it?"

Damn right, then people like you and the guy below bought part #2 and it then became "a hit"

LoL

Definitely Uncharted 2. It has the best story of the three and has the most polished gameplay (even with its mistakes). Uncharted 1 was great too since it was a new experience at a time.

Uncharted 3 however, while it's good, coming after Uncharted 2, it felt rushed. The controls were bad (they had to updated), the story had a lot of plot holes and the characters weren't very good developed. It is still a great game with tremendous action and stunning visuals and tech, but overall, it's the weakest of the three.
plaZeHD  +   279d ago
What they did to Charlie, Marlowe and Talbot is almost a crime. Their presentation was amazing, I immediately fall in love with each character. But then they cut off Charlie, gave little to no screen time for Marlowe and made Talbot inconsistent.
They also introduced some shitty ass characters like Ramses and Salim.
uncharted 3, but uncharted 2 was best for when it came out
HeartlessGamer  +   279d ago
Uncharted 2
fonger08  +   279d ago
Definitely Uncharted 2, the different environments, the writing, the acting, and it even an awesome boss fight.
Ezz2013  +   279d ago
uncharted 2/3
ivan510  +   279d ago
Coming from an Xbox fanboy, uncharted always looks like a fun series. I wanna play that series sooo bad.
Perjoss  +   279d ago
2 > 1 > 3
HeWhoWalks  +   279d ago
For me, Drake's Fortune is still the best one, followed by Drake's Deception. I love the Francis Drake stuff, and since both of those titles involved personal stories more than anything (Uncharted 2 felt more Hollywood-ish - though it worked), those two lead the pack for me.
NikX  +   279d ago
Uncharted 2 and 3 in my opinion.
Ninjatogo  +   279d ago
Overall I liked 3 the most. The graphics were a step up from 2 and the gameplay changed to make it a bit more fun. (Grenade throw back, ledge pulling, power plays, split screen)
PS3and4_HAS_GAMES  +   279d ago
Wasn't ledge pulling in part 2? And grenade throw back? Damn did I miss something. You talking about in mp right.
Ninjatogo  +   279d ago
Yep, I was talking about multi-player, but after a quick search it appears you are right; the ledge pull appeared in Uncharted 2 first.
PS3and4_HAS_GAMES  +   279d ago
Uncharted 2 because it took people by surprise. It was a huge jump from uncharted drakes fortune which was a great game but uncharted 2 went to a whole other level with graphics and gameplay. It was damn near flawless plus what they did with multiplayer was just brilliant and unmatched. Now im not saying uncharted 3 wasn't good because we all know it was great but the wow factor was raised more with uncharted 2. Just a great series altogether.
MetalJedi  +   279d ago
Uncharted 2 hands down.
LoveOfTheGame  +   279d ago
Can't believe no one said the correct answer.

It's obviously TLOU :).
Blacklash93  +   279d ago
Almost everyone is going to say Uncharted 2. It's easily the best-designed game in the series, overall.

UC1 was a bit rough around the edges, with less fluid gameplay, less features, and more annoying and repetitive encounter design than its successors. Part of what made 2 so enjoyable was just the sheer improvement over it.

UC3 felt rushed and poorly stitched together in several places. It was disappointing in a few ways, but it still had most of UC2's smooth and refined gameplay and still had plenty of exciting and stunning moments. I still think of it as significantly better than UC1, objectively.

I'd say 2 > 3 > 1

All of them. I can't choose one over the other. Uncharted is my sh!t.
