I'm going to go with Uncharted 2 on this one.

Convas919d ago

No contest. Uncharted 2 all the way.

Nitrowolf2919d 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.

XisThatKid919d ago

2 for Single player but 3 for multi

Evilsnuggle919d ago

Uncharted 2 has the best online multiplayer of all-times

Hicken919d 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.

SourShoes919d ago

UC2. 3 is a distant 2nd.

linkenski919d ago (Edited 919d 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..."

*wild car-chase sequence follows up*

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.

JsonHenry919d ago

My vote goes to 2 as well. I didn't care enough about part 3 to even finish it.

-Superman-919d 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.

frostypants919d 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.

Batnut00919d ago

I didn't even say anything about Uncharted3, I just said UC2 to me the best in the series.

assdan919d 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.

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.

Chitown71291919d 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

linkenski919d 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.

Chitown71291919d 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

Visiblemarc919d 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.

AdamMVP918d ago

That 8 minute video took me about an hour to shoot with all the interruptions and flubbed lines, haha.

Blackleg-sanji919d ago

Hmm thats hard but i have to say 2 hands down

creeping judas919d 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.
