Sony's First Party Exclusive, Uncharted 4 wins on multiple counts against Microsoft's timed exclusive, Rise Of Tomb Raider
Not suprised it's Naughty Dog afterall
Naughty Dog gonna Naughty Dog
Uncharted 4 looks miles better than ROTR
Kinda weird how originally people cried that Uncharted was ripping off Tomb Raider, yet with the reboot, Tomb Raider ended up taking A LOT of what Uncharted does into their own game...
Well it's not weird, it's true, uncharted was like a next gen tomb raider. But Naughty Dog are just superior developers so everyone is now trying to catch up by copying. There's no way Tomb Raider would get close to this in terms of quality!
At the same time though deep down Uncharted was nothing like the old Tomb Raider games
I'm much more into Rise of the Tomb Raider it looked more interesting to me
Lol have you ever played an Uncharted game?
I love where Tomb Raider has gone and is going, I've seen the extended gameplay, it's fantastic but no where Uncharted. Edit :I will be playing TR this "holiday" regardless of my feelings towards UC.
I don't - I'd rather a game called TOMB RAIDER actually did what the original game did - raid tombs. now, it seems like a third-person action shooter.
Don't like that TR dropped the dinosaurs. They were one of the best things about the series.
I agree TombRaider is going to be awesome and as an owner of both systems Xbox One being my primary system I will enjoy TombRaider this year and Uncharted next year.
PS1 TR it was the room puzzles i loved. And that effin t-rex!!! Anyone remember thatt beast
That is your opinion to have and rightly so. For me however its Uncharted all the way, no contest.
Both games I'm sure will not disappoint.Uncharted 4 does look on a different level to everything show at E3.And while I wait for that I'm sure I will be loving Tomb Raider.Win Win.
You and me both.
Yep. These guys should get together and make a cross over. Would be so cool.
No shocker. Hopefully TROTR will hit the PS4 before Uncharted 4 does.
I think it has to. If you play U4 first it will very likely ruin your enjoyment of ROTR and make it feel pedestrian. If you play ROTR first, I'm sure you'll have a great time and be looking forward to U4. It is NOT in their interests to release ROTR after U4, as it could long term damage peoples' feelings towards the franchise and that would be a real shame.
The chances of it releasing before uncharted are slim. MS probably put the cash down for 6 months to a year. This is surely a fall 2016 title. At any rate, I'm excited to play both. More so Uncharted. Tomb Raider looks Damn good and I love the direction Crystal Dynamics is taking the IP
Duh one game is on the PS4 & the other is not. If both were on it there would not be these sudden rise in comparisons
This is another reason I wish it would have just been multiplatform from the start. It's tiring seeing Sony fanboys polluting every Tomb Raider article with comments about how Tomb Raider sucks, or how it's "ok" or "pretty good" but Uncharted is sooo much better, and other similar nonsense. I love both series, but it's terrible to see one hated on just because it's a timed exclusive for the "wrong" console.
While I agree that those games are now used by fanboys to fight their stupid console war fights it's not unreasonable to compare the two imo. Let's not forget that fanboys will always find something to fight over. If it wasn't Uncharted vs Tomb Raider it would've been Uncharted vs Gears again (which makes much less sense in comparison). I'm sure that both games will end up being great even though Uncharted 4 impressed me more so far. Just because one game might end up being better than the other doesn't mean the other game isn't good.
Well do you not see MS fanboys saying the same things? They are making ROTTR out to be the best action game ever and not giving Uncharted any credit despite the reboot heavily borrowing from the Uncharted series. I did like the reboot, it was my first PS4 game, but it wasn't on the level of Uncharted 2 or 3.
I see most PS fans saying it's probably going to be a good game. Most of them liked the first for what it was, but many didn't feel it really wasn't a TR game other than in name. Most PS4 fans seem to want to play it, but are willing to wait for it, because the first one, while good, isn't something they can't wait for. UC4 has always had a higher hype for PS fans than TR ever did, and this would be true whether it was multi-plat or not. The ones that say it will suck are just fan boys, and do not speak for what I've seen the majority of Sony fans seem to say about the game.
I'm tired of MS fanboys calling Uncharted scripted in a derogatory sense while ignoring how heavily scripted Rise of the Tomb Raider is. Tomb Raider's scripted and linear gameplay is somehow not a negative because MS paid money to make it exclusive for Holiday 2015.
Well, Mr. Phil Spencer himself made sure these comparisons would happen. He wanted his own Uncharted (his words last year) so they went out and paid for it. Luckily for Crystal Dynamics, they hit the market first. Both games should be great, but TR will benefit from not having direct comparisons during their reviews.
Very true. CD was fortunate having ND delay Uncharted, but unfortunate to have Fallout 4 come out same day. I'm hoping it doesn't lose sales because of that.
Well Tomb Raider will be great but Uncharted 4 will be much better. I wasn't surprised at all that the Uncharted 4 demo was much better.
Comparing these two games is now completely irrelevant. I thought it would be interesting to see these two games face off, but after seeing gameplay for both, they are totally two different games. Uncharted 4 is a more in your face action packed adventure game. RotTR is a more of a stealth survival adventure game. Uncharted is going to appear more flashier than RotTR due to the level of excitement that goes on in the game. It's almost like comparing GTAV to MGSV two games in the same genre, but different type of gameplay. I feel like people who are going to end up playing both games (including myself) are going to like each game in their own way. If I had to choose one game it would be Uncharted 4. But that's only because I found more of an interest in that franchise more so than Tomb Raider. It has nothing to do with which is better.
ROTTR will big a great game no one is denying that but UC4 is just on another level.
I think we all knew this without having to see them.
I definitely preferred UC4's show demo to TR's but I'm certain both games will be great. With UC it's the characters, story and set-pieces which I really enjoy. With TR it's the level design, exploration and puzzles. TR's off-screen demos with the bear and the guards looked great. Tbh I can't wait to play either. Both are day one for me.
Me too. Just wish TR was releasing a bit earlier. Fallout 4 releases on the same day!
I wouldn't be surprised if Uncharted TNDC outsells the X1 version of ROTR. That'll prompt a quicker multiplat release
Given the disparity in sales on both consoles, the PS4 version of ROTR will give its X1 version a run for it's money despite being a timed exclusive. UC 4 should simply outsell the entire multiplat lineup.
Uncharted 3 sold better than both the PS3 and 360 versions of Tomb Raider. Its very possible for Uncharted 4 to outsell both X1 and eventual PS4 versions of ROTR
That's a pretty badass thumbnail though..
That's what I'm saying. Time for a cross-over.
Thats what i thought!!! LOL
Looking forward to both, I prefer the Uncharted series over the new TR games but they are still very good.
What? No Way....both games look amazing, neither trumped the other...I personally prefer the gameplay style of TR (more sneaking/scavaging) but anyone saying that one trumped the other is seeing what they want to see. I'm looking forward to both...but basing it on the E3 demo they were equal...TR looked great, and UC4 looked great...but really the UC4 demo was mostly just a driving bit with QTE elements.
There were absolutely zero QTE elements in the UC4 E3 demo. Rise of the Tomb Raider featured at least one. So Rise was guilty of QTE, UC4 was not. UC4 was also much more than a bit of driving as there was plenty of combat, both hand to hand & of the gunplay variety. You could boil Rise's demo down to "just a climbing bit w/ walking elements" & you actually wouldn't be wrong.
The Uncharted 4 demo did have a mashing segment, though. Uncharted as a series is also known for having cinematic button prompts every now and then, too.
@Blacklash My bad, you are right, there was the one moment where the guy was trying to choke Drake out where he had to mash triangle to get out. As far as button prompts during cinematics or prior games though, I don't remember the series having many of those...there was the stray timed square press when Drake would have to jump something, but they were always used so sparingly & the player kept control so often through sections that other games would've taken it from them completely that it's really hard to recall any glaring uses of them. I'd assume that UC4 will be the same. Both titles will be great I'm sure but in my opinion there's a level of polish & care in ND games that just isn't present anywhere else. Gameplay is so fluid & effortlessly controlled that it really places those games in a totally different echelon. People really can't understand the genius of ND titles until they get hands on with them for sure, UC4 will most likely be the same.
@Pistols Wait, i don't understand if you're trolling or you just saw the video of another game.
I'll personally be buying both. Uncharted 4's demo was simply Mind blowing. Drake & Sully both look incredibly detailed, and those models are in game. The environments looked equally amazing, along with a very impressive looking crowd, with nice animations. The jeep setpiece was more intense looking than any of the other setpiece sections from Uncharted 1-3. Rise of the Tomb Raider's demo was really good, along with the other demo I saw with Lara going stealthy on the enemies. The animations weren't as top notch " In my opinion" but still good looking. Lara's model looks really great though. Overall, I personally feel Uncharted's demo was on a whole different level "In my opinion" Simply stunning! Rise of the Tomb Raider looked really good though. Looking forward to both, regardless.
I'd like to see a game based on Chloe, with appearance from Drake. Yes, a crossover with Drake & Lara would be wonderful, but if it ever happened, i'd hope Lara realizes Drake already has a women named "Elena" Hands off Lara.
is Tomb Raider still coming to PS4 ?
that is suspected, but not 100 percent confirmed
Going to play both games, both look great.
yep, I'm inclined to agree with this statement. Tomb Raider 'Looks' great but what they showed I found rather boring
Uncharted was always better than Tomb Raider, and it won't be different this time. Only Rockstar and Bethesda are comparable to Naughty Dog.
Its not fair. You cannot compare a BMW to a Ferrari. Naughty Dog sets the standard and they are in another level. What they did with the PS3 was amazing and now they have much more room to work on the PS4. The demo at e3 was amazing. Tomb Raider seems a good game, but only that.
lets not forget there was a time Uncharted was trying to be TombRider and now the times have changed and its Tomb Rider trying to be Uncharted. Uncharted is still ahead in the game
Ad if this was ever in question?
Wait, you expected this to be a contest? You're talking about a developer who wasn't satisfied by simply creating the greatest new series last generation in Uncharted, so they decided to create a completely new IP with The Last of Us and in the process blew us away by not only delivering the game of the generation but a game many regard as the greatest game of all time.
Time to sign in once again to inform some kid who gets off way too much on ND. Mass Effect, Gears, bioshock, and LBP have something to say about greatest new series last gen. All four were superior to Uncharted, granted UC was in the top 5 of last gen. As for TLOU of us being GOAT or let alone GOTG, the day a game with a good story and average gameplay is considered above games that provide great gameplay(COD4, Fallout3, RDR, Zelda, Mario(classic), Bioshock, GTA, etc), is the day games should end and we should all switch back to T.V. and Movies. UC and TLOU are very good quality games, to me TLOU multiplayer was the best multiplayer experience since Gears 3 and the best part of the game itself(except maybe the voice acting), but please stop hyping these games up past what they really are: good games with a good story and O.K. gameplay.
From my perspective the pure gameplay of Demon's Souls, its dark style and the boss battles within it, have yet to be surpassed by any game, this gen or last. 2nd would be TLOU, then U2 and possibly MGS3 before that. Each to their own :)
I'm a fan of both series but yeah, Uncharted is a blast and I liked the Tomb Raider reboot but while they may offer some similarities, they both have their own identities. EDIT TR 2 is still one of the best games.
Do we really need to do this? Yes I think Uncharted is of higher production values but both are going to great games. Probably only one will be a GotY contender but that doesnt mean we have to have this my game trounced yours rubbish all the time. Despite the similarities, the games are pretty different too.
Did anyone honestly think it wouldn't?? Uncharted is just a much better franchise then TR right now but TR will still be a good game!
Man the hype train is bulding a full year ealy. Sadly you guys will comparing the uncharted collection to rise of the tomb raider lol. Gameplay over graphics. Killzone had better graphics than halo. Driveclub better the forza horizon 2. Keep your snazzy graphics I'll be actually playing an epic adventure game this fall. While you guys start malj g petetions to get it on ps4 lol,the hypocrisy here is amazing.
Rotr looks sub par as was TR definitive edition. Uncharted series had its high at # 2 but isn't anywhere near as good as Tlou. Uncharted is way too cliche. I don't think the series deserves the hype it gets when ND is capable of masterpieces like tlou. UC3 was an unnecessary installment as it was a step down in every way.
Both games look amazing but Uncharted 4 definitely nailed it
I have completed Uncahrted 1, 2, 3 and tomb raider (xbox 360) uncharted 3 is not fun, tomb raider is better.
Uncharted 3 is a man's favorite out of those 4.
