Sony's First Party Exclusive, Uncharted 4 wins on multiple counts against Microsoft's timed exclusive, Rise Of Tomb Raider
I'm sure everyone knew Uncharted 4 would trump Tomb Raider. Naughty Dog is amazing. Possibly the best developer out there.
Did you see the breakdown video? The amount of details they point out will break your mind. I'm a part of the camp that thinks ND are aliens. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I just saw the Uncharted 4 E3 '15 demo breakdown video…That was an great breakdown. And I love how Uncharted 4 is going with the open level design to give options on how to get through each level
"I'm a part of the camp that thinks ND are aliens." Illuminati confirmed? haha, I actually thought the video was CGI up until the shootout.
After seeing that video idk what to say really how but Good God:)
NXG is the best. His calibration video made me realize I was messing up my input delay with some of the post processing effects. Highly recommend to anyone with an HD display. It goes beyond 'select game mode' He needs more subscribers.
Trumped it, poured gas on it and lit it on fire
Next-gen doesn't truly begin until Naughty Dog says so. Incredible.
@AndrewLB This is you now http://i1138.photobucket.co...
Took @andrewlb 20 minutes to write that. Everyone knows uncharted is heavily scripted. Seeing one quick demod section played once it's going to appear linear. But i def agree, the is much to be excited about.
NXG >>>>>>> Eurogamer Uncharted 4 is >>>>>>> ROTR ND >>>>>>> Crystal Dynamics + Square Enix
That video says it all!
They both looked great, but if I were to pick a winner. It would definitely be Uncharted 4 by a longshot. Everything about it looks almost too good to be true. The gameplay looks refined to perfection and my God those graphics.
Uncharted 4, stunning game, stunning graphics, untouched by anything this gen.
I love both games, but this wasn't even a contest.
Uncharted is 4 games in and they've always remained true to the series roots without changing the franchise in general to keep it fresh Tomb Raider....well look at what they had to do with the reboot. It's not even Tomb Raider anymore So yeah Uncharted 4 wins over Rise of the Tomb Raider everytime because it's still an Uncharted game
Sometimes I still wish TR to be more puzzle & exploration heavy rather than action-oriented like the reboot now.. I still remember stuck on this one puzzle about bell or something, it's before I know google and I have to play it all night before I got past that.
"What it should be" isn't really any indication of what game is better, though. What the games actually are is the judge of that. I wouldn't write off Tomb Raider so quickly. It has plenty of elements that Uncharted doesn't have (unless Uncharted 4 has hubs, ability progression, and optional areas this time around) and anyone who played the reboot should realize that. It still has its own identity.
Yes UC4 looks amazing,BUT are you playing this game this year or later next year, by then you might have played TR, if ND don't delay it further. UC4 has been in development for over 2years, it was being created before the reveal of the PS4, as it was meant to be a launch title. 2yrs on nothing but trailer. TR has not been in development as long. The longer a developer spend on a product production the better the quality you have all round,but for now, TR win this hand down as it has a release date and UC4 does not, I will be playing while UC4 is still in the development, I would have completed TR many times over and UC4 will still be in ND studio development lab. But when its released my expectation better be blown away.
Denial, its a terrible thing isnt it?
"2yrs on nothing but trailer" Are you for real?! We've seen 2 LIVE gameplay demo's on stage at 2 separate shows with varying gameplay mechanics! Tomb Raider looks great and I'm sure I'll enjoy it, but it doesn't have me wishing time would pass in order that I can play it like Uncharted 4 does. U4 is just leagues ahead in gameplay, graphics, story (going by past games), acting, script and without doubt overall likeability factor - and yet I'm still excited to play TR as well. If that doesn't tell you HOW good U4 is shaping up, nothing will.
@xxLuckyStrike, Dude, don't instigate. I could just as easily ask you where your multiplicative Xbox cloud power is. Fact is, frame rate and resolution will never always be 1080p/60fps because it's a matter of pushing the hardware. Even if PS4 were 1,000 times more powerful, if Uncharted 4 took advantage of the enormous power leap, it would still be 1080p/30fps. If there was a console as powerful as a PC with Titan cards, an i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, a game made to push that hardware couldn't hit 60fps either.
It's the difference b/w literally pushing video games forward and releasing another really good adventure game. Honestly, I don't think I'll have time for Tomb Raider this fall, especially if Persona 5 joins the mix.
Another article where they overhype that average game called TombRaider. And before people call me PS fanboy. Im a PC gamer i don't own a PS4 yet. But the previews tomb raider was overhyped, had sluggish gameplay and average to boring story. Most games at E3 Trumped The Rise Of The Tomb Raider!
Uncharted may owe s lot to original tomb raider and Indiana Jones, but make no mistake about it There would be no tomb raider reboot if there was no uncharted. Now tomb raideraider owes a lot to uncharted series And seriously to haters, this is ND quite possibly the best development studio in Hong. So do keep hating but open your dm eyes to realize that tomb raider is now copying uncharted. And nothing wrong with that, if you are gonna copy I guess copy the best Uncharted 4 the best on stage demo at e3, after that fallout 4 Horizon the best new ip with a on stage demo at e3 Imo
I don't understand why people say Naughty Dog are the best developers out there. Uncharted and TLOU are great, but do these games really make the company the best developers out there? People gonna' start defending Crash Bandicoot Warped, Way Of The Warrior and Jak Racing?!
In many people's opinions they have "become" the best. I loved Crash but its comparatively primitive and I loved Jak but it had its fair share of flaws as well. I actually preferred Spyro and Ratchet from Insomniac over both those sfranchises. Now ND are just so far beyond the other developers with a level of polish and detail that you just don't see anywhere else. Rockstar North gets close but their different breeds because of the genre difference.
Oh lord, being the best is subjective, which is why many have a hard time giving the crown to just ND when other Studios like Rockstar and formerly irrational games put out impressively polished games. Here's the thing, The level of polish and attention to detail ND has is downright obsessive. And No other development is doing what they do to this degree. Rise of the Tomb Raider looks fantastic... I can't wait to play it. If I had an xbo I'd be all over it this fall. But I'm content with playing it next year after Uncharted 4. Naughty Dog has made great games that's built their pedigree to what it is now, and everyone who's stuck with them to this point knows when they do something you get the best most polished game experience this side of gaming. The accolades speak for themselves.
I think making 3 of the highest rated games EVER kinda says it all.
No doubt this was going to happen, it was the success and overall flawless design and execution of the uncharted series that inspired the tomb raider revival. Although Tomb Raider came many years before, it always had clunky controls among other things. Everything tomb raider does now it learned form uncharted (and borrowed some things here and there from other games). Tomb Raiders failing is that it just doesnt do it as well as Uncharted. I've seen a lot of games try to emulate a lot of the things naughty dog were doing with uncharted last gen (incredibly fluid dynamic/contextual animations being one) and although they've come close they still havent pulled it off as well as ND.
No it didn't, it's a matter of opinion
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
