Uncharted: The Gears Of War Killer?

Psxextreme writes:

I'll make this abundantly clear off the bat: despite some of the more significant technical glitches in Gears of War 2, it was easily one of the best games of 2008 and certainly one of the best of the generation. However, I found Uncharted: Drake's Fortune to be a cleaner, and ultimately more entertaining, production. Yes, I'm talking about the first Uncharted and the most recent Gears. Considering that it's silly to compare either Resistance 2 or Killzone 2 to Gears, the closest PlayStation 3-exclusive competitor is Naughty Dog's new series. ...and in all honesty, I see Uncharted eventually surpassing Epic's series in terms of overall quality and fun factor (yes, I'm aware the latter is subjective).

I'm not even gonna get into the better graphics when the story alone blasts it out water.

Edit(off topic): People just approve this now just to tick off all the jealous fanboys.

MasFlowKiller3600d ago

OMFG i @!%!**#@#!! hate that, game killer term.

@!%!**#@#!! both games have their fans, so even if one if better then the other, one establish franchise cant kill another establish franchise.

so just cut that out

Huh3600d ago

i played gears of war i dont know what kind of a universe it is set in i mean when humans can only say 'f***' 'sh**' 'a**' and 'mother' then you know they are in a very differnet universe uncharted 1 was incredible nathan drake is so funny and interesting he reminds me of indiana jones when he was young and was the ladies man

PataponKnight3600d ago (Edited 3600d ago )

Nathan Drake, I would say, is in the top 5 of protagonists of video game history, period.

sonarus3600d ago

If universe was determined by that then Gears and KZ2 would be in the same universy

LightningPS3PS33600d ago (Edited 3600d ago )

nevermind. I see what he means. Uncharted does play the most like Gears of War. They are both third person shooters. And use similar cover system.

Personally, I think Gears of War is overrated and Uncharted underrated. Hell, I beat Uncharted 6 or 7 times, the gameplay just works.

crck3600d ago (Edited 3600d ago )

As a single player only experience Uncharted is the more polished and fun game. More variety in play mechanics, better animation, better acting, better characters and better story. The only weakness in Uncharted was the puzzles. They were ridiculous simple. But the fact that Gears gives you co-op and multiplayer evens the two games up and give the better overall package and value to Gears.

Haha Lightning whats the matter? Need bubbles, lol. Woo hoo my three month ban is over.

@Lightning below: Well that sounds good. Keep it up. Now just don't force it and allow the dark side flow through your veins(muahha) and sit back and relax because you don't have to worry about the PS3 train going south again. Choo choo, all steam ahead. ;)

Sarcasm3600d ago


Agreed. This "Game-killer" crap really needs to stop. There's always one idiot in the sea of idiots in the media that pull this.

LightningPS3PS33600d ago

Do, I need bubbles?

I've been in a good mood recently.

Two reasons, PS3 and XBOX 360 both shipped the same amount of consoles worldwide in 2008. And Killzone 2 is the other reason.

I've heard people say that I'm acting different, if it has something to do with bubbles and it doesn't.

As soon as crap goes south for PS3 again, I'm gonna let everyone know how I feel about it, and they will take my last bubble again.

eagle213600d ago

Correction: still love every second of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. It's a CLASSIC!

Why dis3600d ago (Edited 3600d ago )

It would sell like a Gears killer if it came close that is.

I'v seen plenty of copy cat style gears games that failed.

This *ME TOO* crap has to go.

Quality lol Gears is a arcade style shooter nothing more and thats what sells it.

Rock Bottom3600d ago

MGS4 already did, and not even Gears of War 7 would surpass that.

PataponKnight3600d ago (Edited 3600d ago )

Poor Poggy woggy when will you learn sales mean nilch when it comes to the quality of a game? PS thanks for the disagree.

@Why dis below: "AI sucks ass in Uncharted" That is how I know you don't own a PS3 or ever played Uncharted, because you would know about the AI on crushing in the waterways or the merc deagle snipers in the church at the end, LMAO.

Lol, I see you gave yourself an agree with your other account.

morganfell3600d ago

And I saw an attempt to ripoff Killswitch and it failed miserably.

Why dis3600d ago (Edited 3600d ago )

Quality is your opinion the AI sucks ass in Uncharted. It doesn't provide the same gaming experience. The cover system of Uncharted may be copied but the battle system overall is a generic one nothing Epic in Uncharted.

Go ahead and attack them disagree lol.

Doesn't the PS3 have any games that can stand on their own feet? always being stacked up against successful 360 games lol

PS thanks for getting emotional about it the personal attacks are great.
Go ahead and attack then disagree.

Ha ha ThanatosDMC, they're the key to victory!


Danja3600d ago

dude Uncharted has some of the best A.I I have seen in a game this gen , the game may not have had online or Co-op but it didn't need them..

I have played this game around 5-6 times....bcuz it's just that damn good and im sure im gonna play it again b4 Uncharted 2 comes out.

enjoy ur Broken MP experience..

Halochampian3600d ago (Edited 3600d ago )

You have obviously never played gears. They never say "fvck" in Gears as I recall.

I can agree with your whole comment until you got to the "broken" part. Gears since the patch has been very playable and very enjoyable.

Marceles3600d ago

lol @ the AI sucks in Uncharted. That's where you messed up why dis...that's one of the best things about Uncharted is the game's AI. You can talk about anything else but I'd really keep the AI out of the conversation, the AI is amazing. Go ahead and google "uncharted drake AI", you'll see a long list of sites commending the game's AI. And it's not even the AI, it's the fluid animations that goes along with it

yanikins1113600d ago


The only reason anyone could say gears was more fun is because the enemies just stand there and cop round after round. its too easy. In uncharted the ai jumps and dodges. they actualy move like they aren't bullet sponges. which is odd because they are. Uncharted on easy plays somewhat like gears on hard. The only thing ive heard anyone say negative on uncharted is the difficulty

Marquis_de_Sade3600d ago

Is this comparison necessary?

wanderofys3600d ago

Cool, I own both of these games, I can throw out an opinion.

Gears 2 is a good game. It has good single player, and Horde is AMAZING when you're not getting kicked. The first Gears had a better story mode, though. Gears 2 is also incredibly short, and the backgrounds are bland (cave, next cave, another cave...)

Uncharted is a LONG game, and the visuals are much more attractive (not really technically better, but I prefer them). The cover system isn't quite as good in Uncharted. I agree that the enemy AI isn't quite as smart in Uncharted, but the enemies are still a lot harder to kill (and I never found myself wanting for ammo in Gears, however spend most of Uncharted wishing I had more). Uncharted has no multiplayer, so it loses points for that.

I'd say they're about equal. Uncharted has a slightly better story mode, but Gears 2 has good multiplayer where Uncharted has none.

pixelsword3600d ago

Nothing needs to be a "killer" of anything else; furthermore, if the game isn't a "killer" in the eyes of his fellow reviewers, he'll be the first whining about how it doesn't.

shovelbum3600d ago

Can these points of view get any more idiotic? Why is this shortbus-rider comparing these two games anyway? I love Uncharted (aside from all the breakdancing bad guys); it is a great gaming experience but Gears is a completely different type of fun. Why not compare LBP to Halo 3 why your at it. I just love slow news (and yes I use that word subjectively) days.

xwabbit3600d ago

How can they compare this 2 games xD. One is like Adventure and the other one is science fiction.

Maxned3599d ago (Edited 3599d ago )

Comparison Fail.

XxZxX3599d ago

WE killed HALO 3. Next stop gear of war. BE afraid XBOX 360 fanboy

Silverman3599d ago

Street Fight 4, beats then all, except maybe street fighter 3 3rd strike.

Uncharted has one of the best water graphics and its also a great game love these kinda games reminds me of indiana jones :)

PataponKnight3600d ago

I would say Uncharted has "The" best water graphics ever.

Huh3600d ago

nothing i have played can come close to the water graphics in uncharted i wish there was fishing because the water is so realistic

Kyur4ThePain3600d ago

I was very surprised the first time I looked at the water in Uncharted, and actually saw fish swimming around.

SlyGuy3600d ago

Resistance 2 water REALLY impressed me as well. Yeah it looks like crap when there are waves, but when the FISHMEN are swimming through it....WOW!

Close call for me, but Uncharted water does look more inviting!

CrippleH3600d ago

This killer thing is ridiculous.

Uncharted 2 is an Uncharted 1 killer.

Sheikh Yerbouti3599d ago

The only things a game have killed are my time and my budget.

Video didn't even kill the radio star...!

TrevorPhillips3600d ago

of course it is because its the 2nd series graphics on the 2nd one is amazing cant wait to buy it, to continue on my journey :)

panasonic233600d ago

wtf so now ever game sony release is a killer to one of ms game damn [email protected] are dumb man how the hell drake is a gears of war killer more like lara coft killer.

PataponKnight3600d ago

You said lara "coft" instead of "croft" so your comment fails.

hippo243600d ago

Im going to go crazy if there's another " game X is a game Y killer"

Im going to shoot my fricken head so damn fed up with this crap.

Name one thing that's similar to these freaking games everyone needs to shut up and leave there fanboyism at the door these games are in no way shape or form similar this is simply a flamebait topic posted to get hits, you are all simple minded and foolish if you even attempt to compare these two games.

Homicide3599d ago

I agree. This is ridiculous. Anyways, Gears sold more and had better review scores.
