Gamespot is giving us their feedback after playing new single player levels in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves:
Sounding more impressive as each day goes by. I've only played the demo of the firs but I am definitely going to pick it up in anticipation for the sequel: this game looks hellish fun and amazing!
im f'n speechless.... 2 words... HOLY SH*T http://e3.gamespot.com/imag...
If you're speechless how can you say those 2 words? LOL But seriously I agree with you. I was so excited to hear about a sequel to my all time favourite game. An judging from what I've seen so far, Uncharted 2 has well exceeded my expectations. I saw Drake's Fortune as a PERFECT game and didn't see how they could improve on it, but obviously the developers saw many ways to improve it. Good for you Naughty Dog, here's one guaranteed customer.
And I gotta say Uncharted 2 looks WAY better! ^_^ Seriously though, Crysis doesn't really look that amazing unless you use the upgraded mods.
Back to the U2 Beta then
and its sweet.
The Beta is Awesome ! I just wish they would switch the Reload button with the Throw button.Holdin L1 to aim than, pressing L2 to throw is really awkward.Would be much easier with L1+R2
I'm addicted to it. :D Then if the NGS 2 demo comes...you guys might not hear from me in a while. xDDD
Only inFAMOUS take me away from the beta. UC2 is shaping to be a masterpiece. Guys, this is off-topic I just noticed Prototype is about to be released, but no a single review thus far.
The first one was a solid experience, except for some of the cheesy hollywood dialogue and not so challenging platforming sections. If they can make the platforming challenging, like jak 1 & 2, and keep the story away from the hollywood crap, then this game might just be AAA quality Lets hope it delivers
oh bugger off for christs sake. sneaky edit: 'lets hope it delivers' - everyone is tired of you around here.
Whats your problem? Did you even read what I said, or did you look at my avatar and instantly reply?
The first game is a modern classic. Still the best PS3 exclusive, IMO. I agree about the platforming segments, however. They were quite easy, there needs to be a greater margin for error in this game I think to make it more of a real challenge, not just a device to break up the action sequences and cutscenes. I actually thought the cheesy Hollywood dialogue was great, it's certainly far and away beyond what almost any other game has managed.
I think the Hollywoodesque style is the reason why it's such a popular game. If it wasn't so over the top and Drake wasn't so charmingly cheesy it wouldn't be as fun. If they were to drop the over the top stunts and action,skin of your teeth moments and comedy cutscenes it just wouldn't be Uncharted. It would be just another takes-itself-too-seriously game. Love it or hate it,the Hollywood style of Uncharted is what makes it great.
the fact you don't think it did is why i disagreed. the first UC was one of the best games i've ever played. as a matter of fact,i still play it today. i also like the fact that the platforming isn't so frustratingly hard as to ruin the flow of the game. and "cheesy dialogue"?? ND stated, before the game came out, that they wanted the game to resemble the feel of a "hollywood movie". the cheesy part is your opinion. i disagree with that as i thought drake had some very funny (and well-written) lines in the game. mooks, you saying "lets hope it delivers" is hilarious. UC was amazing; and, with naughty dogs game-making skill..........it's guaranteed UC2 will deliver. all their games do.
yea I read what you wrote, and yuor trolling go read up same natal stuff... uncharted: drakes fortune is the best game i have played this gen <-- MGS4 sits right next to it as the best 2 games to come out this gen imo
If gears halo or mass effect is the gold standard, ill gladly take ucharted any day. You idiots always have to cry about some feature. Even though we all know 360 games have lines written for live kids, you dare try to point out uncharteds lines as a negative? Compared to what citizen kane, because its definitely not any 360 games. "meh I like it but its not unrealistically perfect so. Ill stick with gears." its such a lame argument. Uncharted is up there with any fun action movie script wise.
-MoOkS-, if you hate the PS3 so much and the exclusives...THEN STAY OUT OF PS3 ARTICLES. Thank you.
I've probably played Uncharted more times than any other game this generation and I agree that the Hollywood style is part of what made the game so much fun and replayable, but Mass Effect had great dialogue and a better story than Uncharted.
The cheesy dialogue is intentional. It's supposed to be like an Indiana Jones movie. Cheesy one-liners, big explosions, search for random artifacts, etc. Watch the movie I've linked to below and tell me that if that was done in Live Action you wouldn't immediately think Indiana Jones or similar :p Heck, the whole train scene at the end just screams Michael Bay at me :p So, asking for it to be removed would be kind of like asking for a Halo w/o space suits :p Edit: Can't get GT embed to work, so here's the link http://www.gametrailers.com...
M00ks were talking about ps3 exclusives not games like ninja blade and odst.
Uncharted is one of the best video games in history
Yep, so far this gen, Uncharted wins for me.
No sorry, it was good but nowhere near one the best games in history. Do you honestly think it's up there with - Super Mario 64 Final Fantasy 7 Chrono trigger Goldeneye 007 Ocarnia of Time Metal Gear Solid Gears of War Perfect Dark Metroid Prime Halo Combat Evolved Halo 2 Final fantasy 10 GTA 3 Halo 3 GTA Vice City Super Smash Brothers Wind Waker Resident Evil 4 Tekken 3 Gran Turismo 2 Super Mario World SoulCaliber Half Life Half Life 2 Etc. You're either a casual gamer or new to gaming, if you think Uncharted can even hang with those giants
you just listed top sellers and your own personal opinion in between. I'm pretty sure in the future the Uncharted series will go down as one of the great games to come out of playstation. And you listed 3 halos and only 1 MGS? Only Halo:CE should be there. Each MGS game actually kept the gameplay fresh. Silly boy.
"you just listed top sellers and your own personal opinion in between" Yeah, is that why all those games have rediculously high review scores? None of that is my opinion, it's the opinion of many, many gamers. "I'm pretty sure in the future the Uncharted series will go down as one of the great games to come out of playstation" I highly doubt Uncharted 1 will be considered one of the greats, maybe Uncharted 2 and 3....but that yet to be seen. "And you listed 3 halos and only 1 MGS? Only Halo:CE should be there. Each MGS game actually kept the gameplay fresh. Silly boy" I was just listing a few games that are considered the best in history. I missed plenty of other great titles, MGS4 and 3 just happened to be 2 of them. Get over yourself
all you did is list your "favorites". and as for the question you asked? yes, UC DOES belong on your list. it's as good as any game on there. edit: and you need to "get over yourself". stewgart made some valid points.
Well, if being a great game means being one of the best gaming experiences I've had then I would put it right up there with all of those-and the next one looks to be better judging by how good the beta is. So, seriously, I'd put it up as one of the best games I've played and as more enjoyable AND better looking than some you list there. This gen I don't have a big list of games I like as much or better-MGS4, Gears1, TP(I think it's an underrated Zelda), VC, COD4, KZ2 and a couple of others but not many are as good as Uncharted for pure gaming enjoyment. Maybe I've got sh1t taste but I've been gaming since the late 70's and have seen a lot come and go and would have a huge list(if I could remember them all at once-getting old sucks!)of what I consider the best games ever. Many of them wouldn't fit with yours even then but I've never really held that great sales mean a great game(or VC, Okami, SoTC et al would be crap I guess?) or that what the critics say is right(personally I do think GTA4 is a great game but how many peop;le that know about their gaming don't? It got perfect scores almost everywhere but more moans than any game I can recall). With subjective things like this you should let people decide for themselves. Uncharted was hardly a Wii Fit style casual based success and got played, mostly at first, by gamers who knew and trusted ND through J&D-people who like their games.
scores are very subjective. i loved SotC and ico, but was VERY disappointed in GTA4.(it just wasn't as fun as the previous 3 GTA games) and "fun" is how i see a game making anyones "greatest hits" list. this is why i think UC is one of the greatest games ever........it was(and still is today) loads of fun.
That is quite possibly one the of the worst list I have seen, from what I can see you didn't own a PS2...really? and you call yourself a GAMER? You have never played ICO, Shadow Of The Colossus, MGS3,etc.. And you call yourself a gamer?! HALO1,2&3?are you freaking kidding me?HALO?!Instead of Shadow of the Colossus??! I just lost all faith in gamers...
I've been gaming since the Atari 2600. I had the NES, the SNES, Playstaion, PS2, Xbox, XBOX 360 and PS3. I would consider myself a hardcore gamer through and through and I would easily say that Uncharted was one of the best games I've ever played. Now, let's look at your list of "giants": Super Mario 64 - never played it. Final Fantasy 7 - Great game but there are better FF games, namely III (or VI) Chrono trigger - Great game Goldeneye 007 - overrated Ocarnia of Time - Great game Metal Gear Solid - Great game Gears of War - Meh Perfect Dark - Never played Metroid Prime - Never played Halo Combat Evolved - OVERRATED Halo 2 - Overrated Final fantasy 10 - Good, not great. GTA 3 - Great game. Halo 3 - No GTA Vice City - Good but San Andreas and IV were better Super Smash Brothers - Absolutely ZERO interest Wind Waker - Wanted to play it but don't own a Gamecube Resident Evil 4 - Great game Tekken 3 - Fight games = Yawn Gran Turismo 2 - Great game, the only racing series I like. Super Mario World - Great game. SoulCaliber - Yawn Half Life - Great Half Life 2 -Greater So I've played and enjoyed a good portion of your list and still feel that Uncharted was one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had. So much for your theory.
I had to disagree with you only on the fact that you called Golden Eye overrated. Not to mention, it seems like the games you never really played were on the 64 (because you didn't own one) so you can't base an idea off of them.. But for some reason you played enough of 007 to come up with the opinion of it being overrated? Hmmm.... Also, Soul Caliber - Yawm??? You need to be hadukened...
The point is that he's played the majority of the list and still feels Uncharted belongs on that list. I've played these from the list: Super Mario 64 Final Fantasy 7 Chrono trigger Metal Gear Solid Gears of War Halo Combat Evolved Halo 2 Final fantasy 10 GTA 3 Halo 3 GTA Vice City Super Smash Brothers Tekken 3 Gran Turismo 2 SoulCaliber And I can say Uncharted definitely belongs... in fact it blows most of that list out of the water, except for MGS of course. ^_^
Here's what's actually worth mentioning out of your little list there (I'm narrowing some of them down to franchises for the ones that don't degrade in quality over time): Final Fantasy Grand Theft Auto Half Life Halo (ONLY combat evolved) Metal Gear Solid Metroid Prime Legend of Zelda Resident Evil Super Mario Super Smash Brothers Uncharted And yes, Uncharted belongs with the other franchises. It has superb acting, wonderful animation, amazing motion capture, fantastic dialogue and character relationships, believable adventures and settings, beautiful graphics, compelling and fun gameplay. Yeah, so it's shorter than most games...but the goal of Uncharted is to bring an intense, quality blockbuster action adventure film / game experience into your living room, and that it does quite well.
honestly this game has the most amazing graphics and level design i had ever seen!!!
http://www.youtube.com/watc... so impressive , so naughty.
This game rocks!!!
Not gonna lie, the man has some hairy arms, lol.
can i just ask have you actually played uncharted? i dont mean like had a go on a friends or anything i mean played it and completed it? cos if you dont think its up there, no infact smashes most of what you put up there then i say you must not have played it, or you just dont know an awesome game if it hit you in the face!... im 28 years old and far from a casual, i loved uncharted, as it was a new ip and i didnt know much about it i passed it up at first, but i kept hearing that it was great, sio tried it and great was a major understatement i loved every minute... cant wait for the next.
Considering he doesn't have a single PS3 game on his list of "greats", which should and would include MGS4, I'd be willing to bet that the answer to your question is "No, he hasn't played it".
off topic: @5.2 When I saw the start of your list I thought you were actually going onto something smart but when I saw: Gears of War, Halo 2 & Halo 3 I knew what was going on. Judging by your avatar I would say you own a x360 and you're happy with it. So Gow & Halo are by your opinion one of the best games of all time. This means that you're making your opinion more important then Moo7as. IMO GoW & Halo shouldn't even be on that list. On topic: Man I can't wait for Uncharted 2. I loved the first one so I'll love this even more. I'm glad they're bringing the jungle back, it was why I liked Uncharted 1 so much. Because of the setting :)
