Uncharted is known for its killer gameplay, and of course its cinematic story telling. Much like that of Metal Gear solid. Well Uncharted 2 is going to take that cinematic storytelling to a whole new level with over 90 minutes of cutscenes.
You can skip it if you don't care about the game & the story.
Well, Nathan's a great character so i'm sure they'll be entertaining and [email protected] It's in no way a bad thing in my eyes. edit: Yeah, it's definately too much for some games but it'll be fine for Uncharted because Nathan and the rest of the funky bunch are always entertaining. edit 2: Shocky, that's a [email protected] pm. haha
I'm sure they will be AMAZING, but sometimes 90 minutes is just too much and the story of Uncharted 1 was awesome.. >_>
@ ^^^ Well that's just the beauty of many ps3 exclusives. They have the production values of a hollywood blockbuster. The story is deep and the entertainment is unmatched. Not to mention the average ps3 owner is between 18 and 35. That reason alone keeps the 12yr old kids on xboxlive. Thank god the ps3 is priced for the mature aged working gamers. Edit: @ below, i don't know why he sent you that message. Maybe just friendly competition i hope. Either that or he has a thing for you lol.
Oh and the average age of a gamer is apparently early 30's. Also if the PS3 userbase is so "mature" then why do I get hate comments like this one - " 15 minutes ago | By: cahill | Block hey suck box 360 owner u would need 2 dvds to hold 90 minute cutscene even flopza 3 is on 2 discs with just 400 cars "
Hey don't blame me mate. Tell it to the anal-ist's who spoke countless times on the subject. Edit: @ Murdudolls. Umm that's not possible mate. Regardless the cutscene will part of the games actual length. It tells the story in the game thus being labled "in-game cutscenes".
cinematic games FTW.. im sick of shooters with crappy stories and 3 seconds cutscenes
Uncharted 2 = - Perfect graphics - Perfect singleplayer - Perfect online - Decent story - Now with a whole movie in it too
Well if it doesn't cut into the games actual length then fine I'm ok with that.
I loved MGS4 for the long cut scene's in fact i more than Welcomed it. im so glad they are going this route with uncharted 2 ... a great move the expand the uncharted franchise and make us care about FUTURE sequels.
I've always enjoyed Cutscenes, I get a break from some gameplay and at the same time am treated to a CGI quality scene that is funny and intriguing at the same time. It's better than what I experienced with Prototypes lack of story and cinematic cutscenes.
@Shocky Of course you feel the way you do. You're an xbox fanboy commenting in the wrong section.
cut out the gameplay from the first uncharted and put it together as a movie and it was a hell of alot better than the last indiana jones movie.
(hides on jack burtons truck) muwuhauahahaha ... NOW THAT WOULD BE A GREAT GAME!
and since it's like watching a CG movie, I say bring it on. Hopefully they make more games with a good story and long cut scenes because it really adds to the emotional involvement of what's going on in the game. Anybody who complains cut scnenes are too long should stick to quick twitch downloadable arcade games, or buy a Wii.
The game won't have cut scenes that last 90 minutes. All the cutscenes combined will last 90 minutes. For a game as good as Uncharted that's perfectly reasonable IMO especially since their story telling, animations and voice acting are so good.
90 minutes, cool stuff, Natan is a pretty funny dude, so this cut scenes should be very entertaining.
well, if it's 90 minutes spread over 12 hours of gameplay, then it may not be that intrusive.....
This is excellent news. Other devs have started to catch up to what Kojima has been doing for ages. Well this is excellent news if you are old enough to enjoy a good story and not just shoot and blow up things non stop from the start to the end of a game. This why i said before that MGS4 is a land mark title. I really do hope that devs will treat gamers with more respect like Kojima has with his MGS games.
Not sure if I should be happy or sad about this. I think the beta gives you a glimpse of how that's meant to be. There are a couple of "seamless" cutscenes in the (co-op) beta. Like when the bus crashes, you climb over that wall, and such. These are all done in game, and basically part of the game - there is no raw cut from game play to cut scene. You just realize the camera moves and takes the "view" out of your hands. But if they add that many, I am afraid that it might break the flow somewhat.
With the jaw dropping settings in the background, would anyone even want to skip the cutscenes, except when you have already completed the game once? I know I wouldnt.
Please Sony don't let this masterpiece franchise turn into MGS.
You mean don't let it turn into the 5-6 million sales, high quality gameplay and a huge user base? Wow sony don't you even dare to bring out another AAA game or you'll piss I_am_rushin off.
lol comeon people. its not like its a 90 minute long cutscene, its just 90 minutes spread through the entire game, basically telling us that its probably gonna be a pretty long game. I dont see how that is bad in any way. Besides the cutscenes in Uncharted are about as good as they can get. I'd gladly take 180 minutes of cutscenes or more if it can keep up the quality. Naughty Dog is one of the best if not the best developer in the world, and here you are questioning wether this is a good thing or not? Way to spit them in the face. I trust Naughty Dog above anyone at N4G, thats for sure (and you should too).
Oh noez, a teh movie gamez!
I'm waiting for the game to come out rather then spoiling it with this.
@wulf riding the pork chop express, hairy monster monkey style :) rattle the pillars of heaven! lol @ people talking smack about uncharted you havent played the game, seriously these games are some of the best ever made. The way they play, look, sound, entertain, uncharted deserves some serious success if you havent tried the game, do, get a ps3 and play it. Its AAA.
This is great news. me = happy
you play for 1 hour and get a 10 minute cut scene break, why is that annoying. just look at mgs4 with "20 hours of gameplay and 10 hours of video"
U crazy, i love the cut scenes.
Why have you got 40 disagrees for something that is a rhetorical question? Totally bizarre. Now I'm going to say regarding the top the 90 minutes of cut scenes is one minute longer than 89 and one minute less than 91. Everyone disagree with me.
This will make for an even greater story than the first one. The first one had an exceptional story but now with more cutscenes to flesh out the characters and story even more! WOW! Cannot wait to get mu grubby paws on this game.
Lmao @ Shocky. I get PM's just like that all the time. lmao "suck box" "flop box" lol "flopza 3" that's a new one. Kids these days
Both MGS4 and GTA IV had over 8 hours of cutscenes and if you asked people about them they would say 3 hours MAX, because it simply doesn't feel like 8 hours. 1.5 hours is NOT a lot and you won't even think about it in a 12+ hour game.
The gameplay will be even longer than Uncharted 1. It would make sense for there to be more/longer cutscenes. This is what a TRUE sequel should be like. ^_^ Uncharted 1 was awesome because you could unlock different skins after beating the game. You also unlock infinite ammo, usage of any gun at any time, graphics modifiers, speed up gameplay, slow down gameplay, etc. I used to wear Eddie Raja's skin, playing at double speed with infinite ammo, then slow the game down for hard shots, etc. I expect Uncharted 2 to offer even MORE features after you beat the game! >:D
really just 90 min? hell MGS4 had a 90 min. cutscene :P in other news uncharted 2 will be awesome
Cheap shot at MSG4 :)
i'm not sure but i think mgs4 was more than 90min of cut scenes
Uhm yes it had. Thats why he said MGS4 had a cutscene that was 90 minutes long. care to read much? MGS had like 8 hours of cutscenes. That was just an estimate that i made up, though. Dont know exactly.
As long as there's gameplay as well.
Oh boy, here comes the xbox knob jockeys. Might as well announce it multiplat so they can lable it the best thing ever lol (MGS:R anyone?).
yeah i luv the fanboy hipocresy.. "buh.. buh.. but teh movie" good thing after E3 the MGS franchise became "cool" again *sigh*
Exactly! the hypocrisy is mind boggling. It's amazing how much hate a game gets simply because it outlines it's story in cutscenes. To be honest with you, i love cutscenes. It gives me a rest from all the intense action that i endured previously in the earlier stages o the game.
me too.. i like games with good story..i see games as a legit form of enterteinment just like movies or books and not just like kids toys.. altough theyre games for every taste and age group
Cant wait! I love those story driven games like MGS. I hope to see more of this kind of games in the future.
As long as the gameplay is long and fulfilling inbetween this is no Biggie. Plus the voiceacting and cutscenes were great in Uncharted,this just comes across as more of a good thing. Well,I'd care more if current UK heatwave hadn't just frazzled my PS3 and I had a PS3 to play it on.
it really frazzled your PS3? it's been pretty humid up here lately. Afraid to turn my PS3 on now
It got hot earlier and I switched it off,was playing Motorstorm about 3 hours later and it got incredibly hot with all the humidity without me noticing. Frazzled it right out.
i can't wait!!!!
I love me some story telling in games, especially on the level of Uncharted's, so this is good news!
Sorry guys but Uncharted 2 will in no way be as cinematic as the masterful Gears of War 2 was. Gears of War 2 set the bar for cinematic games and I highly doubt Uncharted 2 will come close to it. Uncharted 2 will in no way be able to show the same emotion, the drama, the anxiety, the un-real acting and the heart stopping moments that Gears of War 2 did........ .....I seriously should get a medal for being able to type that with a straight face.
It's whatever you're in the mood for if I feel like watching a movie I'll pop in MGS4 if I feel like playing a game I'll pop in Gears 2.
MARIAAAA NOOOOO MARRRRRRIIIIIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA xD Honestly I loved GeoW 2 single player more than the first one, but oh man.. the "MARIAAAA" scene.. I was ROFL all over the place, and I still don't know why xD
I really REALLY wanted to take that game seriously. Unfortunately, I hit the breaking point when [SPOILER!] lalala Dom killed his wife, and I ended up laughing. I couldn't help it, it was just SO cheesy, I could almost hear Cliffy saying "emotion! HERE!! TAKE IT!!!" I decided to include 'lalala' after my spoiler warning because every time I see a spoiler warning I end up inadvertently reading the word after it and getting things/the movie Moon ruined for me.
Funny, I don't see anyone making fun or mentioning other games in here(until you brought it up). Why be a douche? Gears 2 has a decent story and it's more like a summer action flick from Michael Bay. Uncharted has a good story and sorta like a Lucas/Spielberg action flick. I think Gears has proven itself a great franchise and no need to take a sh*t on a game so you feel better about Uncharted.
GEARS 2 was a great game. It was like a summer blockbuster, and like many blockbusters, it had some cheesy parts. I think it could have done without the Dom and wife side story. Either way it was still really fun playing.
gears is totally irrelevant in this thread if uncharted is 10x better for you why even mention gears?
i wasent refering to you when i wrote the your a moron comment. ........feel stupid..... !NOW!
Hey lar. Easy fella. Madgunner has a MGS avatar. I think it's quite obvious he was refering to the guy right above him saying stupid sh!t about MGS. feel stupid. ..... NOW!!!!!!!! Plus that's my nigga u talkin to. ( BSS) come get some.
I think some of you guys are taking this a little too seriously. This reminds of a story on here where all the little fanboys jumped on my ass because I said MS could sh1t in a box and slap the name Halo on it and it would sell. People got so butt hurt over that. Even when I tried to explain that it was the same thing with Sony and GT or GOW and Nintendo and Mario or even Apple, they still thought I was calling Halo a sh1t game. Stupid fvcking people. It was an article about why ODST was full price. There is nothing wrong with poking fun at a game. Stop acting like it is, it only makes you look like an ass.
I don't mind. It helps move the story along.
I have a feeling no single cutscene will be particularly long, like, for example, the scene from MGS4 on the river where Liquid takes over the system. There are a lot of short cutscenes in Uncharted, very very very short, like a few seconds, just to give a new camera angle on something or help show something Nate's discovered, etc. The beta, for example, in co-op there were a few several-seconds cutscenes where the players moved furniture to get over barricades. Things like that, that will probably add up to be a lot. On the other hand, with the cutscene graphics looking THAT good in-engine, I don't think I'd mind sitting through a 45-minute U2 cutscene. Just like I didn't mind in MGS4. EDIT: just curious as to what part of my comment people are disagreeing with. not trying to sound stand-off-ish, just curious :-/
beyond me how naughty dog can create an amazing game like uncharted. loveable characters, great story line, outstanding graphics.with all the xtra content they adding to improve uncharted 2 its a day 1 buy for me.
Great news! Uncharted is supposed to be like your in an action movie! As long as there's at least 25x gameplay of that its fine.
I loved it when ND had cinematics between missions in the later Jak games, if anything, I'd say this is a good thing!
If there are something like 9 chapters which is probably less than what they'll have then that's just 10 mins per chapter and it will most likely be less than that because more will be in the opening and ending.
Game + Movie More for my money :)
Well I don't mind, I loved every minute of Metal Gear Solid 4(and the previous ones), so 90 minutes is nothing.
it best even out like with mgs4, if uncharted 2 has like 15 hours gameplay then this isnt a problem
