From Gametrailers: "This week on GTTV Geoff Keighley goes behind the scenes with Naughty Dog in Santa Monica and shows you a never-before-seen level called Ice Cave from Uncharted 2."
I just bought Uncharted and it is an AMAZING game. Not particularly speaking on the gameplay solely, which is amazing btw, but the script, voice acting and story is just SO well done and you don't see that in alot of games now adays where you actually enjoy the cutscenes and hearing the interaction between characters and even parts where you can LAUGH. This is the second PS3 exclusive title that I've really been excited about since Killzone 2's announcement (which was my only reason I wanted and bought a PS3 for since the original trailer...and it really let me down -_-) .I'm stoked for Uncharted 2 though, can't wait.
well said. Uncharted is a hell of an experience.
kz2 let you down?....talk about high standards.
GOTY all that needs to be said not sure i want to watch the level though i've already seen too much! gonna be hard to resist however
...as does the band. @chrisnick Not high standards. The E3 2005 trailer was awesome especially the explosions, rocket trails, use of vehicles and action. GG did a good job with KZ2 but could have/should have included all the aforementioned - especially usable vehicles(jeeps and shooting from the Intruder) - to satisfy the fans of the trailer. Imagine what KZ2's story, acting, characters, action, graphics had been like had Naughty Dog made it. Just imagine! Wow would be an understatement if U1 & U2 are anything to go by.
Not really high standards. I'll be honest and just simply say if it wasn't for Killzone 2's graphics, solely based on that factor alone alot of the reviews would have been lower as it was just a average shooting game to me honestly. Not saying Killzone 2 was bad in anyway, just didn't come with that impact that it should have. I beat the game in 5 hours (yeah on easy >_>) and got my scout badge and since then never touched the game again; even thinking about selling it. But we aren't talking about Killzone 2 so anyway.
is there an OFFICIAL release date? I know it'll be sept/oct but is there an official date? seems like this would be a perfect time to announce it if they haven't @below hmm my bad i just figured since the last one was sept. right?
I thought the release month was actually November.
There's plenty of great games coming out this year, but I think Uncharted 2 has sealed the deal on GOTY. I mean if it isn't Uncharted 2 then I want to know what game it is, because I'll play that instantly lol. As for the Killzone 2 comments. I myself was so hyped up for it, and maybe that's what killed it for me. I played it for 2 weeks nonstop and then there was just no more reason to put it back in my tray anymore. It quickly lost its intensity. Amazing game, and I still think it nets itself a 9/10, but for whatever reason I could not get addicted to its online. It's a shame, because I bought my PS3 for Killzone 2 as well, and while I wasn't by any means disappointed... I just thought I wouldn't need or want another shooter in a long time. Still a game everyone should play to make their HDTV bust a nut though. :D
Wow that is EXACTLY my feelings toward Killzone 2 as well, EXACT.
I just recently began playing the multiplayer and I'm pretty addicted... I got it first day, I beat it on normal, I enjoyed every minute of it...but I didnt get hooked. I played the online once or twice, but I couldn't get into it. The funny thing is...my brother came by for the weekend and he played through it, and I sort of got the urge to play again and I started playing hardcore mode. I was getting pretty good at playing now, aiming without the sights, doing rather well...so i was inspired to play the online. I was really impressed by how much more I got into the game once I actually got GOOD at it. The reason people dont play it too much is they dont get used to the control scheme and the unique way the gameplay feels compared to CoD games. Once I got used to the game on hardcore, and I felt confident playing online, the game was interesting again, haha. Give it a shot again on the hardest difficulty, and you'll probably like it again.
Uncharted is one of the best games this generation. As for Killzone 2, just didn't feel like buying it after playing the demo. It felt so dull. Maybe I should get it anyway since many people say it's so good. Then again, unlike me most of the people who love this game aren't FPS fatigued.
I personally love Killzone 2. Then again I am good at it. People tend not to like games they aren't good at. Some people also had a problem with the controls but I was among those that loved the controls right from the beginning. Now it's other games that I think have poor controls. Killzone 2's controls are fluid, accurate and weighty; a lot of other shooters now feel floaty and jerky to me. Anyway, yeah, I love Killzone 2 and play it all the time. One of the best games to come out this gen. Oh, and the graphics are insane, in case any of you didn't know ;)
to be honest i dont know why anyone would play a gmae on easy, then complain that they ran through it lmao, well its pretty obvious you will seen as its on easy aint it? in my opinion you didnt experience killzone2, you NEED to play the game on veteran, then elite to really get the most out of killzone 2, to see how the AI trys to outsmart you to feel the real struggle pushing through the lines, veteran and elite is something you wont forget anytime soon lmao, it took me alot longer than 5 hours, i think like the other guy said sometimes people who arent good at a certain game dont like it.. the multiplayer tho did have a few problems like i leveled up too quick etc, still that was minor really and i loved the online, to me tho the single player was the best shooter single player ive ever played, it was far from an average shooter.
Traveler-You're right about KZ2 controls-they're easily the best bit of the game, and the rest is excellent. The one thing they got wrong was kow towing to the COD4 fans who wanted it to be a clone of their favourite game and tweaking the controls and options for them. The controls for the beta were amazing, better than what we have now if I'm honest and noone seemed to complain about them then did they? Anyway, U2 will def be a great game, can't say GOTY but certainly it has a good shot if ND's past is anything to go by(not to mention the slinky new gamplay and sumptuous, class leading gfx we've seen so far.Even though everyone loved J&D people were, beyond me but I guess not everyone knows/remembers who made which games, kinda surprised by the first game and as a result of that and there being fewer PS3 back then the game really built via word of mouth-none of that this time as it'll be a big success from the offand the next step in what should be a VERY big deal one day. BTW, anyone else despise the way GT trail whats coming on the shows? I always forget and think Im getting to see things now!
I know what you mean, mastiffchild, about them kow towing to the COD4 fans and it is really just too bad. I agree with you that the controls were better before, although I still like the way they feel now more than a lot of shooters.
UC was amazing and UC2 looks to be even better! i'd ask what all the KZ2 bashing is about but looking at the names of those making the comments - and it becomes self-explanatory....lol for the record, KZ2 has GREAT controls, graphics, action, effects. the place GG needs to improve on is story. (KZ1 was much better in this regard) over-all, KZ is my favorite shooter this gen. (i don't count bioshock and MGS4 as just shooters).
No other title have I played through as many times as I have Uncharted. It is so addictive that I have passed up new releases to start a new campaign in Uncharted. It is just that good. Can't wait for the second one.
i think uncharted is BETTER THAN KILLZONE!!! SO YEAH YOU HATERZ HATE IT UP BOI
Blaze I agree with all the people who thinks that Uncharted is better than Killzone 2, heck it's one of the best games this gen so far. I myself loved the intensity in Killzone 2 and although it was a great game it WAS hyped too much, however your comment about taking away the graphics can be applied to any game. What would happen if you remove the storyand animation from uncharted? You would have your basic 3rd person shooter. What if you removed the gameplay from Halo? You would have a crappy game with last gen visuals. The fact is the graphics are there and you CAN'T remove it so you have to judge the games as a package. That being said if you played the game on EASY and beat it in 5 hours then you really haven't played the game yet. I urge you to go back and play it on Veteran mode. It is a much different experience and the enemy ai will make for a much different game from other shooters.
Nice, wana see this :P, about kz2... some people left the game cus it wasn't another cod4 in terms of movement(the speed in how it moves) but i find that eh, people cant get use to a lil change ? and sine they did bad they raged and quit
I was overhyped for Killzone 2 as well. I didn't really like the online but the single player was fun and worth the purchase.
i agree, you will almost always hate a game if you have a hard time playing it. something tells me everyone plays full 32 player matches when playing killzone 2 which is a big no-no and if you add in how difficult the game can be for the controls, well then of course a lot of people would be disappointed with it. i love the controls and the way the feel too, i just played cod a few days ago and i couldn't stand how weak everything felt. i felt like i was shooting paper or something, i don't know how to describe it, but in killzone, it just feels satisfying capping off a person's head with a shotgun while hearing that splash or when they fly backwards etc. i could play the skirmishes all day on killzone 2 as a matter of fact. now i'm off topic, but uncharted 2 will be great. period. just look at those cut scenes, the environments, etc etc.
Congratulations on having the opportunity to give Uncharted a go! It's an amazing game everyone needs to play. If I was to give a reason to a 360 fanboy to play just ONE ps3 game, it would be this one. I'm sure it would change their tune completely. As for ps3 fanboys, I'll think of a 360 game you need to play when it pops into my head :P And since you brought up killzone 2 :P I'll add this... Honestly I never paid any attention to Killzone 2 as I wasn't so thrilled by the first. So i had no expectations going in playing it. And I really enjoyed it. The only problem I had with single player was alot of the rooms and events and areas seemed every scripted. If I died and restarted at my checkpoint it just felt like I was repeating myself, where as some other FPS games these days tend to feel more free flowing ya know? So to me it didn't have much replay value. There was no huge explosive battles with incidents unique to the player going holy crap. But none of that matters. None of that freaking matters at all and I'll tell you why... It's multiplayer was absolutely balls to the walls amazing in my opinion, and worth the purchase alone. I still play it every few days.
Half way through the vid. you can see Elena pointing a gun at Drake. What's that about?
We'll know when it comes out, eh?
It was shown at E3. Elena pointing a gun at Drake and Chole pointing a gun at Elena... Dont remember who Drake was pointing his gun at
heres where and why it happens, maybe u missed this whole part of the gameplay videos check it out http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Cool. Thanks for the video, KnaveX. It's a lot more helpful than random disagrees. I had been sort of avoiding gameplay videos of the SP campaign so as not to ruin the game when it comes out. Didn't even know Elena had been confirmed yet.
I have always suspected that the scene where Drake and Elena are having a face-off is actually where they first meet in the game.
Wow I never seen this footage from e3... :O It just never ceases to amaze me how amazing this looks... I'm still in awe from that panoramic view of the whole town and the big mountains in the background... Most anticipated game of the year for me on the ps3.
Cannot wait to get this game in my collection.
I second that, the only other game I may be anticipating more at this point is God of War 3 and that's still a long ways off.
From what ive seen of Uncharted 2 it impresses me a lot, so much that im going to skip all of the reviews (who needs them anyway) and just buy it day one.. if u want a game thats got rich characters,tight gameplay,epic cinematic moments, lush settings, addictive platforming + the Naughty dog stamp of approval.. buy Uncharted.
The only game that matters this year is a PS3 exclusive Poor bots
I see that the phrase "Poor xbots" is getting really popular. =) Who invented it? lol
@PS3Maniac It was Angelitos,a famous Sony trooper back in the summer of 2008
wait this is coming for 360! I'm sure they will port it! wait what? no?!??! ok whatever, Xbox is gettin Halo : RROD anyway
damn str8 dawg!
I'm not watching it, you people planning on playing the game shouldn't either :)
i agree its just so HARD to resist!
I agree with you there. I managed to put together a lot of scenes just by watching the trailer and some gameplay videos. I even figured out who the guy standing over Drake in the snowstorm was. Now I won't be all as surprised when I actually play the game :(.
I'm getting to the point where it's a real dilemma whether to watch these things. This would be the fourth full level I've seen from this game (if I watched it that is). And the game is still a few months away. When do you say enough is enough? I want to know as much as I can about this game, but at the same time I want to save some of it for when I actually play the game. I want it to be fresh. But it's so tempting...
4 months is loooong time
Can't Stop until you get enough. oh yeah
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition! I'm past ready for U2 XD
A SOAD reference eh? "Question" do you like "Violent Pornography." For real though this game will uuuee and awwww.
Wow great! News of NEWS.
Uncharted is among the top three games this generation, in my opinion. It was such an amazingly fresh and fun experience, it took me totally by surprise and gripped me from beginning to end. Uncharted 2 is the game I am looking forward to most and it is so tempting to watch all the available videos, but I think I will resist and save as much of the game as possible for when I finally play it. But, maybe just a peek...
Agreed. Uncharted is definitely one of the best games this generation. It's funny because it's so underrated at times. It doesn't really grab you until you get a sense of the great story- telling, great characters, great graphics, and great varied game play. Also, the fist scene in Uncharted really does a bang up job of pulling you into the story.
Yes I've been wanting to see the Ice level because ND said they want to create the most realistic snow & ice in a video game. Cant wait!
chloe got nice ass
thats why i used her in the beta the time i was in their
I think all of you should play Uncharted right now and then watch the Uncharted 2 trailer. I did it and I was shocked to see how much Naughty Dog have improved the character models. The faces look less game-like and more realistic. If you thought Drake's hair in Uncharted looked detailed, have a look at in U2. I swear it is the most detailed and realistic hair I have ever seen in a game lol.
Especially that neck fuzz
SOOO TRUE, I was playin uncharted(just have to play on "crushing" and the platinum is mine :) ) and then when I quit I went through the UC 2 E3 trailer and it looked even better then I thought it was when I first saw it..lol, Elena has improvements and there notable, but Drake just looks fantastic, much much better than he did in the first, and he already looked fantastic in the first XD
A whole show dedicated to Uncharted 2. You won't see this happen with any game like Star Ocean 4, Ninja Blade, or Halo Wars.
Surely. Uncharted 2 is one of the biggest games of the year. It was also the overall winner of best game at E3.
Yep, Uncharted 2 is definitely seeing some major improvements, from gameplay to graphics, and every place in between.
this game does not look good at all. i dont see whats with all the hype. if u want a real action adventure shooting game go for splinter cell conviction. its coming this fall and it will only be on microsoft's xbox and vista.
or you just dont like it cause you'll never get to play it? cause mummy wont buy you a ps3, so you hype up some 3rd party game and act like its a AAA amazing exclusive even though its not that good and its on 2/3 of the major gaming platforms?(Wii dont count)
I'm guessing Aaron Greenberg didn't get the memo of Splinter Cell going multiplat on the PS3 by next year. lol
get your hater azz off of here!
mama needs to take you to a eye doctor and have your eyes examined
everybody has pc even ps3 owners has pc so its not that exclusive after all
this game does not look good at all. the first one was a gears wannabe and was nothing close to gears i dont see whats with all the hype. if u want a real action adventure shooting game go for splinter cell conviction. its coming this fall and it will only be on microsoft's xbox and vista.
The first one is a very far cry from gears, and if you go into it wanting it to be gears in a jungle you're definitely going to be disappointed. The only similarity is they both have a cover system. They were being developed at the same time, do you really think Naughty Dog saw Gears of War in their last phase of development and went "OH SH!T!!! WE NEED A COVER SYSTEM!! QUICK!!!" and crammed the mechanic and all those animations in there in the last 4 months? There's a handful of shooters before Gears that all use a cover system, but no one's gonna claim that Gears is a kill switch or winback wannabe because it's just as ridiculous as claiming Uncharted is a Gears wannabe. EDIT: and just for good measure, I'm absolutely amped for Conviction. So much so that I said the word "amped"
