Uncharted 2 is a beautiful game. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was also a beautiful game. It's amazing to see the graphical increase Naughty Dog was able to pull off, though.
Now, this is what I call real sequel improvement, even though Uncharted looks great. That says a lot about ND's hard work.
no loading great graphics excellent cinematics and animations NOW I WANT MAXED OUT GAMEPLAY AND INNOVATION MORE LITTLE BIG PLANETS AND HAVE PEOPLE STOP WORRYING ABOUT GRAPHICS EDIT: by the way i think uncharted has awesome gameplay
It's extremely impressive indeed. I just can't believe how much ND improved the graphics. They deserve every bit of success they get. Certainly one of the best devs, if not the best this gen.
I didnt like the first uncharted that much. The sequel looks to be more impressive and will buy for the graphics alone.
never by for graphics alone did that with killzone 2 and i was dissappointed with it although a good game
Why is KZ2 dissapointing to you?.
Kanye west jumps in: But Halo had the best graphics of all time, best graphics of all time
Kiko's reaction after seeing the screenshots: :o
i dont know i just found the story really repetitive they had you doing the same things over again run here shoot these guys, go there kill these dudes and for me there was no wow factor like that EPIC GAMING MOMENT like the final cutscene in MGS4 or when you snipe the guys arm off in COD4. ... and i have put 90 hours into the multiplayer and unlocked everything so im pretty bored with it now @SAAKING- very true but idk i was just expecting more from it, i had unbelievably high expectations for the game Add me: YoungKiller25 and lets play the Uncharted 2 beta
this is what you call pushing the bar in a sequel. (not just graphics) that's what i'm talkin' about. In Naughty Dog I Trust October 13th is taking too long to git it's ass here
@young killer Most FPS are the same though. Go here, kill bad guys, go there and kill bad guys again etc. . It's the multiplayer that pays off though.
my only complaint about kz2 was it was 2 short, there was enough content but the story was a bit short. First one felt longer maybe I am wrong. Its a good sign tho cos makes u want another one.
Sad that Gears2 was compared to Uncharted 1, huh? Anybody have that link?
Sort of agree. The script in KZ2 is piss poor that is true. I was looking forward to gunning down some helgast when i got onto the jeep but it ended up being just a cutscene. Perhaps there should have been more varied gameplay segments and longer too. The tank segment was too short as well as the Mech and new sun turret segment. As for wow moments there were a couple for me. Its good to know and i hope gamers like you give GG their feed back to hopefully improve KZ3. I asked them to hire new writer lol!. KZ2 is still the best FPS for me. I think the problem is people had way too high expetations for it. I don't have the beta but i will add you when i get U2.
The thing I wish GG did more with Killzone is explain the background more. I read through that fairly long article that explains the whole background, and it's actually really interesting. To be honest I really hope the next Killzone has you play as the Helghast against the ISA in the wars that happened previous to the current Killzone franchise, back when the Helghast were being oppressed by the ISA.
I have the beta you can all add my PSN ID: alphakennywun85 Haha say it a few times out loud it's pretty funny, anyways if you wanna play and I'm on let's do it up. I don't have a mic though, haha and I kinda suck trying to get used to the game.
i could see kayne west doing that he probably is an xbot anyways cuz he likes to be ignorant and piss people off by being a tool. good comparison ehhh.... made me laugh im surprised no one else has praised you for that comment.. haha on topic uncharted 2 looks amazing cant wait to show my xbot friend it and make him realize that halo doesnt even compare its just a hype built by microsoft.
The KZ universe is very detail and the story in KZ2 was like a flash in the pan which could have been so much better than most FPS game stories. I blame their writer for KZ2. The KZ story is so detail and very realistic because its inspired from early 20th European history. I hope the UCA will show up in KZ2. ISA is different from UCA. There are alos other outer colonies fractions which could come into play. We shall see.
cmbre...I am going to go ahead and disagree with the 'piss poor scripting' notion towards killzone 2... kz2 has EXCELLENT scripting imo...but i think you are not talking about actual single player scripting, and more with single player direction or something...the AI and scripting of kz2's single player were some of the best to date in an fps...checkpoints were placed in fair positions (give or take the last 2 sections or so on Elite)...but compared to something like the cod series, there was not one place where you had to reach some arbitrary line on the map before countless waves of enemies doing the EXACT same thing every time would appear... that is what I am talking about...there still were lines needing to be crossed to turn off enemy spawns...but the AI was so good it was very difficult to notice them, each spawn of enemies would run to different locations, and would be different enemies entirely (some shock troopers would sprint at you, some rocketeers would stay back, etc...)... but I agree otherwise...a little more depth in terms of vehicle fights or something would have been appreciated...GG seemed to focus on some mini boss battles more than 'levels in a vehicle'...there were a few changes of pace, but nothing major (only one level being completely built around a vehicle, and it was extremely short and almost impossible to die in)...
playing the first uncharted on crushing right now...that platinum better be worth it!
I meant the story/dialog script lol!. Definately not the A.I. The A.I is the most brutal in any FPS i played before and i absolutely completely loved it. My only wish it could have been a bit harder to near impposible on elite.
The character models have seen a minor improvement (pretty hard to improve much over U:DF) but wow, the backgrounds have SO MUCH more atmosphere and feeling in Uncharted 2.
"The character models have seen a minor improvement" You cant base that off these small screens. Just watch Uncharted 2 on a big HDTV. You can see the wrinkles in Drake's eyes! F'in wrinkles man.
I'm not saying they are BAD. Uncharted 1 had excellent character models and excellent locations. Uncharted 2 has excellent character models and INSANE locations/backgrounds.
What GG needs for their next game in the KZ universe is a new name. Do you really think Killzone is a name that sells itself? It's not imaginative and doesn't seem to make me want to look into it when seeing the word in a marketing ad. Killzone Killswitch.... I suppose it's the word "kill" doesn't ring a fine tune in your average daily consumer that's out looking for a game to get for their kids i.e. moms and dads. Edit: On a side note, seems that Matt Furtado is trying to redeem himself. Also, if Sony keeps it up and pushes Uncharted, it may very well be its own "Indiana Jones" and Nathan Drake could become Sony's mascot. Since, well... Sony seems to be lacking a mascot to define itself. Nintendo got Mario. Microsoft got Master Chief. What is Sony's defining mascot?
"IT ONLY DOSE EVERYTHING"
The light shining through the trees in the jungle -- Fantastic. Naughty Dog you deserve a big pat on the back. My way of thanks for your hard efforts will be a day one purchase.
yeah, the light casting through leaves really wowed me for my next-gen experience same with the water and how Drake got wet and dried off little touches like that really impress me
Uncharted 1, a 2007 game looks far and beyond what any 360 game can do. Uncharted 2 is just miles ahead of 360 games that it's not even funny. ND rule!
every time you post.
"And METAL GEAR SOLID 4 WILL COME TO THE 360 CONFIRMED!!!"
I could tell from the screen shots we have seen before that Uncharted 2 looked better than the first. However seeing the games side by side like that just blows my mind. Uncharted was definitely a beautiful outstanding game. But damn ND really pushed themselves this time around.
then there truly is no santa claus.
and it seem that games don't have to dumb down Graphic for the multi player it also great to see devs really making great games on the ps3
http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... http://www.n4g.com/News-377... http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...
I count 4 there
these shots that they show in this article, its pretty hard to tell a huge different, that 3rd link to Neo, that one show huge improvements over the character and the enviroment. all of it all around.
ND really knows how to make a sequel
Sony Devs ain't gonna stop improving their games. Unlike some devs that are just too damn busy milking their games instead of improving it.
hey, can't blame lazy devs for using the SAME engine for years and years...why make improvements if you can sell =D Its pure marketing man, do as little work for as much money =) Sony however is a little beyond that, they rather innovate than push sales alone...ah well, unlucky PS3 owners eh =/ we just get the most innovative top end quality gaming...everyone else gets, well... TEH SALEZ!!!....
Screenshots are not justified. We need larger screenshots compared side-by-side instead of scrolling down.
and i know it's even better in motion. Cant wait for this one... Day 1 purchase... Thank you ND !
the pics they used don't do the first uncharted justice at all they're not even HD it looks like someone just took a picture of their tv with a cheap digital camera. Uncharted 2 does look spectacular though and a massive improvement on the first's already excellent graphics.
meh no improvements its obvious bs3 reached it limits with unfarted 1
I'm guessing 10 years old and in serious need of attention. At least I hope that is the case or wow, just wow.
I wouldn't have believed you if you told me Uncharted 2 would look substantially better than Uncharted 1 2 years ago.
Very nice pics, but is very hard to compare them in these shots. They look too close in comparision, IMO.
its Unrivaled 2: Among ITSELF by Naughty Gods "it only does eveything"
to see how great the game looks. If anyone thinks that the game isn't graphically impressive you need to either 1.) Get your eyes checked or 2.) See a shrink, because you're in denial. Naughty Dog deserves all the praise and awards they got at this years E3. Here's hoping Sony gets the marketing right for this game.
To be truly honest yea its better but stop saying omg I cant believe how much ND improved cause its not that that much of a difference. Hey I might be wrong..dead wrong but im just saying just from these pictures
I'd say reserve your judgment until you've actually seen it in action. Because those comparison shots don't do the game justice.
ya its hard to tell from these http://www.neogaf.com/forum... just the very first comparison show how much it has changed. lol im sorry but that 2nd pic looks like drake could be on something. but anyway those shot are better.
Those images aren't worthy of a comparison. Can't really tell that much of a difference. The first Uncharted 1 picture looks just as great as the rest. Although the sequel does look better when seeing gameplay videos, the first one still holds its ground against it.
what i like about uncharted is the gfx are just the icing of uncharted, the actual cake is the gameplay hard to believe but its true.
It looks better than the first.
Yo Uncharted 2, I'm really happy for you. I'mma let you finish, but Killzone 2 had one of the best graphics of all time. /sarcasm lol I just had to. XD Uncharted looks AMAZING!
hey man, i still get chills from the playing KZ2 sometimes...not even just the graphics! its all the engines, physics, texture, wind....over all its just orgasmic!! Still i def expect ND to push the bar just that much higher!!! =D
Naughty gods thank you for making the most kick ass game this gen!
Like I have said many times before, Uncharted 2 makes all 360 exclusives look like legoman.
nintendo graffix?? who cares?? just slap the name "halo" on it, it will still sell millions
George Sears the first pic is not for uncharted 1 but uncharted 2, there is a huge difference between the two, or are you saying the first uncharted 1 pic looks just as good as the rest? i dont know, but either way you are wrong and should look again.
UC2, best looking game to date and the beta is amazing.
Uncharted 2 is looking Amazing compare to Uncharted 1 Naughty Dog is really pushing the Graphics and gameplay higher then before with this game compare to the first one.
Uncharted 2 really shows what Sony's PlayStation 3 have to offer with real next-generation games that look awesome compare to 360 games, PS3 games try harder to reinvent them self instead of just making the same game over and over again like 360's Halo series and Gears of war series also.
Uncharted 2 makes the first Uncharted look bad graphically and thats saying something cuz Uncharted 1 has great graphics
away the competition. These devs are just plain wicked this gen. Uncharted is one of my gems for the ps3 and I have no doubt uncharted 2 will be a gem as well. I still want to know why he's dieing in the first teaser trailer they showed.
B-B-B-B-BUT TEH CGI!!!
