No, not good enough

I understand complaining about the camera but the snow effects not being realistic, tell me another game were you seen better snow

ToastyMcNibbles3155d ago

have to agree... when you go so far as to complain about your steps not leaving footprints in snow then you know this game is perfect lol

Simon_Brezhnev3155d ago

this is gamesdaily now we have to wait for edge

callahan093155d ago

GameDaily is a really low-brow, silly website that gets hits being controversial, and this review is a bit flawed, but it's not as bad as some of the others that have scored the game 9's... At least GameDaily is more consistent. They didn't give 10's to Halo 3 or Gears 2 either, which if they had you could argue they've got obvious double standards across the PS3 and 360 for this type of action game.

mxdan3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

Thats ridiculous. I have a hard time calling any game reviewer credible in this generation. No one reports on anything relevant to me... Would I care if the snow print doesn't leave a giant streak? NO I wouldn't. They are simply looking for something to whine about. They don't focus on the actual experience I'll have!

BulletToothtony3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

so what can u expect..

this is what they had to say:

"People are just upset because they are fanboys and I gave MGS4 and 8/10"

jammy_703155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

put it on 360 it wud of got a 10!
why do sites do this!? its f**king SAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and why is he taking a close look to put the game down???.....

MeatAbstract3155d ago

While 9/10 is a great score and no complaints about it, I agree with many of the posters above. Snow footprints, what the hell?

Its a shame games reviewers want to take themselves that seriously that they won't simply enjoy a game but critically analyze such minor details.

If you want to bash the realism of the game, why not just go all out say "AND HOW COME WHEN NATHAN GETS SHOT HE ISN'T WRITTHING AROUND ON THE FLOOR IN PAIN WITH A BULLET LOGDED IN HIS ARM!?"

C'mon Chris Buffa at least be a man and show your name. It's not like you haven't shown your unprofessional journalism before.

randomwiz3155d ago

in gametrailers, they said the camera programmer deserves an award, and the snow felt really real.

heroicjanitor3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

They started from 10 and then dug for reasons why it isn't a 10, and came up with snow prints and the camera isn't perfect? So it was impossible to get a 10. Should be an article entitled "Why Uncharted 2 isn't as perfect as everyone says it is". They didn't review the game fairly or objectively, their score was in place before they played it. Terrible site, wouldn't recommend.

Mr Logic3155d ago

A perfect score does not mean a perfect game.

It just means a game pushes boundaries and expands on good concepts and makes new ones.

RememberThe3573155d ago


I don't care what scores these guys give. They suck. PERIOD.

dreamcast3155d ago

Good score, but I can't take a reviewer seriously when he brings up metacritic at the beginning of the review. They obviously aren't confident enough to review the game without referring to what real reviewers think about it.

badz1493155d ago

talking about nitpicking, here we have the saddest out of all!! if there's anything wrong with the "game" itself thus hindering the experience, yes, I'll agree deducting some marks but for this game, they chose to deduct a point on the SNOW?? teh fvcking SNOW?? how many games have these guys reviewed and they focused on footprints?! this is just too stupid, it's mind-blowing!

twoface3155d ago

3/4 of the review is about some microscopic complaint issues and irrelevant remarks about metacritic scores. I have not been reading reviews for a long time (I usually try out demos). Can someone enlighten me if this is the sad state of reviews nowadays?

Face Palm3154d ago (Edited 3154d ago )

And that's coming from GameTrailers of all sites!

GameDaily says no snow footprints? I just played the demo a little bit ago and my character made snow footprints. That was in a MULTIPLAYER DEMO and typically the mutiplayer aspect of a game has slightly worse graphics that the single player, same thing goes for a demo vs the final game.

From the review:

"But as Nathan walks on the snow, shouldn't his feet make imprints into the ground? Instead, it just looks like the snow billows underfoot, disappearing in the classic video game manner all footprints usually disappear."

Oh my god would you like some cheese with your WHIIIIIIINNNNNEE

saint_john_paul_ii3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

yea, thats gamedaily, remember the MGS4 review? LMAO seriously, these guys just want to drop points can they have this fanboy feeling that they cannot allow a PS3 exclusive to get a perfect score.

BTW The MGS4 review, they gave it an 8. glass bottles wasnt real enough. think im lying? go to their site right now and read it.

"Uncharted 2 received so many perfect scores, is there anything it does wrong? Well, yes, there is."

Seriously, i really want to raid them so bad and spam them with poop and dead people, EA RAID STYLE!!!!!

LinuxGuru3155d ago

Poop and dead people? LOL

ultimolu3155d ago

FailDaily strikes again!

Can't attack the gameplay so we attack the snow!

*shakes head*

Morituri3155d ago

So they basically scored it lower because of all the perfect scores it HAS been getting...? How about having some integrity and scoring it according to its own merits. Very amateurish to say the least.

SnuggleBandit3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

exactly what i got out of it...his intro basically set it up that way anyways

and with no real gripes it certainly appears to have some truth to it

Bodyboarder_VGamer3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

This is the weirdest review ever. The guy's not judging the game from his perspective but from what other reviewers failed to mention before scoring the game with a perfect 10/10. In other words, he wrote a review focusing in nitpicking...

*Leaving footprints in the snow will make this game more fun?


*Then it is not relevant, just nitpicking.

GameDaily fails miserably... Again. The score was good, but the actual review was a disgrace.

Unicron3155d ago

Another poorly written review I see.

In b4 trolls saying people are "whining about UC2 not getting a perfect score."

Major_Tom3155d ago

Huh? I thought this review was very fair and unbiased and the website layout is the best, the editors at GameDaily are unmatched.

YogiBear3155d ago

Ground Control to Major Tom, your circuit's dead, there's something wrong Can you hear me, Major Tom?
