TheGuardian: Planning on buying a new release this weekend? If so which one? For PS3 owners it's a no-brainer. Uncharted 2 is out and is easily the finest exclusive title yet for the format. Buy it and wonder why all PS3 games can't look this good.
It isn't even a story! If you want a true faceoff, check out Alternative Magazine Online's one here: http://alternativemagazineo...
Water or beer? :D I know that's extremely sujective to a lot of people :)
I bought Uncharted 2 tuesday and havn't been able to play it yet because of college. It's sitting under my bed right now teasing me. I could play it on my friends ps3. But i refuse to play uncharted's single player without a full hdtv and surround sound(till i at least beat it once). I know I'm spoiled but anything less seems like an injustice.
Ummmm, the caveat to this comparison is that there is only one console which allows you to play both. So...PS3 wins again. It reminds me of those "inFamous vs Prototype" arguments earlier this year, and then everyone realized at once "Wait a minute. PS3 owners can play BOTH. PS3 wins."
96 or 84? LOL.
Well I chose both, AND Demon's Souls, and Rachet and Clank Future (soon). Toysrus buy 2 get 1 free for the win!!!!! @Tony P Are you serious? 97% on Metacritic. Praise from everyone and not one single negative review to be found. Everyone in the industry going gaga over it and you need to see how much your friends like it first? How about trying it and seeing how YOU like it cause you will be playing it, not your "friends".
Zero interest in Brütal Legend. Some interest in Uncharted 2, but I'll probably wait and see how my friend likes it.
@Tony P - Think about how possibly awesome any game could be. You got that in your mind? Now multiply by 1000, and it is what Uncharted 2 is like. You're friend will be singing it's praises when he gets the game.
i picked up Uncharted 2 yesterday and it's hands down amazing. Gamestop is running a trade in special though where you can trade in 2 games off of a list they have and get Brutal Legend or Need For Speed Shift for 20 bucks. going back this weekend and getting NFS Shift lol. here it is... http://www.gamestop.com/gs/...
You hide videogames under your bed too?
but really, i wish all games looks as good as UC2. Especially those mountain levels,absolutely jaw-dropping! o.0
But Uncharted 2 is way up there on my favorite of all time list.
I would still pick Uncharted 2. Demon Souls sounds promising but I'm unable to try it since it is sold and rented out everywhere in NYC. Brutal Legend does not even come close to the quality of these two games. Trust me.
@bpac I just beat Uncharted 2 and replayed it on the same difficulty. It gives you the option to take the next gen filter off, and I must say, the game still looks better then 90% of the games even without the HD. Your doing yourself a big unjustice by not playing it just because it wont be in HD. The game really is bad ass and fun.
@nycredude: I don't see what's wrong with researching. Or seeking the one opinion of the guy I grew up playing games with. I wish ND had had a SP demo. I'd have made that choice already. @gaffyh: I don't doubt it looks amazing, man. What can I say though? I have eclectic tastes. High scores say this much: I won't hate it.
"Some interest in Uncharted 2, but I'll probably wait and see how my friend likes it. " Hey your friends said that jumping off a 30 story building is fun, now that they approved you should do the same. And by now I thought people would try to think for themselves. If the entire gaming internet media and gaming community is going gaga over Uncharted 2, all you have is "some interest." I rest my case.
@1.15 - I'm not talking about the looks of the game :), just wait until you get your friends view on it.
@Sarcasm: Researching =/= slave to opinions. Getting a friend's opinion is no different from reading a review or chasing scores. And it shouldn't need to be said, but high scores don't necessitate an automatic orgasm. Not in my case at least. "And by now I thought people would try to think for themselves. If the entire gaming internet media and gaming community is going gaga over Uncharted 2, all you have is "some interest." I hope that's that famous sarcasm. Do I really have to point out the irony?
I was about to get Brutal Legend instead of Uncharted 2 (I have a PS3 :D), but I caved and got both with the Toys R Us deal.
@1.19 how many times is uncharted 2 better than brutal legneds?
This is stupid!! Uncharted 2 obviously, if you own only a 360, you got no other choice but get Brutal Legend.
exactly , these comparisons (a ps3 exclusive vs. a multi) are geared towards xbox fanboys so that they don't feel left out. some media worked their ass off to show that having prototype is enough and you don't need infamous. probably same thing is happening with U2 vs BL and will probably happen with God of War 3 vs. Danete's Inferno notices that for ps3 onwers don't need that comparison because they will get the better game. but xbox fanboys need it.
diamond or cubic zirconia
Or Gold or Silver
If you have a bacterial problem or dirty water in a desert,silver
Uncharted for sure. Brutal legend and Demons Souls are both $70 whereas Uncharted is only $60 here in Canada.
I was shocked when I went to pick up Uncharted 2 that it was only $60. Nice surprise.
After literally one minute on U2.....i had to pick my jaw up! Staggeringly beautiful! And im ONLY at the part where im hanging from the train!!!! The texture detail is just insane, especially the mountains, coupled with the depth of field, i can`t recall an opening quite as stunning as this! Back to it!
Yeah, this shouldn't really be in the 360 section... I'm short on cash at the moment but I traded in a few games and Uncharted2 cost me £2 in the end. I never usually trade games in but I HAD to have Uncharted2. It was either games or a kidney and it gave me a chance to streamline my PS3 collection anyway. But now I'm sat here at work and Drake is staring at me. God I wanna be at home =/
Count your blessings!At least you'll get some work done, keep your job and be able to play as much as you want in the future(aswell as when you get home today, natch)on your wages. I work fromhome(kinds) and the temptation has been too much for me-Drake has stopped work for the day and deadlines are rushing up behind my gaming back! Yeah, I can roll out of bed when I like as long as the stuff gets done on time but with my lack of ANY willpower I often wonder if a work-camp would have been a better option for slackers like myself. Certainly I'd feel safer with a worklace and a boss telling me off at times like this when I feel EXACTLY like I'm wagging school! OT-I'm playing Uncharted2 today and til I finish the story, then I'll do the story for BL, see what it's MP is like and then settle back into the U2 MP(which I KNOW rocks)intil either my DS import shows up OR ACIT lands so despite me not bying MW2(for the obvious UK dwelling reasons)my work is still in grave peril over the next few weeks.
Haha, the thing is. I'm sat here at work covering for someone else who is off sick (they don't own a PS3 or otherwise I'd have my suspisions why they are off! =) ) There is nothing to do. My N4G post count is rising like never before and Drake is still staring at me. I played the MP beta and although I'm not a big online player, I had a blast once I got the mechanics down. I'm actually looking forward to taking this one online. DS = Demons Soul? I'm Jealous =p I'm in the UK too so will have to import as well but having just bought NGS2 and now scraping together money for U2, Demons Soul will have to wait (not that I'd have enough time to play it at the moment anyway) I'm hoping I'll get it for christmas actually. I love a good RPG at crimbo time! Especially with all that time off =) He's still staring at me =/
Demon's Souls or Uncharted 2 I chose both BUT find myself playing DS far more than U2.
I submitted a more in-depth face-off to N4G here: http://n4g.com/ps3/News-411... I wish more people had said which one they were getting (balanced) rather than just saying Uncharted 2... I know it is likely the better game, but still, Tim Schafer has made something very original and cool that should not be overlooked!
''roll's eyes'' yea this article did me alot of good such a tremendous help. its so worthless i dont know why i bothered commenting seriously
is way too easy. I got both and wished I didn't spend 60$ on this game. Go rent it or buy it when its cheaper. In the meantime go get Uncharted 2 or Demon's Souls. Uncharted 2 will give you (on normal difficulty) more of a challenge than Burtal Legends ever will. As for Demon's Souls difficulty... Good Luck!
Get the one with the better quality, story, graphics, and also one of the highest rated games this gen.
3rd highest rated ever... only zelda n gta san andreas have scored higher
He said this generation.... Ocarina of Time and San Andreas were last generation games.
Bots, STAY OUT OF THIS. Only PS3 owners get to choose, so you're not welcomed here. The 360 tag should be removed. This is ONLY for PS3 owners as 360 owners have no Choice. For them it's Brutal Legend or nothing.
I'm a 360 owner.. And I have a choice :P Infact I picked up uncharted 2 this morning, as soon as work is finished I shall start it.
Heh, bought Uncharted, Batman and Brutal Legends on the Toys'R'Us deal this past Tuesday. That's how it should be done.
Exact same three games I got on the sale. Great minds think alike. ;-)
I picked uncharted. I will def be getting Brutal in the near future, but the choice was obvious. Considering I also just bought the Crysis bundle for PC, I just don't have the time!
See I thought ahead, I bought Uncharted 2 and EB lets me bring it back within a week to get full credit. Seeing how Im not really into the multiplayer, I brought it back yesterday and got Brutal Legend pretty much for free.
Okay i already have Demon Souls and Uncharted 2 and having Brutal Legends would be a nice addition considering its an RTS to diversify my gaming library, but im saving my money for Eyepet cause my daughters been bugging me to get it.
Just shows how marketing power can adjust many people's interest.
I plan on picking up BL, but if I had to choose, ti would have to be Uncharted 2. I'm even a metal fan, but I think (IMO) Uncharted is the better game. Got it yesterday (day early thanks to play) and completed the game in one session, just over 10 hours. I literally couldn't put the pad down. What more could you ask for?
I expected a LOT from Uncharted 2. A FREAKING TON really ...and it STILL managed to impress the hell out of me. What a fantastic game! I really can't say enough great things about it!
What!? You say it's possible to play both of these great games? But how?! Proposterous!!
Damn Soda praising a Ps3 3 game!!! What is this world coming to? J/K
This sites getting alot of garbage articles passed through.
Too bad that even Brütal Legend will sell better than U2. Cause PS3tards are only good in talking in some forums.. lol
what are you doing here? you don't have this problem. the choice for you is brutal legend or nothing.otherwise there's a third option: finally buying a ps3 bundled with UNCHARTED2 and enjoy an amazing next gen game .
Can that question even be asked? Of course it's Uncharted 2 hands down. And of course we PS3 owners have a choice lol P.S Forza 3 sucks
This is just truly stupid. What will I buy: GT5 or Bioshock 2? God of War III or... Really. If you like both games, you get them both, like me. Uncharted 2 for PS3, Brutal Legend for 360. Or pick the one you want first if you can't pay them both and get the other a month later. Either way, failure article.
For example if can only get one or I have to wait a long time until my next opurtunity to get a game? A situation that is more common that we think. Many people don't buy more than 1-2 games a year and they want to make sure they make the right decision. Like me I have to make a choice between some games this holiday since I won't be able to afford nor have time to play all of them.
Ummm. I choose Demon's Souls.
The title is insulting...
I bought Uncharted 2 but not Brutal Legend...
I dont even see why this is up for debate Uncharted 2 period
xbox fanboys desperately need this debate they will also need one god of war 3 vs dante inferno, next year
Uh, cause maybe people want to play something new? My girlfriend and I both liked the first Uncharted better. Uncharted 2 was good but just more of the same. Clearly not everyone has the same tastes, don't be a douche.
I will be playing Demon's Souls. Though Uncharted 2 is fantastic and I beat it, Demon's Souls is much more addictive. I can't remember any time this generation that I went flying over 40 hours of gameplay and I have yet to get sick of it or put it down.
Completely agree. Uncharted 2 is great and all but it's just more of the same thing I've played in a million other games. I've found myself playing Demon's Souls a lot more, it's so fun and addictive and refreshing compared to the same boring crap they keep pumping out.
there are stupid articles and there are just totally stupid articles...this one excels in both
The answer = Both, if you can afford it. If you can't, then it will be based on the style of game you like. Me? I am will be picking up UC2 and BL later today. I get BL for the 360 because as I tend to get all MP on 360 for achievements. I am off next week, so I will spend that time playing these two games, borderlands too, installing W7 and tasting FM3 before going back to work
Neither. Get Demon's Souls.
As much as I love Tim Shaffer, BL is a rental. Uncharted 2 is one hell of a game.
No contest. Brutal Legend is GREAT, but Uncharted 2 is one of the best games ever made.
