Nowhere near as lame as this article.

You know i am not a fan of any system , but i do hate these articles that write nonsense just to get hits. I find Uncharted 2 narrative fantastic this website seems an amateur attempt to create flame wars and to get hits. I know now not to get near ever ! avoid it at all costs! D:

Here some quotes so you guys/girls can have an idea:

"God… the storyline for this is f*cking s*it isn’t it?"
"Why is it so generic?"
"it has a nothing, throwaway-like story".
"It has no story. Face it. Stop bumming the glossy finish"
"I was prepared for this barrage of insults"

This article might as well have please give me hits writing on it.

Saaking2841d ago

Lame is the last word I'd use to describe UC2.

Trebius2841d ago

Saying the storyline for Gears of War is AMAZING.

DIS ON the BEST game this gen!!!

I no longer click any of their links. Not because of this article, no not at all. But for past articles where they have already proven themselves to be an ever increasing 'wannabe part of the industry' farce.

The minute their upstart website didn't become IGN they went off the deep end. Look, they're the Jerry Springer of unknown websites.

And this article isn't just lam. It needs to be reported as Spam. If there was ever a can of Spam that was nothing but Flamebait, this is it.

Darkstorn2841d ago

Uncharted 2's story is not lame, but it's no philosophical treatise either, so you can't say it has a particularly GREAT story. It has a Hollywood blockbuster feel to it, and that's how it was meant to be - there's nothing wrong with that. UC2's story may not be DEEP, but it sure as hell is EXCITING.

morganfell2841d ago (Edited 2841d ago )


Yes and they have ground it down to the handle. Those have to be the most frustrated bunch of tweens in the world that stay up and write this tripe.

@1.4 - Because "PS3 is teh doomed" articles no longer fly.

Information Minister2841d ago

Are we so used to brain dead, testosterone induced story lines that we can no longer accept anything even slightly different?

SullyDrake2841d ago

It's just not worth the hits. N4Gers who are scrolling the comments before the jump, if you actually get to my comment, don't even hit the jump. Not worth it. You'll feel like knocking his teeth out. He's the kind of egotistical and attention-craving moron we need less of it our lives.

Instead, turn on your PS3, and enjoy the majesty that is Uncharted 2. =)

Xbox Avatars Shoe2841d ago (Edited 2841d ago )

The only thing lame in that article, was the article itself.

starvinbull2841d ago

What the writer of this article is saying is that aside from the treasure hunting bits there isn't a story.

It's like he hasn't played the game at all.

Nathan has got involved in a love triangle that forces him in every chapter to choose between his new flame and his old flame.

He meets people that help him along the way and save his life at times when you think it's all over.

At the end of the story Nathan chooses who he wants to be with and all the loose ends are tied up.

Now what I just described I think allows Uncharted 2 to be described as having more than just a get from point A to point B kind of story.

Please stop all the stupid misleading headlines.

Why does this article has to be so lame?

jmare2841d ago

The author is a moron. Uncharted has always been intended to be an homage to the classic action/adventure stories from the 30s and especially the Indiana Jones series. While I can understand his point that there is nothing "original" about the story, he loses all credibility for such a flamebait title, which he acknowledges in the first sentence. Also he loses credibility for claiming Bioshock is the pinnacle of "original" storytelling. Bioshock was good, but it wasn't original; it just hadn't been seen as often.

SL1M DADDY2841d ago

With flame bait article titles like that, who even needs to bother. Just another retard journalist wannabe trying to get his lousy web site off the ground with flame bait articles. Pathetic.

mal_tez922841d ago

The storytelling is much better than in any other game. The uncharted series has proven that the line between games and movies can be crossed, and that video game characters can have a realistic feel to them.

Uncharted is NOT lame, it's storytelling and level of character depth is what all games should strive to achieve. Drake's fortune was done beautifully and the sequel exceeded it, it has become my favourite series ever in gaming.

RAZORLAND2841d ago

I loved Gears, but that was funny.

RAZORLAND2841d ago

To a vapid gamer, this might be a turn-off. Didnt click the link, dont wanna give this shmuck traffic.

SaiyanFury2841d ago (Edited 2841d ago )

I didn't read the article as I felt the didn't deserve the hit. Lame? In exactly what way is the game lame? From it's fantastic action sequences? I'll cite dealing with the attack chopper in the Tibetan city here. For crying out loud, you're dealing with enemies with a chopper firing deadly rounds at you while you're trying to climb over ledges and get to the next rooftop. A building even collapses with you IN it, and you have to jump from it to another building through the windows. On character interaction, Chloe, Elena, and Jeff the cameraman talk to each other as you're going through the level together. Lines like, "Is it always like this with him", as enemies are constantly shooting at you, are brilliantly written and very human.

On a different topic, the graphics are extremely detailed and the DTS soundtrack is spot on and will rumble your house if you're playing the game with a home theatre. Control is first rate as well as the gun cursor follows the enemy you most recently locked onto.

That's about as far into the game as I am now. I just recently solved the huge dagger puzzle where the mouth of the statue opens for you with the mirrors. This article can claim "lame" status for Uncharted 2, but I've found everything about it lovable. From the characters, to the presentation, to the character interaction, to the action. Nothing falters. Sorry, Uncharted 2 is anything BUT lame. PlayStation: The Official Magazine called it, not just one of the best games of the year, but one of the best games of all time. I'm inclined to agree. It has a few negatives, but are far and few in between, and in no way make the game "lame". Sorry, but just the assumption that such a great game is lame, is lame in and of itself.

Why does journalism based on PS3 exclusives have to be so full of....Hate?

bjornbear2841d ago

State of video game "journalism"

Give me 1 game with such impressive narrative and voice acting, and I'll pay you.

Thought so...

MegaPowa2841d ago

and go on with your lives...if you have any.

Cenobia2841d ago

I think that makes you a hypocrite.

ID IR A G 0 N2841d ago

uc2 has bad cover controls that gears laughs at. i have no idea how many times i have tried to roll out of gunfire and stuck to a wall 5 feet away (garbage). oh yeah, and uc2 has THE WORST/DUMBEST FINAL BOSS EVER

Unending Punishment2841d ago

Saaking, you're right. It IS the last word in describing Uncharted 2.


My gosh how right you are!

TotalPS3Fanboy2841d ago

that 95% of people who thinks Uncharted 2 is lame is actually very lame themselves.

The other 5% committed suicide.

Beast_Master2841d ago (Edited 2841d ago )

Yes UC2 story is lame.. Just like... 'The Godfather' is one of the worst gangster films ever.. 'Die Hard' and 'Lethal Weapon' are crappy action films compared to 'Transformers'.. The original Saturday Night Live cast was the worst ever and no one ever made it big once they left that show.. The Mario and Zelda games are not the reason Nintendo has sold millions of consoles..Right Wingers love the gays and black people.. Bears hate honey.. Girls love it when construction workers cat call them from the site.. Child molesters hate Little Miss Beauty Pagents. Most Strippers are just trying to pay for College..

Oh maybe I just have poor taste and judgement. Maybe I tooo can be a journalist for Dualshock!!
