Patrick Redding, game director for Splinter Cell: Conviction, has told OXM that Ubisoft drew heavily upon the likes of Max Payne and Uncharted for Sam Fisher's latest outing.
Who wouldn't be influenced, Uncharted 2 is perfect.
Uncharted franchise is among the best gaming has to offer.
Uncharted 2 is amazing and very well deserving to be a source of inspiration. The stealth in UC2 was simple but effective and helped a lot to make the game more variated. SCC is receiving very nice scores and game is looking really fun. Definitely worth a try.
Uncharted 2 was a well crafted game! I hope alot of other developers take notes and step their game up. Especially the one who makes a game that sounds like 'Boom Hater'.
No such thing as perfect.
I wouldn't say perfect, but not very far from it.
uncharted inspired evry1 even sega wen they made the dreamcast =/
I could tell. It's greater because of it. I can't wait to pick this up. Love me some cinematic gaming!
and people say that UC2 hasnt redefined the Third Person and Action Adventure genre....good one game journalists...good one
I really liked the SC:C game mechanics (expect for the spoon feeding they did.. everything was very easy) I love the cover to cover movement. I hope we can get hand to hand combat in the retail version.. I dont like just hitting B to kill the guy.. even if he saw me already. I liked U2's combat mechanics... if he didn't see u, 1 hit kil.. otherwise combot ime!
I just saw the trailer of Conviction and it doesnt even come close to how awesome Uncharted 2 is graphically. You can also see how the textures are in Conviction compared to U2.
You can definitely see from the intro to the games. The bloke looks like sully from uncharted. All my mates pissed themselves laughing when they saw it.
Your welcome 360 ;)
All I said in my reply that was deleted below was that SC:C is a timed exclusive and that it is also coming to PS3, which is something that has become fashionable this gen. http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... I also informed mattygamefreak that instead of replying in a new thread, he could just reply to his own by clicking on the reply link in the lower right hand corner of his original post. How is any of that considered a violation of the gamer zone. I was trying to be helpful and informative, but then again this is N4G... carry on.
....Lara Croft should be saying "You're welcome, Nathan."
Tomb Raider and Uncharted have very little in common other than they are both treasure hunters. If anything, Lara Croft should thank Indiana Jones. See how easy and equally silly that can be done?
Tomb raider has a very different game play mechanic compared to Uncharted. The only common ground they share is the fact that Nathan and Lara are both treasure hunters.
Is a big reason I know this game will be tons of fun. SCC should be awesome.
Patrick Redding, game director for Splinter Cell: Conviction, has told OXM: "We paid attention to everything from Riddick to Max Payne. Obviously we took a good, heavy look at the way Uncharted works too. It's not just about production value, a lot of it is looking, at the lowest level, what the player is going to spend his time doing." AND THE RESULT WAS I MIDCORE GAME LOL. NOTES:- Uncharted 2: WON 150 AWARDS AND GAME OF THE YEAR. Splinter Cell: Conviction:WILL WIN 1 AWARD(FLOP OF THE YEAR)
That crap stealth in Uncharted 2 was ridiculous & UBI copied because the fools that rate that games talked of the greatness of U2 when it was garbage. U2 didn't pickup the dead bodies & didn't get criticized & the fools at UBI ruined my game Splinter Cell by copying that garbage because they thought it was ok! DAMN!
You must be an unfortunate Sega Saturn only owner, aren't ya?
a game like uncharted 2 will influence every single cinematic TPS game from here on out =) great news though! measn SC:C has some good influences ;)
so thats wat caused the last delay ;p
whole dev team took time off to play U2 xD
wasn't the game ready to come out around the same time MGS4 was coming out? and didn't mgs4 pretty much scare these guys into comletely scraping the game, and start over. so i'd say mgs4 and uncharted are the two reasons that splinter cell is the game it is today. and the game it is today comes nowhere close to those games. i saw a comercial for it the other day, and all i can say is it looks ugly, gameplay might be spot on. but graphix wise NOT SO MUCH.
MGS4 did scare them into scrapping the game. They scrapped it because of Assassins Creed. Because it was too close to that.
and yeah the game was delayed many many times, seems to have took alot from uncharted and bourne game. but i guess this one is different, im not a fan of it, but this game will prbably bring in new fans. eitherway most devs take from other devs and add their own little inovation to the genre i guess.
That might not have been too bad, Assassins creed like gameplay, wouldve given alot of options in assassinations/missions in SC:c
here go have a bubble up bots cant handle fact we got the best all round games of all time most diverse lineup most reliable hardware able to output graphic that set new bars best looking console most eco friendly The Slim best controller DS3 wi-fi out the box internet browser highest hdmi spec on consoles depend on what you have able to play PS1 and PS2 games that two whole generation of back catalog plus current gen games it only does everything play ps3 games enough and be able to spot flop on any system even on PS3 cause bad game not prone to just flop60 can be on ps3 too! best sound uncompressed games gow III spus ppe xdr like no other or i can just say Uncharted 2 n would be just nuff said. gimp in bots.
Of course they can't. They're too busy cumming over a five hour single campaugn game that doesn't deserve a 9.3.
I will say that the PS3 has a few good games, but best controller? lolololololol!!!!!!!!!!! I have bought controllers from dollar general that don't feel as cheap as the DS3. Btw, does it even have rumble yet?
The easiest thing to do is to follow another games mechanics. So there is less of a chance that you will fail and more of a chance you will get noticed as everyone will be comparing your game to the ones that you copied. Of course this could backfire and people could see you as simply someone who just copied of some other game with almost no innovation e.g. Dante's Inferno.
Some of you are pretty sad lol This is nothing but good news. ND did a great job and I don't see how anyone ISNT inspired by their great work. Also, INFLUENCE does NOT EQUAL COPY and no, they did not copy the stealth aspect but were probably motivated by UC2 to up their game as far as voice acting, cinematic action and animations.
Max Payne, Riddick, Uncharted, etc are great franchises, it's good to see they played as an inspiration for SC: C.
About time someone mentioned more than just Uncharted. SMFH.
^and whys that "boohoo, stop talking about this PS3 exclusive wah" UC2 deserves the praise.
LOL!! you never even held a DS3 so obvious that you learn how to lie from ms fibbing in.
you got me. just called by buddy up and found out that i was using a sixaxis while playing his ps3. maybe the ds3 is better. that sixaxis was garbage. had no weight to it and i felt like i could bend it even though my strength is gone from chemo treatments.
Uncharted got GOTY, and over 150 awards...I cant see how it cant be influencial.
I played Splinter Cell Chaos Theory with mouse and keyboard, didn't like that though. Miss holding an controller. (PC) But i love about PC games that you can change the settings and make it look prettier.
