Ironstar: Ever since Uncharted 2 launched -- in-fact, before it launched -- developers have been striding to achieve what Naughty Dog has accomplished. Not only did they raise the bar, Naughty Dog reinvented the bar -- and raised it.
Uncharted 2 really impressed me with their multiplayer. I am not going to lie, I didn't play the first Uncharted until after E3 2009.
same here I love UC2 multi, I'll be playing this weekend definitely because of the new lap playlist
I'd like Naughty Dog to make another Crash Bandicoot eventually. Maybe make it for PSN or something. Their Crash Bandicoots were awesome, but all of the new Crash games for PS3/360/Wii made by other devs SUCK!
I loved the co-op modes in Uncharted 2.
I LOVE!! they are still uber awesome
We bought a 120Hz 1080p 46" HDTV just to test how good the graphics on Uncharted 2 is.... and boy the level of detail on anything blew us away! and the game is just 720p! But the magic of U2 is on the overall package of humor, fun, gameplay, scale, script, voice acting chemistry, engaging characters, cinematography, sound, smooth as silk animation and physics, action, MP, graphics, direction & presentation. What a magical experience!
The multiplayer was to dull and slow for me, it just seemed to generic and nothing that really stood out from other 3rd person online shooters.
Nothing stood out? You mean like being able to climb/vertical gameplay? Is that what all the other 3rd person online shooters do? I think not. Anyway. I've quit it because that 'Syncing Live Data' thing for me is just frozen and won't progress. No matter how many times I try, it just takes way too long. It's ok. I spent a good deal of time with it and I was about to move on anyway. Good MP that needs a little more work to be great. Great first time MP for ND.
I disagree there were a lot of unique elements in Uncharted 2's multiplayer...
yeah sure, keep telling yourself that. you don't have to be ignorant about game design aspects of a game just because you didn't enjoy it.
i disagree. i've been playing alot of RDR online and you realise that UC2 takes the cake in terms of fluid controls and polished mechanics. Other third person shooters online aren't as good in that fashion.
wonder what UC2 would have looked like if they went for a more realistic look instead of the "cartoony" look. Not downplaying how amazing the graphics are, cause they're top notch, just saying it has that something that sets it apart from how Rage looks.
@ jaces i also wonder how uncharted will be with realistic look and how it would effect it's gameplay and i think rage looks good because of its rocky mountain setting , because i was play mw2 and i compared some rocks with rage i saw no differences in the quality
they dont change the graphics to a much more realistic look... i love the artstyle.
Rage looks cartoony also.
what I'm saying is there's that one bit of difference between the two that I can't quite put my finger on, cartoony is the only way I can describe it. Rage actually looks 10x more realistic than UC2...didn't say it looked better but it had that feel to it like oh wow this place could exist.
looks way more realistic than Rage. Rage has nice textures like U2 but the art style still looks cartoony.
Uncharted 2 is my favorite game ever.
I won't go that far but it was an excellent title.
Uncharted 2 is a great game for sure, but it wasn't even my pick for Game of the Year. Demon's Souls is my favorite game of this generation so far.
Yeah, Demon's Souls was my pick of 2009. Uncharted 2 is still a great game though, and tbh, the multiplayer/online coop had me hooked. Not to mention, Uncharted 2 was my first PS3 to get a plat trophy on.
it's not possible if your developing for the other console.
Can't wait for Uncharted 3
you can't top naughty gods(gods) cause they are under sony which always makes sure their first party studios deliver the highest quality gaming a console can have.
well said my friend
+ bubble me up if you think I should return in UC3.
but idk how if you're dead
you become a zombie... i dont see you coming back ... unfortunately T_T .... my favourite villian of all time ! :(
Well at least you weren't pummeled by near immortals tribesmen. But you were probably ripped apart by horde zombies.
everybody and their momma.....wants to top and outdo sony and their developers.and that's just the truth.not my personal opinion.it's... PURE MUTHERF#CKING FACT. i remember when i used to avoid most of sony's games like the plague.but i congratulate sony on the YEARS of INVESTMENT.it definitely has paid off.my first tastes of sony goodness was games like GT1 and syphon filter.syphon filter surprised me because if it said 989 on the package,i packed up my sh!t and left the building.but that game was an amazing opposite to metal gear and tenchu 1 that i got at the same time. you don't hear devs talking about beating nintendo or beating EA or ubisoft or square anymore.it's "can we match and outdo what sony has brought this gen. and before and PC fan comes running up in here saying,"bu..bu...but CRISIS."what sony's devs have done with a closed system is amazing.i will say this: if sony's devs had the open ended nature of the PC,where the sky is the limit on the latest graphics cards,sony's devs would have destroyed any thoughts on who has the best graphics and gameplay.killzone2 or GT5 would have leveled the field with a hydrogen bomb. seriously.you got top PC devs trying to match sony devs.not just naughty dog.ALL OF THEM.sony said "next gen doesn't start until they said so."and you got everybody trying to catch up. totally amazing what sony's teams have done to the industry.
I may sound like a fanboy.. but seriously.. i spend most of my gaming time on my ps3. i built my pc for gaming... but i hardly play games on it... if you want proof.. i'll give you a screenshot of my PC running crysis...
that's bcos pc has not receive too much attention from developers lately. i wonder why you are here sounding like a potential fanboy (you said it yourself).......MAYBE because ps3 has no games to play ?....hahaha oh ya, i admit i'm a 360 fanboy (nothing to be ashamed of)and yes, xbox 360 has no good new games to play lately as well.
Interesting comment. I believe there is a drought as well. Sequels and @#%$$% FPS' which are the same game with different textures and sound effects. If this trend continues, PSN and XBLA games will become more prominent. If that happens, then, PS+ might have the upperhand. FPS has killed game creativity. UC2 was a breath of fresh air.
I agree but you come off as a real obvious fanboy. Your support is a little too thick, man. Just a games console.
UC 2 is a great game for mom, dad and the kids. It should of came out on the Wii, that's it's demographic. Fan boys always get upset with the FACTS. UC is nowhere near the elites of the gaming world and that's the way it should be. I have UC2, played UC2...it was fun in a sponge bob kinda way. Indiana Drake and the lost cause does nothing original. The story is as old as Hollywood itself. Platforming stolen from Prince of Persia. Terrible gunplay mechanic. AI that is robotic and brainless. Cover System stolen from the AWESOME Gears franchise. The set piece graphics are all pre-rendered. Silly Helicopter boss battles. The entire snow level was embarrassing. The Demon Yeti was a joke. The driving sequence was nice...for PS2. That whole sequence with the villager up in the mountain was laugh out loud dumb...the guy kept talking in a different language and Drake was like HUH...lol What about all the collision detection problems, not to mention freezing and game ending bugs like the one outside the hotel in the sand bags. C'mon guys, you like your game...fine...best ever in any category...in your pre-rendered dreams. This game here does more in 3 minutes than UC did in it's entire lifespan...all in game...in real time. I would love to see ND or Guerrilla attempt to recreate this DEMO...lol. Watch when Cliff sticks a grenade ( 1:47 ) in the locust head and kicks him towards the Boomer...As HHG would say...IT's OvA...that shiit was crazy right there YO...
You make good points about UC2, especially the AI. That was its biggest weakness. But the execution and production values were a cut above. No game is perfect and Gears is no different. Basically the same game with new models and maps. Not only that, the voice acting gets worse with each release. Gears 1 was top notch and it has declined since. The voice acting in the clip you posted is horrid. I'm looking forward to Gears 3 but I won't finish it if the voice acting is that horrid throughout. I just won't do it. But I guess when you have a dedicated fan base you can let things like script and voice acting go second rate.
Two things, Ice-Ts character will improve the acting and did I see Gears 3 steal RE5's equipment sharing/thank you implementation?
It's hard to disagree with you there.
even if they did not enjoy the game, on a technical level naughty dog has raised the bar.
can anybody dont like Uncharted series.. really.
yeah, i only watched my bro play the first one, but i loved everything about the second one. once i move and get a better internet connection, i'll be playing u2 mp non-stop lol
I would love to play Uncharted 2 but people need to keep it in perspective it's an amazing action game, not the worlds greatest game. What I mean is that it isn't a better RTS than Starcraft 2 or better class based shooter than Team Fortress 2. Just the best action shooter.
Well said. +bubs
While u2 has poor aa it took me untill i reached the temple before i was really impressed the giant dagger looks sweet there is some nice textures and some awfull flat ones but im finally starting to enjoy it i dont normally like tomb raider style games u2 has changed my opinion.
all i heard what developers want to top uncharted 2/ naughty dog is graphics,graphics and graphics only. WTF is he talking about.....gameplay, story, innovation (oh wait UC2 does not have this one). is this even worthy of a news ?
Naughty Dawg :P
