Could This Be an Uncharted 2 Rip Off On The Horizon

Could this game be an uncharted 2 rip off, new information has surfaced of a pc game coming out september, it is an action packed game using the technology and raw power of gaming PC’s to reproduce the level and intensity of uncharted 2 ? hmm. or is it ?

The story is too old to be commented.
FACTUAL evidence2164d ago

I don't see the rip off here TBH....just some low budget game..that's all.

Army_of_Darkness2164d ago (Edited 2164d ago )

It's like a 360 version of uncharted 2!LOL! :P

oh yes I went there;-)

Xulap2163d ago

Uncharted 2 rip-off or not, that article is freaking hilarious. And so is the cover of that new game. So many similarities! Hahaha!

GreenRingOfLife2163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

I hope this game will fix the flaws in the original two Uncharteds

can't wait to play it

Red_Orange_Juice2163d ago

trailer is at least inspired by Uncharted

IDK what the f**k is wrong with me

CaptainPunch2163d ago

@GreenRingOfLife I feel like punching you in the face for your comment, I don't understand how stupid you can possibly be.

Red_Orange_Juice2163d ago

thats the feeling, we all get, we just have to...

Ahhhhhh Green ring you do make i laugh!

How about you go play with your pink ring for a while!! :0 :)

Leio2163d ago

@greenringoflife
Every fanboy has the right to be stupid. But you're abusing that privilege :/

Hideo_Kojima2163d ago

it is a huge rip off even the plane the trailer starts with looks just like the plane you start off in Uncharted 1.

Kurt Russell2163d ago

It doesn't look like a rip off to me... The trailer looks a completely different game to me.

And as for the character similarities... Uncharted doesn't have the most all inspiring original cast. It's a bloke in a leather jacket of a particular era - Hell Biggles used to wear one and is far more famous :/

King_many_layers2163d ago

So many of you seem to fall straight into what Green ring was doing.

It's clearly just an account made up by somebody whose stirring up the website by saying comments that are negative in any way, but in a way that is clearly nonsensical and humorous.

A Cupcake for Gabe2163d ago

This looks horrible as hell, but it's nice to see inspiration spreads...Like CREATE from EA.

shadow27972163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

It's based on a book written in 1933, so it can't be a rip-off of Uncharted. Inspired by? Maybe. Uncharted 2 could have inspired them to make a game based on the original story of Shangri La (Shambala).

But let's not pretend Naughty Dog wasn't inspired by Lost Horizon, too.

In fact, George Lucas probably got inspiration for Indiana Jones from Lost Horizon, whether directly or indirectly, I don't know, but Indiana Jones was definitely based on the action/adventure serial movie genre from the 30's, so it's very possible.

HSx92163d ago

why are these articles getting 930 degrees? it's just someone's narrow close minded opinion about a game that may have similar characters, but they have no relations to each other.

ULTRA HILARIOUS!. LMAO.

I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Rainstorm812163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

"it is an action packed game using the technology and raw power of gaming PC’s to reproduce the level and intensity of uncharted 2..."

Really? This game in the trailer, in looks like it has the mark of kri graphics engine, and is set for release on Xbox 1.......Why is it being compared to Uncharted 2?

I know U2 set a pretty high bar but lets not co,pare every piece of trash to it that looks a lil bit similar.......thats just getting hopes too high.

pixelsword2163d ago

The game doesn't look all that great at all; if they can copy a great game and get success, let them.

All games get inspiration from something else.

karl2163d ago

i actually thought some of the moments from the trailer were really cool

to bad the graphics suck...

bjornbear2163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

i think they confused blond chick for Chloe and azn chick for Elena, since Chloe was the bad ass (like blond chick in cover) and vice versa for azn chick.

still, game looks very uncharted inspired. YES uncharted was inspired by various pervious elements BUT it was the first game to make these elements work so perfectly in a game.

this game seems to be inspired by that "formula", or else, why didn't we see this game (or a game like this) before uncharted?

then again, game looks good actually. a bit extra cartoony, and no gameplay (seems to be all inengine though) but it doesn't look BAD, just low budget , but so was FallOut 1 and that was AWESOME

pork_chop_express2163d ago

where is 8800gtx to talk about the incredibles of the graphics it makes crysis and uncharted look like claymation its the pc superiorz.

chazjamie2163d ago

i been waiting for that.

avengers19782163d ago

I highly doubt it will be to the standard of Uncharted series, and of course people are going to rip-off one of the most award winning games of all time.

JsonHenry2163d ago

This game looks like an old Lucas Arts games from the early to mid 90s! Awesome!!!

frostypants2163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

Wow. Doesn't even look as good as Uncharted 1. It's clearly a ripoff, but it actually looks lower quality in every conceivable way. The hero looks like a bit of a toolbag.

GuruStarr782163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

Wow! looking at the replies above to GRoL: You guys get stirred up WAAYYYY too easily!

number472163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

This looks like it has nothing to do with Uncharted. Just the characters could be called similar.. by a bigot...

looks like a old action/indiana jones thing.

Whatever1234562163d ago

Little Big Planet would spit in your face should it have cought u saying that ^-^

KILL-ALL-CURE2163d ago

This game is all cartoonish and gay.

Why are they drowning Chun Li?

pixelsword2163d ago

Because she's Interpol.

:D

dgroundwater2163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

If you watched the trailer and read to the comments you would know that Lost Horizon's inspiration is much older than Uncharted 1 or 2

"Uncharted is just a huge cliche and just like any adventure film, it’s a carbon copy of the “Lost Horizon” novel by James Hilton :)

did you guys even know that this IP is actually a novel released in the 1930s or even way before? Sorry can’t remember correctly :) When playing Uncharted I always thought that Lost Horizon was a huge inspiration for the series so the rip-off should be the other way round."

Same goes for kids today who would say Mass Effect is an original sci fi story. Anyone who saw a couple Star Treks knows that this isn't the case. Almost all modern media borrows heavily from decades past.

Zinc2163d ago

Holy shit... and I thought I've seen just about every animal on these forums. But, Reason... well... that animal just grew teeth for me.

It's "Tenzin" not "Tensen". >.<

Also, how can this be a rip off of Uncharted 2, if Uncharted 2 was a "rip off" of various elements from movies and games?

Ares84PS32164d ago

That was abble to combine the greatest things of any action/adventure game before it and elevate it and make it much better. Present it in a way that wasn't done before.

On the other hand this (Lost Horizon) is a straight rip-off of a single game that doesn't even make an effort to hide it.

il-mouzer2163d ago

it's the other way round :)

Lost Horizon is an old novel which inspired many action adventure novels, films and games. I'm sure Uncharted was one of them.

ChronoJoe2164d ago

If you watch the trailer there are a lot of environmental similarities.

Specifically near the end of UC2, the monastery, the mountains and chase scene in the mountains, and ice caves.

That and the characters also bear significant similarities of course. The main character being exactly the same but with blonde hair.

TheIneffableBob2163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

Monasteries, mountains, chase scenes in mountains, and ice caves aren't really unique.

Jackie Chan Adventures had them!

Xander-RKoS2163d ago

I think these are common locations to use. Heck, almost every setting in Uncharted 2 is in Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, and the Indiana Jones games came out first I think.

Biggest2164d ago

I have an answer in the form of a question. Name the one game that Uncharted 2 reminds you of. That can be the game that we say this totally awesome looking game is ripping off.

ChronoJoe2163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

Your comment was poorly constructed and confusing. Although I believe I know what you mean.

You mean this is ripping off Indiana Jones, rather than UC2? I don't believe that's the case though. It seems there's a lot, directly taken from Uncharted. Of course Indiana Jones remains the leading inspiration for this type of game, but there's a difference by being inspired by, and ripping something off.

Cheeseknight282163d ago

Well Uncharted was simply a bigger and better Tomb Raider for a new generation. There's nothing wrong with that, but that is really it's biggest inspiration.

ChronoJoe2163d ago

I will forward a new line of argument.

Gears of War is Uncharted's biggest inspiration.

Inside_out2163d ago (Edited 2163d ago )

Indiana Jones??? Lets take a looksy...

When did The PS3 launch?...Hmmmm...This is June '06...I remember some tech vids in '05.

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

I guess we should expect some Sony Move compatibility in the next Uncharted, wonder how that will look...

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Indiana Jones is available right now on the Wii...PS3/360 version TBA...here's the trailer for the handsome Wii version.

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have announced a new Indy movie, I wonder if there will be a game/movie tie in.

frostypants2163d ago

The gameplay in Uncharted 2 is nothing like Tomb Raider.

Uncharted 2 isn't a rip off. It's an homage to a genre.

SOAD2163d ago

When the product is good, it's called an homage. When the product is bad, it's called a rip-off.

Christopher2163d ago

No, rip-offs steal from existing material: characters, storyline, etc.

Uncharted 2 didn't just throw a guy up on the screen with a whip and a hat and have him go after a Crystal Skull or anything. They wrote a completely different story with completely different people doing completely different things.

gamerzBEreal172163d ago

guys i have to agree with him i mean uncharted2 is greatly done but

http://www.youtube.com/watc...
