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 Russell  +   1989d 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 :/

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.

This looks horrible as hell, but it's nice to see inspiration spreads...Like CREATE from EA.
shadow2797  +   1989d 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.

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.

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.
karl  +   1989d ago
i actually thought some of the moments from the trailer were really cool

to bad the graphics suck...
bjornbear  +   1989d 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

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.

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.

Uncharted is an action/adventure game
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-mouzer  +   1989d 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.
ChronoJoe  +   1989d 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.
TheIneffableBob  +   1989d ago
Monasteries, mountains, chase scenes in mountains, and ice caves aren't really unique.

Jackie Chan Adventures had them!

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.

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.
ChronoJoe  +   1989d 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.

Cheeseknight28  +   1989d 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.
ChronoJoe  +   1989d ago
I will forward a new line of argument.

Gears of War is Uncharted's biggest inspiration.
Inside_out  +   1989d ago
Indiana Jones??? Lets take a looksy...

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

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

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

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

Christopher  +   1989d 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.
gamerzBEreal17  +   1989d ago
guys i have to agree with him i mean uncharted2 is greatly done but
skip to about 8:10
skip to about 4:20 its kinda simulaure
theres also big boats in that movie with dead bodys (the big boat u find the dead body in and uncharted1) lots of snow (like in uncharted2) big exsplosions a hot chick and 2 guys in both movies both looking for big treasure the story is differnt and uncharted is really fun but there are movies that are like uncharted

You're also confusing. Which one is Uncharted 2 supposed to be a rip of? Indiana Jones, which is a movies series, is not the same as Tomb Raider, which is a game series.
ChronoJoe  +   1989d ago
Not really, actually. They're very different.

I mean the concept is the same, an adventure based around historical treasures, and ancient structures... but aside that the games are there own.

Saying Uncharted is an Indy ripoff is like saying Halo is a Starship troopers ripoff... both military sci-fi stories... but from there they're also very different.
MMFGaming  +   1989d ago
Halo is more of an Aliens rip off than a Starship Troopers rip off.

And I don't mean "rip off" in a negative way. Uncharted 2 is awesome --but it's essentially a shameless Indiana Jones clone. Drake embodies Harrison Ford's charm and charisma, he's a roguish explorer and treasure hunter, fights old guys with English accents, etc. etc.
Bathyj  +   1989d ago
OMG, it is a ripoff. Theres a guy and a girl....and another guy with another girl. /s

Hey I love Uncharted, but I dont think for a second it invented the action/adventure genre.

God, is every game with a swashbuckling hero and a bit of snow going to be compared to Uncharted now? These are probably the same idiots who were calling Uncharted a Tombraider Clone 3 years ago.

Besides, judging by the trailer, Uncharted would say "Meh !"
rakunado  +   1989d ago
^^ totally agree.

Just because Uc2 was huge hit last year, everyone is linking everything and anything to it. Last I checked the main hero of that game could even be Biggles because of the Airplane jacket oh wait Hogan from Hogans heroes wore a jacket like that too, oh wait no... its drake because uc2 is all that these writers know about.

Writers these days... meh.

Now we call it a ripoff after all the FPS, Smhups, beat'm ups, adventures, rpg's, action, third person shooters, puzzles ETC ETC.

Just cause it does a bit of the same ( I can't really find what its ripping off exactly, we just saw a trailer of some sort that all looked like CGI rather than ingame material) doesn't mean its a ripoff.

Yeah they completely forgot that movie that ripped off Uncharted 2, it was called something like Indiana Jones, and it also had a cocky lead protagonist with a beautiful women companion and Asian sidekick. Or maybe just maybe these stereotypical roles have been around for so long that to suddenly trademark Uncharted with their creation signals that you are a completely retarded "journalist" (and I use that term lightly).
Obama  +   1989d ago
Definitely a rip off judging from the trailer. The train and ice cave sequence just bear too much resemblance.
lolzers  +   1989d ago
Yeah, I mean trains and ice caves have never been done before aye? UC2 practically invented them. UC2 also was the first game to have a guy looking for treasure around the world. It invented everthing in action adventure games as we know it, no game in the world had the features that UC2 had until it came out.

I just described any of hundreds of action adventures, from film, tv, games and books.

Broken sword also had a boy and girl going on adventure, its not like Uncharted was the first ever pioneer in having one boy and one girl going on adventure.

Low budget game and if anything it's going after Indiana Jones lol

I know UC2 can be compared to Indiana in some respects but this game just reminds me of Indiana Jones with the whole setting an era (WWII with the Nazis) and then obviously some sort of archeological power that the Nazis are after but the protagonist must get first lol
