Following the reveal of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, news site HULIQ evaluates the potential for Uncharted's multi-player to succeed.
As the article states: "The first game in the franchise was single-player only, while the second game added a decent but ultimately forgettable adversarial multi-player component. HULIQ therefore found it notable that Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells stressed that a large portion of development resources are being spent on the game's multi-player and co-op features because "we want to take on the big boys of the multi-player genre. . . . It has become something here at Naughty Dog that will become an important part to all our games.” No one in the industry doubts the developer's prowess in crafting a well-paced single-player campaign, but does the typical adversarial multi-player suite really fit in the adventures of Nathan Drake?"
