Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception versus Uncharted 2 Among Thieves: Screenshot Comparison

GB: "Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception was recently teased, officially announced and demoed too! So a lot has happened last week, so we decided to stack up Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception against Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Uncharted 2 is undoubtedly one of the finest looking games this generation and it will be tough for Naughty Dog to beat that threshold. However, Drake’s Deception looks absolutely gorgeous."

Oh Man!! Drake looks so much better in Uncharted 3. I wonder if they updated the engine?

Seijoru2438d ago

Lol of course they updated it, they aren't activision.

lociefer2438d ago (Edited 2438d ago )

WTF , how the hell did they top uc2 xD , i mean, godamn look at their facial expressions,its terrifyingly realistic

Ratchet5102438d ago

Lol that is true because Activiion decreased their graphics in every new game they do lol.

MerkinMax2438d ago (Edited 2438d ago )

Does Drake have some man boobs starting to form? Maybe he lost some muscle mass because they look a little saggy. haha

DatNJDom812438d ago

If both consoles are equal as many bots and gaming sites say, then every other game this gen should be on par with this. There just aren't any excuse anymore. Naughty Dog, along with every other Sony 1st party developer, has shown what the PS3 is capable of. I'm not going to accept anymore gimped multiplats. Where's the 360's answer? No seriously all the bots are quick to say 360 has superiorzz games, but where are they? I expect the answer to be sales....... as usual.

blumatt2438d ago

Well, Activision doesn't decrease the graphics every new game they do, but they sure did with Black Ops. I bought Black Ops and I was like "this looks WORSE than MW2." I was like how the hell did they go backwards with the graphics. MW2 looked decent, but Black Ops looks noticeably worse.

inveni02438d ago

Wait a minute...let me get this straight...

They topped Uncharted 2 AND made it 3D?

I wasn't aware that God worked for Naughty Dog...but it's the only explanation...

catguykyou2438d ago

The lighting/shadows look like it was overhauled. Adds much more detail and surprisingly makes Uncharted 2 seem "flat" in comparison.

NecrumSlavery2438d ago (Edited 2438d ago )

With the exception of the Helicopter Nepal pic, which still looks pretty awesome, the Uncharted 3 pics are so damn good that they are making Uncharted 2 look like Uncharted 1....And that game is still one of the best looking games ever. I have to say Naughty Gods have blessed us again..

If you haven't checked out the fire effects in the demo yet...They are better than CryEngine's fire..

ABizzel12438d ago (Edited 2438d ago )

Oh Drake you make my boxers wet.

Seriously though it's funny that Uncharted 3 is on par with and in some aspects better than Uncharted 2, and it has nearly a year of development to go.

The 2nd, 3rd, and last pic blow Uncharted 2 out of the water, and that's saying something since no game, has blown Uncharted 2 out of the water.

Lighting does look even better and they worked on their side-character models. Drake more or less looks just as good as he did in Uncharted 2. I wouldn't say the engine got an overhaul cuz that Nepal pic with the heli looks stunning, although I think that comparison was showcasing the difference in the lighting as the shadows in the opposing pic looks really good. Kudos to Naughty Dog, keep up the good work, can't wait to see some sand gameplay!

RageAgainstTheMShine2438d ago

freaking softer and fine on top of detailed skins!!!

ND simply ahead of their game & wont relinquish their title!

DigitalAnalog2437d ago (Edited 2437d ago )

I think the notion 3D is "downgrading" non-3D assets is entirely false. Stereoscopic 3D's only downgrade is by producing 2 images while reducing both resolution and frame-rate. Put it this way, if the game wasn't designed for 3D and then 3D was then implemented, then the only aspect of the game that would suffer is the 3D itself. However, if the 3D was built from the ground up, then the engine is MUCH more optimized.

In other words, the better the S-3D effect, the better and more optimized the game-engine. So it's no surprise why there is such a jump by U3 from it's predecessor.

I loved UC2. just played it again. FREAKIN AWESOME

theonlylolking2438d ago

Surprising how there are no disagrees with your post...yet.

manman62438d ago

Love UC2
LOVE UC3 already

duplissi2438d ago

inveni02437d ago

I always have an Uncharted 2 game going. Right now, my game is on crushing, and I've just found the stone.

Big thing that stood out to me in the trailer was the flapping of drake's scarf as he looked out over the dunes. Wish I was as talented as the people working on this game.

visualb2438d ago

its not always about talent...

usually its about hard work...

jneul2437d ago

in this case nd have both^^^ sorry but no noob could put together a game like this

The_Devil_Hunter2438d ago

Thats the power of the Playstation 3.

Christopher2438d ago

I'd rather give credit to the developers and not the platform. Talented developers can make a beautiful game on any stable platform. If Naughty Dog ever went multiplatform, I'd wait with abated breath to see what they could do with more than just the PS3. Surely it would shine brightly on both consoles.

NecrumSlavery2438d ago

I see youre playng the middle ground and that's very alphamale of you...and not to sound trollish....but...unless you can show me a multiplat game that looks better and performs better in all areas than Uncharted 2..I'll agree with you. The devs are great, but it really is about the technology. Awesome developers and space age technology = win...

Eamon2438d ago

True, but you need a suitable platform to be able show off such results anyway.

The_Devil_Hunter2438d ago

Yes obviously some credit to naughty dog should be given. Like I stated before Naughty Dog are my favorite and in my opinion one of the best devs this generation.

It only does....Naughty Dog.

RedDevils2438d ago

Did Cgoodno bubbles himself up with his multiple accounts to get that much bubbles? What a naive comment coming from his part

XabiTheHumble2438d ago

@cgoodno Developers aren't God. Contrary to popular belief, if developer has hit the limit of a platform, thats it.

Ducky2438d ago (Edited 2438d ago )


Show me another ps3 exclusive that is on the same level as UC3. It's the developper's hardwork that produces these results.

The credit is NaughtyDog's because they are really working with mostly outdated hardware (the cell is still a beast, but theres a lot of limitation from the other hardware)

That's not to say that it isn't amazing what the PS3 can squeeze out, it's just, the people squeezing it must have godly strength to be squeezing so much out of it. =)

I still have trouble believing thats an in-engine image. Looks like cgi.

hiredhelp2438d ago

hey guys as much as i love this and would like to jump on this boat of wow it looks better. i have to make such a obvious point. these pictures cannot be compar5ed. there both from differnt background lighting scenes. so your gonna get change. however one thing that is clear is theres alot more color in the face of uncharted 3. this good thing. but its gonna be better looks wise. just next time if you gonna do a match make sure you have a very simular background so lighting can also be matched.

frostypants2438d ago

Wow. A piece that doesn't totally suck. Nice job fellas.

That said, they're no doubt still working on the Uncharted 3 graphics, but they are looking nice. A bit cleaner/less muddled than the last one.

Drake needs more stubble though. :-)

FinalSpartan2438d ago

my eyes! beautiful visuals.
