Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - Eurogamer First Impressions

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is different. You won't find any wumpa fruit, furry friends or double jumps here. The characters are human. The environments are realistic. The weapons are sniper rifles, grenades and AK-47s, not chunky laser beam blasters.

During the demo we see three of the environments you get to run around. There's the interior of a fort, beautifully lit with blue-green tones and complete with spectacular water effects. Next up is an open area where you're surrounded by moss-covered ruins - Lara would feel right at home.

That really surprised me...kind of disappointing for this type of game. Henning even sounds a bit embarrassed by the length. I love the visual style though.

The dude from Eurogamer just admitted that they gave 9.5/10 for a game that can be finish in less an an hour (its in the article) so we just have to wait and see.

*Thats why I said we just have to wait and see. As long as the game can deliver great experience within 10 hours then that's fine.... or would you rather spend 50 hours with a boring game? heck 50 hours with good game is even better.

But there's a BIG price difference.
"Mind you, that game costs GBP 4.25, not GBP 42.50."

Edit for Thundermare: A 10 hour game with no multiplayer would be a rental for me...I don't care if it was the highest rated game in history.

I think you love games like Enchanted Arms.


Captain Tuttle3869d ago (Edited 3869d ago )

Nah, not Enchanted Arms. I'm not into the whole metrosexual thing. Give me Fallout 1&2 anyday.

God of War 2 was 10 hours long.
Those reviewers are being too picky.

If naughty dog doesn't announce it, the reviews will lower from 90's to 80's immediatly.

I can't wait to try this one out.
I can live with a game that has a main story of only 10 hrs, (I'd like a great game to last longer of course) but they can still have some replayability in the form of unlockables, or playing the storyline a 2nd time with all of your acquired equipment from the first time through.
Those would be some easy fixes that would keep people playing a little longer, and make this game a must-buy, instead of maybe a must-rent.

who cares about how long a damn game is.. as long as its a great game thats all that matters.. So if a game sucks but its very long is that a good thing? But if a game is great (heavenly sword) but its short is that a bad thing??? I mean how long do people want games to be?

Most games are short and can be finished within 10 hours or less.. And i find that to be a good thing with most games.. If a game is great but drags the story out to make it a long game than it will suck.. lol.. The only game i have played that is very very long is oblivion and i find that game to be ok.. people are too pickiy reviewing these games..
