Sony released these 2 new videos of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune showcasing the game's awesome graphics: Facial animation and environments.
Can this game get any better?
Sad for others that is exclusive for the PS3
Whoa, I guess it's really hard to create water even on the ps3 because that water sucked the big one. But anyway this looks like a fun game. I'll be checking it out for sure.
FirstknighT first of all u shocked me ( i thought u was a x box fanboy)
second Only on ps3 baby woo
You might think I bash on the ps3 all the time, but I don't. Just a few times! ;) Uncharted looks like a winner.
BTW, I played and beat Resistance, great game, crappy online. I played Motorstorm. Fun game. I played Warhawk, got boring really quick. And that is my whole ps3 experience so far. But nothing screams "BUY ME." Atleast not for me. And nothing in the near future says "Buy Me" either.
resistance crappy online?...have to disagree with that...feature wise it was one of the best online console games ever...if you didn't like the gameplay, or 40 players at once...well I guess that is why you would deem it "crappy"...but dedicated servers, stats, customizations, all linked to an officialy website...all from a launch title and brand new, at the time, online network...you have to admit that is pretty impressive...
and Warhawk got boring?...dude seriously?...what games do you like to play online?...I would understand if you only gave the game 10 minutes and didn't have fun...I would imagine you didn't come close to killing anyone, and didn't last in the air more than about 15 seconds...but if you dedicate 30 minutes to an hour to learn the controls and areas of the maps...it ends up being one of the best online experiences ever imo...
they didn't show any impressive water stuff in that video...actually I haven't seen any water stuff that really blew me away except for a slow motion fight in a cave or something...the water looked good, and ripples looked realistic...but the impressive part was how the characters looked wet when coming up out of the water...so like waste down was totally different textures than the upper part out of the water...was really cool looking...
the game has some cool crysis like stuff too...the way wind has an affect on the forest and plants...and the "forces" of an explosion blowing branches around...plus the deforestation all seems great so far...this game is definitely shaping up to be a contender for one of the best looking games released so far...
one of my favorites for this Hollyday =)
is a must buy for every ps3 owner.
I'm buying it because I'm a fan of Naughty Dog, and cause I really like the setting.
Damn. Does this game have the best graphics this year or what?
I cant find the right word to describe this game. Heck ill just use Superb!!!
This baby will sure win awards no doubt about that..i`m so excited about this tittle like a kid in a candy store
Easily the best console game I've evern seen in terms of graphics. Naughty dog is definitely doing a lot to tap the power of PS3, and if this game lives up to the promise, I will never have to hear "360 games look better than PS3" every again.
seriously...there will always be an idiot that still says a PS3 can't do Gears (which will be very amusing considering how UT3 looks)...but it will do wonders to prove what the console is capable of when the right developers get ahold of it...
Insomniac and Naughty Dog are within weeks of releasing two of the most visually impressive console games ever created...only time will tell if that quiets any of the mumbles of what the PS3 is or isn't capable of...
i think anyone who has a ps3 is getting this game thats a given.
i really cant wait for this game.
That water sucked the big one?
WTF are you on about.
What games do u think actually have decent water fx, because i've seen many, and the best that come to mind are hl2.
The water in bioshock is poor.
Other then that the best water fx on pc is in crysis.
WTF are YOU on about?
Bioshock's water was pretty good overall...at some points water falls and river'ish flows didn't look that good...but the dripping water into puddles with real-time reflections looked amazing...so it was a mixed bag imo...thats how all UE3 games have been imo...Gears had some excellent water effects...and some pretty average looking stuff too at times...R6 Vegas...great puddles and fountains in the casinos...then ridiculously bad water at the Dam...UT3 is the only one I don't know about yet...Shangri La has some of the best of all UE3 games I have seen so far, but only played the demo...I am sure they managed an ugly waterfall or something in there somewhere...
honestly, taking out almost all interactivity, I think Warhawk has some of the best looking water ever...as well as Lair...the way the waves move realisticly, and the real-time reflections of the sun and clouds, or cliffs are all there...with a realisticly muted tone...gives an awesome appearance of sort of murky water...rather than crystal clear water with a mirror like surface normally put in some other games...just sucks though that in warhawk there isn't any really awesome splashes or anything when a tank or jeep falls in the water...the warhawk's make mist come up off the surface and stuff when they are close...but water penetration never really got a lot of attention in the game...similar with lair...
Crysis takes that to a next level...but haven't played it yet or anything...so I am sure its better, just don't know by how much yet...
As of now this is the new graphics standard in a console game... I have NEVER seen suck amazing lighting, animation, waterwind effect, sharp releastic but also stylistic environments. This is real next-gen console graphics.
wow, please give me a minute while i scrape my jaw off the floor...
Thorw yourself off a bridge...or buy a new pair of glasses. Seriously, if Uncharted water 'sucks', tell me any game that has water that rocks.
Please do, cause I want to see that game.
The water on Unhcarted looks freaky amazing! It just does. As does Bioshock's water, for example. You know, just cause Uncharted is a PS3 exclusive you don't have to say it sucks ;)
Oh, and Resistance's online sucks? Awesome matchmaking system, varied maps, lots of game modes, extensive stat tracking, clan support, community friendly (myresistance.net), lots of different weapons, lag free. And most importantly: fun.
So how does it suck?
Anyways, did anyone notice how Drake's pants and shirt got all wet after he ran around in the water? Amazing!
This game will kick so much ass :D
When xg-e8ght says Bio's water is poor, also, everybody agrees with him.
When I try to say Bio's water looks good, everybody disagrees with me.
So we can conclude this, Bioshock's water looks good, but only when a ps3 fan says it, while at the same time, he gives props to a ps3 game.
Bioshock's water is poor, when a ps3 fan says it's poor.
Bioshock's water is poor when a 360 fan says it's good.
You people crack me up.
I am so pleased to see a Game that is not washed out .....
not about War ........... and NOT .......... about Aliens .
REAL WORLD , REAL PLEOPLE ,REAL FUN...........
Adventure of the hightest Caliber,
NAUGHTY DOG STYLE .
I can't agree more. For once an action game which is not just a shooter! Hooray!
I think the visuals are jar dropping. People have praises for Crysis all over the place. But look at that jungle! Trees with real leaves blowing in the wind (which, if you listen closely, the guy said is not constant - they calc "turbulences" in the wind) and casting real time shadows. And that, in the addition to water physics and life like facial animations. Show me what tops that currently - not just on consoles.
I really thought Heavenly Sword 2 would be the first game to out do HS in terms of facial animation...but it looks like Uncharted is going to do it relatively soon...Naughty Dog has always been praised for undeniably good character animations...and this game looks to set the bar big time for a while to come...
why is everyone so worried about the water, is not a swimming game.
Buy JAWS if you want plenty of water.
The game looks great so quit bashing it.
The game looks good but I don't think it's as crazy looking as some of you are making it out to be. KZ2 floored me, MGS 4 floored me, heck I even think Ratchet looks slightly better than this. But I guess to each his own. It's funny cause not too long ago everyone was bashing halo for its "color" and now that Uncharted and Ratchet is upon us no one seems to mind lol
Who was bashing Halo for its color ? What people said, for a shooter its pretty unrealistic that you have a "pink" (or whatever bright) character running around. That's like carrying a sign "please shoot me here". That's all.
agreed...no one was bashing Halo in terms of it having color...they were bashing it in terms of the colors they decided to go with...pink, purple, neon everything...some people felt those colors made the overall game feel way more childish than it was intended to be...
and Uncharted has nothing in common with that...Uncharted has hand-painted texturing to achieve the art style they wanted...it, like Halo, isn't supposed to come off as ultra-realistic...its just that Naughty Dog didn't use pink and purple everywhere...hence the lack of complaints on the color...
and R&C is a cartoony pixar like game...its supposed to have all that crazy stylized coloring...yet somehow it too steers away from overusing neon blue, pink, and purple...
I don't know why I am even saying this...I never complained about Halo 3's coloring...I know some did, and I have to admit I wouldn't have minded less purple...but halo has nothing in common with any of these games...at all...so it doesn't matter...
The thing that's amazing about Uncharted's water is that the parts of Drake that get submerged actually get wet.
The shadows from the trees are just visually pleasing.
well, by the game release, there should be around 3 mln. ps3 owners in usa, so atleast 1 of 10 people will buy this game, imo. =)
Uncharted is GREAT gaming experiecne, as much as Ratchet, Heavenly Sword and Warhawk. And maybe Folklore and Lair for some. =)
This is one beautiful game...
Biggest PS3 hit of the year!
I'll set the record straight, I played bioshock on pc with a dualcore and 8800gtx, at 1650x1080 x4aa 16xaf. Yes i enjoyed the game and i also like the visuals. My comment above was only on the water, which i found lacking in many areas, already mentioned in this thread.
The realtime dripping etc, i'll give creds for.
But overall not enough.
Now with uncharted i'm only going by a video, but even from that video i can see they've put alot into every part of it. Maybe there is a messed up waterfall^ somewhere in their etc, But i was overly impressed.
And by the way, its got nothing to do with it being a 360 game. I am more a pc owner then anything. I live and breathe pc.
