Gametrailers.com has posted this exclusive video of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.
Check it out.
6 million polygon scene with buildings reflected in the water. AND IM NOT WATCHING IT!
Plus note - this is an old build, as the explosions haven't been updated to what they are now :)
why shud he believe u ?this are new clips btw and this game i cant belive u think this game has good grapics shows how far fanboys can dream anyway this game is depthless the action is "PA"pa"pa" pa that all u here from the guns which all sound the same and have o feel to them its like yawn the repetitiveness is rediculous in this game all lvls seen have the same undertone there is no in depth story its based on A POP movie god this game is average im happy that its coming out when assassins creed/mass effect/cod4 are coming out as gamer/reviews will be review all at the same time .
You don't even own a PS3 so whats your problem?
Get over your hate for Sony. The way you talk, nobody will ever listen to you either.
I think it Looks fantastic, especially the water effects. Small touches like the bodies floating in the water look realistic. I admit the barrels explode a bit like they are made of nothing, but it could be a missing effect.
To judge the WHOLE game on 5 minutes of what seems like a transition scene is plain idiotic.
This is an early build because there is alot of screen tearing occuring and missing frames of animation in Elena's model (Naughty Dog considers screen tearing a bug and has made it a point to clear every single one, the framerate never hits under 45 either, Naughty Dog considers a framerate of under 30 to be a bug in the game).
We've seen the new explosions, they don't look anything like that anymore. People thought the mini nuclear bombs were crap looking, they still look stylized, but to a less extent. In case you also didn't know, splashes weren't put into the game until recently. Those explosions from the barrels now causes ripples and splashing in the water. If you look at old footage, enemies fall into the water, Drake would run through little puddles and dive through them but it wouldn't cause a splash. Now they do.
Also, the shooting isn't like that anymore ever since TTP on NeoGAF made a big deal of how bad it looked. Evan himself came out and said they completely revamped how it looked because it looked bad even internally.
Still one of the top 2 games on my list either way... But I do have to admit, hopefully they remove some of those barrels and make this section a little more fun. As it stands from that video, it's more hassle and dumb than it would be fun...
here is my unbiased opinion. 1st the bad.
The barrell explosions look pretty lame not the worst but with a game that looks this good you will expect a lil better. The water splashes also arent as realistic as they can be not as bad as the explosions but am sure cud be better
Game looks f'in amazing. Graphics are mad solid also if you didnt notice they got wet which i think is pretty cool. The water jet ski takes away from the repetitiveness this will definetly be th eps3 game of the yr. Hopefully its not 6hrs long like call of duty. And for the clown hating on the game jst let it go you knw u wish u had it but u cnt have it all if u wanna play it get a ps3 or jst let it go
Lol to the guy below everyone is entitled to their own opinion i thought it looked great u think it looks terrible to each his own. Am sure if u want you can try to ride past the barrels but they might get shot and u might die if u wanna play it like a race go ahead its ur choice this game isnt about a jet ski thing it would have been better if u could move and shoot maybe use a lil six axis for that wateva but they didnt but am still gonna enjoy the jet ski scene regardless
That looked terrible. I'm on a jet ski don't put oil drums in my way. And if you do make it so I can shoot them while I roll. It supposed to be fast not let me stop in the middle of the moat to shoot someone who already has a bead on me in the first place.
Graphics looked pretty cool - explosions were a little weak but not bad. But I don't understand how it could be set so easy - in most games sitting around like that would get you killed. Seems like getting shot had no effect on health. But I suspect balancing issues are being resolved and I like to see a change of pace in a game - keeps things interesting. Hard to tell much from such a short section but this better be good though - the PS3 needs some good games.
I think having to stop and seek out these almost perfectly camoflauged enemies takes away from gameplay. It was pretty obvious that in some cases the player knew where the enemies were being that he stopped and shot them before they actually show at him.
It would have been nice if the scene would have been where you must drive between the barrels with explosions happening all around you blowing you off course and things like that. Even James Bond wouldn't stop cold turkey and take aim on targets while being shot at. Perhaps they could have put a gun on the jetski with a pipper that aims as you steer so that you can just haul A$$ and shoot at the same time.
Anyway, the game still looks great. I'm going to wait for the reviews before buying this one. Although, I think it will review pretty well. We'll see.
mesh1 your a idiot, better graphics then your 360 has ever displayed
overly impressed. This game is on my wishlist. ohhhhh yeaaa.
pretty damn cool, graphics look really good.
with the explosion. And why no reload for the shotgun? Otherwise, it looks great
read post ONE.
I'm not a big fan of constantly having to stop and shoot those barrels. That doesn't seem very fun.
Game looks great, and everything else seems to be really awesome.
thats a grenade launcher, and I dont know why she doenst reload it
the new build then, this is the current video, and it looks dull in the explosion, nothing to fuss about. I'll see the improve explosion when I buy the game, but now, it look ok
Why does it say : "Jet Ski Ruins Gameplay" in the title?
I can't see the vid, I'm at work.
Edit: Damn, that is a terribly named video.
Edit2: The reason I can't see it at work is because I get blocked out of most interesting webpages. That way I suppoosedly don't waste time.
you need to download flash. You cant see the embedded video since you do not have flash-enabled on your computer.
Haha, yea I misinterpreted the title too, until I read the gametrailers description and realized that he jet skis through ancient ruins. So, much to my relief, the jet ski sequence does not ruin the gameplay :)
its "ruins" like a city in Ruins not ruins like "you ruined my day". I read it that way at first also. Poorly named video lol
I thought it was just another one of those dime a dozen connotations that seem to be becoming more common around here, but actually, it's not:
Don't think of "ruins" as a verb, but rather as a noun pertaining to ancient architectural artifacts, such as "Roman ruins", or the "ruins of Pompeii", and it'll make a whole lot more sense.
Still funny though.
Uh, what millertime8306 and Agriel says. ^^^^^^^^^
(How'd I not see their comments before???)
Looks beautiful... here is a more recent build pic...
i hope they will bring a gameplay version out. That looks immense.
holy crap!!!!...that is one of the most impressive shots I have seen of this game yet, and I have been anticipating this game since I first heard about it...
yeah this video had me hoping it was older...the water looked good...but the explosions looked really bland, especially the barrels with a wierd 2d water mist spraying up...the grenades though had that really awesome smoke plume that would slowly rise after an explosion, which was only in the newer builds I thought...I guess not...because this video had only the single color orange fire stuff going on...nothing like the newer trailers...
that pic though, if that is a real in game shot...that is one of the most impressive thing I have ever seen in a video game so far...
Quiet down now. It's all innocent.
is what it should say, looks like fun to me steer and switch to other character to fire good technique and a little fresh i dont see whats the prob.
Also that is a grenade launcher or something not a shotgon also there should be reload.
nothing like the build now.
that person just kept stopping and shooting but i bet you can move and shoot to like in mgs4.
please people, just wait for other vids and dont let one person who might have just wanted to stop and shoot make you think this part is boring
it would be nice if you could play this game with 2 people
I bet you money thats not the finished product.... graphics and gameplay.
looks pretty good, I know its an early build but I hope they work on the barrels exploding in the water. It looks kinda off to me, likes it missing a little something.
a video game shotgun, you now how video game people also have bodies that are bullet proof and can take a lot more than 1 direct shot.
I can imagine this part 2 players.
One drivers other shoots!
I cannot wait for this game. Looks amazing
I saw 9's or better across the board. From everything I have seen not just this video. Lets rule out all the things this game has to do right to nail 9's.
1. Be long and immense (yea shorts games arent allowed on PS3)but everywhere else they are acceptable.
2. be in 1080P + 60 FPS (PS3 not allowed to fall short there either god forbid a game running in 640P Sony would be doomer for sure)
3. Not be exclusive to PS3 (The Most important because if its a Sony First Party Exclusive.... We have to bash.... 9's...for a Sony exclusive. Blasphemy)... If Naughty wants this to get the AAA scores it deserves they better go multiplat and on the double.....
My points above based on past reviews and observations made on PS3 games.
reminds me of Just Cause + Tomb Raider.
Graphics looks nice, can't say much more than that about it.
its JUST CAUSE 2 the grapics are not good there are 3 or 4 color palettes in this game and again this is the current build .
pity the fool that cant look past their brand loyalty!!
Would be cooler if there's more action (Like the Jet Ski driving in Half Life 2), but looks great anyway.
First time I have ever been bothered to watch a HD preview of Uncharted..
My gf is buying me this game for xmas in exchange for a bread maker :)
...fresh bread & uncharted. happy days!
oh and just a suggestion, top it all of with 7-8 beers!
being a pc gamer a heart i tend to be pretty fussy with graphics, but this game is amazing, its the little touches that many probably dont even notice, for example...
when they first sit on the jet ski you can notice ripples in the water push away due to the extrea weight, just like water would. to me, its these little things that really show me the developer has taken their time and helps to make the whole experience more 'believeable'.
is with the title. Think it looks great and will def. be picking this one up. I like how one of the commenters on GT says, "I hope it's not another Heavenly Sword or Lair?" .......wtf?lol, bet he doesn't even know how to spell PlayStation with those comments, much less played either one of those games, especially HS.
And this is from an OLD Build???!! Damn, that's so awesome.
(reads initial news header)
Xbot-Jet Ski Ruins the Gameplay on a PS3 game! Whoo hoo, time to come in here and troll. Good thing this game isnt AAA anymore! Time to make these sony boys cry!
: xbot watches the video :
"Aw d*mn. Jet Ski ruins is the name of the stage. Phuck! Uncharted still looks like a game I really want to play. I cant find a flaw in it so I really cant say nothing. I want to bash this game so bad since it's not coming on 360 but there's honestly nothing to bash about this game. It looks beautiful."
"Oh well nothing to see here. I'll just leave here and not post anything."
P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
im happy your happy about your PS3.... but.
this is a game site to post comments relating to the headline/articles, its not for social networking or a chat room, if you wanna post comment directed at specific people go do it on myspace but not here please.
Man, the graphics are incredible. And everything is being reflected on the surface of the water... Wow. The explosions need to be bigger and more loud, but I see that's already been fixed in that new screenshot.
Im going to be so freakin' broke next month :(
looks very good
You know, i really thought this game might give me an excuse to come up with the money for a ps3. But now that i've seen this video...no thanks. aside from good lighting, this game has nothing to offer. The graphics aren't next gen, the water looks terrible especially the splashing, and all the plumes of fire look exactly the same and very cheap.
This game would flow much better if it were like half life where you control the driving with the left thumb stick and the shooting with the right. that stop and go makes for a VERY boring scene. and speaking of half life 2, it's a 4 year old game and it crushes this game in every visual category.
For being the "most powerful machine in this current generation" i haven't seen one game out or coming soon that is technically impressive or anything close to what 360 has offered. I'll stick with the winner. Have fun with Uncharted while i'm playing Mass Effect. :D
i'm still waiting for a reason to buy a 360. are those failure rates getting any better?
Why must you come here and bash this game. It's great. Go play Halo 3. Or are you already bored of the played out gameplay.
Hey holmes, at least we have games to play and get bored of. You'd get bored of your games too if you had any to play. And i'm not bored of halo, i'm just distracted by Orange Box. I AM, however, very bored of Tomb Raider...which is all this is...a glorified tomb raider with a male lead character.
Can people please stop with these mundane generalizations. When everyone uses the same shallow statements, uncharted looks like tomb raider, heavenly sword looks like god of war, it just goes to show how naive and ignorant you are being. Give real criticisms if you have them, prove you have an independent thought in your head.
mighty douche, just read your comment. lol...so you think nobody noticed the ripples? i'm sure EVERYONE noticed the ripples, it was the only part in that video that felt realistic. By the way, for you ppl saying the graphics are nice, i just wanna add, each character model looks like it uses about 5 polygons. TERRIBLE! Nothing impressive about this game (aside from the ripples...lol).
PS3 owners are so desperate for a good game their minds are playing tricks on em.
wow, you are a real doofus....
and you're ignored.
I agree, ignored. You sir are the type of person that makes this site a pain in the arse... what other accounts do you have here? seriously.
After reading all these positive comments about this game, i was convinced you were all blind. but after seeing that i'm being ignored for pointing out wishful thinking doesn't make a game good, i realize you're just stupid.
Powder.... Toast..... MMAAAAAANNNNN!!
A winner Me thinks .........BIG ONE !!!!!!!!!!!
Is probably going to bethe BEST game on the PS3 this year. That is saying a lot, since Warhawk, Heavenly sword, Ratchet and Clank, and others are comming out also. But I am most looking forward to this game. I cant wait.
Terrible explosion and splash effects, jet ski part looks boring :(
deep rightly said "this is an old build, as the explosions haven't been updated to what they are now ."
btw the video is fantastic and will be ultra fantastic after the developers finish the game.
lex why do you even have a ps3 your allways negitive about it
Whatever u say "Holmes"....Last time I checked this was a PS3 article that I guess attracts iggnorant fanboys like your self. What attracted u to this article? I'd like to know
If you read the comment 2 before that, you would have seen that up until i watched that video i had hoped this would be the game that convinced me to buy a ps3. I have nothing against the system itself. I realize it's probably the most powerful. It just has incredibly crappy games and lousy developers. There hasn't been one game that has come close to the scores of gears of war, halo, orange box, bioshock....add that on to too much money and there is no reason to own this system. The people that sat in line waiting for this thing, then forking over a months pay for it are now so desperate for a game that doesn't blow that they will trick their eyes into seeing stuff that isn't there just to justify their foolish purchase. It is absolutely a jealousy thing. If the PS fanboys had just bought a 360, they'd have a ton of games to play and they would have spent less on the system itself. Now any time someone comes along and says "this game sucks and the system doesn't have any other good games either," i'm automatically called a fanboy. I don't buy systems for the systems...i buy them for the games. and since sony has none (except for oblivion and a few others that were already on xbox) and 360 has a bunch, i own and play that. when sony actually does get a good game or two, maybe i'll change my tune. THIS GAME ISN'T IT. it looks like last gen garbage. the end.
