As I said it the other article, the animations are absolutely horrid and not even close to the animations in Uncharted.

The visuals themselves are pretty decent. Glitchy, but decent. People that say it looks like a PS2 game are ignorant to the max. The PS2 couldn't come close to rendering graphics like those.

People are so clueless about the technical side of graphics. The only thing that looked better in some PS2 games is the animation. This game has horribly primitive animations. But in terms of textures, lighting, effects, etc. the PS2 couldn't begin to run a game like this.

Personally, I have a feeling this game will not be very good. I am looking forward to Uncharted 3 and Tomb Raider.

Dont know about you ... but given the amount of resources they have at their disposal ... I wouldnt be surprised them becoming one of the biggest game developers in coming 5 years. Because talent is up for sale and they got all the money to buy it ... just sayin ...

In my point of view ... this is an excellent publicity stunt for unknown developer.

The shit thing is a kid can use Unity Engine and develop game ... hope they'll use some better engine such as Cryengine or Unreal Engine for their future games ... or better built their own from scratch.

BTW gimme effing 6 months and I can develop this level game from scratch on my own engine alone.

This is quite possibly the most shameless ripoff I've ever seen.

Wait this is an actual game that is going to be released?

First of all I hope they get sued. Second, why would Sony even allow this on their store?

They should blacklist these developers until they do something that is not a blatant rip off.

When you don't have the ressources you come up with something original in its game design and gameplay, you don't do sub-quality plagiarism of a successful title. That's the terrible thing with this game.

I mean, what's the use of doing something someone else already did 10 times better?

Limited resources or not, they could at least have made it where the screen didn't jitter all over the place and when you aim your gun down and shoot the ground, the character isn't still pointing his gun straight ahead of him.

Obviously it's an inexperienced developer from a country without exactly a reputation for game developers to say the least.

It doesn't look 'bad' though for what it is. Most developing countries begin by imitating western companies and then building on their successes once they have mastered that. Give it 5 years and they may be making something everyone here will want to play.

You guys just jump at everything. No way in hell this is a rip-off of anything.

This game is clearly on its own out there. Has nothing to do with Uncharted.

Game is being developed where? Saudi Arabian development house. Ok. That explains the graphics, the physics, the everything really. Game has uncharted like themes just because its around a dessert? A solid game has never come out of Saudi Arabia. So this is a new development. They likely are not the most experienced game developers. Even if they make complete crap and sell it to the Billions of people in India they will be rich. Let them make a trilogy and learn some new tactics in game development.

I could have phrased what I said better, I suppose. To make it clear, I didn't mean "Arabs" when I said "They", I meant extremists. When you live in such a tolerate community, you forget that you can make no implications because people will think you're being racist. Where I'm from, no one would have even assumed that was what I meant.

No one is being racist here. No need for personal attacks or sensitivity-fueled outbursts. Extremists would indeed go on a rampage that we rarely see result from antisemitism.

Looks more like a tomb raider clone but not uncharted, uncharted is a clone of tomb raider LOL. Uncharted is tomb raider with some gears of war mechanics. Why would anybody copy uncharted It's not even a mainstream franchise? The combat in uncharted is god awful and is the only thing I see this game inspired from uncharted.

This game is outdated looking and plays like a last generation game overall with the same loose and unpolished fighting mechanics of the uncharted series and silly overkill with animations that retard the gameplay.

I didn't like the shooting mechanics in Uncharted 2. Can't stand them. Also thought the AI was dumb as a rock.

Also after seeing Tomb Raider at E3, I can honestly say I am more excited to play Tomb Raider than I am Uncharted 3.

Tomb Raider is a copy of Indian Jones. The Tomb Raider games suck anyway, there is nothing special about them.
MaxXAttaxX  +   1615d ago
It's called the "lost world" genre
It's been around for a lot longer than Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones(a King Solomon's Mines rip).

So no, Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones didn't invent the genre nor is Uncharted a clone.

Might I also point out that pulp novels such as Doc Savage and the lost world genre in general were the inspiration for Uncharted.

BUT people fail to realize that this mainly applies to the first game, as the sequels have evolved into more unique beasts.

A true fan of both TR and UC like myself knows the difference. And haters gonna hate.

I LOVE it when people (usually the ignorant and mostly jealous 360 fanboys) call the Uncharted series a Tomb Raider clone. Not only are the games in their gameplay design quite different, but Naughty Dog have done a much, much better job and they've only released 2 games in the series. Heck even Crystal Dynamics has had to reinvent their series because of how stale it has become over the years, and it's clear they've been inspired by Naughty Dog's creative process. I do love the TR series and I'm looking forward to the reboot, but credit where credit is due...

And then I hear Indiana Jones "rip-off". Have you guys never heard of inspiration? I don't care. I love the Indiana Jones films, but they're so different to the Uncharted games it's quite surprising - the only similarity is some of the aspects of Drake's personality, and the fact that they are both treature hunters.

To add, I've never really heard people calling out Halo for the Tribes clone that it is either, but we always hear about the "Tomb Raider clone".

But the most laughable one is when these people call Uncharted a Gears of War rip-off. Now THAT is rich. Not only is Gears not all that original either, but the fact that people claim its cover system to be innovative and that Naughty Dog copied it... that's just gold.

L, O, L at the disagrees xD

Oh, my bad, I didn't know Uncharted was just as popular as Halo and Mario.

Can we be serious here? Level-headed? All I was saying is that Uncharted isn't a franchise that everyone wants. Where's Nintendo and Microsoft's response to Uncharted? Exactly. Gears came out before Uncharted and Nintendo doesn't even have a 3rd-person shooter, so does that sound like everyone wants Uncharted to you?


Where's Nintendo or Sony's clone? All because some RANDOM Saudi dev makes a clone obviously everyone wants it? The competing companies are the ones that should matter.

Example: Everyone wants motion control.
Result: Microsoft and Sony both come out with new motion inputs.

See the difference between motion control and this? I can't believe I actually had to explain this xD. Hilyou's reply was reasonable though and actually made sense. There's really no need to get defensive here, I didn't say anything negative about Uncharted.
