DualShockers writes: "Well folks, it’s finally here. Ever since the multiplayer trailer debut for Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception it’s been one long wait that’s been on minds of every self respecting PlayStation 3 owner. Now that it’s here, how does it play?"

No...they come off annoying

HARCORE MODE FTW....the real Uncharted 3 online.

Hardcore mode is great man. Just skill. The only thing I'm concerned about is if gun customization will be allowed in hardcore mode. Since the point of hardcore mode is JUST SKILL, I don't want another player having an advantage over me because he/she simply has a better gun setup.

MrSpace2520d ago (Edited 2520d ago )

That's what pisses me off about all these new features aswell. They better not be in playlists where they aren't needed like Hardcore mode. I wouldn't mind if they put a few of the fair boosters from U2 in the hardcore playlist but that's it. It's like Elimination will kickbacks, weapons mods etc be there aswell, the whole point of Elimination is to seek out and kill the others players first before they kill you, matches were already too short because of people going for the grenade launcher/RPG with kickbacks, powerplays matches will be over in a flash.

The main problem is that higher level players will be better then you because they've unlocked more stuff which is better unlike U2 where it was because they had better Skill then you. Low level players/new players coming late on might be put off if they keep getting killed because high leveled players weapons can kill them straight away. Can't we just have a simple deathmatch like U2. I'm not saying make U3 online into U2 but make online simple and easy to get into again. Less is more remember.

I actually enjoyed the powerplay thing in the match. I was in a team deathmatch and all of a sudden the powerplay started about halfway through. Kill the enemies, all marked on the map! I thought that it was pretty cool though :). I like it.

Surfaced2520d ago (Edited 2520d ago )

It really might. I remember in U2 you could sometimes annihilate the opposing team, or vice versa.

When a Power Play activates in U3, for the next 60 seconds you either scramble to take advantage of it, or freak out and try to round up your teammates for bolstered defense against what could potentially even the odds.

Even better, advanced players with a well-organized team can use Power Plays to their advantage, even when it's meant to work against them. For example, you can use the Marked Man on your team to lure your desperate oppenonts into a cruel trap that only sets them further back.

Ultimately, the Power Play tests a team's strength, and exposes those that have just 1 or 2 players doing all the work. It's likely that this system will begin appearing in future multiplayer games.

Its an awesome feature that differentiates U3's MP from other games.

Roymunson2520d ago

Well said man, at last someone who see's the positive in the new changes instead of the constant "UC3 is a cod clone" .

I noticed when power play kicks the team instinctively find each other n stick together and when marked man kicks in it feels like KZ assassinate n everyone tries and protects the marked man/girl.

Now when was the last time COD do that? NEVER.

Uncharted will use something that CoD never will, TEAMWORK.

Emilio_Estevez2520d ago

Good insight. Didn't think of it like that.

MrSpace2520d ago

You know it's funny anyone on the ND forum who offer their opinion on Uncharted 3's online get their post locked by ND if it's not possitive.

Just seems ND are acting a lil butthurt

Focker4202520d ago

No, its getting locked because its the 100th post saying the exact same thing thats already been said.

garos822519d ago

wish i could bubble you down with a "moron" option

Dannehkins2520d ago

I think it's a great option.

It really spices up the gameplay when it seems that the opposing team is gaining too much of an upper hand.

metsgaming2520d ago

Fix the controls already come on this is horrible !!!! Then put the recoil back to UC2.
