Goodbye Call of Duty, the Uncharted 3 Beta Dethroned You

To this day, millions of people are still hooked to Call of Duty's fast-paced, pick-up and play style multiplayer. However, it's to the point where people only focus on Call of Duty's multiplayer as opposed to trying other games. The Uncharted 3 Beta was released earlier this week...and it obliterates COD's multiplayer thanks to implementing a more "cinematic" feel to it. Find out why it's a better multiplayer title after the link! (Call of Duty, PS3)

Call of Duty: FPS and Multiplatform

Uncharted 3: TPS and PS3 Only

Its not even the same f'ing genre!
GamersXTREME  +   1217d ago
Please understand that despite both titles being entirely different genres, multiplayer is essentially the same concept. You run around, kill people and there's occasionally a slight twist to it. If you actually read the article, I'm not comparing that one's an FPS and one's a TPS, but rather just on what makes Uncharted 3's multiplayer a vastly superior one than that of any COD. The reason behind the editorial is so people who literally stick only to COD year after year, may consider trying something more innovative and get off the "COD" bandwagon that is evidently hurting the industry.

Also, I noticed your comment below about how rankings aren't the only thing that matters, but sales as well. Duke Nukem: Forever scored very poorly with most critics (we have yet to review it on our site so we can't judge it) but sold pretty well, does that make it a good game? Sales are a lackluster way of judging how a game is because a great deal of people buy games that are well marketed, even if it's a poor game.

I don't think people are getting the fact that hes not comparing the two games saying ones better than the other, hes comparing the multiplayer in the games saying which one works more effectively as a multi-player component. he has the right to compare Demon Souls multiplayer-ish component, to MAG or Warhawk. simply for the fact that hes addressing effectiveness of the MP element in each game.

I think its a good article because of the exigence; HE WANTS PEOPLE TO STOP JUST PLAYING COD AND RECOGNIZE THERE ARE OTHER GAMES IN THIS WORLD

Im a long time CoD player and have invested a lot of time in the past few days for the UC3 beta. Currently at level 24 and have unlocked mostly everything you can. I think the beta is great, but as a full time replacement for COD? the jury is still out for me and most of my friends on my list and in real life. Theres some issues with the party system and generally getting a group of friends together to play which bothered me a bit with the Beta. Hopefully those are fixed in the final release.

UC3 is a true beauty ... and one more thing, on a side note: ... what Ive realized in previous stories, an argument between COD and BF fanboys ... I see everyone beatin around bush instead of comin to main point.

Guys who are supporting BF3 is because of ... first, they have tried battlefield series before and they liked it and second most important is, these guys have been burn so many times by activision and treyarch ... that they are screamin that dont keep givin the developers your hard earned when they are not even workin towards new engine and keep releasin same COD game every year. Whereas BF3 is using new Frostbite 2 engine, where developers didn't just wasted their time sittin on their a$$ and releasin the same crap over.

In the End BF3 fanboys are tryin to put some sense into COD fanboys that give the money to deservin developers and dont just blindly keep give money to lazy a$$ developers ... plus they are sayin to try something new which obviously is gonna be 100 times better then COD.
AdmiralSnake  +   1216d ago
@DEADPOOLe

COD players doesn't care about BF3. What I hate about this damn site is the fact the you people try and call other players dumb because of what they choose to do with their Money.

If I decide to buy COD every single year and every single damn map pack because I enjoy it and it's fun to me then I don't see how you're trying to make me realize anything.

How about we all play and buy whatever we want and stop insulting people because of what they choose to purchase with their own money.

I don't see whats the problem with either COD or BF3. I just think that because people have a problem with Activision and despise COD themselves they try to get EVERYBODY..... to see their point of view....

Do I understand why people hate COD ??? Yes. Do I understand why the fanboys are constantly mentioning COD in their mouth or trolling the articles ? Absolutely not...

On Topic.... this article is dumb... Uncharted 3 is a TPS shooter and isn't related to COD at all.

Funny, a couple of days ago, I remembered reading comments in u3 beta articles saying things like "Uncharted 3 beta is NOTHING like CoD", and similar statements to that effect, with those comments getting high amounts of agrees and very small amounts of disagrees.

Yet now I see comments saying that there are no BIG differences (as opposed to the previous "it's nothing like it" comments) in the two, and the comments are pretty highly voted up.

Listen n4g, I know it's the cool thing to hate on CoD right now (after all, it is a sh*t franchise which deserves to be hated), but can you at least be consistent and not be hypocrites?

Which is it? Is U3 beta very similar to CoD but a thousand times better, or is it nothing like CoD but a thousand times better?
cobra4  +   1216d ago
@vickers
I think his point is that the two GENRES are close enough for comparison. He's not drawing similarities to both games, he's simply stating that the type of game, in it's most basic form as a tps, is comparable to an fps in some ways
DreamTension  +   1216d ago
Sorry, but there are a hell of a lot more differences between COD and Uncharted MP besides their respective perspectives.

12 vs 12 and 5 vs 5

run and gun/camp or Cover based game play

Stay near your team and shoot anything that moves twice or intense battles heavily focused on teamwork

running/sprinting/hopping or platforming/climbing that is unique to less that 5% of online MP

While I do enjoy Uncharted's MP more than COD, I also think it's silly to compare them.

Edit: super stardust is also the same then right? Different perspective, going around shooting things.

a08andan  +   1216d ago
The difference is vast. A First-person perspective is often used in games where action is the focus, often high pace, where story doesn't matter that much. The third person perspective is used when the player has some kind of bond to his/her character, like most RPG:s and games with character progression. Just look at Call of Duty, compared to lets say Mass Effect. When the character itself is very important, then actually seeing said character is very important and therefor they choose a third-person-perspective. At least that is what I think^^

logically fps and tps are totally different generes. First person view compared to Third person view are TOTALLY different. U cant switch starcraft or warcraft into fps view and still call it a rts. thats what makes a genre a genre. If we classified every game where u shoot people with a gun as a fps, 95% of all games would be considered a fps.

UC is a gamers' game. CoD is a caaual game. sorry but many many games are out wether AAA, indie, Valve that puts CoD's MP to shame. problem is CoD doesnt take much brain power to play. and in this generation of streamlining games to where the brainless can figure out whats going on in MP, well, you know where im going.

To be honest although it is good that COD is losing some of it's dominance and that the multiplayer share is getting spread a little more evenly.... this whole COD hate and trying to "beat" COD thing has gotten really old......

It is about time COD lost the top spot purely as it's good for gaming as a whole.... but there are plenty of people who still love the game, and there is more than enough room for lot's of good multiplayer games including COD!

I think it's time to move past the COD bashing as much as it's time to move past the COD addiction....

How do you think Indiana Drake is going to do this November against MW3...lol

The gaming media means next to nothing. It's great that they think Uncharted looks like a movie...o_O...and that Drake will make a nice poster child for all things that are nice in the gaming world but EVERYBODY knows who the " big dogs " are that ND talks about WANTING to be like.

Have a vote tomorrow with the BUYING public who pay full price for their games, who they think is the best GOTY...it won't be Uncharted. I doubt Uncharted would be in top ten.

So hold onto your trophy while Activision/treyarch/sledgehamm er/infinity ward hold on to the Porches, Ferrari's and mansions that building a successful franchise gives you...oh yeah, it's the marketing...O_o

so U2 can keep the awards, the other games have a huge following and they are enjoying playing their games while a very small and select few jump on forums and spew hate and post how they hate what's CoD.

@ inside_out

It has nothing to do with opinion and who buys the game.

You ask any logical, sane, real gamer in the world who has played both Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2/Black Ops will tell you which is the better game. And don't conveniently forget the single-player campaign like you always do.

Uncharted is outsold "50 to 1"? How does that matter when judging quality? Justin Bieber sells millions of albums... need any more proof?

Not only will the campaign be much better and more memorable than Modern Warfare 3's (and that is based on the E3 demo), but the multiplayer will be in the same league. So overall package... it would probably go to Uncharted 3.

Hey we know you're a Call of Duty fanboy, but get real. Nothing has ever been about what is more popular. Shadow of the Colossus - one of the greatest games of all time - sold little over 1 million!

2. hardcore games = Ps3 exclusives?
MaxXAttaxX  +   1216d ago

I guess marketing and media hype have nothing to do with it, right?
People will go out and buy a COD just because they heard everyone plays it and how cool it is.

As an example. WiiSports is extremely popular and successful sales wise. Is it one of the best games ever?
baodeus  +   1216d ago
So if they heard everyone plays it and how cool it is, but how does that not make it a good game if everyone like it (excluding marketing for now, which i do think play a lot in how much game sell)?

I think there are a lot of misconception between quality and quantity. How about this, quality = rating and quantity = sell.

CoD: rating 94, sell ~16-18 millions
UC: rating 96, sell ~4 million

So CoD rating is really good (0.2 behind UC2), and the sell numbers is also outrageously high (meaning people liked it and play it a lot), so based on that data, can u explain why it isn't a good game?
JokesOnYou  +   1216d ago
@DigitalRaptor,
"You ask any logical, sane, real gamer in the world who has played both Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2/Black Ops will tell you which is the better game."

-I loved UC2 campaign, didn't like the multiplayer, don't remember the last time I touched UC2, Black Ops campaign was very much enjoyable but not a huge standout from other FPS, I love MW2 & Black Ops multiplayer and I still can easily come home from a hard days work and burn through 3-4hrs of BO multiplayer without blinking, so I guess I MUST BE ILlogical, INsane, UNreal gamer from ANOTHER world.(according to you) lol, NO I just like both games but IF I absolutely had to choose to ONLY BUY 1 it would be BO, because I know I will play it for at least the next 8-9mo.

"Uncharted is outsold "50 to 1"? How does that matter when judging quality? Justin Bieber sells millions of albums... need any more proof?"

-I said it before and I'll say it again, there is no >>1<< barometer for judging quality, quality is synonmous with VALUE, excellence, worth, success, etc= Its always going to be subjective, so either we just settle on "theres no which is better, its all a matter of opinion" OR we actually accept that there ARE some >>Key Factors<< that most rational people understand legitimizes a product as having value or quality. -But you have to be mature enough to remove your emotions and make an effort to be objective for that.

SALES ARE INDEED A DEFINING CHARACHTERISTIC OF QUALITY, of course there are clear examples of products that sold well for a short period of time but in retrospect are generally thought of as a >>FAD<<. On the other side of course there are a very few products that the consensus recognizes their quality/value even though they were not a commercial success. That still does not discount that from a pure statistical guage, that the vast majority of products generally thought of as having high quality typically ALMOST ALWAYS have sold very well >>AND continue to do so over a long period, not just a 1 hit wonder. There are always exceptions to the rule but that does NOT defeat the rule. Thats just called life.

I mean seriously where will the hate end? Now suddenly COD is the Beiber of the gaming industry, lol according to who? Then same folks who trashed every review/media site known to man, throw out UC2 awards/accolades(well deserved) but conveniently don't apply the same logic that they use with COD sales=Bieber sales does not= quality, but Bieber has won tons of awards including Artist of the Year from the American Music Awards, yet UC2 awards=Bieber awards, so of course UC2 is quality but not COD.

Its simple if you don't like COD franchise fine(I didn't like COD WaW much) but trying to convince everybody else you know whats best for them is just BS fanboy talk. Generally speaking ANY product that has a combination of HIGH Sales, HIGH Praise(Awards/Ratings) & HIGH Traffic(Consistent Use/Repeat Customers) it is no doubt a quality product by any reasonable measure, absent your *personal opinion. In other words there is no way any game, movie, song, brand etc can CONSISTENTLY achieve all 3 without having QUALITY/VALUE that consumers WANT, and to say that "its just marketing" is false, many bad products with high budget marketing campaigns fail(ask micro & sony), to say that its because "its easy" is false, tons of easy shooters have been played and forgotten about, every thing is just an excuse to downplay COD and NOT give credit where credit is due= devs developed a very accessible game withing a very popular genre thats very fun to play socially. My bad for the long post.

If Uncharted 2 had released in 2008 or 2010, it would have had a small fraction of those GOTY awards. Naughty Dog got lucky and released in a year with barely any competition. Uncharted 3 has much smaller chances to win in 2011 because there are actually other contenders, unlike in 2009.

@shinigo

exactly, quality and quantiy isn't the same thing, but when the game got both rating and sell, there got to be something about it right?

CoD is not a bad game (i hate fps so it doesn't mean anything to me, but it doesn't mean other will think like me), but based on data wise (fact), it is no where near as bad as people on n4g made it out to be. It is also fact that CoD is more popular, especially online MP with high rating (again only 0.2 behind UC2? c'mon really, 0.2 make such a big differences) as well. U guys make it sound like CoD is a terrible game like 0.3 rating or something. And for once, a lot of games now a day are trying to dethrone CoD MP, by employing similar modes or gameplays as CoD, so what is the reason behind that?

If CoD is that bad, it wouldn't be dominating both psn and xlive online mp right now still when UC2/KZ2/3/MAG should have taken that spot instead. Am i just imagining things or am I misinformed according to a few small fries pro Sony peep on n4g?

Again, i ask for explanation why CoD is a bad game, and none of u guys can give me some adequate explanation with something to back that up. How about showing me something please, cause it is getting boring here.

YodaCracker  +   1216d ago
"hereas the 360 only has 2 games out this year... And ones a racing game..."

The 360 has HUNDREDS of games releasing this year, far more than the PS3 when you count all the exclusives, multiplatforms, PC/360 games, Kinect, Arcade, indie, and so on. ALL games compete with each other in sales, not just exclusives. Two of Uncharted 3's biggest competitors will be Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim, not Resistance and other PS3 exclusives.

This whole thing about the PS3 having more exclusives so each one sells less is truly one of the most pathetic damage control methods I have ever seen. As though the 360's exclusives like Gears and Halo only compete with each other and not COD and BF. Well, I guess it's true what they say; desperate times call for desperate measures.

in that regard thers less the 20 major ones to this year
note i said major

xbla give indi devs a good shot at making a tile something i respect microsoft for but there not heavy hitters

cod is stale nothing has changed since modern warfare 1 .
its still the same gameplay and the same pattern graphics sound lighting physics have all improved but thats belayign the fact that modernwarfare 3 will be effectivly the same game as 1 i feel that fps has really reached its limit with what it can do and will start to see diminishing returns as other games inovate in areas cod cant

I think some people like the articles where "a few people complaining about the beta grow into every PS3 owner in the world hating it" better.

man these articles are lame

I thought U2 was funner than COD. If they kept the same gameplay with more guns, boosters and customization, it would've been perfect. Not a fan of the U3 changes.

To many COD fanboys are afraid to try new stuff. I've got friends who bought a ps3 years ago and still only own COD titles. Hopefully sony can market UC3 the right way to make those COD fanboys try it. Even me convincing them other games are great, they still stick with COD...sad.

Why is it sad, they like to play COD, I got friends on both XBOX and PS3 who only play COD but they still go out and buy other games but they enjoy COD Year in Year out.
consolez_FTW  +   1216d ago
I said in my comment some of my friends buy nothing but COD. They don't even try any other game, that's sad.

And cod will outsell uc3 by 4 million on PS3 alone

Sad, VERY VERY SAD, but true ;(

Hmm
I'm starting to like the UC3 beta but it's no where as much fun to play as COD imo.
FlareDReborn  +   1216d ago
@first poster CoD still sucks.
Beastradamus  +   1216d ago
Leave it to the fanboys to compare two games that have no comparison. Uncharted should have stayed Uncharted is the bottom line for me.

UC3 will dethrone UC2... moving on.
maniacmayhem  +   1216d ago
Wow, wasn't there just an article on n4g saying that U3 should stop being like CoD and the brigade went into a fit saying its not.

Now it is like CoD and now CoD is magically dethroned? Suuuuure.

So many articles love to kill whats on top. First it was BF3 now it's U3. Just goes to show how many haters are out there when you're the king.

wow that's a pretty bold statement

i was worried for a minute, from the title i thought that uc3 might be like COD in some way. COD has become like the farmville of FPS ie everyone plays it but it's shit
Thoreau  +   1216d ago
i have posted this time and time again and taken so many disagrees but Uc3 game mechanics have shifted towards a fps direction. I meant this to say that i do not engage the enemy with my avatar, i engage the enemy from the white dot in the middle of the screen. the characters move sluggish. the climing is become clucky. the fluidity of Uc2 is gone. I enjoy the new aiming system, but why does everything else have to suffer. I approach the corners and pathways via ads, not in traditional Uc universe gameplay, but more with a kz3/cod type of aiming mentality.

my psn-southpaw79...i get off of work early tonight, just to play more Uc3 beta.

i'll take on all antagonizers.
thugbob  +   1216d ago
The way it is now the UC3 MP takes skill. In UC2 people moved to fast, sprinting and rolling/dodging away a soon as someone shot them from the back. Also in UC2 people would just fire shots and then quickly closed in and melee people. Now melee is a last resort. My only complaints about the beta is that my characters move sluggish and that the PLAYBACKS suck.

Funny you said kz3/cod because they both play like each other. KZ2 was the polar opposite of CoD, but KZ3 and CoD hold hands. The way you you approach corners in UC3 is the way you should do it. It's realistic.

Uncharted should add a FPS MODE, Just for online, also zombies, just for online. Add more destruction and it's got everything covered.
Mr Tretton  +   1216d ago
You're what's wrong with everything.

xtremegamerage  +   1216d ago
Mr tretton, bow to your bosses, they think you stink bad atm.

Uncharted would have broke 10million easily if it were FPS.

But with the story mode it has, plus climbing etc.

I don't like 3rd person view online, but i enjoy it in sp.

It'll be the same as the other uncharted's for me.

Play it a few times sp, sell quickly.
