This year will will see the culmination of what the adventure genre has been striving for. Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is scheduled to release on November 1st of this year, and the adventure genre will never be the same.
Well even if it doesn't set the bar then Uncharted 2 will still be the one to beat
They are all so good! Absolutly one of the best adventure franchises ever.
they didnt set the bar already?
uncharted 3 will be better then 2 graphically and with gameplay and the store line will be alot better to uncharted 3 will set the bar not just for adventure games, but for games in genral
how can you say that?
I agree with that although I'm going disagree with you for saying earlier "anime sucks, it's for weird people" as I wanted to disagree with you more.
@andreasx Why cant he say it? It's his opinion and he is entitled to it. For me personally Uncharted 2 is overall my favorite game of this generation and one of my favorites of all time. "If" Uncharted 3 surpasses 2 like 2 did the original? Than why not say it. It doesn't mean it will be a fact, only an opinion. Although there is no denying how incredible Uncharted 2 was / is. It was the most decorated / award winning game in years.
have all been done before and some done nicely but none done the way ND has done UC series. it has great story different and beautiful settings graphics wise its one of the best series online is improving co-op is nice whenever a new action adventure games come out it will be compared to UC series so yes i do agree the bar was et with UC2 and this will just raise it even more. when we thought ND had done the best with UC we saw the cruise ship level at e3 and the water affects and our jaws dropped one more time ND are just very talented devs its that simple
as far as my opinion goes, uncharted 2 is unbeatable right now in terms of tps and adventure games. and since its the most awarded game in HISTORY, alot of people agree with me.
Cheater! That is like saying that BF3 will be the best FPS ever because it won the most e3 awards. oh... wait...
Cannot wait for Uncharted 3
me either. I love the multiplayer of this game, thats why I will buy it right away. Im going to go to crap subway to get a code for early access to the multiplayer in October. its getting pretty close, but I wonder what we will have to do at subway to get the access code. I hope I only have to get one of those mediocre sandwiches.
F*** the Multiplayer! I want it for the singleplayer!
I am going to play this game so hard. Ps3 has the best exclusives
I love it when Uncharted is referred to as "Adventure" or "Action/adventure" above third-person shooter. Drake is there to go on an adventure, make discoveries and his story is told in a very personal way. When you compare that to games that are just third-person shooters it's because the main character is there to kill things.
I agree, it has to be. I spend more time searching and exploring than shooting people in the face.
Part 1 had an adventure feel due to the setting and story, but part 2 was an action game. Part 1 got praised for being the best treasure hunter game ever and while part 2 was considered better by them (not me), they barely even mentioned the treasures. Both are too linear to be considered adventure games.
i mean you cant really adventure outside your linear path so i dont see it as setting the bar. outstanding 3rd person action game, but adventure, well no.
You're thinking of the "Sandbox" genre. Adventure just means you go on "adventures". Adventure movies are also linear because they follow a script but it is still considered as an "Adventure" due to the type of locations they visit.
*cues Indiana Jones theme*
true but uncharted in only an adventure game in story not gameplay which makes the big difference. movies are ALWAYS liner so its a tough comparison. when i think of adventure games i think of going on an actual adventure, backtracking, exploring, clue finding, puzzle solving, etc. uncharted definitely encompasses some of those feature but is by no means setting any bar for any adventure game. if they are the standard to be reached be prepared to play more linear games with 1 path being called "grand adventures." thats something i hope to never see. multiple locations do no equal an adventure game. its an amazing action game/cinematic action experience. nothing more nothing less.
Bang! Bang! Drake shot you down.. Bang! Bang! You hit the ground.. Bang! bang! That deadly sound.. bang! Bang! Uncharted owns the crown;)
Bang! Bang! Drake sees a clown.
Am I the only guy that for some strange reason likes Uncharted: Drake's Fortune slightly more then Uncharted 2? Please don't reply saying I'm crazy or something it's just my opinion and please if you don't agree press disagree just so I can see the ratio of the number of agrees and the number of disagrees.
Overall i think Uncharted 2 is better cause of the improvements to gameplay. But Uncharted 1 did have one of the greatest villians ever. "Nobody messes with Eddy Raja" - Classic
Got to agree he's the only villian in any story that I like and I kinda wish he continued to be in the Uncharted games. @Ares90 I guess it's because it's the first PS3 game I played and I just like the characters better. Also I like the jungle environment a lot. That's pretty much it.
I'm not going to do anything, but could you explain why?
I agree, I preferred the setting and story of Drakes Fortune.
Only fair, since the bar was set by Uncharted 2.
Somebody disagreed with you? I'm curious as to why.
They are douche's obviously.
Or they have differing opinions... No, that can't be. Anyone who disagrees with your taste in games simply must be a douche.
So why the hell did I get disagrees? For being curious as to why someone disagreed with Bathyj? Also, differing opinions only counts when it comes to opinion. Unfortunately, it's all but an established fact that Uncharted 2 set the bar. You can say that the Earth is flat all you want, but you don't have to circumnavigate it to know that's a fallacy.
I disagreed because the only bar Uncharted 2 raised was console graphics IMO. If it had average graphics and a bit less polish I don't think it would have been anywhere near as praised. I'm sick of Uncharted 2 fanboys, I thought U2 was good, but after months of hearing "It's the best game of the year, and if you disagree your'e an XBOX fanboy" I now think of it as an overrated POS. And I know that's not true, but i'm just sick of the praise. It wasn't that good. And before you call me a fanboy, I mostly play games on my PS3.
but the game was praised for more than that. - Animation system for Drake and enemies was awesome - Voice acting was one of the best EVER - Facial animation was spot on - Story was good (not the best) but well designed and thought out - First game I've played that lets you play through the cinematic moments, not watch them on a cutscene or a QTE - Very likeable, humorous characters. (Their lifelike personalities was the first thing that caught my attention).
Sorry to disappoint you but SKYRIM will be a much better adventure game.. How can Uncharted 3 be setting the bar if you the game holds your hand the whole way? Skyrim will have more choices on what you do and an OPEN world...something Uncharted 3 will never have and don't even mention the graphics...
you fail to understand game genres and gameplay elements which set the two games apart but happen to be in the same league when it comes to quality or setting the bar. starting with the fact Skyrim is at heart an rpg, the leveling, abilities, open world, choices where as Uncharted is an action adventure-linear, fast paced (alot more running, chase and buildings falling apart sequences), cover based, shooter and modern setting and story. Its like differentiating between Lord of the Rings and Inception both amazing but very different. Not to mention the fact its very difficult to judge two games that you haven't played. Uncharted 2 out of 105 reviews averages-96 Oblivion out of 54 reviews averages-94 Rest assured, they are in the same league. Games that set standards in the industry.
Skyrim is a fantasy based role playing game. Adventure is a different category. Here's the definition - "The adventure genre, in the context of a narrative, is typically applied to works in which the protagonist or other major characters are consistently placed in dangerous situations, and a fictional character who lives by their wits and their skills is often called an adventurer." http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
I wouldn't consider Uncharted an adventure series. To me adventure games are the point and click exploration games, UC is more action than anything.
not really a fan of the series.
Congrats on clicking on this article then...
IMO Uncharted is the best exclusive on the PS3. Drake is the man.
