From PS3 Fanboy: "One item that did stand out in the weekly PS Store update was the Uncharted demo. We want to know what you guys thought of it. Be honest, as it is always the best policy when dealing with the long arm of the law."
it's a great month for gamers....
i was taken to a new level of graphic fidelity and game play. akin to the day i played Gears on my friends xbox 360 for the first time. break through graphics, breakthrough AI, and breakthrough game play. unmatched fun, and totally unparalleled animations, completely fluid and believable, the most emotional and grippingly enthralling characters i've ever seen since Heavenly Sword, you cant help but be amazed at how the believable the characters are, you see every emotion, and can't help but feel it with them, you become frantic when gun play gets out of hand and when you flinch, it's not like the generic 3rd person shooters even so like gears... you dont really flinch when the locus are firing much. it's almost perfection, making it only longing to have more weight in feeling a bit heavy. drake some what feels a little floaty. still it's amazing, and breakthrough in almost breakthrough in every way. and the Story is just amazing and and very cinematic. and the water physics and rendering is just amazing and traversing through water looks and feel like you are traversing through water with amazingly accurate physics and weight displacement, and animation match completely. just mind-blowing this is the PS3's game to show what it's truly capable of showing of graphics and game play, story telling and being addictive much the way gears was for the 360, amazing, and has AAA stamped all over it. while ratchet was awesome and was great at leveraging the PS3's hardware, and COD4 shows 3rd devs how to do multiplats for the PS3, this is totally owning everyone much the same way gears owned devs for the 360 for most of it's first year, that is untill lair's graphics showed up then HS and THEN ratchet, and COD4 and NOW This. and killzone2 will do just that but thats next years game.
Well to be honest I was really waiting for this game but I was disappointed. I have that feeling that everything's too scripted, especially the environments (tree walls, etc....) and I thought the gunplay was kinda boring
yes i agree, I'm a huge playstation guy but i was definitely disappointed after playing it. It looked great but didn't have that open feeling i expected it to have. Plus the controls i though were horrible and the game play wasn't all that fun.
looks like alot of ppl liked it XD i know i did
I liked it also. The story really drug me in. I just wish that I had the whole game so I could continue the story. It was crazy how they just faded the demo out unlike R&C who left you with a cliff hanger. I can't make up my mind on what looked better Uncharted or CD:4.
calling it terrible. Now, I do believe that some people may think the game is terrible... But no one into adventure/shooters will think its terrible. Sports fans will probably think there is too much variety..
lol, comment accentuated by the face that there's a R&C commercial on right now.
It is hands down the best next gen experience so far. Easily. This is, as I said in my blog, not a game.. it's an experience. Gears of War was a game. R&C wasa game... Uncharted is an experience. It isn't any 1 thing that makes it spectacular... it's everything brought together. The acting, the scripting, the graphics, the gameplay... the setting. The tone. Everything is just spot on for the 1st time here. The only other time I thought or felt this way was back in 1997 when I 1st got my hands on Resident Evil on the playstation. I thought it couldn't get better. I was immersed 100%. This is the only other time that's happened and it was a demo. "ha"
I couldn't agree with you more.
i still say your a 360 fanboy gamesblow the things you said to sony on there blog just proves how lame you are
I'm Gamesblow, man. Well known, super smash hit successful forum poster. 98% approved, Jackson. You better make sure it's even me to begin with. I have like 4 people running around parading like they're me. Go to Gamefaqs and you'll see someone named Gameblows. That's not me. It's someone trying to be me. They fail miserably at it too. I have people messaging me all the time on myblogsite about seeing me somewhere else in the videogame posting realm. 8x's out of 10, it's not me. I only come here, my blog and the Sony forums now, cause I've been banned everywhere else for my 100% unbiased behavior.
Yes, very very awesome. Especially the punch animations, I took so many people out so many ways, and the difficulty seems perfect. Hard is just that-hard.
Freaking Amazing the best demo I ever played.... xbots are gonna say this game is horrible cuz well they won't be able to play...
why ppl bash mass effect, oh well
honestly this game looks amazin ... dont own a ps3 and havent played the demo but so far nothing but good praise is wat i hear...and about those xbot comments...think about how many time you sony fanoboys tried to belittle an excellent xbox game .. bioshock (now ps3 aswell), halo3 all this talk about halo2.5 (1 million unique players per day record breaking sales and almost 6 million copies sold according to vgcharts) and what next Mass effect..anyway all i;m sayings people who are really down to earth can appreciate a good game and this is Definetly one to buy if u own a ps3 i would love one but i dont have the funds ( i do but cant afford to blow 500 ..and i;m not paying 399 for no backwards compatibility but thats me)..im out
It doesn't take a very good game on ps3 to be considered "awesome" by sony fanboys.
Standards?. Which gamers bought a console that has a 33% faliure rate?.
This game rocks and would be a day one purchase if not for assassins creed. I'll beat Assassins Creed then on to Uncharted, or vice versa.
The graphics, and all that was really cool. But what was crazy were the movements. It was all so realistic. He didn't "float" from one ledge to another, he actually stumbled when you jumped from on boulder to another. It was all so believable. Even the AI is incredible. First time through the computer hid behind rocks, and fired shots where they though i was behind a wall. The second time through, rushed, and the person with the shotgun fired shots over my head. If you played through this 10 times I dont think it would work out exactly the same any time. You really get a sense that your playing against a real person, or people. It is really an amazing experience.
it was the best freakin game i ever played and it really put meaning into the slogan play beyond
The demo has made this a must buy for me. I'll pick this up along with Mass Effect and then I'm cut off for the year.
assassins creed and mass effect will have to do for now
Good game, playing as an average person, no jacked up soldiers... nice environments, nice visuals, great animations, damn good AI, like how u cud shoot a man when he was about to throw a grenade and it'll drop and explode.
Yeah that was when I realize how good the AI was. It was like I was playing a Multiplayer real life game for a moment. I shot a guy in the hand and he dropped a grenade and blew himself up. He didn't just drop it. I saw me shoot him in the hand he grabbed his hand and shook it like oh $hit that hurts, then he tried to get away when he realized he dropped the grenade but it was too late. Way too cool. This game is going to be Awesome and with all of my favorite attributes of the best games with alot of new things also. The gun play and fighting is something I really like and works very well. i was trying to decide if I should get this game first or Assassins Creed but when I played the Uncharted Demo I knew I would be getting it first. They really should of had a demo for assassins creed but since they didn't they just made my decision easy because Naughty Dog came through.
i liked it...although i would hope so since this is why i got a PS3.
A fantastic little experience.
The animations, the storyline (as far as I know), the voice acting, the art-design...it's just PERFECT! The gameplay can be either Ghost Recon or GOW...depending on your skill level.
Have both systems (360, Ps3) and would make either console proud. Ill be picking it up for sure. Cover System is great (much improved from gears's vacuum) Graphics (no need for explanation) Dialog (it was actually funny like everyday funny) Story (seems interesting) Puzzles (hope theres more to them other than the pillars but i imagine so) Fine white girl - Hey couldnt hurt :) Its a great game and can not wait!
I forgot how good the AI was. The guys run around things to get to you, like in F.E.A.R. It's even more agressive than that though!
It looks awesome. :)
Absolutely loved it, Very easy to get into. Most intuitive controls I've used in a long while. This is gonna be first day purchase for me. Can't wait.
That extra level of difficultie of hitting the enemies makes this game ttat much better. Its not like other games where they can take more hits but its actually being able to hit them. They move, they duck, they dodge bullets like crazy, and then they take cover again. Being that the game will be, what, 12 hours long which will make the purchase worth every penny. Day one purchase for me.
Yeah man. The enemies really try to creep up on you like they are real. Best Enemy AI I have ever seen. These dudes are tough too kill.
AFTER I DIED ONCE I SAID TO MYSELF "ALRIGHT,THAT DUDE THAT GOT ME WILL JUMP DOWN FROM THE VINE,HEAD LEFT,THEN START SHOOTING,SO I BETTER HAVE MY GUN POINTED TO THE LEFT TO GET HIM EARLY". I DIED TWICE AFTER THIS,AS AFTER MY 3RD DEATH ON THE SAME SPOT IT HIT ME:THE A.I IS ACTUALLY INTELLIGENT(EXCUSE THE PUN). I WAS SMILING THROUGHOUT MY ENTIRE RUN THROUGH IT,THE LAST TIME I HAD A SMILE ON MY FACE FOR MORE THAN 15 MINUTES IT WAS DURING A RERUN OF BARNEY THE DINOSAUR BACK WHEN I WAS 3.
next to HS. It blows the way Gears of War looks, *out of the water.
I think HS is the best game on any platform till date UNCHARTED follows closeby and ofcourse not to even mention Ratchet -- PIXAR on ps3
Great as well here. To be 100% honest I was not entirely a fan of the shooting system. It felt like there were bad guys, in places, just for the sake of having bad guys. Grenades also didn't take out as much area as I felt they should. Having said that. The environments can't be beat. The story looks good as hell. The character animations were spot on. Controls were very tight. The pace was good. Puzzles(It was a short demo) were good. Scale I have not gotten a very good sense of yet. The plane in the intro part going to the island was good but I wish I could have seen a big environment. I know they have them... Would have been cool. Day 1 purchase for sure no doubt and just from the demo a possible GOTY contender for sure. I can't wait for this game. It really can't come soon enough. I played 1 time for fun and 1 time to look around. In looking around I was amazed at how well every detail was done. Grass moves with you and everything is great. Very impressed all around. Moss looks wet and everything feels alive in some way. I will not ever say any game is perfect apart from a very small few imho. This game looks to be high 9's for sure though. It really is hard to tell anything from a demo though =P
It was a fun demo for sure, but personally I'm having too good a time with Ratchet to worry about this one right now. Single coolest factor: you go in the water, and actually get wet!
I Played it on Normal ..THen Played on Hard..And then I played on easy jut to see all the diffrent fighting stille...This game has felling in it..When you play this game you can't stop yourself from beaing a part of this Great Adventure.... One Of this Years Best Game...
Damn near sh*t myself over this game lol. I was smoking a cig and when i got shot because i didnt see the guy turn around i dropped my cig and said damn very very great game. This is being preordered as we speak lol. :)
Gameplay - awesome Controls - awesome Graphics - awesome Sound - awesome Voice acting - awesome All awesome, but the standout is the AI. I've now played the demo 5 times and it's never once been the same fire fights against the enemies thus never the same game, there's always some variable, be it a mistake on their part or possibly a change in tactics (they take cover rather than running forward and flanking you, or you hold back rather than trying to make the next wall). This is what next gen gaming is about, a change in experience. Something Mass Effect, Uncharted and Assassin's Creed are all going to do.
As an addition, kudos to Naughty Dog for making the demo region free for people outside of the US downloading from the US store, even though they're under no obligation too and it is technically against Sony's T&Cs. They're probably just happy with the feedback the game has recieved.
day one purchase for all PS3 owners is a must.
Never really heard much about this game.But i have to say this demo blew my socks OFF!!!! I can't wait to play the whole game i've never seen anything like this.Not even HS which was a great game by the way.But the graphics on this blow it out of the water.I can't get over how his clothes get wet and dry as you play.Also how his shirt gets wrinkles as you move.WOW can't wait to buy this game.FYI i own all 3 consoles and again i never seen anything like this.
IT IS,QUITE FRANKLY,A GAME THAT I WILL BUY. I HAVE PLAYED RATCHET(DEMO).I HAVE GEARS.I HAVE PLAYED COD4.AND I CAN PUT UNCHARTED ON TOP OF THE CONSOLE GRAPHICAL BEASTS LADDER WITHOUT A DOUBT IN MY MIND,I REALLY MUST STRESS THIS POINT:YOU HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED TRUE NEXT-GEN GAMING IF YOU HAVENT PLAYED UNCHARTED:DRAKES FORTUNE. YOU KNOW THE FEELING YOU GET WHEN YOU FIRST HOLD DOWN (A) WHILE WALKING IN GEARS,AND YOU SEE THE SHAKY CAM EFFECT AND GO "WOW"?UNCHARTED GIVES YOU THE SAME FEELING,AND YOU DONT HAVE TO PRESS A SINGLE BUTTON. 9.8/10.THIS IS THE GAME THAT WILL CHANGE 2007.
Caps lock is cruise control for awesome ;)
I thought it was flipping AWESOME! Bravo Naughty Dog!
One of the most amazing, stunning, shocking & WOW ME experience ever on my life as my gamer HEAVEN YEAH!!!. One day purchase over here*
this the best AI i have ever played
FIRST: the best detail put into any game EVER. the way the shirt wrinkles, the way how each rock will have him stumble a specific way. the way his clothes get dirty or get wet. the way only specifics parts of his body get wet if depending on where the water hit. the different facial expressions he gets when he's in battle. and also, did anybody notice, he runs alittle faster and can jump alittle higher when in the heat of battle. i love the way he dodges and flinches for cover. SECOND: the voice acting is top notch, the things they say is realistic and not forced like some games, its something people would do and say in real life, the motion capture was excellent, in the plane crash when drake was putting on his parachute was done excellent. THIRD: the cover system is ALMOST perfect, i love jumping from cover to cover without having to much fustration. the controls are perfect, there is no delay or too much sensitivity or anything like that. FOURTH: the AI is right up there with the best of um. i mean i've played the demo over 30 times already and i always get flanked from different levels. there very hard to hit sometimes,espicially when there running. FIFTH: GAMETRAILERS doesnt do justice to this games graphics, its some of the best graphics i've seen this gen. SIXTH: the gameplay is nothing like tomb raider at all judging by this demo. i mean it has similarity's as far as exploring but this game has sooooo much action. it has so many different combo's i find myself doing different ones after countless times of playing it. the gunfights are heart pumping and intense. SEVENTH:the only really MINOR annoying thing is sometimes when im trying to get off of leaning up agaisnt a wall, it takes him longer then i would like. and the other thing is, there are quite a few glitches in this game but im sure thats just because of the demo. and the barrels that blow up arent the best but its nothing serious. EIGHTH: OVERALL the game is a master piece and imoh the best action adverture game since gears of war 2. with that being said, anybody with a ps3 thats into action adventures should pick up this game so to make sure naughty dog and sony have enough money to make the second one. this is definetely a game of the year contender. (sidenote) did anybody notice how if you walk in the water that depending on how much you move in the water, the water waves a certain distance. if you run in the water, the waves of the water go far but if you just barly move, they go just alittle bit. again, the detail in this game is unmatched. oh yea and sound is top notch
I FULLY AGREE,I CANNOT MENTION HOW MANY TIMES I HAVE PLAYED GEARS AND SAID TO MYSELF "GAH,WOULD A 6 FOOT+ BEAST WITH RAZOR SHARP TEETH REALLY YELL ''SMOOOOKE OUUUUUT'' IN THE SAME WAY A HUMAN WOULD YELL ''DINNEEERSS REEEADY''?"
@IGNFTW, First, I'm not disagreeing with you or anything like that, but I recommend to lay off the Red Bull before posting. ;-) Hey, I'm glad that a whole lot of people got their minds blown away (NOT literally speaking) by this game.
... I was in awe of the whole experience.
It's a great demo, gives you a good feel for how the game plays without spoiling the story at all. Leaves you wanting more, wanting to buy the game as a good demo should.
- the AI was too smart, they kept killing us and flanking us - the graphics are comparable to Halo 3 (yeah right!) - cover system is better than GoW, maybe too much better *shifty eyes* - animations are too fluid, we enjoy gliding, sliding, and glitching - this game is having an identity crisis (I just had to :P) EDIT: I'll dL this demo when I get my PS3 this Friday ^__^
"It's so awesome it makes our lives pale in comparison and it is therefore bad." Credit goes to someone on N4G.
Get those attach-rate numbers up!
It makes me sad ,cos I know this wont get GotY. This game will be Underrated, not overrated. Not enough Space Marines and Aliens with glowing blood. It a shame too because it looks to be a better shooter than Gears of War, a better platformer then Prince of Persia and better adventure/acting/graphics/ than anything we've seen yet. Oh well, if it doesn't get the critical success it deserves, lets just hope it gets the financial success it deserves. PS, love the grenades. Was worried for about 1 second and then it just bcame 2nd nature. Switch, aim, throw, switch. You can have you guns back out and shooting at them as your grenade flushes them out of cover. And the first time I blew up a crumbling wall they had been hiding behind I just cacked myself.
I'm a gamer that loves the first-person experience more than any other genre. My favorite so far has been the prince of persia series. I've been looking forward to Uncharted and Assassin's Creed for a long long time. When I played the demo for Uncharted I was completely blown away. I think I've played the demo about 10 times since the release. I can't wait for this game to come out. Assassin's creed Nov. 13th!!!
ya know. thats what i mean by FORCING DIALOUGE. i mean is it really that hard to make realistic dialouge. people say things that are just out of this world.lol. for gods sake just think of something that you would REALLY SAY.lol but i guess thats just too hard for writers
i mean, why buy a 600 dollar or 500 or 400 or w/e system and NOT BUY GAMES. its only because i think alot of people with ps3's HAVE 360's and at first most games looked and played better on it. also 360 has in game xmb and i know i would always get a game on 360 if i had that. and then they have achievements so people like that stuff and just get the 360 version. and people also like rumble so thats another factor. when march comes though, expect a much higher attach rate because ps3 will have in game xmb, it will have rumble, the games will look just as good if not better on the ps3, and we will have trophys(achievements) too. just wait and see. and also most the games that came out on the ps3 werent THAT special with the exception of rachet but thats a game that only a select few get and i dont think that that audience has ps3 yet. uncharted though WILL SELL. i mean take resistance for example
There is a quality difference right now, even though that difference is rapidly shrinking as the months pass.
i'm glad your talking some sense and not being a fanboy...either way PS will have its prime & 360 owners will enjoy the good games that they get. i don't believe its that people are not buying games, the reason why games are not selling good on the PS3 is cause not a lot of people are buying PS3's. cause everybody is talking down on it & its too underated, which makes me mad, cause it isn't. it just need in-game XMB then the rest is cool. All i gots to say is that i'll be supporting every great game on the PS3, nuff said......From a very happy PS3 owner...PS TAG:C_SoL
Best Dirty Shirt since the Original Diehard. I really cant give a better review than that.
Hahaha, it's no surprise you have so many bubbles!
Tell Bloodmask that. He thinks I have more than 1 account. And thanks, have a bubble.
