Gamer TV gave the much anticipated upcoming Ps3 title Uncharted: Drake's Fortune a perfect 5/5.
Hit the Jump for the Pro's and the con's.
They did not say that 9 hours was perfect for the game.They said the gameplay averaged out at 9 hours on Normal and not to play the game on EASY because it would ruin it. And they said the only replay value in the game was rewards, achievements and unlockables
They also said they wanted to play it again on hard, that sounds like replayability to me.
and then there's crushing :) and the AI is so good, you want to play it again.
great game play
great all around
5 out of 5 hands down
going back 2 find all unlockable and metals now
i just beat the game on normal and it was alot of fun.
there's also some big surprises and things you wouldn't expect. this definately isn't Tomb Raider.
i'll be playing it again for sure. but i got alot more to flip.
9 hours my ass I'm on 7.5 hour and only 66% done on hard. I'm also looking for the tresures while playing. This game is a 5/5 but it's not short, I'm loving this game.
Wow here I was thinking I made a comment on my personal opinion about the game but the xbot trolls have to disagree. I find it funn that they are pissed they didn't get this awesome game.
I am 60% done on hard and only 5 hrs into the game. I have been searching the areas for the treasures too. I am on level ten and have 28 i think...
me too, i'm at 39% and the timer clocks me in a bit over 5.5 hours (on Hard difficulty). but the reviewers usually rush to the end of the game without looking for anything but the quickest route to the finish line.
replay value is pretty good, have you seen some of the things you need to do to unlock some stuff? they aren't a walk in the park, dude.
this game deserves way more recognition than it's gotten.
its all bullshit. first people said Heavenly Sword was 5 hours long.Its actually about 8 to 9 hours so Uncharted is probably about 12 hours long or so.which is perfect
seems to be etter than assasins creed from what I see.
AC doesn't hold a candle to this beauty, this is an EASY 10 and GOTY contender.
I really do hate sand box games. but assassin's creed just stands above the rest, but uncharted. i'm about 7 hours into the game on normal and i haven't even reached 50 percent yet. so all these people calling it short must have played it on easy mod. it's freakin awesome and while i wouldn't give it a ten because i've noticed a hint of screen tear and a few texture pops from time to time, it's frame rates stay consistent, and it plays wonderfully, very gripping and entralling with believable characters, and great acting, amazing graphics, and outsatnding pacing and the treasure gives you something to do when playing. this game is worth a 9.5-9.8 tops, this game isn't perfect, but it's damn near perfect. damn near perfect indeed.
I agree with you on Assassins Creed i've been playing that game for a couple days now and it' a good game in it's own right...and I haven't experienced ne white screens bugs.or w/e..it's really a good game with a great story ..!!
I got Uncharted yesterday..i've played it for about 6hrs..im only at 38%..."im playing it on hard"...so IDK bout it beign short....and yes i've been saying that maybe reviewers rush play these games on easy..to meet deadlines...
As for the replay value...there's mirror mode in the game which means that ur second time playing through the game won't be the same experience...plus the achievements and unlockables....and the A.I..alone gives this game alot of replay value...
EDIT: is there a phantom disagree-er in here why does everyone with pro UNCHARTED comment got an disagree..!!
GOD %@#!...Where are you bastards getting this game?! I have to wait until 2pm tomorrow. :(
You have to ignore the disagrees man. It's just some bored retard.
^^ look, you yourself got an disagree. For what, would be very interesting to know.
I saw a couple BDs at my local Walmart, but cheap as I am, I have a 10% off coupon from Best Buy (expires 11/19) - but they don't have it yet! But if they don't have it by then, I'll buy it somewhere else...I really want that game...
This is my kind of game. I know it's perfect fit for adventure lovers.
might boom, I'm gonna be nice to diots for the first time in my life by just telling you that:
he did'nt confirm anything in that paragraph, plus he said it would be hard to port it,that's all
Man I heard M$ brainwashed their clients, but you took that theory to a whole new level...seriously, AHAHHAHA
Why is a 360 site recapping a gamertv review of a PS3 game? Weird.
i think they just wanted to say it had no replay value and was not that long in order to downplay it. But seriously y would they do that.
9 hours is good....and we are already seeing people at 7.5 hours with only 65 percent complete...
Uh perfect score means you can't give it cons, am I the only one who thinks this?
I know, there is no perfect game which is why I don't believe in giving 10s, there is always SOMETHING that can be improved. They gave out too many undeserving 10s this year.
5/5 is perfect, it operates on the .5 scale so every half of a point = 10%. 80% would be equal to 4/5 and 90% = 4.5/5. So they gave the game a pefect score yet listed cons which doesn't make sense. That's the reason I don't put too much stock into reviews other than using them as extensive previews.
Than tell that to all the people that gave Halo3, GoW, Mario Galaxy, etc Perfect Scores. There is no such thing as a perfect game, there never has been and there probably never will be. That doesnt stop people from giving 10's out like candy this year. I would give Uncharted a 9.5, Its the best Action/Adventure games I have played thus far in my life.
5/5 doesn't mean it's perfect, just over 80%.
I think it would equate to:
1 star = 1-20
2 star = 21-40
3 star = 41-60
4 star = 61-80
5 star = 81-100
I was wondering the same exact thing. A perfect score yet there were cons... Which would actually mean, it's not a perfect game... You see that a lot. Even with games that were given 10/10.
I think you have to look at it as the fact that no game has gotten 10's from every single review, therefore as a collective no game is really perfect so its ok to put cons down. The thing I really like about the average reviews for Uncharted is that none of them have been lower than 8/10 thus far and thats really impressive, that means every single review has been positive. Where as you look at Some other highly scored games they have a 6 or a few 7's thrown in.
It took me 13 hours to finish it.
P.S- Xbots, go play your Mass(crap) Effect and finish it in 15 hours(according to reviewers) and this is supposed to be RPG? Yeah DVD 9 limitations i guess.
Sony rules, giganotosaurus is crushing everything in its path! World domination over crapbox and Wiigay! Muahahahahahaha
what does this have to do with mass effect?? get a life....btw the side quests and the added crap you can do is what makes it an rpg but anyway this isnt want this thread is about...
Coo another good review for this game deff worth playn doubt ill buy it cuz the fact that it is a single player game and ill finish and be done but deff worth playing no matter what
Between Ratchet, Assasisn, and This game.
It seems Ill be pointing towards this game more.
But first I have to finish Graw 2 and COD 4
Done with Graw2 and CoD4 (well, yeah, easy mode, but I don't know, that's too arcade, I like Graw2 better - and it comes with almost (?) twice as many maps), R&C...have all my holo map pieces now, but lack one gold bold in a flight level. Need Uncharted really urgently...and will take a look into AC later (the videos look amazing, hope they'll have an update by then - game and firmware).
Uncharted is really amazing (just finished it, took about 10 hours on easy setting). This is probably the best single player game I have ever played on a computer or console. If asked to give this game a score, I would give it a *9.8*. The only really negative thing I have to comment about is the final fight (it is completly scripted, and might as well have just been a full on cutsceen).
would you play it on easy?
Im playing on hard first time through, CRUSHING is next...lol
I have a wife and daughter so I play games on easy, that way I have the ability to complete them. If I was single and didn't care about time invested I would play it on a much harder level.
I played CoD4 on easy, usually I start with normal, and hard the second time (haven't finished Graw2 on hard yet, not Resistance - even though I played that 3 times thru already - maybe that's why. The I loose motivation the second or third time). I see no point in playing CoD4 in hard, though, I'm not a die hard(core) player.
I am usually afraid to start off with hard, because I might get stuck somewhere and then I loose interest and usually I am to lazy to go back an start over again in an easier mode, while if I am starting easy and think its too easy, playing hard again adds at least a new challange.
I think I won't do easy on Uncharted, though. Even if I would get stuck, I would play that over and over again, I bet. (but then, I won't start of hard, either).
since I popped this game in
Gamer TV give a lot of game 5/5.
My '$' key i not working! What the hell?!
speaking of rachet.
the most recent reviews that metacritics DIDNT put up are
SYDNEY MORNING - 90
IGN AU - 94
WONDERWALLEB - 96
PCN - 90
GAMESAREFUN - 100
METACRITICS SURE MADE SURE TO PUT UP BAD REVIEWS QUICK OR THEY STILL DIDNT FIX THERE GAME REVOLUTIONS SCORE.
sorry but i had to say but anyway, i want to get uncharted the 25th but i MIGHT have to get it christmas unfortunetely. but can somebody tell me how good the twist is in the game. DONT TELL ME WHAT IT IS. just tell me how good it was.
Your gonna love it, you will expect it and totally not expect it at the same time.
However you can get this game, get it, it took me 14 hours to beat on normal,
I'm going to replay it again on hard(and I already own Assasins) this is one of the best gaming experiences I've had.
yer lol 6/10 my a$$ Gamer tv also gave mass effect 5/5...lol naaah
You guys are sad. (Rabid fanboys) This site need an overhaul so interesting news can stop being censored if the Sony droids dont like it. Sad... Sad indeed...
you're loosing it buddy, let it go. You're just another fanboy we get it.
move on :)
We're not rabid fanboys, we're realists which is something I think you need to think about. The same thing would have happened if you had been posting an article saying some 360 exclusive OWNED by Microsoft was technically possible on the PS3 therefore it was coming to the PS3. It's not even rumor worthy because everyone knows it's not happening, why you fail to see that I don't know. Apparently the admins realize it though which is why they took it down as spam.
Naughty Dog is a Sony first party and the game is even published by Sony, you honestly think they're letting it go to another NON Sony system?
Is that you in your avatar???
maybe we wouldn't report sh!t if you XBOTS would stop spreading FUD..
let me correct you now....a member of Naughty Dog..was asked if UNCHARTED could be done on the 360..and he said...it's not possible , cuase it would suffer in alot of areas because not every 360 has a hard drive...so judging by his response....UNCHARTED can only be done on the PS3..
and Naughty Dog is 1st party devs..plus Sony owns the rights to the game..so UNCHARTED stays permanently on the PS3...just like how HALO belongs to the 360...
NOW isn't there ne article in the 360 section...which you can comment on TROLL..??
The admins took it off because you Sony loyalists cried so loud and hard about it. This website has the same problem the game industry has... Both pander to the casual gamer!!! Button mashers like yourselves. You PS3 nazis aren't gamers, your group of individuals who are desperately looking for something to identify with. A group in which you can feel apart of. That group indentification come from the PS3(or god in most of your eyes). This is why your so intimidated by the possibility of Drake coming to the 360. Just the thought of it rubs you the wrong way. When I submitted the news I couldn't believe how fast it was denied. I think about 6 people left 17 reports. kingofps3 sent me a go f*ck yourself PM message. Its ridiculous how you people have this blind unwavering allegiance to a company that only cares about your wallet. This is rubbing me the wrong way because basically the PS3 loyalists are forcing the admins to censor my rumored news. Ive been a member of this site since 05 and Im starting to realize how hard it blows. Take all my bubbles if it means I cant share news that people would want to read regardless if it upsets the PS3 loyalists. If the admins have any integrity they will go to my failed news and post the article about the idea that Drake could come to the 360. Where is the balance? Im assuming most people who visit this site live in free countries. So why is this site being operated like were in communist China?
Thank you for proving my point... Just for the record,I own a PS3.
The Top 5 reasons you can't blame Mighty Boom for being a crying little fanboy... coming up next week on espn 2...
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA ....
Come on now is that the best you got?
So you think Sony only cares about our wallets? Right...and MS wants to charge you $50 a year just to play with someone somewhere. And oh, about the popular Xbox fanboys' opinion that this site is Sony biased, tell that to the (non-fanboyish) N4G Sony people who were chased out from MS BIASED sites such as Gamespot before going to this site.
Last but not least, this site ISN'T Sony biased...it is probably that this is the only non-"Sony only" site where Sony gamers can actually post their opinions without so much being harassed by the mob mentality of Xbox fanboys. So stop f-king crying that this is a Sony-biased site...you just can't dominate us the same way people like you would in Gamespot. Oh, I forgot, we're here to stay, whether you like it or not. If not, well, I suggest that you hang-out at Gamespot, where you would find the love that you won't get here.
PS: Bubbles to everyone who responded to Mighty Boom
You really have a problem mate if you bother to read the post on the XBOX site under no circumstance does it say that the game Uncharted would be ported to the 360. The interviewer asks would it be possible and because he said it may be possible then LOW and behold THE XBOTS claim it will happen.
The developer gives reasons why it would be VERY difficult if not impossible to port because of HDD,Blu-ray and memory differences so read it again then you can say sorry to the PS3 owners you MUPPET.
haha sony trolls got owned mighty boomed redueced all ur i.qs to about 1 as we all know this site is news4sony
Before you start making fun of other people's intelligence, you might want to at least start learning how to use (and type) proper English. It took me a freakin' while to figure out what the f-ck you were trying to say!
I was trying to point out the MS fanboys' hypocrisy and irony of labeling N4G.com as a "Sony lovin' site" while disregarding the rampant pro-MS fanboyism in other sites. But, knowing full well the hypocrisy of your kind, I'm not surprised that you didn't get my point.
I picked up this game on Friday at Gamestop and have to say it's beautiful as well as fun to play. I can't really find any faults in it and anybody who has a good HDTV with 1080p is going to be blown away by it. No doubt in my mind that this game should be able to win a few awards this year and even be considered for game of the year.
PS. Just in case 360 fans want to know, I also have a 360 so this isn't coming from a Sony fan but a gamer.
Uncharted is getting awesome reviews left, right and center (wait for Gamespot to spoil it all) which is awesome cause the PS3 now has 2 AAA titles (the other being Ratchet & Clank).
Its pretty impressive for a console to offer 2 AAA titles in its debut year. The Wii has done it with Zelda: Twilight Princess and Mario Galaxy but the 360 only has Gears on its debut year (Im being completely objective btw).
say what you want, But Resistance was a GREAt game. and for a launch title, it had some stellar features. Split-screen co-op, detailed stat tracking, awesome 40 player online!! that's pretty impressive for a launch title. so I would say there are 3 AAA launch titles...
I hope the next sequal to uncharted will be longer!! i love the game though sony really need these type of games to push the ps3 sales..
this goddamn waiting is making me crazy, i wanna play this game so badly, why the hell can't europe have the games released the same time as u.s...
soon my waiting shall be rewarded.. :D
we aint even got the demo yet in ireland . grrrr sony release it already
open up us account
did any body get up to the part with the fireflies, in level 13, where they fly around and emit light, but you can still slightly see them when they go dark, and none of them dissapear? i find shi like that unbelievable. also the game is overall amazing, and i remember an article on this site about sony needing a hero... shi*, drake's mine edit:and he doesn't even wear bodyarmor
Get to the 19th lvl where it gets freakin scary?
Edit:Yeah they want to keep the surprise. Those things are annoying and tough as ****.
dude you weren't joking. no body mentioned it has elements of resident evil 4
is like playing a major motion picture, I haven't rolled my eyes at the storyline once and Im usually a huge cynic.
rule out that old excuse of the ps3 having no games?
I mean warhawk,ratchet, and now drake's fortune are all great games.
eye of judgement was just god, and foklore was a sleeper hit.
I guess that now the only excuse are delayed games and framerate issues.
That "no games" argument was done with well over a month ago. Hah and after the Assassin's Creed issues I hardly think people will care about delays in comparison.
don't like single player games.
I just like sandbox titles and mmos.
my wishlist: gta4,mercenaries2, saints row 2, age of conan, protoype,and L.A Noire.
maybe haze if it's good.
but im not a new gamer. been gaming since the 80's. demo of this is great
the disagree is with what? i think the demo is great.
New to this site ? You'll get a disagree if you say your name! Ignore it.
let me tell you its very different on each diffuculty mode easy aint fun but when you put it on normal oh man what a challenge i died on the boat at the begining im scared to play it on hard mode well i beat GRAW 2 on the hardest mode were one hit kills you and it was a experience of a lifetime another perfect score for a perfect game
Uncharted sounds like it would be an excellent weekend rental. And please, no fanboys demand that I purchase the game. Less than 10 hours and no multi-player is a rental, and you know it.
