Here is the 30 second Uncharted: Drakes Fortune TV Spot - HD version.
Guy talks too fast at the end, good ad anyway, i like how he says "i think its for you".
So cant wait for this game :D
I mean it, 2 seconds at the end.
I will pick it up when it hit a sale @ Circuit city or something but $60 bucks for how many hours? 10 and no online right? I just want an HONEST opinion NO FANBOY crap I started the demo but at the waterfall I lost interest I dont like tomb raider games so maybe that has something to do with it
Lawnman: This game is easily worth $60. Sure there's no online play, but everything that makes a rememberable single player experience just comes together in this game. The visuals might kill you (if you stop and stare too long). The story is fun and draws you in. And the animations and acting make the on sceen characters look erriely real. To me it plays like gears of war meets indiana jones. You're not gonna go wrong with a game like this.
Yes, Uncharted is worth $60. It's worth it more than crap like Assassin's Creed. A majority of the games coming out right now aren't worth the money. Uncharted is though.
I played this game at a friends house today and I'll tell you what,
either you die hards in here posting work for Sony, and you're trying
to hype this game to move consoles!
Or you're all hardcore fanboys just trying to convince yourselves
that you invested wisely in a PS3,while trying to convince others
this game makes the ps3 worth it.
THIS GAME IS REALLY GOOD.............but that's it.
not a frickin chance.
There's a ton of tearing going on,and God forbid,
And replay value.......hardly any..... IMO.
But on the bright side,if you own a Ps3,go get it now.
But if you don't,please try reading between the Sonyfanboy lines.
Oh comon brotha. You expect people to take your "review" of Uncharted as Valid when you simply "went to a friends house" and played it? Sorry that's not how it goes. What if gamespot, egm, or god forbid Ign only "went to their friends house" played for a couple of hours then went home and reviewed the game for all to see. Would those sites gain credibility that way? No way! Here is my review.
I usually like to hold back on a review type of thing until i've COMPLETELY, completed a game (in this case beat it on all difficulties and unlock all secrets), but so far I can say it's supplied me with the most gorgeous visuals i've yet to see on any console game period and a sense of adventure I've yet to really feel during this new generation of gaming.
Now that's not to say the graphics are realistic, but rather so polished that it seems as if the level designers, tech team and those responsible for the art direction were in complete and utter synch to deliver what looks to be an unreal realization of what it truly looks like when concept art and actual in game graphics become one in the same. It's often i'll slowly walk by slightly holding down the analog stick in the direction i want to go so I can take in the scenery and absorb everything around me. The character animations and AI provoked me to play in a way where I wanted things to look as "realistic" as possible. Replaying certain sections and mapping out my strategy so I could recreate action sequences I have stored up in my head. In certain sections of the game Nate will even put his hands on objects just to gain balance or leverage. He'll stumble when you walk over something strange, and even put his foot on top of a fallen enemy if you position him right. This is the first in game character that i've seen react so well to the environment and it's a sight to behold.
On top of the visuals is the solid pacing that does a great job of keeping the player interested with not only variety in gameplay, but variety in environments. As soon as you begin to get tired of shoot outs your treated with a playground of ledges, cliffs, or ruins, and when your tired of that your given environmental based puzzles that show you your goal right from the onset. Which in turn gives you motivation to move on. From a sinking boat, to a lush green jungle, inside an abandoned war boat, and into flooded ruins, there's no longer a need to worry about varied looking environments because Uncharted delivers. And what does that lead me to? Level design.
Like i said above the puzzles supply you with motivation because you know what you need to get to, but learning and doing what you need to do is not only fun, but gratifying. Even more these levels are designed in such a way that even though it's linear, it seems open ended. Every area where a battle takes place turns out to be riddled with various objects for cover, and layed out in a way that each player can play the same area in the way they may personally desire. In some games you have extremely similar areas with different textures plopped down over them. With Uncharted you have completely different lay outs for each and every zone. Not only does this keep things fresh, but it really invokes the feeling that you really are a treasure hunter.
As a whole the game is an amazing experience that not only ps3 owners, but gamers as a whole should experience. It's blend of polished gameplay, stunning visuals, amazingly fun level design, and beautiful pacing not only improve on the 3rd person action adventure genre from days long past, but set a brand new bar that I can't see being passed any time soon.
PS. Without spoiling anything, the game gets surprisingly creepy/scary. So watch out!
You win for Mos Def.
Too fast to see IMO.
Too bad it does nothing for me because I already picked it up :)
Oh BTW It was GameCrazy(subsidiary of BlockBuster) that gave it to me early.
same here, it woulda been nice for them to air it before gamestop got it early. Oh well, you gotta figure most people will be getting it on tuesday anyway.
This was the most amazing next gen game I'ever ever played. A pefect 10 in my book and I'm one hard, hard reviewer on my blogsite. Look at my motorstorm, heavenly sword and Halo 3 reviews. Uncharted wasn't a game... it was an experience.
Did you do the same as me and stare at the ocean and across the island just watching the view? I must have spent 5 minutes at times in the game just looking at the views, i'm only 66% done with is and I have never played a game that made me just stop to look at the view and be amazed.
Stop it! Stop it!! I don't get it for another 12 days!! Aaaargh I can't wait for it!
Dude you have no idea I just hope you have a good HD tv or you will be missing out on so much beauty. My girlfriend who doesn't like video games couldn't believe I was playing a game. I showed her a part of the game where you look over the massive gap between one side of the island to the mansion and her jaw dropped. It's that breath taking to think someone created this kind of view on a video game.
Guys, if you own a 1080P tv, disable your 720 and 1080I settings. That is what gaming is all about. Uncharted in this setting is like nothing you've ever seen before. It's amazing.
My only real complain with it was... Well, 1 - it ended.. and 2. I think chapters 8, 9 and 10 just went by too fast. Chapter 12 is where the game just become something else. And I don't wanna spoil it for anyonewho hasn't played it. But the game takes on a dual role and it really does become even more of an epic. This is the must have game. You ahve to have this game, people. If you're not happy with it I'd personally send you 64 dollars "ha"
lol I mentioned that exact thing in my review in my blog, check it out (its on this website).
dont buy this game what ever u do HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I only joking although i still think its average.
*Removes from ignore list for now*
I totally agree. Especially Chapter 19+, that's just insane.(Trying not to spoil anything, but it's what you expect and don't expect at the same dang time)
When Drake jumps in the water while inside the temple Zoom in. The lighting on the walls has a blue tint due to the light reflecting off the water.. Its just beautifully done. The in game visuals remind me of FFX (when Tidus and Yuna are in the water.)
You really cant say enough about this game. It is obvious that this game deserved a 10/10. Kinda sucks for fanboys of this era. Not being able to play this game is really missing out on the first game I would really call next-gen. This game, Call of Duty 4, and Mass Effect.
You think Uncharted is average? Do you even own a PS3? Are you a Halo freak or something? I don't see how anyone who has played Uncharted can say it's average. Just playing the demo tells you it's way past that.
It would be a travesty if this game doesn't get the recognition from gamers and accolades that it deserves. Uncharted is without doubt a serious contender for GOTY.
I agree 100% bubble 4 u, but you know what's sad is that spike's show list this game as only best PS3 game. The GOTY is all 360 games, or multi console games.
F**k SpikeTV. No one will actually watch that crap anyway. Anyone who doesn't recognize the greatness of this game is in my opinion a moron.
I LOVE this game. Everything about it is awesome, and the only repetitive negative listed in the reviews, length, is mooted in my book because i'm already looking forward to playing through it again. There are so many unlockables and none of them feel like a chore to maintain either. THIS is playing beyond.
i'm 5+ hours into the game with only 36% completion only... 90 medals found/awarded out of 1000... this game is more than a game... it's TIMELESS!!! anyone, and i mean ANYONE who thinks they're a true gamer MUST experience this game... you cannot die a gamer if you never played this BRILLIANT game through (and don't be a wuss.. go Hard & Crushing, PWNer!) ... this shouldn't get GotY, it should get game of the GotD (DECADE).
it has a feel of a big budget movie
yeah i caught myself thinking that alot.......especially on the ...well, basically every level. every action sequence and every gun fight.
im gonna beat rnc first then try this again on hard.
FIRST GENERATION PS3 GAME.
LOL. daamn, we have no idea what the ps3 is capable of.
I think it'll move games.
7th December, its not out in the UK till the 7th December.
Comes out where I'm at this week. Why not just order it. Its Region free ^_^
yeah 7th in switzerland too....... and well importing is just too damn expensive. i pay like 30% more when importing from usa. will have to wait. but well still have r&c to finish and some warhawk asskicking.
disappointing ad for a disappointing game
What do you find disappointing about it Zhuk
Hehe, good one. Don`t take stand-up comedy as a career path when you leave school.
probably the fact that the in game engine cutscene at the beginning was better looking that any other game out as of now
its raining 9 s for this game and its disapointing. pleas
it's disappointing that you feel the need to troll a game that you most surely haven't played, for a system that clearly you are biased against.
Plain and simple, you suck.
Meus Renaissance: He finds it dissapointing that he doesn't have a PS3 to play it
What`s really disappointing is you and your comment (even though one shouldn`t expect more from you)
Uncharted will most likely get me to buy a PS3 this year, maybe that`ll be disappointing for you, but so be it
suck ya mothers d*ck
Zhuk, you must live a very lonely loser existence to become some xbot hermit being whipped by the MS suits for such ignorance. swallow your pride and rent the game and at least play it before you open your mouth. would it hurt? probably would.. MS probably sends electrical shocks to you everytime anything pro-ps is thought of
you just became really popular, you have no way to back up your retarded post do you?
Oh wait, you can't. You've never played it. Don't worry. I'm sure you're mom will buy you a PS3 one day.
UNCHARTED DRAKES FORTUNE
He is dissapointed that its not on 360
Zhuck's is dissapointed because the graphic's on this destroys Gears of war, Mass Effect, Halo 3 and Biosock, thats what he's dissapointed about.
let's take away ur bubbles xbot.
he only thing disappointing to xbots is that this game is not on the 360 or ever will be
ZHUK, you are very disapointing, GTFO.
this shizzle is dope
haha this game is so cool
games already at bestbuy.. i live in cali
Dunno if I was just unlucky, but I only saw the Ratchet commercial once. They'd be stupid not to air this commercial many times during Thanksgiving day football.
pleas people at sony make sure this ad is evrywhere not just us but eu to and ofcours jap and aus
Who buy their first Ps3 mid 2008 as Uncharted likely to be part of any special package with 2 free games, controller(rumble) and console for less than US$300.
Just fantasizing here. I'm hoping the other free game is Heavenly Sword. Now these two games would give any new Ps3 owner and experience worth savouring...and wanting more.
This year was pretty good: price cut, regular fw updates, HS, R&C, Folklore, Uncharted, EoJ, Warhawk, UT3 and quality Multis, improving PSN.
Without a doubt, 2008 will be the year for the Playstation Nation.
But i think they should have shown more gameplay, instead of the running in the beginning (guess i just wanted to see more of the it hehe)
Considering it was only 30 seconds long however, it was a fast paced and cool trailer, which i`m sure will move a "few" consoles ;)
Sony definitely seem to getting the hang of their commercials lately (and other stuff for that matter) ;)
hahaha.. that ad is SO LIKE DRAKE.. don't you think? exactly what he'd say too.. hahaha.. Uncharted is one of THE best games i have ever played. i hope ND rolls out more Uncharteds cause they found treasure with this gem. 9.9 score from me. it's a pity that it is WAY under-rated and hyped because it is just an amazing game to play.
I envy the US guys above who already played the game and my version's boxart is kind a lame :(
That's one damn ugly box art. The warhawk one is also daft.
please, that's just something you threw together with a cheap photo program right? that cannot be the cover art... that's just... WRONG!
that is fake. i can tell.
I don't know, some site quote this image as boxart. I hope it's not.
Anyway Thanks Wolfgang187 =D
The thing with me was this.. I went into Uncharted with amazing hope... It shattered all my aspirations of the game and went above that... I often wanted another Jak and daxter game... even the day I got it I was anticipating next fall when the new J&D game hits, actually. However, now... I don't even want one. Jak is Jason Rubin and Andy Gavin. Uncharted is Evan, Amy and the rest of Naughtydog... Basically, the next gen Naughtydog. I don't want Jak back now. I just want Uncharted's story to unfold. I cannot wait for 2 year to come now. "ha" This was Romancing and the Stone, Indy Jones... National Treasure... it was all these movie sin 1 and it is the 1st game to actually make you feel like you're playing the role of an action star.
I'm about 4 hours in and the thing that struck me (besides the insane visuals) was how much it out does Assassins Creed with respect to the climbing and jumping. Dunno why but I thought AC would have Uncharted beat there, but it's far more fun in Uncharted.
Also, moving headshots rule!
i like that tv spot. Thanks for showing it. ;)
and nice find Wolfgang187...
if they only used 30% of PS3 capabilities.. =)
CGI looks really good, but ingame is also very close to it.
lol I was thinking the same thing. The game looks really good, but the commercial makes me think of when games will really look that good. Awesome ad.
I'm not talking gameplay but if ANYTHING, and I mean ANYTHING beats this game at an award for sound and voice acting I'm going to kill the reviewer.
Edit: I just realized why I like this game so much. I don't like Tomb Raider, it's just too slow. But this game is like National Treasure, which I love and is my favorite movie, with quick actions and puzzles that will make you go "huh?" and then "Oh! I should have realized that!" Then there's a plot twist that's for the worst, then they get out of it. Perfect. Perfection.
The new ad campaign is going vey well. All Sony needs to do is bring it to EU and other PAL territories.
