Does Drake get wiped off the map?
always seems to be the most balanced of reviewers. I haven't watched this one yet, but I wonder what it will get.
EDIT: That's the thing with all these ps3 games, they look and play fantasticly, (aside from LAIR), they are extremely fun, but they cut short, like a movie almost. These ps3 games are so briliant, however, fail to satisfy it's price tag as it's value is not up to scratch. By value I mean for instance in comparison to something like The Orange Box, buying that assures you and gives the peace of mind that your paying one hundred dollars (in australia) for a game that will last you a hell of a long time. Not just one awesome weekend.
I guess in the years to come more GTA long games will come out, but until then.....yer.
it was very good. i'll definately be playing again on Hard to find the other medals.
it's not short either, i just had alot of free time this weekend and put some major hours into it.
time to flip AC..........................
I will buy this when it's $49.99 at Circuit City or for less on Ebay. Looks great but thats alot of money for a game you will not touch after you beat it in 2 days.
After playing this amazing game, reading the reviews feels exactly like watching foxnews: makes me want to puke at the legally sponsored dishonesty, and the appalling lack of accountability. This is the best game I've played this year on any platform, don't let any digital cuckroach tell you otherwise, especially if they own a soapbox in the gaming media. Microsoft is now swift-boating at large because they've seen how successful it is when you can get away with murder. I am now done with official gaming sites just like any mainstream media outlet.
It is urgent for us gamers to find new ways to get independent reviews.
hey.. it IS 49.99 at circuit city.. cause this week only they are giving a 10$ gift card when u buy this game. im getting it for shure
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone
And another one gone
Another one bites the dust
THIS IS WAITING
it got an 8.9
The design score brought it down.Scored nines everywhere else.
It has to have online multiplayer
It has to be more than 20 hours long
and it has to be on the 360
look at the agrees count. Jealousy is awful thing.
This game was meant to play on hard. They must have played it on normal. On Hard everything is so much better. Can't wait to play Crushing mode
I played it on hard too and IMO that brings about the perfect challenge. Uncharted biggest flaw has to be its length but its still a pretty good game. Not everyone plays game at a stretch so a lot of people could easily find fun out of it. I think they are being a little too hard on the games length. I'm really busy and even though i beat uncharted in bout 10hrs str8 i cnt wait to play it again on crushing jst that i dnt have the time. The game is that good. I dnt play all games twice but I do games like God of war ratchet and clank e.t.c.
Mass Effect is suppose to be only 15 hours...so 12 hours of playing Uncharted is perfect...
Cod4 was only 5 hours...but at least it had some awesome online....
..wheres the logic there?
i swear to god it feels like every ps3 game is getting 8.9..they just cant make it over that hump
yeah tough, i realized that too. if you average the parts, it rounds up to a 9...
but doesn't matter, i'll be picking this one up on wednesday
another question i have is, when will gamespot's review come out.. haha
Does NOT make the game more fun it makes it LESS fun.
Doesn't change thte fact it's the most fun I had with a single-player game since God of War 2.
nothing can change the feeling and awe i get when i pick up the controller and continue where i left off in Uncharted. no game EVER had me stop mid-game to look at the amazing scenery for 10 minutes before getting back in the game. that's all i got to say. this game is TIMELESS. everything just meshes so well.
Why is there an issue with game length with games such as Uncharted and HS when games like GOW and GOW2 was 6 and 7.5 hrs respectively? Heck MGS2 wasn't that long of a game either. Doesn't the awesome gameplay like in Uncharted and GOW makeup for the game's length?
HS was too short and it left you wanting the story fleshed out a little more. COD4 was fine with its 5-6 hour story. FPS stories aren't overly complex, in fact they're fairly easy to comprehend.
True, but HS was total crap. You could beat it by pressing triangle over and over
No you couldn't, the enemies would own you from that.
or the fact that MGS1 could be played through in 3-5 hours... that didnt make it any less of a fantastic game. I dont think that playtime should be assessed for the score, they should simply tell you how long they took to beat it. That way you can decide if you will get enough out of the game. I mean all my favorite games are short and sweet, nothing wrong with a sort fantastic game, better than adding another 6 hours that drag on or get nothing else across from a story perspective.
9 + 8 + 9.2 + 9.7 = 35.9 / 4 = 8.975 If you were to round this number it would have to be rounded up based on the number, so why did it not equal 9.
I think gametrailers is pretty good on their ratings and this is not a big deal it just seems strange. Any thoughts?
I dont think its an average is it?
Most review sites don't base their score of an average*****
but I like Gametrailers reviews..I do enough reading on the computer
except the last part of this review...not worth a buy, more of a rental...thats just a slap in the face..which is weird because its such a high score
Did I miss something in the review ? But why did it get an 8 for design ? Did he explain that. In the beginning the reviewer sounded unhappy, but eventually he praised the stunning visuals. But, then again, I don't exactly understand the 8 for design.
Why you would give an 8 for design really does not add up for me either.
I think they went 8 there because it's so linear. But, really, what's wrong with that? Not every game needs to be sandbox, you know. A lot of fantastic games have been totally linear - I don't think that's much reason to knock it. But whatever, it's still a good score and a must-play for PS3 owners.
"Aside from achievements, 60 different treasures, and a bunch of bonus content, there's no reason to go back and play this game again. A lack of some sort of leaderboard co-operative or online modes doesn't help stretch its longevity either"
Ok, that makes little sense. And they score Assassins Creed, what 9.3? I give up with these reviews. They scored the game 9.1, 9.2, 9.7 and then..8 to crash down the overall score, because its not as long as one would like. Yet AC, although longer, has you doing the same things over and over yet it gets a stellar score, whereas Uncharted is so great in every other aspect it doesn't even get a 9.0, 8.9. It's an insult.
Out of all the PS3 exclusives that truly deserved universal recognition, it would have to have been Uncharted but I guess its a no. I feel sorry for Naughty Dog as they deserved recognition for this game but GT are too busy with displaying count downs for the Mass Effect review like we don't know the score it'll get. I'm not hitting ME, but it just gets tiring to see 360 exclusives being hailed as the 2nd coming of gaming, where great PS3 titles like Uncharted are just dismissed and ignored for little reasons.
If Sony become the market leader once again, I say scrap support for these sites and support their rivals e.g. IGN, GameInformer because there is definitely an ugly stench in these circles.
This score isn't bad but its an injustice and I feel that you'll see that reading the comments, even from Xbox 360 owners. The game deserves more.
And thats even with many reviews stating that each mission in AC is the exact same formula. ????? Who knows? I can't wait for my order to come so I can play UDF!!
Yeah, I don't really understand it. Does a leaderboard really extend gameplay? I personally don't give a damn about leader boards. And I was surprised that the reviewer didn't understand the concept that some people might want to play a game again because it is fun.
What's worse is they usually score games on that "other" system higher than PS3 versions BECAUSE of achievements and crap. GT while usually on the ball lost some of its credibility with me on that AC review. The AI they had on display was downright stupid and it still garnered a 9.3. I don't even care about reviews anymore though, I'll continue to play what I want.
I am getting the same feeling. The bar to get a 10 for a PS3 games seems to be twice as high. (and again, 9 story, 9.2 gameplay, 9.7 presentation and (tata) 8 (?) design ??? WTF).
- BTW And if someone else would deliver a quality product like AC they'd get a 5 or 6. Since when does a review qualify a "potentially" good looking game - but not a final product. Unless Ubi fixes that game, its a shame it even reached 9.
@Meus, in case you haven't noticed, Gametrailers seem to be huge Jade Raymond fans (they have soooo many JR videos on their site). I'm sure that influenced their AC review by at least a little bit.
ooo man, I'm glad you are pissed at the score too. I hate how they say how it didn't add anything new or invent anything new to gaming? When did that mean the scores went down?? crap halo 3 anyone? Thats a fun game, although I thought the scores were a little to high, what did it bring new to the gaming world??? All I know its a fun game, hard to put down, best graphics to date on a console, and it has lots of hidden items to find. There whole review didn't make sense, besides having lots of secrets and unlockables, it doesn't have a lot of reply value?? man shut up GT, you know you just mean Multiplayer. What a hack review. Seriously MGS 2 and 3 are great games and you can beat them in 8 to 10 hours, same thing with the devil may cry games. I really am not trying to down play the 360 great games, but this is starting to piss me off how double standards reviewers are having on ps3 games and its only on ps3 games.
from that first quote about the unlockables, it almost sounds like he's joking, because he just stated a ton of reasons to play it again! Oh well, guess online mode is thought of as a necessity these days and will add +1.0 to any game.
icechai - yeah, but shall see if they take off any for mass effect. lol.
" We've waited a while for a Playstation 3 game that TRUELY SEPERATES itself from Xbox 360 software... and we finally have it. Drake's Fortune is !!!!!!EASILYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!! THE BEST LOOKING CONSOLE GAME ON THE MARKET"
-QUOTE from GT on 11/18/07
It is written. The Xbox 360 will NEVER HAVE A GAME that looks as good as Uncharted. PERIOD. And this is JUST THE BEGINNING for PS3 software.
DAMN PWNED OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND A LITTLE MORE.
AND OVER AND OVER. NUFF SAID. Go PS3!
All that matters is this is my favorite game of 2007. ;)
Assassin's Creed 9.3
Do they even play the games?
I heard that Aaron thomas(the no handed reviewer that reviewed R&C for Gamespot) got hired by Gametrailers. Thats why the Voice sounded different, it makes sense.
As I mentioned in another comment, gametrailers seem to be huge Jade Raymond fans (they have a lot of videos of her on their site) so I'm sure that influence their review a little bit.
I find it odd that they say the fighting was difficult to use. I thought it was pretty intuitive.
They were probably trying to button mash, Naughty Dog said they meant for the fighting to be effective yet leaving you very vulnerable while using it so it doesn't overpower the game.
i've seen a video of a player taking down everyone with hand 2 hand combat in the demo. It was simply awesome to look at because of his skill and the amount of animation.
Your not going to run out and start punching someone in a gun fight.
I personally have taken out every enemy in the demo with melee. I love it.
I scored "Headshot honcho" on my first run through the game, im only on chapter 14.
I agree that GT is one of the best review sites.
But what is all this talk about game length. I don't have time to play a 40 hour game. 10-15 hours is plenty.
How many HD-DVD or BluRay discs could you buy for $60?
How many hours of fun would you get from them?
How much interaction do you get from them?
...and what happens when you try and get replay value from a $60 meal? (you may have to look for some obscure porn for the answer to that one)
I do have to admit that reviews and reviewers are getting tiresome. I am going to go back to the old days NES/Sega days of buying something because it is the type of game I want to play. Uncharted will be mine tomorrow no matter if someone scores it a -1.
should i spend my money on this, call of duty or assassin
PSN Call of Duty 4. It has replay value.
Uncharted. Experience it and get COD4 2nd hand because its mainly an Online game.
Keep in mind though, chances are you'll never find CoD4 used as online gives this game great replay value and will prevent a lot of people from selling back for another game.
Also remember that most good games don't get resold back, and if they are, they will be picked up in a flash by someone. As an example, I haven't seen many used copies of Heavenly Sword around and that game is short and has little to no replay value.
Oh yea, and about your question, I've only played CoD4 so far, and it plays perfectly on PS3 as far as performance goes. And for gameplay, it depends on what kind of games you like.
AC is like GTA
CoD4 is like Halo3
Uncharted is like Tomb Raider
CoD4 has some benefits. The story mode is, hm, an "alibi". I think its just there to justify the arcade mode. That however could be fun to play - if you like scores in a shooter (actually, I like it). For online...hm, hadn't much of a chance yet. I'd wish either Graw2 would have CoD4's visuals or CoD4 would have Graw2's gameplay (which IMO I like better). I haven't seen AC yet, but I'd probably rate
1) Uncharted (better cover system and visuals then CoD4!)
2) AC (if they'll release a fixed version ASAP)
But, well, obviously I am preferring a good story over online.
then pick up COD4
pass on assassin creed
you will be very disappointed
in assassin creed
after playing Uncharted
It all depends on your preference though. If you like to look in every corner and treasure hunt, then Uncharted all the way. If you like FPS and an amazing storyline, then get COD4. It all depends on how much you play online though. COD4 has an amazing story but is over quickly without playing multiplayer.
They're both amazing games and no matter what you choose you will not be disappointed.
This game is OFF THE HOOK!!!
i started the game on hard. its hella fun. i think i missed some treasure on the earlier lvls :( guess ill have to go back through on crushing....oh darn :P
I dunno did I hear this guy say the A.I isn't SMART there's just alot of them..??..the A.I in this game is top notch..I don't know what the hell he's talking bout
and the game isn't short why didn't he mention how long it took him to beat the game..??..other reviewers atleast back up there claims with a tacked on number...
Low replay value does ne game that doesn't include some sort of online functunality whether its' leader board..coo-op or w/e. it is has low replay value..??...I played the demo over 25 times...and every single time the A.I reacted differently ..the A.I alone gives this game legs..it doesn't make gameplay feel repetitive when you die .
He hardly stated anything bad about the game but it scored an 8.9..BUT Assassins Creed who has terrible A.I and repetitive mission...which also suffers from bugs..glitches and what not got an 9.3..did they even play Assassins Creed cuz i've not yet heard ne reviewers mention ne thing about experiencing bugs ..glitches..or white screens...
PLAY B3YOND...ppl buy this game don't rent...and don't play it on easy also..as that guy did..!!
BTW i've played Uncharted for 8.5 hrs and im only at 60% completed..it's on hard BTW..!!
AI is such a subjective idea in all games. There are VERY few games that seem to get AI right(according to reviewers), FEAR and Halo come to mind.
THe AI is perfectly fine in this game.
Depending on what sort of weapon they have they will attack differently, and they will try to flank you repeatedly along with throwing grenades to flush you out.
You are kidding about Halo right?
Your AI co-op player is rubbish, your AI troops are even worse, and the enemy are rubbish too.
Same attack patterns, same side stepping left then right, I don't think you can use Halo 3 as an example of good AI. Fear I like definitely, and also Metal Gear Solid 2 was good in terms of the difficulty of hiding from alert guards.
Uncharted hasn't been released here yet but the AI on the demo was fine. The enemies come from the same places of course, but overall it seemed better than most other games.
I don't think it's 10 hours, it's NOT a weekend game, and the punching is quite easy to pull off and there are many different ways to attack people.
with destructible environments, for example I was shooting it out with baddies while standing halfway up a stairwell, there was too much crossfire coming back at me for me to peek my head out, there was a barrier at the top of the stairs to be used as cover, I shot off the top corner of it with my AK only to reveal the head of one of the enemies not aware that I now had a clear shot at him. BAMMMMM, this game is AWESOME!!!
