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. Wait Beyond
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.
