Uncharted 2 is currently second highest rated game
this generation on metacritic. Next to GTA4 which i feel overrated since it was released early in the cycle.

I wonder if Uncharted 3 will break Uncharted 2's record.

98 on Metacritic? I don`t even see how that`s possible.

Virtually every single score would have to be perfect for that to happen. There would be a cushion for and handful of 9.0`s and that`s it, all the rest would have to be PERFECT.

Unlikely. Especially since since almost every PS3 exclusive this year has been, in my opinion, underrated.

@ApplEaglElephant
Although I'm a huge PS3 fanboy, your statement is simply not true. Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 both are higher on Metacritic than UC2.

Uncharted 2: 96
SMG 1 and 2: 97

GTA4 sits as #1 at 98.

EDIT: WOW... although early, the PS3 version of Batman: Arkham City is sitting at 98!

I just replayed Uncharted 2 for my platinum too! But I lost my save game in a YLOD so I had to chart hard again, just so I could be allowed to chart Crushing!

Edit: Just saw the new PS3 commercial this minute during Fringe. That was much better than I imagined!

I don't understand how a game with a multiplayer that so many fans of the series complain about can still get rated so highly.

Multiplayer is never weighted correctly in reviews. It's either everything in reviews, like MW2 or Black Ops, or completely ignored, like in MGS4 and possibly U3.

I agree. Each Uncharted release ranks right up there with the other big days in my life, like getting a driver's license, turning 18, turning 21, etc. Of course, at my age, there's not much left to look forward to...so that could explain my excitement.

Uncharted 3 is a complete adventure, that will take us threw exotic landscapes, bringing awesome shootings and fights in dangerous tombs

uncharted_3_review-13

From a artistic point of view, uncharted 3 is a marvel. Never before have we seen environments so amazing.

uncharted_3_review-5

Platforms continue to be clear: By just having a quick look you will see outstanding platforms(dangerous or difficult) where you can go.

Chole, Elena, Sulli... all the good people from uncharted 2 return. If you dont know them, you will lose some details in the drama... but nothing TOO important.

RedDragan  +   1050d ago
In particle physics .1 can means the difference between unlimited energy and negative energitc output.

What that means is Fusion could work and be sustainable, thus being an everlasting energy source. Thus changing the world forever.

OR, it could mean that Fusion remains in the status quo where we currently have to put more energy in that what we get out, and thus it will never be able to power the planet.

.1

It is important... in particle physics.

If I were a reviewer a 10 would never be awarded as that implies there is nothing they could have done better, and that's just not ever going to happen.
xX_Altair_Xx  +   1050d ago
A game is reviewed as it is, not as it should be in an ideal world. We can always do better but if it's better than the rest then it deserves the highest score possible.
NBT91  +   1050d ago
well a 1-10 scale does not necessarily have to mean that the 10 represents perfection, just because it is the highest score they allow, a 10 would just mean they thought it was amazing.

If I genuinely thought it was flawless and could not be improved in any way, I would mention that in the review and award it a ten. If I thought it was still a very special game, but with nitpicking flaws I would mention that and if it was nothing too serious, award it a 10.
schlanz  +   1050d ago

Planescape:Torment is my only 10/10 game. It is perfection from the perspective of a RPG. Seriously, many of the things it did are still being used in so many RPGs today, including the conversation wheels in BioWare's games.

CynicalVision  +   1050d ago
Because scoring a game 10 implies that it's absolutely perfect.

Personally I hate it when reviewers give a game a perfect score, there's no such thing as perfection.
DigitalAnalog  +   1050d ago
"Personally I hate it when reviewers give a game a perfect score, there's no such thing as perfection."

Then we should also remove the 100% marks in exams as well since NO student is perfect either.
CynicalVision  +   1050d ago
@DigitalAnalog

That's completely different, a test involves answering questions right or wrong. I'm talking about reviews, implying that a game (or any type of media) is perfect is just absurd.
DigitalAnalog  +   1050d ago
@CV

Like tests, reviews should've at least certain requirements to reach top marks. What exactly is the point of as scale of 10 if no game is unable to reach that. We're not looking at an infinitude of progression in between 2 games. There is an end number ergo a score that can be obtained as long as certain requirements are met.

To say that there is no perfect game, yet place a score that requires a perfect game is a self-collapsing concept. If we're going to base our scoring system on this then it is the "flaws" that is the barrier to obtain a perfect score therefore it CAN be progressive. So if I can find so many flaws in the game within a 10 point scale NO MATTER HOW solid the game is, I can give it a 1/10.

What is really needed to clarify is that a perfect score means a game have EXCEEDED beyond all expectations and not judged based on perfection.

It might seem surprising to you, but back then many gaming press reviews gave it the perfect score 99% I even saw a 20/20 in console+ magazine that I bought in 1997. Because that's what it was, a perfect game based on a movie and it didn't suck in'97.

Seems like a lot of people are high on a single foreign publication. I will be getting the game anyway, but I'm not expecting it to be better then the last Uncharted game. When your at the top, only one place to go.

Also, I wouldn't be expecting perfect scores all over either, this hasn't been a great year for those, and I doubt the third game in a series get's many.

What I mean by that is, the first game was solid, the second game improved upon that and a lot of the time the second game is the real deal, the third game usually get's reviewed as "more of the same". So I suspect Uncharted 3 will suffer from a bit of that, much in the same way as Resistance 3, Gears 3 and even Halo 3.
Tarantino_Life  +   1050d ago
That is quite possible. There are exceptions though. It appears Arkham City is getting great scores even though its another iteration of the batman series with some returning gameplay mechanics. Who knows Maybe even UC3 will follow that trend. But you are right there are more chances of the game following the'more of the same' comments from Reviewers. Thats fine though because it will be better then UC2 and that means it will be a mind blowing game irrespective of of the overall meta score!
Noticeably_FAT  +   1050d ago
Batman AC is the sequel though. I think a third title in that series might suffer a bit. I have both this game and AC preordered though...lol

I think you need to take into account ND's past track record. Their previous 2 franchises had three games each and each successive game got better than the last. It's in there DNA man.

Uncharted 3 is very different from it predecessors though which actually suprised me, I dunno how infromed you guys have been but there is a shit load of changes, first off the animations.. there completely different to the other predecessors entirely, the gameplay... you can use objects as weapons in SP such as a bottle, book etc.. more ways of taking down enemies like mid-air sidewards... I sprint, The menu are different from the signature ones uc1 and 2 did and did I mention the huge mp rehaul. I didn't expec these many changes myself but I don't think any reviewer can say its more of the same. Gears of war 3 (my best game played this year so far) did'nt do a quarter of that neither did the games you mention
