In the preview they are already saying why they can't give the game the greatest score they could give to a game : According to them AI is not so good and multiplayer too.

When you see they gave 9.5 to gears 3 which AI has been tuned down and is not so good, you can hope this webzine will be fair. Actually U3 have the most dynamic and fun gameplay i've played in a TPS, but let this to their appreciation.

But still you can doubt. They gave a 7.8 to Infamous 2.

@ksense. Sadly I feel the exact same way.

Reading their preview, the nitpicking comes to an almost ridiculous point.

"Combat and exploration are both as fluid as ever, although the camera has a habit of becoming slightly disobedient at times, especially when close to scenery"

"It’s also a very funny game at times, with Drake’s one-liners hitting the right comedic notes on a number of occasions. Still, especially when Drake is alone, his constant blathering does begin to grate somewhat. "

"I can’t help but feel that Uncharted’s style of play doesn’t lend itself well to a more fast-paced, competitive environment,"

They had nitpicked it to death in a matter of a few paragraphs. Yet in their gears of war 3 review, it was almost glowing with "near-perfection" and "the finest third person shooter" as if it were some high priced bottle of wine.

In terms of reviews, I wouldn't expect anything higher than an 8.5. Maybe a 9 if they decide to be extremely generous.

Does anyone know what the clown crushing coop thing is that is talked about in the MP beta?

JimmyHACK2466d ago

Drake hates clowns, so wait and see. Will be cool most likely

I don't know, but I swear if it's a level of evil clowns coming at Drake in a scary circus I just might crap my pants. It could be a levelplayed out as a dream or silly scenario that's a big nightmare. I can't wait!

fluffydelusions2466d ago

Yeah I know he hates clowns. I wonder if it's some sort of horde mode style gameplay...
