According to a user who had recently attended an Uncharted 3 first play event, the game’s director Justin Richmond has disclosed some startling new details regarding Naughty Dog’s upcoming exclusive.
for a moment, until I realised it was a play tester who had managed to speed run through the game. I hope it's at least 10 hours long.
Skyrim can be beaten in 2 hours so it's all good.
Yea if you freeze time.
If skyrim can be beaten in 2 hours then UC3 can in 1 hour.
@_Aarix_ @lugia 4000 here's the proof, of course they know the game inside out. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Dark Souls can be beaten in 1.5 hours too.
It might be true, but all of the uncharted games I played have replay value. All in the disc.
wow if one of the guys speed runned Fallout 3 in 75 minutes that means Skyrim is twice as long as FO3?
isnt UC3 a linear game? i mean you can't go out of the main quest and explore right? lol wow seriously people can't even ask a thing on this site with out getting disagrees "Why would you ask that from my favorite game!!!??? DISAGREE!!!"
Awesome stuff. I guess if it were a pro like a QA tester playing UC3 he would have been done with it in 2 hours as well. Seeing as how there are no secondary missions in UC3 its pretty much a straight forward title. @Tr10wn Yeah its a linear title.
LOL...3.3. hours is hardly a "speed run"
lol kinda true story line just has to be good its the gameplay that has to be long
Some nut beat Dark Souls in under 2 hours. I'm not worried that a playtester beat U3 is 3.
Beating ICO in under 2 hours for the platinum is pretty tough.
Not the same thing.
And Dark Souls can be beaten in 1 and a half hours with a new character and my first playthrough of Dark Souls took me 75 hours
3.3 hours is hardly a speed run! how can a speed run of a linear game like Uncharted 3 be longer than a RPG like Skyrim which took just over 2 hours on speed run? either the tester for Uncharted 3 is not THAT good or the tester for Skyrim is too damn good! or...maybe the tester for Uncharted 3 was enjoying the gorgeous scenery in the game and somehow forgot that he was on the ticking clock lol!
I'm not even anywhere near completing Oblivion, it took me about 2 hours to decide on what nose I should have!
random thoughts: -some are putting to much into "time to complete the game" instead of "time spent having fun". -many games we love are shorter than we think they are. - if a game is good it will always be to short, if its bad even 3 hours is too long. -not that i'm dissing, but most time spent on Skyrim will be on time consuming exploration, grinding, collecting, shuffling in the menus...(as an RPG fan I love this when done good) -U3 is a straight out action adventure game, yet actual gameplay is not that liner, in U2 i spent many hours trying to do things differently, attack enemies straight on, or stealth kill them, or melee kill everyone..
I'm assuming he didn't hunt for any treasures/relics. Possibly played using the "Fast Motion" and "Infinite Ammo" cheats. And skipped all story elements. Impossible on first playthrough. Naughty Dog stated that it's just as long as Uncharted 2. I can see myself easily spending 13 hours or so on my first playthrough.
True. If you follow the main quest, i'm sure you can easily beat Skyrim. That's why they have the giant world to explore, though.. plenty of time wasting to go around!
Any SP game can be speed run and be butchered in a matter of hours. The question is why would you want to do that? you wont enjoy the game that way, what a waste of money.
I've heard of people doing that, buying games just to speed run them from the first playthrough. Just like there are assholes who play rpgs and skip all dialogue and cutscenes on the first playthrough or buy games they don't want to play just because they're easier to get a platinum trophy on. Just because it'd be stupid and ridiculous to do, doesn't mean there isn't some guy out there doing it. Also, way to be a nice guy.
@helghast I had a speedrun through COD WAW to get zombie level lol
@helghast I had a speedrun through COD WAW to get the zombie level lol
Well, to be able to do a speed run through the game in the first place, you must've played it tons of hours beforehand to be able to memorize how to do puzzles, know where to go, and practice practice practice, before you could simply breeze through it. So prior to this '3.3 hours', a nornal person would've have put in a significant number of hours just practicing and learning.
@Shinro bubbles for an intelligent comment
Hey they got me too! LOL we can all have good laughs over this because all's good :). If it took UC3 3 hours to beat on easy, while Skyrim and Dark Souls both took only 3 hours combined to beat then this is cause for celebration!!!
you can spin this into a headline: "Uncharted 3 longer than Skyrim and Dark Souls COMBINED!"
in one and half hrs? for most people who will play on normal and enjoy it you can have atleast 8-10hrs of single player story
Maybe the tester didnt use L1
I find this hard to believe tbh, but whatever, the game's still gonna rock!
I don't believe uncharted ever has had slow-mo sequences. Yes they have sequences but I wouldn't call them slow-mo. There either running away or action sequences. I do believe slow-mo sequences could work well. Plus isn't there unlockable slow-mo and fast-mo in both uncharted games already
Pretty sure that in Uncharted 2, when you're running away from Lazarevic after he kills the cameraman, there's a scene with Elena jumping over a gap and Drake catches her and it's in slow-motion.
Nah, Uncharted 2 had at least one. I vaguely remember one of the chopper sequences having slow-mo.
punching someone there was some kind of slow-mo
I think he's referring to those unlockable "filters". IE: the next gen filter, slo-mo, etc. It sounds like UC3 won't have them.
"He also said that ND had to make adjustments to the game’s crushing difficulty setting as even many play testers found it impossible to complete the game on that mode." I hope they didn't dumb it down too much.
Dude, if no one who developed the game can beat it, then it's too hard.
@ MidnytRain You need to learn how to read key words. "Many play testers". In no reality does "Many" mean "Everyone". This reminds me of when Demon Souls had just come out and many reviewers were having problems beating stage 1. Many also gave up shortly after. I won't be shocked if it is harder, but still perfectly doable.
Reviewers play a game only once before writing about it. Testers hired to play/test the game, play through it multiple times, over and over. That's what they're for.
@NathanExplosion And as admiral said before, "many play testers". He didn't say "all play testers." It means that there were at least some who could complete it. And in no way are game testers better than all the hardcore gamers out there.
And neither are reviewers. I'm making a point that testers have more experience with a game than reviewers do.
"he also said that there will be no special effects like slow-mo sequences" Thats interesting because in the first three chapters of uncharted 3 there are quite a few slow motion sections. Eg: when he's in the city you see him slide down a roof and as hes in the air it goes into slow-mo before he crashes into a window.
Edit: double post :(
3.3 hours? thats longer than Dark Souls speedrun
Talk about sensationalism just to grab headlines. "Richmond revealed that one of their play tester had managed to speed run through Uncharted 3 in 3 hours and 8 minutes on Easy. Although he notes that this might be a cause of concern, but Richmond also said that Uncharted 2 was beaten in 2 hours by a play tester." Most people don't play games like that. Another misleading topic title to get hits, which goes to show works.
You would be an idiot to try and finish this game quickly as it would take you out of the story.
will be 15 hours or so for me. cant wait^^
Same here. If I wanted to beat it in 3.3 hours then I wouldn't bother buying it.
I guess this will take longer! can't wait!
LOOOOOL Failharted 3
There are many more games that can be beat in that time by speed running. If you dont do any side quests in fallout 3's main story it can be beat in less than 2hrs of play time.
And u lose a bubble
I hate to do speed run in games ! ATM, I am having a hard time beating ICO HD in 2 hours to get a gold trophy .
Play on the hardest difficulty or at least the difficulty below the highest & you'll be getting more than your moneys worth.. & then you've also got the multiplayer to get through.
IMO, the multiplayer is alright. It won't set the world on fire. I played a good amount of U2 multiplayer at my friend's house over the years, and I thought it as adequate in between BF3 and MW3 it might not have the legs, but we'll see. Either way, the uncharted series single player is analogous to the battlefield series multiplayer; one mode clearly excels of the other.
Arkham City's main story can be beat in about 9 hours if you just gun the main story and do nothing else.(I know this from experience), Action games shouldn't be super long with the main story so they can be played again and not feel like a chore.
Yeah the difference is Batman is 9 hours long as opposed to Uncharted that is only 3.3
I'm more or less just offering perspective. It was pointless of me in retrospect.
For me the perfect game is about 8 hours long for that very reason. I haven't ever gotten through Fallout 3 because I'm tons of hours into it and have barely scratched the surface. It's way too overwhelming for me.
They got the release dates backwards. Uncharted 3 is out November 1st in the US and November 2nd in the UK.
Zelda can be finished in under 10 minutes, ar least thats how long i could stand it before its sheer banality caused me to vomit onto my TV.
I never understand why anyone would want to speedrun through a game. Is that fun or something? I don't get it.
People doing stuff for a job aside... many do it for two key reasons. 1) Online Fame. 2) To say they did it. Look at it like this. Beating Dark Souls in X time was a "feat" and if you read this topic. 10/106 people referenced it. So you can get a lot of credit for doing something stupid like this vs playing the way you see fit.
Still buying it...
It would be so refreshing to see a game actively promoted as being three hours long. No fluff, just pure concentrated awesomeness.
Speed run must be done only if you know the game. Not playing uncharted for the story first in a huge mistake Hence this news is worthless
