The UK TV Gaming Show PlayR has apparently aired a new episode which contained a video review of Uncharted 3 and one of the forum members of the official Uncharted 3 forums have viewed it.
9/10, very nice. So the lowest score so far for Uncharted 3 is a 90%. Sweet, still a great score.
Sweet score. The reviews are looking good so far. Wonder why they thought it was short? Most of the earlier reviews rounded it off at being completed in 8-12 hours depending on your play style (3 hours if you speed through lol). Edit: @ psb Earlier reviewers, as well as Greg Miller (IGN, podcast) and Nowgamer mentioned in tweets that it was about the same length as Uncharted 2.
Uncharted 1 and 2 took me maybe like 9-11 hours each, that includes me looking for treasures while going through the campaign.
Honestly, i think its because the campaign is so engaging the reviewers probably felt it was shorter then it actually was and so they gave it a negative for what was really a positive.
9/10!? Who reviewed this!?!? WHERE IS HE? I'm gonna find that reviewer and pluck his eyes out, eat his children and burn his house down!!! /s
Sounds kinda violent? but I respect your enthusiasm and obvious love for the Uncharted series lol. :)
You're going to bum his house down. I definately want to witness that! :P
Uncharted 2 took me 9 hours to complete on my first playthrough... 2 hours more than its prequel. Actually, I don't really care much about longevity... I'd rather play 5 breathtaking hours than 10 boring hours... OF COURSE I hope it will be long AND breathtaking. This is Naughty Dog after all, they're beasts.
EDGE gave UC3 a 9/10!!!
mentions that the sp campaign is too short. First the 3.3 hours speed run and now this. I hope it's at least 6-8 hours long.
I guess it depends on if you rush through or not. UC2 took me exactly 12 hours. Length was good enough for me I'm hoping co-op adventure is a decent length too
I think I did it in 11 hours on hard. I started playing in the morning and I finished it the same day. Do you know if the campaign will be longer/shorter than Uncharted 2's campaign?
No, I don't know. I did it on hard and explored much as possible before moving on. I did a playthrough on Crushing and collected all the trophies so my total runtime with UC2 was 25 hours for campaign and probably double that for MP/Co-Op
I hope people are not expecting the same scores as Uncharted 2 though. I think the chances of U2 surpassing U3 on metacritic are very slim. I do think Uncharted 3 is the better game, from what I saw so far they improved a lot. I hope people will not be disappointed if the game doesn't surpass U2 in scores. Edit: Does anyone know when the reviews come in? Someone told me in a couple of hours.
Those focusing on review score averages on Metacritic for quality analysis in this day and age of biased and inconsistent, unprofessional journalism are foolish. Not only that, but directly comparing scores as any sort of comparison of quality is redundant task. Expectations change and unreasonably often. Uncharted 3 might not reach Uncharted 2's lofty 96, but we all know it's the better game in almost all areas.
Also, the speed run was done by a tester, who after multiple hours of playing through the game numerous times, managed a speed run of 3 hours on Easy mode.
Oops, double post.
Wow, can't wait for the online reviews to go live, so far so good.
8 days left >.<...
"Too short vs. We want more" If its as long as Uncharted 2 I dont care, I puped 50hours in the Singleplayer alone!
I played a few times with infinite ammo and the grenade launcher. Or just infinite grenades. I enjoyed spamming grenades everywhere. I like grenades.
It's not going to be too short for me... everyone says it's 8-12 hours depending on gamestyle, plus im going to platinum it, so it'll take a few playthroughs and treasure hunting.... nd then sweet co-op missions and MP.
If this is a review shouldn't it be "review" instead of "news"?
Can we get a confirmation of the score PlayR gave Among Thieves?
So hyped, want to play it right now!
I will have my vengeance
You're looking for March 2010, this is November 2011.
only 9.0! pre-order canceled.
I used to watch PlayR when it was on Bravo but I think that channel has ceased broadcasting. We don't get Showcase channel with Virgin Media. Shame. :(
