i see nothing wrong with the melee system ,and the game being linear.

APOFISBORICUA2247d ago

Be prepared for a lot of nit picking reviews for this game. No matter if its a 2 I will get it. It is like if they dont want it to be a high score game.

ASTAROTH2247d ago

I know what you means. There are games out that dont deserved the high scores. Take for example Arkham City. . . dont get me wrong its an amazing game but if you ask me, ARKHAN ASYLUM is a better game. Hey but ARKHAN CITY is more open so lets give it a 10. People seems to forget rapidly... they forgot how good ARKHAM ASYLUM was and they forgot how amazing the animations were not only in Uncharted 2:Amongst Thieves but also in Uncharted: Drakes fortunes.

So mi credibility for this review . . . 1/ 10

DasBunker2247d ago (Edited 2247d ago )

9.4 is a good score.. no game is perfect.. specially since reviews tend to be too opinionated and less objective..

plus if they gotta resort to nitpicking for the smallest things just means the game has very few flaws

EDIT: @ Below

inconsistencies in reviews is nothing new and has been present for ages now... and i doubt something changes soon..

"no game is perfect, no reviewer either."

I know that.. you know that.. whats the point then.. you know reviewers are gonna do w/e the fawk they want

ASTAROTH2247d ago

9.4 is a good review but the readings is what bothers me. . . they nitpick soo much. And saying some negatives about the animations is unforgivable. Dont come with the hipocritical statement that no game is perfect. I KNOW THAT.

This is like when some sites gave a game a 6 and then the sequel comes and improves everything . They said the sequel is better but they gave it a 4. Isnt that hipocritical? If the sequel was better dont you expect a better score?? Same happened with a great mayority of sequels on the three consoles. Mario Galaxy 2, Gears 3, Forza 4 ... all were better sequels yet score lower. Same with Resistance 3, Killzone 3 and others... no game is perfect, no reviewer either.

That was kinda an weird review, you would think that they were playing Splinter Cell the way they talked about stealth (as if that was the main aspect of the UC series). The linear part was kinda off as well (they wanted an open world experience lol). Good score though, I would still have gotten the game if they scored it a 2.

Welcome to game reviewers this generation.

-Alpha2247d ago (Edited 2247d ago )

Actually, it's not that this game is getting nitpicked, but people are more nitpicky about the reviews. UC is an exclusive, there are simply more eyes on the reviews than any other game.

I don't ever hear anyone complain about the nitpicking done to other games like Arkham City. You people need to accept that no game is ever perfect and if the reviewer felt that it was too linear then you cannot really say that he is being picky, he may just as well felt that the linearity detracted from the experience. Same goes for stealth. He's played the game, we haven't, yet I'm seeing people put down a 94 score and trying to damage control any sort of criticism.

@apo

Since when was a 9.4 considered a low score? I loved the first two games and based on what ive seen of it so far i sure ass hell know that i will love this one just as much if not more. But some people just need to chill out.

MaxXAttaxX2247d ago (Edited 2247d ago )

It's the third game in the series and some people act surprised.
It's like they've never played or known of a linear game before the Uncharted games were around. It hasn't stopped any game, including Uncharted, from being great.

@-Alpha,

I agree that no game is perfect, but these are hardly "flaws".

and this site is the only one so far, selected by metacritic

chaldo2247d ago

the melee system was disappointing? uh.. from what ive seen, it has IMPROVED. :D i do agree with the game being linear tho but idc. still getting the game.

GraveLord2247d ago

All games with a good story are linear.

Laxman2247d ago

The Elder Scrolls, Knights of the Old Republic, Fallout, Final Fantasy, Mass Effect, Splinter Cell (earlier ones), Metal Gear Solid, Dragon Age series' and I disagree with you.

This site is messed up. These's 2 Uncharted 3 tags so all the news are divided. Uncharted 3 and uncharted 3 Drakes Deception.

Pozzle2247d ago

I noticed that too. All the reviews are being split up because people are putting them under separate tags. So annoying ;/

GraveLord2247d ago

Its the same for Modern Warfare 3.
There's Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

GunFisher2247d ago (Edited 2247d ago )

I know it's a good score...don't think as me at not thinking a 9 is a bad score BUT....it's seems like the reviewer is nit picking at the so called "flaws"....so it's not the best stealth game, this aint Splinter Cell you know.

"Finally better animations"

Really....are they trying to say Uncharted never had good animations, Uncharted 2's were great, I didn't see anything wrong with them

GamersRulz2247d ago

"this aint Splinter Cell you know."

didn't you find a better example than Splinter Cell, because Conviction was more Action than stealth.

coolbeans2247d ago

There are more Splinter Cell games than Conviction. He/She could be harking back to the original SC formula.

floetry1012247d ago

@Gun Fisher, you do realise that the website is very roughly translated into english? "Finally better animations" could be taken in a number of ways.

Also, IT IS AN OPINION PIECE. You might not have a problem with the stealth system at all. Maybe he was expecting more. I hate how often I need to point this out to people.

younglj012247d ago

I really dont care what tha score is..You can rate UC3 0.1 and I will buy 3 copies just too be funny...

Pixel_Enemy2247d ago

This game is golden and deserves to be put on a pedestal and paraded through town. People who disagree are seriously fankids. Do yourself a favor and have mommy and daddy buy you a PS3 for christmas so you can stop missing out on real exclusives. There's no shame in owning both consoles.
