Eurogamer: Uncharted 3 Review

"Uncharted 3 is narrow, focused and ultimately shallow. It is a majestic tribute to cinema, a movie game in the literal sense, and your enjoyment will be in precise step with your appreciation of that objective - and whether or not you believe it to be Drake's great deception, or Drake's great delight."

And that site is always Eurogamer.

I have a feeling this will get even hotter than the IGN's article.

Eurogamer sure knows how to maintain their site don't they?

jaosobno2278d ago

I wish they removed "Euro" from their name. As an European I don't want to be affiliated with their site. This review is Eurogamer's moronic business as usual.

Jobesy2278d ago

Really? I thought it was Edge. Or Destructoid. Now its Eurogamer lol. Fanboys lol. Its just a score.


We give it an 8/10
Why you ask? Well that's easy...
-1 it's shallow
-1 it's a sequel

Oh, and were Eurogamer, our word is GOLD.

inveni02278d ago

When every other site so far goes 9+, seeing one site go low 8 just ruins credibility... It has nothing to do with bias towards systems, genres, etc. It's clearly a play for viewership.

Iroquois_Pliskin2278d ago

omg.... Its eurogamer guys :\ move along nothing to see here

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32278d ago

It's not always Eurogamer, it's also Destructoid. They drink a lot of h8terade...I'm joking, people have a right to their opinion.

MAJ0R2278d ago

just so you guys know, Uncharted 2 got 1 8/10 score

They must think they are the cool kids pretending to not like "The new trend." Either way Critics love Uncharted 3 and some of even called it the greatest game ever.

What to take from it all??? Buy the game, play the game!

Ayepecks2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

How the heck was my previous comment voted immature despite being agreed with? Gosh damn is the bubble system ever broken on this site.

nix2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

oh you Eurogamer...

even IGN gave it like 10/10 for christ sake. i know most of the users here are saying that "PS3 fanboys bash IGN every time... but when it gives PS3 exclusive perfect scores everyone salutes the site"...

i think you all guys are missing a point. IGN gave it 10/10. the 'most of the time PS3 hating site' gave it 10/10. even they agree that UC3 is a great game. just get it part and get over with your rant.

But then again... we have sites like these. sigh.

EDIT: @CommanderTK: for someone who really has issues with 'fanboys' cribbing so much.. you sound like a sour grape. chill.

MaxXAttaxX2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

Why does Eurogamer act like they've never played a linear game before?
There I said it.
It's like no good linear games ever existed before Uncharted came around.

There's nothing wrong with linearity. It just has to be done right.
And Uncharted is an exemplary linear game.

miyamoto2278d ago

UC3 is already universally acclaimed as one of the greatest game of all time at this point in time eurocamper g4tv gamespot & edge's opinions are decimated to irrelevance.

First score below a 9. These guys are gonna get trolled lol

-PINNER-2278d ago

I actually read the review and I understand his point of view on the lack of freedom. But that is exactly what I love and have come to expect from this franchise. Since when does every game have to give you a sense of freedom to be considered good? I respect his opinion about the game, but it sure felt like he focused a lot on what he didn't like and very little on what he did like.

As far as I'm concerned Naughty Dog can rinse and repeat this script over and over, there have been few games in my 26 years of gaming that have brought me this much joy.

fluffydelusions2278d ago

Eurogamer always the odd ones out of the lot.

omi25p2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

No they are not. If you actually read the review its understandable why they gave it an 8.

They say the GAME removes alot of the choices of the player which makes the game more like an interactive movie rather than a game.

Its a good review and reading through the comments on this site accusing eurogamer of being ANOTHER biased reviewer just shows the maturity of people of this site.

Ive never seen Eurogamer give scores just to get hits and i dont know why they'd start now. If some one can prove they have done it before il except they are biased. But untill then your all imature.

Also im not at all saying Uncharted 3 is a bad game, I havent played it but i know Uncharted 2 was good so i have high hopes for this one.

It was either going to be Eurogamer or Edge really wasn't it.

CliffyB was right; Eurogamer are haters.
Gears 3 deserved a better score than the 8/10 they gave it, and going by the scores from other sites and publications, Uncharted 3 deserves better as well.

plmkoh2278d ago

They probably just did that to troll everyone from both camps.

Dante1122278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

They could've given it a 1 and I would still buy UC3. Besides, the shock reviews from IGN and Gametrailers seems to still have me dazed.

despair2278d ago

its eurogamer, if its higher than 8/10 then its probably a street fighter game.

IrishAssa2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

There's 2 so far...

Love when people can't accept a good score, U1 was a 7 to me and U2 an 8. Opinions are like arseholes...

Not a fan of looks being the main attraction. Uncharted is loved because it's so cinematic.

Ezio20482278d ago

you screwed my mood Eurogamer!!!!!!!!!:(:(

kramun2278d ago

Shouldn't you be busy playing it? I mean, you did get an early copy of your company didn't you?

BushLitter2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

^ Yes he did say that, and I recall that we are all still waiting for him to post pics as proof.

Ezio20482278d ago

ok guys ...yeah i agree i lied.

i accept... i am sorry!!:(

but really Eurogamer you s**k!!!!!!

Neckbear2278d ago

I just love how a disagreeing, actually different opinion is held in a negative manner rather than an equal one.

Whatever happened to individuality? Reviewers also have their right to showcase it. And, as the review stands, the score is much fitting to the opinions of the reviewer himself.

torchic2278d ago


best comment I've seen in a long time ahahaha 10/10

miyamoto2278d ago

Damage comtrol sites are a tuff nut to crack! Hope they repent soon. Dont take these scores personally ...politics is all about the money.

syanara2278d ago

this sounds like a very narrow minded review with the way he describes the story. giving little or no attention to emotional or dramatic arcs than the other reviews give attention to it begs the question of what effect aspect really does have?

"Uncharted 3 is on par with Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 according to the same reviewer."

SnuggleBandit2278d ago

The hater review for hits. I expect a couple more of these honestly. Lol they gave U1 a 9 and U2 a 10.

Kingdom Come2278d ago

Perhaps they considered Uncharted 3 less of a progression from it's predecessor than Uncharted 2 was to the original. Perhaps they considered it more of the same...

MaxXAttaxX2278d ago

They gave Super Street Fighter 4 a 10/10.

Besides, Uncharted is NEVER just "more of the same".
Each game treats you to a DIFFERENT adventure, each with a unique story, character progression, completely DIFFERENT locales from one game to the next(and within each game).
