Gamekult: Uncharted 3 Review

Gamekult writes: In late 2009, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves arrives on PS3, grabbing a quick one the title of GOTY (Game of the Year - Game of the Year) and the most beautiful game console that can hold be to this day. It is with a pretty huge pressure on the shoulders that Naughty Dog offers us Uncharted 3: The illusion of Drake, a product that has an obligation to do even better than its excellent predecessor. A bar placed high, but it should still be remembered that nothing scares Drake.

I guess we know why they're a kult.

How do you know IGN isn't a hit whore for giving UC3 a 10/10 and for milking the review over the weekend?

Maybe, just maybe, people have a difference of opinion?

Personally I don't care for the random sites like this one, but I wish people would stop getting upset over reviewers who may not give it the score you want. It only happens with the Uncharted reviews, never saw people defend Arkham City or Battlefield when those games got <9 scores

buddymagoo2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )

I'd like to know what games scored higher!? Currently 94 on Metacritic, Well done Naughty Dog!

Alpha and Logic have nothing but praise for games like Gears 3 but Uncharted 3 and all the spite seems to flow, strange? And to think you both consider yourselves neutral.

"How do you know IGN isn't a hit whore for giving UC3 a 10/10 and for milking the review over the weekend?"

Hit the nail right on the head Alpha.

-Alpha2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )


What I despise is the majority here who are hawking every Uncharted review and shredding any negative they see to pieces as either non-essential or "nitpicking" I can already tell that if anybody dares to criticize UC3 they are going to get torn, people have built up a huge wall around Uncharted 3 and any opposing opinion is treated as factually incorrect.

If people are going to attack UC3 review sites I expect consistency for the other games. Yet I don't recall so many people criticizing the nitpickings in AA or BF reviews. Instead I'm hearing people bickering that it "only" happens to PS3 games, despite the fact that they "only" pay attention to the PS3 reviews. That's what I "spite"

Kingdom Come2342d ago

"websites giving uc3 lower than 9 are clearly hits whores .... ign 10 and gametrailers 9.5 is a proof ...."

IGN before today received nothing but hate from the N4G Community and Gametrailers gave Modern Warfare 2 9.5.

E2M2342d ago

@ -Alpha how many games does ign actually give a 10? probably about 5-6 in their existance. They don't need the hits the site is big enough as it is get plenty of attention. It would be hypocritical though to agree with them if they gave a 10 but rage at them if it were to have been lower

Bathyj2341d ago

Did someone say Logic considers himself "neutral."


Yeah, I see him in PS3 threads spreading his neutrality all the time. /s

badz1492341d ago

and then BAMMM 8/10! doesn't that mean 9 and 10 or even 8.1 is impossible? or are they not really understanding the meaning of the word "BEST"?

BattleAxe2341d ago (Edited 2341d ago )

Gamekult are a bunch of NOOBS. Here are some other ratings they've given to some other games:
Uncharted 3............................. .8/ 10
God of War Collection.................8/1 0
Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection.8/10
BatMan: Arkham City...................8/10
Gears of War 3........................8/10
Splinter Cell: Conviction.............7/10
Fallout: New Vegas....................7/10
Portal 2............................. .... .7/10
Gran Turismo 5........................7/10
LA Noire......................... .....7/10
Infamous 2............................. ..7 /10
God of War Origins Collection......6/10
Mafia 2............................. ... ..5/10

Gamekult is a waste of time.

SilentNegotiator2341d ago

Gamekult are one of the few idiots that Sony actually had to blacklist (Kotaku also being on there). I'll take any of their reviews with a barrel full of grains of poo.

Reviewers are perfectly allowed to give games a score lower than 10, I hope you realise?

fluffydelusions2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )

But what qualifies one as a reviewer? They need to have credibility. You can't just go trusting anyone.

WolfLeBlack2342d ago

@fluffy. True, you can't just trust anyone, but a review is ultimately an opinion of a game, no matter how neutral the reviewer remains, and so not every score for this game is going to be a ten :)

Brownghost2341d ago

Exactly it's their opinion everyone should just chill and if they don't like the score then don't care and get the game.

SilentNegotiator2341d ago (Edited 2341d ago )

Before pulling out the "It's jus their opinionz!" card, understand this:

Gamekult has been blacklisted by Sony.
Thus they did not receive an early copy.
And the earliest release date isn't until the first of November.

So they either bought a copy off of another, more credible reviewer, or they don't actually have a copy.

They've at least been established as being a malicious site, and on top of that, they might be outright lying and basing their review off of others'.

So I wouldn't so much call this their "opinion" as much as their typical load of garbage.

Make sure to know the site before defending any "opinion" from anyone with a mouth or working fingers and a keyboard.

You haven't even played it yet.

Tarantino_Life2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )

Neither have you to defend it ( The review )

coolbeans2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )


You need to understand how to argue. Let me help you out, in my first reply "You haven't even played it yet" I'm insinuating that gravemaker's post "8 is way too low" has no grounds since HE hasn't played the game yet. Never did I state my knowledge on the game or the review itself, only stating that since the game isn't out yet gravemaker has no right to assume what score is "too low" (neither do I).

I beg of you, stop trying to make condescending statements when you have no reason to do so. This community could at least ACT civilized once and a while.

Dante1122342d ago

They gave GeOW3 an 8 too.

"we all know uncharted 3 is a better game!!"

Blatant fanboyism

buddymagoo2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )


According to metacritic Uncharted 3 currently IS the better game. Why are you so quick to call people out?

U3 -94 GeoW3 -91

Obelisk922340d ago (Edited 2340d ago )

Uncharted does some things right, GeoW does some OTHER things right.

That's fair. Which one is better is up to you: if you prefer a breathtaking, cinematic experience, then Uncharted is your game; but if you like some pure hardcore TPS gaming, GeoW is more like it.

They're both polished and extremely good games, so... just make a choice and play.

I personally like Uncharted more, i find it more entertaining, but another person could easily like GeoW more. It's a matter of tastes, guys.

Obelisk922342d ago

They like to give low (and with "low" i mean "below average) scores for hits. They gave LBP a 7, for example.

Just ignore them.

french_one2341d ago

7/10 is below average ? New mathematics !

Oner2341d ago (Edited 2341d ago )

Reading comprehension ~ Look into it...what he said is correct.

Simply put for the simple minded - If the average of a game is 95% than a 70 or even 80% is "below average".

It's really not that hard to understand. And is completely valid when you look at the whole picture CORRECTLY.

Obelisk922341d ago

Thanks Oner, exactly what I meant. lol

Obelisk922340d ago

I agree on this, but for videogames it has been like this since the beginning.

Gamekult is perfectly neutral website (maybe a little oriented PC and Nintendo).
Trunks, the reviewer, is neutral at 100%. He loved the game, but was hoping more surprises of gameplay...
I'm not agree with him, but i respect his opinion.

Gamekult is surely one of the best sites for reviews, if you don't just read the score...

P_Bomb2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )

I wholeheartedly disagree. Gamekult and I have never, EVER shared the same tastes/verdicts. From their site:

Heavy Rain...6/10
Yakuza 3...6/10
Yakuza 4...7/10
Uncharted Drake's Fortune...7/10
inFamous 2...7/10
Resistance FOM...7/10
Resistance 2...7/10
Resistance 3...7/10
Killzone 3...7/10
Gran Turismo 5...7/10
Motorstorm Pacific Rift...7/10
Motorstorm Arctic Edge...7/10
Motorstorm Apocalypse...7/10
Demon's Souls...8/10
Even a collection like ICO/SOTC Collection...8/10

Assembly line scores. U3 looks to be no exception.

People talk about Edge a lot, but if all those 7/10s aren't a red herring for just dialing it in, I don't know what is.

ksense2342d ago

seems like a genuine hatred for ps3 exclusives as far as i am concerned

Disccordia2342d ago

What have they given to 360 exclusives?

Why o why2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )

Yeah, im interested to see what scores they give the 360 and wii games but not that interested to look myself...lazy, maybe.

Seems 8 is that sites score for the better games across the board. *lowers pitchfork*

callahan092342d ago

Jesus Christ these guys are haters if those scores are true! It's like 7 is the default score for a Sony game, except that odd, rare, incredibly excellent game they'll deign to throw an 8 at it. What have they given to Microsoft and Nintendo's exclusives, if I might ask?

I mean... LBP & LBP2 both got 7/10? Is this for real? How is it possible to be that much of a hater.

callahan092342d ago

OK, did some research... looks like they've never given a 10 before, and only a few 9's.

360 Exclusive 8+ Scores:
Radiant Silvergun (9)
Alan Wake
Ms. Splosion Man
Gears of War 3
Guardian Heroes
Forza 4
Dance Central 2

PS3 Exclusives 8+ (all are 8's by the way):
Demon's Souls
God of War Collection
Ico & Shadow of the Colossus
Uncharted 3

Twice as many for 360.
Strange taste in games these guys have, I have to say.

They have like an unbelievable amount of 8's and 9's for Nintendo games.

The comment above that said they are Nintendo & maybe PC leaning is way on the money, holy crap.

ilovemyps32342d ago

man, gamekult and and 1 or 2 more french websites/magazines, ALWAYS score ps3 games like shit. ALWAYS.

i remember the day GT5 was released, the seller (a french guy), in the shop , ) was sooo happy, gt5 had scored a 14/20 on
we could see the guy loved forza, he even told me i should not buy the game, after that 14/20.
these websites, like gamekult, are references to french players.

seriously, how can you give a 7/10 to killzone 3, 7/10 to an uncharted, etc ?? heavy rain, 6/10 ??
did you really play those games ?? did you play in a full hd tv, or you were using your old "minitel", as the main display ?

how did your gamepad look like ? white with 2 red buttons (a/b) ?

come on, "bande d'abrutis", you can play games if you like, but please, stop reviewing them...

just write a list of all the games coming next month/year, and give it 6 and 7 to all of them.
no need to review the games. JUST score them 6 and 7, and that's OK.

we, gamers, don't really need your "professional reviews", made by the most professional, intelligent and handsome journalists of the world, i'm talking about, of course, YOU, the french ones.

i'm sure unchartec 3 isn't 10 times better then UC2, but i'm pretty sure graphics and textures are better, sound is better, music is better, puzzles are bigger and tougher, the story is at least as cool as on uncharted 2, say, everything should be AS GOOD as UC2, but knowing Naughty Dogs, i'm sure the game is really amazing.

REALLY, your dumb assholes, how can you score UC3 a 7/10 ?? uncharted 2 came out, and i can't remember any game that wowed me like UC2 did: those mountains in tibet, the village, everything was amazing. 2 years later, no game have achieved that quality.

HOW can you score UC3 7/10 ?? HOw ??

people will call me a fanboy, etc, but really, uncharted 3 and Naughty Dogs don't deserve that.

They work hard so we can play an amazing game, they don't deserve that.
shame on you, gamekult, shame on you.

you hate ps3 and ps3 games.we're fine with that. but please, just don't play them, and don't review them. if you want people to visit your website and click on google ads, all you'll get is hate, but not a single click.

ok, now that you gave your 7/10 to UC3, you can go back to your minitel, and watch your erotic "3615 code ULLA".

don't worry if you aren't 18, your daddy used his ID card, but don't go to bed after 2 am, tomorrow you go to school!!

game kult... unlike uncharted 1, 2 or 3, nobody will remember you in 10 years. actually, you don't exist at all.

LMAO @ the 7/10 stamp! Someone check them for a pulse. That's the laziest site I've probably come across on metacritic.

Goozex2342d ago

This website is trying to be too controversial with this review and get hits. U2 dserves at least a9 or 10.

Goozex2341d ago

U3 I meant. I had a very long day today.

Dr Face Doctor2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )

Oh man, a game got a great score instead of a perfect score! We must burn the heretics! They must be trying to generate traffic with their ATROCIOUSLY LOW SCORE.

God damn you people are sensationalist.

renegade2342d ago (Edited 2342d ago )

Ofcourse they trying to get the attention just like ign's ''10''. 8 is good score though

nycredude2341d ago

I don't know if you guys saw the comment above pretty much detailing many of their scores. It appears 7 is the go to score for these guys for so many games that average way above a 7. That pretty much shows this site is crap.
