New Game Network: "The campaign is the weakest of the series with poor pacing, uninteresting locations and absent characters. Combat isn't as enjoyable and the platforming can be dull. Multiplayer is merely an average distraction."
Dang, the guy is just dumping on UC3 to the point where if you actually enjoyed UC3, you're made out to be crazy. Glad it isn't on metacritic. Edit: Uninteresting locations? Dull platforming? Unoriginal/absent characters? XD
Playing it now. Lame, untrue review. Sorry.
Its untrue because you don't agree with the score? Had it been a 10/10 with the same text, you wouldn't even notice. All you fanboys care about is the score, not the review itself.
The man has an opinion. Don't judge him/his work just because he doesn't share the same opinion as you.
'Had it been a 10/10 with the same text, you wouldn't even notice. All you fanboys care about is the score, not the review itself.' Wow... A dude cant dissagree with the score of a game hes actually paying without being called a fanboy. Some people never change Everbodys entitled to their own opinion but my opinion is its the same type of person that will be passive agressive towards people who disagree with an anomaly score on a great game on the 'other guys ' console.....they always want some well written full blooded comment to explain why people disagree with dodgey scores. You'll also notice that these same people are never spouting the same righteousness in the dumb score articles for their prefered consoles game. This SCORE given by the REVIEWER sucks in my opinion. U3 is not perfect, no but the best in its class...yes at best arguably at worst and 76 of 100 is nowhere near best in class
FUCK his Opinions thats not opinion thats TROLLING!!!
Uninteresting locations -- false. Locations are great. Dull platforming -- false. Not as good as UC2 but far from dull. Unoriginal/Absent Characters -- True. The new bad guys are one-note cliches, Cutter is under developed, Chloe and Ellena are cameos. Sully and Drake are awesome as always, but it's definitely the weakest of the three games in terms of story.
I love UC3 but agree with you on you'r last point about Unoriginal/Absent Characters .... Hope ND takes out a 3 year dev cycle for there next game and not 2!
Agreed. Agreed. Agreed. The MP is better this time 'round though. So, yay?
'From an enjoyment standpoint the campaign isn’t as fun as the original Uncharted.'. Agree.
i never go to metacritic dante, it goes like this uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 7/10 ( put on metacritic in a flash) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 10/10 (not put on metacritic) uncharted 3 5/10 (put on metacritic in a flash) either way uncharted 3 is an amazing game. i dont agree with the review but to each his own i guess.
Mama mia that would be considered spam.
Now metacritic is after sony now???
Say what you want about the guys post.....but he has a bloody good point Thats what it's been like....yet for a game like Batman AC it's been the oppsoite, those 7 or 8 out of 10 scores aren't on the site yet all the perfect ones are.
rofl... you DO realize that the only reviews that appear on Metacritic are from approved Websites.... NOT based on review score, but where it was published.
same thing happened with MGS4 and bluedot133 - the guy that owns the MC site is the one who picks the websites that go on MC......so does that make sense?....i don't think so.
Metacritic does not pick and choose reviews for each individual game. They have a set list of publications whose reviews they include for every title, which you can see here: http://www.metacritic.com/b... People are so quick to call out bias that is not even there. It's truly pathetic. So a bunch of no-name blogs that gave the game a 10 are not included? Of course they're not. But Uncharted 3 already has 22 perfect reviews listed on Metacritic. Overall it has 83 positive reviews, 1 mixed review, and 0 negative reviews. Metacritic could sooner be considered biased in Uncharted 3's favor than biased against it.
That is because every fanboy has his own site to post reviews and gets them aproved here on N4G. I don't judge games by metacritic, but at least they try to use, what they think are, ligit sites.
@bluedot But what makes a site approved by metacritic? Some of these don't even sound reputable, the A.V club, GameCritics,Pelit? Gameshark.... bloody hell a gameshark was a gameboy cheat device. And seriously the gamecritic review was a joke, dude compared the game to apple products, only played half.... and rented it from blockbuster. HOW CAN A SITE BE APPROVED IF THEY HAVE TO RENT THE GAMES THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO REVIEW?
NGN is New Growing Nerds
Is this reviewer serious, your right with the fact that this guy is out of his mind, and i'm happy this aint on metacitic, it would look so bad
"The campaign is the weakest of the series" really? are you saying uncharted 1 had a better campaign? does not make sense to me.
I preferred the story/narrative in UC1, and believe that's what is being referred to, but I agree that the actual game/campaign is better in UC3.
I just borrowed Uc3 last night I'm about 5 1/2 hours in and I'll say it is the weakest of the trilogy but still miles ahead of most campaigns. The reviewer is one of "those guys", you know the ones who like to go against the grain...even though I don't think a 76/100 is a bad score the actual review is crap. The locations for Uc3 though have been great I've really liked the atmosphere.
Screw you for borrowing and not buying.
Bought the first 2 new and the GOTY UC2 new, plan on buying 3 so I can play the online but have no money so sorry...
In my opinion, UC1 had the best story. But the action sequences in UC3 are amazing. The burning building, the plane, even the desert. It was all amazing.
That was to be expected since ND admitted that they thought of the set-pieces first, and then tried to make a story around it.
I'll admit, I preferred the locations of Uncharted 2, mainly because I think the Himalayas is a more atmospheric location than the Arabian desert and because I am more accustomed to colder environments. But to say that Uncharted 3 had uninteresting locations is downright bullshit. For the entire desert section I honestly felt as if I could touch the sand because it was so beautifully rendered. In both Yemen and Columbia, I stopped in my tracks quite a few times to observe the extremely detailed surroundings. There is also much more variety in Uncharted 3's campaign than Uncharted 1. There is no way Uncharted 1 was superior, at least in my opinion.
The locations in 3 are mostly superb, for sure. Problem is that you either don't care why you're there, or in the worst cases, there's really no point being there at all (the whole pirate ship sequence).
- Thank you newgamenetwork.com! the game imo wasn't as good as UC2, i mean the first half of the game was slow and boring with lame puzzles, quite disappointed with no real ending battle too... and just the ending in general add to that the dumb AI and drake's overdone animations made him look and feel drunk he sort of staggers everywhere! plus aiming and platforming problems, and i thought the hit detection was a bit loose in MP....giving this game a perfect score is nonsensical. personally i traded the game for skyrim
skyrim is just BEAST!!!!] great choice
I agree 100 % with you Jappy
WOW - was not expecting that...
Wow, seriously can't believe anyone would approve this obvious crap.
Sh!tty review with a bunch of spoilers in it. Don't waste your time.
Ah well some people appreciate the good in life....Shame this bludy morons jumped off a cliff.....
to late I finished the game 4 times :D maybe I should trade it after I saw the score from this guy lol
another hungry site.
a troll review to grab some hits. nothing more nothing less
I think should be some place like metacritics, just to notice what reviewers (movies, music and games) should be avoided just for been trolls, and also avoid giving traffic to them.. And to all those who say opinions in reviews are ok, u should notice that to review something u must be objetive, what u like and dislike has nothing to do with been objetive. I dun like romantic movies, so if i want to review one, and i say it sucks cause its romantic, thats a review? The right thing would be to talk about performance of actors, ambientation, dialogue etc.
Drake is like the Bruce Willis of games full of impossible action sets and immortal i dont like Uncharted since U2 came out Uncharted Drakes Fortune is my all time fav game
Well the reviewer has his own opinion but as a gamer playing the game, I think my opinion is better because its all about my experience in the end and I'm loving every minute of the game~
The reviewer has a right to his opinion but his opinion is delusional in my opinion. If you're going to share your opinion, be prepared to be judged based upon that opinion. If you think people have a right to their opinion but shouldn't be judged on it, you're living in a la la land that is void of common sense.
I agree the story is the weakest of the 3 games,plus all the bugs I encountered didn't help it either but overall the game is good not mind blowing amazing as some may have you believe.
I love how I keep getting disagrees without a response to to my post,sad butt hurt fanboys.
Good comment.... idgit
My suggestion is don't let them know your insecure of the disagrees that way you won't make them feel better by reacting to it. Make your 2 cents and then move on. Its the best policy around here.
This game deserves no less than a 10/10, that is all il say. Iv already said it enough times before and im tired of saying it. This game is amazing, so will some people just shut up and stop hating on this game for no reason.
Thats your opinion, not everyone agrees with it, like this reviewer. Just because its different from yours doesn't make it wrong.
the time when reviews we not opinions...
i do agree with most of his points, but i would give the score a little higher than that
I gotta admit, I agree with the lack of quips during gameplay. I would have liked more witty banter between Drake and Sully. Or even Drake and Cutter (was it just me, or did Drake seem to not like Cutter much? lol). I would have liked more funny conversations like "He's above you, he's above you! He's below you, he's below you!" and "You brought a hooker to church?!" But that's only a small complaint and doesn't even warrant a lower score imo.
I have to admit I was a little disappointed with UC3, the flashback to when you play Drake as kid and how he met Sully, though it adds to the story, the actual gameplay your not doing much. Along with being stuck in the desert...again your just walking around. I get your in a desert and the scenery does look amazing but it's not really fun. The end was kind of weak as well, though the end to UC2 final boss was annoying and kind of a pain in the ass...I thought UC2 was better game, it was faster pace, more gunplay, and loaded with action all the way through. Naughty Dog is a beast, the way they keep pushing themselves, their attention to detail and the things they do leave me speechless, this is how every PS3 game should look
This guy should play Uncharted 1, and then come back tell us if Uncharted 3 still has the worst pacing. Honestly the the first game is the worst, arena after arena of shooting pirates. Not only that but after clearing some arenas you get more spawning on you as if the devs actually thought more enemies made it harder. It's ND's first game for a reason and clearly they have learnt that balance in shooting versus cinematics is a must, something clearly demonstrated with this game.
... except it wasn't ND's first game.
As in, ND's first game in the series, I am discussing this in context of Uncharted after-all.
the reviewer is a bit harsh on the scoring. I do agree with some points especially the ending and not as good as UC2, i thought ND did improve some aspects quite a bit. I didn't like the shooting mechanic though, it seems to have gotten worst for some reason. There are certain things that doesn't make sense either like the armor guys can take a couple of hits from the RPG, but you can use the same thing to blow up a boat they were in.....something doesn't seem right... I would give it a solid 9
So, everybody knows now about newgamenetwork.com. Trolling work = good pr.
another site looking for hits
agreed, this game is worth atleast a 9
So untrue, its a great game and deserves more credit than this guy is giving it
