Ripten reviews Uncharted - 9.4/10 .

Another great review of this stellar ps3 title.
This is what the reviewer said :-

"Uncharted: Drake's Fortune thus succeeds in so many ways. It has the best console graphics to date, gob-smackingly good cutscenes, a modest yet twisting plot, an incredible soundtrack, perfect pacing and combat that you'll want to keep returning to. Only the simplicity of the platforming and puzzling, as well as the slow paced jetski levels hold it back from being a perfected masterpiece. But if you don't play this game, you really are missing out. You need to buy this game…right now. Because with games struggling to hit the wow factor this generation, this is one game that surely does, and should definitely be in your runnings for Game of the Year. So long, and make sure to mind your head on the way out. Drake, you devil you."

The story is too old to be commented.

WOW! So many 9's the last few days and none of them have made the lovely "unbiased" % sites you people love... I lost count how many 9's this game has had in the last 4 days and I see none of them on the sites. I'm keeping Gametv, Ripten and Destructoid in my peripheral vision, cause they're used like mad for xbox 360 games on those "unbiased" % sites and I've never seen a one of these be used for R&C or Uncharted... they've reviewed the games, mind you... But for some reason those % sites just don't wanna post them into the fold.

why is that? Uncharted has gotten 9's and 9.5's all week long... the % has never changed. R&C has 13 reviews out as we speak tha have not been added to the overall. Gamespot is a wash? Well, so are these junk ass % sites. the whole operation needs to go back to formula if you ask me. The whole review kit needs to be reinvented.

Why is it that OXM/Xboxfanmagazine/Xbox-thebl og/Xbox-the-cereal-box-site/ is all added? For Mass (loading..)(loading...)(stutte r)(elevator...loading) Effect?

ALl of the current Uncharted 9's have well over 300 reviews on the site. Which is the criteria.

CNET is basically owned by Microsoft, and CNET controls gamerankings and metacritic.

So very true. only the least informative little bit**es use these sites in their flame wars anyway.

Uncharted is Game Of The Year, NO Doubt about it. Fantastic game. Will not win awards. Sad, kind of like the Oscars.

Well users have to add the reviews so either gamerankings is not approving them or users didn't do their part. The catch with that is that only the sites bolded count towards the % so Uncharted is still under 90%. As for metacritic you can't do anything about what they choose to put up.

Anyway I agree with # 12, that tips the scale and is unfortunate.

when you get good at the fire fights and using cover you really do get blown away by the look of it all.

Uncharted is number 1 in graphics on the console market. Confirmed for a third time. lol

gamesblow3552d ago

Well, not confirmed if you go to those awesome "unbiased" % sites... cause you'll never hear them say it cause they love to block out any ps3 review over 8.5
