Verdict: "Uncharted is a true next-gen experience, complete with the visuals and immersion gamers are often promised but seldom see. It has its problems, sure, but you'll learn to live with them just fine." Rating: 8 (out of 10)
Scoring doesn't matter anymore... The last week Uncharted has got 8 reviews in that were 9's and 10's and perfects. Yet, they're still sitting with 27 over all reviews tabulated on the % sites. That shows me nothing is even. Nothing. Even more so, to be fair why does the xbox 360 have over 81 sites on their gamerankin page that go for scores, yet the ps3 has 67 ? That doesn't make it fair to me. IT maks it a little uneven, if you ask me. I mean... 81 sites can give the xbox 360 game all 9's and 67 culd give the ps3 game all 9's and the xbox 360 game would still come out looking better for larger bulk % It's not fair and so many idiots are seeing this.
same can be said for the ps2 and ps1 generation by sheer ammount of games those systems will all ways look better.
I'm not sure about this review. I didn't read most of it. I read the part that talks about the problems. Too many gunfights is a problem? I don't get it. How can that be bad? Did they just have to find something to pick apart?
The people who buy PS3's DO NOT BUY GAMES. They wanted a BR player that had an option of playing games. Even I bought uncharted and I am more a 360 guy. F u Talyboy you "MO"
8 is not bad at all. who cares anyway the game rules. the game hasnt any revie under 8, i think that says enough about this amazingly fun game.
HonestPaidGamers review. yeah. on metascore, I'm waiting for like 10 reviews for ratchet that were 90 and up...
8/10 Means The Game Is Good Either its Reviewer is Biased or Not. I Could Care Less if it had a 10/10 Score or a 8/10 as Long That The Game is fun to Play.
I only Play GamEs With 10's LolAWlbnaanas
Then U Wont Be Playing a Lot Of Game This Year My Friend.
and go have fun doing nothing
hey good score :D one con they talked about was "gun fights around every corner". i think that was a little exaggerated. i found myself alone for a good part of the game exploring. i played thru first time on hard, and it wasnt that hard. i endorse this product :D
It is an exagerations... Hell, there are whole chapters in the game where you don't even shoot your damn gun, unless it's at a door to break the lock. I didn't shoot a person 1 in like 3 chapters of the game. The whole 2nd chapter and 3rd chapter had no shooting of any enemies... There was like 2 other chapters late in the game that didn't have any shooting, either. The catacombs chapter didn't have any in it, either. Right after you enter it and look for a way out. So these idiots saying it's non stop shooting need to go back and play it again.
ya i was kinda o.O when i read it. they arent very honest if you ask me. another reason why i dont look at scores anymore. i take all the pro's and con's, compare them to the plethora of reviews out there, and make an educated decision from there. scores dont hurt game play like crappy frame rate or lame controls. now, we are waiting on the next game. hope it comes sooner than later :D
A good score...hopefully starting next year we will start to see less 10/10..and more high eigths..meaning great game.. and a very good..game..get in the mid--9's..!!!
I am with you. Thikn about all of the craptastic games that have scores of 10/10. Now... What is Final Fantasy supposed to get? A 10/10 as well? Which means that Mass Effect is as good as it is? Same applies for Metal Gear. This year too many BS scores have been given out.
he said there were too many enemies...what a chump
I will take an honest 8 with : "There's no shortage of vistas and each is rendered with a fine eye for detail. It's completely convincing, whether you're traipsing through tall grass and brushing aside swaying fern fronds or splashing through a shallow pool of water and leaving ripples in your wake. The artists didn't take the usual shortcuts, either. Gone are the days when you'd look over an area you can't explore and see cardboard walls of blurry textures. Now, even those few places that are off-limits have true depth to them, so that you're almost never quite pulled out of the moment and back into the world of video games." Over a 10/10 with loading glitches. It doesn't appear the reviewer cares for shootouts. Thats 100%fine.. they aren't for everyone. But seeing as how this game plays as an action movie, what is to be expected. That is what a review should be.. Not overlooking all of the failures of a game just to prove the hype right. Im on my second time replaying the game.. at 36/60 treasures... and I still have to unlock crushing. I'm playing this game more than COD4/AssCreed. GOod job Naughty DOG!
8/10 on Sony great game...with a bunch of Halo3 ads beside the article... :) something wrong there...
They gave this game higher than a 7...
I just beat Uncharted today, and it is easily the best game of it's genre that I have played... It just has that perfect mix of Tomb Raider/Prince of Persia style acrobatics and puzzles, Gears of War-like gun combat, and a great cinematic presentation. I would highly recommend it to anyone that has a PS3 and enjoys a good action/exploration style game.
Honestly Your review SUCKS my sh!t ! Uncharted doesnt worth a 10 and it doesnt worth an 8. The best score is 9. 9 makes sense and is honest. Honestly I think fuk your website ! I can make a website and name it BestReviews.com and give 6 to everysingle xbox 360 games.
Why Would You put Every Xbox360 Games a 6 out of 10? Unless Your Rating is Biased Or the Fact Your a Angry Fanboy
Kareshi_X wow that was great. great reply.
He's a dumb ass!If your arm(in the game) doesn't reach out....DONT JUMP!! I cant believe he didn't figure that out!
Still a great score, and still the lowest mark the game has got so far.
I'm sorry but if you actually HAVE TO say you're an "honest" reviewer then it's likely you really aren't. Also, what does that imply? that there are others that aren't honest reviewers? Oh snap! I thought people who used to say review sites were corrupt were just crazy conspiracy noobs. XD
for this particular title should not be taken seriously. This game screams quality from start to finish and it's sad reviewers are finding the lamest of reasons to score it below 9/90. This is arguably the best visuals out today. Definitely the best on the PS3. Of course this is merely opinion but the graphics are simply stunning and almost surreal at times. The gameplay and controls are spot on and the story is compelling. It does feel like you are playing your part of a movie adventure. Sites and mags are proven they are driven by the dollar these days and not given honest unbias reviews any more. They review based on hype and $$$ and nothing more. I stopped reading reviews this year. Too many over rated and under rated games in 2007.
score is far to low for this fantastic game.
"One problem is the sheer volume of shootouts. It seems like you'll run into gun-toting goons around every bend. Checkpoints are frequent enough that you'll seldom have much trouble progressing, but it does start to get a little tedious when practically every corner means another confrontation." It's supposed to be an action/adventure title. So are we supposed to hope that we only have to shoot one or two guys on occasion? Honestly, this is easily the dumbest comment I've read concerning the game yet. It seems the reviewer missed the point completely and is being totally subjective about his material, rather than remaining objective. What an ass and what a pointless waste of reading.
