Canada.com reviews Uncharted Drake's Fortune.
It's quite obvious Microsoft paid off Canada
Oh wow how ignorant not just because your blatant fanboy remark but the fact that Canada would stoop so low(I am Canadian btw)
you know what thats the 2nd time this week I've been accused of being anti canadian I am a canadian...and i am jokingggggggggg I'll chnage my DP ... I thought it was obvious that it was a joke:S
My mistake well in your original post you should have put like "sarcasm" or somethng like that, sorry for the attack
it's quite obvious that M$ pays toughNAME to troll all Uncharted post..!!!
no worries TwissT a fellow Canadian would be interested in this http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/... --- I can't believe I actually got an agree on my first comment silly conpiracy-filled Meus
Is he paid for his opinion? Too much boom? What a dork. My recommendation to him is either buy Tomb Raider or make his own tomb raiding game. Naughty Dog never said this game is Tomb Raider. It's Uncharted. A better game.
Two things that annoys me about these kinds of reviews is 1) how often it compares Uncharted to Tomb Raider and 2) the length of the review. I don't know whether the reason the reviewer didn't point out Gears of War and Prince of Persia, using instead Tomb Raider and Myst, is an indication of him as a gamer, but its growing tiresome to hear him basically saying its just pieces of another game. If you play enough FPS, RTS, and especially RPG, you really must stop looking at the similarities and instead look towards what makes a game unique to appreciate it. Can't people just take a piece of work by itself anymore? If you read through any novel and simply compare it to all the great classics you've ever read, you'll never come to truly appreciate it.
but the thing is the more you play the game the more you see that Uncharted has nothing in common with Tomb Raider gameplay wise...similar cover system to gears..ala Killswitch.. not to mention it seems Naughty Dog was also a big fan of Resident Evil 4
The review was actually too long as far as I'm concerned. The title ruined the whole review. And then you're forced to read all his drivel since you can't see an easy way to see what he thinks. Just a bunch of nothing really.
I think this game has more in common with gears than Womb Raider. I am having a blast with it. One of the best all round games ever. The cinematics are beautiful the ledge climbing is cool with all the different animations the whole package just feels right. I love the shotgun so satisfying the way the baddies fly back like they got hit with a wrecking ball.
i disagree with canada. More boom is always cool. and uncharted is awesome.
one bad review vs many AAA reviews. Plus this one was in canada! (yes i went there)
A C T I V A T E D ! ! Great game, but I found myself agreeing more with this review than disagreeing.
xbot 720... M$ promises no more RROD...
Don't let this fool trick you... He always lies when he gets stuck and tries to say he owns a PS3. Please realize he is a liar. He is a big, green,sticky, RROD, XBOT. XBOT. Uncharted is number one in boom lighting and GRAPHICS. That's what Gametrailers, Ign, and Ripten say.
careful Razer - if you dont come out with absolute adoration and awe for uncharted, the sony fankids will start attacking you with their bizzare nonsensical drivel and personal attacks... damn, too late....
I believe razer is a psycho.
Yawn... Uncharted kicks ass. Cut it how you want. It's a slice of Ass Kick in your face, either way. This site is obviously sent out to stop the overwhelming praise the game has garnered. Over 25 9+ reviews and counting. When's it stop?
your Dad is gonna kick your ass when he finds out how late you stay up posting kaka and on top of that you got peanut butter on his keyboard again jackson!!! ooooooooooh your gonna get it!!!!
Well....everybody is entitled to their opinion, I guess....
This is a typical "Blair Witch" effect here. After Blair Witch came out every movie that had a hint of using a handheld camera whether it was a professional film or just a home movie capturing a baby's first moments was immediately accused of being a blatant "Blair Witch rip-off" Here you have a game that used a Jungle setting and some people seem to think that the makers of Tomb Raider copyrighted the sole rights to making the only games that have jungle settings. Whatever game is released after it and has a jungle setting will shall be and forever be a Tomb Raider rip off.
The funny thing. Crash Bandicoot was set in a jungle... It predated Tomb Raider even. now what? Idiots... I mean, Sly Stallone was doing action movies well before Vin Desil knew he needed to shave the pubic hair off the top of his head. Comparrisons are absurd at best. Uncharted not only stands on its own... It kicked Lara right in the [email protected] The even worse aspect here... Uncharted has 4 levels set in the jungle. that's it. Out of 22... The jungle, I'd love to stress this for those that do not know, plays a very minor role in this game. So minor you actually wish you were back in it at times. Trust me... Uncharted is everything Tomb Raider wishes it could be. FUN and playable and both at the same time.
I don't disagree that Uncharted is better than Tomb Raider and Yes Crash did predate Tomb Raider but not by much and at that time the Blair Witch effect was not in full steam anywhere else.
...but I seriously can't take any game reviews from a site called Canada.com. It actually sounds more like a travel site or something.
While the text may seem damning, it's legitimate criticism and it's hardly bashing the game. If you check the score he gives it's a 3.5, out of 4. I'd say the reviewer really liked the game, but wishes it had more challenging puzzles. Sounds fair to me.
I didn't even see the 3.5 before you mentioned it. Their system isn't very good. The rating blends into the text. But where do you get the out of 4 part? I don't see anything on their site that says they give up to 4. What kind of rating system is that though if they do? Not the best way to rate games.
On their site they also have a Mass Effect review, they gave that a 4. While it might be out of 5 stars, I doubt they think Mass Effect is anything less than a stellar game based on their final paragraph: "Nitpicking? Well, you gotta pick something, and with Mass Effect there's only nits to pick; if a solid-but-unremarkable shooter (call it three stars, in itself) is the delivery vector for a role-playing experience this deep, this engrossing, then I'll put up with it - I've been satisfied with far, far worse combat systems in my long years of RPG gaming. Bottom line, Mass Effect is a triumph of cinematic game-making - and it's just the beginning of a planned epic. Twenty years wasn't too long to wait." So I assumed (perhaps incorrectly, but I haven't found much evidence to the contrary) that their scale goes from 1-4. Hence, 3.5 outta 4.
What a lame rating system. 1 point could be worth up to 25% the grade. Besides, their worth goes as low as it can get. I had never heard of Canada before ;)
Hey you know that game Mass Effect? The game that is better than any game on the PS3? Made in Canada. ---- Also, just in case my opinion doesn't do it for you statistically, Mass Effect is better than anything on the PS3 http://www.gamerankings.com... ----- ignorant, American, Sony fanb!tch
Why would you call him a ignorant, American, Sony fanb!tch when he has a gamer tag? Anyway it does not make you any less of a fanboy if you troll.
Canada rules, and I'm not even from there, but I been there once. Great bud, great times. YOU GO CANUCKS
lol this review was whack.
