TheParanoidGamer Review: Uncharted 3

TheParanoidGamer writes: "To say that there was a significant amount of hype going into Uncharted 3 would be an understatement. In Uncharted 2, Naughty Dog crafted arguably one of the greatest titles of the modern era. Could Uncharted 3 once again raise the bar for the action/adventure genre? The answer isn’t exactly so black and white."

Well it topped the first one for me and that was my favorite of the previous 2. Glad I got to experience this fantastic series.

I can see how some people don't like that UC3 is more linear based but I love the pacing and story which is the best of the series in my opinion. This game was about the BROS and Sully and Drake's connection in it was the strongest of the series. Also the set pieces are the best, the visuals are the best, everything is so tweaked. And I got to say the ending moments trump UC2 10 to 1 and the set up for another game is (although not a cute as UC2) more exciting with UC3.

Side note: I do hope they release another Vita title to explain some of the events that happen in UC3. The stuff between Elena and I personally want to get to know Charlie more.

I prefered Uncharted 2. Much better game. However this time around Batman Arkham City showed up..seriously UC3 has nothing on Batman AC. AC is up there with UC2.Some even say surpassed it in greatness. UC3 fighting system was poor mans Batman AA yet alone Arkham City...

Uncharted 3 is better than Arkham City.

One bubble fanboys, gotta love em! I'll bet you're getting your multiple other accounts ready to troll too.

Fyi, Uncharted 3 has most nominations for the AIS awards. :D

Or maybe he just has the personal preference of one game to another like ohhh...I dont know whats that called again?


I guess because I prefer Arkham City Im a troll aswell?

Ironic how he is dubbed a fanboy.

Well people like you usually bubble down users when they dont grace The game. (Reason why i have 3 buubles) I for one didnt enjoy it and prefer among thieves over it. and as for the awards nominations it got is great and i congrat ND but lets see if they'll be able to win most of them.

@Zha1tan - If you can't see why he is a fanboy because of how he worded it then I don't know what to say. How you even have the audacity to claim I called him a fanboy because I have a different opinion on the matter is so dumbfounding that it's clear having a deep discussion with you would be moot.

Not sure how Batman got into this, but I guess I'll bite.

My opinion on Arkham City: a lot of backtracking over the same areas. You could see the whole map where you'd spend the next 8 hours in the first 2 minutes of free roam gliding. Everything felt compressed compared to the Gotham in DCUO. Went a bit overboard with the Riddler puzzles too.

Combat had the same exploits from the first game (the god mode leapfrog over enemies to keep combos going). Still too much time spent in X-ray vision looking at enemies' skeletons through walls. Pretty game but plays more like a Predator sim at times than Batman. Imagine if the Dark Knight movie had Batman looking through the sonar vision at the end of the movie the whole time.

UC3 isn't a fist fight brawler like Batman. Makes no sense to compare the two since Uncharted's a platform cover-shooter. It'd be like calling Batman a weak shooter compared to Uncharted. No one does that. Melee was just the icing on the cake. Better than the typical R3 gun butt or knife swipe.

To each their own I guess.

People of this earth, please do not forget that your preference is subjective. Everyone has their own particular taste :)

UC2> Arkham Asylum, I liked AA but I had AC2 over it as well

But I thought that Batman had the edge on Uncharted this year

as I thought UC2's setting in tibet was better than the middle east however the Chateau level and sand level were incredible
