VentureBeat's Dean Takahashi weighs in on Uncharted: Golden Abyss on Sony's new PlayStation Vita.
"Developers won’t get good at making games at the Vita for a while" Reviewer is an ass, confirmed.
Indeed. It's one thing to judge the game itself, but it's another thing entirely to make an asinine comment while staring into the crystal ball. Comments like that just detract the audience from the review.
I don't think the author is wrong. It took a while for developers to get good at developing on the PS3, but now the PS3 has some of the best games this generation. I tried the Uncharted Demo on the PS VITA a couple nights ago at a friend's place, and while I was definitely pleased with the graphics, I know that they will get better as time goes on. The one thing that I hated about the Uncharted Demo was the touch screen controls. I felt that they were totally unnecessary. Personally I wish they had kept them out of the game. Also, Scoping in with the rear touch pad didn't feel right at all.
This is a perfect example of having webspace does NOT a critic make.
except this happens with every console ever. later games are always higher quality than games from early in the consoles life.
"...are always..." Mario 64 would like a word with you.
Agreed. It's been mentioned that Vita is easy to develop for. It has more to do with lack of creativity for Golden Abyss. It always takes about a year or so after a system launches for the good games to start coming out.
it's still a good score though...
Don't like a game made by the company I worship? You are an ass.
Uh, do you think the developers have reached their peak already with the launch titles? Is Uncharted 3 better than the original Uncharted?
ff9 and ff12 during the end of their respective console life were a visual marvel. This means that it would really take a while to optimize the vita. But gravity rush and golden abyss had me impressed.
Why do reviewers keep comparing this to Uncharted 2 or 3? Sony Bend took inspiration from the very first Uncharted, remember that game? The look & feel of Golden Abyss is very similar to Drakes Fortune. Before Naughty Dog mastered their craft they too had to start from the beginning. Wait until the 2 or 3rd Vita game than start comparing it to Uncharted 2 or 3. Golden Abyss is awesome! This reviewer has no clue i'm sorry.
wow... guys and this is "gaming journalism" a group of gaming critiques who are total douches
If someone gives a game a low score u guys bash the critiques. Its their opinion towards the game simple as that. That shouldn't stop you all from buying the game. I would get to see how it is cuz i love uncharted. Gamers really forgets what gamer really means, all we do now is go on metacritic look at the scores and see if it gets high or not. Shame
Why is it you are trying to defend the critics? We also have a right to disagree with or criticize the score. We can bash them if we want.If we think it doesn't deserve a low score so what? The reviewer doesn't need to be defended by you or anyone else.
I didnt defend them sir i just sumtin that is true. Cuz ppl like u, if d same site gives the game a good score. You are the 1st person to say, "great review day 1 buy for me" -___-. i just said its their opinion and can disagree with them if you like but dont bash them yo.
I am personally loving it. That's all I care about.
I understand the need to make comparisons as a metric of the quality of the game to others we know, but the writer pretty much forces the comparisons as to why a game on a completely new piece of hardware isn't equal to a game that's on a piece of hardware that has been out for half a century. He makes references to the 'competitor' making better games while the Vita works to make games that show off its power and coming to late to the party without, IMHO, realizing that the level of game being presented by Uncharted at the start of Vita's life is at least equal to that on its competition. My only issue with the Vita right now is quantity of games I'm interested in, which is my exact same issue with the older 3DS (and the fact I see absolutely no reason to switch from my DS to 3DS).
Just ignore this one, it's full of contradictions, or perhaps he's just a newbie: "To assist your aim, you can lower the sensitivity of the joystick. I had to do this because my thumb moved the crosshairs all over the screen. I couldn’t hit anything at first." but then "But there is almost no way to hit a moving enemy with any precision in Golden Abyss. That’s because your character turns too slowly when you are aiming"
Gaming journalism... /facepalm
Seems like a DAMN fine game for a launch title personally. The one thing holding me back is its 50 dollars with no co-op or mp. I really got into those on the 3rd one and me and my bro wouldve bought this 2mro if it had it in there. I love the sp but if its only 6 or so hours its not worth it. We need good online games but il be patient it took a while for the 3ds to get good online games also. Unit 13 looks like it will fill that void and i love socom so its a sure bet. Cant wait for resistance and hopefully ff type-0 comes to vita or psp on psn. Lots to look forward to.
its the same sony h8rs that BASHED uncharted series on the ps3.... and now I noticed these h8rs love to bash the newer uncharted and say it aint as gr8 as the ps3 versions... the worst part about these haters are they love to bring up the ipod and android OS like they are true portable gaming experience... sucks to be them cuz they are gonna be missing alot of gr8 games.
I stopped reading the second I saw PSV being compared to ipad. Uncharted: GA may not be perfect but it's far from flawed.
