Both games have the power to break their own structure with the allure, or distraction, of their visuals alone. In fact, arguably, Uncharted is the best looking next-gen game (full stop).
I dont think so they play very similiar but the impact gears had on gaming was way way bigger.
no one thought the 360 was capable of handling a 10 year old unreal engine. Who woulda thunk that the 360 could run a pc game at non hd resolutions, terrible sound.. and 3 characters max on the screen.
Comparing Uncharted to Gears of War is an understatement. And by that, I mean Gears still looks amazing for a game released 2? years ago. However, Uncharted has pushed graphics on consoles to a whole new as we know it. Am more anxious to see how much Epic will push the 360 with Gears 2.
Yet you guys get all excited over UT3?
Why compare a AAA title to a None AAA title. The shooting mechanics of GOW are solid. Everythign feels like it should. However, I hate/ loathed the shooting elements of Uncharted. They are as generic as can be. The wall crawl on Uncharted is also bad. I hated the story telling in GOW.
Are you kidding me, GOW is on a whole different level, do you have any idea how many copies of Gears sold in just the first week!!! LOL uncharted has nothing in common with gears but the things it copied from Gears, Uncharted has bright pretty colors, but the actual graphics are not that great, the people look like they are made of paper, the game looks like a popup book LOL.
if you have to tell me why it is, it isnt. And it didnt sell nearly as well
Gears was very rigid and scripted I felt at times it moved by itself the way you ran and the way you moved was held back by the Graphics and the limited environment.The boss encounters weren't so exciting! But it was pretty nice looking.But the engine is aging very poorly against PS3 console engines that will emerge as supirior!As Multi core takes over every aspect of gaming ,like,AI, physics, multiplayer, etc. and effects and BLuray shows its capacity benefits.. So RIP PC engines ..Say hello to PS3 cell engines..lol is there such a thing.
Uncharted is just more exciting and interesting.
listen here you multitude of dipsh1ts which have destroyed this once cool site, NOTHING.....I repeat NOTHING the ps3 has or ever will have,can or will touch the Gears franchise...........period. Look at the sales! And as far as the game goes.........it's graphics,gameplay,live play,characters,etc,etc,are just amazing. Sony=Losers........period. If you don't realize it,now you should. Enjoy your N4G bubbles and anti MS bs that's spread here daily.......... I know it amuses the sh1t out of me. PS....... The greatest will be when Gears 2 is released.............oh...... to see the pathetic look on each of your Sony turd faces. You guys DREEEAAAAM you could get this one. METAL GEAR WHAT and who cares when you got Gears. Suck it easy Iceholes, tom
Both are 3rd person shooters, both have a great cover system, both have good graphics, both came out in the 1st year of their console to show what the console can do. IMO Uncharted looks better and the AI is better, but overall the games are very similar in gameplay and effect it had on their respective system.
Gears was a better game but Naughty dog aimed at making a single player game and they really nailed it. I don't see how u can compare an fps to a third person adventure game.
Gears of War is a fps? I could've sworn it had a 3rd person/over the shoulder view just like Uncharted does, I guess I'm thinking of a different game though...
Gears was great but kinda got a little old after awhile for me. Uncharted is awesome and graphics are incredible!
Gears has awesome online multiplayer and even online coop!?!? How the hel can Uncharted be more exciting with longer legs, you play it once then your done, yet you are telling me that you got bored with GOW and not Uncharted? You are brainwashed.
Both Uncharted and Gears of War are excellent, both titles are so good that if you asked me which one was better I would have a hard time deciding.
Both games are amazing. Gears is still my favorite 360 game (beating out bioshock by a hair) and uncharted is by far my favorite ps3 game, but I'd have to give the edge to gears if I had to choose. The atmosphere and story were much better imo
Im saying GOW is another run, duck and shoot game to me. I am gettin a little tird of those kind of games since the market is just swarmed with these games. I like something a little more unique, which uncharted was. From its graphics to its gameplay, just simply amazing. It seems like you are the one that is brainwashed considering you are just playing the same game over and over again like alot of society. When someone comes up with a new idea, you should wanna give it a chance. Dont just buy into hype or play a game just because everyone else is supposed to be playing it. That my friend would make you another robot clone.
Gears of War had more replay value but the online got boring after awhile. --edit-- Unreal Tournament 3 > Gears of War
Epic wanted you to play ranked games without your friends, to get the achievements you had to play ranked games, that is boring not playing with your friends as a team game and to play as many matches as it would take to get 10,000 kills for the Serious achievement is ridiculously boring. It was fun until they updated it by taking out the host name, then it became to much of a chore to find your party and my friends as I got bored and went to other games. The campaign was awesome and can't wait for Gears 2, just hope they do something with the multi-player or it will just be a rental.
I would say the gameplay is better on Gears but the graphics on Uncharted just suck you in, and makes the gamplay look better than playing Gears...
Uncharted is on it's own level of greatness no console game can compare to. Graphics, story, weapons, physics, reality, etc. = awesome. I also like it because it seems more realistic like in every other shooter it seems like you can carry thousands of weapons when in Uncharted you can only carry two at a time. ex.) Pistol Assault Rifle Grenades That's what you call realism but you have to also conserve your ammo and once you ran out who have to fight an enemy fist to fist style kill him and take his weapon that seems cooler to me. Gears of War is pretty fun even though I don't own a 360 I did play the demo of it in an arcade on a 360 and it looked pretty good. I still think Uncharted is better in my opinion.
I dont know about you but, Im getting tired of the AK47 in Uncharted. The chainsaw is still fun to this day on Gears. Weapons are definately better for gears.
Both showed the systems off graphically to great affect but gears had a bigger impact. Quite different games but they both have the fact that they are great showcases in common. Err...above there never was a demo for gears released?
Both games have their pros and cons but are different types of games and can't really be compared to each other. This article is just pure flamebait.
if you actually look at what people are sayin you would see that people are puttin their opinions across without slaggin each console or game off. i wish all debates and people puttin their opinions across like this all the time.
i spoke to soon. the fanboys have arrived
I don't blame you =) You had a point though.
I'm not gonna argue about which gameplay is better as they are different games. but the are both similar in the fact that both games have that "wow" factor as far as graphics. and I think the were both the first REAL next gen looking games on their repective systems.
Both Great games. I liked gears better just becuase I like alien monster shooters more so than shooting people. If Naughty did a good apocalyptic Resi Evil type of game it would be the greatest game ever produced. I dont want to spoil anything for those who havent played Uncharted but the last 25% of the game is where I really started to get into it.
is that how delusional people are? Uncharted is the best looking console game out. edit: below White360. Seems like your ancestors made it out just fine. You are here.
Uncharted may be the best graphical console game out now, but not by a large margin as some fanboys would want you to believe.
NO online,6 to 7 hours long NOT WORTH $60 bucks. Can't break a million in sales. This is your champion? PLEASE..........wait until the 360 price drop this March the one Sony can't match because of Blue Gay DVD. The 360 will be over 20 million by June. ps. you and your ilk are douche bags.
uncharted is pretty cool...for people who aren't spanish. my ancestors were the ones who was in those ships that were raided.
That's the corniest thing I've heard all day.
uncharted is the best game out an im more spanish than u u dumb boylover u dont know sh#t bout games 360 is dead just like hd dvd
learn how to spell worstGamerAlive or at least use a spell check. and no Mr_Kuwabara The Mart and zuk make cornier comments ( no offence).
in every way, gears is an ok game uncharted is the best graphics 2 date and its a different engine cause the ps3 doesnt use unreal in every game like the 360 we have better engines the power of the cell oh yea the 360 is dead just like hd dvd
the creators of the game were insulting my people by carving spanish messages in uncharted. i have a friend finding all the messages scattered around through out the whole game. to me it's not really a big problem RE 4 was, i couldn't get the game to boot with out all my friends and families shouting at the top of there lungs. i finally got some peace and quiet after i moved out.
I think Uncharted is better looking, for the simple fact it takes place mostly in the day time, vs GOW you can hide many elements in shawdows. But Gears of war had the better game play. JMO
I like Uncharted more because you can JUMP!
Do the guys in GoW look like they can Jump? Christ they must inject steroids in everything they eat and weigh 500+ pounds >_<.
Both are awesome games, and both begin to show what their respective consoles are actually capable of. They each scream "this is what next gen gaming can be!" Thing is, Gears got the advertising, hype, and most importantly, the sales. The fact that Uncharted wasn't selling 1:1 with PS3's over Christmas is a bit of a crime, because I honestly believe it's one of the best games on either console, and has a broader appeal than Gears did.
Unwanted sucks. Let's not talk about sales.
Larry Croft? Jump,hang from cliff, shoot solve puzzle fight mutants escape from ship via Helo. Wow! what a great game! (not)
anyone who disagrees is ether A: a girl OR B: [email protected]
has the games that nobody wants to play! Look at the sales
Gears of War shook the gaming world. Uncharted didn't! Case closed.
meh...... forget uncharted and GoW... in fact night as well forget about the 360 while your at it.
Mighty_Douche That was Epic, I am still Surpised with Resistance 2, I mean, What The Hell!!!, Do the Guys At Insomniac work in Sweatshops????? they come out with a Game every Year OMFG, they are basically the "Cell Masters". They are the Best F$$king Developers EVER!!!!
I have both Gears of War and Uncharted Drake's Fortune and to me both games are great.
gears of war is an overall better game, at least to me based on the endless amounts of MP hours. However, if it weren't for MP, Uncharted would be the better game, i'm talking Graphics, story and single player campaign.
they're both very similar in terms of the cover system, and both are great looking, but if i had to choose i would say, gears because even for a pretty old game, its graphics still stand up witht he best of them, oh yeah and it has online
lol fvcking right uncharted didnt step to gears but was still a good game
well .. i played them both and Uncharted is 10x better than Gears .. to me! Uncharted is unbelievable .. Gears is just .. nice! PS3 FTW!!
I say this because Uncharted 2 is in development baby. The second you start Uncharted your heart skips a beat. I am DEAD SERIOUS. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is so classic it's insane. Ask my brother who loves both, which one is better. He will say Uncharted with the undisputed quickness. Keep dreaming.
lol ur so qay .........ur heart skips a beat
How many of you have actually played both? I have and I would rather play Gears. Uncharted was overhyped AI and gameplay by sony fanboys.
bla bla bla i hate sony bla bla bla seriously you shame a great movie by using it as your name and avatar.
I can say with confidence, both are equally amazing. I WILL get Gears 2 (if I don't die before *fearful look*), and I WILL get Uncharted 2 (again *fearful look*). Both are amazing graphics wise. Period. Sure some gamers have preferences, and some have never played the other, but speak as if they did for "console war" sake. But there is no denying both look gorgeous, and will only get better when the sequels are released. I prefer the AI in uncharted, Crushing was harder than Hardcore (Gears), IMHO, with the exception of General RAAM. But I loved the crazy action in Gears more. IF I had to choose only one, I seriously couldn't decide.... Thats why I'm glad I don't have to choose just one :P Love having both consoles. So speak as you must about the "other" game. But I am certain the sequels for each will be amazing. And I will enjoy both. Give me games or give me death.
it's put me off buying Uncharted, Gears was an awful game, I was looking forward to uncharted too but if it's similar I don't think I want to.
Uncharted can never be a Gears of War wannabe, Gears is just in a different league. You can say though as a new developer the Uncharted guys have done it great, but to compare with another title way above the others in competition is not because it won't be able to prove it's mettle against Gears.
*not starting a debate or anything* "You can say though as a new developer the Uncharted guys..." The developers of uncharted is not a new company. The Company (Naughty Dog) began around the late 1980's. Actually, I think they were in the gaming business before Epic. Not fully sure though, I think Epic was founded by Tim Sweeney in the early 90's. Naughty Dog has like 10 games out bro. :)
al lthe article was saying is that both games are showcases for some of the best graphics on each of the repsective system. also, one reason most lames hate on uncharted is bcuz there is no auto aim gears has it which makes average people pawners. play uncharted and see what i mean after playing a game without auto aim like uncharted actually helped me to become much better at any fps to date thanks uncharted.
Ya with u fanboys sales represent so much how a game is good or not. If u fanboys had played both games and that both of pros and cons and are as far the best each system has to offer. But ur funny as hell so continue plz.
Both Uncharted and Gears have quality presentation but most of their individual elements having been done before. GoW was way over-rated IMHO. The shortness of the SP combined with the small number of MP maps (although this has become the norm this gen) made for a short lasting game that felt superficial.
