Never played GA so I can't comment on that. But from what I've played id say...

4. UC1
3. UC2
2. UC4
1. UC3

I know what you're thinking "UC3?!!😕", damn right. Game was incredible!

Get_A_Job_Foxtrot1278d ago

Uncharted 3 was the worst. Convoluted plot, senseless motives, short campaign, idiotic A.I.

For me these are my faves:
1-UC 4
2-UC 2
3-UC 1
4-UC 3

BiggerBoss1278d ago

I rank them 4, 3, 2, 1, best to worst. 3 had the best gameplay and set pieces until 4. The only thing wrong with 3 was the pacing

BlakHavoc1278d ago

Respectable, although I clearly disagree. For me 3 put the series over the top. 2 was amazing and when 3 managed to surpass it to me, that was enough to make it one of my favorite series ever!

Just finished UC4 about 10 mins ago. So I thought I'd give my rankings as well:

1 - UC2
2 - UC4*
3 - UC1
4 - UC3
5 - UGA

*Sometimes you have to watch a film a few times to really appreciate it, and I think with UC4 I am going to have to play it at least once more (gonna probably finished it 3 more times tbf) to give a proper judgement. Since people were calling it better than UC2, I had some high expectations going in. I've finished UC2 about 9 times as it has been my favourite game of all time. **SPOILERS** Honestly, I liked the supernatural twists of UC1 and UC2, so I thought they might go with the same with UC4. Alas, that wasn't the case. I was expecting some big revelation/curse/etc at the end which never happened. Also, the pacing of UC2 was just perfect.

But now that I've finished it, I don't have any expectations from the game, so I'll probably enjoy it a lot more the second time around. Who knows.. My ranking for the games might even change after that.

1. UC1
2. UC4-2
3. UC3

i like most U1 , probably because nostalgia , probably because it was fresh game and introducing everything and everyone, probably because PS3 these days was struggling for good exclusive games and it was like oasis in a desert ..idont know why but i liked it more...also i feel that Nate in U4 is at last a complete action-treasure hunter (with the added accessories rope and nail) and should have done this even from U1 or at least U2 ...Nate now feels alot more capable-well equipped and believable character for that kind of job and its shame that in the final game of the series made the protagonist right

nucky641278d ago

I couldn't agree more. UC1 was the best for me. not only was it fresh, I enjoyed the story more than the others and loved the locations.

Movefasta19931278d ago

uc3 had the worst villian,plot, pacing of any uncharted game by far.

BiggerBoss1278d ago

Marlowe wasn't a bad villain, just different.

wars19861278d ago

no way.... uc4 has the worse pacing out of all of them.

For me it goes
Uncharted 2
Uncharted 4 (So far)
Uncharted 1
Uncharted 3

I love all of them and would all be a 9 or higher in my book. Uncharted 4 has left me speechless at times. It's not "innovative" but it capitalizes on everything Uncharted has done right with a few new tricks up its sleeve. Uncharted 4 isn't as well paced as Uncharted 2, but the story telling is on par if not better than all of the previous games.

Naughty Dog struck gold once again.

deafdani1278d ago

Don't worry, I'm there with you. Uncharted 3 is my favorite so far. (I never played Golden Abyss, and I'm playing through Uncharted 4 right now, so I won't rank it until I've finished it).

3. U1
2. U2
1. U3

Hmmm...for me

Uncharted 2 - At the time it was fantastic, it was a huge leap from the first game, felt fresher, characters were even more developed and along with the single player the multiplayer was unique and different the constant gimmick driven online games which plague the market today

Uncharted - Fell in love with the series with this game and it really did amazing with basically just the Island/tropical setting, not to mention only the three main heroes Nate, Sully and Elena. It really goes with Sic Parvis Magna motto...greatness from small beginnings

Uncharted 4 - Fantastic and added a few new things to keep the last entry fresh like the sliding and rope gameplay. However like I said I didn't like how for the last ever Uncharted game they wasted time building up someone like Sam, if it wasn't the last game fair enough but he should have either been a villain or replaced with Chloe in a new story to fit her arrival. I would go with the villain idea since he would replace Rafe and Sams place would leave it open with either more Elena/Sully or Chloe/Cutter which again for the last game we should at least seen. Oh and the Marlowe bit from U3 with her not mentioning Sam still bugs me, not even fixed with this game to why she might of missed him out if she had all those files on Nate. Multiplayer is gimmick driven, lacking content at launch, free stuff coming or not I'm judging the base game. Who is to say I'm not going to move on by the time co-op comes in Fall.

Uncharted 3 - Great game but felt a little bit rushed at times and should have featured a lost treasure not another city. Yeah we have the brass vessel but the city is more of the focus within the game. Then like U2 the city is destroyed, it just felt a little samey story wise and the character development wasn't as spread out, Elena like always was cast aside. Plus I really think Marlowe should have been utilized more, maybe not focusing so much of Talbot but give her more of an active role that despite her age she's still capable. I would have liked to see her live in the end, I mean her organisation at the end was pretty much left empty so they could have always used her again someday.

BossBattle1278d ago

I agree with your ranking

Genuine-User1279d ago (Edited 1279d ago )

I would rank them as follows:

1. UC4 - best
2. UC2 - second best
3. A tie between UC1 and UC3 - good to great
4. UC PS Vita - good
