Hardcore Gamer: Now that the mainline Uncharted franchise has come to an end, it’s time to look back at Naughty Dog’s accomplishments in the best way we know how: an entirely subjective set of rankings.
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!
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
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
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!
1-UC 4 2-UC 2 3-UC 3 4-UC 1
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
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.
uc3 had the worst villian,plot, pacing of any uncharted game by far.
Marlowe wasn't a bad villain, just different.
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.
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 :3
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.
I agree with your ranking
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
1.UC2 2.UC4 3.UC Golden Abyss 4.UC3 5.UC1
I can't believe how many 'hardcore' uncharted fans skipped out on golden abyss. I thought GA was as good as U1, and 3>2. Just started U4 today
I completely agree
I don't understand the love for Golden Abyss. I platinumed it along with the PS3 games and the PS3 games again in the ps4 collection and I can safely say golden abyss is hands down the worst entry. It focuses too much on basic gimmicky rotate this thing, rub the screen, etc...it's all just gimmicky nonsense that felt shoehorned into the game to make use of all the vita's superfluous features that don't need to be used in every game. It also had by miles the worst writing in the entire series and some pretty poor level design along with no set pieces and that dumb pause during melee combat to let players swipe for a counter instead of triangle like the last 2 games because shoehorned features
I would love to play Golden Abyss, but I'm not buying a Vita just because of that game. Vita's library isn't appealing to me to justify the purchase.
4>2>3>1>GA. 2 and 3 are pretty much equal but the before and after storytelling in 2 gave it the edge for me. But 4 is unbelievable, miles ahead of all of them.
5) uncharted 4) uncharted golden abyss 3) uncharted 2 2) uncharted 3 1) uncharted 4 i can't understand, btw, why most people prefer the 2nd to the 3rd, they're both awesome... but uncharted 3 is a little better for some reason, the locations for example
I can understand that It's because the pacing and story were better in Uncharted 2 Uncharted 3 is better in graphics,gameplay,music,set-pi eces though.
5.) UC Golden Abyss 4.) UC1 3.) Uncharted 3 2.) Uncharted 2 1.) Uncharted 4
LOL 1 actually is my favorite for some reason.
From best to worst for me: 4>2>3>1 I enjoyed them all! And I don't think 3 is the worst either, I really liked the different environments from the ship graveyards to the desert. And I liked 4 more than 2 (ignoring the graphics advantage 4 has) the story just wowed me throughout, enjoyed TLOU mechanics that were introduced to make combat more solid and the environments...simply awesome especially Madagascar
1. Uncharted 2 2. Uncharted 4 3. Uncharted: Golden Abyss 4. Uncharted 3 5. Uncharted For those who haven't played Golden Abyss, the game is great. Sony Bend did a great job, and I'd love to see them do another Uncharted but with Chase as the main character.
4 - 2 - 3 - 1
I haven't played UC 4 yet! 1)Uncharted 2 - no game beats it for me, absolutely incredible and love it to this day. 2)Uncharted 1 3)Uncharted 3
I've never played Golden Abyss, so can't list it. 4) Uncharted 1, good game that hasn't aged well, but layed great foundations for the future games. 3) Uncharted 3, great game, but didn't really do anything new and had the weakest story and pacing of the franchise, but kinda made up for it by having the best set-pieces of the franchise. 2) Uncharted 2, a G.O.A.T of a game, that will probably never be topped for wow factor, had great story, pacing and amazing set-pieces, I really can't think of anything that was bad about it. 1) Uncharted 4, does basically everything better than Uncharted 2 (except pacing), so I'd put it above 2. It also had the best story of the series, best character moments and a fantastic ending. My only real complaint is !!!SPOILERS!!! no send off for Chloe, but that can be fixed with the SP DLC. All in all, Naughty Dog's best series for me, sad to see them move on, but happy that they didn't run it into the ground like pretty much every other dev would do.
Have played a 4..my ranking 1. UC2 (most epic and best MP of the series...the only one with all positive reviews of 75 and above on metacritic) 2. UNCHARTED 1 (the one that started it, best platforming action of the series) 3. UC4 ( best graphics but MP and script fell short for me....the only one with a negative review of below 5 on metacritic) 4. UC3 (IMO, have the best set pieces of the franchise but have the worst MP of the series) Overall a great series in gaming history with only one negative review for the 4 games combined. Well done Naughty Dog!!
That negative review was a troll one that wasn't serious. Though metacritic threw it in. But then why bother. Looking at your comments your clearly an Xbot fanboy that attempts to hide himself as a Sony fanboy. That's Cringy. That review was completely off topic but you brought it in topic just to have some degree of negativity towards sony
So was the 1/5 review for Halo 4 and the 95/100 review for The Order 1886. It is what it is as if we threw out that 40/10 UC4 review, then we might as well thew out all them reviews for other games we suspect were trolls reviews for every other game.
Wow, mentioning that UC4 is the only one with a 'negative' review is such an Xbox fanboy move it's silly... The reason people don't believe the stuff you say about Sony/PS is stuff like this, if you left this bit out it would've been a good post, now it's just a stealth troll post...
1- uc2 2- uc3 3- uc1 4- uc golden abyss 5- uc4
I haven't played UC4 yet so I'll just make the list without it. In order 1.UC2 2.UC3 3.UC1 4. UCGA However I enjoyed all of them.
Uncharted 2 > 3 > 1 Of the ones I played and beaten. Currently playing Uncharted 4 and it's amazing.
Best U2, wort U3.
1. U2 2. U3 3. U4 4. U1
that would be my order as well
Interesting list with good justifications. Mine will always be UC2, because I loved the sound design and the focus on ancient Eastern architecture. The "find the foothold" mechanic was in full force, but it was always about climbing something interesting - a falling train, a giant temple puzzle/statue, etc., while in UC4 it's usually "cliff, cliff, cliff, island-like rock thing, cliff." The Tibetan mountains portion with Tenzing was so well-paced, too.
4, 2, 3, 1
Wow - bunch of people ranking UC3 over UC2... I must have played a different game because UC3 was a HUGE step back from 2 imo
I wouldn't say I never Enjoyed any of them. All Fantastic imo. I haven't completed UC4 yet. But from the others it's probably uc2 uc1 uc3 I loved the original game.
I've just replayed the first 3 ( Remastered). I can't rate 4 as I'm on chapter 15 of 4( it will be up there . superior to the others in most ways so far). 4. Uncharted 1 3. Uncharted GA 2. Uncharted 2 1. Uncharted 3. 4 with either be 1 or 2 but my son puts 3 above it already. I don't right now. Having played them back to back last few weeks, 3 is definitely better than 2. 2 made more of impact because the leap from 1 was massive. 1 has aged badly.
Uncharted 4 was miles ahead of the other games. I don't know how anyone could think two was better. They are all great games but 4 in my opinion was leagues better. Especially on rainbow happy land mode. Sure uncharted 4 didn't have as big set pieces but that's fine they already used up most of the crazy ones for their last games. They only way they could step up the plain crash is if Nathan got onto a rocket.
1.UC4 2.UC2 3.UC 3 4.UC Golden Abyss 5.UC1
I've only played 1-4, but I can attest that they get better with every iteration. Uncharted 4 was fantastic and the best in the series without a doubt. If you say otherwise, you're blinded by nostalgia.
People are still overhyped about Uncharted 4 seeing as it just released. I bet in a month from now many peoples opinions will shift to the right order which is as follows Uncharted 2 Uncharted 4 Uncharted 3 Uncharted GA Uncharted 1
Am I the only one around here that really loved 3? 2 was great, but 3 really wowed me. Also, I felt like in Uncharted 2, the boss fights were annoying and 3 had some really trippy parts at the end and playing as Nate when he was a kid was a cool treat! In my opinion, it goes 4, 3, 2, 1.
Yeah, I'd agree.
Honestly, I don't know what order I would choose. They are all great. Still havnt picked up UC4. Shame on me.
Best to Worst. 1. UC2 2. UC4 3. UC3 4. UC1 5. UC:GA UC2 to me is still the best although i want to play through UC4 again to make a final judgement but as of right now, UC2 is still the best for me.
Probably i am the only one here who wouldn't rate neither of them. UC trilogy was great... UC4 was beautiful .. loved all 4..
1-UC2 and it's not even close 2-UC4 3-UC3 4-UC1
Best to worst UC1 UC2 UC4 UC: GA UC3 Uncharted card game Vita
