Naughty Dog talks about how they approach The Last of Us Part 2 compared to Uncharted series.
Well no shit. The Last of Us isn’t as bombastic as Uncharted
Nice. Having companions is awesome.
Duh, a lot of us did play the first game.
“With Uncharted, a lot of it is bombast and spectacle, and the whole approach with The Last of Us as a franchise is to try to make it as intimate and small as possible. So that’s like a mini set piece of someone being on top of you, you’re feeling the desperation of your character and how you fight out of that. So, yeah, we want to make that as seamless as possible to the more systemic gameplay that’s all around those kind of more “set-piecey” moments.” That’s precisely why uncharted 4 was my least favorite in the franchise. I enjoyed lost legacy more than the last of us. Druckmann is a great writer but I don’t like his directed games as much. TLOU 2 gameplay looked good though, I was surprised.
What’s your opinion on The Last of Us?
Intimate and small lol.
I've not played lost legacy. Is it worth it?
It's very forgettable, if all you care about is gameplay then it should suffice. But the story was retarded, it's a good fix if you're done with all the uncharted games though.
Yes. It’s on sale all of the time just wait.
Skankin is being brutal but it is actually a very good game, I loved it and it also includes uncharted 4 MP.
Not IMO its a watered down version of Uncharted and the whole time I was playing it I was wishing Nathan was the protagonist and this is coming from a girl who loves playing girl characters.
Lost Legacy was brilliant, it is worth it
How dare you say UC4 was your least favourite, the graphics man the graphics....just kidding, I concur with you, UC4 has to be my least favourite also, didnt feel special still cant get over UC2, best in the series imo, as compared to TLOU, UC feels like hd tetris while the last of us is actually a game, it has good gameplay, nothing new but refined and works well, good gameplay mechanics, nothing new here too just done well and an absolutely AWESOME story thats the main reason I wanna play TLOU 2
“UC feels like hd tetris while the last of us is actually a game” Interesting choice of words, bud. What about UC4 did you not like?
Uncharted 4 was amazing and it wasn’t fro graphics alone. How dare people and critics like it? Get over it!
You enjoyed the lost legacy more than the last of us? Uncharted 4 was your least favorite? Huh? We must have played two very different games.
Nah we just have different opinions.
Lol. I’m surprised when I hear some gamers say Uncharted 4’s their least favorite out’ve the series. I respect their opinion, but it’s always shocking to me. But than again, Uncharted 3’s my least favorite in the series, that weak story among a few other things. But it’s what it is. Which Uncharted game is your favorite?
@Clayrules2012 Uncharted 3 could have been the best in the series but Marlowe was such a god awful villain. 4 was my favorite, best story, gameplay, character development, and boss fight. Rafe as a villain was just whatever but that sword battle was epic, miles better than Lazarovic.
Totally agree. Marlowe was an awful villain & the pacing in 3 was just bad. Yeah, Uncharted 4’s my favorite, with Uncharted 2 right behind it.
LOL. Alright, not the answer I was expecting, but okay. Thanks!
UC4 was a let down. Wasnt as light hearted and fun, the set peices were weak, extremely repetitive, no mystical elements, bad villain, forced in and terribly implemented brother and rope swing mechanic...
You get it. It was intimate and small. Sam was great in lost legacy though, same with Nadine.
Disagree! Raffe was a great villain and the setpieces were good and were more controllable. The rope mechanics was also great and there was a lot you could do with it. Sam got introduced just like Cutter and even Chloe: out of nowhere, and yet no complains. If anything these characters add to Nate’s adventures and don’t ruin anything. Some people act as if Sam changes anything when there was so little we knew about Drake’s beginnings before U4. I found ND fitted him well with enough backstory I didn’t miss mystical elements but pirate ghost was a missed opportunity.
"UC4 was a let down." http://www.metacritic.com/g... https://www.forbes.com/site... Uncharted 4 was a great game whether you like it or not.
I loved U4 with the exception of Nadine and the final boss battle but Amy Hennig spoke about the story of U4 she was working and it would have been awesome. Druckmann is not Amy's calibre and he is more concerned about pushing his agenda than the gameplay, proof is to look how similar TLOU2 gameplay looks to U4.
With the exception of the final boss battle? Are you kidding? That Rafe sword battle was miles better than any of the boss battles in the series.
@Skankinruby "That Rafe sword battle was miles better than any of the boss battles in the series" Really? Better than the Lezaravic battle? Ummmmmm... ok?
To me it was better than Lazarevic's fight but not because of the fight alone, which was epic, but Rafe and the parallels between him and Nate. Honestly Lazarevic while a good villain, but the last battle was pretty much and overpowered grunt. Nothing that special
Other than being made by the same company I don't see the point of comparing the two. But since it's brought up uncharted is a fun adventure but TLOU beats it on every level. Gameplay, storytelling, character development, everything is top notch. Also uncharted 2 is by far the most overrated in the series. It got its acclaim because of the drastic improvements made from the first one, but as a game on its own accord Uncharted 4 was definitely better.
You forgott to add: "In my opinion" Also, I completely disagree with everything you have written here.
Wrong on all counts.
I always felt it was bigger than Uncharted. You don't really explore the areas looking for things in Uncharted, but you do in TLOU.
Your names hilarious, but what in the world are you smoking bro. Exploration was one of uncharteds biggest elements.
On what planet? LMAO. Uncharted is about the story, the blockbuster cinematic gameplay, and graphics. Everybody knows the game is linear. Finding trinkets is clearly optional and poses no connection to the story. lol. You HAVE to scavenge in TLOU if you want to survive.
