Going back to this game made me like it a lot less
was way too full of pointessly long moments of just looking at things for way to long
that dessert chapter is just awful for it

AspiringProGenji1386d ago

The chase sections were unnecessary, but the desert chapter is still great to me. I still think it is a nice touch in nate’s story and plot of the game

the first time sure, after that it's just *wait, wait wait, fade to new area, wait, wait wait, repeat"
but definitely agree on the chases

Sully's kidnapping was pure filler that didn't add anything, and Marlow was too dumb to be a threat.

Still, the drug sequence in 3D was very memorable.

I completely agree about Sully's kidnap. I replayed it a few weeks ago, and even now (after around 6 playthroughs) that particular aspect of the plot didn't make sense.

The strangest part was when Nate returned to land after the boat sank, found Elena, but didn't ask her about Sully. In fact, that sequence seems to ignore the Sully kidnap section entirely. There's no mention (other than Nate's ramblings in the desert) until suddenly Sully appears during the convoy sequence.

Seems to me that the whole section on the boat may have originally been planned as a DLC mini-adventure (Sully has got himself into trouble with a group of people and needs Nate to rescue him). At the time of Uncharted 3's development, there was an awful lot of hatred towards "DLC that should have been in the base game", so I wonder whether Naughty Dog caved and shoe-horned it into the plot?

Resistance 3 is such a great game. One of my all time bests.

cooperdnizzle612d ago

Couldn’t agree more. Still love It as a shooter to this day.

Just something about that game. I really wish they would just do a remaster, don’t even need a remake just bring it up to todays out put, touch up a few things if any, and I am there to buy it day one.

Of course I would love a remake built from the ground up. As long as they treated it like Shadow of the Colossus, or close to those type of remake. Wouldn’t want it to get the RE treatment…. Just because the game is already paced so perfect and hits all the right beats that I wouldn’t touch that aspect.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has a lot to live up to as Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is an incredible and near-perfect game.

It's about retirement...oh wait

I cant even say what the point was its easily the worst story in the series. The online was a whole lot of fun though but overall doesn't come even close to 2

porkChop850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

It was a step back for sure. Personally, I thought even the MP was way better in U2. Solid game, glad I played it. I just think they didn't push as hard as they did with U2.


Yes both the online and story was better in 2 no doubt

Flewid638850d ago

The "young Drake" portion was pretty top notch, story-wise. But yeah, everything outside of that I felt was inferior.

DanielEndurance850d ago

Villains were all over the place in this… one second they wanted Drake dead, the next they needed him, then they want him dead again, then they coulda killed him, but poisoned his friend instead, then coulda shot him again, but had brunch with him, then needed him alive, then coulda mowed him down, but decided to kill him by fire and let him escape… Uncharted 2 was way better. 😅😅

slowgamer850d ago

=D Sounds crazy. I don't remember any of that. Played it on ps3 and I remember thinking that why was this game so bashed compared to second one. I liked it.

Chocoburger849d ago (Edited 849d ago )

Another thing that annoyed me about UC3 events was the agent Talbot teleporting around Turkey. It just felt off to me, and made no sense.

Also, for about one third of the game, you go on a wild goose chase to rescue Sully, who wasn't even there to be rescued, and you end up back where you started again. There was simply no pay off for all the events you go through, so it fell flat in that regard as if they couldn't figure out how to make the game longer, so they decided to side-track you to do something with no pay off, hoping you wouldn't notice due to all the incredible action set pieces they made.

Overall though, even with its flaws, I still enjoy the game.

TheEnigma313850d ago

This was actually my least favorite in the series. Didn't have that same impact that part 2 set.

Flewid638850d ago

Uncharted 2 is the pinnacle of the series (to me).

Granted, 4 had the best story in my opinion, but 2 was the overall best game.
