Another AAA title in the making, every year just gets better and better for us PS3 owners

criticalzero5620d ago

Just reading these dam articles makes me sick!!! I just can't wait...I'm playing Drakes Fortune for the third time now

criticalzero5620d ago

Even though Drakes Fortune is my Fav PS3 game to date...I still thought the platforming and puzzle solving could have been better....I love the shooting..just the puzzles seemed to easy and the platforming seemed too automatic...If they have that ironed out for the sequel, there is no doubt it might just end up being one off my all time fav games period...

...im glad developers are finally getting the hang of development for the PS3. Naughty dog never had a problem really, but its nice that now PS3 exclusives should start appearing more frequently and multi plat games are no longer ports. 2009 looks like it could be a fantastic year for the PS3 if everything goes right for Sony. Price drop with all these great exclusive games in '09 as well as heavy hitters like Bioshock 2 now multiplat and games being developed on PS3 seperately and no longer ported across. Blu ray sales getting stronger. PS3 sales should increase drastically. I think the price cut will be the fundamental part though that needs to be done, once they do that the games will sell alot better. My only worry is Home, something needs to be done, it needs REGULAR updating with new spaces to keep things fresh. At the moment i feel its gotten stale and pretty boring. If all these things happen 2009, as much as i hate people saying it, could be, 'the year of the PS3'. BUT, nothing is certain this generation, best just to wait till it happens than speculate and then be disappointed. I do however feel Microsoft will have a few surprise heavy hitters that no really expected for '09. Anyway sorry for the rant.

Currently playing Drakes Fortune on crushing, next will be to replay Among Thieves, but I'm sure it still holds up today.

Recently re-platinumed 1-3. Uncharted 2 aged better than I even expected. I enjoyed it more now than I did a decade ago. It’s more polished than 1, tighter than 3 and Yemen in 3 was gorgeous. Shambhala out-prettied Ubar though. 60fps w higher res’ made for a damn good rerun.

Abnor_Mal1481d ago

Question: When you say Uncharted2 aged better than expected, are you talking about the original PS3 game or the remastered collection on PS4. I ask because I think that a remastered version of the game would look and play better than the original.

I doubt that the original ran at 60 frames, how many years old is the remastered collection anyway.

I need to replay the original trilogy along with the collection, not a fan of the collection trophy of beating levels in a set time and don't think the originals required that for platinum.

@abnor_mal
It’s true that the remasters have upped the resolution and given it 60fps, but the base game is the same. The art design and base textures/physics/ animations are the same yet still look contemporary. More-so than UC1 which isn’t as tight, or UC3 in some cases which I found a bit clunky in close quarters.

UC2 level design was a great evolution in bringing the verticality from the jungle into rural/urban settings while maintaining smooth animation transitions. Drake still moves better than the ginger in Star Wars Jedi. Outdoor areas are better lit.

UC2 also has more action and better pacing imo, which helps when replaying a game 10 years later. Kept me engaged.

You don’t need to time trial for platinum. They stuck the speedrun trophies in a seperate extended dlc category so have no fear.

I thought the originals were good, but not great. I understand that puts me in the minority here. That said, Uncharted 4 was freaking fantastic.

Profchaos1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

Yeah I understand the hate for 4 prior to playing it I was firmly against it and felt like 3 wrapped things up already but now after playing it I think it was the best in the franchise.

Now I look back at two and I feel like I'm playing an on the rails shooter everything is so tightly scripted including the infamous train scene you simply can't make a mistake

Rimeskeem1481d ago

I think Uncharted 2 is a lot like AC2. Both games took the idea and basically improved it in every single way.

Movefasta19931481d ago

Uc2, AC2,Halo2, Soul calibur 2, Killzone 2, Infamous 2 , Dishonored 2 and a few more. The only negative thing I have against uc2, and imo it annoyed me,are the blue apes, uncharted 1 handled the super natural far better.

The entire final chapter of The Lost Legacy is the best setpiece in the series and it wasn't even mentioned.
