It's time to make new friends with old men and their mystical daggers.
very nice video, still looks like Tomb raider.
i hope xbots come up with a new line for bashing uncharted soon.. that male tomb raider stab is so 2007. tomb raider has no funny lines unlike uncharted and indiana jones btw, drake's humor FTW
OMG !? The voice acting in that was better than a TON of movies that i've LIKED. That was so weird to experience, like... like i want to go buy that movie and see what it's all about, but it's a game. So not only do i get to see/hear/witness a great-looking story I also get to interact with it? Cimematic, what a perfect word, my girl my actually enjoy watching me play this game LMAO! And after all that, I've already played the multi-player beta and know i like the gameplay. Now im kinda... sad, i wish it were out now :(
Can't wait til the sh!t hits the fan and 'the power of the stone is unlocked'. You all know its gonna happen, I'm sure there is a surprise in store for us when it does. Kinda like how you have to fight the mutants towards the end of Uncharted 1.
Screw you. Tomb Raider my ass. Tomb Raider doesn't hold a candle to this series.
Like tombraider? Hey! Now that you mention it, I have to agree. Although, UC does have slightly updated graphics and a 'cartoonish' rendering style to it, which TR didn't have.
GOTY...... that is all
This game looks UNBELIEVEABLE! I mean that cinema on my 52 inch tv looked the closest to real life of any video game i have ever seen and we all know the gameplay and story will be gold ^^^agree GOTY
yeah the video is really nice but your exagerating with the real life stuff common now.
The facial expressions are amazing, and the story telling and voice acting are top notch. I can't wait for this game! Edit: He said it is the closest to real life a game has come, not that it looks like real life.
and it's pretty clear your a blind xbox fanboy. why not stay in the 360 threads? your account is a little new to be trolling isn't it? on topic - i felt like KZ2 would hold the graphics crown till GOW3......i was wrong. UC2 graphics (and in particular; the movements and facial expressions of the characters) is unbelieveable. wow!
This game is Pure Epicness trapped in a plastic Bluay disc. The multiplayer beta was additively fun and looks to have a great story just like the first game.
I just watched it on Spike HD. I have a 42" 1080p Samsung and it truly did look amazing but there really needs to be another solution for aliasing in PS3 games. The jaggies were terribly distracting. Even during the cinematic there were tons of jaggies. I'm glad Naugthy Dog is one of the few developers who do not use a ton of blur to compensate for aliasing but the PS3 does need another solution.
It's still early, but I think this will end up being my personal GOTY. The multiplayer was crazy fun, and everything I've seen from the singleplayer leaves my jaw on the floor.
My goodness Naughty Dog, you've outdone yourself again. Eases the pain in me desperately missing for a PS3 Jak Game :). Definitely one of the GOTY candidates and maybe winner.
how am i trolling? I said that the game looks nice and that no it doesnt look like real life.
" I saw this tonight on Spike TV on Gametrailers and it looked amazing but there definitely needs to be another solution to deal with aliasing in PS3 games. The jaggies were terribly distracting, even during the cinematic. Especially when you have a tv as large is mine ( . . . 42 1080p Samsung), it's even more prominent. " Why not just copy and paste ;)
The Game looks better then any CGI movie I've ever seen. The game is so good in every aspect, it's hard to believe it even exists. xD Day 1 buy.
LOL. You know, a minute or two after I posted that comment on Gametrailers, I came to N4G and there was a topic on the front page. I didn't have to copy and paste. I pretty much had that thought from the moment I started watching the cinematic.
@stan lee...ya says the guy with no ps3 i didn't notice anything but hey its not like i look for defects i just enjoy the games or whatever i'm watching ya know lol sorry if that sounded d1ckish
if you 360 owners need any proof of the graphical superiority of the PS3 over the 360, here is it! Uncharted 2 is the ultimate show piece for the PS3.
GOTY truly magnificent
No need to be a douche. Anyone who watched Gametrailers and claim they didn't see jaggies, have their fanboy goggles on. And I DO have a PS3.
thanks dude...i even said i wasn't trying to sound like a d!ck but thanks for acting like that but seriously i've gone back over it and i see nothing EDIT: Ya nice stealth edit there
Lol. Your tv broken or something?
Looks good not as good as people are making it out to be. I'd say it looks pretty in a cartoon-ish way.
even the first one was GOTY... i just got myself a Sony Bravia... and man! uncharted looks really amazing! something i didn't see while playing on my SD tv. i now know why everyone was saying Uncharted is the best looking game. lol. q: i'm so looking forward to it. EDIT: @whydis... i feel pity for you. lol. EDIT: @below:. awww...... like i said, i pity you! and i'm sure so does majority of the people here...
I pity you because of your over-exaggeration. Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake and splinter Cell compete with this game with no problem what so ever with ingame cutscenes in all of them just as impressive but with a more mature artstyles.
UC 2 won all the best graphical awards in E3, so apparently experts don't agree with Why dis. The 360 games he mentions don't even come close.
Aren't you the one who complains about PS3 fans in a 360 article? Lol. Take your delusion elsewhere. Mass Effect 2 or SC don't hold a candle to Uncharted 2. Mass Effect has bland textures up close and poor facial animations. SC has stiff animations, and bland graphics. None of them won best graphics awards over Uncharted.
Everything looks good except the hair construction is still STATIC. I only see her bangs moving while the rest of her hair stay frozen (looks at pony tail). Maybe ND is saving an all out visual enhancement for Uncharted 3.
it's won says otherwise. This is an amazing looking game hands down. You call it cartoony, I call it vibrant. Mass Effect, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell, all great looking games. But nothing has wowed me the way Uncharted 2 has been able too, it just looks better every time I see it.
we give you 360 fans killzone 2 and you say "meh too bland, not enough colors" we give you uncharted 2 with very rich and vibrant colors and you say "meh, cartoonish" just can't win with you (delusional) people
The first Uncharted to this day is only equaled or bested by one game: Killzone 2. Mass Effect and Splinter Cell Double Agent weren't even close in the graphics department. And while their sequels have certainly seen some improvements, Uncharted 2 looks to be an even bigger jump over its predecessor and is again going to stand head and shoulders above ME2 and Splinter Cell Conviction. Uncharted 2 looks better than any upcoming game I have seen. But the graphics are just the icing on the cake. The wonderful narrative, pacing and gameplay are the main elements that make the game truly special. I also love the fact that the single player story mode isn't broken up by load screens, it is seemless from beginning to end. Uncharted 2's overall package of gameplay, narrative and graphical presentation is simply unrivaled.
You say that? Well I say anyone who watched it and claim that they DO see jaggies, have their fanboy goggles on.
it is like watching a real cinematic. Even MGS's body movements weren't close to this..... I think it's this naturalness that really adds to the cinematic feel of the game.
Seriously, dude. Shut up. What jaggies? I did not see one because I was so sucked into the awesome cinematic using the best character models Ive ever seen in a videogame to date. Period. Distracting you some jaggies? Sh**, get that tinfoil hat off pronto. And I stand by the fact that there were no noticeable jaggies anywhere in that cutscene. Its a videogame, of course its made out of polygons, what game has NO jaggies at all? Uncharted 2 just happens to have the best graphics in a videogame console to date, thats all (said so by critics during E3 09 awards, not by myself).
You're such a troll, you always pop up to nit pick any PS3 game you can. You see one of the greatest looking video games of all time and all you can talk about is your preoccupation with the jaggies you've found on what is an amazing looking game even though it's still not finished, and it was probably in standard def since it was spike, but regardless, if you can't appreciate a game that looks that good just because you're such a fanboy than you should quit playing video games altogether. Your sauce is weak fanboy.
Dude you're comments are actually laughable, calling Uncharted cartoonish... Clearly not. Ratchet & Clank, cartoonish, Uncharted clearly is not, see the difference? Or is your vision compromised with your lips so firmly pressed against Microsoft's @ss? Man, no wonder they keep racking up cash, people like you who ignore and deny quality just to show their loyalty to a company that's known for it's sub par product standards, and gives their customers the bare minimum they have to.
Was it actually IN-GAME? And @ StanLee: Your comment makes no sense! It's impossible to see any aliasing issues through Gametrailers.com-quality videos because their resolution generates a lot jaggies already! So are you mocking Gametrailers or TRYING to mock the game?
When the video stopped, I was like "Noooooooo!!!! >:0 I desire Mooooooooore!!! EDIT: And to think, Naught Dog will be sharing the source code soon after release, just like they are doing with the first Uncharted. I hope the other devs pick up some useful tips. The potential for some truly stellar games from more studios is absolutely mind-blowing!
For even more Uncharted 2 coverage.
Stan Lee has a crap ass monitor with a crap ass cpu and a crap ass vid card. Need I say more? Ps: why yes I can, he also has crap ass eyes which he uses to view the footage through his crap ass lens in his crap ass glasses.
You think Mass Effect 2 competes with this? I mean mass effect 2 looks great for an RPG but there is nothing and I mean nothing about the graphics that beats Uncharted 2. Your comment seems unwarranted and fanboyish. How about you buy all 3 systems so we dont have to listen to your gibberish anymore? Oh and I didnt notice one jaggie in the cutscenes, that was kinda trollish. Well, i guess this is N4G
To all the fangirls with their panties in a bunch over my comments, I did not watch the trailer on Gametrailers.com. I watched the trailer on GametrailersTV on Spike TV HD, channel 741 on Cablevision in New York City where I live on a 42" 1080p Samsung television and yes, there IS aliasing. There is no question that the game looks phenomenal but just like with the first, aliasing is a distraction. This has nothing to do with the game or the developers, it's most PS3 games. Textures look wonderful, but anti aliasing is almost nonexistent. This is incredibly noticeable in games like Fallout 3, as well as PS3 exclusive games like MGS4 and MLB09. Anti aliasing is almost nonexistent. Get you heads out your asses. It's a valid criticism but I forgot, anything but total adulation for a PS3 exclusive is sacrilege to the little emotard PS3 fancrowd.
Do not f*ck with Sony/Naughty Dog. That's all I have to say. The dialogue between the characters, the lighting, the cutscene itself is AMAZING. This game is gonna be off the damn hook and I cannot wait for it. Give me a damn limited edition and I'll buy it in a heartbeat. And you 360 fanboys out there...no need to be jealous. Maybe you should ask Microsoft to bring out some 1st party games that look as amazing as this instead of making 3rd party games go multiplatform. That's what they've been doing this entire generation and I'm not even impressed. Uncharted 2 has potential to be GOTY 2009. Believe that.
I'm watching it right now, I don't see any jaggies. The only way you're going to see jaggies is if you're right next to your TV. Do you play your games whilst sitting 5 inches away from your screen? Why dis - No they don't. They don't even look as good as Killzone 2 which came out months ago, and you think they look better Uncharted 2? Made by the guys who made the PS3's development tools!!?! Seriously you are beyond stupid, I think you're in George W. Bush territory stupid. Alan Wake, Splinter Cell look amazing in their own right, but please don't compare them to Uncharted 2. First of all the genres are completely different, the art styles are completely different, and the graphics are miles better in Uncharted 2. You are NOT a gamer if you don't own a PS3 when this game comes out. You're a fanboy, simple as that.
Ah pro video indeed, cant wait to get this game. You know, comments like this are what make me come to n4g "I pity you because of your over-exaggeration. Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake and splinter Cell compete with this game with no problem what so ever with ingame cutscenes in all of them just as impressive but with a more mature artstyles." Seeing 360 kids be really delusional and they even start believing the lies they say Lol, its rlly sad. Why this go play ur forza with no night, weather, rally, nascar and its on 2 disk ROFL, as for stand lee his just hurt, he loves hes 360 too much to see this be real, like when GT5's footage was rendered huh lol
"You are NOT a gamer if you don't own a PS3 when this game comes out. You're a fanboy, simple as that. " qft
This is the most advanced game on consoles to date. This is the future of gaming, from graphics, lighting, AI, voice acting, scripting, and gameplay. The culmination of so many other games that have made it possible to make this game are not forgotten and neither will Uncharted 2 as new games are made based on the successes Naughty Dog has made with this generation of consoles.
Looks really good. Faces, lighting and acting are all top notch. The phantom 'jaggies' that seemed to plague and ruin some posters life in here did little to hamper my enjoyment even viewing on a screen 3 times the size of the little Samsung...
wow, they really updated the character models from the last game. looks __________________ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (fill in the blank) :)
Game looks good but the gameplay im worried about.
U2 might actually give MGS4 a run for its money for best game this gen. I never thought this would be possible but if you guys haven't notice. U2 is set to have detail cutsceens like MGS4. Cutscenes that goes beyond what other games have in detailing and fleshing out the character and story unlike any other games out there. The facial expressions alone and animation looks to best MGS4. The great thing about U2 though is that alot more people can follow it unlike MGS as i think the plot in U2 will not be anywhere near as complex as MGS4. A good old fashion Action adventure blockbuster story that is a bit more character driven than the first Uncharted. This game have always been my GOTY09
The first comment got 48 replies. Anyways I agree, I played the beta and I just finished playing final fantasy X on my PS2 and I think I was close to blindness...
I just download with my Ps3 and on a big HDTV it looks so good http://www.gametrailers.com...
God..I pre-ordered this today. It just looks so damn good. Im loving that they're balancing the action with more puzzles and adventure gameplay this time. GOTY 2009. Edit: The Last Guardian and GT5 are on par though.
but we haven't seen enough of those games just yet. hopefully at TGS.
Well at least for me anyway. Do not know about other people.
GOTY 2009 comes down to four games (imo): Uncharted 2 MW2 Bioshock 2 (if it turns out as good as the first) AC 2 Uncharted 2 just seems the most promising at this point.
for me uncharted 2 and MW2 are the top contenders AC might it just depends on if they did a few things different from the last game
1. uncharted 2 2. uncharted 2 3. uncharted 2 or 4. uncharted 2
is it....all of the above?
he wins a bubble.
bubbles for everyone then!
@ swiftshot: I think all of the games you stated are great, but you forgot to say Killzone 2, now I know you or others may have not liked it, but it still deserves a mention, also I think Bioshock 2 will be as amazing as the first one, and also, this may seem crazy, but Batman: AA seems to be very well done, it might deserve to be a contender
Action GOTY Uncharted 2 for 2009. Action GOTY God of War 3 for 2010. Racer of the year GT5. Shooter of the year.. well there're lots of competition for that since the market is SATURATED with FPS... RPG of the year.. WE NEED MORE (great) RPGS. (or pick a title from ds/psp)
Poor bots don't have a single game like this. Only Qeers and Gaylo. Lawl
