Shadow Flare4828d ago

Breaking the laws of rating systems.
PlayStation 3: It only does everything

Game of the Decade CONFIRMED

prabx4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

Btw, is this the first review for UC2 ?

EDIT: Cheers Pope

Lifendz4828d ago

and I love it. They're going to get slammed by certain sites/podcasts, but this game has done nothing but impress everyone at every show, convention, or whatever.

Day one. I hope it does big for Naughty Dog.

saint_john_paul_ii4828d ago

apparently, yes. Sony Sent out the review codes last week.

LoVeRSaMa4828d ago

Wow, PSM are not bias even though it is playstation mag, i realised this when Kz2 only got a 9/10 but if they are giving U2 21/20 then O_o

Ju4828d ago

Ha ha. I'm curious if and how that goes into Metacritic. Might crash the site. 105/100% LOL.

kingOVsticks4828d ago

Uncharted just made them turn it up to "11". Man this game is going to be awesome

2Negative4828d ago

Sounds awesome. I'm looking forward to this game.

Side note: Be careful my virus protection says this site is a security threat.

SIX4828d ago

LOL! I was waiting for something like this to happen. Silly world.

SupaPlaya4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

Try to top that Uncharted 3 lol...

To Naughty Dog:
"You can do it!!"
"You can do it all gen long!!"

BulletToothtony4828d ago

Pros.. best game ever made and known to humanity..
the most fun we have EVER had playing a video game EVER!
Multiplayer is amazing.. best 3rd person shooter multiplayer to date..

Cons: It's on the ps3..

Being on the ps3 automatically deducts 2.2 points.. score if it was on the 360 or Wii 10.1

PS.. we hate you sony!!

SupaPlaya4828d ago

"Ha ha. I'm curious if and how that goes into Metacritic. Might crash the site. 105/100% LOL. "


You are giving them too much credit. They'll just drop this score lol...

D4RkNIKON4828d ago

21/20 is 105% awesome. I can't wait for the multiplayer demo that starts this week!

InfectedDK4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

LOL..! If I ran one of those crappy biased sites/mags agains Sony right now I would be crapping my pants right now! Feeeeelin' veery baad

TK4214828d ago

I guess that means they kinda liked the game.

raztad4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

21/20 == MONSTROUS.

That is UC2 for you.

Any gamer will get revoked that label if he/she doesnt play this game. It doesnt matter if you buy a PS3, or use your buddie's but nobody can miss out.

With resources, dedication and the right hardware every PS3 exclusive game is proving to be genre defining, UC2 is topping any expectation but behind come R&C:ACiT, GT5, MAG and later the Godly Kratos.

Nineball21124828d ago

@ kingOVsticks

Exactly! LOL... Reminds me of this video

BlackPrince 424828d ago

That might be jumping the gun a bit, Eurogamer did give the original Uncharted a 9. Sure they can't ever be forgiven for giving MGS4 an 8 but at least someone there knows a phenomenal game when they play one.

PrimordialSoupBase4828d ago

Sorry kids, there is no such thing as a 21/20.

Ju4828d ago

Wrong. Now there is. ;)

SuperStrokey11234828d ago

LOL you just dont get it do you primordial...

vhero4828d ago

@ ju don't worry the xboy fanboys will rate it down so no worrys..

NaViTo4828d ago

G.O.T.Y. for sure! This is gonna to be awesome, can't wait to get my hands on this game.

Oh wait, not only game of the year, GAME OF THE GENERATION!

TotalPS3Fanboy4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

then Eurogamer shock the whole world by giving it 12/10!
The uproar!!! The controversial!!!

Then Edge does it one better with 13/10!!!

kalebgray924828d ago

uncharted 2
god of war
world of warcraft
halo 1
gears 1
kingdom hearts

some may disagree with kingdom hearts but it might be my favorite game of all time.... just had to add it

LightofDarkness4828d ago

I'm playing the beta right now, and well may I just say... I'd let ND have me if they wanted. All of them. At once.

Yes, this game is 21/20. It is one of the finest gaming experiences of my life and I've only played it for an hour, as a beta version. No doubt this game trounces all other console games visually, it even comes close to Crysis level at times (despite the obvious differences of a vast open-world simulation and a focused, linear, small-scale environment). It boggles the mind how ND have squeezed this much beauty out of this machine. There's nothing that I can see that could possibly deny this it's rightful place as game of the year.

NeoBasch4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )


oh my god

I knew U2 was infectious, but this? Never saw this coming. I'm trying really hard not to over-hype the game, but I think I'm losing the battle.

Just 21/20. I expected more. lol /sarcasm

My favorite games of the decade thus far looks something like this:

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Final Fantasy X
Half-Life 2 (The Orange Box included)
Metroid Prime
Shadow of the Colossus
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 and 4
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Super Mario Galaxy
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

There might be a couple more, but this is all I remember. Soul Calibur came out in 1999. I'm assuming this decade means: 2000-2009. Otherwise, I would have included it.

EDIT: For now, could a mod just add a 10/10 for the score. It'd be awesome if you could add it as 21/20, but at least get it documented.

njr4828d ago

lol this reminds me of "Get a brain, morans!". I'm just speechless.

Multi-Console Owner4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

I'm seeing a trend with PS3 exclusives!

IGN said they wanted to give MGS4 an 11: "Is it possible to give a game an 11? If so, this would be the game that would merit that score."

And now Uncharted 2 gets a score higher than "perfection"! What exactly does 21/20 mean? Other-worldly? So good one could only dream of such an amazing game? So incredible that our tiny human minds can't comprehend it's awesomeness? I can't fvcking wait for this masterpiece!

At least 360 has... uh, ODST?

SaberEdge4828d ago

Wow, it's going to be an incredible game for sure. If it is as good as I think it will be I don't know how it wouldn't get game of the year. The first Uncharted was, in my opinion, the best game to come out that year and I think it was a little under-appreciated (even though it did receive a quite favorable critical reception). I really hope this one gets the full recognition that it will almost certainly deserve.

Sarcasm4828d ago

Cant wait for the 360 fans to say

"FAIL, it didn't get a 22/20. That's what you get for playing on the Lamestation!!! *cries in the corner*"

Microsoft Xbox 3604828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

U2 stepped onto uncharted territory. A territory beyond rating scales. GOTY confirmed.

ape0074828d ago

I want this game so bad

rareairtone4828d ago

Uncharted wins, not the freakin ps3. It's part of the winning party but don't forget Naughty Dog are the victors. I shoulda known fanboys would automatically say "PS3 wins."

THis had everything to do with the talent of Naughty Dog; the PS3 was just a vessel

Multi-Console Owner4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

Actually, this has everything to do with the PS3! If the PS3 didn't exist, ND would be working on the 360 which can't even run U2. U2 would look like Gears of War and would be 5 hours long due to the DVD9 space limitations. Without the PS3 U2 wouldn't even be close to as good as it is now. You make it sound as if the PS3 is just an empty box and ND filled it.

DaTruth4828d ago

5 time US Open champ Roger Federer goes down!!!! Please don't report this for being off topic!

cmrbe4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

U2 not only maxed out the PS3 but also the rating system. U2, it only does everything.

@rareairtone. Yes but without the PS3 hardware ND wouldn't have the resources to make U2. Its as much a victory for the PS3 as well as for ND.

Microsoft Xbox 3604828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

Too bad Multi you get no credit. Shadow Flare was the first to mention it.

EDIT: LOL you stealth edited your comment. What happened? Thought you was the first? HAHA

MEsoJD4828d ago

defies the natural laws of gaming.

rareairtone4828d ago

I'm not making the comment in context of the xbox 360 or other consoles. I know the 360 can't render this game. In this world of talented people, even if Sony didn't exist, there would still be a console on which Naughty Dog could develop Uncharted. Maybe it would be later than now if it wasn't for sony, or even sooner. However, given our timeline, it would be anachronistic and not very smart for anybody to have released a console of the ps3's power in like 2003.

Like I said, the PS3 takes part in the victory, but I wouldn't make it 50/50 or like some people are saying; the victory alternates between the 2 as 100%

theEnemy4828d ago

PlayStation 3™

Breaking the Rating System.

PrimordialSoupBase4828d ago

You can't fill a container to 105% capacity, the contents spill over the edge.

If it's 21 out of 20, then why not make 20 out of 20 worth more.

Please learn the basic principles of reality and come back to this discussion later.

GrandTheftZamboni4828d ago


"Please learn the basic principles of reality"

Reality has been maxed out: 105%. Behold the power of the Cell.

dreamcast4828d ago

Just because the container overflows doesn't mean there's any less of whatever you're trying to fill it with.

Why should they judge Uncharted 2 on a different scale than they judge other games? They think Uncharted 2 is better than games they awarded a 10 to... they're not going to change the scale for one game (actually, two if you count GTA:SA)

Basically, it's not efficient for them to get a new container, so we'll just have to put up with the overflow from Uncharted 2.

PrimordialSoupBase4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

And why not 22/20 or 26/20. What this is demented magazine is proposing is that Uncharted 2 breaks the seams of reality, which is hyperbolic, misleading and should anger anyone with half a brain for what criticism is supposed to be about.

It's nothing more than a transparent and embarrassing PR stunt, and you poor, dim, intellectually stunted children are gobbling this crap up.

evrfighter4828d ago

and they hype train has begun.

It's going to need all the help it can get at the end of the year. PSM3 Knows this. I wouldn't have expected anything less tbh.

aaronisbla4828d ago

And the Anti Hype train has begun! it happens with all ps3 games that gather some hype....

rockleex4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

They won't mark down any points for previous games because those games were judged by the old rating system.

Uncharted 2's 21/20 will now become the new 20/20 for PSM3. Confused?

PSM3 have given Uncharted 2 a 21/20 to display how it has raised the stakes in what a video game can offer.

PSM3's numerical rating system will remain 20/20. But there will be a new definition for what 20/20 is. It will be judged by what Uncharted 2 was able to deliver.

That's what 21/20 means for PSM3. A new definition for "20/20."

when a reviewer gives the game over %100, you know its good.

AAAA status confirmed, LOL

The Pope Approves.

Dellis4828d ago

Chill Padre, this is a Bias mAgazine, so you couldn't expect anything but this, Sony probably payed them.

Shadow Flare4828d ago

To be fair, if halo 3 and gta4 got 10/10 by most reviewers, it would be criminal not to give uncharted 2 over 10/10

Snoogins4828d ago

You might want to get some Preparation H.

OT: To me, the first game was underrated so I guess this is PSM3's way of compensating for that. Definitely on the top of my must-buy list!

peeps4828d ago

the funiest thing about that link is mooks' comment. really looking frwd to this game anyway regardless of review scores. reviews are only usefull in helping to decide on a game if ur not sure, i played and enjoyed the first so know i wanna play the second.

stevenhiggster4828d ago (Edited 4828d ago )

@2.3 and 2.1

They also gave KZ2 8/10
So I wouldn't say they were bias.

Infact wait,I think that was PSW not PSM?

reckoner4828d ago

Nice! I need to get my PS3 fixed, pronto.

popup4828d ago

I hope that human nature does not kick in now that it is hyped so much and get kicked down scores from high-brow ego obsessed sites.

mfwahwah4828d ago

"so you couldn't expect anything but this"

Every "biased" magazine gives out scores of 10.5/10 to every exclusive?

Multi-Console Owner4828d ago

You're just used to M$'s slimy ways.

Panthers4828d ago

Well, Mario Galaxy got an 11/10 so this isnt something new, but goes to show how amazingly awesome this game will be.
