ZTGD is teh bias!!!! Payed by M$ :D
I hope he's enjoying all that M$ money in his pockets.
"Halo 3 ODST blows Uncharted 2 out of proverbial sea." Oh no. This is gunna start a crapstorm... Even if it WAS true, comparing games of two different genres in a review is poor journalism and the bringing down of one game to up another isn't right either. Edit: Whoops..false alarm, the guy was joking. I shulda read the article first. All he wanted was ta see people on N4G go nuts lol. Well played sir, well played.
Seems like he contradicted himself. Play games not consoles. Well ODST is on the 360 while uncharted 2 is on the ps3. Two different consoles and two different games.
QFT man. Comparing a FPS to a TPS (third person shooter) is comparing apples and oranges. Only reason he said that was to appease the fanboys who think Halo is the be all end all of franchises. Even still, another Halo review? How many do we need. If I recall a few days ago before TGS started the WHOLE FRONT PAGE of N4G was practically Halo 3:ODST reviews from lots of sites I have never even heard of. Enough is enough. No more Halo 3 reviews. It's good across the board so just get it when it comes out. You will like it if you enjoyed Halo 3.
.... then i have a 45 inch penis! uncharted 2 > halo
i agree with your comment...WTF does uncharted have to do with Halo ODST? the same goes for gamereactor...what did Halo 3 or gears MP have to do with Uncharted? Do these reviewers not understand that these games are meant for the fans of said series? If ur a halo fan u'll buy ODST...period...and why would u care if it's better than a game on a different console? Same if you're a PS3 only owner, all you care about is what's on your system, why do you want to know what the reviewer thinks about gears or halo? journalism is becoming an effin joke Also, how can the Halo Reach beta be a positive worth mentioning now? (he lists it as a positive in his review) When he can't even play it?! How does he even know if it'll b good or not? LOL (not saying halo reach beta won't be good) . . . . . . edit: the reviewer does mention he is only kidding with the uncharted remark....but still....was it really necessary????
lmao.. just seeing the reaction from N4G makes it worth it. So predictable. Just in case nobody caught the sarcasm in my first comment. It was there.
"Odion writes........." ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzz.........
Looks like someone got their Halo3:ODST gift basket. But seriously why do you have to bash a game in order to review another, obviously this guy is looking for hits. The title of games journalist is an oxymoron. Edit: @ Ju Well thanks a lot now i feel like a real idiot ;). Though 9 out of 10 times i am right :P
Let me continue, for the ones not reading the review: [Halo 3 ODST blows Uncharted 2 out of proverbial sea.] Now one of two things is going to happen, as most of you will be reading this from N4G and you'll see the first 3 lines of this review as the description on the news submission your either going to not read what I've written and just call me biased or your reading this now and I will clarify that I am 100% kidding, I am sure Uncharted 2 is going to be an amazing game and it's silly to compare the two. http://www.ztgamedomain.com...
Most of the comments prove that nobody reads the articles on N4G before spouting their mouths off. And that was exactly the author's intention.
Odion writes: "Ok Before I get into the nitty gritty of this review, before I tell you guys what it's like to drop in to this new Halo title I am forced to say this one statement. Halo 3 ODST blows Uncharted 2 out of proverbial sea." That is definitely going to anger a certain majority around here. How do you even compare these two games?
they do it to get hits and try to get loyalty out of fanboys.
READ THE ARTICLE!!!!
wow just read the article, they guy is a douche for doing that. the reason i didnt read it was because only a stupid jounalist would compare two games that are not of the same genre.
Odion, please tell me how I can get hold of some MS-distributed bags of money! What's this no-name site anyway?:P
Its very easy to get the money, go down to the MS HQ, open up wide and bend over.
I agree with the score, but have no idea what uncharted got to do with this.
edit: LOL, just read the line. It's pretty clever what he did, and he definitely got me fooled for a brief moment.
roughly translated, i need hits to my site.
Indeed. Flamebait which makes anyone with half a brain(half more than this fool anyway)doubt everything he says which is a shame cos ODST is OK. It doesn't need no marks like this cretin making it's life difficult by hitching his doltish wagon to it. Nugget. Thing is he probably lost loads of hits in his rush to attract them-I definitely didn't want to read it after seeing such a fanboyish beginning.
He even says he's kidding in the next couple sentences, and mentions the fact that people are gonna come from N4G and get pissed off at the first sentence. Which means there was no other reason to say it aside from getting hits. It'd be one thing if it was a legitimate comparison he ran with throughout the review, but he just says he's kidding and cops out by saying it's silly to compare the two (which I agree, they're extremely different games, they shouldn't really be compared). Cheap tactic.
Well, then he's even more thick than I gave him credit for-he deserves an award doesn't he? Taking the pi55 out of N4G by fuelling it for hits in his leading sentence when that would be sure to turn just as many off is epic idiocy.
ODST is nice game, but a nine is not acceptable
Bought the game completed it on highest setting took 4hours 50 mins ish, And well the second disk is the best part of it all the map packs, But still not worth the price sadly...Sinle player is awesome great story telling, But it isnt worth it and the guy says odst blows uncharted out the water, but he hasnt played it, not released or even give a review out yet. And i having played it for a short period the graphics the feel, the multi thrown in, its awesome.Soo hmm biased im sorry to say it andim a huge halo fan, but not worth it. Both games are different in nearlly every way so you cant campare, only on reviews, so to be honest i think theres a alot of favourism going on to be honest.
@Rydek: Stop lying, 5 hours on easy.
All I gotta say is wow. And to think that this site is actually considered to be one of the most unbiased sites on the web. Thats statement just proves that everyone, even crappy sites like ZTdomain, play favorites, regardless of quality. Edit: Sorry, I wont give this crappy site any of my clicks, especially when it starts off saying that ODST is better then any game, not just Uncharted. BTW, there is a difference between kidding and being totally unprofessional.
And if you would read the review, he states that he is 100% kidding and that Uncharted 2 is going to be amazing.
its called reading the article lol.
I agree completely, that's so shame for a game like Uncharted 2 bringed the game industry to a another level of gaming, but is the game sites won't follow the footsteps like Uncharted 2 to a higher level of gaming.
Odion your plan worked.All the comments above proves that most of N4G readers don't go beyond the title LMAO
actually I was expecting a lot worse.. to be honest with you. With the way people say things about sony fanboys.. this was a let down
The article is only at 100 degrees. Truthfully, people are tired of ODST reviews. If this would have been one of the first reviews, you can bet it would be a million times worse.
once I saw the name "Odion" I knew what to expect
Odion, you are the man. Thank you!
This smells of Bias... Seriously he did not have to even say that comparison but he did. What a stupid journalist, NEVER EVER EVER start a flamewar by comparing two games from the opposite console and making it obvious which one you like. At that point on the review for that game becomes literally useless...
lol click on the link and read the rest of the paragraph. N4G I love you guys but you get angry to easily.
Why'd my comment get deleted? I said the first few lines are flame bait regardless if it was a joke. Seriously and this guy is a mod? WOW, I hope other mods are seeing this, this guy doesn't deserve to be a mod.
read the article guys, the author said that just for the lulz from us. Even though it's an unprofessional thing to do, he admitted that he doesn't believe that. Seeing some better reviews for ODST, would have been nice if they weren't charging 60 for it.
But this is clear evidence that the SONY fan is the easiest to bait.
^^^ Clear evidence that fanboys are easy to bait. I believe I am a Sony Fan yes? So did you see me rage? No? Okay Then. GF.
I think you don't understand why ODST a game use 2 year old engine en get a 9, this is not the way how the sites give this game such a high score, its a insult who developed Uncharted 2. Uncharted 2 is the highest level in the gaming industries, ODST won't even close. Thats the point what peoples are trying to say, not Sony fan and that is a big different.
well played Odion.
I can almost bet that it wont even be a GOTY09 nominee. Im not taking anything away from some of the high scores it got which in my opinion it didnt deserve, but if this game is as good as the halo fanatics try to make it out to be, then your telling us you have CONFIDENCE that halo odst will beat out uncharted 2, modern warfare 2, killzone 2, batman aa & demon's souls in terms of GOTY09 where it really counts? I bring this up because I wanna prove a point that the halo series is only special due to the ammount of sales. Other then sales the series is mediocre and is just another FPS. When halo ever wins GOTY then ill give it CREDIT but for now its just anothe expansion pack milking ppl for nothing new but the same game we all played 2 years ago with a feature they took from gears & gave it a different name.
And it is Halo, for all the "changes" they made it still feels the same, to me anyway. But I did just start the campaign, so I still have time to change my mind. Halo: CE is still the best in the series IMO.

people read the thing ..
:P :P :P :P I can't stop laughing!!!! RRoDst blowing Uncharted 2 out of the water!!!! ahh boy bots love there expansions, no? :P :P Put Halo on a lit fire cracker about to blow and the bots would still buy it :P :P :P Don't worry before you blow your bubble I did read it, just mentioning it makes me ROFL!!!
You bore me to tears with your crap. Honestly, you bore me to the point of poking my eyeballs out with a fork.
yes cause your one of the more exciting people on N4G correct? /sarc your avatar looks like you took it after you licked someone's ballsack
MS sells their expensions to nearly all gamers out there.. while SOny need to bundle every exclusiv or make the game platinum after 6 months cause nobody buys them.. but but but best graphics and quality.. and nobody buys it, lol!
this is a good observation actually.
he made a funny!
but i find it absolutely HILARIOUS how suddenly nobody wants to compare an FPS to a 3rdPS when the shoe is on the other foot in terms of production values and quality. when Gears of War 1 came out, there was no end to the comparisons between it and Resistance 1. graphics, gameplay, MP, etc. even though Gears is a 3rdPS, and Resistance is an FPS. everyone was so quick to declare Gears the "winner." same thing happened when Gears 2 and Resistance 2 landed last year. again, in Gears 2's favor. but OH NO, now, now it's a different story. now that it's Halo 3: ODST and Uncharted 2, nobody wants to compare an FPS to a 3rdPS when the odds are heavily in favor of Uncharted 2. i agree. i think it's foolish to compare cross genre games. i thought it was foolish with Gears 1 and 2,and Resistance 1 and 2. i even thought it was foolish with Halo 2 and GTA: San Andreas (released at the same time on "rival" consoles). and i think it's foolish now. maybe now the fanboys will grow up, but that's highly unlikely. i finally got a chance to play ODST today at the game store across the street, but i'll leave my thoughts on the game's quality to myself. it seems to be a sensitive subject these days...
Is it really so hard to get "you're" and "your" sorted out? :/
Apparently so, lol.
hahahahahaha!!! Biased review written by a guy, according to his bio, who loves his PC and Xbox 360. Obviously biased as he would not rate the flagship title of his "loved" console lowly (like he should).
are u gonna cry?
"Tired of all this fanboy sh1t (me included). Gonna take a small break, not post as much.I'll try being a real gamer now instead of a "droid."" -Saaking
ohh I get it... So, if an article talks bad about Halo ODST than is valid and should be embraced but if they don't then they are being paid by Microsoft. Not to mentioned that right after some dumb comparison is mentioned... like uncharted 2... yeah... why does this reminds me of Resistance 1 when Halo 3 came out? I am not even going to mention sales but I will talk about popularity. http://en.wiktionary.org/wi... popularity - The quality or state of being popular; especially, the state of being esteemed by, or of being in favor with, the people at large; good will or favor proceeding from the people; as, the popularity of a law, statesman, or a book. keyword, "at large".... when any game on the PS3 reach the same level of popularity which represent a clear indication of what the masses agree and act upon to the point of be willing to pay $60 like they are willing to do with games like ODST.. then you earn the right to even mention games like uncharted in a Halo article. I honestly do not get what give this handful of SOny leg humpers the right to think that their minority opinion about what game is best over the majority of people that actually vote with their wallets. ohh yeah.. wow.. you mean like LBP, Resistance 2, Kill Zone 2, etc.. that only sony leg humpers cared to hype let alone buy? lol! sure because the opinion of the few matter more than the opinion of the many.
The game suks looks like a Haze wannabe ripoff.
are in reference to; 'Halo 3 ODST blows Uncharted 2 out of proverbial sea.' Brilliant. Way to go guys, way to go. Next time maybe you could actually read the article?...instead of blasting 'fanboyish' hatred and spewing unnecessary statements that have wasted your time and mine. Thanks again.
why would they even try and compare odst to uncharted. uncharted is GOTY. it's not out yet but it's GOTY. and plus, i mean odst is on ps3 and uncharted is on 360. consoles are differant which means you shouldn't compare the 2.
i played odst at my buddys and i thought it was a rip off. only think i liked was firefight
Is absolutly terrible its weak. FOr ZT to give it a 9.2 is Fooking ridiculous. The game is boring and the flashbacks put me in mind of Lego Star Wars where you have to keep going back and going through a different door. That game blows. Same lameass AI
