The Phenomenal Evolution of Uncharted’s In Game Visuals

GB: "The moment we saw Uncharted 3 announced at last year’s VGA we knew that we had a winner on our hands. Uncharted 3 looks amazing, much better than Uncharted 2 and almost a generation ahead of Drake’s Fortune. But don’t take our word for it. Check it yourself via the slide show we have prepared for you guys.
And by the way, for those of you who are not aware of the release date, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception comes out this November, exclusively on the PlayStation 3."

I never thought a graphic phenomenon like UC2 can be beaten, but it has, good job ND.

FACTUAL evidence2834d ago

Uncharted is truly one of the best games this gen. Also I started from drake's fortune in November 07.

schlanz2834d ago

UC3 is going to be sick. However I don't see a big leap graphically from UC2 except with this last set of screens:

The fire is definitely an impressive effect, also.

Uncharted 2 was the straw that broke the camel's back in me getting a PS3. So I decided to play the first one before getting into the sequel, and even the first one blew me away with it's graphics(playing it in 2009).

There's little difference in U3 and U2 because the changes aren't massive (like the addition of the AO pass from U1 to U2). The changes are much smaller and more in how the game works in motion than in screenshot. Side-by-side videos would be better than screenshots for demonstrating how amazing the transition has been.

DFresh2833d ago

Yeah I did too.
Been a fan of Naughty Dog since the original Crash Bandicoot games came out.
Enjoyed Jax & Daxter a little bit.
Though my favorite series is Uncharted by a country mile.
Played every Uncharted game and have enjoyed them very much.
Online Multiplayer/Co Op is also fun to play too.
I'm a Level 51 right now.

Dont act like UC is the game of all games. I love it and it has great graphics but it just annoys me when people talk about it like its king and nothing else can beat it.

Same goes for other games too btw.

metsgaming2834d ago

Its not only the graphics that make uncharted great, its everything that goes into a game like the story, music, voice acting, animations, multiplayer, etc and uncharted is awesome in all those aspects that make up a game.

KingDustero2834d ago (Edited 2834d ago )

Graphically it is. So far there hasn't been a console game yet that has beat it in visuals. However IMO Killzone 3 does look better than Uncharted 2. So from February 22nd to November 1st Killzone 3 will be the best looking console game out. Then Uncharted 3 will then take that title when it comes out.

Uncharted isn't just about graphics though. There is a lot of variety in the gameplay and there isn't a single other TPS that has MP as good as Uncharted 2's.

So nothing can beat Uncharted 2 in visuals on the consoles except PS3 exclusives.

Also no one here is acting like Uncharted 2 is the king of all games. It is one of the best games this gen, that is a fact. Uncharted 2 still has phenomenal graphics as well.

Shackdaddy8362834d ago (Edited 2834d ago )

Its not the unbeatable franchise like BaKon acts like though. I hate it when people act like that(fanboy).

I guess thats just how I think though...

Edit: @kingdusero. I guess you make a pretty good point. I mostly have a problem because I have seen a lot of people acting like it is the king on this website. IDK, maybe my PC elitist got the best of me. I try to keep that part tucked away deep and not let it speak out cus it always makes me look like an ass. :) Every once in awhile it talks....

Persistantthug2834d ago (Edited 2834d ago )

When you factor all of the critical acclaim, right now It's considered one of THE GREATEST games of all time.

I'd say Uncharted 2 has earned all the praise it has gotten.

Do you not agree?

Can't wait to see the latest build of Uncharted 3 after 5 months, going to a lot better and more incredible than it already is.

Derekvinyard132833d ago

uncharted 1 pic is forest, uncharted 2 is the streets, uncharted 3 is in a burning building. HOW can we judge the diffrent games visually if there all diffrent in enviroments?
theres forests in uc1 and two why couldent he just use these pics?

The fourth pic comparison is the most noticable one.

Awsome work Naughty God !

cyborg2834d ago

the 4th one pretty much sums it all up. Really, huge improvements in all of them.

Nightfallen2834d ago

Lots of images are comparing to Drake's Fortune alpha build. The pics with the washed out red/white shirt is not the final game. Specifically the last image.

dkblackhawk502834d ago (Edited 2834d ago )

Which makes this comparison an utter failure as always from SB.

@disagrees: Lets See Rashid Sayed then Rashid Sayed on a different IP. Hmm..what kind of a name is Rashid Sayed for crying out loud...

psb2834d ago

You don't need to get personal with him. Plus, I don't see what's wrong with this. They compared the visuals from each game which is fair. Lots of sites do a much worse than this. be cool man.

prongs1232834d ago

damn, why do I have to wait for so long goddamnit. :(
