Naughty Dog just released the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta, and I am beginning to think that this may very well be a serious competitor to the online behemoth that is Call of Duty. Why? Read on to find out.
Comparing a TPS to an FPS...
I disagree entirely with the notion that an unfinished TPS should be compared to an unfinished FPS. But since we're on the topic of the Uncharted 3 beta, I have to say that I'm extremely dissapointed with what I've played so far. ND took a step sideways instead of forwards: -The massive increase in the health of characters from Uncharted 2 to the Uncharted 3 beta ENCOURAGES more people to use noobtubes. This says a lot considering that Uncharted 2 was a game that ALREADY over-relied on getting power guns such as the grenade launcher and magnum. -ND made this Uncharted MP more team based than the last one. The problem here is that it FORCES people to work as a team instead of making good team work a bonus reward. Games that force players to work as a team don't work because you can never guarantee that everyone on your team will be a "teamplayer" -I UNDERSTAND that this is a beta, but at some point, common sense has to play a factor here. How could ND think it would be okay to allow a player to melee another player when he's AT LEAST 7ft away from he person he's meleeing? @Warprincess- For once, I actually agree with you. Aside from the problems I have stated, theres just something that doesn't "feel right" about the game.
OMG CHANGE Y MUST A SEQUEL B DIFFERENT!! QUICK TO THE WAYBACK MACHINE... ..oh wait, Uncharted 2 still exists and is playable. tl;dr: QQ more
^^But thats the thing..I didn't like Uncharted 2 MP(in its final form). I was hoping that ND would create an Uncharted game that I could enjoy as far as competitive MP is concerned. @Apophis- I agree. We shouldn't have to tell ND post-beta that being melee'd from 7-10ft away is a problem. That should be common knowledge.
When people play long enough to find they are always getting ambushed because they are all alone, they will stick with their team. I didn't see any noobtubes wtf? Maybe its an attachment for higher levels, if anything we can tell ND to lower their blast radius and damage. You can only do that sliding melee if the guy you are doing it to is about to die. You are going to die anyway so complaining that the guy killed you the way he did doesn't make sense. (Just leave a friendly grenade beside you before he gets to you ;)
maybe I'm too used to COD and Killzone but find TPS too slow for MP I find my self thinking way ahead of what can actually be done with the character
@LOGICWINS That is probably the most retarded collection of complaints I have read all day. - No matter if its one or seven shoots to kill people are always going to noobtube, a good example of this is Cod -What? So your saying a game forcing team work is a negative? Like BF? -You most likely encountered a glitch.
"No matter if its one or seven shoots to kill people are always going to noobtube, a good example of this is Cod" I'm talking about ONE-SHOT kills(Grenade Launcher, Rocket Launcher). "What? So your saying a game forcing team work is a negative? Like BF?" In a way, yes. I enjoy teamwork when I can guarantee that everyone on my squad knows what their doing. There are many people in BC2 who care more about their KDR than the objective..which is why in the average BC2 Rush match, half the people in a team are snipers that rarely help you actually achieve the objective. "You most likely encountered a glitch." Nope, its happened to me several times. Check the PS/ND forums..its happening to MANY people.
Go complain to them on the forums it won't help if you complain here.
I wouldn't try and point out Uncharted 3's flaws on here Logicwins, people don't want to hear it.......some people even tend to get a crazy idea that your "attacking" and "hating" the game But yeah great points, very well said
Might as well title it Uncharted 3 better than herpes.
@Dart- I don't see much of a point in complaining on the forums considering my mind is pretty much made up that I'm gunna rent the game to play the SP. "honestly the hate on the UC3 beta is just pure whining. im starting to think these useless whining are from people getting payed by rival ND companies" So anyone that proposes a negative opinion on something you personally enjoy is hating/whining? You should be more open minded.
1. regardless if a game has 1 health bar or a billion people will always use the stronger weapon along with the rocket launchers and grenade launchers 2. your second reason is debatable. putting teamwork as a bonus doesnt guarantee people will work together as well. killzone 2 forced teamwork and people did just that, now killzone 3 didnt force teamwork and you got campers, lonewolves etc.. samething with MAG it forces teamwork and if you do not cooperate youre team will lose. honestly the hate on the UC3 beta is just pure whining. im starting to think these useless whining are from people getting payed by rival ND companies
whinging and whining is what the creature Logicwins is ... u were not happy with the last one, u won't be with this one, no matter what naught dog does with this game ... some ppl r very tough to be satisfied, cuz nothing is upto their standard ... so there are plenty other fishes in the sea ... go get 'em tiger.
I disagree. I love what they are doing with the mp. This sounds like kz3 all over again. People complaining left and right. At least they are trying new things. That's how innovation happens. I would be more disappointed if they did not add any new features and just copied the old mp.
well said laika ... that sums it all ... same=stale ... bit of new stuff=keeps ball rolling ... :)
lol i know. It silly to compare them. I personally have more fun with COD. Uncharted competitive mutiplayer just doesn't feel right. They should of just stuck with focusing on Co-op.
not a surprising comment from a troll. ok have fun with bad hit detection, laggy servers, inconsistent damage, cheaters, rapid fire users, exploits. also judging by your profile i doubt you are playing the 360 iterations of cod which only run slightly better than the ps3. this is why i hate fanboys regardless of their console choice
At Logic....I like the gameplay of the beta alone better than COD entirely.
I wouldn't go round saying you like UC3 or you will get phantom disagrees , what a disgrace , some people ere have only said "they think its fun" and they get carpet bombed with disagrees .
I'm glad your enjoying it Joni, I personally feel that its over relient on noobtubes. Btw, I don't like COD very much either. ND would have been better off scrapping the competitive MP entirely and creating a fully fleshed out CO-OP side story objective mode/co-op survival mode. Judging from the beta, I predict that Uncharted 3 won't match the commercial success of Uncharted 2. I remember having much more fun with the Uncharted 2 beta(when the player health was PERFECT IMO).
I think he's comparing more the enjoyment factor and yes UC3 is better than BlOps/COD in that regard. COD is a stressed fill frustrating experience thanks to all the lag and that wonderful peer2peer network they use. I love UC3's gameplay it's very addicting and extremely fun. You have comments like Logic's that seem plausible but once you get into a game and experience it for yourself all of these criticisms fall short. GIve it a bit more time and learn the new mechanics, the weapons, the weapon mods I think you'll agree the gameplay is solid. here's a game that I played yesterday and I had a blast. you literally cannot ask anything more from game. UC3 has the right formula IMO. http://youtu.be/ceypc0SHtts...
"I think he's comparing more the enjoyment and yes UC3 is better than BlOps/COD in that regard." But thats your opinion. Can you guarantee that every person who plays the UC3 beta will beleive that its more enjoyable than Black Ops? Cause thats what your implying.
Yes I think the majority of gamers who play both UC3 and Blops will side with me on this issue. The gameplay in UC3 is more rewarding and enjoyable than any COD game...well except for maybe COD 4 I would say they're on par with each other. And if you'd watch the video that I posted above you would be able to see this for yourself. @Factual evidence You have to play more than one match brah! Come on! I would say that the better part of most of these complaints come from people like Factual evidence, who only play one or two rounds and then call it quits. GTFO
I am sort of disappointed with UC3. I completed one mat (7-2 K/D) and I just did not like the feel. The weight they added was unattractive. The sniper is ruined, the pistole sucks...I was melee close to an opponent with the pistole shot at him twice, he still manage to dodge, and killed me with a desert eagle. In Uc2 that would of not happened. I just don't like the new feel to UC3. I hate to say but I'm really ot a fan and I'm skipping the purchase. Only upcoming exclusive this year would be R3 for me.
ahahahahah you're saying all of this off the beta? Come on, now that's retarded...IMO this is really good and bringing the cinematic experience to mp is amazing! I like everything! Remember what a beta is... it's to test it.... not for to play it early... How you make up you'r mind on purchasing it on mp which is in beta and only gives you a few features/maps/guns/customisati on etc is just ridiculous !!!
call of duty is Harold And Kumar Uncharted 3 is Its a wonderful life in terms of quality.
Better than Call of Duty? i can say : BY A MILE!!!
I can probably name at least 10 games in the shooter genre that is better than Ball of Dookie by a mile. Bioshock Resistance 2 Uncharted Uncharted 2 Battlefield BF2 F.E.A.R 007 Goldeneye Wii FarCry 2 Crysis 2 Halo 2
Goldeneye Wii? Are you serious?
I was sarcastic about Goldeneye 007. I have never even played the game to be truthful nor want to. Activision's games this generation are garbage anyway... Except CoD 2 & 4. Guitar Hero, good riddance they threw in the towel on that. I am waiting for CoD's turn.
YES, even though COD is 1st person and U3 is 3rd person. I've played other betas this year and I can safely say that Uncharted 3 is the best 3rd person multi player shooter.
did you miss Gears3 beta? it's evident!
GEARS 1 was good , it was fun but gears 2 sucks , i don't know about gears 3 , maybe it's good but i prefer uncharted 3 , it have amazing story , the multiplayer improved alot , i like it , it's harder now ....
He's talking about the Beta lDeath489, and he is absolutely right. No matter what system or game you prefer, the Gears 3 beta played and ran much better than the UC3 beta. I've played both and it's really no contest, Gears 3 BETA was better hands down, but the UC3 Beta isn’t over yet. Please fanboy brigade, I am not saying Gears will be the better game, only that the BETA was better because it was. I am absolutely stoked for both games. I do give credit where credit is due though, both companies are working their asses off to bring us an incredible and enjoyable entertainment experience, and I respect them both. I can’t believe Gears 3 and UC3 are dropping in the same year, that in its self is just plain awesome, add BF3, ES: S, Batman: AC, and Zelda: SS and this is one of the best years in gaming I have ever see. Multi-console Gamers for the mega win. Boo-Ya
i like uncharted multiplayer alot and yes i like more than call of duty because no matter how many boosters others get they still dnt feel like superhuman compared to someone with a lower level its fun run and gun roll jump duck FUN no other multiplayer is like uncharted
UC3 beta just feels like a mixed bag, nothing amazing but not boring either.
Uncharted 2 was my favorite 3rd person shooter, call of duty is my favorite 1st person.
What the fu*k?! Must EVERY SINGLE multiplayer be compared to Call of Duty?
Although they 'borrowed' some ideas from COD (kickbacks, emblems) they did everything better. - I like that they made the top player's emblem appear throughout the map (always mine lol) - I like the bu8ddy system, gets randoms to play with teamwork. - The kickbacks aren't OP, the high level ones take LONG to get, so you won't see multiple players using them frequently - Boosters aren't OP - Power PLays are an AWESOME IDEA. Kudos to ND. It gives the losing team a chance to rally back, and forces the winning team to try harder. (The losing team might get to see enemy player names on screen for 2 min, or get to deal 2x damage for 2 min) - Uncharted TV can only get better as videos get uploaded - SPLITSCREEN COOP FTW (dual sign in too, take notes Activision) - Co-op Arena (didn't try it yet, but friends say its great) - Dynamic maps WAY BETTER THAN COD.
the 360 fanboys are out I see. Trolling on ps3 pages i.e disagreeing with you'r comment
i dunno why people disagree with you , it's amazing beta , i think people don't want naughtdog change the gameplay of the multiplayer , the features are great and fun even if naughtdog copied them from other games... naughtydog said that they want to make the multiplayer as big as cod , that's their goal , making it big , more options , if they just stick to original ideas they woudn't have any feature ...
As long as the single player game is awesome as always, I dont care.
Seriously, who approves these kind of articles from unknown dark sites? Next time do an Uncharted vs Battlefield 3 screenshot comparison, you'll get more hits or a top 10 tits in gaming.
So smaller sites aren't allowed on N4G, isn't that defeating the whole purpose?
I know but there is a difference between a good amateur gaming article and a generic sensationalist article to get hits.
When I first got on UC3 beta I did not like the change but the more I play the more I like it.
a pc could smoke any game system on the market i build pc,s and hell neither 1 could compete
i'll buy both so i don't care which one is better , i like the multiplayer of cod , i love the story and the multiplayer of uncharted 3 , i alo gonna buy assassin creed 3 , i'll take the other games after i get money for them , it's about time for me, i can complete alots of games in the same day i buy them it's about money ..
well said ...you beat me to the punch. bubble+
UC3 sp game will most likely be better given the track record so far. However... MP side, MW3 and BF3 both will be better imo than UC3 for my shooter fix. That said, I don't see how you can compare the two genre of games. Honestly all 3 games will get plenty of play from me so I don't really see the need to debate which is better.
Lol gears 3 says whats good
i played a couple of games and i liked it cause is not an easy game to play so if u want to be good..u gotta be good
The point of a beta is to find the bugs, the glitches and the balancing issues. Don't download a beta expecting it to be the final game. It's a work-in-progress and I can guarantee that it will change as people keep bringing up issues, but you need to make sure you bring up the issues on the official forum. Gamers are whiny babies.
This game will not pry gamers from the COD/Halo/Gears multiplayer but it's competent on its own, if you prefer that type of gameplay. Don't care for competitive multiplayer in Uncharted. Prefer playing co-op multi, but being there's only one map availabe for the beta, it got old really quick. And knowing Gears 3 just blew me away with Horde 2.0 & the new Beast mode, multiplayer for U3 will not get a second look from me. Rental... for singleplayer.There's just too many better multiplayer games I'd rather play than U3 multi. My 2 cents...
Anyone complaining about it, trying to say Uncharted 2's multiplayer was better, should just shut-up. U2's multiplayer was awful. ZERO depth to it.
I'm a huge fan of part 2 and part 3 is just pissing me off.
