Batman Arkham City has received almost universal critical acclaim, but once the dust has settled, can the game be as widely received as the hugely popular Uncharted 2?
For some reason I just pictured Nathan Drake in a Batman costume...
AWWW THANKS MAN ;( You just put that picture in my mind!!!
oh oh, msxbox-world. Enough said.
Does it mean Uncharted 3?
I thinks he messed up the heading.
I know it's hard sometimes, but if you actually read the article you'd know he DID mean UC2, and he's talking about if Arkham City can match it in Metacritic. Reading can be useful, it's true.
yeah i think they f***ed up the heading, and why the hell is msxbox-world comparing Arkham city to a PS3 exclusive? Edit: sorry. elshadi already pointed that out. my bad.
Because they are a piece of shit site
All that site do is talk about ps3. Why didnt they compare it to gears or halo.
its a multiplat, what do you think? Pretty redundant article.
Can it be more widely received ? I think it can. It's multiplatform for one. Also Batman as a hero is more widely known then Drake. Can it beat uncharted in terms of gameplay and graphics. Graphics, no. don't get me wrong, Batman looks amazing, but still not uncharted amazing. Gameplay wise, well thats to be seen. I am personally leaning more towards batman. uncharted is great at story and cut scenes and all that, but i think between the combat and puzzles and batmans gadgets etc, I think I will find myself going back to batman more then I would uncharted. Still I have not played both all the way through so it could go either way.
Arkam asylum allready did that as far as i was concerned i enjoyed it way more ,no claudia black and her secret testicle, U2 and gears 3 i just wanted to kill her to make her stfu,AA didnt feel like i was watching a B grade movie.
I played them both Batman was good but U2 is just streets ahead.
No. Because Uncharted's whole setting appeals to a wider audience.
errr... You have heard of Batman right?? its last movie made like a billion, arkham asylum sold like 5 million I'm pretty sure its got a wider appeal then uncharted... anyway.... ARKHAM CITY GOTY!!!
yes of course batman has wider appeal then uncharted i'm the number 1 fan of batman but this has nothing to do with GOTY and video games uncharted 2 was out in the same year batman aa was out and guess which game has the most awards in video games history ??? batman ac is super awesome but also uncharted 3 is super awesome as well at the end for me as ps3 owner i win bec i get to play both
Elshadi, until I can zipline kick someone in the face - then batterang their buddies to obilivion in the Uncharted series... it's just not as cool.
Just like both Nolan North voices both games, so win win
@TVippy What is it about uncharted's setting that you would say has wider appeal ? I really want to know
I meant the gameplay itself - more people like to mindlessly run and shoot bad guys, than move at a slower pace and look for riddles.
Wider appeal than batman? Are you feeling okay?
Hey havent you heard? The closed minded "hardcore" community on the net speak for everyone in the gaming world! /s Batman ARkham city from what Ive played can defenitely say it will give Uncharted a run for its money.
Why even compare AC to Uncharted 2? They aren't even the same type of game! Besides, if they wanted to compare the two, why not just use Uncharted 3? I guess that would detract from the flamebait the article is trying to set out. Garbage article and garbage ass trolls making comments in here.
Pot calling the kettle. The article is comparing their very high Metacritic ratings, not the actual games themselves. Try reading the article first before posting.
As we all know Uncharted 2 is sitting at a grandiose 96/100 on the Metacritic scale. I think Batman:AC might match that score - it's looking like it certainly deserves to. Uncharted 3 could match it. I think both will find themselves sitting snugly at 95/100.
Batman:AC is currently at 97
On Xbox 360 it's at 95/100, with 32 critic reviews. PS3 version is sitting at 97/100, with only 12 reviews though. Statistically it should go down and balance once more reviews come in.
You can't really say if it'll go up or down. Only thing you can say is what its currently at.
Doesn't matter, Grand Theft Auto 4 has the highest metascore this gen so therefore it's the best game ever right? And before people get confused, I'm saying that just because Game A has a higher metascore than Game B doesn't mean it's better.
PS3 owners can play both.
batman may be goty this year, but we still got uncharted 3, bf3 and skyrim coming out.
This is very hard to choose from but I personally want AC to atleast equal UC2.
The only released review for Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is a 9.9 from Spanish gaming magazine Playmania. So technically at this time, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception holds a 99 on Metacritic which makes it the highest rated game of this entire generation, having even outdone Grand Theft Auto IV. Just saying, is all. Even though in all likelihood the Metacritic score will drop when the dust has settled... or will it?
i want both of these games i dnt care what people think about whatever both are great forget the reviewers ill make my own review
Since there are too many fanboys here i might as well say Arkham City will be the best multiplatform game and UC3 will be the best PS3 game. But personally Portal 2 i still want as game of the year ^^
After having played Arkham City, I can guarantee you, Portal 2 is streets behind compared to it.
I gotta wait till November 8 to play lol ><
because metacritic is a good indicator of wether a game is good or not...... By that logic GTA IV is da best game EVAR! But the point remains I think luigis mansion is better.
currently the 360 version sits at 95, and the ps3 version at 97. Average that out and it's the same as Uncharted 2. However this is with a lot less reviews so less of a stable and reliable metascore. Now that's out of the way I'd just like to say that whilst I agree that Uncharted is one of the best this gen I think that metacritic is a load of crap. Some games have far more reviews than others, yet both scores are deemed as legitimate as each other? Flawed if you ask me. Arkham will be brilliant, but I'm now waiting for a price drop after the catwoman bullshit.
the 360 version sits at 95 with 38 reviews while the ps3 version its at 96 with only 16 reviews they are the same on both platforms with the 360 version looking slightly better they will score the same when all the reviews are in for the ps3 version about metacritic you hit the nail on the head I really couldn't have said it better
glad to see I'm not alone in this thinking, the fact that one site has managed to affect developer bonus payments is insane.
