DeltaGamer takes a look at the third installment of a popular action franchise.
You know if no one made such a big deal out of the Eurogamer score it wouldn't of set off a chain of events leading people to give the game a low score so they can gain more hits. It even twists peoples opinions of the game aswell, some people I've spoke to who have played U3 talk about the same cricticsims as what Eurogamer mentioned and what other low reviews had said...even that 4/10 review.
"Twists peoples opinion" So because a reviewer says a bad thing about a game and people agree with it. But because you like the game it means those people couldnt have formed those opinions by themselfs and it must be influenced by the review. A review is an opinion and lots of people can have the same opinion
I doubt he's just the only person who likes the game. You say "because you like the game it means those people couldnt have formed those opinions by themselfs and it must be influenced by the review. " Yet he said "some people I've spoke to who have played U3 talk about the same cricticsims" some people he's talked to....which I guess must be friends not just peoples comments he's saw on sites like this one It's amazing, it's been getting great scores except these types of reviews where as the guy above has mentioned only exsists because of the Eurogamer score was made into such a big thing. If the same happened with Batman then Batman would be getting reviews like this. People are desperate for hits for their website and will do anything to get them, even if it means folllowing a troll review score.
Is it possible there are some who really liked the first two games and didnt find the 3rd to be as satisfying? I cant speak for myself as I havent gotten my copy yet. So many great games I told myself I had to finish the ones i have before i dive into something new. I still have batman AA and the first two uncharted's to finish. I know i will enjoy the 3rd but you have to admit it wasnt the eurogamer thing. There are just some people who really wanted to like this game and felt there should have been more. Thankfully those people are few and far between. I know it and you know it. The game is good. Let these people express themselves and move on. Its doubtful these smaller sites have any real influence on the buying public anyways.
A review might be an opinion, but that's no excuse for not striving for objectivity.
Why are you all tripping? This site isn't on metacritic and if you played UC3 and thought it was good, deltagamer shouldn't even matter to you at this point. Ironically, you all are just giving them their hits.
7.5 is a good score. I have plenty of 7.5 games that I like. Hopefully, the outrageous PS3 fanboys on this site don't this man's opinion seriously as if he'd actually offended them.
what unknown site is this? haha finished uncharted 3 just going for the platinum now.
Amen, working on Platinum too. GOTY for me. It's got some minor flaws but nothing game breaking. I don't expect any game to be 100% perfect though.
The review was very articulate, no matter how little known this site is.
I can't tell if a 7.5 score is right for the game because I'm very early in the Syria level so I need to finish the game first but so far it's pretty damn impressive. 4/10 is outrageous however. 7.5 isn't a bad score at all. This is one persons opinion and everyone is different. As for twisting peoples opinions of a game.....well if you are influenced by a review so much than you aren't a real gamer is what I got to tell you. Everyone should form their own opinion of the game in question and not listen to others. For example in my opinion the best open world game ever made is Just Cause 2. But many people would argue that it's GTAIV or even Saints Row 2. So a review is an opinion just like mine or yours or any other persons. I think if anyone wants to judge a game properly than they should watch gameplay videos, try the demo and ask friends.
I agree mate. UC3 wasn't bad maybe 8.5-9.0 but to put a socre like this out just shows it is all for hits. UC3 is the worst games of the Uncharted series(IMO) but is still one of the best games of the year. can't wait for UC4 :)
I'd like to know how you think it's worse? In my opinion Uncharted 3, until I get my Skyrim review copy sometime this week is in my top 3 best games I've ever played.
the story for me. The the uncharted series is made out like a movie and a good movie needs a good story and i am sad to say it but UC3 didn't have a good story. it felt rushed and dragged you from one point to another with out really explaining why. the set peices were great but i still find uncharted 1 a better game because of the story. as i said above UC3 is thw worst game of the series but i also said that it was still one of the best games of the year. Only skyrim will beat it and tells you alot for a "worse uncharted game" UC2 went so high in how games could be made, UC3 just happened to be the squeal to that game and it didn't help.
u3 = delicacy 4 trolls beside, I have seen worse score than this.
I give it a solid 8/10.... good game but overrated just like UC2
overrated? Lol, people are starting to really forget what gaming is..
you are right. uncharted 2 not only looked better....it played better
If anything the lower scores are the ones fans should be listening and paying attention too, even if they don't agree with every point. It's important to find out what people didn't like rather than listen to countless others praise the game by saying things that you already know over and over again. For BF3, there were countless 9/10s, but I didn't read any of them. As a longtime fan I looked at the 7/10s to 8s. I wanted to know exactly what to look out for and what people thought needed improvement. I didn't scream FALSE, or FOR HITS; I listened and enjoyed the game regardless, but still understood what they loved and hated.
i love uncharted 3, such an amazing game. deserves the 9.5 average score it got. :)
93 and 92 on metacritic and gameranking respectively
9.5 with all of the reviews in tact (n4g)
"Why, for instance, does every level end with an arbitrary stalemate of Drake and his friends being caught at gunpoint by the game’s cohort of villains? For the past thirty minutes groups of impossibly durable bad guys had been pumping me and Sully so full of lead that a pistol really did start to seem like a plaything. Does that one dramatic gunshot really make all the difference?" Really? You want there to be no conflict in the game? Do you want the gameplay to hold true to real life? EVERY FUCKING GAME has players die/get severely wounded by a gunshot but while in gameplay it does nothing but garner an "ouch". Every FPS should be discredited because of this. every protagonist can take 100 bullets per hour and not die, yet its a problem? How would you expect them to make the gameplay? "When it comes to multiplayer, I do not stand with the best of them. But how many shotgun blasts to the head should one enemy really be able to take? " What? Its called balance. Why doesn't a 50. cal sniper kill in one bullet in BF3? IT WOULDN'T BE FUN THAT WAY The reviewer hangs on the fact that Drake is supposed to e human yet can do extraordinary things. Well, in case the author did not know, this is a video game. The laws of reality do not always apply. Everything is set the way it is in order for the GAME to be FUN to PLAY.
Uncharted the series is a 9.5 for me... the amount of production/quality that was dumped into this franchise destroys any other franchise I've played this gen on both PS3 and 360!
I don't know why Metacritic it omitting certain publications. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves currently holds a 96 based on over 100 review scores. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception currently holds a 93 based on just about 60 review scores. Metacritic, for whatever reason, is not including certain publications that were in included before.
He kinda ruins the ending a lil bit just so anyone who`s still playing this for the first time knows.
"The bizarre, almost comical endurance of individual enemies counteracts the obvious care put into the design and strategy of weapons for this game. Grenades explode under men’s feet to their mild confusion, and rocket blasts make them stumble sideways as if they just stepped over a loose rock. " That's just bull, if you throw a grenade under someones feet in the game, even the foes with the highest endurance, it kills them in one go, no matter how often you've hit them before. Same goes for the rocket launcher. The review is riddles with inaccuracies, lies and even spoilers. Move on, there's nothing to see here.
I figure, a few 7s in a sea of 9s and 10s, who cares? Everyone tries to make a big deal of it but the truth is several games have gotten lower scores that people have purposefully ignored. They concentrate on the high scores and ignore the low ones. So pardon me if I do the same. I believe the high scores. Why should I listen or believe the lower scores? Because some guy suddenly wakes up and accuses a game of everything other games are guilty of and get away with it scott free? As soon as any Sony exclusive comes around all gamers and reviewers start paying attention and everything from menus to story to characters to campaign is an excuse to lower the score. But so many games get reviewed making you wonder if its the same game you played. The reviewers who post these scores aren't even professional or smart enough to keep the UC3 plot under wraps but I should trust them to review a game properly? Please.
10/10 love it
