Read what Mike.M @ Addicted-Gamers thinks about Uncharted 3's single player campaign.
IMO it is.
Personally, I prefer the campaign in Uncharted 2, but I wouldn't say it's the best campaign ever. Honestly, I don't know what I'd say is the best campaign ever.
Maybe not ever ... but for sure it's one of the best SP campaign.
not really way better campaigns out there. was abit formulaic and what to expect and ND did not help as they literally spoilt all set pieces so i knew every single set piece before it happened. Second run through on Charted was plain boring and showed its weakness. This is a first play game only. No replay value whatso ever in single player. I think in my opinion Uncharted 2 campaign was far superior. There was alot of let downs from story to character use and plot holes story was forgettable at best.
Why is it that people always say that about Sony's first party games?? They always say the same thing. "No replay value." That's a load of crap, if you ask me. There's plenty of replay value. Different difficulties, co-op, and finding all the treasure in each level. People are so biased against Sony these days. I just don't get it.
U2 is slightly better... But best ever? I duno... Mgs3, gta:sa, tombraider 1, spyro the dragon campaigns are all awesome :)
Nope Among thieves is better IMO but there are a lot of campaings that are equally as enjoyable like heavy rain, bioshock, God of War, kingdom hearts etc.
The single player was great but there were so many plot holes and stuff unexplained
This story was meant for you to read between the lines, in which everything is easily explained except for the Spoiler what exactly happened to the wedding ring, IMO Drake lost it and Elena was upset but understood why as she didn't kill him for doing so (or maybe she is just happy that she didn't lose him compared to a ring). Sully found the ring by chance or he searched for it continuously until he found it, which he then gave to Drake at the end of UC3. End Spoiler Well I guess i just figured out the last of the so call "plot holes" in UC3. =)
I seriously doubt as though he was talking about the ring, genius.
Many people have a hard time understanding many things in UC3 but if they stop to piece parts together, outside of what is only shown then they can understand everything through possibility and likelihood.
Ha you have to be idiot not to get that How did Talbot survive the gun shot What was with Marlowes guy in the chatue Those are the ones I'm talking about
Okay finally lets begin Mr.bubbles. First of all, unless you expect to be spoon fed with UC3 story on every little thing then there is never going to be an answer for you. however unless you set your mine to accept possibilities of what lies between the story that is shown then you will learn of what is or could mean. Now to your first point: Talbot is rather simple, gun shot to the right part of his chest wearing a suit, yet is still able to survive without a scratch. Now if he was wearing a regular police vest it would obviously be too big to put under his clothes and must wear it over to stop bullet penetration. So with this most would dismiss the possibility of a bullet vest and wonder what could it be? The answer is there was always a bullet vest, but one that is not used by police and is thin enough to be worn under a small shirt. Meaning this vest was and is very likely to be too expensive for the police to buy or it is a creation that only Talbot and a few others in the world are aware of. Imagine something so thin is capable of stopping a bullet...Obviously it will be very expensive, which means this is why only Talbot has it and not the rest of his men. maybe Marlowe has one too. Next point: this one always got to me, since Talbot and his men never knew of the chateaux before it means that the dead man died on that same day that Drake and Sully were there. Now what are the possibilities of death that will make a human's body appear as it was rotting for a couple weeks? Obviously not a gunshot wound, ut what is there in the chateaux that can cause a death to appear as such? My only deduction is spiders. The man's dead body is a foreshadow (used in stories to foretell the comings events in the future of the story) of the existence that something NOT HUMAN kill the man. And therefore the only thing that we know of that is not human are the spiders. Somehow the spiders crawled up on the man in that dark area and ate him and drained all or the majority of his fluids. If you dismiss any of my possibilities without bringing forth any reasonable possibilities of your own, then you are one of those who cannot read between the lines and will never understand UC3 story in its entirety. Edit: sorry for any typos above.
Uh no. Uncharted 2 was substantially better in almost every way.
UC2 Campaign is one of the most perfect campaigns of this generation. UC3 is not even close. Pacing issues, Ridiculous plot issues, reused ending etc etc etc. UC3 is the biggest disappointment of the year for me. For the disagree's name one moment in UC3 that has the charm, the snappy writing in any of these moments. I am not even talking about the gameplay scenarios which are also way better in UC2. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I completely agree mate, story wise it was weakly written and designs or the 2 didnt mold well
I agree with you 100% dude people claim Drakes deception is the better game but ignore or back up the fact that no character development occured in the whole game and the only one we got was Drakes and sully and even then we still don't know a lot about them since they only showed how they met and that's it -_- ...It's not a bad game but don't think that it triumphs Among Thieves. maybe in the set pieces but that's about it..Remember how the chapter "Urban Warfare" open? it was short but EPIC!!!! ....
That's the major gripe I had in this campaign other than the controls. Most importantly, they didn't even bother to extend the crux moment when they reached the Iram of the Pillars. In Uncharted 2, you got to see the extent of what the tree of life did - however, in U3 - a similar event occured, only this time they made ND end that plot-point in an anti-climatic way. Moreso, I'm still very confused with the relationship between Marloe and Talbot. You can tell it was rushed, I would've rather waited till 2012 to extend the story and set-pieces and get their game design together.
I totally agree though this game is awesome, it could of been better, it could of fucking blown our minds!
I agree with you on the ending. I thought we might have gotten 3-5 more chapters once we reached Iram of the Pillars area. It did end rather abruptly imo. I wanted to explore more! :D
Best campaign ever? ...*Chuckle*. There are way better campaigns, nice try getting hits though.
Examples? Call of Duty, nope. Battlefield (BC or otherwise), nope. Gears of War (which I admit I'm a huge fan of), nope. Certainly the best of 2011 that I've played.
then i would ask you what other games have u played this 2011? This article is about it being the best campaign EVER, not just 2011, which i disagree. MGS3, Half Life, bioshock, SOTC, ZOE, Portal etc.....deserve that spot more. This just include linear games. There are some great open game too like RDR, skyrim, GTA SA, skyward sword zelda and the new Batman AC.
Baodeus, of that list of yours, Bioshock, Red Dead maybe. I haven't played Skyrim (I doubt I'd even be close to done with it), Zelda or the new Batman yet. SotC is great, just finished it on PS3 but its short. Half-Life and HL2 kind of suffered the same fate, the final areas were just not that great though I thought 2 was much better. Red Dead is one of my all time favorites but the story had me doing menial tasks while I threatened to kill people for making me do them. There was way too much of that. And I guess here is the question. The article is NOT about it being the best ever. It is a question for discussion as I do specifically state its the best of 2011 with the possibility of being best ever. I have to assume you didn't read the whole article. Probably just the blurb before you went straight to reply. Bioshock is a pretty good example though.
I think the article only mention BF3 and CoD, and claims UC3 to have the best campaing of 2011, which i thought FPS games are sually more about MP (especially for these 2 games) and not so much for sp. There are some other games i have mentioned for 2011 which i though is pretty impressive especially in story telling wise as well (Portal 2 specifically speaking). I did scan through it quickly (as you have guessed) and really thought he meant UC3 is the best EVER and here i thought UC2 was better. This is all opinion by the way, so i'm not saying you are wrong. It is just my experience is different perhaps.
Even with plot holes, and gameplay issues, yes, it is the best campaing this gen.
for me, it is the best this year!!!
Uncharted 2 was way superior. Uncharted 3 had terrible pacing. Oh and why is it that Chloe and Elena took a back seat and were barely in the story ? its like Uncharted 2 were Sully was barely in the story. But best campaign ? Not even in Playstation history. MGS3, Resi 4, San Andreas, Jax and Daxter and Silent Hill 2 were way better ccampaign wise.
Best campaign ever? YES. (amazing atmosphere, soundtracks, graphics, animations). game of the century
I think game of the century would have a higher metacritic then 92% ;) what makes skyrim then at 96% metacritic game of the millenium? i dont even think games existed for that long for 1000 years haha
People like you is what's making me hate Drakes deception !!!! Over hyping will kill the franchise.
everyone who said u2's campaign was miles better has never played uc3, they are all xbots pretending that they have played their imaginary uncharted games..
Or they just have their own opinions about the fact that UC2 was indeed better than UC3 in almost every way. Maybe if you weren't such a bias fanboy you'd have more than 1 bubble.
lololol funny...not. I have played Uncharted 2 and its one of the best games I've played this gen and I only have a Wii and 60GB PS3 so the laughs on you.
The game was good but I was left slightly disapointed at the end for all the reasons you guys mentioned. Uncharted 2 was better, part 3 felt rushed. I was also disapointed about the final few chapters and the lost city, it just didn't feel complete and seems like they left stuff out. I still think its a great game but not the best campaign. I can mention many better ones starting with uncharted 2, metal gear solid (pick one), Zelda (once again pick one), resident evil 1,2,4 God of war 3.
