you've never seen a guy who doesn't speak english before?!

no, never! tell me more about these mythical peoples and their indecipherable gruntings.

just beat the single-player on Normal. the main guy is an enormous pain in the ass; I had to fight him like 10 times and kept dying really shitty deaths. I am pleased to report, however, that there is definitely no Jetski-equivalent section in this game if that's really all that's holding you back from checking it out.

imo it's a very strong GOTY candidate, although I expect NSMBWii to end up taking that particular title.

Nah, it's not holding me back- I've already picked up a copy, since the multiplayer demo and great reviews were enough to convince me. I'm just finally knuckling down and finishing the first one.

I watched a level at my pal's house and it has me strongly considering getting a PS3.

it's kind of great how they've made it atmospheric and awesome-looking w/o going all brown and grey... nice to see some bright colours and "blue skies" and stuff.

I saw a dude in the multiplayer the other day with a big red Naughty Dog logo by his player name - wtf is with that? is he the REAL NATHAN DRAKE?

s1ocki - I know you liked the first one, so do you feel like reviewers seem to be saying, that the game is much improved over the first one in terms of gameplay? Is the shooting better (maybe a little less of it + less bullet sponge enemies)? Other than the twist and the quicktime ending of the first game, what I didn't enjoy there were the kill boxes with just too many enemies you had to deal with for such a (to me) average shooting mechanic. Loved the original's platforming, though maybe could have used a few better (not absurdly simple) puzzles.

Jeff LeVine, Thursday, 29 October 2009 15:07 (nine years ago) link

i can't believe you are doubting whether to get this or not. it's a KILLER APP, haven't you heard?!

cutty, Thursday, 29 October 2009 15:14 (nine years ago) link

My friend says that the gameplay is much improved.

Your heartbeat soun like sasquatch feet (polyphonic), Thursday, 29 October 2009 15:22 (nine years ago) link

I wanna believe (buy two games get one free @ Best Buy through the weekend)

Jeff LeVine, Thursday, 29 October 2009 15:25 (nine years ago) link

jeff as a connoisseur i don't think you have any choice but to get this game.

but yeah, i DO think the gameplay is improved. there's still a lot of shooting from cover, but it feels looser and less like you're just picking off billions of guys.

it looks incredible, and it's just a shitload of FUN the way the story progresses from level to level, you just feel like you're swept up in a serial-type adventure (well, an indiana jones ripoff, but thats ok). they do a good job of varying the gameplay enough to keep at least me interested, and the environments are pretty awesome. i really can't imagine anyone not enjoying this game a heck of a lot.

i'm not getting the stealth aspect of this game. just gotten to the jungle, and there are parts where the NPCs are telling you to be quiet and not be seen, but there doesn't really seem to be any alternative to start firing your gun?

but besides clinging to an object with O button, there is no way to "sneak" besides walking slow, right?

ya.

which is fine with me, i like that this game doesn't have a dedicated button for every action.

not only is it a KILLER APP but it's a WATERSHED GAME children will ask WHERE WERE U WHEN UC2 DROPPED do u really want ur answer to be I was swearing at dudes abt DJ HERO?

it really amuses me that this game is called uncharted: drake's fortune. when i see my bf playing it i say "is this SOCOM" and hell say "no its uncharted: drakes fortune". the way he says it u can here the colon btw. then ill leave the room.

ummmm i was talking about the first one. i realize u guyz are talking about uncharted 2: killer app i was just talking to myself

legit 40 (Lamp), Thursday, 29 October 2009 19:23 (nine years ago) link

also theres a ps3 commercial where the dudes gf thinks that uncharted 2: big stubble in little china is a movie and not a game and i saw it it reminded me doing the SOCOM thing, before, with the first one

legit 40 (Lamp), Thursday, 29 October 2009 19:25 (nine years ago) link

tbh that commercial helped sell me on the system as my girl likes to watch certain games like they're movies anyway
damn apt marketing

okay, if you put it like that, all is forgiven. I thought you meant the whole series. First wipeout is indeed unplayable shit.

Jeff LeVine, Thursday, 29 October 2009 20:58 (nine years ago) link

Uncharted 2 is a clear front-runner for game of the year, I think, but I have more to play.

Your heartbeat soun like sasquatch feet (polyphonic), Monday, 2 November 2009 18:11 (nine years ago) link

I am trying to get through Uncharted 1 to get to the gooey sweetness that is the sequel, but it's not making it easy. I just hit another jetski level, where someone actually thought to themselves "You know what's fun? Piloting a low-powered watercraft upriver against rapids, stopping dead in the water every thirty seconds to shoot instant-death barrels, and fighting enemies with preternaturally accurate aim. Oh, and you know how we gave the player an infinite-ammo grenade launcher the first time? Fuck that, let's try giving him a pistol. That'll teach him to complain. On ILX. Three years in the future."

HOW DID THEY KNOW

You don't understand, I have to. It is a sick compulsion. Plus I'm under the delusion that I'm somehow improving my skill at aiming with a joypad so I won't totally embarrass myself in multiplayer.

Okay, serious WTFs at the plot twist, where they decide to stop ripping off <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0190838/";>this</a> and <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082971/";>this</a> and start ripping off <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0412704/";>this</a> and <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087015/";>this</a>.

Telephone - the good news is that you're very close to the end of the game, but the bad news is that the end is the most mishandled section of the game

Jeff LeVine, Sunday, 15 November 2009 20:08 (nine years ago) link

I've already gotten tired of the RARGH BOOGIDY BOOGIDY shit in the German bunker, though I did like how the only weapons available are WWII-era German submachine guns. REALISMS!

s1ocki- Assuming you're not just fucking with me, the revised links or the original botched html ones? I double-checked, they should all point properly to IMDB...

yeah the end is crap.

cutty, Sunday, 15 November 2009 20:38 (nine years ago) link

end is the worst part of the second game, but how is the worst part of U1 anything other than the second jetski bit?

i do not sense the entity ted (bizarro gazzara), Tuesday, 10 May 2016 13:31 (three years ago) link

I think I'm going to save the new one for neo.

Made a start on the remastered trilogy though, even that looks pretty stunning tbh (only ever played maybe 20% of number 2 before this so they're basically all new to me). Number one is kind of a slog but not that bad really, it feels very much like a PS2 game and maybe that's easier to stomach now than it was on first release.

i have never played one of these games but i just learned that my friend's older brother was the 'technical art director', so that's cool for him.

sam jax sax jam (Jordan), Wednesday, 11 May 2016 21:05 (three years ago) link

a few hours in now and i still can't believe how good this game looks - i spent like five minutes driving in and out of a stream just to watch mud get washed off the jeep's wheels. it is genuinely incredible in places.

gameplay remains pretty solidly ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ though - run, shoot, cutscene, run, explore, repeat. uncharted 2 remains one of the most end to-end exciting games i've ever played but it feels like the formula is wearing pretty thin here even with the addition of some new mechanics

can someone explain the breathless praise this series gets? never played it but checked out some youtubes over the years and it really just looks like the dumbest shit ever

bitcoin bajas (diamonddave85), Wednesday, 11 May 2016 21:22 (three years ago) link

They're kind of boring to play but the stories are relatively well told, and there are some great setpieces -- like the train sequence in 2.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Wednesday, 11 May 2016 21:27 (three years ago) link

I enjoy the gameplay. But I don't know that you need to play multiple iterations of this game really. Seem to remember thinking Uncharted 2 was the best one.

I had fun with Uncharted 4 even though the gameplay is pretty repetitive, but it's bs that you can't play the online multiplayer without PS+. is that standard now with sony/ps4?

i just played this game like a year or two ago and i don't remember the twist at all these games are imo not very good games and not very good stories

Mordy, Friday, 27 July 2018 19:30 (one year ago) link

two weeks pass...

I started the second game and despite a pretty dodgy beginning (among which is an unremarkable stealth section), it's an incredible improvement on the first game, considering I played half of it in a single night.

Abercromb Metrion Finchos (Leee), Monday, 13 August 2018 18:12 (one year ago) link

Sucked into finish this last night, and it was at its best when it was at its most breezy. That is to say, the final boss fight was not fun, and I had to drop the difficulty down to easy.

Gwent Stefani (Leee), Sunday, 19 August 2018 17:09 (one year ago) link

same here. i think i actually didn't finish it, it was so obviously the end and was so not fun

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Sunday, 19 August 2018 19:04 (one year ago) link

three weeks pass...

I finished U3 even though it had some levels that nearly induced me to rage-quit (nb: I did turn the difficulty down to easy to beat them), and was RELIEVED that it didn't have the same endgame difficulty spikes of U1 and U2. Still, can't wait to sell the disc.

BUT, I've started U4 and the level of polish is magnitudes better (though maybe it's just the target-lock talking). The writing has always been good, but now the story is a lot more fleshed out.

And note to Josh: at least so far, U4's most nostalgic scene is more affecting if you've actually played any one of them for a little while (the stories for previous games you can just google, since the plots have been paper-thin).

Nag Reddit (Leee), Monday, 10 September 2018 18:43 (eleven months ago) link

That's what I heard. I don't have U4 yet, but I did buy the collection of the previous ones in preparation.

How is the rebooted Tomb Raider series on Ps4? It was not even remotely on my radar until the last couple of weeks, as anticipation for the new one builds. But Rise was supposed to be good, right? More or less the same idea as Uncharted (or vice versa)?

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 10 September 2018 19:12 (eleven months ago) link

Is this game about rapper name of Drake and how he got his fortune, y/n

I Don't Have Any Ears, I Am Positive (Old Lunch), Monday, 10 September 2018 21:03 (eleven months ago) link

yes

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 10 September 2018 21:07 (eleven months ago) link

two weeks pass...

Finished U4, and the finale is quite good! Minor spoilers below.

SPOILER
I didn't like the boss fight, but unlike the frustratingly bad ones from U1 or U2, it was because it was a little underwhelming. The story climax was definitely fistpump worthy. Epilogue a little meh, though I definitely enjoyed giving a dog a second treat.
