Meh, that's what i've come to expectfrom Uncharted, if i'm not shooting, i'm platforming, or i'm puzzle solving. If I wanted a change of pace, i'd go play Motorstorm.

While I first thought that it was a much shorter game than the first two, after comparing my play times, i found that they were all about equal, (comparing the Crushing playthrough). I'll agree that the story was a bit more difficult to follow this time, I was on the cruise ship level and thinking to myself, how did we actually get here and why? It took a chapter select to view what i had previously done to refresh my memory.

I think the problem was, that it tried to get bigger and bigger with wach release, ND should now move Uncharted to a 2 year dev cycle to really fine tune the next one, and dial back the number of settings to hone the storyline again. I miss the first Uncharted where there was a total of 2 maybe 3 different locales ('Amazon' and the 'Island' and everything portrayed within)


Naughty Dog already have a 2 year cycle for the Uncharted games;

Uncharted: Drakes Fortune - 2007

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - 2009

Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception - 2011


LATEST PLATINUM: Hotline Miami

Interesting peice of trivia.... The reason they broke Cutter's leg in the script, and he played no more part in the story, was the actor had to go off to NZ for filming off The Hobbit... one of many script evolutions confirmed by Nolan North in his behind the scenes book...

Remember when I said I'd kill u last?? .... I LIIIIED!!

Yet another reason to dislike Peter Jackson. Cutter was a great introduction to the franchise.

Wouldn't say it was ' terrible ' by any means, bit of an overstatement there imo :smileytongue:, but it did seem like unfinished business to me, seemed as if it finished  too quickly ! (.thought they would have made more use of the supernatural element re. the agents  etc. but that's prpbably just my expectations at fault ! )  Whatever, I'm p*ssed on champagne and will probably regret posting so happy new year to all true Uncharted fans and Naughty Dog, I still love you ! :Peace:

Should I buy UC3?

Hi there,

I've been looking for a new game now for quite a while... and since I saw the first picts and vids of it (1 year ago when it was announced till now) I have been thinking of buying Uncharted 3. However I do still have 2 questions.

 

1) I haven't played any Uncharted game before, do I have to? in order not to miss stuff (storywise) or do all 3 games have different stories?

 

2) Is the singleplayer "long enough" (as I wasnt really into the MP in the beta)

 

please reply,

Thanks in advance.

Re: Should I buy UC3?

1. It's very much recommended to play the previous games first as there is a story line with the characters that goes across the series.

There is a double pack : http://tiny.cc/ganf5

 

Have a look around though as you may be able to get it cheaper.

 

2. The single player is not extremely long but depending on your game play can last 8-10hrs, if you are a collector and want to collect everything in the game you will extend it by several hours if not more if you decide to do the Crushing mode :smileywink:

 

Is the game worth it? Definately, totally loved part 3 and the co op stuff on it is fun as well.

Re: Should I buy UC3?

Isit recommended? hmm............. YES!!!! i do prefer UC2 because thats just the greatest gamr ever made in my opinion and i would play the games in order from 1-3 just so you get to know the characters better, UC2 wouldnt have been as enjoyable for me if i hadnt played UC1 first to know who everyone is.

'I am Andrew Ryan, and I'm here to ask you a question. Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow? 'No!' says the man in Washington, 'It belongs to the poor.' 'No!' says the man in the Vatican, 'It belongs to God.' 'No!' says the man in Moscow, 'It belongs to everyone.' I rejected those answers; instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose... Rapture!
