Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception In Depth
Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb go in-depth with our 4-star review of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, loving the game but wondering if two years was enough development time for Naughty Dog to seriously attempt topping their outstanding 5-star Uncharted 2.

    I played Uncharted 2's multiplayer for about 174 hours. That's what I call a "forced" multiplayer experience. lol

    I personally loved the multiplayer in Uncharted 2 and really enjoyed the beta for Uncharted 3's multiplayer (not everything is perfect, but Naughtydog is a dedicated team and they're working on it). I'm a little insulted that Adam would call the multiplayer portion "forced and inappropriate" just because he's personally not a fan of it. I'm not a huge fan of Halo Reach's multiplayer, but I wouldn't call it forced just because I don't like it. Naughty Dog worked really hard on on the multiplayer component, and I know many people who would strongly disagree with Adam. It's nice to have a change of pace from games like Call of Duty and Gears of War (which both have exceptional online components). Maybe Adam wasn't very good at the multiplayer in Uncharted 3 and got annoyed with it; I don't know.

    So you decide to give this game a 4/5 because it doesn't have enough heart, but G4 gave Gears 3 a 5/5 even though it's basically a more polished Gears 2? Doesn't that mean a more polished Uncharted 2 would also get a 5/5? The thing that drives me crazy about G4 is that no one ever disagrees with Adam. I remember when Epic Mickey was released, everyone was all excited about the game to kiss Adam's behind even though it's a game about MICKEY MOUSE! Just because you've been reviewing games for a long time doesn't mean your good at it just like you constant references to obscure literary material doesn't make you smart.

    The time span between U1 and U2 was two years, same as U2 to U3. That whole "the game being rushed" and calling it a "Cashgrab" is BS.

    Interesting analysis. I too, had also wondered if Uncharted 3 would be able to keep that amazing visceral experience -- action sequences, dialogue, and beautiful environments -- that we all become so accustomed to; but I had reserved myself to the fact that it probably would not out do Uncharted 2. I thought that it would be a great game, but certainly not a hallmark like its predecessor.
    Uncharted 2 was pivotal in the role of a certain genre of Video Games in 2008, and this new game certainly does not look or feel like leftovers.
