Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune – First Review

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Pack Front.jpg

Hey everybody, I’m back again!

I just wanted to drop everyone a quick note here five days before we launch Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (a day earlier than expected even!). I also wanted to point out that our first review has posted with IGN, be sure to check it out.

All of the Naughty Dogs couldn’t be more excited to see the game finally hit the shelves. The marketing machine is starting to move into high gear, so hopefully we’ll all start to see Nathan Drake plastered all around town. On the note of the marketing machine, check back with the blog later this week to catch a sneak peek of our TV spot.

The response to the demo that we released last week has been outstanding. I’m really glad everybody’s enjoying it. And I hope I don’t come across as too conceited to say that the complete game is even better! We really tried to design Uncharted as a comprehensive package and it was challenging to select a slice of it that captures the huge variety of gameplay that we have in the game.

In closing, I’d just like to say congratulations and thanks to everybody who had involvement in the creation of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. And that includes all of you on the forums who have been giving us encouragement and feedback along the way… believe it or not, we were listening, and many of your comments helped us make Uncharted a better game.

any comments on ARMY OF TWO?

Army of two is going to be smack nuts on the ps3. Trust me. I’ve went hands on with it and it’s not good. Sony needs genre specific games. They need to start poppin’ and getting games you can’t find anywhere else. A Zombie game would be great. An exclusive fighting game “tekken isn’t it” A game like Mass Effect… Sony needs to start thinking for the market and not against it.

I would like to Thank each and every one of you at Naughty Dog for a fantastic game.

I know it’s confirmed, but when? In my lifetime… Sony has a knack for putting things off by 5 and 6 and 2 years at a time. Don’t look for it anytime soon. Maybe with our Home and Dulshock 3’s…?? hahah

Gamesblow – You need to be more patient. Stop listening to the media crap. The PS3 just turned one. The PS2 and even Playstation didn’t have many great games their first years either. But over time they both took off. The Xbox 1.5 had a one year head start on the PS3. Yet the games don’t look better. The PS3 is just getting going. If you dump the PS3 now you’ll regret it in 2008. I say 2008 is The Year of PS3. Most of the big games coming out will be on the
PS3.

This will be the last game I buy for the Ps3. I’m going to experience and enjoy it… And come December 1st I’m trading my Ps3 in with all the crap I’ve bought for it. I’m done with Sony and their mediocre crap. 8.5 for their AAA games?? Please… We paid a premium price to play shoddy ports and 8.5 scored games? I don’t think so. too much money and faith invested in Sony. I’m out after Uncharted, finally! thanks Naugtydog, it’s been a great ride, but I’m sure I’ll see you on the xbox 360 after a few more weeks of the Ps3 only selling 64,000 units in the us. haahah.

Pharmd – Why are you only listing the 8.5 review? That’s one review of Uncharted. Why not the 9.1? Besides, the scores don’t matter. You can tell how great the game is from the demo. I can’t believe people now. You have zero patience. The PS3 was expensive but it was designed to last for years, unlike the 360 and Wii. You’ll wish you had your PS3 when the great games all come out next year and the 360 only has the same old rehashed FPS’s.

i dont know whats better or what i’m anticipating more, the game or you leaving….. you’ve been nothing but a babygravy eating SOB the whole time you’ve been here so i guess the troll’s visit is over and he must return home to M$. and how have you been playin AC when it didnt come out til the day after you posted about it, more proof you are NOTHING….. youve come from the stagnant end of a shallow gene pool…. stop breathing our air, you dont deserve it!!!!

Yeah, pharmed needs to stop bieng so biased towards Sony. Geezee.. What’s oyur problem with Sony, pharmd? 8.5 is a good score too, why didn’t you list the better one that it got ? 9.1? I think you’re biased.

Evan Wells – I just preordered Uncharted!!! Put down as much as I could (alas $5) but I can’t wait till the 19th. I want this game soo bad. Loved the demo and I’m 100% positive this game will be MUCH better than the demo. Congrats on your guys hard work, it has def paid off. The hand-to-hand combat is amazing, the gunplay is sooo much fun, the A.I. is VERY smart and adapt rather quickly to both you and the envirnemt, and the envirnments are truely “awe” inspiring.

I read today something about parents not playing video games with their kids but when I started playing the demo last Friday my mom walked in and thought the game was definately something along the lines of a movie. She then proceeded to sit down and watch me play through it (she usually walks out of the room). At the end of the demo it left us both wanting more, and that was just my mom!!!

Another thing that I found funny was that one of the guys at Naughty Dog said that when you do get a kill it makes you feel like you deserve it, like it was something along the lines of an accomplishment. I gotta hand it to this guy, he hit the right on.

*off topic*
@ gamesblow – go back to your cave (aka basement room setup by your parents) you troll (you’re probably a 34 year old man with no social life, outside of trivial dinner conversation w/ your parents).

@ nephlabobo – too bad that YOU are the stuck up gamer that probably still lives at home to.

the two of you need to get a life and stop bashing and hating here. The only thing you are accomplishing is making every1 here think your old grown men with no lives outside of TV soap operas and video games with kool aid and lunchables for dinner.

Cheers,
Lh

Evan Wells, I’m terribly sorry for the way this turned out… I get banned from forums all over because people praise and wanna talk about me and only me and not the topcis at hand. It’s because of my successful ways. I do appologize and I will no doubt be playing this game when it hits my store. Alreayd bought and paid for. Thank you for doing something different and not going back to J&D just yet.

Pharmd, you’re offensive and obsessive. If anyone here is an eye sore it’s you and your insidiously vulgar comebacks. If you can’t be witty in a clean way on a forum roaming with children, maybe you shouldn’t be here. Look at my post… I use something called tact, something you lack. I use suspect wording, not vulgarities. Learn to debate better. That’s why people know Gamesblow and not you… Like me, love me or hate me. atleast I’ve got tact. I’m leaving.
