Uncharted box art and screenshots will make you say 'wow'


Click for high-res image.

Isn't that some fine box art? Nathan Drake looks like a capable gunman, shotgun casually resting on his shoulder. The green of the jungle environment and the skull juxtaposed on it give it an alluring sense of adventure. This is quite compelling box art -- some of the best we've seen on PS3.

But that's not the only thing that looks good. New screenshots showcase Naughty Dog's incredible technology, taking full advantage of what the PS3 has to offer. It's undeniable: the game looks stunning, at least from a visual perspective. It won't be too long until gamers everywhere can try our Drake's first adventure.

22. The box art is very good. I'm glad they went with a hand-painted style rather than some computer-rendered stuff. This is much in the vein of older (very) movie releases where a person would paint the poster, rather than using a photograph. This was used by Lucas for the early Star Wars, and it gives quite a different feel than simply a photograph or a goofy computer rendering (DMC).

I also like that the screen shots are actually in-game. What amazes me about these shots is the integrity of the background, particularly far-away pieces. Perspective is not diminished like in last generations, and there is enough "air particles" (fog, dispersed light, etc) that the rendered image just looks gorgeous, and that's IN-GAME.

I agree with Don, Naughty and Insomniac are my favorite developers. I wish there were freakin t's with their logos, I would certainly represent. Both of these companies are at the top of their game, and they have always delivered. These people are extremely talented and passionate, and both these companies have always made titles that could showoff a system at the limit of it's abilities. They have some of the best programming I've ever seen.

Yeah, for some reason, I never expected a demo. Who cares? This game is an easy buy.

Livi70590, I could almost take you seriously, but you didn't say why. What would need to be done differently? I thought a similar thing... the skull is too obvious, for example. However, I feel like it's okay, for a first release on a new system, and for buyers during the holidays who are grabbing things on first impressions, it tells them instantly what to expect.

Wow, upz, that link is a great example of how to go from goofy mundane boring to snap!

Solace, I seriously doubt that he said, "Hit is." You don't put an apostrophe on everything that ends in 's'.

macview, hells yes! Somebody knows about the Firefly!

23. I'm sorry but I really don't see what's so great about these screenshots. They seem to be using a very narrow dynamic range of colors, even Gears of War has more color than that. Awful, awful, awful. 0/10 from me.

24. @23 You can't have watched the stuff on the PSN of the devs talking about the game and the game running, it looks amazing.

25. All Sony needs to advertise this holiday season is Uncharted and R&C and they will sell consoles.

Uncharted will be the game of the year
R&C will be the movie of the year (yes movie) because it looks like a Pixar movie and is fun to play.
