This Uncharted video takes our breath away


This video, captured at the IDEF in Cannes, shows almost six and a half minutes of gameplay footage for Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. From a graphics and animation standpoint, this game look amazing. The jungle reminds us of a much more photorealistic Jak and Daxter (the first one, before it sold out and became a GTA clone), which would make sense considering they're both by Naughty Dog. The main character's movements are fluid and nimble. This game promises to be a true feast for the eyes.

Whether the story can live up to expectations is another matter. Though with Amy Hennig (writer for the Legacy of Kain series) directing, we have high hopes. Check out the video for yourselves and see what you think.

1. Wowsers. The atmosphere looks great, his animations can be a little stiff here and there but man, the movements of him falling off the logs and grabbing on look amazing. I just hope, will all the detail and everything that the game is longer than a few hours. Games that cram all the eye candy usually end up being rather short. Fingers Crossed!!!

2. Wow. That game looks fun. I had such a blast playing the world in Resistance last night.

3. OMG i'm getting nauseas. This game is sick! Cant wait!
It kinda reminds me of what that old game Flashback (the first one) but for 2007. Very fluid movements that can be chained together. Good Stuff!

4. Omg so this is where Amy went. Ive been waiting for a new LoK game since defiance, but im sure this will be just as good!

5. I believe that this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. This game is starting to show what awaits us in the land of PS3 as developers continue to unlock the PS3's power.

Think about it, this is Naughty Dog's 1st attempt at a PS3 game, one can only imagine what they will be capable of with their 2nd and 3rd game on the PS3.

I agree with Team Ninja....if you bitch about how hard it is to develop for the PS3 then you should not make games at all or maybe just make them for that 7yr old hardware that is masquerading as a new platform.

Look at a Wee game and then look at this....
Weeboys, you can have your Metroid, Mario, and Zelda along with countless amounts of Mini-games and last-gen rehashes with "motion" controls.

Bring on E3!!!

6. I was worried at the gunplay at first, but then it seemed like whoever was 'driving' just hadn't figured out the controls. Once we saw him take cover and aim I was less worried.

Also it looks like they've used motion controls in a much better way than most games. First with tilting rather than random shaking, and second by putting the controller icon showing you what to do off to one side instead of stuck in the middle of the screen over the action.

I'm pretty excited for this one, even though the gameplay actually seems very Tomb Raider-ish.

7. Wow, the visuals look amasing, but watching the video honestly made me kind of bored. Its not much different from the Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones games, and another thing is that im thinking that game will be pretty short. I have been looking forward to this game but now I think I am having second thoughts about this game it has a lot of hype and the visuals are awesome, but the game play seems to be more running around and firuring out where to go instead of shootin and other fun stuff. In my opinion, this game sems it will get old fast and have poor replay value.

8. Yes and please. I've always loved adventure games like this appears to be and this looks friggin awesome. Everything looks like it's coming together really nicely, with just a few small things that need to be tweaked and worked out. The environment is absolutely gorgeous, his overall animation is really nice... another one added to the list (or in this case underlined twice).

9. WOW We may have a game that is worth a shit?! Finally? Dont get your hopes up

Posted at 12:33PM on Jun 30th 2007 by CJ

10. that game looks like garbage. Looks like it will play like the old pitfall 3d http://psx.ign.com/articles/152/152101p1.html, which in my opinion was a really crappy game. Turn me on to PS3? NOPE. Need some better games. Need a lot of better games, my ps3 is looking like its ready for ebay.

Posted at 12:44PM on Jun 30th 2007 by nathan

11. Thanks nathan for that completely unbelievable post...I'm sure you dropped coin on a PS3 without knowing if their were games to interest you.

What's next...selling your BMW since you've decided it is worthless without a drivers licence?

Posted at 1:28PM on Jun 30th 2007 by Kspraydad

12. I am looking forward to this game for sure. I'm glad others thought the same as I did when I watched...the player playing is useless...lol

The only concern I have is the enemy just stood there at times and got shot.

I also wish the camera was a lot closer to the player.

Posted at 1:42PM on Jun 30th 2007 by BigDaddyDavee

13. Wow, this (knocks wood) could possibly be the gears of war equivalent for the ps3...

14. "Need a lot of better games, my ps3 is looking like its ready for ebay."

Dream on. You've never owned a PS3.

Anyway, I don't know what to think of Uncharted. It looks very nice, but Naughty Dog kind of lost my trust with Jak 2.

I absolutely loved the first Jak & Daxter, but Jak 2 was ridiculously difficult and annoying. I'm still having nightmares of restart points kilometers apart and having to zoom around Haven City in that zoomer, touching one of those "guards" by accident and getting killed in five seconds. Jesus I hated that game, what a disappointment it really was :(

I can only hope that Uncharted comes with sensible difficulty. At my age a game starts gathering dust very quickly if I have to try a boss fight or some pixel-perfect platforming section 165 times before clearing it...

What ever happened to difficulty levels? Easy for impatient losers like me and more difficult for those who can handle it...

15. I agree with nathan, i really do not have much quality games for my PS3 and Drakes Fortune has great visuals but, the game play needs a lot of work. My PS3 is ready for ebay too because it really has nothing to offer so far besides Resistance, and resistance is just a basic shooter. I would not sell my PS3 just yet there is still a few good titles im hearing about which might change my mind , but Drakes Fortune isn't one of those games that will change my mind and the decision will be tougher for me because I own all 3 consles, i almost never use my Wii, and my 360 is killing in games and online. I realy want to get use out of my PS3 because im mad i spent all that money on it and hopefully they get some good titles to change my mind.

16. @jou It seems that you hate Jak 2 because it was hard. Sure it was difficult, but that is enough to call what otherwise was a great, deep, long game into something horrible.

I dont know about you, but I find a game rewarding when its difficult, it makes victory all the sweeter. I aggree Jak 2 was hard, but not impossible.

I think I am the most excited by the platforming. You can shoot a gun in pretty much any game nowadays, but solid "climb anywhere" gameplay is hard to come by. I havnt had a good platforming fix since the Prince of persia games, and a little bit with daxter. So while some of you scoff at there not being tons of guys to shoot and having to get to places, thats the part of the game im looking forward to the most.

17. I think the footage seemed a little empty...the graphics are fairly solid.

It looks like it is very early in the game though and I imagine there is a lot more in store.

If it opens out a bit more and offers a fair degree of variety it could be worth looking at.

I think there are stronger contenders out there. But we have seen so little of this. It hard to judge.

Posted at 3:25PM on Jun 30th 2007 by sammy

18. Not sure what the big deal is over this. graphics look amazing, but the gameplay looks plain and boring. (dont attack me!) i could be wrong, but lets wait til it comes out until we get our hopes up

Posted at 3:35PM on Jun 30th 2007 by insane257

19. I like how he takes forever aiming for the headshot, then jitters at the last second and misses.

Posted at 3:42PM on Jun 30th 2007 by upz

20. Looks like a truly next gen experience, never before have i seen a character move so human like in a game. The guy playing kind of sucks though.

The offline will definitely be better than Gears, i hate the animation in Gears btw, but if there's no online then everyone will say Gears is better.

Nowadays games need some form of online to be recognised as AAA, unless they're really LONG. I'm looking at you Oblivion.

BTW was the video lagging for anyone else? I'm not sure if it was the actual game or the adverts on the site lagging my video.
