Uncharted 1's graphics aren't that good. Have you played it recently? Don't get me wrong, I love it, I like it MUCH more than U2, but the graphics are completely outdated. Mostly in regards to textures and face, there are probably about 50 games out now that beat it out easily. Don't get me wrong, I don't think the graphics are bad, but they aren't all that good either.
Again, this is U1, U2 still looks phenomenal.
@OP, rock on, I'm all for people going against the grain. Don't let some these people bring you down just because they worship the series. That said, if you don't really like a genre, you probably shouldn't make a post about a specific game you dislike. That would be like me making an "I don't like God of War 3" thread when I usually hate that hack-and-slash type of gameplay. It just comes down to this, what's the point?
Also, yes the gameplay is pretty meh at times. Even though I love U1, the gunplay is stiff, the platforming/climbing is a joke, and the puzzles are patronizing. If the game(s) didn't hold your hand so much, I think I wouldnt have enjoyed them both more. Puzzles amount to "press select for the answer". You don't have to be too accurate with most of the platforming/climbing, except those handful of times when you need to be EXTREMELY accurate. Consistency would have been nice. I just love U1's story.
