Ask me about being an elitist jerk

Time for hype

Around the Network

I'm guessing 95%

Is it just me, or the new TV spot has a little bit better graphics then the previous ones?

Well coming off of almost Naughty Dogs greatest year and all those awards for Uncharted 2.It got 96 on Metacritic right?So judging by that its going to be 96+ on metacritic.I doubt it will be lower because that would just mean the game was worse than its predecessor.

Its not that simple. Any game that has 2-4 points lower than its predecessor is MOST times the better game. To think UC3 will top UC2s insane high score is ..not going to happen. Gears 3 scored 1 pt lower than Gears 2 which scored one point lower than Gears 1. Forza 4 and 3 same applies. If you are a meta whore like myself you will know that by todays standards, if a game is to recieve 2-4 pts lower than its predecessor, it is better. LBP was revolutionary in 08 with 95 meta and most GOTY awards. LBP2 3 years later got 92. Its the first game but a lot more basically. If Un3 gets at the very least 92, itll be considerd a success and solid sequel. If it manages to do what it did in 09, that is left to be seen.

You may be right but I hope you know that Uncahrted 2 is different from all those games.Has Gears won any GOTY awards?What about Forza no.Usualy if a game won GOTY by alot of reviewers most likely they will rate the sequal higher.Look at Uncharted 1 for example it was good but not on Uncharted 2's level.Then Uncahrted 2 got better and so on.So what im saying is Uncharted can only get better.Even if Uncahrted 3 gets a 95 I can honestly say Uncahrted 2 is the best SINGLE PLAYER game ive played this generation yes meaning better single player than any Xbox360 exclusive and PS3 exclusive.

Yup :P Graphics have been improved since some older trailers and demos.

I chose 92%. I expect it to have some of the best graphics we'll ever see and some set pieces that will blow us away. I don't know what the story is going to be. So why so low?

Lately, even when games throw some new stuff in and polish their core gameplay (Gears, LBP, Batman) and are really well made, reviewers aren't cutting them any slack. Despite tremendous differences, variety, and presentation, they're saying "Oh, it's just more of the same." As good as Uncharted 3 is likely to be, I suspect that any improvements in online, story, graphics, and control will be ignored by an elite few reviewers. They'll give it 8.5/10. Uncharted has gunplay, climbing, and great graphics. Unless they add Pokemon collecting, a card game, a precise driving in an open world environment, an RPG level-up system, and other things that Uncharted players don't even want or need, Uncharted 3 won't go higher than a 92.

Naughty Dogs' way of working is that the last months of development are used to polish the game's visuals. So it wouldn't surprise me if footages of the final build are better than what we've seen not too long ago.

I voted for 94. Hope it gets higher than this...

Now you are being a pessimistic! I got to ya finally! :P

Honestly 95 is the guess for me.
