No, no...I was just saying that it makes no sense to me.

In general, I find TPS's clunky, at least in competitive games. I can deal with it for like Splinter Cell SP.

I have no idea how anyone can think GoW was clunky as a TPS yet worship Uncharted.



When I say clunky I don't mean, hard to move or bad even, but I would definitely say the movement was far from fast paced, if that makes any sense. All your movement had a lot of momentum to it.

Games like UC, my interest in them aren't exactly fueled by gameplay as much as the aesthetic/story telling. But at the same time, IMO, UC seemed to be less of what I just described.

Is the Uncharted MP anything to write home about? Maybe it's just because it's gets lost behind the story, but I've never heard a ton on it.

I usually do too but GoW and Ghost Recon really are the best movement wise. There have been TPS I just couldn't play because the movement bothered me so much.

The maps on the Uncharted MP were decent. That's the best thing I could say about it.

I only gave the earlier ones a shot on this gen, but the Ghost Recon games had too much going on, control wise, for me to keep up. I didn't feel like keeping up with so much, so I bailed. I bought one of them on the Steam sale last year. Maybe I should give that a shot.

I would recommend watching some reviews from your go to sites, as I am biased


UC 1 was early gen, so the graphics were not as on par with 2 and 3, but the story was pretty much out of and Indiana Jones, National Treasure movie. At the time I really enjoyed it. The gameplay is average, but I really didn't think about it all too much because everything going on around me.

#2 was pretty much UC1 with a different story line and a lot bigger budget. My personal favorite out of the 3.

#3 had the best graphics but was overall OK, not fantastic.


ETA:

If you like what ND did with TLoU, you should enjoy Uncharted.

I really hope they do a good job with the MP on the new Splinter Cell. What they put out for Double Agent was just horrid and I haven't touched one since (the MP I mean). Spy versus Merc is something that looks like it would be a blast.........if done right.

I'm asking about the MP. I know about the stories. Explore, kill 90 people, have 30 seconds to collect ammo, kill another 120 people, jump off a train..............

Yup.

To each his own but I couldn't finish any of them no matter how hard I tried because of this unimaginative gameplay style.

I could watch it as a movie but not actually play the games.

Finished 1, probably really close to finishing 2 but hit my limit with it, never touched 3.

Sorry didn't read.

Mp is fun, but nothing to go crazy over.

I played for about a week and stopped.

ETA;

I doubt you will find many players on.

Strange.





I would agree with you on conviction, but the series has been spiraling downward since DA. Chaos Theory was a masterpiece and is still one of my all-time-favorites. Ready for them to go back to that.
