Question Does anybody else agree with me?

That this game is a little bit over rated? I mean its still is good but don't you think people give it more credit than it deserves? Uncharted 2 and 3 are absolutely amazing but I think this game isn't as good as people say. The main thing i like about it is that its only for Ps3 and it has good graphics for 07. I feel like i'm alone cause i think its over rated. Anybody else agree with me?

I disagree, IMO 1Uncharted is just as good as 2 and 3, if not better than 3. After playing Uncharted 3, going back to one didn't feel much different. For a 5 year old game I think the game holds up extremely well. Yes the graphics are not as good as 2 or 3 but it's the start of the franchise and it set the foundation for 2 and 3.

Overrated, perhaps you should read some reviews

Easily, I only gave the game a shot because of all the hype. I was very dissapointed with it...

Horses for courses.

I played it third, didn't think it came close to the others in terms of overall quality, from the graphics to the gameplay to the story. However, I still really enjoyed it. Having played 2 and 3 already, it was nice to get some background for the gang's later adventures.

I wasn't playing PS3 games back in 2007, so I can't say if it lived up to the hype at the time. It appears as though in terms of what games were like back then, it certainly was quite something. I will admit that it doesn't quite seem to have stood the test of time. It kind of feels like a demo for 2 and 3.

I'm playing this as my first PS3/UC game, and so far I have to say it didn't live up to the hype for me, but I feel like if I'd gotten the game when it was first released it would have been amazing. My main problem is that L1 and R1 are the buttons for aiming and shooting which is a bit of a pain when you've become accustomed to using LT/RT or L2/R2 for that. I also kind of really suck at the game right now, and die quite a bit even on Normal.

Definitely agree with you. Glad I am not alone. I really only played this one to get to the other two (as I hear they are a lot better). This game just wasn't polished enough. Buggy firefights and platforming. Blech. Give it a 7/10 or maybe a 6/10. Hoping for so much more in UC2 and UC3.

Not that its worth anything, but I agree with the OP. Uncharted 3 is the 3rd best Uncharted. ND is a solid dev and deserves credit for an amazing game, but... but... it just didn't do it for me like UC1 and UC2. *shrug*

Buy the game anyways... it's still worth every penny.
Gaming for fun... picking up some platinum along the way.

If the game just stood on the battle system alone, or the stealth system, or the climbing system ... then it would be overrated.
But with all these gameplay types merged almost perfectly into one , is something we rarely get to see.

If we ex. says 100 people plays the game and 2-3 don't like it. Is it then overrated? Not at all. There's always a few people who don't like a certain game.
