I bought Uncharted 2 on tuesday this week, and I have to say I like it. I don't find Mr. Drake that annoying, and it still is a pretty damn good game. it won't change the world of gaming, but it's solid. sorry for the most un-funny comment yet.

Darn you Yahtzee! Does no character appeal to you!? Maybe a cynical Australian that beats the shit out of Drake would be a character you can relate to in Uncharted 3. Great review as always! And to the xbots or idiots using this as proof for criticizing Uncharted 2, are you kidding me? Yahtzee crucifying Halo 3 and ignoring ODST didn't factor into your purchase of them now did they? It shouldn't because it's all for the sake of the comedy. If we went by this logic, the only games we should own are Bioshock, Half-Life 2, Silent Hill 2, and Thief.

Well, Uncharted 2s my GOTY anyway. I can't believe there's people taking Yahtzee's word as fact and not buying it because he hated it.

His reviews are pure SATIRE. If they were real reviews they would be balanced and consistent; not funny and nit-picky.

Buy Uncharted 2 now, and the first Uncharted, and LittleBigPLanet, and MGS4, and Wipeout hd, and Warhawk, and Flower, and Disgaea 3, Resistance 2, and Ratchet and Clank Future:Tools of Destruction, and Socom Confrontation, and Demons Souls while you're at it, and Valkyria Chronicles, and Motorstorm 2, and Heavenly Sword, and Killzone 2 and inFAMOUS oh and that new Ratchet A crack in Time game too, and Katarami if you're into that stuff, then GT5, then Heavy Rain, then MAG, then The Last Guardian, then White Knight Chronicles, then Modnation Racers, and then the rest of the PS3 exclusives that come out at the start of next year because they're all fantastic! And best of all, they're not all shooters made for ADD kids. Huzza!

Yeah, I liked Drake too. I'm not sure what Yahtzee's ideal is for the perfect protagonist. If he values realism as the most important factor, then the whole game would be Drake panicking and going into a fetal position from all the gun fights. I don't see that as a fun game but it would be a realistic reaction a normal guy would have. I know he was slamming Drake it for the sake of humor but I would like to know what he thinks would be a good character.

Well, he agrees wtih me, and that makes him right.

Just kidding.

Or am I?

stiver:
Man definitely going to skip this.
Good looking games have never been the reason to get it. Bad gameplay is best avoided.

boring concepts.

Your going to judge your moneys worth on a review by yahtzee ? mind you that's like listening to everything bush says.

(It's funny and retarded, not right)

and about the review. Funny yes very :) but i wanted him to insult the gameplay more.

Great review, I don't know why you think that you confuse swearing with wit, you regularly go a while without swearing once, I love your analogies as always..

awful review, just awful.

I think he's just lost it, he's trying to be funny but fails... it's a game for entertainment, when did Games have to be 60 hours long for replayabiliy (even RPGs i don't ever play again, Dragon Age i couldn't even manage 2 of the origin stories before falling asleep).

He moans about Sandboxed games, he bitches about MMO's, and then he complains about cinema games. The man should not be a gamer, he doesn't enjoy very much...

sounds like he needed his hand held all the way through the game. Which he's complained about before...

So he doesn't like his hand held, he doesn't like not having his hand held and he doesn't like Help pop ups after a time when he's stuck.

There is no pleasing this moron, i've been a huge fan and watched every single one of his reviews but... nah he's lost it, he's not funny... the fact his voice is fast is no longer that amusing.

And he isn't british no matter how many times he tries to hump the british flag during his reviews from doctor who and bbc references in this one to many others. Seriously check back, he's so much in love with britain, he should just make love to the queen and be done with it.

4/10 for this review.

I enjoyed Unchartered 2, especially the marco polo bit among others, and the fact you had decent multiplayer, unlockable stuff which was nice and got extra "bonus" cash to spend if you had completed the first game.

yahtzee you're done, there's the door.

cool, so exactly the same as the first one then. I found the first one incredibly addictive and it was definitely worth ordering people to get it for me for Christmas.

guess I'll be as original as the game and do the exact same thing this year.

couldn't really see why it got such good reviews over the first one, guess reviewers took to there usual hyped AAA release methodology and started with a perfect score and subtracted a point for everything that pissed them off.

you are loosing your touch

*blinks at list of games* I am going to be broke...
The thing is about 95% of those I have or want..
Also Uncharted 2 is incredibly awesome, I would have agreed about game of the year, but dragon age dethroned it, but it is still an excellent buy.
And yeh, if you refuse to buy every single game yahtzee does not like, you probly have about 3 games.. 3 very good games, but still only 3...

If they aren't, then they cease to be funny.

Also, I think Dragon Age smells much more of moisture than does UC2, which I thought was an actually amazing experience. I had high expectations on DA and played 3 hours of it, restarting the game with a new character background, and I found it as bad in gameplay and story, as Baldur's Gate or Morrowind were good or exciting to play. Regarding Uncharted 2, I could drop the controller from the moment I started to play it until I finished it and enjoyed sopme online games. I almost lost my wife in the process. Am I the only one?

I liked Batman Arkham Asylum apparently as much as Yahtzee, if his reviews weren't to be taken seriously then how come would he state in said review that the game is actually good?

Of course, and again, just my two "pence" (to echo the british brunette I secretly fell in love with in UC2 :))

Though uncharted may not be nothing new, that doesn't mean its fine game. ITs actually hard to do sometihng new these days and its always been rare since the early years of the last generation.

Hell, even popular series like God of war didn't have entirely original gameplay. GOW was influenced by Devil may cry. Even gameplay wise, half life 2 wasn't all that original except the gravity gun.

His reviews never work if you actually like the game.

St1gar:
Wow. Gotta love all the pissy people here who found him denouncing their game, and how their little minds immediately hop into self-defense mode, forcing them to post wonderful things like "Remember, folks - he's not a REAL reviewer like the people from Gamespot! He's a comedian!" Wow. Just... wow.

But you know what really, really grinds me about this? That something just tells me that at least 60-70% of the people who chooses to dismiss his opinion and tries encouraging others to do the same would not have done so if he had ragged on a game they too didn't like. Then, he's not "just a comedian" anymore, but a genius that we should all agree with.

Ugh.

90% of all good games are mainstream.

Bull. Shit.

No fella, he would still be an entertainer first and a reviewer second. He has an opinion BUT PRIMARILY HIS JOB IS TO MAKE US LAUGH. Believe me, he doesn't hear the end of it when he doesn't make us laugh enough :)

He's no different to a comedian who exposes and OVERPLAYS the faults of any subject. Sure, there is a kernal of truth inside, but it is obscured by exaggeration and whimsy - because it makes us laugh.

The Yahtzee cheerleaders who think they can use a ZP review as a serious barometer of a game's content and popularity make me pity the future of the human race. Its like the rest of the internet doesn't even exist for them.

I hear the argument that some sad folks who would normally take ZP oh-so-seriously will try blow off Ben's opinion of a game because they like said game, but the same holds true the other way round; If Ben has a few issues with a game they don't particularly like, they hail him as the second coming: OMGZ HE SPEEKEF TEH TROOF, DIS GAIM SUX0RS!!1!! It's sad to see this fanatical BS.

This is what Ben does put into another context, so maybe those with difficulties can understand (excuse the sexist quote paraphrased from a stand-up comedian, but I couldn't think of anything better off-the-cuff that shows what Ben does.)

COMEDIAN: "I love my wife, but why does she spend so long in the damn bathroom [INSERT EXAGGERATED WHIMSICAL GAG, MAYBE INCLUDING A DOORWAY TO NARNIA BEHIND THE LAUNDRY BASKET]

YAHTZEE: "I like this game, but why does the cover system [INSERT EXAGGERATED WHIMSICAL GAG, MAYBE INCLUDING BODILY FLUIDS, A RUSTY HACK SAW AND ELVIS PRESLEY'S CORPSE]

For the record, I thought Uncharted was alright: Very pretty set-pieces, enjoyable characters, but not the most amazing gameplay - (gameplay slightly better than Gears.)

I came in here because I saw some folks saying that they would not buy a game on the strength of a ZP review. A ZP 'review'... really?

I came in here because peeeple on the intarweb woz wrong.

Funny stuff.

Awesome game, its tightly designed and plays like a movie. I agree with the above poster that said it would have been game of the year were it not for dragons age.

St1gar:

The list goes on. Moat the critically acclaimed games in existence were mainstream.

For the love of God.

WHY DO PEOPLE THINK HE IS A SERIOUS GAME REVIEWER?

Honestly, he writes comedic reviews and points out little tid bits in games that seem wrong or poorly thought out. Although these faults in design are worthy of criticizing, the comical hyperbole that Yahtzee presents is not what you should be consulting when buying a game.

But the amount of endless praise this game is receiving on mainstream gaming sites is quite laughable. I personally would give the game a 7 or 8 out of 10. Although the story is quite uninspired and game mechanics unoriginal, the overall combat, level design and multiplayer make the game a fairly enjoyable experience.

That and the graphics are of good quality and I'm not ashamed to make that point. Honestly, do you people watch porn and bash it for not having character progression and almost non existent narrative?

f&&king brilliant welcome back Yatzee!!... top draw.

It took me a while to get he is not a real review my self because the 1st couple reviews where almost 1/1 with how the game is. After a while tho he just started being a troll reviewer and I got pissed because I was sad to see a good thing turn out this way.

I really hope that you mouth breathers know that if you don't have a PS3 Uncharted 2 is a reason to buy the system. I really feel like this does not even harp on the real bad things in the game. To be honest the game is a real 9.5 game and there is only 2 things that stop if from being a 10 and that is the fact that the 1st couple areas that are all about stealth are a bit wank to do( which is not even 40 mins of the game. compared to the rest of the game that is like 1% of the game or less.) And the fact that when you are doing some epic things and the action get really moving that sometimes there is something that will insta jib you if you dont watch where your standing. I.E. your in a building thats falling down and a chair hits you in the face, killing you when the action seems to be flowing really well.

Guys don't take what he says to heart. Sad thing is, I would place this way higher then Dragon Age. In my book Dragon Age, even though its a great game, is at best an 8. Simple fact is there are games that have done what Dragon Age is doing, but better.

Take from what I said what you will.

I can't understand all the negative reaction to this video. It's Yahtzee's opinion on the game, not really a definitive balanced review. It's a polemic, and it's an amusing polemic if you just relax and take it in the spirit of things. Also, I don't actually remember Yahtzee saying it's a bad game, just that it's unoriginal and borrows heavily from Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider, and that Nathan Drake is a horribly smug character who deserves to be tied to a fencepost and beaten with sticks, which even the most staunch admirers of the game have to grudgingly admit is true. Well, maybe not the second part...

None the less, the game is described in the review as balanced, compelling and cinematic, and not by any stretch of the imagination a bad game. Ergo, he thinks it's a good, if flawed game, and the review is quite funny. I'm not just saying this because I happen to agree with Yahtzee on this one, but because his opinion is just as valid as anyone else's, so stop attacking him over something he has every right to say.

Also, I don't care if the BBC never have another original programming idea ever. Doctor Who rocks, even if the Doctor himself has turned into an arrogant tosser...

But back to my point. Great review, and keep it up.

how can you whine about the game being entertainment then be so critical of the content of the review, it was indeed entertaining as always. you should stick to watching reviews from companies funded by the game companies. if he went through and talked about all the good things about games like he does with the bad stuff how could that even be remotely funny? Maybe youre not american but we have a tradition of enjoying the failure of others and yahtzee points out the stuff that makes us happy.

Ahh the sweet, sweet tears of the bawwing fanboys makes enjoying the video all the more satisfying. Kudos to you Dice Game Man. For only you're special brand of vitriol brings this delicious treat once a week. And this week seems to be a very fine vintage indeed.

I'm interested in this mini debate inside the thread because I've noticed nobody claiming this "mainstream" gaming is crap has provided any examples of non-mainstream games that are not, in fact, crap.

Demon's Souls has been tossed out there as an example of a game that brings something "new to the table", despite being a pseudo-sequel to a RPG saga that has had the same gameplay core since the PSOne, although I'm gonna give that one just because of the cool way it implements cooperative elements into what is otherwise a crappy action RPG.

But, yeah, what is out there that is not mainstream but is also great, and beautiful, and makes you think and is underappreciated? Because, you see, even indie games that are all of those things, are best-selling indie games. And, to be honest, stuff like Psychonauts is a mainstream game that failed to sell well, for whatever reason, which is not the same as a non-mainstream game.

So yeah, please, two or three examples of non-popcorn games would be appreciated.

Im gonna guess that you're one of those people that take his reviews seriously.

I'm gonna guess that you're a PS3 owner?

What's with this prejudice? Are you going to accuse him of being a fanboy now?

no! =) I am acknowledging some level of heightened emotions (an observation really)
I own a PS3 anyway
but really I just found the comment on Yahtzee a bit unwarranted (I can almost agree with the arguments there, but it's all in how you say it)

I can sense those emotions too, and it's mostly because people are saying that they're passing up on a game based on a review from YAHTZEE! I know that Yahtzee is entitled to his opinions, but the only thing he did in the review was to pick on the bad things (I'm not complaining at him at all, it's his job and it's fun) but that makes everyone who hasn't played the game think it's flawed and starts to criticize it.

I don't hate Yahtzee, I love the man (almost in a gay way) but I hate some of his stupid fans that don't take the things he says with a grain of salt. It's like when he bashed Halo 3, now everyone loves to bash that game. I'm not saying this as a sony fanboy, but as an Uncharted 2 fanboy, because I loved that game.

Fanboy-spasm over. Sorry if I caused you any emotional distress ;)

well technically I was talking about emotions on the other side of things (oops) but no it's all good
there are those who love him and will follow his word to the bone
and those who hate him and will come on here to bash his reviews (mainly the ones where he bashes their favorite love life game)
lolll I'm primarily a 360 gamer (I use 'primarily' and 'gamer' almost hesitantly, I prefer to see myself as a determined student hehe, much better connotations outside of gaming forums in say, oh, the real social world), and I don't hate him for bashing say...Halo
he liked Gears and that was just funny (lol...w/e)
yeah I'm kinda tired, so I'm kinda rambling...sorry

hahaha oh no it's fine, I'm not one to judge where people put their time and devotion
cuz in the end we're all wasting our lives playing some form of video games-WAIT I MEAN we are all entitled to the pursuit of happiness
unless you live in like, Cuba
or Utah

Over the last year or two Yahtzee has solidified his place as one of my all-time heroes, but lately these reviews just haven't been as screamingly funny as they once were. The review of Uncharted 2 brought about an epiphany as to why: roughly 50% of all Yahtzee's game criticism boils down to the same tired point that, while perfectly valid, I have now heard over and over. That point is this: most games are inherently flawed because they were designed to pander to the fantasies of gamers, people who by definition have not let go of the self-centered 7-year old still burning at the core of their souls. We all want to be omnipotent bastards, taking and blowing up whatever we want, but we also want to be the "good guys" and have legions of peers and girls look up to us as heroes (have you every encountered a couple of little kids fighting and told one of them he was the "bad guy?" It's hilarious - and wrong). Yahtzee's description of Drake reminds me of his tirade agaist Laura Croft- a totally unlikable character portrayed as a hero even though all she does is to break stuff, steal stuff, and murder people trying to do exactly what she's doing. Thing is, I enjoyed the Croft review more because that was not the 100th time I've heard the same complaint.

Even so, I continue to take Yahtzee very seriously- and maybe that's because I think modern gaming sucks. I'm one of those original Game Boy types who finds most new games to be too easy, too repetitive, and basically too stupid. So hats off to this guy for turning me onto the one game of recent years I've actually really liked- and that's Saint's Row II.

Still not seeing much reason to buy a PS3...

See? Here's why I generally didn't agree with this review (although I did find it very funny and enjoyable): I agree with you.

I agree that the endless feeding of the mindless, stupid beast inside your average gamer (particularly your average AMERICAN gamer, mind you) results in games like Gears of War: games about a mountain of muscle and body armour vaguely reminiscent of an american football player with guns, shooting everything he vaguely dislikes while making stupid jokes in a gravely voice.

But Uncharted 2 is everything but. Sure, it's the same gameplay concept (take cover, shoot people, jump a little), but in Uncharted you actually get characters who want things, both related to the plot and in general from life. You get people with relationships with other people that go beyond either "I kill" or "Frieeend!". It's the same reason why I support GTA IV despite finding its actual gameplay rather weak... and I really can't get into Saint's Row.

The story might not win any Pulitzer prizes soon, but at least it gives me a reason to care about why I'm shooting a few hundred guys in a quest for something or other. And I did care, all the way through to the end of both games. I had to be carried kicking and screaming to the end of Gears of War by a friend who didn't own a 360 at the time and wanted to play the game in coop, and I absolutely refused to purchase the second one just to avoid having to repeat the experience.

Which is, by the way, the reason why I'm not buying Modern Warfare 2, either.

lwm3398:
Damn. You know, my friend told me it was a great game, all cinematic and adventurous and sandbox-y... I was just gonna wait for a little confirmation.

Well, it seems I've saved sixty dollars.

I take it this is ironic, because this isn't supposed to be a proper review. It did pretty well by his standards anyway, he almost sounded like he was giving it a recommendation.

i laughed like mad for the first Uncharted review. its probably one of my favorite reviews here despite the fact that i enjoyed the game. however for this one i didnt laugh once which is funny considering it was pretty much copy and pasted from the previous review.

yahtzee is losing his touch. his reviews teeter between mildly amusing and the antithesis of funny. at first i thought he was trying too hard. but after this review its become clear hes just not trying.

i dont care if yahtzee makes fun of Uncharted 2 (even though i strongly enjoy it). in fact thats half the reason i watch him. but if hes not going to make me laugh and hes not going to review the game, what IS he doing? is this just video wank hes sharing with us? is he just desperately trying to hold onto what little spotlight he has?

perhaps its just a creative slump and he will climb out of it. it doesnt look like it but i hope im wrong. yahtzees easlier stuff had me hooked. his show was better than anything on tv. his early reviews ooze with style, talent, humor and substance. sigh... id settle for just two of those at this point...

Soullegend:
I dont think I've ever heard someone say so much without ever saying anything meaningful - maybe Yahtzee should go into politics...

he could team up with Hideo Kojima. they would be an unstoppable team.

Also, you using a random meaningless score to rate Yahtzee's review is the shitcherry on top.

and now we wait for the 100+ letters asking for him to review MW2... and its nice to know that at least a few people dont think uncharted 2 as the second coming of christ.

lol, i dont take his advice, but it is funny!

So DA: origins next week?
or borderlands?
Maybe *gasp* MW2?

I doubt it, good isn't funny.

No offence:
Besides being pretty MW2 is just another shooter Borderlands has it's very own style and dragon age is a very immersive fantasy rpg that is just different from most of the tolkienesque rpgs.
Kinda like The Witcher it has a more believable fantasy world one that isn't a world of good looking set pieces with cartboard cutouts for characters. (well The witcher had pretty stiff character animation in dialogue but as for the story it is just wonderful.)
I think the whole hype around MW2 is not deserved but maybe it's because I don't really like "realistic" shooters.

Well, he said he didn't do sequels and Mewtwo is no different than MW so there is no reason for him to do that.
