Uncharted 2: single player gameplay

Uncharted 2: single player gameplay

Sony brings us some nice gameplay footage of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. This scene had leaked a few month ago in a very poor quality video, so it's very nice to rediscover it in HD.

gfx looks really nice, worried cause the gunplay still looks a llittle bland. Hope they can find a way to make the combat more exciting this time around. First one left quite a bit to be desired in the combat department. Pretty to look at though :)

Graphics look great, setting looks pretty cliche though.

Must buy game :) First one was really nice with great graphics. Don't know why, but the main character has something very friendly to him that makes the game even nicer to play. He's not the typical macho hero, and brings a certain relaxing flow to the game.

Game looks awesome. My only complaint is that the "jump out of cover" animation looks completely weird.

I agree so much BlimBlim.

I hope they fix the animation tracking. Have the vid on my PS3 and the problems I thought abotu that rolling out of cover:

Stays about 5 frames in mid air
Camera does not follow his upper body
Crazy geometry doesn't fit with the heightmap so can't roll off the 'edge'.

Hopefully they are all fixed.

As far as static graphics go, pause that game anywhere and it looks amazing. SSAO is less ovious than in the MP vid, as is the motion blur, but they also have some sort of rim lighting going on, which makes Drake pop off the screen. Really beautiful. And the hair is great too... My bet is whatever fur shader they wrote.

Enemy animations are SUPERB.

*crazy geometry isn't heightmapped, or I don't know. Just where the charcters should physically be grounded to, does not correlate with the geometry. And the roll applies to this too.

Are those graphics awesome or what!

Shame about some of the animation transitions and the lack of "weight" to the characters. Also, I hate that crosshair!

So glad they got rid of the jungle environments, just didn't think they were that convincing in the first game. Plus, I'm not a fan of jungle environments to begin with...

Beautiful, just beautiful!

Whats the bet they will sort that out in the next 6 months? I hope so. Hell from December leaked build it's improved a LOT.

That looks incredible! I can't see anything beating that in the graphics department this year.

Gameplay looks very solid as well, it seems to flow well or something. Might have to get myself a slim (?) ps3 for this game... ;)

the 5 min vid is basically the most impressive gameplay reveal I have seen this gen...this the Jak-Jak2 leap I was looking for... outside of SE (only for ff), these might be my fave devs

wow, what impresses me most is the simless nature from cutscene to gameplay it never really takes you out, it's like the 3rd person half life just much prettier.

The animations are bugging me, but a LOT less then in the last game, they were simply inexcusable. They didn't match the goddamn movement of the character, they were floaty, awkward, and just bad. Sorry, but thats the truth.

no, thats not the truth, it's your opinion. theres a huge difference.

the animations in uncharted 1 are considered by most to be the best in the business. you may not agree with that, but that doesnt make it wrong.
