Maybe it's just the video capture, but if not, then Uncharted Vita is running at significantly less than 30fps. Looks more like 20fps.

It's just these videos, the game runs smooth.

Really amazing!

Yeah, the game is smooth as butter. Not sure why the videos are suggesting that the game is running at 20fps, but I can assure you that it's not.

Yes...I think ND wouldnt allow any console to run their games slower then 30 FPS. :-)

That water was phenomenal :\ seriously some brilliant graphics. People will say "it looks ok" but I swear most the time people forget this isn't a fully blown home console.

Yeah that water section looked great, This could be the game Uncharted 3 should of been!

Uncharted 3 was the game game uncharted 3 should have been.

The only thing i worry about with this vita game is the less focused narrative. It's been brought up in a few reviews already that the writing doesnt have the quality of the proper console games at times, and the voice work isnt as fitting or neuanced. I cannot wait to play it tho despite those issues. The more uncharted the better.

I hate it when devs try to put touch screen or motion control in games that don't call for them. I can understand the stuff on the App Store, those games are easy to pick up and fun as hell in short bursts, but THIS? I hope it's optional because they've already killed Zelda with this gimmicky nonsense

Core gameplay stuff is optional. Gyro Aiming actually helps. Some context sensative actions are required (cutting material with machete, doing a charcoal 'rubbing' of some ancient surface)

I'll be playing with as much of it turned off as possible, the stuff that is required seems like cool additions tho, similar to chinatown wars on the DS and it's hot wiring touch screen minigames etc.

I try to play this series but... They are like the COD games of adventure: script, scrip, script and more script, I can not stand >_<
Commented on 2012-01-03 10:21:39
Yea well thats how an adventure game without the need of freedom works.

Play it. Part 3 is amazing.

easily the best adventures games in recent memory to me....Also, enemies encounters are not much more scripted than most adventure games.... stuff such as Assassins Creed is more free form, but I would hardly call them adventure games

The story itself isn't that great, and in some areas the game is'nt that polished. It still plays great though and is a worthwhile purchase :)

I've downloaded the videos and it shows a huge sized video window, which is clearly not the size of the Vita screen, and thus it looked beyond horrible. Aliasing everywhere. I'd like to see a video directly from the screen, where the video hasn't been resized.

i love uncharted but i cant help but think, this looks shit.
