Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
by Gangrane - November 12th, 2007
Firstly I'd like to say thanks to Naughty Dog for opening the demo to the EU audience, and fixing that problem within a day, big respect to them.Now onto the demo.A few people have been saying that Uncharted look like a Game Of The Year contender, while I thought the game looked good, gameplay and visually speaking, I wasn't sure... until I play this demo.Now the demo is short but not Heavenly Sword short, thank god, but I really would of liked to play more of it.The animations are crazy, I wish to be a Animator when I'm older and so I was mostly watching the animation of Drake and the enemies and my lord it's like you never see the same animation twice, I played through the demo twice in a row and I'm pretty sure I didn't see the same thing.The way that Drake moves is realistic but also quite fast and fluid, it's just fun watching the guy move and then whipping out a shotgun, shooting a guy and watching him twirl in the air.The Voice over of the two main characters are great, there's just no way to describe it, it just all feels very natural and not forced.The demo had a great introduction, all this is the fourth mission within the game, I loved the opening I was actually Laughing out loud for the first time to a game. I was shocked. The joke that did it was before Drake jumped from the Plane "Oh CRAP... 12345" it was just soo funny and unexpected it even made my brother laugh.Also I noticed by the end of the game my face hurt and that was from smiling. I smiled all the way through the demo.So just to say this is the BEST damn Demo I've ever played and I'm a Hardcore MGS fan I played MGS3, not 4 yet, and thought nothing could top that well I was wrong.
Bravo to Naughty Dog.
