Uncharted Review (IGN).

knowing how IGN is im very surprised they gave it such a good score.

9.5 Presentation
The whole thing has the polish of a major motion picture and goes out of its way to immerse you in the experience with amazing cutscenes, music and more.
9.0 Graphics
There's no doubt the game looks great and that the use of in-game assets for the movies is seamless transition, but there's still a fair amount of screen tearing and texture pop in.
9.5 Sound
From the low instrumental piece accompanying the opening screen to the sweeping score that runs throughout the whole game, this is what videogame music should be.
9.0 Gameplay
This game is flat-out fun to play. Leaping from ledges is awesome, shootouts are fun, and the occasional vehicle section is a nice change of pace. Still, the pirate battles can be a bit much.
8.5 Lasting Appeal
The game is short, but the medals, rewards and bonuses should be enough to bring you back at least once.
9.1
Outstanding OVERALL
(out of 10 / not an average)

texture pop up? tearing? HAHAHAHHAHAH what the heck are they watching, the demo had no such things as texture pop up or tearing, oh IGN oh IGN.. when are you going to get rid of your staff..

This game is going to kick ass but I read somewhere that its getting mixed reviews. I think this will be a rent and if its as good as I am hoping than I will buy it...

The demo was amazing but way to short to really get a good feel for the game and with it being as short as 10 hours or less its hard to shell out $60. I mean I have already bought 3 new games this week..

EGM 8.5

if any game has gotten reviews lately its been Assassins Creed, ranging from the 7's to the 9's across the board. some review sites are saying the PS3 version suffers from framerate issues while other sites are saying the PS3 version has solid framerate issues.. you pick.

It seems as if the whole review they are saying good but not great on certain features and they kinda make it seem that it has not lived up to the hype and being a shorter game and only a few unlockables it has little replay value and so on. But at the end they say a must have for a PS3 owner, Is that because there is not a whole lot else? Are they trying not to piss anyone off, I dont get these reviews lately its like they are scared to say a game is just not up to snuff. I know there are plenty of great games out right now but it seems every game is like a 9+ even when they are trash it during the review..

I still think I will pick it up regardless, Heavenly Sword needs a friend on my shelf..

maybe it's one of those games that have great potential but doesnt have that it factore which pulls you into the game. i felt the same way about heavenly sword (i know a bunch of you won't agree with me, im just saying that was me and not a general consensus).

i may have to pick up this game and finaly get me ps3 some use. then i can dust it off because i refuse to play with a dusty console.

edit: maybe it does immerse you. sounds like a fun game but im holding off for a few because i got way to many games and only so much time to play them.

I am getting sick of IGN pissing and moaning about pithy visual issues like texture pop-in or slight framerate hitches. This game looks sweet

thats IGN for ya LoL.. they pick at the smallest things no matter what, but they do say that the "tearing" and "texture pop up" does not effect the game so at least thats a good thing i guess lol. . im getting this game no matter what anyway , its a must have for my ps3 collection. i forgot i got a $25 giftcard for walmart too! woohoo
