I cant tell you how many times I found myself hysterical from cutscenes such as the one where Drake parashutes off the airplane. Its was like something I could see myself doing.
i have to agree with you here.

the only thing i felt Uncharted lacked was really hard and in-depth puzzles. all the puzzles were more like...slight inconveniences.

otherwise i found it to be one of the most intruiging and immersive gaming experiences i have had in a long time. and the dialogue i felt suited very well.

if Drake looks like anyone, i'd say Jack Carver from Far Cry, slight resemblance there.

The plants don't look real though... they look like plastic... and the decals just "stick" out of the ground when you look closely. The graphics are nowhere near as close to Crysis from what I can tell looking through a few a screenshots.

I like the "lots of plantae" aspect, but the game isn't *that* graphically appealing. It reminds me of the map cs_jungle in CSS - it's fun, with loads of jungle plants, etc. - but I would never compare it to the beast that is Crysis.

fair enough it doesnt EXACTLY compare to Crysis..

but you seem to be basing your opinion off screenshots?

trust me, when you see the game in action, you will understand. its graphics are amazing, in some areas, it look as good as Crysis, in terms of quality. not a direct match to Crysis no.

uncharted was designed as a semi-realistic action adventure game. the characters and surroundings are designed with an artistic aspect in mind. the story unfolds around that mindset. the 'plastic' plants are what the designer wanted them to look like. dont expect it to be a national geographic game. its a fictional aventure game with great gameplay and a great artistic design with brilliant graphics. comparing it to something else doesnt work. its a mix of alot of ideas brought together and it all works really well.

p.s if you play this on a HDTV configured properly. it will blow your mind.
