Average User Score: 9.2Jun 18, 2013Woopedy Doo another zombie story that supposedly has depth because of the serious dialogue. If you didn't get enough of this from the WalkingWoopedy Doo another zombie story that supposedly has depth because of the serious dialogue. If you didn't get enough of this from the Walking Dead game, movie, comic book or the book Cell from Stephen King here is yet another helping. Welcome to Uncharted 4, The Walking Undead. This game sports beautiful visuals and settings in which your sole purpose in life is to get from point A to point B. Spoiler alert if you see a ladder or a board you are going to need it.
This is basically Uncharted 3 without the acrobatics and with a different, but equally frustrating, combat system. Luckily many of the encounters can be avoided by using stealth, that is until someone decides to turn around for no apparent reason other than you set the games difficulty to hard, once that happens regardless of what critics have said all the enemies indeed know where you are and come en masse, at which point you can shoot them three times in the head, break your melee weapon on them or smash there head into the wall. And even though they have guns that they shoot at you when you kill them you get no gun or ammo because this is a survival game and in survival games I guess reality be damned.
I guess if I want to have fun dragging around a young girl in a zombie infested landscape I will go back to RE4.… Expand

Average User Score: 5.4Mar 5, 2013Wow, I love MW2 and 3, never played MW1 or BO1, and this game is the suck. The maps never open up, they could have called this CorridorWow, I love MW2 and 3, never played MW1 or BO1, and this game is the suck. The maps never open up, they could have called this Corridor Shooter if the name wasn't already taken. Every map is 3 to 5 paths by 3 crosspaths with a round about in the middle. When it does open up they just pile up stuff to make it tighter and there are lots of dead zones on the maps you could go to and never see another player. If you don't get what I'm trying to convey it is this, there is no flow or joy to be had with these maps, only shooting someone that walks in front of you. MW3 maps seem brilliant in comparison, not counting the DC. Even the least liked map Downturn, would seem like an upgrade to this game. You also get to play every half decent map in BO2 twice in a row since the alternatives are garbage in comparison, so you are nonstop playing standoff, the one with the fountain, the boat and carrier. The weapons and mods are crap, no long range high damage pistols like the magnum, instead you get a short range shotgun pistol!?! The flash and concussion grenades are useless, they feel like the original Call of Duty. No portable radar just some lame radar grenades that don't do squat and last 10 seconds. All the good skills are in the third skill slot, so you have to waste your perk on it to have the necessary skills to dominate. The target finder ruins your skills in other games. The killstreaks are impossible to use unless you are amazing, even to use something like a UAV. It is hard to have a purpose in the game such as Assault, Recon, Defense, Sniper etc... Everybody is just a run and gunner.
The Zombie game is incredibly stupid, this is a full game yet feels like a first person top down gun game you would download on your phone, minus the fun. The single player game is what all these games are 2 good moments surrounded by linear combat.
All in all a complete disappointment for a modern FPS.… Expand

The problem I have with the game is that you see a camp of baddies, you shoot one and they all go nuts, you kill them, you move forward and more baddies spawn, repeat a thousand times more add some boss battles and you got the whole game. But its still enjoyable, just as Skyrim was good for at least 50 hours before you realized that you are just stuck in a loop, and by then you got your moneys worth unlike most games released.… Expand

Average User Score: 7.5Jan 12, 2013This is one of the worst stories in gaming history. It would have been better if Hitman was a kid and he had to get the 6 stones of fateThis is one of the worst stories in gaming history. It would have been better if Hitman was a kid and he had to get the 6 stones of fate because every 300 years the dragon Whogivsafuk returns. And as other reviews mentioned the detect system is insane, do cops know what every cop on the force looks like, I THINK NOT!
That being said I still enjoyed this game immensly. I actually got my 60 bucks worth out of it. Sure it isn't as open as Blood Money, but then again Blood Money was insanely difficult and the controls have been much improved. I do miss the headlines about the mass murderer or the ghost. The multiplayer aspect of this game is what makes this game gold. I cannot think of another multiplayer game that has held my interest as much as this that wasn't either an fps or on the SNES. They just need to implement an algorithm so instead of just playing the newest or most liked hits you could play the most popular, which would be likes divided by the length of time posted.… Expand

This alone should scare you off, but there is more.
I bought this game for two reasons
Multiplayer with map editor. Are you ready for this? You cannot take your created maps and make a lobby with multiple maps. Even if you make a lobby with your one map, nobody will show up. You can leave it sit there for ten minutes and your name will be the only one. What is the point of making a map no one will ever play, including yourself. They also have some nazi register bullcrap to make sure everyone pays for it. Now ask yourself why less than 1000 people are playing the multiplayer at any given time, I'll tell you why, because it is unpolished, controls are wonky and the maps created by people who are paid to design maps are awful.
The other reason I bought it was because I read it has survival aspects, being mgs3 was one of my favorite games I figured hell yeah. Well got some bad news there as well. You don't kill things for meat, you kill things for skin to make stupid **** so you can actually carry enough ammo to take out a group of three people. And of course you need specific animal skin for specific items. You also get to pick some herbs, and the map shows you exactly where they are, along with all the "hidden" relics, of course you could just not unlock the radio tower that opens the map but then you would not know where the bad guys bases were. What do you get to do with these herbs? If you guessed make potions that you inject with a syringe you are right, which means you are as stupid as the game creators. Congrats! Just don't accidently pull out your C4 everytime you try to use anything like I do.
Other problems, limited loot and yet there is no chest in the safe house! Saving every minute so that you don't lose all the **** you crafted, because god knows upgrades don't warrant an autosave. Cliche acting that is neither so bad its good, or good. Driving that makes Grand Theft Auto 4 look like Burnout, with of course get from A to B in the allotted time or kids will die without their meds. Little do they know getting anywhere in the game on the ATV is so great a challenge the time limit was completely unnecessary. This game as many of late has the 30 minute intro that is set in stone so don't go outside the mission zone. Did I mention a camera that as far as I can tell doesn't take pictures nor dispense candy.
Basically this is another Mercenaries 2 game that you will get bored with first day and never play again. Warning this game has RPG elements which forces you to play the game to gain xp so that you can actually play the game. Imagine if Hitman had to learn how to drag a body.… Expand
