I am on Chapter 24 of Uncharted 2.  I have to say it's a VERY beautiful game.  However I didn't like the combat at all in Uncharted 1 and they seemed to have taken the combat and ramped it up 2 fold from Uncharted 1.  I am getting really tired of open door, kill 50 bad guys, move to new place, rinse and repeat.  Especially in the Monastery.

Anyway, am thinking I am going to trade in my PS3 tomorrow at Gamestop and wanted to get Uncharted 2 and 3 played before I traded it in.  Doesn't look like I am going to get to 3.  My hands are completely tingley right now from playing with that damn Dualshock all day yesterday and today.

If 3 is anything like 2 I am not worried about missing it.  It's brand new still sealed, guess I will try to sell it.

This was another reason why the series is getting stale IMO.

Like I've stated in other threads, the damn story is just about the same each time too.

I beat 3 in about 8 hours I think. Or close to it. Played the hell out of it, I got into it and couldn't stop going. 3 is a lot like 2. I wouldn't really be able to pick between the 2, they're both on about the same level of awesome for me. I'd say try to finish 3 first.

I hated the game play in Uncharted 1, but didn't mind it in Uncharted 2. I enjoyed the second one a lot actually. I haven't gotten the third one yet, I'm not sure why.

I hated 1, largely for its endless, monotonous gunplay, but I loved 2.

I found it monotonous in 1 and even more monotonous in 2.

Just finished 2 all the way.  Didn't like the game all that much other than the graphics.  The storyline was terrible and way too much gunplay.

Can barely feel my fingers right now, they are all tingly like when a limb goes asleep.  That's how my fingers feel right now.  All my knuckle joints on both hands are obviously swollen too.

I think 2 is one of the best games this gen. I got platinum trophy for it 3 days before it was officially released. (got it 10 days early due to an event) but 3 I hated so much i didnt even finish it

Sucks about your hands bro. I loved all three games but 2 is the best game ever created in my opinion. I've played it over a dozen times already.

Doctor can't do anything about it without surgery.  Probably about 10K to have both hands fixed.

I was going to trade in my Mom's Wii, my 360 and PS3 and get about $400 in trade and get the Star Wars 360.

But Gamestop closed at 6pm and my mom didn't fucking give me permission to trade in her Wii till 6:15pm.  So fucking pissed right now.

Started Uncharted 3 today and am on Chapter 10 or so now and am enjoying it far more than U2 so far.

So I guess I am keeping my PS3 unless there is another really good trade in deal soon.  At least this will give me a chance to finish U3 and finish Shadow's of the Colossus.

Wow! That really blows man. Sorry to hear about that. Hope you can remedy it somehow, it would suck not just for your gaming life but life in general.

I loved the hell out of all of the Uncharted games I've played (U1, U2, and U:GA). However, it's getting to the point where the fighting feels very artificial and way too forced.

I'm surprised you think the combat was ramped up in monotony because the common theme from most people, including me, is that they fixed that tremendously from 1.

I adored 2 and I really loved 3.  The set pieces are just spectacular in those games.

All three are incredible games to me, 2 is probably my favorite all around.

Sorry, I thought the combat was just like 1 and 10x more of it to the point it was literally enter room, kill 50 bad guys go to new room kill 50 bad guys ad-naseum.

Well they did make sure to market this as a third person shooter. They never intended it to be some adventure game. I loved the set pieces and one of my favorites that broke up the pace was when...

The thing is... there are less enemies.  There just are.  It's not that you don't like the game that's weird, but the problem you're describing is an Uncharted 1 problem, and I can't think of one person who played or reviewed the game that said there were more enemies.  One of the big positives about the game when it was released was the fact that it fixed that problem from Uncharted 1.

uncharted 2 did have a lot of you enter an area and there are a bunch of enemies in that area to clear out. but they felt more like puzzles. for example there is this 1 area I remember, when i did it on hard i went in tried to stealth kill as many as i could went around 1 edge took out some of them, but their were a bunch of heavies in the middle that i couldnt so it turned into a gun fight. and after the fight i found several RPGs hidden in the area. next time i do it on crushing and i get to that area, I go and collect all the rocket ammo, and stealth kill all the normal enemies, then I use up all the rockets on the heavies and take em out before they really do anything to me. because of stuff like this throughout the game I was able to go from playing on hard and it taking me about 8 hours, to playing on crushing and it taking me less then 5 despite the increase in difficulty. (and those were my 2nd and 3rd playthroughs, so it wasnt a matter of 1st time figuring stuff out that caused the 3 hours faster play time)

Just finished Uncharted 3, thought it was a ton better than U2 but I am still going to trade in all 3 games and get a PSN+ sub instead.
