I loved Assassin's Creed II.  A lot.  And I've never played Uncharted 2, but damn, really?  Most disappointing?  Hmm...

Posted by CowMuffins

I think Uncharted 2 is one of the most progressive games of this generation. I don't see how it isn't anyone's GOTY, unless of course you havn't played it.

Posted by Brendan

Because this question will be asked a million times anyway, I might as well start it.  What about UC 2 sucked?

How was Uncharted 2 disappointing?

  What's so progressive about it?
Posted by zombie2011

Agree, I really liked Uncharted 2 it wasn't a disappointment for me but i don't think it should be the front runner for all the GOTY awards like it is. 
Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2 are great examples that show how people forgive average gameplay as long as the game looks pretty.

The animation and narrative give an unrivaled cinematic feel to the entire thing. Also, there are no load times throughout the entire single player, giving the player a seamless adventure that provides great action all the way to the end.

Going to copy + paste my thoughts on Uncharted 2 from my What'cha Been Doing blog. 
 
"  Uncharted 2 had an ass face of hype, not shockingly of course. Most of the hype has probably diminished my thoughts on the game as I went into it expecting way too much. It's not that I didn't like the game and that I'm saying it's a poor game, it's that there was way too many frustrating points in the game and some annoying elements that I could see people getting over, but I just couldn't. One being the platforming. It was very beautiful, yes, but it kind of feels like the game cheats itself as it gives you certain spots where you can jump extremely far and some spots where you can't. This ends with you having absolutely no idea of how far you can jump and can't jump which means you're gonna be seeing that death screen a lot, not really realizing that you can't make that jump although you made a jump much wider earlier. The other main complaint is the combat. Not the combat in general but some of the things that happen during the combat. It's pretty well known Uncharted 1's enemies were damn bullet sponges and according to many people, Uncharted 2 had changed that. While the normal enemies do go down A LOT faster, there is plenty of enemies that are still just as dumb as the one in the previous game. They explain it by saying they have "heavy armor", I find that too be complete bullshit. So if they said that every enemy in Uncharted 1 had padding on them, it would immediately be better? No. Not at all. It would be the same complaints and I feel many people are overlooking the sheer shittiness of these enemies. Also, developers need to learn, guys that are very heavy armored and kill you in one shot ARE NOT FUCKING GOOD.

While all that is disappointing, Uncharted 2 definitely has it's high points. The sheer cinematic experience and the set pieces are just plain beautiful. I love them. Also the story, it was the thing that kept me chugging along until I finally quit at around chapter 22. As it seems to be only me and a few other people that are disappointed by Uncharted, I have no problem telling you to rent it and if you like it, buy it." 
 
Bah humbug.

Thats all just one thing a cinematic feel. Many games have had a really cinematic feel just like Uncharted 2 but they don't look as good because they were released years earlier.  
 
The shooting in Uncharted 2 was not that much fun there were basically 4 weapons in the game. The story was decent at best, the best part of Uncharted 2 was the platforming which AC2 does better.

@TheGamerGeek: Alright, I gotcha.

@TheGamerGeek: So it's a terrible game because you died, and you sometimes jumped a little further than normal...right.

Killzone 2 really pushed objective based games to the limit and utilized teamwork, it also created an amazing new feature of switching game modes in the middle of one game. 
 
Uh huh...average. Riiiight.

The best part about shooters are the weapons Uncharted's are just boring as hell. The shooting in the game was not good at all. I, like most people i know killed most the enemies by running up to them and meleeing them, just because it so much quicker and easier than using a weapon.

It's really cool to hate popular things.
I can see how certain aspects of Uncharted 2 would be frustrating, but I wouldn't call it disappointment of the year. That award goes to Scribblenauts for me.
Also, statements like Fucking suck it are blatant flame bait. 
If some one makes a post about their disappointment with a game that's fine, but when you post things like that you might as well slap a sign on your back that says pick a fight with me.

Posted by MushroomSamba

UC2 was pretty good. I dunno if I'd make it GOTY either. To me, there really isn't much separating the top tier games this year...there isn't that one title that clearly stands out above the rest. I'd be splittin' hairs picking between UC2, AC2, Borderlands, Arkham Asylum, Red Faction: Guerrilla, Demon's Souls, SFIV, etc. The only game that really disappointed me this year was Killzone 2. Never got around to playing MW2 yet, but I'm sure that'll be worth putting in the conversation too.

So are you just trolling? I don't understand. 
Joke thread ftw.

Posted by Wipeout

I'll just say that I feel the same way the OP does except about Modern Warfare 2.  That game was pretty lame except for maybe 2 parts, was unnecessarily annoying (shantytown), and marks the fourth time I've spent 4 hours in an infinite ward game running away from grenades.  And the multiplayer is just Counterstrike again.  People love it but I think they just had the wool pulled over their eyes.
 
I loved Uncharted 2 though.  One of my favourites.  The set pieces were amazing - having a gunfight inside a hotel thats toppling over into another building?  Doing a John McClane jump through the window into the other building while the two crash into each other?  AWESOME!

But because you couldn't judge jumps and because of the armored type of enemies (which you can obviously tell apart from normal enemies) it is the most disappointing game this year.  
Can record and upload which jump you made earlier which was further than the one you just attempted.  
 
Edit: In fact the game is that good, that I don't actually believe you have played it. Take a picture of your game.

If you played on the easiest difficulty maybe but you could finish gears on casual by chainsawing most enemies, COD by knifing.

Now THIS I would like to see footage of.  Apparently you can't aim the guns, an enemy at distance should be shot and if you tried to instead tried to run at them you would be killed.  It's that simple.

GTFO.
 
This is clearly a thinly veiled attempt to bash Uncharted 2. Why else would you mention it in the title? This is about GOTY, right? And why would you tell people to fucking suck it? Had you just listed Uncharted 2 as your most disappointing game, nobody would've gave a shit.
Posted by zombie2011
@Webby: @Stephen_Von_Cloud:  I didn't say every enemy, of course if he is shooting me from far away i will use a gun. My strategy for the entire game was walk in a situation take as many people as i can with stealth kills then start shooting then, when there are 3 or 4 left i would just run up and melee one after the other letting my health regenerate if i needed it to. Also i played on regular difficulty.

It's clear from you list that your a big Ac2 fan. WHile it is a good game there many flaws with it that I won't get into it right now. The beautiful thing about video games that there are so many of them that if you don't like one then you can try another one. You think Uncharted 2 is a disappointment? Fine by me. I think Uncharted 2 is an exceptional game and I feel kinda sorry for you that you didn't enjoy it at all. The funny thing is that the problems you had with uncharted 2 is are the same problems I have with AC2.  
  
btw, you forgot one category you can put AC2 in.

You're only complaints were that you sucked at jumping and you thought enemies with armor should have been able to die quicker.
