My impressions:

Anyone who knows me, knows that I was highly pessimistic about this MP, but I MUST admit that, with time, I am starting to really enjoy and appreciate it!

Some thoughts: I LOVE that I am pleasantly surprised at how balanced everything is! Looking at the trailer, I genuinely thought that it would be way worse than UC3. To my surprise, nothing seems unbalanced, and the mysticals and sidekicks are actually fun and provide a level of strategy, instead of cheap BS. Another thing is the fact that blindfire and melee are both NERFED the **** down (), which makes me extremely happy. No longer do we have unskilled noobs being cheap and trying to get kills with steelfisting. Consequently, shotguns are also no longer guaranteed cheap kills. The aim controls feel tight and responsive, the framerate is godsent, the animations are great, the game is well-balanced. Once again, I am very surprised at how I'm actually enjoying this. It could've been totally different, though, had it not been so balanced.

But still, I really miss the verticality that both UC2 and 3 offered. I feel like that has been toned down a lot. Just compare the two maps with highrise/sanctuary, etc. UC4 in general has a completely different ''feel'' to it (it feels chaotic/cartoony/arcade-y/Team Fortress-y). That ''Uncharted flavour'' is definitely gone. Those who have played lots of UC2 MP will know what I mean.

With that being said, the more I played it, the more I got used to it. Naughty Dog has outdone themselves when it comes to balancing, which is the biggest surprise here! Now let's see what the full game offers. I hope it will still stay this balanced and fun to play (so no cheap BS ala UC3). So far it's very promising. It caters to both hardcore competitive players and newcomers/casuals, while still being fun to play for both parties without any unbalances. I can definitely see myself, with time, ''letting go'' of UC2. I am very surprised and happy, because we finally have a balanced and fun MP! I'm praying to Jesus that ND won't **** up this great level of balance.

But please, for the love of God, remove the ''down state'' entirely!

I haven't played the MP, in what way have the controls changed, if it's in a way that would be applied to SP?

Glad to hear you're surprised and able to enjoy it. Based on previous posts of yours it seems we feel the same way about Uncharted 2's multiplayer so I trust your opinion.

Getting used to the grapple being L1, and grenade/bomb being R1. It's been so long I can't actually remember how to throw a grenade in UC3 But I used to use L1 and R1 for aiming and shooting on ps3 controller.

Taunt is now the up direction. Reload is now triangle. Think that's it.

Not to mention instead of reloading, I usually throw a grenade at my self XD, so use to the Remaster controls



This was my 1st ever match on the multiplayer

The newest trailer was kind of odd to me because it didn't seem to have the same polish as all the other cutscenes that we have seen so far. Mostly just the lipsync seems to off slightly. In the previous scenes that were shown E3 the whole facial capture was heaps better, that what this teaser showed.

Interesting, I hope it's just not polished. =/

Everything else seemed fine, i mean it was just a teaser.

What I did like was that the villain or at least one of the antagonists was an ethnic woman, who actually seems like she can do some kick-***ery. Marlowe never seemed to be as threatening as she was supposed to be mostly because we never saw her that much. Hopefully, this woman is actually threatening, at least we know she can throw a nice kick.

I think that it leads to a brawl ingame, the way that the scene ends as an over the shoulder camera just makes it seem that way.

But I'm sure it'll be something like Lara's hair in the first trailer we saw where it floated around and acted against gravity.
It'll be something fixed I'm sure.
