Indeed. And for that level of graphics it is so much less demanding it terms of hardware than any triple A game. Whatever they did with the engine it's impressive.

Let's remember how Uncharted 1's Drake looked like:

Man, 7 years really made a difference in the gaming world.

I still remember when I first played Drake's Fortune and I was 'wooooow so pretty'.

People bitching about the "downgrade" should take a look at that gif.

Yeaaah, the lightning is different, Nate is not wet (water reflection helps to create the illusion of better graphics) and the hair is missing the blur in the trailer. Other than that, his face is the same. The detail is truly amazing.

Haha and to think people are saying TR2013 looked better...sigh...

Fan boy alert



P.S People are talking about animations. Given the track record, ND are MUCH more competent with their animations than Crystal are. Just look at the unfinished jerky mess of animations that was Underworld....and they actually mo-capped those... eek...

I agree with you but let's not turn this thread into another TR Vs. UC thread, we have too many of them already.

You neglect to mention to slow, steady, gradual increase of quality over the years. Has there been a noticeable jump in quality from UC1 to UC4? Of course.

When I'm constantly being thrown these visually stunning images, I'm not going to sit there and get on the graphics train because lolMovingChestHair. It was said before, pretty has become standard and they're going to need to do a lot more to impress me, personally, than bits of hair that move when I so happen to get close enough to Nathan to see it.

I honestly care more about Uncharted 4 will push the action adventure genre forward because, honestly, the whole cinematic thing is about as stale as pretty games, and while I liked what I saw from UC4, gameplay wise, let's be honest, it's not exactly pushing the envelope in terms of action/adventure games. However, it's very well done, so I'll them slide.
