Better than most any action movie sequence EVER.
This post is a bit delayed, but I felt I had to post it regardless. One of the best things shown at this year’s E3… scratch that… THE Best thing shown at E3 2015 for me was the demo for Naughty Dog’s utterly amazing demo for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. It was 7 and a half minutes of unrelenting, jaw-dropping action movie awesomeness- easily one of the most impressive cinematic sequences you’ll see in a game yet, or even in any action blockbuster film. The graphics were amazing, the detail unheard of. As I watched Nathan Drake go through a breakneck running and driving battle against an army of thugs, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, up to the sudden, abrupt, cliffhanging ending.
This was what we all saw during E3. Some time after though, it was revealed that what we saw was only HALF of the freakin’ demo.
The Uncharted demo’s action continues for about another 7 minutes or so, seeing the whole chase sequence/battle to its explosive, rip-roaring conclusion… and to a little epilogue which ironically leaves Nathan in even greater peril (Heh).
This just may be Naughty Dog’s Opus, and perhaps the crown jewel in the PS4 Library. I must admit, I’ve never really been an Uncharted fan, but I just may become one seeing this trailer. This game is now SOLD, a year before launch. I want this game. I need this game. For now though, we have this divine trailer/demo to tide us over. WOW. Just. WOW.
