The Beta supports 3D, which I can’t try out because I don’t have a 3D TV. You can also paly the game split-screen with a friend. They can sign into their own profile and cause mayhem, earning them medals, XP, cash, and treasures form them to use on their own console. There are rewards set to be given when playing so many games so make sure they are using their own profile if they want in!
The main reason I booted up this Beta was to see the graphics. The graphics are roughly the same as Uncharted 2. The lightning is improved and there are many new animation and effects. I loved watching how my character reacted to things, such as a grenade going off right next to me. I was thrown into a breakable table, casing pieces to go everywhere. It was amazing to watch.
Everything you loved about Uncharted 2’s multiplayer is here. There are a few new things for those that noticed. Movies can be made with of your matches, allowing you to edit and upload them using the new Cinema mode. You can even send these videos to friends! There are many new taunts and boosters. The matches also have a new voice female voice, something that calms you down right before a good fight.
My favorite map was the Airport. There are automatic garage doors that open and close based on traffic. I laughed so hard I cried when I saw a player run through the doors, only to get stomped by the automatic door. A classic moment that makes this game so great. However, it did show off the lack of physics in the beta. Nothing moves in the map and the same for the body. It just got shoved into the ground. Items on tables and such don’t move when given a good shooting or a lob of a grenade. It kind of took away from the experience.
