Not that many people have the option to buy both Gears of War 3 and Uncharted 3, thanks to GoW 3 being an exclusive for Xbox 360 and U3 only for the PS3. If you’re like most people and are tied to just one games console, then it’s not that hard of a choice as both games are going to be extremely good and worth buying.
Some people still want to compare the stories and graphics of Gears of War 3 (a release date of September 20), and Uncharted 3 (release of November 2). Without getting into the graphics, let’s look at the stories for both of these franchises.
One author on Velocity Gamer feels that GoW has a lot better story lines, and explains, in their blog post here, that the shooting mechanics are better in Gears while the graphics are better in Uncharted, but how did they get to the story conclusion?
They found that the games are pretty even when it comes to acting, even though Gears has a lot of cursing, which is seen as justified when you’re battling a monstrous enemy. We’ll have to agree that “less” can be a lot more, and that the Gears of War 3 trailer said more in the quiet moments like when Dom lays back with his eyes closed ready to give up, and then Marcus saves him as if to say get up and fight, all without a word being said. If the full game continues with this approach it will mean a lot with how the feelings of the game are passed on. Most players will already prefer the stories of their favorite game, and as such will have a favorite in Gears of War or Uncharted.
Other opinions we’ve heard include feelings that Uncharted 3 mainly has just graphics going for it, and the franchise is one of the most overrated. Which game do you think will have the better story, Gears of War 3 or Uncharted 3?
