3D Realms is gone and all that remains are the shifting, wispy hopes that Duke Nukem Forever will somehow find a new home with a new studio. But who says ex-Realms members aren't still checking out the competition?
Former Forever director George Broussard has been talking about Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves , and his comments are those of a man who is completely blown away by a game experience. He has been gushing about the Game of the Year candidate over at the ShackNews forums , and Broussard says the game is "epic bad-assery" and that everyone really should "believe the hype." But at the same time, because the production is so unbelievably accomplished and polished, Broussard adds that "it's not even fair" and because Uncharted 2 is really that good, he finds the entire thing pretty "intimidating." Here are a few more of his awestruck statements:
"It's rare that I like games this much. There's virtually no fail in them. Very polished and well done on every level. These are master works, up there with the tops games being made. You may as well be playing great Indiana Jones movies.
Game of the year. Can't see anything else besting it, even the mighty Modern Warfare 2. We shall see. That's the battle, imo, for Game of the Year. I can't take any more. The game will set bars so high that every action game will be a disappointment to play. Much like Half-Life did."
Then Broussard finished it and simply said it's one of the "most amazing games" he has ever played and what the Naughty Dog team achieved is just "unbelievable." Then- "It's seriously hard to think about playing another game after this. It'd be like watching some random movie after just having seen Star Wars." Hey, we hear ya man; we kinda feel the exact same way. I'll be constructing an editorial of my own towards the end of the week, and there will be some compliments in there, too. 😉
