Uncharted 3 Character Models Were Heavily Downgraded in the MP

Posted By | On 17th, Nov. 2011 Under News | Follow This Author @KartikMdgl


It looks like Naughty Dog has downgraded the engine in Uncharted 3 because of 3D? Or whatever it is. We have definite proof that the character models were downgraded from Uncharted 2. One user in the Naughty Dog forums has posted a bunch of screenshots that show the downgrade in all its glory.

Even in the campaign you can see a lot of jaggies because they removed the 2x MSAA and went for a custom post-processing Anti Aliasing solution. It is really disappointing but you can check it out below.

This is what the user had to say.

I cannot believe how bad Uncharted 3 multiplayer looks compared to Uncharted 2. Chloe doesn’t even look like herself. Take a look at her hair, her eyes, her jagged chin, and the extremely low res shirt and harness. Also, look at Elena’s horrible hair quality and jagged shadows. What is the most surprising is Zoran’s glove texture

 It looks like it was designed for the Nintendo 64. Ive seen higher detailed textures in Goldeneye 64. The disparity between the character model detail and the weapons is just night and day. The following pictures compare Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 multiplayer side by side.

Uncharted 2 screenshots are on the left and Uncharted 3 screenshots are on the right. I am most upset by the way they destroyed Chloe. I also cant believe that they changed the dynamic nature of the characters’ eyes. If anyone from Naughty Dog reads this, I would really like an explanation as to why the characters look like they were designed to run on a Playstation 2. Why couldn’t they just pull the same models from Uncharted 2? 

So there you go. Check them out below.

    It may look bad, but think of this, it took this article for me to even notice. This is a non-issue if you ask me.

  • it IS multiplayer, every game downgrades their graphics. It looks like Elena has chewing tobacco in her bottom lip.

    This whole article is NOT TRUE! If you will notice EVERY pic that is shown here is from Uncharted 2. Furthermore Zoran Lazarević is not even in Uncharted 3, he’s ONLY is Uncharted 2 and dies at the end. WTF! This article is nothing more then trash, trying to get hits with a completely fabricated story and pics. Anyone who has played Uncharted 2 or 3 would know right away that these are all pics from the Uncharted 2, and that the bad looking pics are fakes. I can’t understand why this moron would try to making a AAA game look bad when it’s one of the greatest games this gen. Fail bro! This moron who wrote this is pathetic and didn’t even research the game obviously.

    • these all do look very bad. die hard uncharted fan they brought in all this new cool stuff but took out the character multiplayer had. U2 they all had actual independent skins with their own way of movement and had much more detail. there actually is no difference in the U3 mp characters their just the same model re skinned. they all have the EXACT same characteristics. chloe and elena are the worst though. and buddy you can play as lazarevic in multiplayer in U3

      On the left it’s Uncharted 2 and on the right Uncharted 3. So which one is the downgrade?

  • I was the person who put up the original post on the Naughty Dog Forums. These are MULTIPLAYER screenshots. Not campaign screenshots. And yes all of these characters are available in Uncharted 3 Multiplayer. Nepal Chloe is available as DLC. The same is True with Zoran. The photos on the left were from Uncharted 2 multiplayer. The photos on the right are from Uncharted 3 multiplayer. Apparently you didn’t do your research… Sorry to say, but those are the facts and that is actually how Uncharted 3 multiplayer looks. If you don’t believe me, go ahead and take your own screenshots of Uncharted 3 multiplayer. You will get the same results. Have a nice day. And next time, do a little research before you insult people you don’t even know. You ended up making yourself a target for much laughter.

  • *grabs bucket* honestly, uncharted 3 mp looks horrible. I don’t care about the 12 minute streaming animations…if it makes the game look bad I don’t want it.

  • Paul W

    Uncharted 3 is more about ‘messy’ action and collectables rather than carefully plotted killing. UC3 multiplayer is more focussed on the fun. UC2 is for the purists but UC3 is still more fun despite some graphical downgrades.

    These pics are BS. Must have been made by an angry PC gamer.
