I am looking to pick up a new game before I start school again. Both of these games interest me and the demos have kept me entertained. They are both at my local disc replay. Should I pick up infamous ($42) or Uncharted ($32)? Which one will provide more bang for my buck?

They are both great games but uncharted has better graphics infamous has more replay value and the graphics are good to..

infamous

#4 Posted by Prince-Noctis (1271 posts) -

Personally i'd go for neither, but if you must get one get inFAMOUS, much more replay value.

#5 Posted by HeavenlyWinds (37 posts) -

I personally liked inFamous more. You should get both.

infamous
#7 Posted by blank33 (1896 posts) -

Both are great, but I would get Uncharted first. inFamous is great to play through twice as the hero and villain, but loses replay value after that. Uncharted is short, but I've played it about 10 times and still love it. Considering Uncharted 2 is coming soon, it's worth playing to be familiar with the game.

Uncharted, liked it alot more.

#9 Posted by MrGanny (2911 posts) -

This is a hard one. inFamous was such a great game, I liked every second of it. Uncharted is in my top list of games. I like it that much, that I replayed the game like 15 times and I still don't get bored of it. Hope you take the right decision. ;)

You are comparing 2 of my favourite games, so this is really hard. If you prefer superhero free roam games get inFamous. If you prefer shooters get Uncharted. As for right now I would probally go with inFamous since it will last longer. But in the long run get BOTH.

#13 Posted by caseystryker (5405 posts) -

I'd say get Uncharted. Don't ge me wrong, inFamous is a great game, but it's just not a whole lot of fun to play through multiple times. I've played through Uncharted probably 6 or 7 times and loved every moment of it. It's like watching a great Indiana Jones movie. Not to mention, as somebody mentioned before, Uncharted 2 is coming out in a month or two so now would be a great time to expeience what the first one has to offer.

#14 Posted by Jakesta7 (2417 posts) -

I say both because those r my 2nd and 3rd favorite games.

#15 Posted by verbalfilth (4578 posts) -
get both..they're both great games..but if I had to choose I'd say infamous for its length if not anything else.
#16 Posted by Vaultn00b (281 posts) -

Which demo did you like the most?

I'd go for InFamous if I were you because it's longer and I didn't like Uncharted that much.

#17 Posted by navstar29 (4036 posts) -
Uncharted > inFamous

inFamous = amazing

Yes !

#19 Posted by madam-moutrash (152 posts) -

uncharted is good but infamous beats the **** out of it

#20 Posted by 3rdbass (3292 posts) -

Uncharted is a whole lot better game. Infamous is doesn't have as good of a story and the gameplay is so repetitive. You wouldn't really missing much not gettting infamous. Uncharted would be mine choice and a great way to get into Uncharted 2 in October. Infamous is just a very average game for the most part that gets boring really fast. Not as bad though as AC.

#21 Posted by Nike_Air (18300 posts) -

I'd rent Uncharted to get ready for the sequel (game is about 8 hours) , and I'd buy inFAMOUS. After you milk Infamous for all its worth ..... sell it and put the money towards Uncharted 2. That's going to be a real keeper.

#22 Posted by zeal311 (153 posts) -

Damn this looks pretty even so far. I have to say I enjoyed the infamous demo more but can see the gameplay getting repetitive. Uncharted sounds like it has a great story but that's pretty difficult to pick up from jsut the demo. I'm sure I will eventually end up getting both. Which one should I get first though?

Damn I should really beat Eternal Sonata before I pick up another game. Does ES get any better? I am about 2-3 hours in and am struggling to keep playing...

#23 Posted by ASLplease (177 posts) -
Lets just say you will love either game.

Well inFamous gets repetitive but the playthrough lasts longer while Uncharted isn't as repetitve but the playthrough is ALOT shorter.
#25 Posted by Rakuho (7008 posts) -

even though uncharted is my favorite SCE published title this gen, Infamous will last you much longer... and it's a pretty damn good game to boot ;)...

but don't pass up either of these titles, so consider renting uncharted if you do decide on infamous; it wont take you long to beat it but you'll (hopefully) have a blast.

#26 Posted by AtticusFinch88 (1388 posts) -

They're both great games, and as I'd recommend them to anyone who owns a PS3.I'd go with Uncharted. Infamous warrants 2 plays if you want to see both endings or all the trophies, but after that it's pretty boring IMO.

Uncharted to me is one of those games that is still loads of fun the 2nd and 3rd time around. I'll probably play it again before Uncharted 2 is released.

Both of the games have demo's you should check out and see if that helps you decide. If all else fails just buy one now and the other later on when you have the money.

#27 Posted by Brainhunter (2201 posts) -
I enjoyed Uncharted a lot more than Infamous. In fact, after having beaten Infamous as both a Hero and Villain, I see no point in returning to play the game. To me, it doesn't have much replayability. I would recommend you wait out for Uncharted 2 though, as it seems to be a superior sequel to the original, and a superior game to Infamous, period.
#28 Posted by Sokol4ever (6304 posts) -

Both.

Save up for one and buy another one when you can. Both games are phenomenal and worth being in PS3 collection.

I like Uncharted a little bit more. ;)

#29 Posted by Dante_May_Die (1505 posts) -

its like InFAMOUS>Uncharted>InFamous>Uncharted

both are equally great games in my opinion...if i must choose one then definetly inFamous :)

#30 Posted by RevealingEdge (120 posts) -
get infamous.uncharted may be good (but old),but now i think its not worth buying since uncharted 2 coming later in october
#31 Posted by TheAcejoel99 (1059 posts) -

Uncharted isn't as long as infamous. But Uncharted is better. If your looking for a fun time sink, get infamous. If your looking for a better story, more concentrated fun, get uncharted. I have to point out that Ive beaten uncharted about 4 times (to get all the trophies) and Ive only beaten infamous once. Even though uncharted is shorter, it is more fun to go through again a few times because of hidden stuff and TONS of unlockable single-player altering things. Its actually a hard pick. But honestly, get infamous, uncharted 2 is coming out this year still, if you can wait, thats going to be better than infamous and will have online multi-player, co-op along side the usual normal length single-player affair.

I love both games but would give the edge to infamous. However, no matter which you end up chosing, you will prbably love it. So you can't lose here.

I will rank (project)the games likes this Uncharted 2 > Infamous > Uncharted.

#39 Posted by vivelaps3 (1060 posts) -

Uncharted is a fantastic game but it's not enough replay value. You should buy INfamous but you should definately try uncharted.

#40 Posted by Ghost_702 (7405 posts) -
Of the two, I've only played Uncharted. It's a great game with a good storyline. Some of it is annoying though and just so unrealistic, but still a good game.

I don't know what you're talking about. inFamous has an amazing story and the gameplay is fun from start to finish. If you consider inFamous to be repetitive, then Uncharted certainly is too. inFamous is far beyond an average game - I'd say it's the best superhero sandbox game I've ever played thus far. With that being said, I'd get Uncharted now in anticipation of Uncharted 2, but certainly don't forget about inFamous. There is going to be a sequel to it so you should definitely get it sometime in the future.
#42 Posted by MURDA_B (2879 posts) -

uncharted

#43 Posted by zeal311 (153 posts) -

Wellllll I traded in Eternal Sonata (blah) and season 1 of Entourage and bought both games! ;)

Playing inFAMOUS now. Lovin it thus far.

#44 Posted by sukraj (21927 posts) -

Infamous.

#45 Posted by membership1 (647 posts) -

#48 Posted by yokofox33 (29281 posts) -

I've only played the demos of each one, but based on those I'd pick Infamous. Game was pretty sweet. I want to get it eventually.

#49 Posted by MacaroniMoses (665 posts) -
I'd say inFamous.
#50 Posted by LOVERPS3 (927 posts) -
