Naughty Dog Explains Gun Mechanics In Uncharted 3
Although Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is the highest rated game of the 2011 so far, a few critics and gamers have voiced some concerns with the combat; specifically, the aiming.
These complaints aren't exactly detailed or precise, as many just say that something feels different in comparison to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Well, Naughty Dog has always responded to their fans, and community boss Arne Meyer has posted up a lengthy explanation over at the studio's blog.
Interestingly enough, Meyer says the aiming hasn't actually changed at all; it's merely more sensitive:
"Aiming is identical to Uncharted 2 - we took a look at the values side by side. We did adjust the sensitivity to be MUCH higher in Uncharted 3 to give you a more precise feel. With Uncharted 2 it was pretty much guaranteed you would aim in one of the 8 directions and it was hard to deviate from that (imagine it being almost like a traditional 8-way arcade stick)." According to Richmond, "With Uncharted 3, you can deviate from the straight path from each of the 8 directions much easier and more precisely."
Also, he mentions that enemies move faster as well, and in fact, Drake now shoots...well, straighter. Meyer says that in the 2009 Uncharted, bullets wouldn't always fire "straight out of the barrel all the time." Now, they do fire straight 100% of the time. So, does all this answer your questions? Or did you not care in the first place? Maybe you were too busy playing the game... That's understandable.
