Can I skip Uncharted 1?

#1elee101Posted 10/6/2012 7:43:41 PM
I'm really not a huge gamer, and Uncharted 2 is supposed to be amazing. So is there any real downside to skipping the first one?

The two games aren't hugely connected (story-wise), but I highly recommend playing it to get the full experience of the trilogy. UC1 is still an amazing game, IMO.

you might wonder what the hell is going on, and be a little confused unless you either play the game or youtube all the cutscenes.

Play U2 first and treat U1 as a prequel if you ever want to play it.

All you have to know is that Drake's love interest from the first game was a blonde called Elena, and he had a mentor/side kick called Sully.

He'll be fine. The stories aren't connected in the slightest.

Playing the first game in a current-gen trilogy makes you a "huge gamer"? Ok then.

The "stories" in Uncharted are paper-thin anyway.

The first one was pretty amazing too, but not really essential to understanding the second one.

if you're going to skip one of them, skip the third

i'd reccomend playing them all, none of them are very long or have much replay value, but they're all pretty fun and worth a playthrough
