Jumping from heights

9 replies 14 views Edited Jun 12, 2011

I have been playing uncharted 2 for a while now, and I have noticed that Jumping from a tall platform (like in the temple where the deagle is) onto the ground, and surviving let alone not hurt.

 

So I have seen loads of videos but there hasn't been one of those times where I am able to see if falling from a height WILL injure you. 

 

It is helpful in some cases, but the amount of times I have been stealthed in the temple or in the santucary where they jump from those square tile roof tops.

Ackshually, some falls in uncharted 2 will kill you. For example take the sniper platform on the right where the heroes spawn. If you jump into the hole in the ground-BAM! You're dead.

 

Just sayin'!

GODDAMN BRONIES!

This is just my idea

Jun 12, 2011

but I think that's one of the things that makes Uncharted so unique. When you're being followed by someone, you dont wanna jump and die right? It has happened to me, I was being followed by a dude, and I jumped and managed to hide.

What if I jumped, and died? There would be no point in running then ._.

What map? I'm fairly certain any deaths from high jumps are due to geometry glitches, not because of how high you jumped from. You can live from a jump on the top of the Sanctuary bases.

If you hold down circle while jumping it won't auto ledge grab, actually. Fun fact!

 


Anyway, I would prefer if there was no falling damage, honestly. In a game with so many platforming elements like Uncharted (especially looking at the new map designs for UC3), I'd much rather be able to just run, jump, and climb stuff freely like a total monkey without having to worry about whether or not I'll get killed by it. I mean, when I'm getting shot, I want to be able to do whatever it takes to escape. I am going to jump the heck off that building, if necessary!

 

That's just me, though.

Yeah, I really think that's just a fluke. By comparison to so many other maps, that's barely even a jump. Could be that the impact causes you to hit a death plane? I always kinda wondered.

 

If you can jump from the topmost building in Highrise, all the way down to the lowest level in the other building, and survive, I have no idea why that little leap in Ice Cave should kill you. :smileyvery-happy:

I think you should have some sort of delay after you land, nothing too big though. Maybe Monkey man would even cancel the delay. Either way I doubt this will be integrated into U3.

 

Keep in mind, you're not always supposed to win, it's not always going to be fair, sometimes you'll just be at a disadvanatge, that's how the game works, it's not a fighting game, or a 1v1, there's way too many variables to make every single encounter a fair fight.

 

I don't think it's right for someone to get the jump on you, and for you to simply negate that by jumping off a tower and disappearing in a cave down below. War is'nt fair, pretty soon everyone will just want to have the entire game last like the shoot out segments in RDR, constantly respawning in front of someone, at the same time, same place, again and again.
