NaughtyDog, Please fix the Lighting in this game (To how it is in Uncharted 2 and The Last of Us)

11 replies 1351 views Edited Nov 19, 2013

It's almost as if all of the settings are on maximum, lighted areas at 100% and shaded areas in the single digits.  There's no balance, no softness in lighting or color.  The lighting is terrible in every map, but it is the worst in the new maps.

 

I turned the Brightness down all the way in Options, it doesn't fix the problem.  I even went as far as to adjust all of the settings on my TV so that the lighting could be more balanced, less harsh, even that doesn't work.  There are so many problems with the lighting in this game it is baffling.  Uncharted 2 and The Last of Us look great.  Those two games have a softness to their colors, there is a subtleness in regards to daylight, in this game, it's like playing underneath a giant lightbulb.

The game's not as dark as UC2 or TLOU because it's not gritty or dirty. It's Hollywood-ish. It's meant to be bright, and you're lucky they didn't spam lens flares.

Maybe your TV is the problem? I've never had any issue concerning lightning. Smiley Very Happy

Maybe he's not used to it. Even people who liked GTA 4's lighting would think GTA 5 is too bright. Same goes here.

By the way, could you take a screenshot of your "horrible" visuals and post it here? Thank you.

I find some maps and/or specific areas of maps problematic but for me, not nearly as widespread as it seems for you.  I’m talking in terms of visibility and the ability to pick out enemies.  I will say I recently played on Flooded Ruins in UC2 and far preferred it to Molten Ruins in UC3 but I think it had more to do with Molten Ruins having a more “oppressive” feel to it – what with all that lava!
