Gamepro: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - MP + Co-Op Preview

Gamepro: "PlayStation 3 owners can finally quit bellyaching about not having a Gears of War of their own -- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is getting some serious online play that will put the screws to Epic's shooter classic.

Like Gears of War 2, Uncharted 2 will include five-on-five multiplayer battles and online cooperative play (with three simultaneous players, no less). Competitive multiplayer isn't an obvious choice for the Uncharted series, but you wouldn't guess that by playing Uncharted 2. In my experiences with team deathmatch, Uncharted 2's multiplayer combat felt fast, tight, and precise -- the hallmarks of any serious online shooter. The controls have been optimized since the first game's solo adventure, and they translate remarkably well to the fast-paced warzones of Uncharted 2. The game's competitive modes play like a nimbler version of Gears of War, with a dash of Metal Gear Solid Online for good measure."

The story is too old to be commented.

- Buggy 60$ dollar retail game. Check
- they nixed the shotgun rushing, and now its just hb spam.
- Lag & host Advantage Still terrible
- The Matchmaking System, is terrible

Lie to me and pretend this is enjoyable. Edit: Its enjoyable, but I more mean that its not a model, standard, or desirable as COD4/R2/COD5's MP standards. Why pick GeoW2 as a discussion point of your Uncharted MP preview?

Gamepro/Everyone else sinks to new lows when they spam their articles with fanboy nonsense. Just goes to show you how afraid everyone is of a good ps3 game. Time to throw the kitchen sink of buh buh's at Uncharted as well, just like kz2. The ps3 can never just have a plain good game, without any BS comparisons that were made up by the author. Sure they will give it a good score, but it can't just have an honest "well this is a good game in its own light" without mixing it with others.

3 player co-op missions will be sweet.

I'm so happy about this news, I can sit enjoying the single player campaign, a friend or two appears online, jump into some co-op. Few more show up and bam a full blow MP fest.

I absolutely adore the Uncharted SP formula, it's practically faultless but these new additions are surely just the cherry on top.

Edit: Oops, sorry didnt mean for this to be a reply, hence no relevance to Morgans post. Soz. Dont really care for the comparison hoo har. I thought Gears to be a good comparison, different systems yes but I think most have an idea how they both play and can come to their own conclusions accordingly.

PLEASE i hope this doesn't turn into a gears vs uncharted battle. Gears is excellent in its own way and so is uncharted.

Let both games try to stand on their own

You know people can't do that. Since both were mentioned in the same sentence, there must now be a bitter fanboy b1tchfest to determine which game will rule for all eternity and which game is merely a canckerous lump of sh1t from Satan's own asshole.

EDIT: There can only be one.

They don't need to be compared. Especially when the only similarities I saw between the two were the cover system and the third person view. Oh and guns.
