Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is less than a month away and game journalists are happily reviewing their copies now, lost in the rich and graphically amazing world of Nathan Drake. Early previews had been extremely positive and now as the first reviews leak to the web it sounds as if the initial response the game received was well warranted. IGN declared "With stunning visuals (that still rank amongst the best in gaming today), a fantastically told story, great puzzles and high-octane gunplay, it's easily one of the best titles of this console generation," and GamesRadar gushed "Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. It looks amazing, plays like a dream and the voice-acting/story-telling will hook you in right from the off. PS3 officially has its killer-app."
By all accounts, Uncharted 2 is a masterpiece.
So it's time to cue the journalistic hate.
IGN's quote was indeed from the first Uncharted which made it's way into the Uncharted 2 review. Thanks to kalel114, callahan09 and Scelestus for pointing this out to me. Article has now been amended with appropriate quote.
IGN declared “It's easily one of the best games on the system, blending fantastic presentation and visuals with gameplay that is practically second to none.”
