E4G: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Review

Admin at E4G writes, "With the release of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves just a month away, will it live up to the expectation?"

Update:

The author noticed this post on N4G and looked at the comments. He decided to rewrite the review since people on E4G and N4G were picky because of his grammer...

The story is too old to be commented.

And it only took them 2 years to do it!

dkblackhawk3286d ago

Hopefully they receive a very nice paycheck :P.

PirateThom3286d ago

Considering $40m allowed them to produce Uncharted and Uncharted 2, I really hope Sony gives them a nice cash boost for their next game, since they've pretty much guaranteed themselves another $20m

dkblackhawk3286d ago

That's some bonus right there. No wonder why Naughty Dog stayed with Sony lol.

talltony3286d ago

Reviewers give games 9.8's. Whay cant they just give it a 10? How can anyone tell the difference between a 9.8 game and a 10 game? i dnt think I could.

dkblackhawk3286d ago

is how they introduced the stealth mode, you basically had to figure out yourself what to do. That was my only con of the game.

Jeff2573286d ago

Actually Sony has owned ND since 2000. Unlike Insomniac who chose to stay independent, ND actually accepted Sony's offer to buy them. Still they do seem to have a lot of autonomy when it comes to what they work on and how long it takes them to make a game. Anyway we really need to get out and buy this game to insure the hardworking folks at ND get paid some extra money this year. I know Ill be picking it up on day one.

Jamegohanssj53286d ago

Yeah because we all know like a whole month is a few days away lol. They should have just gave it the extra .2 points.

"Sony has finally found some exclusives that make you actually enjoy a good game."

WTF? Finally? Are they trying to tell me up until now the PS3 hasn't had one single good game to play? This is literally the third time out of what, four Uncharted 2 reviews were the author takes stealth jabs at Sony.

What happened to MGS4? GT5P? MLB: The Show? Demon Souls? Killzone 2? Resistance 2? LittleBigPlanet? LBP was awarded GOTY 2008 for fvck sakes.

How about just calling it " A stealth Puzzle" .... After-all , people complained how easy the Puzzles were in UC1. Maybe its ND's way of saying , "here ya go, work this one out"

Either way, its like someone taking -.02 points of the score because it took a while to work out the Game menu.

Fair dinkum.....

ThanatosDMC3286d ago (Edited 3286d ago )

Is this another unknown/random website? Did they even play the game. Not that im questioning that Uncharted wouldnt be great cuz we all know it'll be awesome, but all these random websites writing a review are very questionable.

It's almost like they just reworded IGN's review.

Sitdown3286d ago

"And it only took them 2 years to do it!"

So are you denying the existence of the original uncharted?...unless you are telling us they made Uncharted 2 from the ground up and did not take a single ounce of knowledge from development on the original. With that said, I am loving the lines in this game...hopefully you get sarcasm/quick wit from start to finish.

ultimolu3286d ago

*does a dance*

Yeah! :D

JL3285d ago

Not going to say much here, cause I'm trying to stay away from Uncharted 2 stuff as much as possible til I get to play what I'm sure will be an amazing game (of course, that's not working out TOO well if I'm in here huh--but trying to stay out of the hype as much as possible). I only want to comment on one thing though...

@TallTony
Actually I much prefer a game getting 9.8/10 instead of a perfect 10. Cause there is NO game that is perfect. 9.8 is much better in my opinion, cause it says "Of course, the game isn't perfect...of course. But this game is absolutely amazing and it is right there bordering on perfection like we've very rarely seen before". So, on the contrary, I absolutely hate people giving games perfect scores. Just isn't right. I mean I know if I were a reviewer, there wouldn't be a game out that I'd give a perfect 10. That's part of the problem with the gaming media these days, they're too generous with games (ie giving soem perfect scores, though there's obviously some fault in there)...that and them buying into hype too much themselves.

KingsofOmega3285d ago

Because the game didn't hold your hand and pat your back through one section of the game?

It's a puzzle, figure it out on your own.

Great review, Can't wait to pick this up.
so is the only Con that most reviews been complaining about is that sneaking part? I watched the video of it and it looks awesome

dkblackhawk3286d ago

It was just basically thrown at you with little tutorial. That was the only problem i had which is only a .2 difference :P.

Nikuma3285d ago

Casual gamers and their reliance on tutorials..lol. You honestly can't figure out how to sneak up behind someone and snap their neck?

dustgavin3286d ago

PS3 gamers enjoy the best games of 2009 while the 360 owners get rehashed Halo, Gay Tony, and race car drivers that are reverse vampires.

chaosatom3286d ago

yep, uncharted is miles ahead of whatever 360 had or will have.

dkblackhawk3286d ago

and i say that the PS3 will smoke the 360 out of the ball park unless they come up with something special and unique...

Nitrowolf23286d ago

like pirate said in the other post in the gamerzone about the budget that incredible. MS could have done that if they didn't waist it on crappy DLC.

AliTheBrit3286d ago

Sorry.

I must have missed the day when it was announced the biggest titles of 2009

Assassins Creed 2, Modern Warfare 2

Etc.

Where still coming to the Xbox 360 :)

Oh and lets not forget, as always, superior on the Xbox 360 :)

wxer3286d ago

you are really funny

El Botto3286d ago

Hahaha - UnRivalled 2 GAME-OF-THE-YEAR.

Please suck on that, xbots.

-x.Red.x-3286d ago

I love how Bots use MULTI-PLATS to defend what's left of their console...

Guitarded3286d ago

You morons finally get one decent exclusive and a price drop and all you can do is prematurely ejaculate.

The more I see of this game, the less it impresses me. It'll be a good rental when the PoS3 drops to $200.

NecrumSlavery3286d ago

@ RED

like how the Bots tried to use Prototype like it was their own to battle inFAMOUS, the best sandbox game this gen hands down.

360 fanboys are redonkulously idiotic. It's funny when we tell them theater their games(ie Gears, L4D, Mass) Run better on our Sony PCs.

Sir Ken_Kutaragi3286d ago

It was 'KillZone 2' Vs 'Halo Wars' on this before and now it seems like it's 'Uncharted 2' Vs 'Halo 3:RRoDST'!!! What next??? 'GT5' Vs 'Halo:Milo'??? ;-D

Halo, Halo, Halo, Gears, Halo, Halo, Gears, Halo, Gears, Gears, Halo...Zzzzzzzzz

THANK GOD FOR SONY!!! ;-P

ginsunuva3286d ago

Unrivalled is a stupid name.

Unchallenged 2: Among Beasts is the correct name!

cereal_killa3286d ago

Ali I know when you were around the last time you were actually a totally different person I remember you and crab going at it many times when he was just a 360 only fanboy now your back and you seem to have been totally brained washed, Did Mart share his Aaron Greenberg kokmeat sandwich with you 1 day and you totally fell in love with Sales and Metajoke.com.... Oh and BTW Ali_the_Muppet I hate to break it to you but since the PS3 gets extra content in AC2 because of the AC PSP game giving you extra weapons and other things seems that it will be better on the PS3 but I guess you must have been talking Sales am i right....

likedamaster3285d ago

Poor devs, won't make their money back. Nothing sells well on the ps3.

frnkyl3285d ago

Namco made some money from Tales of Vesperia off the PS3 version. Actually, they made more money in a day on the PS3, than in a week on the 360. :P

PotNoodle3285d ago

likedamaster, shame Naughty dog don't fund their games themself, Sony do.

Seriously, I hope bias doesn't get in the way of giving out Game of the Year awards this year, because Nuaghty Dog deserves it. Hands Down.

lordkemp0073286d ago

The tranquilliser gun sounds intriguing.

Cant wait for this. Congratulations naughty dog. I thought you would be hard pushed to beat Drakes fortune, but it looks like you have achieved it and then some. Even giving us multiplayer.

Day 1 for me, as was the first game.
