IGN: Group Session: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

IGN writes:

"The long wait is almost over as Uncharted 2: Among Thieves hits stores this coming Tuesday, October 13th. You've likely already read our written review and watched our video review for the game, but that was just the opinion of the esteemed Chris Roper (with secondary thoughts from the legendary Greg Miller). But what about everyone else in the IGN office?

We received a handful of copies of the game earlier this week and there's been a long waiting list to borrow a copy. So now that a number of folks in the office have played a good portion of it (and in some cases have even finished it), we thought we'd compile all of their thoughts and let you know what more editors think of Naughty Dog's latest."

The story is too old to be commented.

Welp, Im gunna say what Im gunna say. Notice that through out that whole editiorial they didn't mention MP. This is what I was talking about earlier, but PS3 fanboys took it entirely the wrong way. Im not the type of person who pays full price for SP experiences, I normally spend that kinda cash on MP experiences.

This is the reason I'll most likely wait till next year to buy this game when the price drops. YES, I understand Uncharted 2 has MP, but the fact that its not even mentioned here shows that MP IS NOT its strongest point. I enjoy MP experiences much more than SP, so I thk it'll make sense if my money goes towards a game whose strongest suit is MP such as MW2 or LP2 if it comes out this year.

@Up- Yeah, I played it for 7 hrs straight. I was addicted even, its the best TPS online game ive ever played. But better than what Infinity Ward is cooking up? I don't thk so. Modern Warfare 2 was MADE for MP and thats what is being concentrated on. Uncharted 2 MP ain't bad, but it's not intended for MP like MW2 is. Honestly, its not even better than KZ2, but then again it shouldnt be.

UP3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

Maybe you should download the UC2 multiplayer beta to see if the multiplayer is good. I played it, it is amazing not tacked on like other games have done.

UP3117d ago

Then why wont you buy it if you played the beta for 7 hours straight. Who cares if the multiplayer is not its strogest point its still freaking amazing. And please dont compare it to MW2. Thank you

"the fact that its not even mentioned here shows that MP IS NOT its strongest point." "I played it for 7 hrs straight. I was addicted even, its the best TPS online game ive ever played" hmmm you sound like your full of sh!t so the multiplayer was so good you were addicted but still wont buy it because the single player is better if anything if the multiplayer is addicting and the single player is better then it should be a must buy for you but i'm sure you don't plan on buying it you just wanted to come here to continue your crusade to promote mw2 i swear every UC2 article you bring up mw2 do you work at infantryward or something.

Rifle-Man3117d ago

I think it's fair that he's comparing it to MW2 multiplayer, because basically you're going to have to pick which of the two you're going to play every night for the next six months.

I'm buying Uncharted 2 for the single player and Modern Warfare 2 for the multiplayer.

deadreckoning6663117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

@WMV- Uve got it TOTALLY wrong. I don't have time for both games and Im trying to figure out which one to buy. Its as simple as that and thats as far as it goes. Ur free to believe what u want.

I did play the beta for 7 hours straight AND I was addicted to the beta. But Modern Warfare 2 could probably keep me on for maybe 10 or even 15 hours straight! Do ya get it. Although Uncharted 2's MP is great, can't you accept the fact that there maybe be better MP experiences coming out this year? What about MP junkies how don't have the time or money for both? Would you recommend Uncharted 2 to them over MW2? Im just trying ta figure out what ta buy.

PROFIT3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

i wont belittle your opinion, because for all i know U r playing on a 15 inch monitor.

ill tell you this:

at 60 bucks, uncharted 2 is more valuable than anything else this year.

nothing comes close. mw2 is generic(mw1 with new skins...just like every other call of duty). odst is stuck in 2007.the "definitive" racing experience is not definite.
i can go on.

u2 has everything going for it, and it has achieved everything the 360 was supposed to with its 1 year head start. just to poke fun at you ill mention the FREE twitter and the cinema mode.

next youre gonna tell me that dvds are the same as blurays right?LOL

WMW3117d ago

if i had to recommend UC2 or mw2 i would go with UC2 it has amazing multiplayer and story for $60 while mw2 only has multiplayer going for it and cost more then $60 UC2 is a complete package that you get your moneys worth from it.

PimpHandHappy3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

IGN doesnt review beta's and thats all the MP is right now.... look at the walk through and you will notice NOTHING for MP

now sure MW2 is going to rule online but Uncharted 2 will still holds its own in a much different way... Its a slower paced game and i must say much less NOOB friendly unlike COD4.... COD4 was a NOOBS dream

TPS that are good online are very very rare

btw i have 2 games im buying for the rest of 2009.... Uncharted 2 and MW2
the rest are rentals or budget buys (used)

ReservoirDog3163117d ago

By and large, I don't care for multiplayer. I liked Killzone 2 a little, Resistance 2 co op was fun, I got addicted to CoD4 for like a month and I liked Rainbow 6 Vegas 1 and 2. But that's it really.

But, I love the Uncharted 2 multiplayer beta. It's perfect. I highly recommend you download it just to try. The singleplayer in Uncharted 2 might be its strongest point but the multiplayer will easily be a very very very close second.

This was for deadreckoning666 and anyone else who questions the multiplayer as being tacked on.

Course, you could just not like it. Opinions are opinions.

znu3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

Yea i know what u mean man... every1 here's a rabid fan boy

Uncharted 2 probably has more value for your buck, but as far as multiplayer goes, its good, although I see your point modern warfare 2 may be superior

if your an FPS man i say definately go for Modern Warfare 2

people who think mw2 is just mw1 with new skins are being ignorant, but then again they're the ones who're gonna miss out on the fun games :)

I hate how people insult modern warfare 2 JUST because of uncharted2... it really gives us ps3 owners a bad rep :/

oh yea, the uncharted 2 beta is pretty awesome which you shud probably take into consideration

Ummm, all in all, wait for the Modern Warfare 2 reviews and make a decision based on that :)

topdawg1223117d ago

Dead, you're so full of sh*t, sp is obviously the strongest point and you played for 7 hrs straight multi and say it's the best tps experience ever, but you're still not satisfied. Gtfo

PopEmUp3117d ago

I buy both. I love the UC2 beta (awesome imo) and MW2 seem to be promising :)

tripewire3117d ago

someone asked if deadreckoning worked for IW.....

IW said "buy this game" of UC2.....

Ninjamonkey3117d ago

shut up. The fact is your all just annoyed that someone saidf something slightly negative about a ps3 game and cant take it.

Its quite a simple point that he is trying to convey but a minority of people here just seem to skim read posts looking for something bo bash.

He basically wants a game which will last him a long time, months. And whilst he says Uncharted 2's online is brilliant he doesnt think it will have as long legs as MW2's multiplayer.

And whilst Im getting uncharted 2 I completely agree. Modern warfare 1 lasted me an incredible amount of time unlocking all the guns, doing prestiges ect. It ws a near perfect online game.

Im going through a similar thing right now. There are 5 or so games i want but my money right now is going to other things so Im getting what i think will be the best and last longest.

And if for me it was all about the multiplayer then its a no brainer, Modern warefare 2.

That my opinion. But the main point here is read before you bash. and if you still feel the need to bash go to the open zone so us GAMERS can have decent convo's.

dreamcast3117d ago

"shut up. The fact is your all just annoyed that someone saidf something slightly negative about a ps3 game and cant take it. "

Erm, no. People are annoyed that he comments on articles he doesn't read. Had he read it, he would've noticed that they didn't have to game for very long since most of them didn't even finish the SP. One guy even said he only had an hour to play it. Why should they discuss a MP that they probably haven't played.

Also, the fact that he said he was addicted to the MP then said it wasn't a MP experience is a fail on several levels.

UnwanteDreamz3117d ago

I don't get it. 2 long comments to say you wont pay full price for the game? Who cares? Why comment here if you aren't even getting the game?

Attention Wh*re?

@znu
"people who think mw2 is just mw1 with new skins are being ignorant, but then again they're the ones who're gonna miss out on the fun games :) I hate how people insult modern warfare 2 JUST because of uncharted2... it really gives us ps3 owners a bad rep :/"

I don't like MW2 and it has zero to do with Uncharted 2. Why don't you go look for a MW2 article to comment in? BTW you play one good FPS MP you have played them all and if that is the extent of your "fun games" this year, well I feel sorry for you.

znu3116d ago

"

THAT IS THE DUMBEST THING I HAVE EVER READ

Counter Strike is nothing at all like Call of Duty nor Halo, although they're all great games...Why am i commenting about Modern Warfare 2 here...? First of all, i'm replying to a previous comment, to a GAMER, who cares about playing games, not brand loyalty!!!

If you're not interested in Modern Warfare 2 then fair enough, it's not your cup of tea... but don't bash the game by making petty excuses, Infinity Ward, like Naughty Dog and Bungie, give gamers AAA games!

So many great games, so little money.

I might have to trade in inFamous to be able to afford this one.

Bad idea?

deadreckoning6663117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

Actually Up, u might have just convinced me to buy it :)
Its just that everytime I play COD4 at my friends house its so goddamn fun. I don't wanna buy em both cause I know I won't have the time for both. Uncharted 2 ill proly have the best SP ive ever played. But I feel more comfortable spending 60 bucks on MW2 a game ill be playing for the next 2 years.

I ended up spending 30 bucks on MGS4 cause my friends recomended it and Ive only played it once since this summer. Last gen I was all about SP, but this one has been about MP.

"next youre gonna tell me that dvds are the same as blurays right?LOL"

1. U must thk Im some kind of 360 fanboy

2. Ur comments have made this more than a simple game comparison

"u2 has everything going for it, and it has achieved everything the 360 was supposed to with its 1 year head start." Seriously....

Nikuma3117d ago

Don't trade your game in... if anything try and sell it on ebay or craigs list... Gamestop will just rob you of a good game.

Knightrid8083117d ago

As much as it pains me to recommend you selling inFamous, I can understand your situation for this upcoming holiday season. The relentless awsome games are worth it.

Well, it's a great game and it definitely deserves all the attention and praise its recieving :)

VanHalen3117d ago

I was fortunate enough to pick up Uncharted 2 at this hole in the wall game store out here in the OC by accident. Holy [email protected], cant believe i scored it.

Ps_alm3k3117d ago

they love uncharted 2, but they are too much of a cod mw2 fanboy that they become delusional and
are in self denial, then starts to implode in biasness for mw2. wierd!!

deadreckoning6663117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

Yeah lol, I thk I am a COD fanboy, but I really can't help it. Believe it or not, ive never owned a COD game in my life. Ive only played at friends houses and in college. IDK wat it is, but that games multiplayer is just CRACK..utter crack. I wouldn't mind getting Uncharted 2 but u have to admit how insane MW2 will be.

As a matter of fact, ive been planning on buying Uncharted 2 since March, but the AC130 and CTF trailers converted me fully. I mean, U CAN LAUNCH A FREAKIN MISSILE FROM THE SKY AND KILL 4 PEOPLE AT ONCE!! If u don't thk thats cool, then u don't like action. Also, u can customize the hell outta the guns, somethg thats understandably absent from Uncharted 2.

U guys have to understand that Uncharted 2 isn't meant for the COD or Halo junkies, its for people who want a new type of shooter. Thanks for all the comments! I thk I know which one makes more sense to buy now.

znu3117d ago

"5 - deadreckon reminds me of my friends...

Hypocrisy? Aren't you just doing the same thing except the other way around?
