Blend Games Review: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Blend Games writes: "Every time a PS3 or Xbox 360 exclusive turns out to be great, there's a temptation to say some melodramatic bullsh*t like "A great blow has been struck in the console war!" I didn't feel bad for Microsoft or Xbox 360 owners when I played Uncharted 2, though. I felt bad for Eidos. They've been trying to breath life back into Tomb Raider for years and along comes Uncharted 2, a similarly-themed game that trumps Lara Croft in every way. UC2 features many elements from other recent action games but Naughty Dog has pulled these various old ideas together to create something new and great." (PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves) 5/5

Haha bots. No need to call it Dude Raider. It blows Tomb Raider out of the water. Now, suck it bots.

automatic xbox fanboy response: but but Halo
automatic wii fanboy response: but but the wiimote

I don't think anyone's ever said "but but the Wiimote." I'd imagine they'd be more likely to brag about Super Mario Galaxy or Twilight Princess.

Xbox fans are waiting for Edge to validate their non-purchasing decisions.

Come on you guys. I'm getting bored of these perfect scores for Uncharted 2. /sarcasm
sikbeta  +   2317d ago
everything related to mario even if I hate it, goes to the nintendo fanboys but in this generation we have a new race of fanboys better known as wii-fanboys, I thought all of you already notice that, resume: casuals motion control and crappy games lovers = wii-fanboys

I got the game on Friday and it is worth buying a ps3 for, played late last night went to sleep for four hours woke up and finished the game today. There is no game out there that can be compared to the amount to action and it's also funny. Movie/Game confimered. UC2 is amazing

All eyes are on Edge at this point. People could see that 8/10 coming from a mile away.
dreamcast  +   2316d ago
I'm pretty sure it will be getting a 9/10 from EDGE. Didn't the first one get an 8/10?

Very......................
good game.

New graphics, with better visual.
New spectacular gameplay, this gameplay bring the gaming industry to a higher level.

The music is very relax, and the audio is very intense just like the graphics and the gameplay, this game beat Killzone 2 in all frontes.

@The real killer & BigMassacre which chapter are you guys at now??
I'm going to take it slow and enjoy the game throughly :p

Who was that dumb f#@$ who said something negative about UC2's snow? Those are the frikin' best looking snow i've ever seen and interactive too(try rolling around and see what happens to drake's shirt)!
BigMassacre  +   2317d ago
Playing it right now and I can proudly say that it deserves all of these great scores. It just gives me that warm feeling.
NecrumSlavery  +   2317d ago
Over 40 perfect scores! Where are you Edge? You Pussbags
spike  +   2317d ago

"Naughty Dog has pulled these various old ideas together to create something NEW and great."

did they say new??? but game trailers said they didnt do anything new..
N2NOther  +   2316d ago
I think it's hilarious that there are tons of people here wait for a review from Edge merely so they can complain about it. Why do you all care so much? I've never seen so many "gamers" who spend less time talking about games they like in favor of talking about critics and scores they don't.
