Uncharted 2: Buy a PS3 to Play It, It's that Good

Every system has that one game that makes the console worth owning and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is that title for the PS3. (PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves)

« 1 2 »

I have to agree with this article 100%. It's definitely worth buying a PS3 just to play Uncharted 2. The other game is Gran Turismo 5.

They both may turn up being bad games but I highly doubt it.

Oh yeah, and Killzone 2.

Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack In Time
God of War 3
White Knight Chronicles 2

PS3 owners, you know the deal!

madusha..i dont understand your logic
how MIGHT they both end up being bad games? apart from the usual low scores from gamedaily,gamespy and that joke tom orry (i urge people to compare his 360 and ps3 reviews) from videogamer how might u2 be a bad game?

as for gran turismo being a bad game it'll never happen despite 360 fanboys having dolls of Kazunori Yamauchi with pins stuck in it

The way he described the game
Is the exact way I felt about Drake's Fortune. I've played Uncharted over 30 times now in the past 2 years and am so excited for the sequel.

Uncharted is my facvourite all time game and if there's any game to knock it out of that spot it will be its own sequel.

@ Guitarded's post
LOL somebody is bitter.

On topic.

If people buy a PS3 it should be because of the broader range of exclusives. There is AAA exclusives for almost every genre.

UC2 & UC1 - Action Adventure
Rachet and Clank games - Platforming
Killzone 2 & Resistance 2 - FPS
LittleBigPlanet - Creation/Online Community
GT5 - Racing Simulation
MotorStorm - Racing
Demon Souls & VC - RPGS
God of War 3 - Hack and Slash
Heavy Rain - Undefined Genre???

Probably more. Just a quick list.
Sarcasm  +   2309d ago
There is more than enough reasons to buy a PS3.

Uncharted 2 is just another super insanely big reason.

And for $299... come on folks... This isn't even a question anymore.

It's so sad that he posted this twice. On both sides of the comments on this story ( Gamer zone and Open zone ). His opinion is worth as much as his bubbles.

@ Guitarded
On a troll name name I called it "Unfarted Poo". Obviously I was just joking since it was a troll name, but that's way better than Who Farted 2: Among Cheese. At least Unfarted Poo actually kind of made sense since it refers to a wet fart that has yet to be released and Uncharted 2 hasn't come out and a 360 fanboy will think it's crap.

I LOVE MY PS3 AND I'M GETTING UNCHARTED 2! That was just something I said on a troll account, I don't mean it. Troll accounts are for when you're bored and want to make a fool of yourself. You don't say your true opinion on a 1-day troll account. Xbox Avatar's Shoe is my real account where I'm honest. From the looks of it, Guitarded seems to be that guy's real profile and that's his real opinion -- sad.

If you're a troll, then you're not a very good one.

If you aren't, then you should get into rehab because whatever drug you are abusing is having some serious effects.

Been playing it since Friday.
It's pretty darn good. I recommend it whole heartedly just off the strength of the single player. Can't wait till the servers go up so I can get some multi-player going.

Edit: Some of you have "troll accounts"? Wow. I have one alt account and I only use it when my main is banned. But this is my main and the only account I use.

The only thing those games have is SLIGHTLY better graphics.
The difference in graphics is like Xbox to Gamecube
last gen. Not like Xbox to PS2(Those comparisons were a joke much like third party games between 360 and PS3) Too bad all those games put together don't equal the fun of just one 360 game. Who Farted 2:Among Cheese is not worth $300 for the PS3. Seems like all Sonys first party games are tech demos with lackluster gameplay. I guess that's what you get when you have to spend all your resources just trying to figure out how to use the stupid architecture that Sony put in the PoS3.
ZBlacktt  +   2309d ago
It's simple really.. Blu-ray > DVD at the end of the day.
ZBlacktt  +   2309d ago

Interesting, seeing that the Xbox console is a piece of junk that fails more than 50% of the time. Let's see it's manufacture just try and get it right for once. I mean it's been 4 years and it's the worlds biggest failure in the gaming history of consoles. That says a lot of just how smart the consumers are that still buy into that lemon huh? You have the out dated format that lost the war. You have no Wi-Fi standard at all. You can't even play online without paying. Do they still scratch the game discs? What about sounding like a helicopter? I have never gotten why someone would want to deal with a console that fails that much. What a headache that must be and it will never have the quality of a blu-ray movie or elite AAA game. Yet, you can guarantee that it will fail on you at some point.

Its nothing to do with having a game thats equal.

Stop comparing consoles, Look at the Xbox 360 on its own and think what does it offer that no other console can...

Xbox Live, the award winning online experience, PSN cant come close to offering the kind of premium online experience XBL Gold can.

Amazing games like, Gears of War series, Left 4 Dead series, Fable II, GTA: Episodes From Liberty City.

And those are just the AAA recent titles :)

I take it you're not one to go for achievements or any other unlockables? I just can't see spending 60 dollars on a game that you're only going to beat once and never revisit; even if the game has good multiplayer.
Halo3 MLG Pro  +   2309d ago
I rarely ever go back to the campaign after beating it. Beating it one time and I'm usually good. Unless it has some sort of co-op like Halo 3 which I'll play the campaign numerous times with my buddies. I do like to try for achievements tho' so I'll go for that but I'm hooked on the 360 achievements and don't really want to venture into ps3 trophies. I'm a big multiplayer man so I'll buy a ps3 once I see something that has top notch multiplayer. Unfortunately Uncharted 2's multiplayer looks simple. My multiplayer skills are going to be busy with Forza 3 and MW2 at the moment. MAG looks interesting, hopefully they polish it up some more. I'm still praying for a next gen Twisted Metal. Online multiplayer Twisted Metal and I'm in heaven.

BTW, the tap dancing Master Chief thing is actually kinda funny. Good one.

What wrong with the single player being simple? Simple doesn't mean bad =P and its not THAT simple...the platforming, melee and perks all add to the experience.

Just because its simple doesn't mean it isn't going to be good.

Counter Stike is one of the SIMPLEST MP games out there...and its the best too.

A valid excuse would be, you just Don't Want To o buy one, i mean look at your comment history =P

You'll never buy a PS3. Let's just leave it at that.

I've already seen through your real colors trolling the Gran Turismo threads. Don't act like you're so interested in Uncharted 2.
Halo3 MLG Pro  +   2309d ago
Are you talking about the single player cuz I said the multiplayer looks simple. Looks to be a basic multiplayer shooter. Their are tons of better mutliplayer games out there that are better than Uncharted 2.

And yes you are correct, MW2 doesn't take much skill but it's still a lot of fun to play. Most of my gaming will go to Forza 3 for the next few months with a splash of Left 4 Dead 2 and MW2.

@ Halo3 MLG Pro
you think UC2 is a basic multiplayer shooter please name 1 other 3rd person shooter thats lets you climb all over the map and hang from ledges. also how is it simple when in competitive multiplayer you can get hit from every angle not only that there are boosters and leveling up. co-op also is more deep then any other co-op game the enemies have more variety and can go everywhere you do so unlike in gears you can't just camp in 1 spot because they can come from everywhere and on top of that you have an objective to complete. if you think that UC2 has simple multiplayer then halo, l4d and gears must be so easy and basic to you that it feels like they play themselves none of these have anything over UC2's multiplayer. halo you bunny hop in a circle till your enemies are dead gears you run at the enemy then roll and shot gun/chainsaw l4d hold the trigger button and just walk around and you think UC2 is simple lol.
dredgewalker  +   2309d ago
Even the first Uncharted was enough reason to by a PS3 even though not many people knew about it because of all the FUD the PS3 had at that time. Its not just U2 but the other games that make up its library makes it worth getting. Things are now in full steam for the PS3 this year and is going to be better next year.

By March PS3 will have the most diverse gaming library out!!!

When will people understand that the PS3 is not a one or two trick pony like the comp?.
PS fans have been arguing about the definitive PS game but no one game can claim that title. Some say GT, some FF, some like me say MGS, some GTA, some GoW, some Socom etc etc.

The point is there is no point is saying that one game in particular is worth buying a PS console. That is just stupid and the stupid thing is the media is still looking for that particular PS title. They never will. GT is the closest in terms of sales and brand but even GT will never sell to more than 30% or 40% of PS fans because they are that many and diverse. Even though GT5 will sell more than halo 3 and mario wii. It will not be that popular to the bulk of PS fans compare to Mario and Halo to wii and x360 fanbase respectively.

Sony made a clear and very wise choice of not branding the PS console to one particular franchise. Thats why the PS never had a mascot. Sony realised when they entered the market that Nin was focusing way too much on young to teenage gamers. Sony's vision was to take gaming mainstream which means including games for mature adults and the general masses. Diversity was and is the key to the PS success. Thats why SCEI was broken up into 3 main regions to cater for specific regions gaming taste and needs.

Do you guys ever wonder why Sony push each and every one of their games equally?. Weather its LBP, or KZ2 or Infamous or RC Sony gives equal attention to each of these games. You don't see that with MS with Banjo and Gears and Halo and Viva. To Sony. The PS game collection collectively is the reason to buy a PS console, not just one game in particular because Sony knows that if you do that you will limit your market. Thats why the PS1 and ps2 are the only consoles in history to reach the 100 million mark. It is marketed to appeal to every type of gamer from different background with different gaming taste with its diverse and quality game lineup. Not just hardcore shooters or extreme casuals. PS is the middle ground. It always has. No one can typecast the PS and its PS fanbase unlike the comp.

Again the media has to stop this nonsense. Every time a big ps exclusive is about to release they ask weather it will be the PS equivalent of halo or mario which is stupid and belittle the excellent PS exclusive that have already been released. It gives the masses the idea that the PS3 game lineup is inferior when its actually superior.

The truth is, if you ask Ps3 fans you will get very diverse answers to games that they bought a PS3 for. Some would be VC or DS or MGS4 like me etc etc.
Darkfiber  +   2309d ago
Agreed. Every game I own but 1 is a PS3 exclusive, the only multiplatform game I have is GTA 4 (and probably soon to be Brutal Legend, mayyyyyybe Borderlands and/or Fallout 3 GOTY but I might get those for PC). Right now I am totally hooked on Demon's Souls, seriously the best game I've played this entire generation and it's a PS3 exclusive. I can guarantee I'll play this game more than Uncharted 2 and probably have more fun playing it as well since it's more my type of game. I'm gonna get Uncharted 2 as well but what they've done with Demon's Souls is something so unique I don't think anything can touch it in terms of atmosphere and feeling of accomplishment and addiction.
sikbeta  +   2309d ago
The First one is so good, but If someone needs to focus in one game to buy a PS3 I think is missing the point, PS3 have a wonderful line-up of games and is growing tremendously, 2010 says HELLO, but if in the past you couldn't afford the PS3 ($$$) Uncharted 2 + PS3 slim is the best chance, no regrets

killzone 2 bored me to death,little big planet had a certain charm but was misiing something for me personaly and uncharted left me cold,hopefully uncharted 2 will deliver but i downloaded the beta and thought it was boring...just my opinion but my PS3 has paid for itself by way of being a fatastic blu-ray player,just not that into the sony exclusives just yet,im sure GT5 will be amazing though!

i am lucky
i got it on friday, been playing the single player, 87% done.

it is without a doubt one of the best games i've ever played.

my one complaint is that I wish Sully played as big a role as he did in the first one, I like his character.

besides that this game just keeps out doing itself chapter by chapter.

also if you beat the first game you get 100,000 dollars to spend in the in game store, that plus the money i've gotten in the single player, I've got over 300,000 dollars, that plus the preorder code from gamestop that gives me the revenge perk, sh*t, first day of multiplayer on tuesday is gonna be great.

There is no game on any current gen console that outdoes this.

I usually dont get so excited but this game is damn near perfect.
