i am about half way thru the single player campaign and although the game is great at its core it is still uncharted. well to be fair it is more like uncharted squared. everything i liked about the first and more.
my only regret is that i had seen so many trailers,demo's,game play footage. beta's, and video reviews that alot of the holy sh*t and WOW moments were gone because i had seen to much already.
have a feeling that same thing is going to happen with my next 2 games on my most wanted list GOW3 and heavy rain. i must resist all the INTERNET hype. (starting to hate demo's)
it really takes away from the experience if you know what to expect.
uc2 is like a good book. once you start you don't want to put it down till you finish.

HOW GOOD IS THIS F_CKING GAME!?!?!? my god man, the multiplayer is top notch, the single player story must be so d@mn good!!! drakes fortune was so this just has to be.

This game is amazing, if you liked the first game you will love this one. It's 10x better then the first, my favorite part about it was moving cars, that's all I'm going to say, one of the omg moments. The online is even better then the beta, much more things to buy skins, boosters, and maps/modes

I cannot wait anymore for this game. I've been skipping reviews since I was afraid they would have spoilers and my fears were confirmed with Gamespot and Gametrailers reviews but all in all, Tuesday really can't come fast enough. I'm going to pick up Uncharted 2 with Fallout 3: Game of The Year Edition. Then the next week, R&C Future:ACiT.

Man, this is a great year to be a PS3 gamer and next year is set to be even more exciting.

Crap, and I'm flying abroad tomorrow... At least I'll be back on friday night to hit the UC2 weekend.

I like how ever review apart from GameTrailers avoids the fact this game has completely no originality. This game shall not beat Halo: CE, Zelda: OFT or Super Mario 64. That's a fact.
Ron_Burgundy  +   2050d ago
more perfect reviews, I'm lovin it.

One of the best games of all time indeed
WildArmed  +   2050d ago
wow. Bold statement.
I guess Adam's statement about it being the Best single player he has every played encouraged other reviewers to speak up?
So this is officially sitting with Zelda Ocarina of Time in the Hall of Fame of video games.
Glad to be a part of it

Oh, btw i hoped you njoyed that 100 grand check from sony /s

Its weird that you say that. This game is looking like it will be historical like Ocarina just because its getting so much praise.
Kenshinhimurasz  +   2050d ago
I beat the game yesterday and I have to agree with adam, one of the best single player I have ever played. UC2 is now my favorite game, use to be MGS4. Also people online are playing and some are lvl 25 already so dont be suprised if you see a lvl 30-40 already, happing gaming.
mayberry  +   2050d ago
high praise from alot of reviewers!
My 60G ps3 will never turn off! (really, it hasn't since I got it!)

Similar Story:
My friend has two PS3s that he bought at launch. One of them was kept on for 3 months straight when Folding@home was released! All he did was keep one folding the whole time while he would play the other.

Just goes to show you how long they can last.
Zuhk  +   2050d ago
I also left mine on for 2 years straight
for one reason or another, whether it be to fold@home or just out of pure laziness I never turned it off. But now I have it set to turn off after 2 hours of idle time. The PS3 is truly an incredible piece of hardware.

I see a 9.7 average coming up.
god_o_war  +   2050d ago
0iits already at 97/100 avereage (metacritic) i jus want it to go go to 98 or atleast 98.5 because GTA4 cant be the highest rated game this gen ive played all since the ps1 days and gta4 did nothing but disappoint.
N2NOther  +   2049d ago
Disappoint you. I thought it delivered on every level that I wanted it to. And why do you care if GTA IV gets 1 point higher? How does this affect you in any way?

2 weeks food supplies in
2 weeks water supplies in
1 copy on uncharted 2 due in
1 door locked
1 phone switched off
and so it begins...
Sarcasm  +   2050d ago
Throw in Demon's Souls and eventually MW2, you might as well weld steel doors and cut yourself off from the human race.

You still have to eventually come out for GoWIII, The Last Guardian, GT5, and Heavy Rain though.

kaveti6616  +   2050d ago
Damn. As soon as I posted it, I saw you had posted something right after and I thought you must have read it. To be honest, I don't know what happens. I've only played the MP beta. I was just guessing.

I usually don't reserve stuff, but just to be sure i reserved Uncharted 2
I got the last copy of Demon's Souls the day it was released i didn't reserve it so i got lucky, don't feel like driving everywhere for UC2 though xD can't wait for UC2

Tripl3seis  +   2050d ago
Can I just say one thing? This game is just amazing nd has done one of the gratest games of all time here and I can't believe I'm playing it in my life time.that's how a game should be made take your time do what you have 2 do to improve the game and that's what they did with uncharted 2 wow. One more thing if people are still on the fence on getting a ps3 u don't know what your missing this console can do a lot of things and more
It has perfected the TPS almost for consoles(slight camera issues) ( yet i think thats all tps/action forever)....its between this and gears..to me personally uncharted is more natural movement..but then again in gears they have armor so u can make the argument either way..but far as story telling uncharted has it all the way

Gears animation doesn't even compare to the first Uncharted or even alot of last gen games.
Marquis_de_Sade  +   2049d ago
Yes Bathyj, of course Gears has worse animations than a lot of last gen games /facepalm
Bathyj  +   2049d ago
Well off the top of my head, ICO, SotC and any Jak and Daxter game ALL have better animation than Gears. Animation is not Gears strong point. Slimy textures are for some reason.
ShabzS  +   2049d ago
i loved the slimy textures. animation in gears is pretty good.. but goes unnnoticed coz they dont do much other than run, duck and chain saw... but the epic executions in gears 2 are pretty well animated... especially the torque bow execution

on topic: great score

That may be the case for those games, but saying "a lot" of last gen games is no more than an exaggeration, a very big one at that.
