Chasing girls, gold through history: Ars reviews Uncharted 2

Ars writes: "Uncharted 2 proves that a game can rise above well-known conventions to create something truly special. You've seen this character, these settings, and even many of these scenes before, but not like this-and certainly not looking and playing this good."

The Good

* One of the most beautiful games of this generation
* Excellent voice acting, perfectly defined characters
* A good length at 10 hours or so
* Gun fights, action scenes can play out many, many different ways
* Well rounded selection of weapons
* Genuinely funny writing

The Bad

* One dimensional villain
* A story that doesn't break much new ground
* Story falters somewhat in the last act
* It ends at all

The Ugly

* After this game, you'll realize just how poor and slapped together the writing and voice acting is in most other games
* The comments when people realize we're saving the thoughts on multiplayer for another post

LOL

True. Some exceptions are Batman AA and Heavenly Sword.

Anyone who hasn't played Uncharted 1 yet reading reviews on Uncharted 2 deserves it to be honest.

It's been 2 years. Anyone who had any interest whatsoever in the story of Uncharted: Drakes Fortune knew Eddie died.

UC2 was the reason i purchased a ps3 slim (i was a 360 only owner for 3 years), I just beat UC1 last week, and let me tell I thought UC1 was great, but UC2 is classic.

UC2 (i'm just talking single player here, I've been playing the demo, and am waiting for tuesday to fire up the real multiplayer) is the best game of this console generation, hands down. Every chapter outdoes the last.

final word:

this game is as close to perfect as a game can get. there is no game on any console that comes close, the bar has been raised here folks.

my GOTY

Redlogic3264d ago

me too dude... i got a ps3 after owning a xbox360 since launch and I'm happy I did. I'm jealous you got to play UC2 already! UC1 was one of my favorite games this gen, and I'm beyond excited to fire up UC2.

likedamaster3264d ago (Edited 3264d ago )

I see GOTY for this game, as well. ND is finally getting some recognition for what I thought was a great PS3 game with Uncharted 1. Uncharted 2 ups the ante, raises the bar, and polishes/perfects everything for its sequel.

supremacy3264d ago

on board, well although uc2 is a classic on its own, you should also try....

Metal gear solid 4
Littlebigplanet
Infamous
Killzone 2
God of war collection
and god of war 3 coming next year.
Motorstorm
GT5
Resistance FOM
Demon souls is also a buy if you are into rpgs that is.

there are plenty of exclusives around and more to come, and again welcome on board.

Rowsdower3263d ago

i really enjoyed and currently own both Killzone 2 and Little Big Planet. I rented MGS4 but it just wasnt for me, I hadnt played a MGS since the first one, so I found the game a little boring. Nothing against the game, just was not for me, more of a splinter cell guy myself.
