MSN: Uncharted 2 Review

These special little touches, combined with the varied gameplay mechanics, improved AI and gorgeous graphics all come together to make Uncharted 2 an unmissable single-player game. Throw in the multiplayer features and you've got a game that'll keep you coming back for months. (PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves) 5/5

Uncharted 2 the highest rated game of this generation.

No even Microsoft will deny it's awsome.

How I'd love to work for Naughty Dog right now... with a nice break some great reviews and then starting another awsome game project.

Grand Theft Auto 4 has a 98 average at metacritic.
leeger  +   2239d ago
yeah, GTAIV has a 98 average in Metacritic, which imo, and i know a lot of people will agree whether PS3/360 fanboys, doesn't deserve a score that high, GTAIV is the most overrated game OF ALL TIME.

@ leeger
I agree, Grand Theft Auto is fun.. but in terms of quality it is extremely overrated.

It is the only game on my PS3 that has graphic artifacting. It is also my worst looking PS3 game. :P

Plus the online is completely screwed up, the ranks reset for no apparent reason and the game crashes all the time.
bigjclassic  +   2239d ago
Its not even the highest rated anything this gen
Highest multiplat: GTA4
Highest rated console exclusive: Super Mario Galaxy

on both metacritic and gamerankings.
Sorry 2 burst your bubble.

But i know this is going to be fun to play, Uncharted 1 was so well done.

@ bigjclassic

Whether it deserves it or not, its there. BTW: Who cares if U2 beats it or not? U need a game to trample another in review scores to decide if u wanna buy it or not? What?

Metacritic is for:

1. Fanboys

2. People who are noobs in gaming and don't know wats good and wats not and need the opinion of someone else in numerical form to justify a purchase.

Microsoft Network says -
Go buy Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (only available on the PS3)
Lifendz  +   2239d ago
I don't need the highest meta score to appreciate quality
and anyone that does it nuts. If 360 fanboys want to deflate the success and rave reviews that game has gotten because some other game has a higher meta average than whatever, it's a shame they're going to miss out on this game.
mrv321  +   2239d ago
I used this sites Aggregator, I didn't check the Wii section.

I was allways brought up to think more data usually means better average. So N4G wins, plus the scores seem to be closer to a middle point when compared to Metacritic.

I didn't check Wii games, but now I have Uncharted 2 has the highest average score of any game released this generation.

On a personaly not I believe GTA IV is a good game, it's certainly built well and it's a fun game but not a 10/10 as so many reviewers claimed.

GTA4 was a 9.0/10 at best. Uncharted 2 actually deserves its score.
bjornbear  +   2239d ago
Well guys
I use metacritic in one way only:


To me if its Green, its good

yellow its ok

red stay away from it

Number in metacritic...not reliable ever
table  +   2239d ago
Am I the only person who thought GTA4 was awesome? Of course it is probably a little overrated but I think that it derserved alot of those 10/10s. I liked the game more than San Andreas... *ducks for cover*
Sarcasm  +   2239d ago
The difference between Uncharted 2's 10/10s and GTA IV's 10/10s, is that Uncharted 2 deserves them.
badz149  +   2239d ago
the media was jumping the guns too early with GTAIV
now they have problems to rate a lot of games because of that! GTAIV was nothing special except for it being a huge and quite detailed open world! for a sandbox game, inFAMOUS IMO beats it by miles with awesome environment and more variety of missions unlike GTAIV's "go there, kill him!" and "go there, win the race!" type of missions! more important is the FUN factor which the latter really excels in!

Uncharted 2 is different! it best Uncharted 1 which is still regarded among the best graphic and art-style on consoles and is doing much more! it deserves all the praise!
ArchangelMike  +   2239d ago
Uncharted 2 is basically the Highest rated exclusive game on next gen platforms. Beating all of the xbox360 exclusives - including Gears of War 1 and 2, Halo 1, 2 3 etc etc. ( The only other next-gen game to compete is Mario Galaxy on the Wii (97)- but we all know the wii is not in the same league)
koga_hiroyuki  +   2239d ago
Super Mario Galaxy is awesome! Regardless of console. It will take a seriously incredible game to beat it.

And I think Uncharted 2 will be that seriously incredible game!
militant07  +   2239d ago
i disagree, my favorite genre by far is JRPG, so LOST ODYSSEY will top uncharted 2 or GeOW2 ( I dont like to comapre JRPG to other games though )
thegood33  +   2239d ago
I actually think the first Gears of War should be rated higher. When that game came out it just destroyed every other game out there. I still think it's better then Gears 2.
user9422077  +   2239d ago
I can't wait to play this on Friday (Europe) Yes I know :(
marcindpol  +   2239d ago
lol was expecting 7/10...
Arnon  +   2239d ago
Do people actually think that Microsoft and Sony hate each other or something?
table  +   2239d ago
It's just what ps3 gamers have come to expect from major american media outlets and their pro 360 bias(Forbes,CNET for example). With this being microsoft it is only natural to expect the worst.

"Do people actually think that Microsoft and Sony hate each other or something? "

Of course not.

Sony doesn't hate Microsoft, Microsoft hates Sony.
fooflex  +   2239d ago
Like to make a point!
First I off I've been playing the game, and its insanely good, just amazing.

Second, yes if MSN Microsoft's own site can give Sony's biggest holiday exclusive a perfect score, can we please stop accusing MS of paying off reviewers to give Sony exclusives low scores. They ripped GameTrailers apart for it getting a 9.3, saying they took a bribe from MS, that's absurd. And I hope this proves it!

Dude, rational thought and objectivity need not apply.
MaximusPrime  +   2239d ago
hoping to get this by thursday (day before UK's release)

Im currently playing Naughty Dog's classics, Crash Bandicoot 1,2 and 3 (all PS1 games) on my PSPgo ;)

My brother borrowed my Uncharted 1. He's playing it non stop.

Cant wait for Uncharted 2.

klashawnd  +   2239d ago
Trying to figure out what is the lowest score possible they could give UC2 so that the Metacritic ranking drops to 96 lol.

@ klashawnd;
By now they would have to give it a -4 for that to happen; so expect a -12.

Where you at you silly little bots? even M$ knows this game blows anything on the 360 out of the water lol.

K.. UC2 is a GREAT game.. that's agreed on, but you PS3 fans can't seem to stop. You love pointing out UC2's metacritic score, but then when someone points out that GTA4 got a higher score, its overrated. You guys do this for every site out there too that does reviews..

I do find it funny that PS3 fans are usually the loudest about what an overrated game GTA IV was. My guess is that it started seeding the moment they announced exclusive DLC for the 360.

Itching to grab a copy and feed it to my phat 60gig. Longest week in history!
Torkith  +   2239d ago
Hmmmm, Most of the reviews I've listened to and read said the game is about 12-16 hours long. My save file shows 46% complete with 4 Hours and 27 Minutes in. Maybe I'm just speeding through the game, not sure. I'm playing on Hard, oh well even if I'm 46% complete, this game is unbelievable. Nothing I've played comes close the the single player experience this game offers. (Except maybe the last couple hours of MGS4)

Uncharted 2, definitely deserves the scores it's receiving.

I'll go and play dragon rising on the 360. I guess we 360 owners can rely on superior MP games. for ever 1 exclusive ps3 game we get 10 superior multi plat games.
ZOMBIEMAN1  +   2239d ago
Rage show me your Rage it's delicious it's as delicious as the body of a virgin teenage girl muahahaha . it's sad really when you have to rely on multiplatform games that slightly by 1 pixel look better or the rare noticeably better looking multiplatform games sad really because in the end PS3 owners can still buy it "ohhh my version got more grass on screen" so what i'm not going to notice that when i'm playing it. really sad dude and if your not down with that i got 2 words for ya, SUCK IT !!! DX
N4G king  +   2239d ago
its funny
when it comes to multiplats its all about graphics
but in exclusives NOOOOOOOOO its all about games play just like forza and GT

and thats pathetic
because bo matter what
PS3 owners can still play the game no matter what
and now 90% of the multiplats becomes identical

so yes you fail

Wsup Xbutts OF N4G!!!! Hi y'all doing out there?
Ask yourself if you even care about Games?
Does Uncharted 2 Hurt?
How about Demons Souls Combat System?
Maybe Killzone 2 is Hardcore enough for you?
Or is it Socom confrontations Quick & Deadly action that burns you?
How about metal gears online thinking stealth shooter that you're missing ?
Or the words Big Team Battle makes you wish it was as big as Resistance2 or
Could it be creating your own levels as deep as LittlebigPlanet has you wondering ?
Is it HOME you want so you can tell everyone you're launching ninja gaiden sigma 2 & facebook your HOME pictures?
Was it the feeling of not being able to try new things like inFAMOUS?
Tell me what it's like to be a XBUTT?

Is it really fun on xboxlive ?
Isn't PSN so much better?


Could it be Mororstorm?
Is is gran turismo 5?
Heavy Rain ?

Please don't tell me you're waiting for . . . Gulp . , . Natal?
