Game Informer: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Review

Uncharted 2 is a masterstroke of game creation. This is the killer app PlayStation 3 owners have been waiting for, and I'd even be saying this without the outstanding competitive and co-op multiplayer (see sidebar). Given the complexity of the character relationships, I urge players to play the original game before venturing into the sequel. Some of the jokes and references fall flat if you don't have the knowledge of Nathan's previous exploits.

Uncharted 2 is a ringing testament to the power of both games and storytelling. It pulls you in, keeps you engaged, and concludes with a thunderous bang.

this was known already when Sony leaked a small part of the review in the Uncharted 2 Commercial,LOL.

really? Really funny if it was. I must have missed that part.

And to think that an excellent score of 9.5 will actually hurt this game's average among review sites is saying something...

Just finished uncharted 1 and I got to say... that game was way way better than I though it would be. It feels like a freaking movie and I swear my life to any 1 who doesn't believe me when i say this but, my mom said " is that a movie your watching ?" I was like lol no

Now I'm way more pumped for U2

"I don't give a crap what anyone else thinks now. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the best game of the 21st century so far and one of the best of all time."

I can agree with that. Will u also be getting Demon Souls and Modern Warfare 2?

thesummerofgeorge2482d ago

the meta score is still the same, I don't see how the average stays unaffected

WildArmed2482d ago

oh oh oh! i know!
No1 is ever gonna compare Uncharted to lara croft again =p
"From beginning to end, Uncharted 2 is a masterpiece, and a new standard in the action genre."
Awesome :)
Both reviews (including the second opinion) give it 10/10.

BAM there is it :)

"With the notable elimination of loading screens and no discernable difference between the cutscene and gameplay graphics"

Wasnt there a review complaining about the load times?

btw coz Imma MGS fanboy... I still vote David Haytor as the best voice actor ever =p

"This is the killer app PlayStation 3 owners have been waiting for"

U2 is definitely amazing, but there are other killer apps for PS3 that are only possible on PS3: MGS4, LBP, KZ2, Resistance etc.

HolyOrangeCows2482d ago

Even the ''second opinion'' review is a perfect score.

rockleex2482d ago

That was complaining about the loading screens? <_<

According to Game Informer:

"With the notable elimination of loading screens and no discernable difference between the cutscene and gameplay graphics"

Funny how there haven't been any 360 fanboys commenting in the U2 review articles :)

This is probably why:

I don't give a crap what anyone else thinks now. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the best game of the 21st century so far and one of the best of all time.

This has been a great decade of video-games, and Uncharted 2 has basically ended it with a bang!
I'm expecting God of War 3 and Mass Effect 2 to start the 10s off with a bang. :D
