Giant Bomb: Uncharted 2 Review

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is unafraid to be exactly what it is: a big, rollicking summer popcorn flick of an action game, a finely honed piece of thrill-a-minute pop entertainment. There are no pretensions toward dramatic gravitas or new gameplay tricks, just a relentless drive to be as exciting, larger-than-life, and fun at every moment as it can possibly be. And you know what? At meeting that particular goal, this is the single most successful game I've ever played.

bots, where's flopza 3 score going? DOWN

i was so close to beating demon's souls tonight.. i guess killing the final boss will have to wait about 2 weeks or how long it take to get platinum in Uncharted 2.

is there really bonus cash if you have a Uncharted 1 platinum?

Bill Gates3203d ago

Well, there you have it BABOONS.....AAHAAHAHHAHHAHA

Uncharted > BABOONS

WildArmed3203d ago

the N4G score just shot up from 9.6 to 9.7 :)

Information Minister3203d ago

Don't get too carried away. Edge is probably still trying to figure out how to spin things in order to give the game a low score.

frnkyl3203d ago

It would probably go like this, "Uncharted 2 is so good, I couldn't stop playing it for days, causing me to lose my job and ruin my social life. -5! 5/10"

iamtehpwn3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

LOL. So true. They've given such games Killzone 2, and Even long ago, back in the PS2's early days, Final Fantasy X a 7/10.

I'm sorry, but if you give Killzone 2 and Final Fantasy X a low rating, You should be playing "where did my testicles go", not great Games.

jmare3203d ago

You forgot "It's not original" 7/10

sonarus3203d ago

fanboy obsessions with score is annoying. Can't wait to pick up my copy tomorrow tho:D

SnuggleBandit3203d ago

you forgot bu bu bu teh footprints!!

MerkinMax3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

The average should round up to 98 on Metacritic. Why is it still at 97?

EDIT: Nevermind. I messed up, it's at 96.808. My bad.

leeger3203d ago

because your calculation is wrong.

na2ru13203d ago

over Uncharted 1 and its gun battles. They concealed it as tedious and difficult. Not a difficult game, really.

STICKzophrenic3203d ago

Any word on when Edge's review will go up?

Also, made this using a screenshot I took from MP demo, which I wish was still up right now. :-(

kws10653203d ago

Is Edge left? I am so expecting to see it...in many means.

Amp3203d ago

"With less than a week to go until launch, Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 2: Among Thieves currently ranks as Metacritic’s highest-rated PS3 exclusive game to date. You’ll find our review in E208, out October 27" That was in their recent interview with ND. Gives them plenty of time to talk to Shane from GT and screw the score up.

theEnemy3203d ago

-Too colorful -.5
-Not original (Copied from GT) -.5
-Not enough weapons -.5
-Too good to be true -.5
-Not on the 360. -1

7/10

dreamcast3203d ago

Ugh.. did EDGE really say that? I hate when established review mags/sites reference metacritic.

Xbox Avatars Shoe3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

Edge will find a way to bring the average score down to 7.9

Also, it's funny how there haven't been any 360 fanboys commenting in the U2 review articles :)

This is probably why:

Syronicus3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

EDGE - "Uncharted 2 brings so much variety to the table that it becomes overwhelming at times. Though I smiled through the entire game, the level of fun was enough to bring a grown man to his knees thus painfully rousing my gout."

- 6/10

Yeah, EDGE sucks ballz.

TheDeadMetalhead3203d ago

@1.10 - "Any word on when Edge's review will go up?"

Hopefully never. Wishful thinking, I know. >.>

I'd have to reach to offer any significant criticisms of this game, because none readily present themselves. You might end up ducking behind the wrong cover or grabbing the wrong handhold once in a while, I guess. (There, are you happy?) Naughty Dog set out with a very specific goal in mind, and in focusing intently on that goal, they blew right past it. Uncharted 2 is a sublime example of how to make a great action game, the result of fantastic execution on every aspect of the game's design and development. It's the best, most memorable game I've played in a long, long time.

Relientk773203d ago

xcox3203d ago
