TheGo: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Review

Honestly, TheGo was trying to find major flaws in Uncharted 2 to prove that all the hype was not worth it, but ended up enjoying it instead. There aren't any major flaws that hinder an otherwise orgasmic gaming experience. The opening scene of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is not comparable to Indiana Jones' chasing boulder scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark, but it's still pretty damn awesome.

Awesome :)

Nice review btw :)
(still reading through it) lol

'I could go on and on talking about Uncharted 2 but I might let something slip and ruin it for the sad and pathetic people who haven't bought the game yet. No review could describe the different levels of emotion felt while playing Uncharted 2. The word "near-perfection" is the closest thing describing Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.'

ouch.. that hurt =/ sad...and .. pathetic..
well i guess I am after all I am playing demons Souls a game for masochists :)

near perfection. awesome

Mezt_up2987d ago

It actually just got bumped up another .5 points. It does put it up there in the elite games that come out on a certain system in a particular year. Near perfect, but not quite there.

lol *edits out the last part then*
Either way, its a great score. honestly weird to see the score jump that fast o_O

"is Uncharted 2 really a Megan-Fox-in-Transformers superb game or did it benefit from rather weak competition this year?"
hmm.. *looks back*
Killzone 2
inFamous
Forza 3
Demon Souls
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
Fallout 3 (GOTY edition.. but still)
LBP (GOTY edition again >.<)
Halo ODST (cant leave this one out for obvious reasons)
Brutal Legend (or so it looks like)
Call of duty: Modern Warfare 2 (thats pretty big competition right there)
could go on.. but got a brain freeze lol

So.. imma go with Megan Fox in a transformer game lol :)

Mezt_up2987d ago

Killzone 2 is worth a shout.

Forza 3 pulls up short imo, but im a Gran Tourismo fan..might just be bias

Demon's Souls is very good, but possibly not great. Havn't given it a big enough chance yet. It seems to only appeal to a certain type of gamer

Brutal Legend we are reviewing next up, will find out

Modern Warfare 2 is likely to be amazing as well

I don't think he was taking GOTY editions into account

Halo ODST = pile of crap

So yeah. Either way...maybe a bit too big a call as far as the weak competition goes....but if he thinks that this game stands out...then thats always a good sign.

WildArmed2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

Aye, got that picture down.
But I'd say every1 is in for quite a ride this fall.
Alot of great games.. with games like Assassin's Creed 2 and Bayonetta still waiting in line for reviews :)

oh and i agree with Halo ODST being... mediocre lol
Forza 3 got solid reviews so i'll give it that much. I'm not much of a racer though.
oh and please do give DS a try.
Its the best game i've played all year. (havnt try U2 yet ofc)
(oh.. and i kinda found inFAMOUS to be more fun then K2 but thats just me i guess)

oh.. and RE5 n SFIV def. deserves a shout out ^^

Mezt_up2987d ago

Assassins Creed 2 has a heap of potential. Just like the first one. However lets hope they have learnt their lesson. It just wasn't quite up to scratch. Just wasn't overly fun after the first 5 hrs. Expecting big things from Bayonetta.
I thought inFamous was just that...a fun game...but there was too much that missed the mark to make it a truly good game. I look forward to a possible sequel or another game by sucker punch as they showed a fair bit of talent

Which was a small random Gamestop on ventura out here in Tarzana, CA (Los Angelesish area). I'd say only about 15-20 people were there, nothing huge at all. But there was one specific person there who kinda made this launch a little different from all the rest in the US.

F'ing Christophe Balestra, Co-President of Naughty Dog

He was kind enough to sign my copy and grab a quick photo with me. This should give you a strong idea of how cool Naughty Dog is. I still can't believe they showed up to a random little gamestop on a midnight launch!

There was also another lead designer there but I forget his name :\ Both of them were cool as hell though. That's got to be thee most random and coolest midnight launch I've ever been to haha.

ThanatosDMC2987d ago (Edited 2987d ago )

Wow, that's weird to play a game and look for flaws first... oh well, at least he forgot about his initial intent and just enjoyed the game.

Getting the game today once im done with my classes and exam at 4pm. Yup, buying it at Fry's for $49.99. I really hope they still have copies left!

any reviews of Uncharted 2 yet, I don't want to know anything about the game until I play it. The same goes to MW 2. I recommend you guys to do the same! =)
