Martin Robinson from IGN UK writes: "It's unfortunate that the gameplay doesn't scale the heights of the production values, for while the gunplay is solid its relentlessness becomes weary towards the finale. But any misgivings aren't enough to derail the immensely enjoyable rollercoaster ride and Uncharted 2's wealth of character easily overcomes our gripes. As a spectacle it's without compare, its epic vistas and rip-roaring set pieces combining with writing and pacing of a quality that's alien to most videogames, helping to create one of this generation's most charming adventures."
A minimal front-end, but when it's in full-flow the lack of intrusion underlines the game's cinematic credentials.
Quite simply the best looking game around, with impressive tech matched by excellent art design.
The guns and grenades do what you expect them to, but it's Nolan North and co. who steal the show.
It doles out its parts with wit, but each element fails to wow in isolation.

The multiplayer is more than generous, as is the single player's 12 hour running time.
