With their latest game, Naughty Dog Inc. manages to offer a true sense of adventure, the kind normally found only in books. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves delivers breath-taking locales of such rich detail as to be poetically descriptive. The dynamic soundtrack, composed to touch upon the music of many cultures, has a beautiful way of always hinting at what is to come, and the voice-acting, so pitch-perfect, gives you the feeling that you're always inside the character's heads no matter what is going on. While other games try to keep you ever-distracted and always under stress, Uncharted 2 has the pace of a confident storyteller, giving you the time to take it all in, while still keeping your heart pounding with urgency. The result is the kind of trip where, once you reach the end you'll want to immediately head back to the beginning to start all over again.
