The moment when you jump in the pool on the building was just priceless. I couldn't ruin it by saying what happens, but please do it if you missed it...

Caught me off guard, great moment :)

Ziriux3249d ago

That was easily one of the best moments in the game if not gaming.

koehler833249d ago

Agreed. Totally refreshing. No pun intended.

Whilst I agree that the dialogue in U2 is one of it's greatest achievements I wouldn't ever suggest that a perfect formula has been reached.

Not so long ago (1998) people thought that MGS had found the perfect formula with the obligatory cut scenes that have become much hated lately.

I believe there's room for many auters and styles of story telling in gaming just like there is in film.

Uncharted 2 had awesome storytelling. The story may not have been too deep, but the way it was told is second only to Bioshock or MGS4 this entire gen.

orakga3249d ago (Edited 3249d ago )

AND a trophy, too! =D

BTW, does ANYONE wonder where this Joe DeLia guy was when Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was released? The dialogue in UC2 is pretty much ON PAR with UC1, so something tells me this dude never played UC1.

I'm not hating on the article. I'm just hating on this guy's decision to pass on UC1 two years ago.

I love what he says when he goes swimming in the apartment pool. I got an in-game reward too.

ReservoirDog3163248d ago

Yeah, the pool part was great. Uncharted 2 had some of the best dialogue in all video games. The only game that had better dialogue is GTA IV and it's only better cause it's incredibly deep.

And I loved Sully's dialogue throughout.

Some of the best storytelling in any game ever, due in no small part to the amazingly well written dialogue and great voice acting.

Ziriux3249d ago

And the character true to life animations don't hurt.

Wolfmoonstrike3249d ago

I don't think the plot-line itself was good (about action movie good), but the characters blew me away. Honestly the voice-acting, body language, really helped sell the characters and the storyline on a whole. So though I believe the plot-line itself is a bit weak, I love the characters, even the evil ones.

Ziriux3249d ago

Out of all the things in this game I love the dialogue the most.

Ziriux3249d ago

Why don't 360 games, have great cutscenes in games, most 360 games have real time instead of cutscene which is not that great, only game that can pull it off is Splinter Cell's.

NMC20073249d ago

Dude, I am sick of hearing about this game now, I mean it's great, sure, but so many many many articles about it are just overdoing it, I don't think I have seen this many articles about a single game this gen.

Venatus-Deus3249d ago

Stop reading and commenting on them then.


chewmandinga3249d ago

of hearing about modern warfare 2?
about boycotts for anything and everything?
of random peoples "top 7" lists of "games they like/dislike"?

it is a pretty repetitive site...

Kakihara3249d ago

Yeah, thanks for the input, Jeff.
