IGN: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves First Look

Naughty Dog is a filthy tease. Yesterday, the folks behind the company met with a plethora of videogame journalists, went over the story and details of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and even played through a level set in a bombed out section of Nepal. Yeah, the gameplay looked awesome and the graphics were somehow better than the crisp stuff we saw in Drake's Fortune, but when all that was said and done, Naughty Dog kept talking -- about the possibility of a helicopter shooting out the foundation of a building and Nathan having to navigate his way out of the crumbling structure while the enemies around him try and do the same thing; about fighting on top of a train as it curves and careens through the environment and Nathan having to adjust his balance and shots accordingly; about picking to either run through the train cars or shimmy along the roof. The developers talked about these OMG moments, but they didn't show them.

Prettiest graphics I've ever seen - the detail is mind-boggling. I imagine that the controls and story-line will be as slick as the last one too.

Very, very, very excited to play this.

i cannot wait to get this game!!!!!!!!!

PS3 delivers again. The first Uncharted is one of the best games this gen, IMO, right up there with Mass Effect, MGS4, and LBP. It had a FANTASTIC storyline with some of the funniest and most believable dialog I've every experienced in a game, and it was just plain fun.

Here's to you, Naughty Dog. Day 1 purchase for me (not that I was on the fence about it...)

i see what you did there with the 'S', but definitely agree with you that i CAN NOT wait for this game, but it makes me wonder if co-op will be limited only to Nathans' quest, or if you (as chloe, or 'them') can have a separate adventure that will lead you to some point where the two meet up again.

meepmoopmeep5233d ago

it was suppose to mean Oh My Smurf... heheh (no seriously)

but yeah, Uncharted 2 is probably my most hyped for game of 2009.
i simply loved the first one. played it at least 15x.

i cannot wait to get this next one.

Naughty Dog FTW!

Max Power5233d ago

i figured it was the "unholy one", because this is so badass.

meepmoopmeep5233d ago

true, true, it is totally badass and does fit in

fanboi hater5233d ago

This game seems simply amazing and according to the gametrailers article .. maybe even co-op. Woo Woo. It is gorgeous and i trust naughty dog above just about every developer. Uncharted 1 is in my top 3 favs if not my top. Can't wait for this game.

I trust ND will once again WOW the world with Uncharted2! I also totally love the 1st and have played it like 6 times! (although less than half of meepmoopmeep!) this is the instant day 1 purchase for me since I knew that it was coming just because the 1st one is so awesome and ND seems keeping their magic touch in the 2nd one! yeah, I'm yet to play it but the trailer on the train is as catchy as those found in the 1st one! Drake is as beliveable as a real character I totally love him! I hope they can announce the release date already!

Those cannot be in-game screen shots. Holy Sh!t. I knew Uncharted 2 was going to look good, but dam. And this game still have several more months of development.

Raz5233d ago

Totally. Getting. This. Game.

Panthers5233d ago

I would go as far as to say this looks better than KZ2. At least realistically speaking. Not technologically.

The chick looks HOT.

Hit agree and an Australian woman will magically appear and wrap her legs around you.

Hit disagree for this guy:


That hairy man sure looks yummy. He reminds me of my dad.

UVBEENHALOWNED5233d ago (Edited 5233d ago )

OMG! Is this all the progress the game has made, doesnt even look better then the first. Weak, Sony. But the chick's butt is bootylicious!

Graphics Whore5233d ago

Can't tell if your stupid or just blind.

TheHater5233d ago

Fishy Fingers5233d ago

TheHater5233d ago
