OPM to Have First UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Review

PS Blog writes: We're less than a month out from the launch of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves and we're starting to see reviews come in. We just received the November issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine in the studio which has the first world review of UNCHARTED 2. Subscribers should have this issue in the mail any time now and, if you don't have a subscription, you can pick up a copy from newsstands in the next couple of weeks.

Cracking open the issue, which features UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves as its cover, we were totally thrilled to see that our game received a perfect 5/5 AND the Editors' Choice award for the month! We've been working incredibly hard over the past two years to make UNCHARTED 2 the best game we've made yet and we're all smiles to hear that we're not the only ones who think we've got something really great on our hands.

You'll have to pick up your own copy to read the ten full pages of UNCHARTED 2 details, but in the meantime here's an image of the cover to serve as a preview:

they gave it like a 21/20

JL4339d ago

^No, that 21/20 was another magazine. A French magazine: PSM3. This one states in the article they gave it 5/5.

11 360s and counting4339d ago

I hope this game comes with clean underpants. Were gonna need em!!!!!!!!!!!!

dustgavin4339d ago

The PS3 is in 'demolish mode' at this point. All these exclusive games within the first 3 years with quality that is unsurpassed by any other console.

I would love to see the 360 fans attempt to spin this one.

ZBlacktt4339d ago

well, I think it's clear to say GOTY's are going to be on a blu-ray disc from now on. So will the runner up game(s).

Oh Hell Yeah!, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves = one of the best games of all time!

It just doesn't stop man, PS3 is on a roll this year, heck, I don't its gonna stop anytime soon neither especially in 2010.

kingOVsticks4339d ago

this game is really going to be something big. I knew this game was going to be a knockout but didn't know its was going to 1 hit KO the gamers. I feel a storm a brewing...

meepmoopmeep4339d ago (Edited 4339d ago )

i just want the game already,

embargo should have been until a week before release, dammit

Vicodin4339d ago (Edited 4339d ago )

meepmoopmeep: "biased"?

The Official Playstation Magazine actually had a hard core Xbox fans working as the Editor-in-Cheif and doing reviews:

OMG, just checked. That nutcase is still the 'editor'. LOL!

Lifendz4339d ago

but I will have this one on day one. Sorry to gush but when I think about how much entertainment and functionality I've gotten out of my PS3, and what's to come, and the can only say this to Sony:

meepmoopmeep4339d ago

you must be new here and don't know me, :)

yes i edited my comment, it used to say "biased :O "

Death4339d ago

I will be playing uncharted 2 and Halo 3: ODST. If you want to feel bad, feel bad for the people that think they are going to actually win something if one game scores better than the other or gets "Game of the Year".

josuttis4339d ago


Sony not only isn't being sleazy and sending out 900 bribe 'gift bags' to reviewers, the first review of their one of their biggest exclusives of 2009 has a foaming at the mouth Xbox Sony/Playstation hater as the head editor???

And the game is good enough to still get a 5/5 Game of the Month and called one of the greatest games in history?

Epic Win Sony.

AEtherbane4339d ago

will it sell less than ODST, yes, because XBOX360 has a larger instal base than the ps3, and god knows everyone who owns an xbox will buy ODST. it doesnt mean at all though that ODST is the better game, besides, ODST will mean nothing when MWF2 comes out.
If you own a ps3, you should buy this game, or first, rent Drakes Fortune then this. Its going to be a good game,no question, just, its looking like it deserves a buy.

Sarcasm4339d ago (Edited 4339d ago )

For the record, they gave Lair a 5/10 and Resistance 2 an 8/10.

Yeah sure it's a PS magazine, but they aren't biased.


Here are the other reviews

Infamous 8/10
Resistance 2 8/10
Haze 5/10
Lair 5/10
GT5P 8/10
Motostorm Pacific Rift 6/10
Socom Confrontation 7/10
Singstar 8/10

And come on folks, judging on the previews and hands-on time with Uncharted 2 and given the pedigree of Naughty Dog, as well as the amazing experience with Uncharted 1. Who the hell thinks Uncharted 2 wouldn't be a 10/10 anyway?

Aclay4339d ago

I'm anticipating a lot of 9-10/10 scores for Uncharted 2... any other site/magazine that scores it lower than a 8 *cough* EDGE *cough* is just looking for hits, because Uncharted 2 is nothing but Supreme quality.

"but the saddest thing is it will probably sell less than ODST"

I don't give a damn whether Uncharted 2 sells less than ODST, Halo is the Xbox flagship franchise, so what do you expect? Uncharted 2 will definitely sell more than the first, and that alone is more than enough to be considered a success.... And one thing for sure, Uncharted 2 is definitely pushing the bar a LOT more than Halo has this gen.

cmrbe4339d ago (Edited 4339d ago )

U2 maxes out the rating system.

Edit: @Marcelles. Money is not everything. GH devs spend less work on GH and yet they get more money than most other harder working devs, same with wii sports etc etc.

Now my question is. Who do you think people respect more?. GH devs or ND?. Who do you think will have better job prospects in the development community?.

Speaking relative is not right because even if Bungie earns more. ND could still earn alot of money AND enhance their reputation as well. I am talking about millions here. My point is, even if Bungie earns more dosn't mean that ND will be out in the streets looking for new jobs. Uncharted will sell well and it will get ND lots of money, not as much as bungie but still alot of money.

Life is not fair. Not everyone will get what they deserve. Some are just in the right place in the right time. Thats life.

Marcelles254339d ago

because they made odst in less then a year and ND put REAL HARD WORK IN TO IT

and they wont make more money then bungie

badz1494339d ago

we're going to get the GUARANTEED awesome Uncharted 2 in less than a month and the review is great! why the need to talk about ODST or even anything else unrelated things? shouldn't we just rejoice for getting this gem?

Dutch Boogie4339d ago

Meh Uncharted 2 was deemed GOTY by many of us realistic gamers several months ago. The delusional people where the ones saying otherwise.

randomwiz4339d ago (Edited 4339d ago )

I preferred the 21/20, although, this review is pretty good considering past ps3 exclusive reviews on this site

I wonder what it feels like when your a developer and your game gets a 21/20 by a reputable magazine.

I'm waiting on EDGE to ruin metacritic's 101 for this game.

Sarcasm4339d ago

I also have to add, Uncharted 2 is great and all but Beyonce had the greatest video of ALL time!!!

MerkinMax4339d ago

I get Halo 3 ODST first then the beast which is Uncharted 2 followed by both Ratchet and Clank or Forza 3. This is a great year for 'gamers'. Love my 360 and PS3 and now my new PC. A real gamer doesn't talk crap about the console they don't own, they enjoy what they have and that is why I am happy I can enjoy it all now.

NeoBasch4339d ago

This just confirms what I've been saying all this time. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was destined for greatness. I remember when it was first revealed close to four years ago. The tech demo wasn't overly impressive, but the underlying mechanics and focus gave pause. It wasn't that this was ND's version of Indiana Jones or the equivalent of a male Tomb Raider, there was something special here. You could feel it. There was something about it that just made it click.

It's hard to explain: the average Joe in over his head, the damsel that preferred saving others opposed to being rescued, the incredibly intense gunfights despite the sun warming your back, the half tucked shirt. It just clicks. I can't explain it. Nevertheless, I knew there was something special here.

Then I realized, THIS is the next generation; the first game to successfully merge game design and the cinematic formula present in some of the best movies of all time. This is our defining franchise. The one we will look back on for generations to come. Cherish it: PS3 and 360 gamers alike. There may never be a better game. Until Uncharted 3 that is. This is a game that just has to be played. No exceptions!

Everyone better have this preordered. Mark you calendars ladies and gents. Just 29 days left. 29!

Tony999Montana4339d ago (Edited 4339d ago )

Can't wait for this game.

But why is everyone accusing EDGE of being biased? You do know they gave Littlebigplanet 10/10? Just because they speak there mind and don't conform to the same review criteria as others, you all hate them. In my opinion they have the most informative and intellectual games magazine in Britain.

N4GAddict4338d ago

I wonder if Uncharted 2 will be the best rated game in 2009.

You know the game is BEYOND EPIC when a reviewer breaks their rating system.
