Videogamer: Uncharted 2 Review

Videogamer writes:

"Uncharted 2 does so many things right, that its problems (a less than perfect cover system, some frustrating combat and unfortunate glitches) are easy to overlook. The single-player adventure packs in so many incredible moments that you'll be talking about it with friends for months, the multiplayer functionality is superb and rammed with content, and the whole game looks beyond anything you'll have seen before. Uncharted didn't quite make the grade as a classic, but Uncharted 2 should earn the series a place among the very best exclusives to hit the PlayStation."

Good score.Check out the demo guys.Its very good

gaffyh3771d ago

Is it up on the EU store or only US?

SuperM3771d ago

I kid. Excellent score for a more then excellent game

callahan093771d ago

Same score as ODST. Quite frankly, that's BS. Uncharted 2 deserves better.

SoapShoes3771d ago

More like ODST deserves worse...

callahan093771d ago (Edited 3771d ago )

How about these quotes from the review:

"This is the very definition of a triple-A must own title."

"Glorious set-pieces and production values that rival the best the system has to offer."

"At times it's hard not to just stop and stare at what's in front of you, marveling at the detail packed into every scene."

"Across the board Uncharted 2 screams quality."

"The single-player adventure packs in so many incredible moments that you'll be talking about it with friends for months, the multiplayer functionality is superb and rammed with content, and the whole game looks beyond anything you'll have seen before."

Sounds like a god damn 10 out of 10 me.

Just gained less of a name... :D

@1.3

Anything will sound glorious or crappy if you just pick and choose what you read.

KingsofOmega3771d ago (Edited 3771d ago )

Only a 9/10 are you having a fricken giraffe?

They are just trying to pull its meta score down.

Veneno3771d ago

Well I wouldn't call Videogamer.com a no name site, but they do have a vendetta against anything Sony.

@ callahan09

Jesus crist dude remove your fan goggles.
He gave some bad reasons too mate...

"Melee combat doesn't work quite as well"

"It's somewhat of a shame that the end of the game gets a little bogged down by too many snipers and enemies with RPGs"

"a less than perfect cover system, some frustrating combat and unfortunate glitches"

Allthough it is nit picking to my eyes you can't say that in this review they gave it a score that didn't reflect what the wrote.

SuperM3771d ago

common guys. i can understand people complaining simply because almost every fricking game released these days are overrated. but a 9/10 is supposed to be really really good.

Instead of people whining about a game not getting 10/10 id rather hear some complaining about reviewers generally giving games way to high score so that when a game that truly stands out comes out it wont either have to be a 10/10 or just as bad as every other game.

In my opinion 10/10 should be reserved for the very very few really stand out games. Now Uncharted 2 might actually be that but hard to say before ive played it. But great games shouldnt get more then an 8/10. To get a 9/10 it would have to excell, and as ive said for a 10/10 it must be something truly special.

DMason3771d ago

You guys are really debating a 9/10 review? Wow, since when is a 9/10 not a good score? Here's the facts: YOU havent played it yet. So in all honesty, YOU can't judge the game.

What kind of world are we living in where people can't accept a near perfect review. I can't imagine seeing what people will do if this game gets a 7/10 somewhere.

rucky3771d ago (Edited 3771d ago )

10/10? You mean like the perfect score given to the buggy GeOW2 by the same site and same reviewer.

@ Guntrol:

Don't give me that "fan goggles" bull crap. You know as well as I do that every game ever made has flaws. This game is no exception. The point is, when you go and say things like:

"This is the very definition of a triple-A must own title"

And you specify the sheer longevity, quality, and value of the product by saying:

"The single-player adventure packs in so many incredible moments that you'll be talking about it with friends for months, the multiplayer functionality is superb and rammed with content, and the whole game looks beyond anything you'll have seen before."

Well, I think that means this game deserves the highest accolades. If this guy could ignore the serious faults in Gears of War 2 at that product's launch, and give that game a perfect 10, then there is absolutely no reason that Uncharted 2 shouldn't get a perfect 10. Gears 2 when it launched? The online was completely unplayable, the game still had the same glitches as the original, and you want to talk about a botched ending, oh man, talk about an anti-climactic, worthless final level and boss fight.

Ju3771d ago

I throw in my 2 cents here, too. 9/10/10 essential 9. Wondering. Not an average, I hear again.

Immortal Kaim3771d ago

A 9/10... 9/10.... You guys are farkin complaining about a 9/10...Jesus Christ I actually think some of you guys have mental problems. Absolutely pathetic.

ODST:9,8,9 Overall=9
U2:9,10,10 Overall=9????
U2 >>>>> ODST and yet U2 gets the same score as ODST
I really don't get these reviewers sometimes.

sajj3163771d ago

Don't want to play with flames ... but the math just doesn't make sense to me.

Microsoft Xbox 3603771d ago

That's what I call biased in my book. They seem to be more forgiving to 360 exclusives.

Simon_Brezhnev3771d ago

most gaming sites are forgivable to 360 exclusives

joydestroy3771d ago

yah, should've been a 9.5 at least

nycredude3771d ago

Yeah it seems like the media has been a bit more lenient with 360 exclusive and more harsh on Ps3 exclusives but IMO that is a good thing.

If you're judging a "pro" and an "amateur" on their performance naturally you will hold the "pro" to a higher standards thant he "amateur". This is probably a bad analogy but the Sony first party developers are really starting to make the other developers look like amateurs man. I mean Naughty Dog cooked this up in 2 years!!!!

Also if all Sony developers know that they are held to such high standards they will continue working harder to bring us all awesome games!!! All the media judge Ps3 exclusive harder cause they know they are capable of producing.

Christopher3771d ago

"Scores are out of 10. Overall score is not an average of the sub-scores."

I disagree with this being equal to Halo ODST as well, but 9/10 is a great score.

bjornbear3771d ago

9 + 10 + 10 = 29 / 3 = 9.66666667 which rounds off to 10...so yeah...

9 + 8 + 9 = 26 / 3 = 8.66666667 which also rounds off to a 9...

ODST = U2?...yeah sure ok fine what ever...*turns back to play another round of uncharted 2 beta MP*

This is an outrage, BLASPHEMY!!! :P :D

dreamcast3771d ago

RAWR! This is unacceptable!

Picnic3771d ago

The only thing that I'm concerned with with the Uncharted series is that Naughty Dog don't seem to want to increase the number of puzzles. It seems like from Resident Evil 4 onwards, extensive puzzle sections have gone out of fashion with games designers. I can understand that they may have done this to keep the action flowing in the style of a Hollywood adventure but I think that puzzles will help replayability.

nycredude3771d ago

Dude, I am not bashing but you probably haven't played the first Uncharted. Most people I know of who owns Uc1 have played it multiple times cause the game is flat out fun and never gets old.

Now the new one has coop and mp and cinema mode, not to mention "the best single player game Adam Sessler has every play!", and you complain about the puzzles?

Come on now!?

Christopher3771d ago

Puzzles are only a portion of the gameplay, not the whole game. Naughty Dog said you'd spend the same proportion of time doing puzzles in Uncharted 2 as you did in Uncharted.
