ButtonMasher reviews the new PS3 exclusive - Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
I suggest you BABOONS sell off your crap 360 console now because there is NOTHING on the 360 worth playing....AHAHAHAHAHHAHAA.... HA
I'd say Bill Gates can be better than Peter North at this game. Do you want the challenge, Peter?
this is gettin ridiculous. UC2 GOTY confirmed http://forums.n4g.com/tm.as...
yup...two last hurdles gamespot and EDGE anything below nine=fail for this game(talking to you gamereactor and "long load times' lol they didn't even play the game)
Gamespot has been giving fair reviews ever since MGS4. My guess is that that EDGE will score the game same as Eurogamer.
"Understandably I was excited when the review code found its way to my doorstep, 5 hours later I realised I was still wearing my pyjamas and hadn’t showered, eaten, or brushed my teeth when my ride arrived. Sounds like its going to be a good game right? Either that or I have decided that personal hygiene simply isn’t my bag."
Man you people on here really are mindless morons. Has is ever occurred to you that this game may have some flaws with it, but instead of reporting them each reviewer HAS to say this game is perfect because of the backlash (i.e. loss of website credibility) that would come from you idiots if the game was not rated at a 10? Can't you all see that you (the gaming community) are the ones responsible for this game being a 10? Man talk about mindless robots. You all suck!

Moron back at ya, DominusRebellis.
Every game has flaws in it and yes that "has is" occurred to me (couldn't resist). Thanks for the update. But that doesn't seem to stop sites like Edge from dishing out some rather disproportionate scores to 360 games compared to PS3 games. You telling me that those flaws are only present in PS3 games? PS3 exclusive games mind you which, regardless of what you think about multiplats, are 99.9% of the time the superior games. Now if you or I have a preference for one console's games over the others then that's fine. It's our right as a consumer. But when a publication holds itself out there as being fair and unbiased (welcome to the O'Reilly No Spin Zone), I don't think we're precluded from critiquing a review when a) the aggregiate score for the game is substantially higher on other sites and b) that site/mag has a history of underscoring games on that console. Callahan did the research that I'm too lazy to do on Edge and it's astounding. Their track record speaks for itself. Now here's where I get all fanboyish. Were I in charge of Sony I would blackball them and Eurogamer. Whatever their beef if with Sony they need to let it go. Maybe that means firing some fanboys (see Gamespot, Kotaku, and 1up) or become an Xbox only mag.
says still day one buy for me and still game of the year over any game this year
The load times were only long on the initial load up, during the game its self I don't remember a single one.
of n/a GOTY confirmed!!! :-p
The influx of 10's pouring in for this game is incredible. The game will be a blast and anyone who deems to call themselves a gamer should get this game day 1.
Did I just read the cut scenes are so realistic that it takes way from the experience?
"Cinematic sequences are always touch and go, some (in my humble and uneducated opinion) go overboard with too many fancy pre rendered graphics making it so distantly removed (or improved) from the gameplay that it feels disconnected. Others have them occurring far too frequently, some use the in-game engine and camera for a more immersive and coherent experience, but might look like a steaming pile of the proverbial in comparison to its competition. Uncharted 2 strikes a balance in that it creates a unique visual method of story telling and drama"
The graphics aren't better than the gameplay though...
Installing PS3 and TV in my office to play this.
i cant bloody wait till this masterpiece gets released i dont usually buy games day one except for a very few selected titles. i usually wait till prices drop a little this however cannot wait and will be taking a chunk out of my wallet
A good honest review. I like these guys. If they gave it a seven I'd still appreciate their gamer-centric review. Not bad at all, buttonmasher.
...is brilliant which this review clearly conveys. However, this is yet another NZ gaming site failing NZ gamers with its review of multiplayer. I appreciate that its not quite there yet but what about what is there. What about the all too important, yet nearly always overlooked, lobby system!?! Living in NZ a good lobby system can make or break a multiplayer game. If you can't do local searches or list available games and your connection to them then more often than not lag will prevail. Given the small install based in NZ (and OZ) its important that those who do try the online are encouraged to come back and keep playing. Too much lag and players will move onto something else which just further exacerbates the problem. I hope Buttonmasher, and other NZ/OZ gaming sites, update their reviews to convey how good the lobby system is (or isn't) when the games hits retail and on-line activity increases. Finally, I really wish Buttonmasher would provide some sort of score chart to help provide some context to how the game compares (or not) to other games in the same genre.
This was a pretty damn funny and well written review. I would have LOL'd once or twice if I weren't far too cool for such shenanigans.
