Uncharted 2 improves on the original in almost every way. A solid gaming experience, and one that will rate among the very best PS3 games ever made.

Who wants to bet on how many more reviews people will submit for this game? Over or under 100? I'm going over. WE DON'T NEED MORE REVIEWS!!! We know this game is great. Find reviews for something else. A game where people are on the fence. They would be more helpful.

rdgneoz35255d ago

I don't know, there was that one review from a Euro site that gave it a 7/10 :P

Gee, I guess I'll have to make up my mind when I head down tomorrow to pick up my copy that I pre-ordered a while ago...

PixlSheX5255d ago

Difference between those 100 blog's reviews and this review, is that this is counted on meta.

BTW. Great Score ;D. Uncharted 2 is my GOTY already.

Ravage275255d ago

i just completed the game yesterday, and i'm thinking more about GotD here :p

Honestly this is the sort of game you wish it will never end, oh well i'll be playing online now then. Anywayzzzz -> Believe the HYPE, booooys! BEST SINGLE PLAYER GAME i've played hands-down and i really wonder if i'll see anything from this gen topping this.

PrimordialSoupBase5255d ago

Maybe somewhere within all the crappy game reviews someone might offer an interesting take on the game, which can only happen through more reviews. I'd gladly see over 100 - after all, only 5 percent of them will be worth reading (and that's generous).

Currently playing Drakes Fortune on crushing, next will be to replay Among Thieves, but I'm sure it still holds up today.

Recently re-platinumed 1-3. Uncharted 2 aged better than I even expected. I enjoyed it more now than I did a decade ago. It’s more polished than 1, tighter than 3 and Yemen in 3 was gorgeous. Shambhala out-prettied Ubar though. 60fps w higher res’ made for a damn good rerun.

Abnor_Mal1400d ago

Question: When you say Uncharted2 aged better than expected, are you talking about the original PS3 game or the remastered collection on PS4. I ask because I think that a remastered version of the game would look and play better than the original.

I doubt that the original ran at 60 frames, how many years old is the remastered collection anyway.

I need to replay the original trilogy along with the collection, not a fan of the collection trophy of beating levels in a set time and don't think the originals required that for platinum.

@abnor_mal
It’s true that the remasters have upped the resolution and given it 60fps, but the base game is the same. The art design and base textures/physics/ animations are the same yet still look contemporary. More-so than UC1 which isn’t as tight, or UC3 in some cases which I found a bit clunky in close quarters.

UC2 level design was a great evolution in bringing the verticality from the jungle into rural/urban settings while maintaining smooth animation transitions. Drake still moves better than the ginger in Star Wars Jedi. Outdoor areas are better lit.

UC2 also has more action and better pacing imo, which helps when replaying a game 10 years later. Kept me engaged.

You don’t need to time trial for platinum. They stuck the speedrun trophies in a seperate extended dlc category so have no fear.

MadLad1400d ago

I thought the originals were good, but not great. I understand that puts me in the minority here. That said, Uncharted 4 was freaking fantastic.

Profchaos1400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

Yeah I understand the hate for 4 prior to playing it I was firmly against it and felt like 3 wrapped things up already but now after playing it I think it was the best in the franchise.

Now I look back at two and I feel like I'm playing an on the rails shooter everything is so tightly scripted including the infamous train scene you simply can't make a mistake

Rimeskeem1400d ago

I think Uncharted 2 is a lot like AC2. Both games took the idea and basically improved it in every single way.

Movefasta19931399d ago

Uc2, AC2,Halo2, Soul calibur 2, Killzone 2, Infamous 2 , Dishonored 2 and a few more. The only negative thing I have against uc2, and imo it annoyed me,are the blue apes, uncharted 1 handled the super natural far better.

My favorite is the building collapsing on Uncharted 2.

goldwyncq1435d ago

The entire final chapter of The Lost Legacy is the best setpiece in the series and it wasn't even mentioned.
