Play Magazine writes: "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is a spectacular video-game. It's an interactive big-budget Hollywood movie, suffused with the soul of a pulp adventure novel. Drama, romance, and action fill every virtual inch of Uncharted's ten-plus hours, and the environment is rendered in stupidly gorgeous detail. The settings are well-researched, and the level design is evenly laid out, implying path without directing it. The music is satisfying-a well-paced mix of familiar film score hits and World beats. The animation is unlike any game I've played before, with hundreds of unique actions melded together into a rigorous flow. And though the game features a paint-by-numbers plot with few surprises, the characters which populate the world of Uncharted are well-written and exceptionally well-acted. The dialogue crackles with mirth and life. And the multiplayer offers endless variation on the Uncharted move set, by pitting the player against others just like him. This game is sugar."
