Uncharted 2 is cliff hanging fun (The Sun Review)

The Sun describes:

"Like the treasure you seek, Uncharted 2 is solid gold and worth going to the ends of the world for PS3 owners.

Xbox 360 owners, it's time to turn green with envy."

This games story is epic! Its like an Indiana Jones movie! But it lasts like 9 hours so far and i ain't done! lol

renegade5160d ago

Yep but not the last Indiana Jnes Movies it was garbage.

PimpHandHappy5160d ago

took 10.5 hours for me on my first run and i only had some hard times at the end when the enemies started using RPG's in mass. GREATNESS

not to blow my horn but im pretty good and i had some challenges on normal.... im about a hour into my 2nd run on hard

farhsa20085160d ago

rmedtx8885160d ago

lol, Farsha208.. that was funny. I'm playing the game and I'm amazed. Fantastic graphics, awesome game-play. I just love it. I'm sure it will be game of the year.

This is now I tackled DRAKE'S FORTUNE:
First play-through on 'normal'
Second play-through on 'easy' to find all the treasure and unlock all the combat related trophies
Third play-through on 'hard'
Fourth play-through on 'crushing'

And I'm still not bored with it, revisting the game all the time. I expect to get as much mileage from AMONG THIEVES... It's a genuinely startling (in a good way) game that deserves to have every tiny detail studied.

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_Mal1308d 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.

P_Bomb1308d ago (Edited 1308d ago )

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.

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.

Profchaos1309d ago (Edited 1309d 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

Rimeskeem1309d ago

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

Movefasta19931308d 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.

goldwyncq1344d ago

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