GameOver writes: "Everything. From the captivating story and believable characters, to the thrill-a-minute gameplay, to the gorgeous visuals and superlative audio, down to the surprisingly robust multiplayer suite, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is a near flawless experience. Let's take a look at some of the highlights, shall we?
Among Thieves stays true to the original Drake's Fortune in that gameplay is comprised primarily of cover-based shooting, acrobatic platforming and puzzle solving, except here they're executed even better. Shooting is a much tighter affair, featuring an expanded arsenal to go along with a new grenade-tossing mechanic. Hand-to-hand combat, which was previously a weak point, is considerably stronger this time around. Nathan has so many more ways to take down enemies using melee, and there's more opportunity to use stealth to whittle down the number of enemies in a given scenario."
