12 months have passed since we crowned LittleBigPlanet our writers' game of 2008, and as your mousewheel has no doubt just informed you, Sony has made it two in a row. Having compiled votes and considered pleas from over a dozen staff and contributors, we can reveal that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is Eurogamer's Game of the Year for 2009.
Thanks Naughty Dog.
(Sorry Snake(MGS4), Drake(U2) is now my #1.) :P
naughty dog truly need to wrangle out a huge pay rise with sony
Uncharted 2 is an unstoppable force that can't be denied. It's winning ALL of the GOTY awards from just about ALL sites and mags. No game has ever won this many GOTY awards. Great job Naughty Dog and Sony. You both deserve it.
'All the same, Simon and Kristan's criticisms elsewhere today are all valid. The mechanics are old-fashioned - flashing hidden treasure, for goodness' sake, and clumsy and shallow combat - and at times it's second only to Ubisoft's flawed but well-intentioned 2008 Prince of Persia in holding your hand through grand platform puzzles, which you just as frequently ride along with as solve.'
Old-fashioned and your example is that the tressure flashes... stuff flashes on MW2 infact I promise you it's be hard pressed to find a game that doesn't draw your attention. Clumsy and shallow combat. What is he smoking.
The gunplay is for lack of a better word PERFECT as is the hand to hand. Having completed Gears 2 and Uncharted 2 the winner in my mind is Uncharted 2 for combat because your enemies go down quickly.
I honestly don't think there's been one site that hasn't given GOTY to UC2. Well, Gamespot gave demons souls GOTY.
