GamesRelay takes a look back at the many charms of Uncharted 2 and concludes that the game clearly shows the extra power of the PS3 along with the amazing talent of the Sony-owned Naughty Dog.
Popcorn, anyone? edit: lol, kettle corn FTW
This article is about 6 months Late. Edit @ above Orville Redenbacher or Pop Secret........(crunch)
Just made some Orville Redenbacher Kettle Korn.
Bah just another article for fanboy masturbation. Seems like some people need these kind of articles to reassure them or something. The game came out 6 months ago so why is this article only popping up now...? I think the wave of good 360 new has something to do with it.
Ha ha, look at the Xbox troll folks, isn't he cute! As for the game goes, it is only the truth and if you think what the author says is for masturbatory reasons then you sir are simply stupid. The game is gorgeous, get over it and buy a PS3 already.
"Bah just another article for fanboy masturbation. Seems like some people need these kind of articles to reassure them or something.

Perhaps to good 360 news isn't really all the good that you feel the need to come in here and one up yourself with stupid comments.
someone's certainly sour about UC2's achievements....that or he has ran out of games to play on his xbox and have to resort to jealous trolling on PS3-only articles
I agree the timing is kind of off, I would have waited till the 1-year anniversary of the game myself, but I feel the same way about Uncharted 2. I think a lot of people truly overlook a lot of the detail in the game and how much effort they took to make the world one that oozes with love and care. Sure, Killzone 2 may have some nicer lighting effects and nicer textures and God of War 3 may look great, but I believe that no one has taken as much care, both from a design and a technical level, to make their game with such small and large detail elements like Naughty Dog. IMHO, on the consoles there is no comparison to their overall effort and technical capabilities. This is why most upcoming FPS and TPS games on the PS3 are being compared to Uncharted 2, because it is the defining point for games going forward within its own genre. The way they do actor-based motion capture with the actual actors who voice the characters, it's this level of devotion and attention to detail that really shows you how much Naughty Dog wants to make this game the way they'd want to see and play a game and not just the way that gamers have been doing it up until then. Anyway, I'm 100% a Naughty Dog fanboy and I think it's fairly obvious to see why. Where other companies in the past have taken this much love with writing their game (Planescape: Torment), Naughty Dog has taken it to provide a visual and audio treat for all gamers. I won't say that their story is the best out there, but the way it's presented just makes it better and makes you enjoy it that much more.
Thanks For The Old News... move on...
Don't know what you mean... If you read the article it's pretty clear!
"The bottom line being that you owe it to yourself to play this game – titles like this only come around a few times in any generation and to miss them, well, you know the rest." Bullsh!t. How many great games have we had this generation? Way more than a few. I'm not going to name a whole list so I'll just say this, UC2 is like a Greek god and there are plenty of other god-like games released this gen chillin up at the top of Mount Olympus.
whats the ratio of gods(uncharted) to man (rouge warrior).
no, there are only two games of this calibre: MGS4 and Uncharted 2. These games are above all other games this gen, imo.
"no, there are only two games of this calibre: MGS4 and Uncharted 2. These games are above all other games this gen, imo." What about God of War 3? And even though they may not be able to compare visually I'd say Dragon Age Orgins (PC) and ME1 and 2 are top quality gameplay and story wise, well just story wise when it comes to the Mass Effect games. I know the title is talking about the difference between the power of the consoles, but the article itself is about the overall quality of the game and to say it's hardly unrivaled overall this gen just isn't true. There are plenty of games released this gen that will stick with gamers for decades to come.
I think only these games have that certain indefinable something.
Yeah maybe you're right. It just seemed like the author was putting UC2 up on a pedestal while just brushing off other great games like they never existed.
Mass Effect 1 and 2 certainly deserve to be up in the top games of this generation. They are simply amazing.
i totally agree with article look at splinter cell convection it s a piece of crap against uncharted 2 graphic
I guess GamesRelay have not seen the latest footage of Alan Wake
The gameplay or the recent cgi?
they have, its just that so much of it is in the dark
All you have to say is that? Lame attempt Only flaming No-1 was flaming this comment section Enough Is enough No articles about your console of Choice? This Article is About UC2 Hence the Title, you know Exclusives and Awesome Games like This one Deserve all the Praise Damn At least try to not be so obvious Really lame attempt, as usual... Know what, this is pointless, but keep trying dude...
It's not a game. It's an experience.
Uncharted 2 doesnt even have water tesselation, want great water? Play some Halo reach when its out.
That's hilarious man ! You make me laugh
Why dont you play some Halo Reach when its out and then you may or may not have something to brag about. In the meantime you just sound like a prick jabbering on about comparisons between an unreleased unproven game, and a released multiple award winning GOTY game.
And that's how you recognize desperation. Using future games, bullshots and PR talk as an argument against past games released on "hated" platform.
PLEASE DONT DO THIS TO YOURSELF...1ST OFF THE WATER IN UNCHARTED 2 IS 2ND TO NONE AND THE EFFECT WHEN YOU GET WET AND YOU SEE YOU CLOTHES SOAKED AND SLOWY DRY OFF CANT BE TOUCHED..... I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HALO REACH DO THAT KIND OF THING...
Now that Alan Wake, Metro 2033 and SCC are officially out of the running... On to Halo Reach! "Unreleased incredible future games" are awesome, until they become "released sub-par present games"! This is sort of like when PS3 owners use to say, "wait till ____ game comes out". Except those games use to meet and exceed their hype!
The next game isnt Halo, the next one is Alan wake, but its not about which one is the next one. This article is yappin about the water in Uncharted, which isnt impressive at all, besides the look of it, because theres no tesellation in the water, its all eyecandy and no physics. Mind you that getting wet from water in a game is not physics, just an alternate wet look animation upon entering water.
Awww look, Foxgod learnt a new word to make him sound all clever - tessellation ! Im so impressed by new found understanding of graphics techniques that i shall completely overlook your past record of talking utter shat.
Do you have any backup for your claim Rob? The only one here talking shat is you.
You want me to back up that you talk shat ? Well obviously its purely opinion based but i formed that opinion from the comments of yours - clearly 360 biased but yet always in PS3 threads (weirdo). After reading the things you posted then i have come to the conclusion that you are a total idiot. Gee, so much to choose from but my all time favourite has got to be when you once explained that there is no "IF" function is logical arguments. Even when proven utterly wrong you still kept backpedaling and making up even more ridiculous arguments - it was hilarious ! I could name many more but in it would be a long list because you make a knob of yourself in pretty much every thread. Maybe its just the PS3 threads and in the 360 articles you are seen as a bit of genius - i dont know because i dont go trolling there, maybe you should try that. That said dont actually think anybody on this website takes you seriously, your a bit of a running joke. You sure do have a lot of people ignoring you.
FUNNY HOW MONTHS LATER PEOPLE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT THIS GAME AND HOW IT CRUSHES EVERYTHING ON THE 3FIX-ME
No game on a console touches uncharted 2 graphically or technically... To Foxgod, it is clear that you are a child that has never played uncharted 2 on an HD tv, through hdmi... I understand xbox users have little use for an hdmi cable because the good old red, white, and yellow can handle anything the 360 can put out but don't take out your frustration on uncharted because mom and dad won't get you another console...
Loving the multiplayer right now with me and a couple friends- discovered using skype on a laptop to chat is much easier/better/clearer than a headset and we've been dominating.
My first PS3 Game! And first impressions last! I am so lucky to have U2 as my first game because the experience is so memorable. Like the first time you see a movie in the big screen when you were a little child. The awe and splendor of the experience will remain in your heart as long as you live. That is Uncharted 2 for moi.
ONLINE IS SO MUCH FUN .The single player is like a movie you can watch over and over again with the AWESOME gameplay .......
