Analysis: One Year On - Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2

Gamasutra: "In the first in a new series of monthly columns offering a critical reassessment of a video game released exactly 12 months ago, Gamasutra's European Editor Simon Parkin slips into Uncharted 2: Among Thieves to discover a game that "despite its ambition towards the mainstream Saturday afternoon blockbuster, swims against gaming’s prevailing tide."

Play uncharted 2 again today even just for an hour then play other newer games and enslaved demo and you will realise that even a year later current games are nowhere near the graphical quality of naughy gods actually made me realise what uncharted 2 has achieved.

I think only naughy gods themselves will better it.gow 3 comes very very close its a tough call

Good Read.

The game is definitely going to be one of the ones that define this generation of action games. EVERYTHING in the game is just so well put together.

Hank Hill3333d ago

Uncharted 2 is one of the greatest games of all time.

This guy has recorded the environments of the game and when you look how detailed they are there's no denying Uncharted is above and beyond everything else :

I can only imagine just how high naughty dog is riding right now.. They created arguably the best game this generation and garnered massive sales while helping sony keep the ps3 relevant all in one fell swoop.. Bravo naughty dog, you have cemented your place amongst the greatest names in gaming.. Looking forward to buying your next game..

edhe3333d ago

<4m sales isn't 'massive'.

Fable 2 sold more. Which was branded a massive failure by some.

moparful993333d ago

Umm a game is considered a commercial success if it hits 1 million in sales... So surpassing this mark by 4x is massive sales..

edhe3331d ago

1m does not certify success anymore.

4m probably clears it.

"massive" is a relative term and therefore you have use it with relation to what is truly bigger than it. Even disregarding Wii titles things like COD, gta, halo & gears pound UC2 down to above-average.

Digitaldude3333d ago

Couldn't agree more Jamie, playing the Enslaved demo I was pretty disappointed, yet I think any games graphics are disappointing cause I have been spoiled by the beast know as Uncharted 2.

cliffbo3333d ago (Edited 3333d ago )

i liked the visuals of enslaved but it seems impossible to fall off anything making the game too easy and way too much on a rail for my liking.

ps anyone disagreeing that uncharted 2 is one of the best games this genration either is a 360 fanboy or needs glasses and intelligence would help them too. :)

sulphury3333d ago

Veneno3333d ago


Play Demon's Souls and you'll be begging for Noob difficulty.

sulphury3333d ago (Edited 3333d ago )

its not hard, it just doesnt have checkpoints. that makes it repetetive not challenging

lol i get disagrees?? so you noobs want more noob games... bet ur all excited 4 black ops.. lol damn R Tard skill-less cancer that plagues those cod games...

ravinash3333d ago

Its repetitive if you keep dying.

If you don't want it to be repetitive - don't die.
If you don't want to die - get some skill.

The Uncharted series has taken over as my favorite game franchise, and can't wait for them to come out with Number 3. I hope they make more than that, but am just waiting for a fantastic 3rd entry to the series.

Got nothing but good to say about it

clintos593333d ago

I can tell that there are still alot of people buying this game because I play alot of uncharted 2 online and ill run into noobs who just started playing online with low levels. If it aint new buyers then they must be old players coming back for some uncharted 2 goodness. I cant wait for UC3 because we all know naughty dog will bring another masterpiece to the table.

United4Life3333d ago

So i get raped alot online.Still good Shit.

sulphury3333d ago
