Uncharted 2

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves



I try to restrict myself to reviewing games I've beaten all the way through but I'm going to go out on a limb to say the rest of Uncharted 2 is just as amazing as the several hours I already plugged into it. Visuals? Stunning. Voice-acting? Spot on. Narrative? Great. (A little, erm, predictablish. But what action-adventure isn't? Though I'm sure there's lots more in store when I rip towards the end.) This is Indiana Jones the game, and it's glorious. Every scene so far tries to squeeze as much awesome out as possible.

Point out faults, you say?
  • Sometimes Drake hugs/covers behind objects I didn't intend him to.
  • Sometimes grab take-downs were not happening where I expected them to.
  • Being a PC gamer, shooting precision isn't as, erm, precise as I would like (but when is it ever going to be on a gamepad?).
These instances were not numerous or distracting enough to make a scratch on the experience.

You own a PS3? Buy-it. If you're an action gamer you owe it to yourself to at least play through it. Even the girlfriend/boyfriend will get a kick out of just watching.

Note: Have not played coop.

Note 2: Have not played the original. For shame?

I hear you now! Yes, I will look to get my hands on the original if I see it in the bin. I would borrows it, but I'm not sure of any friend who would be willing!

You've not played the original? Oh, holy shit. DUDE.

Put 2 down.

Put 2 down and play 1. It takes 10-12 hours if you're any good. But you need to. Like, can't put into words how much you need to. :< Oh lord.

I would gladly buy a console(s) if they weren't so god awfully pricey over here still, and it's surprising considering these things haven't depreciated as quickly as consoles from the last generation.

This is why console gaming never really caught on in my country. :C

To be fair, I could live w/o my console while hugging my PC. I only wish there was none of this silly 'exclusivity' crazyness w/ awesome games. The software is where the money is so, come on, don't be shy w/ the multi-platforming, guys.

How is a PS3 there nowadays?

About $2,000 last time I checked a month ago, 360s and Wiis cost a few hundred more. Console games aren't any cheaper; most of their pricing range from $100 to $300, which is outrageous.

$2,000 could buy me a PC with current hardware that could do so much more. That's why I couldn't bring myself to invest the same amount of money on a gaming console.

I'm disappointed that none of my mates have a PS3 where I can rock around and give this game a shot. One of my PC gamer mates is all excited about Borderlands so I don't see him getting this anytime soon. :shakefist:

That game looks like a time-sucker. Drake and you might have to mingle in the future.

Figured it was about time. I was getting tired of seeing the same one every time I logged in!
