Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (5/5)

I came into Uncharted 2 expecting awesomeness, and awesomeness is exactly what I got.  Uncharted 2 is one of the best games I have played.  It is right up there with the Legend of Zelda Series.

One of the biggest appeals of the original Uncharted game was the way it’s epic story unfolded before the eyes of the gamer.  The game had a very cinematic feel, and Uncharted 2 builds upon this with an even more engaging story that unfolds through both cinematic cutscenes and in-game action.  The original cast returns along with a slew of new characters, all of whom are memorable.  I don’t want to revel much about the plot, but lets just say Drake is back into the treasure hunting business in an adventure that will take him to various locations across the globe.

One of the best things that tie story into gameplay are action sequences that you will play.  Action sequences such as playing on top of a train or fighting inside of a crumbling building really get the adrenaline pumping and pull you into the game.

The basic gameplay is the same as the fist game with a few nice additions.  There are stealth-mode type sequences which, while a little buggy at times, are very fun and help to break up the gameplay.  But aside from that, and the action-sequences mentioned earlier, it is the same ol climbing and shooting, and I would not have it any other way.  The game is a blast to play and will keep you glued to your controler for hours.

The graphics are outstanding and the sound quality is terrific.  The musical score is spot-on, and the voice acting is perfect.  The only flaw would be that the eyes of some characters look odd.

Overall, if you have a ps3, buy this game…if you don’t own a ps3, here is the perfect reason to invest in one.

    It’s games like this that make me want to invest in a PS3, however at times like this I just can’t see myself investing a few hundred dollars into a console when I’m as busy as I am with college and what not. There are a dozen titles on different consoles I’d like to play, but I’m content on what titles I can play on the Wii. Definitely wanna try this out though.
