Gamespot editors' review
Nate's Adventures continues
by afroloq on October 14, 2009
Pros: The ease you can get into this game especially if you played part one.
Cons: Some of the stealth elements aren't credible, but not enough to take away from the game

Summary: This game came out right as I finished the first one and really it?s giving me a great idea of how someone can take a rather new IP and improve up on it. It sort of reminds me of how GoW was improved upon from one to 2 without missing a beat and it?s really good.
You really don?t need to play part 1 of Uncharted per se unless you would like to better understand some of the characters in the game and how they all relate.
Presentation and story wise, this game to me, so far, makes up for all of the sucky movies that came out this summer from the cliffhanger beginning to running thru the streets of Nepal avoiding runaway trucks, so far this game is a big thumbs up. And yes, some of the action scenes are a bit clichéd but then really think when is the last time you actually played some of those scenes in a game? Altho it may be barely noticeable (it?s really noticeable to me however) the cut scences and overall visuals look much sharper than it?s predecessor almost to a point that it does make you feel more like you are playing an interactive movie. Not to mention that these early levels really have you playing up to the game?s starting point with crosses and double crosses really gets the blood pumping.
AI Wise, I do enjoy the fact that just like the last game, your sidekicks will provide help but won?t do all of the work which is good. Don?t go thru the game expecting your AI buddy to do all of the killing. You have to get your hands dirty too. Not to mention I LIKE the dialogue (There?s one above you! There?s one below you! And ?You follow all the ?hose?) that sometimes just randomly spouts up. Speaking of which, I enjoy how the game?s new characters are introduced with the new faces and old faces and just when you think you can trust somebody, they turn on you and sometimes back again.
Control wise, I think they have been tweaked somewhat with a few buttons moved and simplified but there is a tutorial that happens in certain sections that show you how to do things. The added ?Stealth and takedown? mode really fleshes this out to keep this a run ?n gun fest. Speaking of, you have to really plan a lot of your moves in this game especially in the Stealth portions as moving to rashly will almost always end badly for you. The shooting portions are similar to the first and are reminiscent of the GoW series. You can do more blind shooting and you can target your enemy as well and they are indeed smart. They will flank and pin you down if you aren?t careful.
All in all, Uncharted 2 is a top notch adventure game that succeeds where the Tomb Raider games had gone wrong and keeps it fun and interesting without all the frustrating puzzles and fizzle.
5 or 6 chapters in, I am very satisfied playing this game and I can?t wait to try the multiplayer!

This is the best game I've ever seen or played
by Jimmybock16 on March 17, 2011
Multiplayer is an absolute riot
Very creative story and dialogue, and it's long compared to most single-player campaigns
Cons: I guess the only thing I can think of would be that Naughty Dog was a little slow patching the multi-player to keep cheaters honest.
Summary: I'm way late giving a review for this game, but it's a masterpiece. I'll give you my 4 other favorite games of all time: NHL 94 on ...
Summary: I'm way late giving a review for this game, but it's a masterpiece. I'll give you my 4 other favorite games of all time: NHL 94 on the Genesis, Mario Kart on the N64, C&C Red Alert 2 on PC and Tecmo Super bowl on the NES. This game beats them all.
I played the multi-player deathmatch part of this game at least 3 nights a week for a year straight. If you have a PS3 and don't own this game, you're not doing your system justice. And if you don't own a PS3, it's worth getting simply to play this game.
One of THE best games of all time PERIOD!

Pros: Everything - Story, pacing, gameplay, presentation, look, sound, and overall immersiveness.
Cons: It has an ending.
Summary: I played the single player three times in a row and enjoyed every minute of it. That occurred the first week when the game was released. A friend of mine ...
Summary: I played the single player three times in a row and enjoyed every minute of it. That occurred the first week when the game was released. A friend of mine got his copy and we started playing the co-op mode and played that for a couple of days until two more of my buddies got the game. We started playing the competitive modes and it was all over!!! we fragged people, shared some laughs, some tears and cursed a lot at the opposing team. This game will remain in the top three of my top ten, that is until Naughty Dog outdo themselves with the next installment of the Uncharted franchise.
should buy a ps3 slim for this game.

Summary: After finally purchasing a PS3, and watching an extremely terrible movie, I went to Gamestop and picked up this game; simply because the commercial just finally got to me about the girl thinking it was a movie. I thought to myself why not?
I never played the first one, but you don't need to play it, to play Uncharted 2. It's useful for a character significance to understand how they know each other, but other than that it's not mandatory.
The story starts with a huge impact just pulling you in, and you continue playing as Drake and learn about what his quest is.
The controls are extremely simple, aim and shoot with L1 and R1; depending on which weapon you're using, the zoom can help [I caught it's only helpful with the Dragon Sniper]. After killing an enemy and pressing triangle to get their refills, you continue on.
An awesome aspect of this game is while you're walking, the characters will talk to each other letting you hear a conversation between them. It ranges from giving you tips to just simply letting you hear out their personalities completely making it more realistic; an example would be if you're underneath a ladder and the person is pushing it down, Drake will simply jump backwards saying, "Whoa" or something of the like. However, when you die in the midst of a battle after a scene such as that, you would have to listen to the entire thing over; and I notice that the subtitles if you choose to put it there, won't sync at all.
This game provided so much walking, that I started to get tired of just walking around and actually wanted to just sit and battle. Climbing around does this make this challenging, but at the same time, there just didn't seem to be enough "fighting". It seemed a lot more story and walking then it did having to deal with shooting. That doesn't take the flavor of the game however; there was nothing that took away the entertainment that this game provided, the short story did. This game could be played as a weekend game; sort of like God of War.
When it comes to the shooting, I noticed that I would constantly do headshots, but I would actually be shooting on the shoulder. I only figured that out, because the blood would appear on the shoulder, but I would end up getting a trophy for doing XX headshots. I'd be completely bewildered, but not complain about that. It does get aggravating when you clearly do the headshots, but they don't consider those. I noticed the majority of the time, when that happened, I would just end up running in to just do grab moves just to kill them off <that's actually addicting; challenging having to run in through the bullets, and being able to counter them when they decide to fight back>.
When you get gameover, they made it simple enough, it auto-saves as much as possible for you, so when you die, you just get to start off from the nearest spot of where you died where it last autosaved, so it makes it more convenient for you.
All in all, this game DOES provide trophies so that helps a lot with the rankings. This game is also extremely entertaining, so it IS worth the money.
I adored the first..
