  1. 100
    Uncharted 2 is one of the most memorable video games ever created. Not because it is particularly innovative, but because the mixture of shooting, climbing, creeping, thinking, laughing and simple astonishment works perfectly.
  2. 100
    It's truly an adventure from start to finish, and something that every gamer should experience.
  3. 100
    Spread across twenty-six chapters is a story as playful and worthwhile as the gameplay.
  4. The single player story is one of the most memorable I've experienced in a long time, and the new multiplayer component is far from a tack on. It's a significant addition that presents tremendous replay value. Simply put, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the complete package.
  5. Uncharted 2 has no rival on the PS3. There's no other game, despite Killzone 2 on the visuals, with the same level of quality as Naughty Dog's newest game. The rhythm of the game is fast-paced and action-packed, and includes some fun, well-thought-out dialogue. The game is almost perfect in every stage, and it has online coop and deathmatch; there's no doubt that it's one of the top three games for the PS3, and one of the five best games of this year.
  6. One of the best games to come out this year. An extremely immersive story, solid gameplay, great sound, addictive multiplayer, and one of the best-looking games of all time.
  7. 80
    The developers have played it safe to some degree and because of this Uncharted 2 doesn’t feel like it has an identity of its own.

    Can't believe all these 360 fanboys giving this game 0 out of ten, its a perfect ten from me and the best game of this gen so far, everythingCan't believe all these 360 fanboys giving this game 0 out of ten, its a perfect ten from me and the best game of this gen so far, everything about this game is first class, graphics, gameplay, story and sound, they even added a fun multiplayer, while not as addictive as call of duty, its a good first attempt.
    Bottom line, if you own a PS3, get this game, Naughty Dog have a huge task beating this with the sequel but if anyone can do it its Naughty Dog 10/10

    Uncharted 2 improves on every aspect of the original - surpassing it by miles and standing on its own as a video game triumph. This sequelUncharted 2 improves on every aspect of the original - surpassing it by miles and standing on its own as a video game triumph. This sequel embeds fantastic storytelling with memorable characters and technologically outstanding set pieces to weave together an almost perfect game. This game flows extremely well as you play through it; the pacing has been done perfectly and there is never a boring scene - every minute of this game had me engrossed. The sense of adventure has been significantly increased in this game as it takes you to a variety of locations that have been created with amazing detail.

    The characters in this game are developed very well thanks to a fantastic script, making the action sequences and moments of near-death experiences all the more intense and emotional. The gameplay in this game is much more varied than the other one, however, there is still some present issues with the shooting mechanics – but it can really be overlooked compares to all the pros of the game. Overall, this is a fantastic sequel and one of the best games of the decade; it’s practically flawless. Uncharted 2 gets a 95%
