Uncharted 2 was everything I was expecting and more !
Like the first game, you are taken on a roller-coaster ride (not literally) in this action packed adventure, ranging from running across moving trains, to hanging for your life from a cliff face.
As with the first, the story telling is amazing, and you feel like your living through an Indiana Jones film. The voice acting and character acting to totally believable, and would be a game I’d be happy to sit back and what somebody play. The story was written in a way that you didn’t know if you were coming or going, who were your friends, and who where you enemies…totally amazing.
The story continues shortly after the first one finishes. Again you play Nate Drake, and are joined by Sully, Elena and other key members, eg Chloe Frazer, (voiced by Claudia Black) to run through the adventure with you.
The sound again can be switched to 7.1 PCM which really adds to the atmosphere created by the stunning visuals. As with the first I found myself standing looking at the scenery for minutes at a time.
The game took me 13 hours to complete on normal, and only had a handful of “Doh ! I’m stuck” moments. The combat was fairly balances, as were the puzzles.
As I write this, I’ve not tried the multiplayer, however even without this, I still feel I have value for money, and would have happily paid double for this game, if it was possible to give a game 6 out of 5, I would, it was that good.
If you have a PS3, and don’t have Uncharted 1 or Uncharted 2, buy them now, your PS3 deserves it.
