The life of a treasure hunter has always been exciting, and our hero Nathan Drake is as it again; traveling around the world searching for a long lost treasure of a mogul, and trying not get killed in the process. With this sequel, every point has been made stronger than Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (the first release). The astounding colors bring every location to life – from tropical jungles to ice caves to broken cities, and they feel new too! The game isn’t perfect, but the minor quirks are forgivable enough to fully enjoy this awesome game.
The adventure begins as Nathan Drake sets off to find a mysterious relic, supposedly with magic powers. This said object is also being pursued by an evil warlord intending to use its powers and become omnipotent. The twists involved are predictable, but they manage to keep things interesting as the cast are all likeable. The dialogue incorporated into the game is great as well, making the whole adventure process very authentic.
Our hero may be good natured and humorous, but he does his business very seriously. Drake is well armed to take on any quest that can involve the following: armed mercenaries, lunges across bottomless pits, or putting together an ancient puzzle. The weapons and grenades are easy to aim and use and you can use one weapon after another for a sadistically thrilling slaughter of unknown enemies.
Drake’s actions are very fluid as he moves from one environment to another, and a chain of actions is not impossible! He can perform a long jump then instantly grab a weapon behind his back to defend himself in case of an ambush attack. The animators gave attention to details in the background to make the experience more authentic; after having a swim in the river, Drake emerges wet, or in jungle scenes you can see tiny animals running among the branches. Despite all of this, the game manages to be quick and smooth.
Known for its stunning graphics, Uncharted 2 is better visually and is more dynamic than Drake’s Fortune. Each level is fully destructible, perfect if you have a lot of extra weaponry at bay. Multiplayer options are rewarding as well, with two modes to choose from.
