Uncharted 2: Among Thieves PS3 User Reviews« Back to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves PS3
Super Gamer Dude
I recently purchased Uncharted 2 Among Thieves after reading rave reviews about the PS3 game all over the web, but I was left a little disappointed with the overall game to be perfectly honest.
The graphics on the game are excellent, what I tend to dislike about this game is the cut scenes, where you spend ages just watching. I feel with computer games today although it is nice to have graphics which resemble movies it is a game after all and requires the use of some hand held device. Graphics 10/10
After all these games are not the price of movies and therefore you should get more bang of your buck in terms of game play, if you don't put your controller down you can finish this game in about 17 hours flat.
The other annoyance with Uncharted 2 Among Thieves is the constant amount of climbing which takes place within the game, dont get me wrong I like a little climb, whether it was just me I don't know, it just felt like I was climbing forever.
The Game reminds me a lot of Tomb Raider Underworld only the difference being Uncharted 2 Among Thieves has better graphics.
Overall, I think this is one of them games which you will either love or hate, personally I am going to play it again simply because the graphics is astounding and the multiplayer makes this game worth every penny.
I must admit I did find myself pretty much engaged in the whole game, so much so i finished it in 17 hours, so you could say it is slightly addictive.
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.
