Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Review



Nathan Drake; a few years ago this name would have meant nothing to anyone who considered themselves a gamer. Then Naughty Dog decided to turn him into an action adventure superstar following in the footsteps of such greats as Indiana Jones and Lara Croft. That was back around the launch of Sony’s Playstation 3 console, where we were introduced to Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. Here we stand a few years later, enjoying the second mesmerizing installment in what is surely a franchise we’ll see a lot of in the coming years. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the follow up to 2007’s surprise hit, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, and with the second title comes a lot of familiar ground. Before we get to the main body of the review, I will summarise Uncharted 2 for those who don’t have time for the full review. Uncharted 2 is a game that will grab your face, jam it onto the screen and keep you fixated constantly, only stopping occasionally to remind you it isn’t taking itself so seriously with some in-game humour, as well as fourth-wall breaking humour. This is what makes it a great game; it never stops dazzling the eyes and the ears, making it a sensory delight to behold. Breath-taking visuals, accompanied with some of the best voice acting and possibly the best original score video games have been graced by in 2009.
