"Indiana Jones ain't got nothing on this."
Uncharted 2 has more quality to it than most blockbuster films we have ever seen. It covers all the basics like plot, setting, it has multiple climaxes and flawless character development. This game also has extremely professional voice acting that goes throughout cut scenes and mid-game play. The story will shock and amaze you in so many ways, you have no idea. The only down side is the ending for two reasons.
Reason one: It didn't compare well to the rest of the entire game.
Reason two: It has and ending.
Other than that it pretty epic.
This game proves that 3th person shooters can be way better than 1st person shooter. The cover system is quite similar to Gears or War, but it's a lot better. The climbing system works well and combat is cool and enjoyable. This game has the greatest stealth game play ever. Not even Metal Gear Solid has better stealth game play than this and that's just sad. It is also great that stealth can be used at almost every part of Uncharted 2.
Nothing compares to this. Uncharted 2 has the best graphics in all cases. From Jungle to Cities to Snowy mountains. Uncharted was the best in water effects, but now its also the best in snow effects. I swear, you will have never seen a game that pulls of snow effects better than this. It's just amazing. The physic are also a thing to appreciate to because things and objects move around realistically when you walk into them and when you get wet your clothes gets wet. Same thing goes for snow to.
Since it's a PS3 exclusive it has the power to make entire cities and landscapes. If you play the game you can tell that the game developers out did themselves in all aspects. They made a giant city for you and you only walk through like 5% of it. They put way to much effort into making this game. The music is epic summer blockbuster movie quality and the different places you go to are designed to look like real temples in Nepal and have a very cultural feeling to them it just epic.
The game is about 8 and a half hours long, but trust me. Your going to play this game like 10 times before you get tired of it. Uncharted 2 has plenty of replay value.
Uncharted 2 is Game of the Year hands down. 10/10
p.s. Multiplayer is the best thing since halo 2.
