People Can't Stop Talking About Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

And that's a good thing. The PlayStation Blog is already pointing everyone in the direction of early reviews for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and you can see why.

After wowing everyone at E3 and taking home 20 different awards - including 6 "Best in Show" honors - everyone has been waiting for October 13, the day when the next truly legitimate Game of the Year contender hits the market. And the critics are already responding: there was that leaked review from French publication PSM3 that had Naughty Dog's sequel busting through the ceiling; it scored an impossible 21/20. Then, the Official PlayStation Magazine scored it a perfect 5 out of 5, followed by another perfect score - 10 out of 10 - from UK publication GamesRadar. IGN just popped up a score of 9.5 and we're all willing to bet that you're anxiously awaiting our review. Well, we don't rush into the biggest titles of the year. We always want to give you the most in-depth and accurate analysis possible and besides, what difference does it make...? You can't buy the game for several more weeks anyway, so when it comes time to finally make a purchase decision (as if it's any decision at all, really), we'll be sure to tell you what we think. We have to go into every review with a blank slate brain...but damn, it's hard to do sometimes.

Perhaps it shouldn't surprise us that Uncharted 2 leads our weekly poll by a landslide. You guys saw this coming, didn't ya? Yeah, we got some smart readers out there. ;)

I'm really, really (have to over emphasis the 'really's) lookin forward to this game but all the build up for it is starting to ruin it for me.It's like Christmas, we know it's a great time of the year but the build up starts way too early and ruins it because we're sick of hearing about it. Same thing with this game. Way, way too much hype. We all know it's gonna be a kick ass game but now I'm just getting tired of hearing Uncharted2 this and Uncharted2 that. Previews being rated more then their reporters rating system allows for. Too much information being revealed about the game, before we even play it we'll already feel like we have.
I think there's gotta be major love out there for the Naughty Dog crew for banging together a real next gen game, and for spoiling us gamers rotten with all the extra's and decent price for a really high end product. Lets just stop flapping our lips about it and get the game out there so we can all get dug in to kicking some next gen ass!!!

I think the variety in level design (environmentally) may pull me away from Killzone 2. The one thing I wish they would have done with the multiplayer is create more diverse weather (i.e. Beach Head). I would have loved to have seen a snow level in that game.

But this game is shaping out beautifully!
Even though i wasnt thrilled with the multiplayer experience during the beta a while back, its actually looking more appealing each time i see a new screen shot or video clip of a new level.

I'm not reading any reviews until I own it. Some reviewers have big mouths or are simply inconsiderate towards those who'd rather experience the game first hand. I know this game is going to be great, I can live without the "wait until you see level 7" crap.

The MP demo is so much fun. I was in the earlier beta which was fun but it seemed to lack something. But ever since I loaded it this time around I can't put down the controler. With all of the unlocks and abilities this game has a lot of depth. Can't wait for the full release because this is such a great game.

When the scale is 100 points (e.g., IGN or psxextreme), I don't mind, but when the scale is 20 points (i.e., 1 to 10 with half-points), 10 points, or 5 points, it makes no sense not to use the top score. A top score doesn't mean the game has to be flawless, just top-tier.

What? How is MGS4 not a shooter, and Uncharted is? Uncharted isn't story-driven? If you played the first Uncharted, you would've noticed how much MGS4 borrows from Uncharted even to the last boss fight. Both games attempt to blur the line between cinema and games. If you liked one, you will like the other.

the people at naughty dog are pretty good at polishing up every game they make til it shines past a lot of what is out there at the time it comes out. jak and daxter games may not have been for everyone but no doubt they were amazing games. i was in the multiplayer beta earlier this year and it got me interested in playing uncharted: drakes fortune. i never was into tomb raider and uncharted always seemed like a tomb raider. they are close but uncharted is so much better and way more polished. i cant wait for this game now

how are they nothing alike, both have guns and are third person, both have you doing crazy jumps and climbing crazy sh** and doing puzzles at the same time. i stopped paying attention to tomb raider after the first couple so i have no idea where it went but the first couple tomb raiders and uncharted drakes fortune share a lot of things in common. i dont know how you say they are nothing alike.

i will agree that uncharted makes tomb raider look like a big pile

@ Alienange

The traps at the end of Ch. 4 of Uncharted are one-hit kills and they don't even have giant blades.

I've only played TR: Legend and TR: Anniversary (i.e., not earlier ones), but I see a lot of similarities. I think Uncharted does many things better (and is significantly better overall), but the environmental puzzles are better in TR: Legend (and it is hardly "a big pile").

some one here trusts eurogamers review? i say wait before looking at the reviews cause theres the open public demo on 9th. i can only commetn on the multiplayer as im a beta tester on that and i have to say its so fun and addictive. graphically is outways anything out there at the moment. its hard not to stop and just look around the secenery. i luv the variety of multiplayer modes so much i never know what play on it. the co-op is smooth too.
As it stand i would rate the multiplayer and co-op plus cinema mode and twitter funtionality/sending videos to friends list easily gives it an 11 out of 10 and thats based on just half the game.

About IGN.

[This was a reply to BlackBriar but now to everyone'

Nah I've been reading from IGN for a long time and their PlayStation team are nice people ^_^
One of the guys in there, Ryan, he is the RPG guy and supports all things PlayStation and Chris loves Gran Turismo. Both InFamous and Killzone 2 got over 9.0 scores from their US department.

They gave MGS a 10/10 (where some other big sites won't) and I think GT4.

It's just the Xbox team who gives the 360 games better than expected scores that make PS3 IGN look like Xbox fanboys. But they are not ;)

FWIW, the comment I made was a joke.

The PS team on IGN (including Haynes but maybe not Clements) all tend to grade lower than other teams, which makes PS3 exclusives look worse than 360 exclusives.

IMO, the UK team seem to have no clue.

IGN does reflect an industry-wide bias which stems from the fact that the editors all own 360s and use them as their primary systems (thanks, Achievements), but most still don't own PS3s (three years later!) and only play them occasionally at work. If you never buy PS3 games, it's easy to think there aren't any. I feel that way about the 360, though it's clearly not true. I'm not a professional game critic, though, so it's not my job to be fully informed and impartial.

Some of them don't even know the differences between the PS3 SKUs, FFS.

p.s. Three internet abbreviations may be a record for me.

how this got less than GTAIV i will never ever ever be able to understand.

how infamous got less than GTAIV i will never ever ever be able to understand.

how KZ2 got less than GTAIV i will never ever ever be able to understand.

how MGS4 got less than GTAIV from most sites i will never ever ever be able to understand.

thats why i dont bother reading reviews any more because 99.99% of the time there utter ....
either that or i believe the opposite.
like wet got a bad review but i love that game.
but than GTAIV got a fing 10 and i hate that game.
never ever in my life have i been dissapointed so much.
never.
reviews either should just have advantages and disadvantages, likes and dislikes.
or start scoring them properly.
if GTAIV is a better game than uncharted 2 or any previous listed games than im f***ing Mary Poppins.

I gotta agree about GTAIV being rated over these other game that are far superior...I hated that game and traded it in for God knows what...but end of the day, it's down to personal taste of the reviewer, and although they try to be impartial when rating a game, it still really comes down to their personal choice. If they really like GTAIII then they may of already formed an opinion on number IV, hence the over exaggerated ratings over far superior games like KZ2, Infamous, MGS4 and Uncharted 2.
I'm sure there's plenty of people who agree with the reviews but obviously not everyone so it's better to form your own opinions before purchasing something that a reviewer says you should have.
Can't imagine what reviewer is gonna give less then the 9.5 IGN gave, but then again, someone will...call it the law of averages!
