Playing beta at the moment, loved the first one, it sits in my top 5 games of all time. This one seems same gameplay-wise. Added multiplayer is fun, and I can see myself returning to it once I finish the story. Graphics seem better.

So all they need to do is not screw up the story and it's almost perfect for me.

I also loved the first one, quality story

First a post on the Fallout 3 DLC thread saying:


Been there, played that ages ago thanks to a great invention called an xbox 360

And now this:

I am starting to think you are a little xbox fanboy.

Fecking Xbox scum fanboy. No in all seriousness I love console fanboy freds. Look at the comments section after the IGN review. LOL like xbox give it zero when ps3 kids give it 10. Oh the futility of it. I could just buy a wii or Xbox today, but I don't see the point.

The problem with IGN though Draino is that they take cash for reviews. A lot of devs openly go to them 1st to do reviews as they know majority of the time they will get a high score. Plus IGN is a very Sony orientated website, after all their podcast is called "the three red lights".....
Then what happens when they give a review that the games company don't quite agree with?
http://uk.pc.ign.com/articles/936/936295p1.html
They gave Football Manager 2009 a 2 rating, that is pure laughable, no game is worth a 2 rating. But because Sega complained they changed it. Also they pay money to have their name advertised in games in return for favourable reviews ala Pro Evo Soccer.

All in all i would trust my grandma's reviews ahead of IGN.
The only people today who really tell it like it is, is Eurogamer.

I am looking forward to the sequel of this game but too many other games coming out in such a short space of time that it will have to wait a bit for me :( Fifa10,Forza 3 and COD6 = i got no money.

I agree there is a Harry Redknapp in every office in the world. But their reviews seem to be mostly balanced and accurate; so I have found. Edge magazine are the stingiest; 7/10 for Killzone 2 lol.

Edge has always given an average game a 5 whereas most other publications consider 7 to be an average score. A really special game will get a 9 or 10 in Edge. Killzone 2 is a reasonable shooter, above average but nothing special so a 7 seems fair to me.

Edge would actually like to remove their scores as too many mongs concentrate on them instead of the actual content of the review. They tried it before but there was a widespread mong uprising so they are back. Shame really...

Just read the Kotaku review, which is the gaming site I trust the most.

http://kotaku.com/5369539/uncharted-2-among-thieves-review-fortune-shines-on-drake

Doesn't give the games a score which I like, but it's only negative is something which has no relation to the game, and has since been removed!

Just checked on the metacritic, it has 98... couldn't be more excited for it.

Oh apart from Mario Kart on the Wii. Is a game worth 200.00?

Really? Only paid 22 for it brand new!

Among thieves will be my birthday present, 24 and still getting games from the rents as a present!

They pay 26 now for it so dropped by 3, guess not that much really. They still give you 30 exchange value though if you swapped it for something else.

I downloaded the multiplayer demo and its damn good. Will deffo purchase this one! I had a go at two Co-operative maps with 2 other players and it was good fun helping each other, saving each other from certain death and shooting the bad guys!

Good. Order online and impatiently wait like the rest of us!

I don't trust Play to deliver it on time, and Shopto are a mess. I stick with Amazon, but unlike Play, you don't get the chance of it to be delivered a day early.

Which is better than not getting the delivery on the release day guarenteed. Which Play failed for with me on a couple of titles. *waves fist*

My shopto order turned up today. It is very good :finga:

Also found out I've just been accepted for the APB beta! What a day...

It's truly challenging Half-Life 2 in my 'Best games ever played' list.

Draino76
17-10-2009, 10:51 AM
I'm hearting; the opening scene on the train, the stealth involved, the new melee system, the way the cutscenes blend in seemlessly with the gameplay and the chick with the dark hair.

Saint_clark
17-10-2009, 01:48 PM
It's actually unbelievable. The opening scene with the train (and Drake struggling because of his injuries) actually makes you feel the urgency, fear and suspense.

Naughty Dog are very clever for that, saying that they had his pace slowed down and more pain sounds added in than usual in that sequence, all to immerse the player and make them feel how bad it's gone for Drake through the trudgeness (is that a word? It is now.) and bleakness of the snowy landscape with an injury.

Haven't completed it yet, but the other train bit is the best bit of the game for me so far.

Saint_clark
17-10-2009, 08:53 PM
In that parts where you are encouraged to use stealth, is it actually possible to make it through the entire area without a gun battle breaking out?

have had it since the 15th........not played it yet and its killing me slightly. Damn birthday

Finished it a few days ago. Same as the first one, my only complaint is that (for me) it's far too short.

Bentley
23-10-2009, 04:19 PM
Felt short for me as well, however, when I saw my stats at the end, it said I'd been playing for 13 hours! I'm sure the nonstop action just made it feel more like 8 hours.

Now moving onto Hardened, co-op action with friends, and multiplayer till Modern Warfare arrives.

Jimmy_D
29-10-2009, 11:35 PM
seemed short to me as well... finished it the weekend it came out, but it just seems like that because it NEVER drags. It doesn't stop being fun from start to finish and the storyline holds the entire thing together fantastically well.

Draino76

Anyone playing the co-op objectives? Its fecking great. Chaps I'll be playing tonight if anyone wants to cooperate.

saint_stevo
05-11-2009, 10:15 PM
Less than 12hrs to finish single player, bit dissapointing...

Gonna give the multiplayer a whirl now i think

Evidently not as short as MW2. On last level after 15 hours. been playing on and off since release day. Just had a go with Co-op objective online. Awesome!
