Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - Game of The Year Edition
Recommend this product?
It was nearing valentine's day of 2011. I was playing Call of Duty: Black Ops when my wife put a game in front of me. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Collector Edition. She knows how much I enjoyed the first Uncharted, and decided to purchase this for me for a valentine's present. I eventually openned the game, and soared into an adventure.
For everyone that is new to the world of Uncharted I recommend playing the first one first. Nate is the main character whom is a treasure hunter. I don't want to go into detail about the story line, but in a nutshell the character is requested to acquire a treasure for someone, and is on a quest to acquire it.
This game is incredibly fun. This game makes me feel like I am part of a Hollywood action movie. The games has some funny moments, and doesn't really try to take itself to serious. The scenary in this game is just gorgeous. There are moments and landscapes that I wish I could hang on my living room walls. Some locations include snowy mountains, and commercial zones that include buildings and streets. There is also an amazing jungle area as well.
Some of the great features of this game is when death occurs. Instead of having to start from the beginning of the mission, in most cases it starts very close to where the death occured. There is not a large selection of weapons, but enough to make it entertaining. Also there is an amazing level that the player must jump from one vehicle to the other. It sounds harder than it really is, so don't be nervous about that.
The game is set up in a third person view, and because of this at times the camera becomes an issue. At times someone may be shooting, and the player is unable to see from where the bullets are coming from. Other times yo may need to jump from a ledge to another, and have trouble lining the character up properly to make that jump, and end up leaping to death. Most of the time the camera will not be a problem.
This isn't one of those game that can be beat in a couple of hours. The designers really did there best to truly give the players a worthy game for the money. This game will keep the player on the edge of there seat from the beginning to the end. The game also has a great replay value that has many hidden treasures throughout the levels for the players. By completing different types of rewards, unlocks many different type of features that may be used while playing through the game.
The game does offer multiplayer that I have yet to visit. When purchasing the Game of The Year Edition, it allows the person who purchased the game to download a lot of goodies from the Playstation Network, which include avatars, and online playable characters.
If ready for an incredible adventure with incredible graphics. Great story line, and the feel of a Hollywood movie, than this game is for that person. As long as someone doesn't pay more than $50.00 for this game, I feel that are making a great deal.
