Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

Fortune hunter Nathan Drake returns in UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, a pulse-pounding third-person action-adventure/shooter created by award-winning developer Naughty Dog. Down on his luck, Drake is lured back into the treacherous world of thieves and mercenary treasure-seekers he had sought to leave behind. When a mysterious artifact propels Drake on an expedition to find the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala, he finds himself embroiled in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse against a fugitive war criminal who’s after more than just the fabled riches of the lost city. Caught in a web of deception and plunged into an increasingly deadly pursuit that tests the limits of his endurance, Drake will be forced to risk everything – but has his luck finally run out?

From Amazon.ca

Follow-up game to 2007's critically acclaimed Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, the PlayStation 3 exclusive Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is a continuation of the adventures of Nathan Drake, a fortune-hunter with a shady reputation and an even shadier past. Chock full of all the action, adventure, cinematic story elements and beautiful graphics that set the first game apart, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves adds deep online multiplayer options, including co-op and competitive campaigns, and a whole new supporting cast of characters, making it yet another must-have title for the PlayStation 3 platform.

Story
In Uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves fortune hunter Nathan Drake embarks on a journey that will push him to his physical, emotional and intellectual limits to discover the real truth behind the lost fleet of Marco Polo and the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala, more commonly known in the west as Shangri-La.

In 1292 Marco Polo departed the court of Kublai Khan in China with 14 ships filled with over 600 passengers and crew. Eighteen months later only one ship remained and 18 passengers survived. Marco Polo never revealed what happened to these lost ships. Embarking on a quest to find the lost fleet, fortune hunter Nathan Drake soon realizes Marco Polo was hiding a much bigger secret - he had gone on a secret expedition to find the mythical kingdom of Shambhala and to recover the legendary Cintamani Stone, the "Wish-fulfilling jewel" of Buddhist mythology. With this new information Drake settles on a new course, following Marco Polo's trail through a diverse range of exotic environments. This quest also pits him against a new, more formidable adversary - a ruthless, rogue paramilitary leader with a private army and a relentless ambition to recover the stone for himself.

Gameplay
Although gameplay in Among Thieves is similar to that of the previous game, there are several major differences. The most important of these is the addition of several online multiplayer options. Unfortunately, no offline multiplayer could be included in the game due to the impact local split-screening has on the game's graphical quality. Thankfully though, the online modes included cover both co-op and competitive play. See the feature list below for details on these. In addition to play modes players can also expect a wealth of new gameplay features including a new stealth gameplay mechanic and altered climbing mechanic--both of which are extended to the AI of enemies; the ability to create cover by flipping over certain found items; the use of riot shields for defense and offense; and a complete lack of loading screens.

If you loved the first one (Uncharted: Drake's Fortune), you'll definitely love the sequel. I've played through the first 8 chapters, and I would've gone on, but I figured 2.5 hrs of sleep are necessary--turns out I was wrong, you need more than that for your brain to function the next day. But no matter, I had a blast.

The single player is more of the same, which is good, yet more polished, with a more fleshed out story, feels like a big-budget movie where the first one felt like a surprise hit, and there are minor improvements in each aspect of the gameplay that add up to a better over-all feel. Looks gorgeous as ever, with lush jungles, intricately detailed architecture, excellent animation; same excellent voice acting, same humorous take on adventure; much better hand-to-hand combat--it now has a counter-system, a minor tweak that makes you want to mix it up more than before; there's even an improvement in shooting--gone is the silly six-axis grenade control, and this time different guns actually feel different.

There's some people (game journalists) complaining that the game still suffers from dumb AI, that enemies for example won't react to their compadres being out cold on the ground thanks to Drake. But in all honesty, if the game would have that level of realism, then it probably wouldn't be fun--it's fun to take out the bad guys, not as much fun if you had to clean up the area and carry them out of sight.

I find it funny that reviews from people that didn't get to play the game get 2/2 helpful votes, mine is getting 0/? though we're all in agreement it's a 5/5 game. Aaaah, democracy at work... I miss father Stalin...

I'm not going to go into some long-winded review about why I absolutely enjjoyed this game. I'm simply going to say...play it!

The Uncharted games are known for simulating a summer action blockbuster movie and this one does not let the player down. If you played the first game you know exactly what you'll be getting into: non-stop adrenaline rushing gameplay...if you didn't play the first...what are you waiting for its only $29!

my only gripe about this game is the use of its cover system. They haven't perfected it yet and oftentimes upon pushing the "O" button to get Drake to go into cover he may just stand there or twitch a little instead of ducking his head so he doesn't get shot up. I'm sure that'll be fixed in the next game (I'm like to see it mroe Gears of War like where your character sticks to it easily and with force to ensure he stays put). Though note this problem only caused me 1 death during the whole game so it wasn't a huge problem...just a minor annoyance

Did I mention to buy this game yet? Its the best 7-12 hours you'll have in an action-adventure game this year guaranteed!

"Uncharted-Drake's Fortune" is without a doubt the greatest video game I have ever played on any console, ever. I had worries weither Naughty Dog could make the sequel as good, if not possibly better. I played the first few chapters and was left feeling a bit let down. It played very similar, but had some new stealth level and sudden new characters I didn't feel comfortable with. But, when the game opens up past chapter 4, then it starts to remind me what I loved about the last game. All my little dissapointments quickly evaporated and I really got into the story. The new additions and tweaks work well, just takes some getting used to, like the new grenade mechanic. The music is great, but the voice talent here is amazing, Nolan North really deserves an award! The new characters mix great with the old ones, which I was beginning to miss at the start. The puzzles are great, the environments stun with the sheer beauty and scope. "Drake's Fortune" is still my #1, now, it has company to share that spot with "Among Theives" in my books.

I know the title should speak for itself, but this game requires a longer review. Uncharted 2 is the only game I've played this year with characters you "care" about. The team AI is excellent, they are there when you need them, but never in your way (although they don't shoot very well). This game takes you around the world (won't say where because it's fun to play spoiler free). As a Tomb Raider fan from my childhood, I feel that the programmers at Eidos must have played Uncharted 2 and said "this is what we always wanted to do, but couldn't". Thank you PS3.

I never played Drake's Fortune (but will starting tomorrow), but from now on Naughty Dog is in the books with Valve and Kojima Productions as a studio I will buy games from, just because of a history of awesome.

Unless you are <12 this is a MUST HAVE! Parents, this is THE Christmas gift...

This is by far the best game that I have ever played. Currently I am having trouble getting past I think it is the tower, haven't had time in over a week to go back and continue trying all sorts of ways around this. I am in a building that has mirrors and two of them are giving me trouble trying to find out how to get to them. I highly recommend this game and also the first Uncharted.
