The final boss of this game SUCKS

Wish I could have experienced this when it first came out. I was neither underwhelmed nor overwhelmed by this game. I was simply whelmed to a sufficient degree.

High quality action adventure game.

You are looking for one the highest budget best looking games on the PS3? Look no further, this is your game. You want a replayable game with deep gameplay? Pass this throught.

While a highly polished game that improves absolutely everything from it's predecessor, it imitates a hollywood movie so much it has just about the same replayability as one. Everything about this game is well done: the platforming is fluid and intuitive, combat is very balanced and spectacular and puzzle sections are not too complicated to get stuck, but enough to make you feel as if you were smart. The pacing between the three styles of gameplay is done perfectly, so we are never bored or oversaturated. Problem is, once you finish this game, there is little reason to come back to it. It won't play any different, and there isn't much side content worth checking. Multiplayer used to expand this game's life, but I'm not sure if that mode is available anymore.

As much quality this game posses, is one of those games that loses traction for trying to imitate another medium way too much for what is worth.

Best intro of any game ever

Vastly improved from the first entry, it's very easy to see why this game is regarded highly in the Uncharted series.

From the first game, Uncharted 2 displays much better gameplay pacing, significantly improved and more frequent character dialog/interactions, a more involved story, and of course more high budget action-movie-like moments that the series is so well known for.

The game features gunplay that I still found engaging to this day, as well as puzzles that always seemed to be just the right difficulty. What really keeps my interest here is the characters. The banter/dialog from segment to segment really makes you want to see how the story will play out for all parties involves.

I did struggle a bit with some difficulty spikes towards the end of game (playing on normal), but this didn't detract much from the overall experience of the game. Other small gripes would be the hand-to-hand combat left much to be desired (normally just getting you killed by other enemies in gunfights). I also found the stealth mechanic really not being fleshed out enough to be viable (which, thankfully, is almost always optional).

As a whole I really enjoyed my playthrough of U2 and would recommend it to anyone trying to get into the series. The developments in story, characters, and dialog to me really show how this game is where Naughty Dog got its legs to prepare for its future iconic work of TLOU part 1.

The saga's best.
Finishing it on max difficulty was painful but rewarding.
