Conclusion: Uncharted 2 features returning character Nathan Drake, who ends his brief vacation when prospected by two acquainting thieves to help decode the clues left by Marco Polo that opens the way to Shambala, a mythical city said to house a magical stone that will bestow power and immortality to whoever possesses it.
Excerpt: It’s Like… …the video game equivalent of a big budget action flick. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the most cinematic experience this side of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and dare I say the Oscar goes to… Uncharted 2: Among Thieves! Picking up shortly after the events of Drake’s Fortune, fictional treasure hunter Nathan Drake is lured back into the fortune seeking business when his British counterpart Harry Flynn invites him to seek out the lost fleet of...
Summary: Hey guys, have you heard about this game Uncharted 2: Among Thieves ? It's the follow-up to Naughty Dog's 2007 PlayStation 3 exclusive, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune . In the sequel, treasure hunter Nathan Drake chases the secrets of Marco Polo, falls down a lot, and blows a bunch of stuff up. The back of the box has this guy Nathan punching a dude in the face, firing a gun, and getting shot at by a helicopter.
Excerpt: Summary [9.8 out of 10] The long awaited sequel to (in my estimation) the best Playstation 3 game of all time, Uncharted 2 picks up with Nathan Drake about a year after the events of the first game and finds him embroiled in a search for Marco Polo’s lost treasure. The story takes you across the globe and offers up all the same awesomeness the first one had and then some.
Summary: Parents need to know that Uncharted 2 is rated "Teen" because it includes shooting, grenade throwing, and fist-fighting, plus some blood can be seen on the main character Nathan and his defeated enemies. It's not overly violent or gory, mind you, but isn't for young kids or tweens. The game also contains some profanity and sexual references (including a female player seductively sitting on top of a male character while on a bed).
Conclusion: With a bit more polish, especially in the audio department, Cricket Revolution could be the cricket game of choice. As it stands now, it is just a rung below the big boys of EA Cricket and Codemasters cricket series ( Ashes 2009 being the most recent). The difficulty level could also be a turn off to new players, but after some practice, the game become much easier and is in fact quite intuitive. But the gameplay itself makes the game enjoyable.
Summary: Among Thieves is an excellent continuation of the Uncharted gameplay, if not the actual storyline. Get it for the single player and stay for the multiplayer, Uncharted 2 is easily one of the best games on the suddenly resurgent Playstation 3, and certainly a contender for game of the year.
Excerpt: Ah Ivalice, home of seventeen-year-olds, swinging claymore swords about as if they were made out of paper mache. Where rabbits wear lingerie and where-ah sod it, this game is amazing, that’s all you really need to know. If you were a fan of the PS2 original, Final Fantasy XII then you already know that this is an essential purchase.
Excerpt: Set a couple of years after the end of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune; Uncharted 2 brings a bloody, battered Nathan Drake back to our screens. The filmic reference used deliberately because the game oozes movie style in music, camera shot, style and acting. You start in trouble and things fail to get easier. To talk plot would spoil the game but Among Thieves finely balances well used clichés with an exceptionally written scenario.
