Gamescom: Uncharted 2 breaks the ice

Gamescom: Uncharted 2 breaks the ice

Cologne, eve of Gamescom 2009. If the announcement of the long-awaited Playstation 3 Slim was undoubtly the highlight of Sony's press conference, it is the new trailer of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves that made the evening. A colorful montage of spectacular cinematic clips, served by beautiful graphics and dramatic music. A promise of adventure we believed only Hollywood would be able to make. Boy, was it about time we'd be proven wrong. Update: 720p version available.

Freaking Naughty Dog, they should be proud of what they have achieved.

The guy sounds a lot like Nathan Fillion. This game looks so fucking good.

Amazing. This is how I always like my games to be. Sony's biggest asset, IMO. Now all we need is a new Jak game...

I'm still really worried the gunplay will be as bad as the first game, but everything else was pretty good like the platforming and level design. I find Drake to be almost as unlikable as Dante, but that's a really minor gripe. Graphics are simply stunning as always and I love the way the set locations.

I hope this ends up being the game I was hoping for out of the first one. Basically just make the combat work better and it will be a game worth the attention.

Damn looks really good. The aiming and cover system is just about the best and plays like gears 2/mass effect so I don't know what you guys are smokin....

I have nothing bad to say about this game. Maybe, it might be too short :P

Looks brilliant! I hope this one is at least 10 to 12 hours long (even though that's still much too short).

Great Music, Great Pictures. But they don't really work together for me. You just see too many Action for this kind of Music.
Just my Critic to the Trailer.
The Game will probably be very, very good.

Adding orchestra music is great, adds much more cinematic mood to it like it is a movie, which Uncharted series pretty much feels like one...samething with MGS series.
The music seems to be from the from the game, you can hear some pieces of the Uncharted theme being there.
I only listen to orchestra OSTs (and trailer music) so this one was beautiful, good work composer.

Anyway, the game looks so freaking fantastic, one of the best out there.

Being relatively new to the PS3 party (grrr bloody slim and pricedrop) I only ever played the demo for the first Uncharted and found the shooting to be a little bit weak compared to the climbing and exploring aspects. Hopefully the sequel will improve and address this and it looks as if it will I am all over it like a bum on a baloney sandwich.

NOW this trailer does give you goosebumps unlike that Heavy Rain trailer.

The way that Naughty Dog make you genuinely care about the characters makes it all the more involving when they’re put in dangerous situations. In Drakes Fortune when Navarro hit Elena I wanted to kill him, now it looks like Zorin putting a gun to her head will have the same effect.

Easily my most anticipated game atm.

Spot on.

First game was awesome.

This will be even better.

  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Little things that could have elevated the game from being just 'OK' to deserving the praise it got. (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite another solution for repetitive combat and progression is a weapon maintenance system, sparser ammo, and making each machine have a unique invulnerability to certain attacks. (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A simple solution would have been a command wheel function for overridden machines. Attack, defend, stay, suicide attack, follow etc (9 Hours ago)

    MrWhite the maps design didn't facilitate it. Like I say, poor design everywhere. (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Tiz: I just think its sloppy AI coding, and just a general lack of want of doing it that way. One other reason is the on rails system for automatic riding (9 Hours ago)
