    mobmarkymark's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3)

    [October 22, 2012 10:49:39 PM]
    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, the sequel to Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, is one of the best-rounded games I have ever played. The clean and easy mechanics are complemented nicely by an absolutely amazing story. The mechanics of the game include moving around in all directions, shooting, fighting, throwing objects, picking up objects, talking to allies and enemies, and managing and inventory of weapons. There aren't too many aspects to the mechanics of the game that one would find surprising or groundbreaking. However, the mechanics cover all the bases in terms of what the game requires. Where Uncharted 2: Among Thieves truly shines is in its plot. Personally, I played Uncharted 2 numerous times through on various difficulties. Prior to this game, I had never been so immersed in a game’s narrative. I kept repeating to myself throughout playing the game that “this is the best game I've ever played by far.” One element of the plot that makes it so immersive and believable is the voice acting. The voice acting in Uncharted 2 is extraordinary to say the least. In addition, the original musical compositions create an atmosphere for the game that could not have been achieved otherwise. The story includes elements of action, suspense, and humor to make it extremely fun and entertaining. The game also uses a series of embedded narratives in addition to the emergent narrative to give it more of a movie-like feel. The entire game feels like a movie in which you are a movie star – and a critically acclaimed movie at that. Not to mention, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (despite the lack of hype that a Call of Duty game would receive) was extremely well received by the community. It received extremely high ratings and won many “game of the year” awards. In terms of the narrative of a video game, Uncharted 2 surpasses any other game I have ever played. It is a truly fun and satisfying playing experience that no one should miss out on.
