Uncharted 2: mission accomplished

Have just finished Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Guys, I'm impressed! The game was not only the most fascinating adventure, but very likely the best game experience I've ever had. This game is the biggest reason for buying PlayStation 3 console, really!



The screen shots were taken from gotps3.ru, which is my favorite Russian PS3 fan-site.


Description from Wikipedia


Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is an action-adventure video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3. It is the sequel to the 2007 game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.



Gameplay:
Uncharted 2 is an action-adventure game played from a third-person perspective, with the player in control of Nathan Drake. Nathan is physically adept and is able to jump, climb, and scale narrow ledges and wall faces to get between points. Nathan can be equipped with up to two firearms — one single-handed and one two-handed — and a limited supply of grenades.
Some areas of the game require the player to solve a puzzle with the use of Nathan's diary that provides clues towards its solution.



Plot:
Among Thieves picks up roughly two years after the events of Drake's Fortune. Similar to the previous story, Nathan "Nate" Drake’s new adventure revolves around an unsolved historical mystery, the doomed voyage home of Marco Polo from China in 1292. After spending almost 20 years in the court of the Mongol Emperor Kublai Khan, Marco Polo departed with 14 ships and over 600 passengers and crew – but when he arrived at his destination a year and a half later, only one ship remained, and only 18 of the passengers had survived. Although Marco Polo described almost every other aspect of his journeys in minute detail, he never revealed what happened to the ships that were lost.





Отсебятина


Игра воистину удивительная. Первая часть была хороша, но вторая попросту поражает воображение. На протяжении всех 26 глав, из которых она состоит, меня не покидало ощущение того, что нахожусь в фильме. Именно так, не смотрю, а нахожусь. По правде говоря, я настороженно отношусь к играм, напичканным роликами - попросту потому что обычно все эти ролики плохо проработаны, скучны и обрекают игрока скорее лицезреть происходящее, нежели участвовать в нем. Но только не в случае с Uncharted! В этой игре проработана каждая мелочь и нет ничего, что хотелось бы выкинуть. Это не второсортный боевичок, это шедевр. Шедевр, в котором нельзя предугадать сюжет, не получается заглянуть в тайные помысли героев. Да от него просто невозможно оторваться!

Второй Uncharted расширил количество персонажей и не промахнулся. Нашим новым героям присущи и коварство, и слабости, и глубокие чувства, а от того мир "воров" сразу становится если не родным и близким, то понятным и убедительным. А еще новые соратники Дрейка бойко бегают за ним, разбавляя (и без того умопомрачительные) приключения глав-героя свои шутками и советами, которые, кстати говоря, не всегда оказываются удачными.
Да, роликов действительно много, но - каждый из них уникален, что в купе с отличнейшей графикой влюбляет в Uncharted сразу и бесповоротно. И гейм-плей не отстает! И чего только бедному Дрейку не приходится вытворять - и отстреливаться от врагов, таща на спине раненого товарща, и прыгать по мчащимся на высокой скорости машинам, и в одиночку противостоять военному танку. Единственное, что несколько уступает общему уровню игры - это головоломки. Или у меня рука набита, или задачки - детский сад. Но в любом случае их очень мало.



Единственное, о чем я мечтаю сейчас - это чтобы они не лажанулись с фильмом по Uncharted'у. Например, если вы спросите меня, то фильмы по Tomb Raider'у - трэшня.

I'd like to get to play this eventually. I couldn't play the first one because something about the graphics really bothered my eyes. I'm glad to see that it seems that's gone in this one.

Hmmm... I'm not sure what you're talking about. Mb the graphics were a bit more poor at first one, but I can't see any fundamental differences. And I find it's great! Anyway, I hope you and your admirer will like it. Actually, it's a classical boyish game with guns, explosions and stuff like this ^^

I'm not really sure how to say it, as I was really the only one that seemed to have that problem in the first place. >_< It wasn't so much as 'the graphics were bad' or anything, but just that there was some effect or something that my eyes just didn't quite like. My eyes are weird.

I tend to like more boyish things anyways. ^^ Not so much as those FPS kill-fests, but action-adventures are always good!

What's your favorite action-adventure? Prince Persia? Or Tomb Raider mb? ^^
I'm happy we have gamers here. I can't say what I like best - games or anime :)

Btw, is your eyesight good?

I like both Prince of Persia and Tomb Raider, actually. I just here recently got the last installment of PoP, for the amazing deal of $1! XD Haven't gotten around to playing it just yet.

I wouldn't really say it's good. I have to wear glasses, and it's really difficult to see without them. I don't see how I went as many years as I did without them. ^^;

Oh, but many people do have to wear glasses. Don't be upset because of it :) Meganekko ^_^

I don't really mind wearing glasses. There's just certain times where they become inconvenient. Like for Halloween, I wanted to wear a mask. It's hard enough to see out of those things, with the tiny holes they give you. I'd get a pair of contacts, but they're too expensive for something I'd only use 2-3 times a year. I'll probably give up and get some once I can actually start cosplaying. ^^
