Kotaku had a “First Look” in on Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, an exclusive by Naughty Dog on the Playstation 3, and by the looks of it, it will be nothing short of amazing. The partner, Chloe Frazier, seems a bit interesting to say the least.
It’s good news to know that stealth portions of the game aren’t forced on to the player. But they boasted the ability of the player to chose “Combat or Stealth”. The visuals and physics is what is probably gonna interest me the most. They say the combat and animations are extremely smooth, what had me interested was the way they said Drake was blown back by the explosion of a fuel tank. Cinematic moments like that interest me the most. The urban environments in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is something to be admired. The art direction is pretty amazing, and the graphics pull it off quite well. When they said they’d be using the PS3 to the max capabilities, they weren’t joking.
This isn’t going to be just some random action packed game. This game will appeal to the masses in pretty much every way. It has a decent story, amazing action, amazing visuals and the music probably won’t disappoint. This game is easily one of the Game of The Year contendors already, and it hasn’t even been released yet. Naughty Dog is doing a great job with this one.
