Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (Sony PlayStation 3, 2009)
About this product
|The roguish fortune-hunter hero Nathan Drake returns in Among Thieves, a high-adventure follow-up to the original Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. In action, Drake employs a movie-set worthy of the most daring video game tomb raiders and relic hunters, with agile running and jumping, light hand-to-hand combat, and a noteworthy talent with small arms. These skills are put to use as the hero once again finds himself adventuring in the wilderness, facing a tricky location-based platform puzzles or vastly outnumbered by bands of violent, heartless bandits. The game runs on the developer's own engine. The character is designed to move with a smooth, realistic flow as he runs, sneaks, climbs, and fires his weapon from nearly any position -- behind makeshift cover, or even while hanging by his fingertips from high on a cliff face or treetop vine. The action shifts seamlessly from one scene to the next, with no loading screens.|
In this adventure, Drake seeks answers to the mystery of Marco Polo's lost fleet. Great riches and wisdom are tied to the fate of ships and treasure that left China with the famous explorer at the end of the 13th century, but did not arrive with him back home at his final destination. Although Marco Polo took the secrets of the lost ships and crew to his grave, Drake seeks answers on a journey through history, to the fabled Himalayan valley of Shangri-La. The key to the mystery may be a legendary sapphire, known as the "wish-fulfilling jewel." Magical properties or no, the billions of dollars the stone would be worth in modern markets should be enough to make nearly any wish come true. In addition to the main single-player story, the game features cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes. Among Thieves was developed by Naughty Dog, the studio that created the original Uncharted as well as other successful Sony-system exclusives.

Great Price and Great Games
I received these 2 best selling games at a massive discount, even though they are used, they came as if they were brand new, no scratches or anything.

Great value, amazing game!
This is the best game of the Uncharted franchise in my opinion - it's got amazing graphics, storytelling and set pieces! There are loads of ancient puzzles to solve, balanced with gun play and action and throughout it keeps a fast, engaging pace with great characters.

meets or exceeds all expecations
I had very high expections for this game weeks before it was released. I watched lots of trailers, reviews, read about it.
As high as they were, the game continues to meet those expecatitions. By far the greatest game I have ever had the opportunity to play. I am one of those that gets a new game, beat it and sell it on ebay to get the most money i can get back just to turn around and get another new game, THIS GAME IS NOT GETTING SOLD. Worth every penny and I will be keeping it.

Game Of The Year
First off, this game is very addicting and Its has 23 long chapters. One of the first things I look at in a game is how long it is. Since, The storyline is so good it supports the length of the game. Uncharted 2 is about a treasure hunter named Nathan Drake who uncovers the truth about Marco Polo's lost fleet. This game is like your playing the main star in a Hollywood movie. There is also a little super natural twist at the end of the game. The controls in the game work perfectly and there are tons of good weapons in the game. My favorite is the sniper rifle, witch is a one shoot kill on most enemies. Overall this game is a must buy and if you don't believe me go rent it to see for yourself.
