after completeing the game, playing again to take in more of the exquisit visuals and finding missed treasures. Its only fault will be that its to linear to keep replaying.
Other than that Naughty Dog has been a very good dog!!!!!!!
If I could I'd give it a 9.7. 3/10 deduction only for linear play.
Great humor, voice acting, facial expressions etc truly does make this feel as if you are playing as a real movie character. I hope that there is a 3 peat to this or Naughty Dog can provide the same development in another title.

Indiana Jones can hang up his hat and whip. Lara Croft can retire to her mansion. Action adventure has a new treasure hunting king, and his name is Nathan Drake. "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" was a masterpiece, with it's great story, incredible visuals, tight controls, and awesome voice acting. Now its sequel "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves" has arrived, and it is everything an excellent sequel should be. The story is bigger, the controls even tighter, and the visuals even more jaw dropping. And the stellar voice acting is back, bringing along a few new characters for Nate to deal with in his adventures. With all the coverage this game has gotten, there's really not much more to say. The game is awesome, and it's one to point to as a reason to get out and buy a PS3. It's that good. Absolutely incredible! I can't wait for the next installment!

the game is fenomenal the level of cinematic detail is amazing Signs bend under Drake's weight, balconies dip when he vaults onto them, and the general level of destruction and dilapidation is clearly evident as Drake platforms around the city.
The core of the combat remains the same, which is cover-based gunplay that rewards patience and quick timing.Altogether, if you were a fan of the original game, there's a lot to be excited about here so definitely rent it i would be amazed if its not gona be game of the year.its that good
