This is the first time that I have played Uncharted. It is an amazing game from the graphics to the game play. Really enjoy the openness to the worlds and the chance that you have to explore them. Will definitely be buying this game. Has an awesome replay value. The only one issue that I have with the game is the camera. At times it can be very difficult when you have something chasing you and you can't focus on something in front of Drake. But other than that there is nothing wrong with this game. OUTSTANDING!!!

This is the first time I have given a game a perfect 10, and I think it was a well deserved one! No wonder why uncharted 2 got game of the year, it was everything I look for in a game. The story line, weapons, enemies, and visuals were well thought out and brought out realistically! Drake was even more gutsy in this installment of Uncharted and the humor never fails in this franchise. Naughty Dog has something going with this name and I hope they can make it lasts with more stories.
The controls are very fluid and smooth, once you get the hang of them. The camera angles are almost always in the right spot and the voice overs kept me thoroughly involved. I really like games with mysterious story backgrounds and tales of mystic treasures. Especially when you can battle enemies with various weapons or use hand-to-hand combat. I didn't use much of the melee attacks in the first Uncharted, but I became skilled with silent attacks in this one! All in all a very great buy/play, I just pray they make more installments. Have fun playing!

After going through the first game when it was first released back in 07, I was astonished by the level of quality and game play Uncharted: Drakes Fortune delivered. It was by far the best adventure game I have ever played this generation and I was awaiting with anticipation for a sequel.
Uncharted 2 exceeded all of my expectations. The level of quality, game play, story, sound, everything was refined to perfection and bundled in this one game. After playing through Killzone 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4, I was with the assumption that the limits of the PS3 had finally been reached. I was wrong. This game just took it into a whole different dimension, a taste of what next generation of gaming will be like.
The game immediately takes you into a cinematic level where you must do everything in your power to survive; I swear I've never jumped out of my seat when I was engaged in a blood pumping experience, it was thrilling and enjoyable but also funny with Drake's priceless humor. The game sucks you deep into its world with a beautifully executed story line and character development but also intense action and game play that will keep your adrenaline pumping.
If Uncharted 2 gave me this much of a thrill going through, then I can't imagine what Uncharted 3 will bring us. Anyone who owns a Playstation 3 or is thinking of purchasing one should definitely buy this game!. I highly recommend it!.
