Let me tell you, as one of the first games I've played on my PS3 it blew me away. Great story, game play and graphics, I didn't want to put it down. If you haven't rented this yet do so right now you won't be disappointed. This is the game Tomb Raider should have evolved into.
I just finished this game last night and have to say that it was the best game I have played for a long time. I would have rated it just under a 10 because of the controls from time to time. There are times you can not make the character grab onto to something he is supposed to. It is not a big problem at all but about the only one I could find. The graphics are amazing and the storyline really keeps you playing. I would recommend this game to anyone! I am hopeful that they make a third in the series. It is a story that they could easily come up with more and more. This game is just below the God of War series and just above the Assassins Creed in my opinion. Now I just have to wait until March to see if the third God of War lives up the the past two.

It is finally here. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves! You play as your favorite every-man Nathan Drake. You start the game in the middle of the story, bleeding. Blood at the first of the game? Yes sir! U2:AT follows the same premise of the first Uncharted. There is lost treasure out there, and you need to find it before the other treasure hunters do. This time you are searching out the lost fleet of the famed Marco Polo. Let me say the story does not let you down. There are the familiar faces from the first Uncharted as well as some new (and sexy) characters to love. The mechanics of the actual combat have been improved as well as the graphics. Multiplayer has been added with co-op and competitive modes. I give Uncharted 2: Among Thieves a 9 out of 10 only because I would like to see more than just 10 - 15 hours of gameplay from a game that could easily be the first PS3 game to use the blu-ray to run at least 30 hours of gameplay.
