Since there is no STICKY I thought Id go ahead

Edit: Why the hell do I have two threads? :?

Edit 2: I put up the normal version now, guess no one liked what the Portugese had to say

The Good

"The exceptional voice actor Nolan North throws out a few gentle quips that conveys his characters puzzlement without every seeming contrived or scripted"

"The way Uncharted 2 unites its platform and action sequences is often its greatest strength, escaping the repetitive pattern of discrete alternating sequences in Drake's Fortune - and helping to manoeuvre the action between diverse locations in the process, which was another sticking point two years ago."

"Stocked with derivations on deathmatch and team games like capture-the-flag, king-of-the-hill and domination, the players' unusual agility, a good ranking system with credible perks and a satisfying choice of playlists make it an easy decision to stay on for the next game, and then several more"

"The decision to match everyone's loadouts and sprinkle marquee weapons around keeps you guessing, and there's lots of personality to each encounter: levels are repurposed and augmented single-player settings and a few have game-changing gimmicks attached, like a tank that rumbles through a village killing indiscriminately. It's also possible to hang from ledges and pull other players over your head as they approach for a quick kill."

"By the end of Uncharted 2 though, Drake has found his place in the world, and so has the developer - among giants."

The Bad

"There are also a few occasions where the platforming lets you down, often to a bloody pulp hundreds of metres below, despite the feeling you were jumping in the right direction."

"There are co-operative levels too, including something in the Horde/Firefight mould, although these arguably suffer from the same issues as the more extreme battles in the single-player, and multi-person tasks like pushing or lifting objects feel a little contrived."

Well Deserved Mr. Drake :)

Don't you read the NEWS?!

Why do I always have to keep telling people, I've been posting about the Portugal News at least once a week!

Axcording to Portugal News Monthly, the embargo rules doesn't have the same restrictions! Geez, am I the only one who reads the Portugal newpaper around here?

By the way, I'm joking. I can't tell you what's going on in this thread.

Dude, if they took out the crappy survival horror section, I'll buy Uncharted 2 this year. :) I just don't want another game that decides to crap out on me. That said, I liked Uncharted. I'm not trying to, like, damage control or some nonsense. I don't really do that.

Sure it does. There definitely have been some sites flopping big name games to get attention. Like flopping them badly.

I'm just curious, what will be your excuse when GameSpot gives Uncharted a 9+...Sony paying them and IGN off?

Are you implying I think they are? I don't know what Eurogamer Portugal's stance, viewpoints and opinions of stuff are, as I don't know what they are, since I can't understand them. So it's kind of absolutely pointless for me to make a judgment call on their validity either way. But it's certainly no less than Gamepro or what have you, since I know **** about those people as well. In the context of this game it doesn't even ****ing matter as everyone's giving this game crazy scores anyway.

Well than stop being a downer. Relize that there is a lot of people anxiously waiting for this game. Chime in when it actually receives a bad score which it hasn't. Hey the Spanish Zombies was a cool part of the game as it really sped up the game and made it more exciting. Stick with your GEOW.

Do you people really expect this game to not be good? Its Naughty Dog, its the PS3's title of the year, every preview and review so far has been glowing. You guys need like a million reviews to tell you a game is good?

On a side note, I wonder how many preorders would be cancelled if GS flopped this game...

It really did change the pace of the game for the better.
