UNCHARTED 2 First Online Reviews

Arne Meyer's Avatar Posted by on Sep 18, 2009 // Director of Communications, Naughty Dog

Things are picking up steam for us as we head into the final weeks before UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves releases worldwide in October. It’s hard to believe that just nine months ago, we announced UNCHARTED 2 with our “Cliffhanger” trailer at the 2008 SPIKE Video Game Awards. We took the next few months to slowly tease out more information on our single-player campaign until we dropped the bomb in late April that we were including multiplayer gameplay modes in UNCHARTED 2. Everyone at Naughty Dog worked exceptionally hard to get those modes ready to provide everyone with a small preview of what we were up to when we launched our Multiplayer Beta during E3 2009. Not only did we feel great that everyone was finally getting some hands-on time with UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer, but we were equally stoked to end E3 2009 with over 20 awards, including 6 “Best in Show” awards.


Since then, we’ve spent all our time putting the finishing touches on the game and we were able to recently announce that UNCHARTED 2 had gone gold. Since then, we’ve been eagerly waiting to see what game critics have thought about our game and we’re just now starting to see the reviews come in. Earlier this week, we were absolutely thrilled to see our first review garnering a 5 out of 5 and Editors’ Choice Award in the November 2009 issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine. Then, today, we received two more reviews – IGN had the exclusive review and gave UNCHARTED 2 a 9.5 out of 10 and GamesRadar UK chimed in with another perfect 10 out of 10. Needless to say, we can’t wait to read the rest of the reviews over the next few weeks!

Don’t forget that just because we release on October 13, 2009, doesn’t mean you can’t get some hands on time with UNCHARTED 2 before we launch – our Multiplayer Demo will be available to everyone via PlayStation Network on September 29 or, if you pre-order a copy at GameStop now, you can jump in today!

If you do play the Multiplayer Demo, keep a sharp eye out as you’re playing anytime over the next four weeks – a bunch of Naughty Dogs will be playing with you! You can spot us by the red paw next to our PlayStation Network ID in Multiplayer matches and some of us will also be using unique Naughty Dog character skins – Nathan Drake and a pirate from UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune, both wearing a Naughty Dog shirt.

I must say the 1st Uncharted is one of my favorite games of all-time! It is my favorite game on the PS3. I’m an older gamer(gaming for 20+years) with a family and I found your first game just refreshing. The little things like humor and interaction that the characters had with each other were fantastic.(gameplay and graphics were nice too):)

I enjoyed the first UC2 beta, today I just got the GS code so I can participate again in the new beta/demo. I can’t wait for the second game! The reviews have only made the wait for the game even harder.
Great job ND!


+ Mooblar on September 19th, 2009 at 7:27 pm said:

wow, i want this game NOW!

i can’t pre order it though T_T

Man i wish i put more time in the first closed multiplayer beta when i had the chance, Stupid InFamous (i love that game)


+ Marskman_BR on September 19th, 2009 at 8:27 pm said:

+ OriginalKrauser on September 19th, 2009 at 8:43 pm said:

+ KILLA_KING_007 on September 20th, 2009 at 12:57 am said:

This game looks totally awesome can’t wait to play it :)


+ Hawk_Manson on September 20th, 2009 at 2:53 am said:

Excellent, good estimates. Well, a little left to wait for game release. I’d like to win UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Fortune Hunter Edition.


+ BlackyAngelz on September 20th, 2009 at 7:25 am said:

pls very importent for me before i might preorder: does the game has split screen to play with friends on the same machine?


+ shadow-warlord on September 20th, 2009 at 8:09 am said:

Everyone this is an important question. Is the Fortune Hunter edition available in all countries or only U.S. I mean if i live in Greece can i win it or is it only available in specific countries? An if it is in which countries?


+ Latster on September 20th, 2009 at 9:14 am said:

I am assuming the idea to give 200 copies of the Fortune Hunter edition of U2 has been scrapped because Sony/ND/whoever have realised it was more of a slap in the face to all but 200 fans who wanted a piece of the pie. There seems to have been no news and no response to our questions about this matter or how the US citizens can even win one, since it was announced.

If it turns out that it will be released for us to buy, then I will scream with joy!


+ DevilsReject on September 20th, 2009 at 9:18 am said:

I’d love to win the Fortune edition, but would be just as happy if everyone had a chance to purchase one that wanted one, make it happen you dirty dogs! ;)


+ ChainClutch on September 20th, 2009 at 12:42 pm said:

Yea this is gonna be a huge huge hit for the PS3, I’m sure it shouldnt have a problem hitting over one million sales worldwide on release day… cant wait for it!


+ TornadoZadar on September 20th, 2009 at 12:52 pm said:

@ noetts: Go to and subscribe for one month ($7), and you should be able to get the beta key.

@ BlackyAngelz: Arne said that there’s no split-screen (page 2), sorry.


+ BeKuki on September 20th, 2009 at 1:41 pm said:

It only gets better and better, cant wait for it! Good job Naughty Dog! Keep it up, its you guys that make us love to play games!!


+ GC1107 on September 20th, 2009 at 2:42 pm said:

+ warkbt on September 20th, 2009 at 7:21 pm said:

what about the autosave? it is the same crap as the first one?


+ ivanramon on September 20th, 2009 at 8:53 pm said:

Awesome…I cant wait for this game. It will deffinatelly cause problems with my girlfriend!=(
Its all your fault naughty dog, for making such an awesome franchize!


+ Gaffi on September 20th, 2009 at 9:30 pm said:

I am so far very impressed. I think the stealth kills are definitely the most underrated addition as they seem to add a ton to the strategy element since the first game. Also why can’t we stealth one hit kill in multiplayer?

+ Kingscorpion81 on September 21st, 2009 at 11:58 am said:

Congrats ND! The game is awesome! I just wish Uncharted 2 had a sprint option so you can get to places quicker on the multplayer maps.


+ thakash on September 21st, 2009 at 12:22 pm said:

Naughty Dog…you guys Rock….can’t wait till 13th Oct. to pick up my pre-order.


+ jj_spaceman on September 21st, 2009 at 1:30 pm said:

To echo much of the sentiment here, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (my introduction to the PS3, and the Playstation console in general) was an amazing game in pretty much every way, so I’m definitely looking forward to this, too. Have had it on pre-order from Amazon for close to 6 months, I think. Hopefully I’ll have a shot at the Fortune Hunter Edition, too, as that looks pretty nifty.


+ MonkeyGibber on September 21st, 2009 at 2:24 pm said:

I loved the 1st game, loved the beta, loving the current multiplayer demo…can’t wait to play the game!

Hope there’s plenty of chances to win the Fortune Hunter Edition….I must have it!


+ FIREKNIGHT2029 on September 21st, 2009 at 7:02 pm said:

Uncharted 2 is my personal game of the year and that’s saying a ot. With all the great games this year like KZ2, Infamous, MW2, Street Fighter 4 etc. Uncharted stood out the most for me. It’s simply amazing how much the folks at Naught Dog were able to do with this game. I’m in the multiplayer beta and I just keep getting blown away by the graphics and gameplay in this game. I can’t wait for it to release next month!!!


+ johnmaz60 on September 21st, 2009 at 8:33 pm said:

The first one was great. Looking forward to the second.


+ C_Y_P_H_E_R on September 21st, 2009 at 9:09 pm said:

I’m glad this is exclusive.


+ funnyfan12 on September 21st, 2009 at 9:10 pm said:

+ twizted_diablo on September 27th, 2009 at 9:18 pm said:

I play the MP demo everyday and probably will all the way up to the release date. I wonder if they are going to do a midnight release. If so, I want to take the day off so I can play it :D


+ Gurflob on September 28th, 2009 at 9:24 am said:

I’ve been having a blast with the beta, but how many stats are going to get wiped out when the full game is released? What about the saved replays?


+ Kratos9821906250 on October 5th, 2009 at 9:12 am said:

Already pre ordered, can’t wait …….still more 10 days to go.

Naughty dog Uncharted team amazing work, keep it up.

Sony u r the guys who made this possible on the PS3.

I had a choice for Christmas Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare 2…………with no doubt i choose Uncharted 2.

Sony now waiting for the release of god of War 3 Ultimate edition.

PS3 rocks……….Xbox 360 sucks.

Hope so we see Uncharted 3 in 2011…… :)
