Averaging a whopping score of 96 on MetaCritic, Uncharted 2 delivered an intense, cinematic experience quite unlike any other. Games often aspire to be like films, and often achieve a certain approximation of their favourite influences, but Uncharted 2 can truly stand toe-to-toe with great action-adventure films like Indiana Jones and National Treasure.
Bolstered with perhaps the best videogame visuals to date, Uncharted 2 also provides a story that is both well-told and well-written. Drake is a grounded, believable and, more importantly, likable protagonist, and the cast of supporting characters do a great job of providing moral support and villainous danger. All of the game's cut scenes were voiced and performed by the actual actors themselves, which lends the vocals and animations a sense of belonging, that instead of being paired together in different recording booths and animation centers, they originated from the same moment, and the same person.
Uncharted 2, along with its gripping single-player campaign, offers a robust multiplayer arena, replete with varied game-types, unlockable weapons and skills, and graphics to match. It proved to be surprisingly popular, especially considering it had no fan-base to begin with, whatsoever, with the last Uncharted game being a single-player offering only.
