It's that funny time of year, when the summer's big releases have been and gone and all the most exciting games of the season are yet to come, so I present you with yet another pre-order deal! This time it's for the follow up to the popular and widely acclaimed PS3 exclusive: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, a sequel which is apparently even better than the first.
Currently ShopTo are offering the best deal for the regular edition, at just £32.95. However, Game are selling the Special Edition with steel-book casing (which I believe is exclusive to them so far) for just £39.99.
This special version gives you the following in addition to the game itself: special steel box, gold weapons: beretta and AK47, 2 postcards, Playstation 3 theme and multiplayer skins.
The action takes place a few years after the events of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune when Nathan Drake becomes embroiled in a historical mystery revolving around Marco Polo's ill-fated home voyage back from China in 1292. Drake's investigations soon turn into a hunt for the fabled Cintamani Stone, taking him deep into the Himalayas with the help of returning characters Elena and Sully and newbie Chloe Frazer.
In addition to the narrative-driven single player mode, Among Thieves also includes both competitive and co-op multiplayer options, with the competitive mode allowing up to ten players to pit themselves against each other at once.
The game has been extremely well reviewed so far with the French edition of PSM3 awarding it a ridiculous 21/20 as reported here. Other critics have been more realistic but nonetheless have slathered on the praise with few awarding it scores of less than 9 out 10 (or equivalent) and many suggesting that it may be the best exclusive that PS3 owners have seen so far.
