Uncharted 2: Among Thieves



Uncharted 2: Among Thieves mimics the action movie blockbuster superbly -- which is to say it’s hugely entertaining, but also kinda dumb. It's essentially a generic slice of Indiana Jones Lite, with some Tomb Raider thrown in for good measure.

The epic set pieces in Uncharted 2 are offset by some very pedestrian storytelling. Sure, the characters are engaging and likeable, but the tale they star in is completely bereft of innovation. Throw Tia Carrere into the mix and you could be watching an episode of Relic Hunter (with slighty higher production values). To top it off, it suffers from a hugely underwhelming ending: one of the biggest no-nos of effective storytelling.

Like Michael Bay's cinematic oeuvre, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is all about the quips and the spectacle.

I want to kill the article writer, strangle him with his fking intestines and pluck his eyes out with a screwdriver.

Wow, all these negative comments really do point to over-zealous fanboys who need to get laid. "I want to kill the article writer?" please loser. I don't mind this slideshow, even though i love Tekken's backstories.
