Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is another continuation of the highly acclaimed game released in 2007, which told the tale of Nathan Drake, an adventurer and treasure hunter. Both games were developed by Naughty Dog, the company that created some well-known franchises and interesting characters (Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy).

Story

As usually, Nathan Drake gets himself into serious trouble, this time thanks to his old buddy Harry, who also introduces him to Chloe, a treasure huntress. The group follows the trail of a powerful artifact which can change the fate of the whole world. The mysterious stone is also targeted by ruthless thugs. Together with a group of old (among others, Sullivan and Elena, known from the original game, make a return) and new (Tenzin) characters you will visit many exotic locations, like Nepal, Tibet and the Himalaya).

Gameplay

The gameplay in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is similar to its predecessor. However, the developers decided to make it more varied and dynamic. The game mostly consists of two interweaving gameplay elements – action sequences and climbing combined with riddle solving. In this installment both of these elements were connected in a way, as the main protagonist can, for example, shoot while hanging from an edge.

The combat was made more spectacular thanks to new options. Nathan can use shields and explosive gas bottles or throw enemies from ledges. Many new weapons were added – a better shotgun, rifles, and grenade launchers. Enemy class system was added as well. The opponents are now divided into light, medium and heavy armored. The latter cannot be knocked out with a melee attack.

At many points of the game, you are accompanied by other characters (sometimes you will travel with as many as three) who will help you in combat. The riddle system has been changed as well. The journal is back, but this time you must search through it on your own to find valuable information and clues. When solving riddles, you will often cooperate with your allies, activating various mechanisms together.

Game modes

Online multiplayer is a completely new feature added to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The developers created a cooperative mode in which up to three players can participate. Together they will complete various scenarios related to the storyline of the game. Additionally, you can face other players in several competitive modes. In addition to the classic Deathmatch, you can, for example, play in Plunder mode in which you must steal a treasure and deliver it to your base.

Technology

Similarly to the first installment of the series, the graphic design of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is very impressive. The developers made use of basically all the power of PlayStation 3. Thanks to that, during the game you can watch very detailed locations and nice character models. The game presents a very cinematic experience, filled with dynamic action scenes (such as an escape from an armed helicopter) and cutscenes.
