Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune was undoubtedly one of the best PlayStation 3 titles when it released in 2007. And to this date, the Naughty Dog action-adventure title showcases graphics that even rival some of 2009’s current generation releases. As Uncharted 2: Among Thieves nears its release date, the game is already looking like it is ready for release.

One aspect the original Uncharted was recognized for were the lush, organic environments–especially the water. Not only did the water look great, the effects also behaved realistically, from the waves pushing against the jet ski in the upriver traversal to real-time rendering of dampening clothing.

The sequel, Uncharted 2, looks to have broken the record that the original title set in terms of environment already.

With these results already coming from a title that is not even in the final stages of development, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will truly be the best looking console game when it releases on October 13.

[Update] It turns out this is an Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune screenshot.  We apologize for any inconvience.
