‘Universal Acclaim’ for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

October 1, 2009 Written by Kishen Patel


Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, plain and simple, is set to be this year’s flagship masterpiece for the PlayStation 3. From the trifecta of awards at all 2009 trade show events to the already impressive multiplayer beta, there is no denying that Naughty Dog has set its sights to carve a new benchmark in this generation.

In an unsurprising turnout, the third-person action/adventure has received rave reviews from the masses, or as Metacritic calls it, “universal acclaim”. But not just the typical universal acclaim.


Averaging at a score of 98-out-of-100 across the major video game industry publications, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is currently the second-highest rated PS3 only title trailing behind Grand Theft Auto IV (also averaging at a 98% meta-score).

Uncharted 2 has already shaped up to be a must-have title for any PlayStation 3 owner. Will you be picking up the sequel to Nathan Drake’s latest expedition? Or is another title in the horizon?
