Uncharted 2: Among Thieves has received almost unanimous high-praise from media outlets (including PSLS’s 5/5 Editor’s Choice Award), however, this latest nod, not from a media outlet, may be the highest yet. 3D Realms’ George Broussard has some high remarks regarding Nathan Drake’s latest adventure.
Speaking on Shacknews’ forums, Broussard compared Uncharted 2’s singleplayer to that of Half Life 1 / 2. That, in itself, is quite impressive. However, one must read all of his comments to get a sense of his excitement.
“Finshed Uncharted 1 today. It was f**king badass.
Started and am playing Uncharted 2 now. It’s badasser in every way.
If you own a PS3, buy and play BOTH games. Play Uncharted 1 first. If you don’t own a PS3, play the game with a friend who has one.
Amazing single player experiences, nearly, if not, on par with Half-Life 1/2. I haven’t felt this giddy over a game series since Half-Life.
This is epic badassery right here. Believe the hype.”
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is in store’s shelves now. As of the time of this writing, Uncharted 2 has achieved an incredible 96/100 on Metacritic–making it the highest rated PS3 game of all time.
