Uncharted 2 Game of the Year Edition Clambering onto Retail Shelves in October

If there was ever a title worthy of receiving the “Game of the Year” moniker and a subsequent release filled with extra content, it would be Uncharted 2. Scoring a perfect 10 in our review and praised by countless other publications, Uncharted 2 took Nathan Drake’s half-tucked antics to dizzying new heights, providing a story and gameplay experience like none other.
