First Uncharted 2 Review In


The first review for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is in. The review will be seen in the upcoming issue (November 2009) of PlayStation: The Official Magazine (in North America) and will be available on news stands and subscribers within the next couple weeks. The game has received a 5/5 of the magazine, and here’s Naughty Dog’s response:

Cracking open the issue, which features UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves as its cover, we were totally thrilled to see that our game received a perfect 5/5 AND the Editors’ Choice award for the month! We’ve been working incredibly hard over the past two years to make UNCHARTED 2 the best game we’ve made yet and we’re all smiles to hear that we’re not the only ones who think we’ve got something really great on our hands.

For those who pre-ordered from GameStop, you’ll have access to the multiplayer demo starting tomorrow. For those who haven’t, the demo will be made available to the public on the 29th. Good to see that PTOM gave the game a 5/5! I can’t wait to get a hold of the game myself! You can check out the original posting here. When it hits news stands, we’ll try to get some details from the ten page review, without spoiling anything. The game will be released on October 13th.

    The original is probably the best 3d platformer I’ve ever played. I hope the sequel can beat that.

    I’m typically a bit skeptical of exclusive reviews since it pretty much negates any impartiality that the reviewer should have but it’s been obvious from E3 on that this game would be excellent.

    Exclusive reviews don’t make me skeptical, but perfect scores for one of the few exclusives left from an official PS3 mag does. I guess what I’m saying is that I wouldn’t really expect anything different. I’m not a reader of the mag though, so maybe they’re completely honest about these things.

    Playstation mag is usually honest in their review, but a bit optimistic.

    PTOM can actually be pretty critical with their reviews. They’re fair and will point out faults in big-name first party exclusives, if there are any. My opinions on games pretty much coincide with what they give them anyway
