In terms of the combat, while the controls can still be a little wonky at times, Naughty Dog certainly improved upon them. I found the firefights weren't as tedious and honestly fun. What my gripe about the first game is is that the gameplay itself is not particularly fun. The story and characters essentially carry that game. This game improves upon the shooting sections, but adds more platforming sections, puzzles, and crazy action sequences to the game which the first game lacks. It makes for an ultimately fun game. The train section is just epic and the fight through the city on the rooftops is fun. However, while the game does add more of this, it still could have used more crazy sections like the train in particularly. It was definitely the most memorable action sequence of the game.
Now Uncharted is a game notably known for its story. Among Thieves once again finds Nathan Drake seemingly done with the treasure hunting business only to be lured back into it by old associates on a quest to find yet another lost city, but this time it is Shambala. This takes Drake on a quest around SE Asia and particularly the Himalayas region. This simply provides for a beautiful backdrop to this game and man does it look beautiful. The story itself is excellent. The villains are better than that of the first game, but the main antagonist is still just a throw away villain, typical power hungry guy.
To sum it up, Uncharted 2 is the game that makes this franchise great. It improves upon the gameplay aspects of the first game and delivers a fun experience. The story is great and the main cast of characters are great. Awesome game.
I'll be honest with you, the game was ready back then, I wasn't.
Last weekend, out of boredom, I've decided to give it try, only this time I kept on playing. And I have played it for 3 days, completely blown away!
You know, every now and then a fantastic game comes out that stands above all. I knew that Heavy Rain or Little Big Planet are those games, but I never thought Uncharted 2 would be in that category. And it's not! It's even better. This game ladies and gentlemen is simply put, a masterpiece. This is the game that stands above those amazing games. What makes me rave about this so much? I'll explain:
This game is from 2009! You could buy this game today for PS3 and still go WOW over the graphics. They visual side of this game is beautiful. I have not seen a game with such a spectacular scenery, color vibrancy, variety of surroundings and views. Just as strong as the graphics is the story. It catches you within the first hour and never let's go. This is a story of a guy that somehow becomes YOU. And he lives through a story that becomes YOUR story. And then, there is the final component besides the game play that makes this game so unique, the music. I am going to describe the music in three simple letters: OMG. I have not ever seen/heard video, gameplay, sounds and music compliment each other this much.
I now understand that here are games that have game play and music. This game IS the game play, IS the music, this game IS the graphics. This game IS all that. That is why Uncharted is so special. I bow to Naughty Dog, the creators of Crash Bandicoot, for this game. It is, truly, an experience every gamer needs to have. It packs adventure, action, amazing story line, lots of excitement, humor too and even nice butts.
I myself am a FPS type of a player and I don't even like 3rd person view games. Still love it the game this much. Worth every penny as it gives you the experience of a lifetime. If you just liked Lara Croft, this game will make you fall in love unconditionally with this genre.
Please, play it.

The only problem if there is one to be found with the game is that it is quite short - about ten hours, which is at least slightly longer than the first Uncharted (Drake's Fortune) which was about eight hours. It's not surprising that these games are quite short, however, since everything in the game is highly polished - the graphics are truly amazing, even more pristine, crisp, and detailed than the first game. The story, and especially the characterization are excellent for an adventure title, bearing in mind of course that it isn't an RPG. Drake is back along with old faces and new characters, so if you liked the characters of the first, you will really like the second which further expands them, but more so takes them on another, slightly more epic ride than the first. The action is also a bit more worked out and polished than the first game; even if you don't notice the improved gameplay at first, you will tell the difference as you play the game - the controls are more smooth and less clunky. So all things considered, an excellent game.
