Video Game Spotlight: Uncharted 2

After recently finishing Uncharted, I started playing Uncharted 2. While the first game took place in one setting (on an island), Uncharted 2 has multiple settings which is a nice touch but some of the environments were very cliche.

There was one puzzle in Uncharted 2 that was very similar to The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker (the mirror puzzle) – so I can’t quite say the game is highly original, but the storyline is decent and the graphics are phenomenal. Most people say this game has a longer campaign then the first game, but it actually took me longer to finish the first game than this game. I finished the campaign in 10 hours. The multiplayer feature is a nice component and has so much to offer which definitely extends the replay value, not to mention the many downloadable content add-ons.

The Uncharted series is one of the best reasons to get a PS3 — but hopefully for the sequel there will be more original gameplay elements. It seems that climbing up ladders and reaching placeholders in walls and such were very common and I hope to see new things like controlling a helicopter, a ship, or maybe a jetpack perhaps.
