Okay sure, Giantbomb 5/5. They liked it too, I think.

Surprise of the century!

Frostbite 2 shines in multiplayer, single-player, and co-op. 9.5/10

Graphics

Amazingly beautiful -- just watch sand cascade from Drake's footsteps, water slosh across the screen, and the wrinkles crinkle on characters faces. Naughty Dog outdid itself. 10/10

@Pr1mus: I don't think that's what a 10 means though. There's no way anything can be perfect, so it's pointless having 10 mean perfection since it won't happen. Instead, it means it was outstanding in every aspect.

10 usually means it's as close to perfect as games get. Not actual perfection itself. Excellent, in other words.

I bought Uncharted 2 off Amazon about two weeks ago and still haven't touched it. I intend on getting Uncharted 3 on release date. I still have time, right?

I'm being told I have about a week. Yeah, that's sufficient time.

Uncharted 2 will still be fun even if you play 3 first even if its just for the story :D

@Karmum: DUDE Uncharted 2 is the greatest game of all time PERIOD You will have time bro!

#9 Posted by TheHT (10933 posts) -

@Karmum: definitely. i just beat it on crushing last weekend and it took about 6 or 7 hours. but that was the third time i'd played it and i skipped all the cutscenes. anyways, you'll definitely be able to finish it even if you play it casually over the week.

I think critiques throw 10s and 9s aroung too loosely.

@Karmum:  Play it, its a fantastic game and if reviews are to be believed so is the third installment

@Sackmanjones: @TheHT: @McShank: @bennym6:

Had more new messages in my inbox in the past two hours than being gone for months at a time. I am planning on playing it sometime before Uncharted 3, it was intended to be more of a joke. Just need to cram it in between the gym, school and work. That's difficult. I didn't think all of those Metacritic reviews were lying, and I enjoyed both the first and second demos on PSN anyway.

Way, this game is GOOD?

#14 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

I'm not convinced

Why is that review split into 2 pages? This isn't a magazine.

Well, this IS Uncharted, but this score from IGN is a little unexpected.

Only a 10? Puh-lease! I am boycotting this game.

It's from Greg Miller. Sony super fan and almighty ball sucker of Naughty Dog/Uncharted. Complete joke of a review.

Just because a game gets a "perfect" score, doesn't mean the game is perfect. You can get a "perfect" score on a scantron test, but I'm sure you went a little outside the lines bubbling in at least one of your answers.

Dude get on it! I bought a PS3 just for Uncharted. I wasn't disappointed. The first game is iffy, but you've gotta play Uncharted 2. That's a must.

Consider the source of the review from IGN anyway. He'd give the worst PS3 game a decent score.

Don't usually talk like this, but, Oh Fuck.

Doesn't deter me from very seriously wanting this game a week from now. Not even that ridiculousness. Well, it sure didn't hurt...

He gave Lair a 4.9 and accepted the shit storm of Sony fanboys who defended it during the PS3's early days of it literally having nothing to play. He's a big Sony fanboy, but I don't think he's an idiot.

IGN would like you to click on as many pages as possible.

That's because even HE can't deny Lair was a fucking turd. And yes he is an idiot. >_>
