One of the first reviews of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will be issued in the november edition of Playstation Magazine. What catches my eye is the " forget game of the year, this is one of the best games of all time" line in the center of the cover. You might think its biased coming from a PS magazine but they where not too kind to the infamous and killzone reviews in the past.  I knew this game was going to be great, but how great is what we will know october 13. fingers crossed.

I think that it will be amazing, but "one of the greatest of all time", that remains to be seen. 
 
I'm waiting for independent reviews.

The PS3's got a 'fresh new look' and 'killer price'!? I may have to pick one up.

It's PLAYSTATION magainze, I wouldn't honestly expect them to say Sony's biggest exclusive for this holiday season sucks.
 
Besides, I played the beta, it was good, not great and definitely not the "best of all time".

Ha-ha, gotta admit that type of statement only invites trouble, but this has been my number one game for 2009 for most of the year.  I'll certainly buy it, but I wish gaming magazines would use some restraint when making such claims. Truly great games need longevity to really be worthy of such accolades.  Maybe Uncharted 2 will get that, but I don't believe it can be called one of the best games of all time until it's been around for a while.

I'd take what they said with a grain of salt. However, I'm almost certain this will be one of the best games to come out this holiday.

The topic says "best game of all time" whereas there is no such quote, it say one of the best. There is a huge difference between the best and one of the best games of all time.

I dont think so...I think that a bold statement like that, trying to sell magazines.  Get people to read the review.  But from what I played of the multiplayer beta, I don't think so.  No way no how.  The killzone 2 multiplayer was more enjoyable.  Although I did like the graphics.  The number one games I am still looking at are Modern Warfare 2 and Borderlands.  I dont see how uncharted 2, though a good game, can ever really make any best games of all times lists.

It can make the best game of all times list by having a kick ass story mode which is what the core of the game will be.

It's an official magazine, therefore BS by default.

Who the hell goes to an official magazine for a review?
It's great for previews and news that you wouldn't be privy anywhere else that early, but to suggest that a magazine who a part of the crust on Sony's dick will do anything else than give it a rimjob on text is ludicrous.

Pretty expected, when you take a look at the Single Player with all its set pieces, cinematically driven story and lush visuals, I think all of that contributes to an experience like never before.

As a guy who didn't play Uncharted 1, I was actually judging Uncharted 2 from the videos we saw so far, the game must have went under a ton of improvements and whether they are visual related or gameplay related, I truly believe that this game will deliver a great experience for Action/Adventure lovers like you and me.

It looks like a really good game, AAA title to be sure, but---really? Best Game of ALL TIME? Thats a bit much, no matter what you spin it as its still a third person shooter and there are lots of those and a good chunk of those are fantastic games, for them to put that on the cover it better cause Jack Frost to leap outta my TV and scream " WHAT UP HO ! "

I'm sure these guys don't mind having their integrity questioned. I sure as heck never trusted Microsoft game reviews from Games for Windows: The Official Magazine cause we know those guys always got paid off. At least that nice John Davison is out from Sony's clutches and can reveal all the nasty things they made him do. And don't bother asking for evidence, since it's obvious just by looking at it.

An exclusive review, a month before release, on a PlayStation magazine. Yeah, call me skeptical. I'm sure the game will be great though.

I believe this is the second review of the game, the first was from some French PlayStation magazine which awarded it a 21/20. Yes, 21...

I honestly didn't think Uncharted needed any improvements.  It was amazing the way it was.

i bought a ps3 magazine once back in the day when it had no good games whatsoever (except maybe resistance and uncharted 1) and it was extremely optimistic and saying that the sales are off the charts. thus, i never trust a specific platform magazine as it always turns out to be bias. i think itll be a decent game, but its gonna be like the 360 magazine reviewing ODST

I played a bit of the demo at PAX, and while it certainly seemed fun, the building climbing bits were so slow and boring. It would have a lot of ground to make up in my mind. Even if I had a PS3, I don't think i'd be looking forward to this at all. (Instead my money would be going towards Heavy Rain and White Knight Chronicles)

Unless they are holding back a lot of radical gameplay features (they aren't), I can't see how it can hope to justify a statement like that.  It looks extremely similar to Uncharted, which was a great game, but hardly deserving of praise like that - what's gonna be so different about Uncharted 2?

I was expecting great, so If it can deliver "one of the best games of all time" quality, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Even just "one of the best games of all time" is too much bullshit to hear from an official magazine until more is released. Not paying one bit of attention to it.

I've been saving myself from too much footage, but brief glimpses of some of the set pieces look incredible, and i imagine there'll be many more.

The core gameplay has been tightened, but it'll be the actual set-pieces and cinematic moments which make the game what it is. Like what made COD4's single-player.
 
I'm waiting to see more reviews though.

that's like saying just because Nintendo Power didn't give every one of their games a 7 or higher means they weren't biased. They are both certainly biased, no question about it. The question is HOW biased.

Saying 'one of the best games of all time' is far more OK than giving a game a score of 21/20.
 
People shouldn't be judging if Uncharted 2 is or isn't one of the best games of all time until they've played it.  However, a 21/20 is unwarranted no matter what, it's just silly.

I'll know whether this game is one of the best games of all time if it manages to make me like it. I was never a fan of the first Uncharted.

It's not impossible for it to be 'one' of the best games of all time, it sounds like a huge statement but think about it... with todays technology, and huge budgets for developing games, it's not implausible that a new game will raise the bar somewhere along the lines, or raise all the bars very high like Uncharted 2 has done according to that review.
