    So I have been playing the Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta for a couple of days now, and I must say...This game is AWESOME!!!  While I have yet to play through the Uncharted 1 story (I plan on starting that tomorrow) I have no doubt that Uncharted 2 is going to rock.  I am ranked up to level 9 so far. 
     
    The thing that I find funny is that whenever I play the heros side people know that I am a girl (I play as Elena.  Go figure), but when I am a villian, I have to play as a big burly russian dude.  Someone killed me once when I was a villian and was all "Got you dude...Wait...That was a GIRL????"  I found it to be hysterical to be honest.  Everyone seems to have this preconceived notion that everyone who plays video games are inherently male.  I know that the males make up most of the gaming demographic, but as someone who is fairly new to the gaming world (I am not a true gamer by any sense of the word) it can be kind of odd and unsettling at times.   
     
    I digress...Uncharted 2 is a game that should be running in every PS3 when it comes out.  Hopefully Ill see you all on the battlefield.

    I felt the same so I tried the demo but hated the whole feel of the combat and even the movement so I didnt buy it. Wierdly the MP demo hooked me though, Its awesome! Everything about it from the movement to the feel of the guns "works" for me and I cant tell why.

    I signed into the Uncharted 2 beta over the weekend, played three separate games as a Level One character because I just got it and got kicked from each one for no apparent reason. Deciding I had other, better things to play, I said "fuck this" and played Battlefield: 1943.

    I'm trying my hardest to keep playing the the awesome beta to a minimum, I don't want to  have to re-rank up again and burn out on the game before it comes out. 
    I'm still finding it very hard to get  into co-op games despite easily finding deathmatch stuff. I dont know if thats the time of day that i'm signing in or what... but I can't quite seem to link both adversarial and uncharted together... 
     
    The story and writing in the single player is really what Uncharted is all about... have fun with it.

    Yeah I've really been enjoying the BETA for 2. Uncharted is one of my favourite games of this generation, you should really enjoy the story of Drakes Fortune.

    @TheMustacheHero: Sure there were problems with the bullet bag enemies and some other stuff, but the general concept, setting, characters and story were so good, minor issues are easy to overlook.

    Is there character customization in this game? What's the point of leveling up in multiplayer? Do you unlock stuff?

    @CowMuffins:
    There is character customization in that you get to pick who you play as on either the hero or villian side and you get to choose a taunt to do and your characters perks.  Leveling up give you money that you use to buy said perks and unlock them as well.

    But you can't customize your character Metal Gear Online style? Can you buy new characters, and how many are there?

    You can buy new characters and at present (remember it is still just the beta of the game) there are ten characters to play as on each side.  I do not know how the character customization in MGO is because I have not played it and cannot comment on it.

    You should play it. Basically, you can make a character and buy different gear sets, like new chest armor, hats, accessories and the such.

    So long as I hear about Uncharted 2 being good, I won't have to play it until it comes out. Because it looks badass, and I don't want to dilute that bad-assedness by being in the beta for it. I accidentally ruined my passion for Supreme Commander by doing exactly that. 
     
    @CowMuffins: Do people still play MGO? I remember servers were packed when the game first came out, but I also remember the terrible, terrible signup process.

    Yes people still play it. The sign up process isn't bad, it saves all your info, so really you only have to log in once. They patched all the bullet lag too.

    Yeah you earn money and there's a ton of stuff to unlock for doing so.
     
    It's a really good beta. They still have issues to iron out - people quitting (!) - but it's a very impressive multiplayer component to what we all assumed would be a bit of a "tack on". It's certainly not short on content.
