Uncharted 2 was one of 2009ís top games
(actually topping many charts as the game of the year) and it wasnít
hard to see why. Great acting, cinematics, gameplay and graphics all
came together in one polished package from the studio that brought us
our first taste of Crash Bandicoot in the 90ís.
This time around, Drake and his crew are headed to the desert Ė in part,
according to creative director Amy Henning because ďthatís going to be
The term ďdeceptionĒ in the title relates to Nathan Drake, the
protagonist himself and perhaps has something to do with his identity.
Apparently more storyline around his family will be revealed, which of
course could have something to do with a similar tie-in for the
big-screen adaption of Uncharted (which isnít expected to be
out until sometime in 2012).
At first I thought it was a bit of a short time frame to pump out
another one of these titles, but looking back it seems like the first
one was 2007 and the second one 2009 so fall of 2011 is about right for
the development cycle that Naughty Dog has in place. Iím personally a
little relieved since my gaming schedule for this year already seems
pretty full but Iím excited to see the next
game come out.
For me, Iím all about the single player campaign and the improvements
here are going to include things like enhanced backwards climbing and
the ability to fight more than one enemy at the same time. Iím not quite
sure what that means, since I remember in the last one it seemed like
bad guys were always all over the place but I guess weíll find out soon
The multiplayer is an area that is supposed to receive some larger
enhancements than anything, so if that is your cup of tea then you will
be all excited about this. The story is supposed to include more
information about the relationship Drake has with ďSullyĒ.
Naughty Dog is one of the best developers in the world and we look
forward to what we will get next year! Itís beginning to seem like itís
far away now.
