After tackling Metroid in Season 1 and then Halo in Season 2, game informant‘s Video Gameography Podcast takes a look at one of Sony’s greatest assets: Uncharted. Last week we started Drake’s Fortune and now we’re moving on to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, the magnificent sequel that catapulted the franchise into the stratosphere.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves launched on October 13, 2009, almost two years after Drake’s Fortune. Now that it had a solid foundation to work from, Naughty Dog set about creating the video game equivalent of a summer blockbuster movie. This included eschewing cutscene setpieces in favor of technically impressive gameplay moments that still offered control over the action, like the game’s famous turn sequence. The writing and characters shone even brighter, from Nate himself to newcomer Chloe Frazer to favorite girl next door Elena Fischer. Uncharted 2 also introduced a surprisingly solid multiplayer mode, rounding out an outstanding package that has won numerous Game of the Year awards (ours included).
Join host Ben Reeves (@BenjaminReeves), Marcus Stewart (@Marcus Stewart7), and IGN Editor-in-Chief Jonathon Dornbush (@jmdornbusch) as we unpack the developmental history and influence of Nathan Drake’s magnum opus.
