Seconded, trailer was nice but I would like to see Moar! regardless though this will probably be a decent sequel hopefully.

I played the first three levels of the first one, it's a damn good game, kind of Indiana Jones-like in its story.

Finally! Loved the original. The idea of stealth doesn't do it for me but I'll be more than happy to pick it up :D

fantastic news, not all that keen on the inclusion of stealth play though. It's like we have gone back in time when every game under the sun tried to include stealth play...

 

Delighted this is coming back though, have to go back and play the original again at some point., one of my favourite PS3 games.

Not so fussed about the stealth aspect, dont want it to get into MGS territory but i will be pre-ordering this for sure.

 

Uncharted is still my favorite game this year (got it in January ^^).

I wonder if they'll be chasing classic Splinter Cell for the stealth parts. I'm fucking having this!

I like stealth if I have the option to blast people away.

 

Hope my PS3 doesn't break before this is out. [/bitterness]

I would take the subtitle 'Among Thieves' with a pinch of salt. GameInformer has made up names before, calling Resistance 2 'United we Fall'

 

Burks.

Here's some details from eurogamer.

 

Naughty Dog has said Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will come close to using all of the PS3's power, after the first game used just "30 to 40 per cent".

 

That's according to the Game Informer reveal (read by a poster on the Gametrailers forum), which provides the first details and images of the sequel.

 

We're told to expect a brand new female lead in the shape of Chloe Frazer, who'll be played by Claudia Black from Stargate SG-1 and Farscape. She may use a rocket launcher, as suggested by cut-scene footage.

 

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, revolves around Nathan Drake finding the lost ships of Marco Polo. Action adventure will still very much be the focus, and Naughty Dog has made significant improvements to combat.

 

Apparently melee will be more "dynamic", and Drake will be able to shoot while running, climbing and hanging, as well as simultaneously move and aim from behind cover.

 

Firefly composer Greg Edmonson will return to score the game, and Nolan North will once again provide the voice and movements for hero Nathan Drake.

 

Naughty Dog apparently refused to comment on whether original heroine Elena or grizzled friend Sully will make comebacks.

 

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will be unveiled properly on Sunday at the 2008 Video Game Awards. Expect more information to tumble out then.

 

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was released at the end of 2007 and is one of the best games on PlayStation 3. It can be picked up as part of the PS3's budget Platinum range for around GBP 20.

 

We heavily recommend the game, as our Uncharted: Drake's Fortune review points out.

Maybe it's set BEFORE the original? Just a thought...

 

The characters (Sully specifically) could do with being explained more. Drake also looked a little younger to me in the pictures too. Or maybe that was the snow lol.

 

Either way, I loved the "will they, won't they" Elena and Drake moments in the original.

Updating the combat is ace too. Although it wasn't awful in the original it deffo could have been better. And, with the extra power of the PS3 being used I dread to think how awesome it could all look. (Uncharted still looks amazing to me!)

 

Can't wait either way.
