Preview - Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Hands On - Uncharted 2 multiplayer
Posted on June 15, 2009 by Nick, Nikhil
 

Nick's take:

Multiplayer is quickly becoming a staple of the gaming industry, to the point where even games that would ordinarily be single player have begun including your standard fare multiplayer romps. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the latest game to follow this trend, along side games like Metal Gear Solid 4 and Bioshock 2. Whether you're a diehard naysayer or an evangelical promoter of the inclusion of multiplayer to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, it's here and it's here to stay. So does the train deliver home or do its biscuit wheels derail into a soupy, gravy mess? If the recent beta is in any way indicative of the final product, fans should be in for a treat.

The multiplayer beta features two different modes of play - a competitive deathmatch and plunder mode, and a co-operative mode that sees up to 3 players revisiting slightly retooled scenarios from the single player campaign. The competitive mode comes with two separate levels, an urban plaza and an impoverished village. Deathmatch is your standard fare 5 versus 5. The plunder mode is essentially a rendition of capture the flag, with a golden statue as the prize in lieu of a flag.

Mechanically, the original Uncharted was very solid, so it's no big surprise that the core of the multiplayer mode performs admirably. Uncharted 2 features a familiar stop-and-pop combat system, with solid feeling weapons and ample amounts of cover, nooks and crannies to get the edge on your opponents. If Naughty Dog had simply slapped together a multiplayer mode that featured just that, the worst that could be said about it was that it was a tad uninspired. What sets Uncharted 2 apart from others, though, is the inclusion of the adrenaline pumping platforming that made the original Uncharted so memorable. Uncharted 2 will have players jumping great gaps and climbing to vertigo inducing heights, allowing them to get better vantage points on the enemy to spring that sneak attack or provide cover for a teammate. It's something that few other shooters have tried, and sets it apart from other similar titles, namely Gear of War 2. There are a few nuances to the competitive mode, which will hopefully be fixed. Some weapon balancing could benefit the game - grenades blow up entirely too quickly. Melee attacks could be toned down a bit, their range and power seems a bit overwhelming, and the stealth kill is a gamble at this point - it seems like half the time when I attack players from behind, I would do the standard melee swing instead of the instant kill neck snap. Also, climbing speed could also be increased, given the emphasis that's placed on platforming.

Likewise, the co-op is also mechanically solid. Levels from the single player campaign have been retooled, forcing players to work together in order to complete the levels. For example, in the Nepal War Zone featured in the beta, the campaign version has Nate jumping on a dresser to reach higher ground. In the co-op level, the dresser is gone, obligating another player to hoist him up. Unlike the competitive mode, however, the co-op mode is rather generic. In the Nepal War Zone level, there is very little adventuring or platforming. Rather, players are simply shuffled from one area to the next, forced to defeat any adversaries before moving onwards. It isn't bad, per say, but there isn't anything that makes it stand out from other online co-op games, like Resident Evil 5.

Naughty Dog looks like it's well on the way to creating a serviceable multiplayer to their blossoming franchise. At the worst, the multiplayer is simply lacking of any characteristics that define the franchise. The multiplayer is text book stuff, and will be adequate enough to please fans of the franchise. There is no doubt, however, that multiplayer, at least at this point, is definitely the desert. The single player campaign will remain the meat and potatoes of this package, and as far as I'm concerned, thats exactly how it should be.

My friend was lucky enough to receive one of these keys from Sony. We tried it out but i was, unfortunately, disappointed. I didn't get that much time to work out the kinks in my playing but I found that the game style weighed heavily certain types of action. What I mean is that your usual first/third person shooter tactics might not work in Uncharted. So for me this game will take some getting used to. The concept was great, and I'm happy that Naughty Dog decided to incorporate multiplayer gameplay, but it will need some work. Hey, this is only the BETA right? Happy Fraggin'

I'd love to take one of those codes off of your hands guys. :P What can I say..Uncharted : Drake's Fortune was one of the main reasons why I feel in love with my PS3. The graphics were gorgeous, the gameplay was awesome and the characters were easy to relate to. This one is shaping up to be even better than the first if the footage is anything to go by. I'd love to give it a go, but if not, I know it will be great anyway. Thanks. :D

I hope you still have some codes. :) Uncharted 2 looks is shaping up to be my GOTY, but I'm worried about the MP feeling 'tacked on'. I'd like to try it out to help convince me that it isn't, and that it's great in its' own right. I'd also like the Beta to show that girls can kick*****at games too! hehe Thnx. Em. x

I'm quite excited that Naughty Dog has decided to include multiplayer in Uncharted 2. I really enjoyed Uncharted Drakes Fortune but felt it lacked replay value. The trophy's and extras were tempting but the game began to get tiresome sometime during my 4th play through. The now addition of multplayer both competitive and cooperative looks and from what i hear is very enjoyable. I would be very happy if i received a code and could enjoy the beta. Thank you in advance!

I really enjoyed the game mechanics of the first and if they are present in the multiplayer i expect them to be a fantastic new experience and to be 'forced' to work together make me think of another great team game, hint: zombies and groups of four. i have seen the eye candy and i cant wait to play on the snowy mountain. also cant wait to play if i get the code, been trying a while

Anyone watch the demo during the Sony keynote at E3 and go...oh man, that is so cool? Just watching Uncharted 2 in motion is pretty amazing - I haven't been as fired up watching a demo for a while. I like the animation and the interaction with the environment in particular, and I can't fault them for going the linear story-telling route again - some people were describing that as a negative. I am also very interested in the vertical plus horizontal gameplay, especially within co-op or multi-player - it will be interesting to see how that works. Seemed like chaos in Resistance 2 multiplayer - but that was a larger number of players.

great article! this first uncharted was amazing, it really shocked me how good it was actualy stunning graphics and great gameplay, from what you guys have said this ones going to be just as good if not better, i hope the one player mode is abit longer though, but to the multiplayer, it sounds and looks like a real treat, and im sure they'll deliver on it! like cod but jumping from ledges and climbing signs :P it all sounds good..and maybe they'll offer more maps for download ?.. a beta code would be awesome to :P

From what I've seen, the multiplayer surprised me greatly. I thought at first that it was going to be an afterthought. But I guess Naughty Dog proved me wrong and I'm glad they did. Now I'd like to try it myself and see if the gameplay stack up to the videos I saw. :)

Loved the first uncharted game. Fantastic graphics, great voice acting and a good story made it one of the definitive titles to have on the ps3. I've been trying to get my hands on a beta code for this beta for ages, even more than the killzone 2 beta! Would love it if you guys gave me a code! Cheers!

So glad they went with the multiplayer option in Uncharted 2. From what I heard there is a co-op mode as well? Anyway, developers need to include co-op in every game. They need to understand that playing a game with friends is more fun then playing by urself. Case in point...Resident Evil 5. That co-op game play was great!

I really enjoyed the game mechanics of the first and if they are present in the multiplayer i expect them to be a fantastic new experience and to be 'forced' to work together make me think of another great team game, hint: zombies and groups of four. i have seen the eye candy and i cant wait to play on the snowy mountain. also cant wait to play if i get the code, been trying a while

Anyone watch the demo during the Sony keynote at E3 and go...oh man, that is so cool? Just watching Uncharted 2 in motion is pretty amazing - I haven't been as fired up watching a demo for a while. I like the animation and the interaction with the environment in particular, and I can't fault them for going the linear story-telling route again - some people were describing that as a negative. I am also very interested in the vertical plus horizontal gameplay, especially within co-op or multi-player - it will be interesting to see how that works. Seemed like chaos in Resistance 2 multiplayer - but that was a larger number of players.

Just returned inFAMOUS to Blockbuster was really a good game I beat it on hard on infamous & hero modes; was pretty insane like a well built Assasins Creed with Force Unleashed powers.. If you could get me a code I'd really appreciate it. Had every system since PS1 :)

Ever since finishing the first game, I've been eagerly waiting to get my hands on the second game. Hopefully you could give the code as a fix before the full game comes out. Thanks

Forgot to mention, I played the beta at my friends place and when I got some hands on, I was very impressed. Still would like to get into the beta.

great article! this first uncharted was amazing, it really shocked me how good it was actualy stunning graphics and great gameplay, from what you guys have said this ones going to be just as good if not better, i hope the one player mode is abit longer though, but to the multiplayer, it sounds and looks like a real treat, and im sure they'll deliver on it! like cod but jumping from ledges and climbing signs :P it all sounds good..and maybe they'll offer more maps for download ?.. a beta code would be awesome to :P

I've been waiting for this game for quite a while now! The way the gameplay really makes me feel like i'm watching a movie and in the game just from the E3 trailer! I would really like to be part of the multiplayer beta experience.

From what I've seen, the multiplayer surprised me greatly. I thought at first that it was going to be an afterthought. But I guess Naughty Dog proved me wrong and I'm glad they did. Now I'd like to try it myself and see if the gameplay stack up to the videos I saw. :)

Loved the first uncharted game. Fantastic graphics, great voice acting and a good story made it one of the definitive titles to have on the ps3. I've been trying to get my hands on a beta code for this beta for ages, even more than the killzone 2 beta! Would love it if you guys gave me a code! Cheers!

So glad they went with the multiplayer option in Uncharted 2. From what I heard there is a co-op mode as well? Anyway, developers need to include co-op in every game. They need to understand that playing a game with friends is more fun then playing by urself. Case in point...Resident Evil 5. That co-op game play was great!

Man, it would be really cool if I could get a code for this. I've played the first one and really want to play this one. I've heard the multiplayer is really good. This game will be epic with it's storyline and multiplayer. I hope I can get one of those codes because this game is sick..!

Loved the First Uncharted game but I thought that he ran a little funny for me. Hopefully they fixed it on this game. I would love to beta test to see if the new game will be worth my $60. If I can get a code it would be much appreciated. Thanks!!!
