And that's a good thing. The PlayStation Blog is already pointing everyone in the direction of early reviews for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves , and you can see why.
After wowing everyone at E3 and taking home 20 different awards – including 6 "Best in Show" honors – everyone has been waiting for October 13, the day when the next truly legitimate Game of the Year contender hits the market. And the critics are already responding: there was that leaked review from French publication PSM3 that had Naughty Dog's sequel busting through the ceiling; it scored an impossible 21/20. Then, the Official PlayStation Magazine scored it a perfect 5 out of 5, followed by another perfect score – 10 out of 10 – from UK publication GamesRadar. IGN just popped up a score of 9.5 and we're all willing to bet that you're anxiously awaiting our review. Well, we don't rush into the biggest titles of the year. We always want to give you the most in-depth and accurate analysis possible and besides, what difference does it make…? You can't buy the game for several more weeks anyway, so when it comes time to finally make a purchase decision (as if it's any decision at all, really), we'll be sure to tell you what we think. We have to go into every review with a blank slate brain…but damn, it's hard to do sometimes.
Perhaps it shouldn't surprise us that Uncharted 2 leads our weekly poll by a landslide. You guys saw this coming, didn't ya? Yeah, we got some smart readers out there. 😉
