As if you needed any reminding, the PlayStation 3 exclusive Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is receiving some lofty review scores from critics worldwide, and as the analysis continues to be glowing, we're starting to wonder: will it become the highest rated game of the generation?
It's well on its way. As of right now, it's averaging 96.43% according to GameRankings , and that is currently counting 7 reviews. To add to those, most recently we've seen a 5/5 from G4TV, a 9.6 from Vandal Online, a 93 from Videogamezone, and a 95 from JeuxVideo. In comparison to the best of the best this generation, Grand Theft Auto IV for the PS3 owns the top spot (and is actually the second-highest rated game of all time behind The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time ) with an average review score of 97.31% and Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii is at 97.28%. But beyond that, nothing can quite reach Uncharted 2 right now, including Bioshock (94.99%), LittleBigPlanet (94.50%), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (94.17%), Gears of War (93.88%), and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (93.14%). Obviously, we've got a long ways to go – our review is still to come, for instance – but Naughty Dog's sequel is definitely off to a fast start. If this isn't enough to convince you to be a PS3 owner at this point in time…well, nothing will.
Where will Uncharted 2 end up on the overall rankings? We're not entirely sure, but we feel confident in saying it's easily one of the best video game productions in history.
