Uncharted 2: Among Thieves | Publisher: SCEA | Developer: Naughty Dog

Extreme Gamer's 'Game of the Year for 2009' is Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the ultimate gaming thrill ride that will have you gripping the controller until the credits role, and after the credits role you have all the time in the world to jump into its solid multiplayer features/ co-op included. Naughty Dog has sure come along way from Crash Bandicoot.

For those keeping score, Uncharted 2 has already racked up FIVE GOTY awards this year in the following categories; Best Action, Best Graphics, Best Sound, Best Character, and Playstation 3 GOTY. It should be translucent as air-- Uncharted 2 is a great game, and totally deserving of our Game of the Year Award. To sum up it, here is a quote from our October 14th review.

"Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is one of the most cohesive, and memorable action adventure games ever made, and what Naughty Dog has accomplished won’t be duplicated anytime soon".

This statement couldn't be any more true, and it is hard to imagine Uncharted 2 being any better than it already is. Congratulations Drake, you have done it again.
