Terminal Gamer’s 2009 Awards – Game of the Year

Uncharted 2

Uncharted 2, a Playstation 3 exclusive, followed Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter, as he tried to track down the Cintamani Stone, rumored to have been with Marco Polo’s fleet when it nearly entirely disappeared returning from Mongolia. The story, filled with compelling moments and stunning set pieces, was perfect in almost every way.

Uncharted 2 provided a unique combination of action and suspense, shooting and adventure, engaging and realistic characters and stunning scenery. Uncharted 2 offers something for everyone. We gave it a perfect score, and it deserved it. Uncharted 2 isn’t just a great game, it’s one of the greatest games of the decade, and is a standard-bearer for the PS3. It is reason alone to buy a Playstation 3, and everyone should play it. Buy it, play it, and love it. Uncharted 2 is, without a doubt, our Game of the Year.

Uncharted 2 blew us away. It was the best game of the year, and it's one of the best games of all time.
