This year Sony’s first party studio Naughty Dog will be releasing a sequel to their hit 2007 game Uncharted: Drakes fortune. And the reception that it’s currently getting from the gaming media has been overwhelmingly positive. According to game ranking website Metacritic Uncharted 2 has managed to gain a critical game rating average of 98% within the first 18 reviews.
Now while this is subject to change at any given moment, it is interesting to note that the original Uncharted which has an average of 88% garnered an average of 94% within it’s first 17 reviews. But remember as more reviews pour in we will be able to see where the title ends up and it is entirely possible that it will remain at 98% even then.
As of right now Uncharted is the highest rated exclusive for any 7th Gen console. With Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) sitting at an average of 97%, Zelda Twilight Princess (Wii) and LittleBigPlanet(PS3) at 95, And Gears of War, Halo 3(Xbox 360) and Metal Gear Solid 4(PS3) at 95% are the closest exclusives to be anywhere near Uncharted 2’s 98% average.
No matter where it finally ends up,it is interesting to say that PS3 owners are in for a hell of a ride when Uncharted 2 launches this October exclusively for the platform.
