"If you own a PS3, you've got to have this game. (Gametrailers.com)" 5 Stars. 10 out of 10. Game of the Year. Best of Show. The best action game to date. With a Metacritic score of 96 (out of 100), Uncharted 2 is universally acclaimed and with a million copies sold in the first week, it makes Uncharted 2 the must have game of the year. After many sleepless nights researching (read: playing) the sequel, LAist got to chat with Evan Wells, co-president of Naughty Dog.

Among Thieves is a sequel, but the games seem to be self-contained. Is there a point in trying the first one?
UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves was designed to stand on its own, and we don’t make any assumptions that somebody would have played UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune. However, the first game is a very fun and exciting game with an equally interesting story, so I highly recommend playing it, too (and it’s a great deal now at the Greatest Hits pricing). For gamers who have played the first game, they’ll definitely pick up on some inside jokes in the sequel and have a better understanding and appreciation of certain characters relationships.
