Looks nice, but they seriously need to give Drake a jacket. Did the first one have motion blur?

New Uncharted 2 Details
Posted Image maddoggnick96 on Gamefaqs.com has posted some info from the new GI magazine:

- The biggest thing in the article IMO is that there's a new girl named Chloe Frazer. GI asked about Elena and Sully's return but they had no comment.
- The story is about looking for the ships that Marco Polo "lost" while returning home to Italy.
- Melee combat is more dynamic now.
- They mentioned they were using only 30% of the PS3's power with Drake's Fortune and are planning to use nearly 100% with Among Thieves.
- A demo was shown to GI with Drake going through a city (I believe in Nepal), and he's stealthily taking out guards and escaping the city.
- Nolan North returns to be Drake and Chloe Frazer is played by Claudia Black (Stargate SG-1, Fargate).
- The Sixaxis mechanics were ditched for such things as throwing grenades.
- One of the weapons revealed is a rocket launcher that Chloe uses (might only be for the cinematic).
- There are no load screens.
- The score is being composed by Greg Edmonson (same guy from the first one).
- Weapons can be used in any stance (running, behind cover, hanging, climbing a wall, etc.).
- You can now move while aiming behind cover.

"In Uncharted 2, every character fully interacts with the dynamic geometry moving around them, and environments in the background are real parts of the game world"

"If Drake's on top of a train, he's going to be shaking with the train as it moves around"
"As he gets inside, his moveset is going to change, and he's going to be a lot more secure because the wind's not blowing."

- The graphics look better than Uncharted 1.
- Button sequence cinematics such as the final boss have changed so now Drake is now fully controllable in these parts...I think (This one's also hard to describe).
- Climbing seems improved upon. You can climb lamp posts now among other new things.
- If there is an enemy patrolling a rooftop you're climbing a wall to, you can pull him off the roof while hanging on the wall.

I remember some other developer making a big deal about being able to do that second thing in their game, but I can't recall what it is.

This might be the first issue of Game Informer that I've bought since high school...and that was a damn long time ago. ;)

Could you do that in Splinter Cell?

Damn, I actually liked the Sixaxis grenade throwing.

Sixaxis grenade throwing was okay. I wish they'd keep it in there as an option. But hopefully they include more ice glaciers to cross in this game than they had logs to cross in the first game.

This game is going to be incredible.

I hope it's longer than the first one though.

Just saw the direct feed shots. The shot down the street with the hanging flags is really, really pretty. Reminds me a bit of Resident Evil 5's target video. Must be the color.

I finished Uncharted on crushing a few days ago and now I'm a bit bummed that this won't be out for a while.

What happened to his necklace? Ooh, plot point.

Sweet. I like how they manage to introduce the vivid color, even in the battle-torn town scenes. The sneak parts are looking a little Metal Gear-y. I wonder if the game will allow for avoiding battles to get to objectives, or if the sneak stuff is just a new gameplay mechanic. I guess I'm worried that it will be just forced upon the player instead of making it a cool new option.

Ruh roh, hype meter rising...desire for this game increasing...

And Chloe Fraser... :drool: :drool: :drool:

Maybe I missed it, but has their been any info on a release date? I was thinking they'd get this out for Holiday '09.

I haven't heard anything. I'd personally like it if they avoided a holiday release.
