I haven't been able to d/l the DLC off my GOTY version (bought during the PSN outage)...but after reading some experiences here I guess I'm not missing much. I do love the co-op modes though (I loved Terrorist Hunt on R6: Vegas2), and deathmatch can be fun too.

I wonder if trophies will unlock once I d/l the DLC based on my current MP stats?

Thanks to the poster on the previous page. Beat the game last night, found that IGN hosted a video walkthrough and saw the path you mentioned that I missed originally.

No all those trophy stats (but not your overall stats) will be at zero so you have to earn them the hard way. This was the first time I had played the multi since I bought the discounted DLC and all of those counts were at zero.

Okay I have a dumb question: how do you use the stuff you bought like skins and what not on another play through? I want to play it on a harder difficulty but I'd like some added juice....

you cant use it on the harder difficulties before you beat those difficulties. crucshing isnt that hard though except for the cheap ass final boss.

In the main menu screen, switch the difficulty to hard, enable whatever cheats you want to use, then switch it back to crushing. Load up your game save, and you're good to go.

Finished the game up today. Didn't really care for the story at all. It felt too much like the first game. I did like that enemies didn't dance around like monkeys at all times, though.

Actually, you can use skins on difficulties you haven't beat yet. I played through most of hard my first time as Skelzor (I think that's his name, skeleton with the glowing heart). I planned on playing through Crushing as Doughtnut Drake, but seeing how I skipped most of the cutscenes in my Hard run and this will probably be the last time I play through this masterpiece, I'm gonna stay as normal Drake and enjoy the game as it was meant one final time.

Sigh... it's bittersweet. I almost never complete games, just goes to show how great UC2 is. I hope UC3 is as good. I'm not even wishing it to be better, as long as it's as good as UC2 it will be heaven.

Anyone playing the MP with any regularity? I just started playing it and I think it is the first U2 MP (that wasn't the coop) that I've played since back at Naughty Dog (and the public beta). At least the first U2 MP that I've kept playing since the "trophy" DLC.

Really enjoying it and it seems to be my latest obsession (which is weird, but on PS3 this, AC B and Brink are about it right now for MP). I've only come across one for sure cheater (was glitched under a waterfall or something on Temple and was pulling people down), so that hasn't been too bad. Seems there are still large amounts of people playing as well. I haven't tried plunder, so I can't speak about what that is like (seems a lot of bad experiences haha).

If anyone wants to set up a game night in anticipation/practice for U3 beta (and then in anticipation for U3), let me know.

I just recently got a PS3 and was curious if I should play uncharted1 before 2? I just picked up uncharted2 for $20 bucks but if I should play 1 first I need to go out and get it.

I personally would. It isn't a MUST, but imo it adds a lot to 2. And 2 is a lot better than 1... so it may be hard to go back to 1 if you start on 2. You can find 1 really cheap, so go for it.

Totally agree. 1 is great and 2 is an improvement. You'll get the returning characters and their relationships/motivations better if you play 1 first, but it's not required. Personally, UC1 and 2 are two of my favorite games and game stories ever and I'd say play them both in order.

im with them^ i recently got a PS3 myself (just 5 months ago) and i bought uncharted 1 then 2. i also recommend playing 1 first then jump into 2. 1 isnt a bad game but to really appreciate how awesome and insane 2 is its nice to have that reference.

you dont have to but you will appreciate the improvements from 1 to 2 better also the story is worth experiencing too and if you try to plat u1 you will get better with the handgun( a great weapon to use in u2 mp).

I have the vanilla U2... I can get $22.50 for it a GameStop and buy the GOTY U2 at Kmart for $20... is the extra content in the GOTY worth it?

I think the GOTY was supposed to come with all the multiplayer content (minus the sidekicks pack), the U2 dynamic theme for Ps3, and the "Eye of Indra" motion comics, some Avatars, and the Uncharted Pinbal game for PSP (for use with PSP only).

If i remember correctly, something that was supposed to be in the bundle wasn't packed in- and I think it was the dynamic theme.

The comics are actually pretty cool. The story for the comics was a flashback style plot thread that was pulled out of U2 due to limitations (time or budget).

yeah i hated that aspect of the u2 boss that room youre in causes more deaths than the actual boss attacks.


There's a cheap way to end this fight, even on Crushing, and it doesn't involve hanging on the edge of that square pillar. From the starting point, run down a bit and take cover behind the tree a bit past the resin blob so that you can barely aim your gun at the resin. When Lazarevic gets close, shoot the resin once, and run right up to him so that he is between you and the resin. When he is no longer stunned, he will grab you by the throat. When you're this close, he will never shoot you with his overpowered shotgun. Mash square as quickly as you can when prompted. If you do it right, he will not throw you long distance - he will just put you down on your feet. It will only take about one second for you to heal fully, then let him pick you up again. Shoot the resin when it comes back, making sure that you're far enough away from the blast to not take damage, but Laz does take damage. You should only have to shoot the resin about six times to end the fight - at least three times less than if you ran around the area.
