I guess Uncharted 2 is coming out tomorrow. I never played the first one, so I downloaded the demo and played it. I quit after about fifteen minutes. The combat was boring and the cover system didn't do anything to enhance it, except as an excuse to unload dozens of enemies at the player. The weapons were weak. The parts that are so-often compared to Tomb Raider amount to running down an obviously linear path, sometimes encountering puzzles that were too easy unto themselves. There were cheesy little elements added, like parkor (parkour?) that made me yawn and say "who cares?" Drake was somewhat cool, though. Though from what I hear the story stays pretty good for the first half then pulls an Indigo Prophecy towards the end. Meh.
Maybe I'm just being too critical, but I just didn't have fun with the demo. That's alright, $25 saved
