Uncharted 2 likely to beat LBP to highest PS3 MC score ever

Wednesday, 30th September 2009 10:38 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Following last night’s round of general reviews, it now seems likely Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 2 is set to become the highest rated PS3 exclusive of all time.

The game currently has a Metacritic rating of 97 percent, ahead of the previous holder LittleBigPlanet at 95 percent.

Due out on October 16 in the UK, the title has now taken full scores from Eurogamer, CVG, Gamesradar, OPM and many others.

Get a full review round-up here. Thanks, Psychotext.

    I think it is a little Early to post this.
    Because Edge and Gamespot didn`t Post there Reviews
    which May Effect the the Total reviews in Metacritic.

    I can’t see sub 9 from either of them… but what do I know?

    Metacritic scores for the big games generally decline slightly over time, I think…

    For sure. This’ll likely end up with something like 80 reviews, it’s obviously only got around 20 so far.

    If Edge give this less than 9, i’m going to shit in a jiffy bag and post it to them, especially after they gave ODST 9.

    Having read the “LOL!” post in the forum, I suspect you wouldn’t be the only one.

    Not to beat a dead horse but damn why do we get so much Uncharted2 and GT5 coverage? I know someone will say because “we” want it, or call me a troll, but to borrow a Brit phrase, Bloody Hell. If these games were on the xb360 the splash they would be making would be a lot smaller.
    As for uncharted, I think it is a glorified Lost Planet, and as for GT, it looks nice(not amazing, but nice) however you and I know that the real meat and potatoes for a modern day racer is going to be its ONLINE gameplay. I hope I am wrong but I can’t see GT5s online being very good(prolly gonna be subpar at best).
    So in the end, I guess i just don’t get it. Either the PS3 is REALLY big across the pond, or there is something in the tea your drinking.

    What gets attention here, is what’s getting attention. There’s no conspiracy really.

    The GeOW2 coverage was indeed worst, Bleszinski just had to inhale air to get an article back then.
    Natal news isnt any better either.

    Gek, that is telling about you.

    This site is based on integrity and credibility. If someone is sucked in by hype it’s a shame, but then. you have to assume that catering for your audience comes into it.

    I don’t understand – GTA4 currently holds the top average of 98 on metacritic, not Little Big Planet.

    Nevermind, just re-read the article and saw “PS3 exclusive”

    It was more like the Bleszinski blitzkrieg
    but on a serious note, as far as the accusation of VG being Sony sympathetic or some sort of favoritism…. I wouldn’t go there because out of all the gaming sites I frequent (that cover gaming in general and not a specific platform) this is the most non-biased sight I have been on. They mostly report the news without adding their own twist. They play the middle if you will.. unlike kotaku/joystiq/etc….
