    This game has a really great multiplayer. It’s fast, it’s different from any other, it’s not just shooting, the content is vast with lots of play modi, it had “levelation” before Battlefield and it looks good. It is the best third person MP out to date and improved alot from what Uncharted 2 did.

    Now is the best time for me to get back to it, I think.

    @3 pay2win? you can only be kidding. There’s no competitive advantage that can be bought as far as I remember. Just extra maps and costumes, I don’t see how that’s pay2win.

    @3: As #3 said, I don’t see any pay2win in it. Most payed content is just cosmetic. There are weapons, you can buy, yes. But those are balanced and make as good as no difference anyway.
    But maybe you are refering to the free version of Uncharted 3 MP, where you need to pay to get a higher level cap. That is just an offer by naughty dog, to play the game for free. But normally, you get the whole multiplayer if you buy the game.
