3D Realms' George Broussard has pinned Naughty Dog's Uncharted series up with the very best after playing the heavily-hyped second game.
"Amazing single player experiences," he said, writing on the Shack forums.
"Nearly, if not, on par with Half-Life 1/2. I haven't felt this giddy over a game series since Half-Life.
"This is epic badassery right here. Believe the hype."
Uncharted 2 is on the verge of history, still being listed as the highest-rated PS3 exclusive of all time on Metacritic at 96 percent.
