Uncharted 2 Is A Thrill-a-Minute Cliffhanger, Guaranteed

By Paul Hunter

If the 97% Metacritic average and 14 perfect review scores aren't enough to convince you that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will be in serious contention for Game of the Year, then perhaps GameStop's Gaming Guarantee will convince you to pick up the game on October 13.

This promotion is one in a long line-up of guaranteed games from GameStop, including Halo 3: ODST, Resident Evil 5, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

It's pretty simple, if you pre-order Uncharted 2 from a GameStop or EB Games location and don't end up liking the game, they are willing to give you full pre-tax in-store trade credit within one week of purchase.

Considering that Uncharted 2 has an addictive new competitive multiplayer mode to play after you complete the 25 chapter campaign, there's easily more than a week's worth of content in the game. I've been in the multiplayer closed and open betas and can't stop playing. A week guarantee seems about three months too short for me.
