Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
In this third-person action adventure game, you are Nathan Drake - a treasure hunter following Marco Polo's journals to Nepal and the Himalayas in search of the fabled city of Shambhala, where the Cintamani Stone awaits. Reunited with Victor "Sully" Sullivan and Elena Fisher, you meet a new cast of characters, climb, swing, and fight soldiers of a Serbian war criminal named Zoran Lazarevic, towards your goal. But in this cat-and-mouse game of treasure hunting, who can you trust?
Like its predecessor, Uncharted 2 also won several Game of the Year awards, including one from the Spike Video Game Awards in 2009.
If you've already collected the Platinum on the first Uncharted game, then the requirements for Among Thieves shouldn't be anything new to you. With a little time and some skill, you find all the hidden treasures, perform so many kills with different weapons, complete the game on each of the modes, and you're done.
There are trophies for the online content, but are not required in obtaining the Platinum. The only two which are requires are: Thrillseeker and Buddy System, both of which only need you to "complete" an online game, which is easy enough.
If you've played the first Uncharted, then you already know what to do in getting that Platinum. Your options, as in the previous game, are: quick and stressful (starting off on Hard Mode) or easier but slower paced (staying with Easy Mode until most trophies are unlocked). The choice is up to you.
Nearly all the trophies are identical to those on the first Uncharted - clear certain stages, find all the treasures (use the walkthroughs in our Links page for this) kill 50 enemies with certain weapons (often gained during your second playthrough, using infinite ammo) and a few other stunts (Run-And-Gunner, Hangman, etc.) which the Trophy Guides in our Links page should help you with. As stated earlier, the DLC online trophies are NOT required for the platinum, except for Buddy System and Thrillseeker, which can easily be acquired at any time.
the most difficult trophy for most people (besides Charted! - Crushing) is Steel Fist Expert, which requires you to defeat 10 enemies in a row with a single punch. Why is this a pain? Because you may be on a roll, defeated seven or eight enemies, and suddenly you accidentally kill the next one with your gun, or haven't softened him up enough and fail to take him out with one punch - which means you need to start over. We've included a Youtube video under our Links tab to give you an example of where in the game this trophy is easiest to acquire - but be prepared to spend a good hour or two yelling and swearing at your TV while throwing the controller at your cat/dog in frustration!
