The Art Behind Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves arguably one of the best looking games in history, a game that has won numerous awards for looking so good.

Released October last year Uncharted 2 quickly became one of the best critically acclaimed games of this generation. The game upped the ante in almost every way. The game utilises many new development techniques and is a reel showcase for the Playstation 3. The images below are articles on Uncharted 2’s development by Naughty Dog’s artists. It is a really good read, very insightful and informative. Even if you are not an artist or haven’t played Uncharted 2, if you have an interest in the ‘behind the scenes’ of how games are made these articles are well worth a read.

So how does a games graphics get to look so good? This is how:


The next article is based on an interview with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves', Art Director Robh Ruppe. I find it really interesting how he says Naughty Dog functions like no other company and has no managers. It seems as if Naughty Dog has hit the nail on the head in creating a motivated team that enjoys work.


It just goes to show how much thought and effort goes into creating the games we play and enjoy. If you enjoyed this article the check out this similar one for Battlefield Bad Company 2

If you have yet to play Uncharted 2: Among Thieves it is available now. I highly recommend you play it.
