Find out more about R834 and his Road to Platinum.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the sequel to the already fantastic Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, but manages to improve on its predeccessor in nearly every way. The game is near flawless all round, and is an absolute essential for every PS3 gamer.

The trophies were very similar to Drake's Fortune, with finishing the game on varying difficulties, collecting the game's many treasures, and racking up kills via different methods being the staple. Nevertheless, the trophies offered a fair challenge, especially completing the game on Crushing, which was pretty tough during choke points where there are lots of enemies. Most importantly though, the game is a pleasure to play, and unlocking the platinum felt very rewarding.

200 Kills: GAU-19

Defeat 200 enemies with the GAU-19
With the sheer lack of GAUs during the course of the game, and the fact that using the weapon greatly impairs your speed and prevents you from taking cover, meant that I reached nowhere near my 200 kill target, even after 3 playthroughs! Luckily, you are able to equip yourself with any weapon during any part of the game by employing the Bonus menu, and splashing out a bit of in-game cash. I simply used Chapter Select to start off in Chapter 6: Desperate Times on Very Easy, equipped the GAU-19 and fired away. It took a fair number of times (which I cut from the video to save you the boredom) before the in-game medal finally unlocked, followed shortly by my last trophy. With that unlocked, I eagerly awaited the Platinum.
