Marco Polo inexplicably lost a bunch of ships in 1292. What was he carrying on board? This question starts Nathan Drake, the protagonist of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, off on another journey across the world to uncover the secrets of a mythical treasure, with set pieces including the jungles of Borneo, a Nepalese city, and snow-covered Himalayan mountains. Uncharted 2 improves on the original 2007 title with improved graphics, tweaked gunplay, smoother pacing and more involved characters.
