    In 1292, after spending nearly 20 years in the court of emperor Kublai Khan, Marco Polo departed China with 14 ships filled with over 600 passengers and crew. Eighteen months later, when Marco Polo arrived at his destination, only one ship remained and only 18 passengers survived. Although Marco Polo described every aspect of his adventures in detail, he never revealed what happened to these lost ships, passengers or treasure on board – even on his deathbed.

    Drawn in by the potential riches to be found – but most inspired by the intrigue of the historical mystery – Drake embarks on a quest to find the lost fleet. He soon realizes that Marco Polo was hiding a much bigger secret – he had gone on a secret expedition on behalf of the emperor to find the mythical kingdom of Shambhala (otherwise known as Shangri-La) and to recover the legendary Cintamani Stone, the “wish-fulfilling jewel” of Buddhist mythology. The Stone is described by Marco Polo as a massive raw sapphire – if it truly exists, it would be worth billions of dollars today.

    This discovery sets Drake on a new course following Marco Polo's 700-year-old trail through a diverse range of exotic environments to find out if the lost city of Shambhala, rumoured to lie deep in the Himalayas, really exists. This quest also pits him against a new, more formidable adversary who is after the same artefact – a ruthless, rogue paramilitary leader with a private army and a relentless ambition to recover the stone for himself.

    Can't wait for Uncharted 2.... actually have it pre-ordered from Amazon.ca :mamoru: But considering people also pre-ordered the BlazBlue LE from there and still haven't received it nearly two months later, maybe I'd be better off getting it at retail.

    But I'd like the "Treasure Map" bonus item :hs:

    Do they have the same pre-order bonuses for you guys in Canada? Like the advanced demo, golden guns, etc...

    Oh Canada :o
    At least Future Shop will take 3 of my Wii games for $30 each.... going to go pick up Uncharted this afternoon, never owned a copy... maybe another PS3 game too, or maybe I'll save it for Katamari Forever.

    I don't know about best game this generation. It'll be pretty sweet though. It's going to be hard to top GOW III.

    :dunno: I think Uncharted 2 will trump MGS4, considering I'm sure it would be more of a game and less than a movie than MGS4. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge MGS fanboy and I loved every second of 4, but as far as 'best of the generation' goes... I dunno. I DO know that in-game storytelling > cutscenes, and playing > watching.

    I'm still a little worried about the cover system. It looks exactly the same as it was in the first game, and that's not a good thing. I thought it was a real bitch to lock onto certain walls and it felt awkward when trying to quickly move from one piece of cover to the next. Especially when you got rushed by the enemy.

    Other than that, should be a great game.
