“This time we’ve maxed it out,” Naughty Dog’s creative director Amy Hennig said about the PS3 in an interview conducted at PAX last week. “I think you can see that it feels almost like a hardware generation jump between Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2. I think one of the most surprising things for people is that the graphic quality and the detail and the density of things going on in the backgrounds and the detail in the characters and all that seems like such a leap. And it’s only because we were able to really take everything out of the PS3.”
Instead of resting on their laurels and putting out a typical sequel, Naughty Dog “really revamped the game engine completely, the graphics engine, the technology.” And while she’s proud of the first game, Hennig says, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves as “quite an incredible package” blows it out of the water.
