Summary

With Among Thieves, Naughty Dog has shattered the proverbial bar it created with the 2007 original. This is quite possibly the best game to have graced the PS3, and without a doubt one of the greatest titles ever conceived.

We like

  • The stunning visuals that draw you into the complex and engrossing story
  • The strategic, fast-paced combat and superb multiplayer component

We dislike

  • The occasional hiccup with the controls
  • Having to wait for Uncharted 3!
