Uncharted 2 steals the show……yet again!

by

As we are well aware, over the last couple of months or so Uncharted 2 has pretty much won every award its been nominated for and its done it yet again. This time at the 8th annual G.A.N.G. (Game Audio Network Guild).  Uncharted 2 was nominated for 9 award and came away with a very impressive 6. They include-

AUDIO OF THE YEAR

MUSIC OF THE YEAR (shared winner with Assassins Creed 2)

SOUND DESIGN OF THE YEAR

BEST CINEMATIC/CUT-SCENE AUDIO

BEST DIALOGUE

BEST ORIGINAL INSTRUMENTAL

The guys at Naughty Dog will need a new space soon just for their awards that they keep on winning. Congrats to the team though as they totally deserve every award. Uncharted 2 is breathtaking and for me, the best next-gen title released so far by some distance. Also a big congrats to Sucker Punch Productions (InFamous) for winning “Best Original Soundtrack Album” and also to Thatgamecompany (Flower) for winning “Best Interactive Score”.
