Win a Copy of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves!

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is certainly the best action-adventure game I have played this year and completely deserving of the universal acclaim it has received. The stunning graphics, witty dialogue, and the familiar gameplay all came together to make for a truly thrilling experience that I truly did not want to end.

If you haven’t had a chance to play in the boots of everyday man Nathan Drake, the listen up as Lisa and the gang over at el33tonline have a treasure that’s worth fighting for. They’re giving away two copies of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and in the spirit of KISS principle, all you have to do is correctly answer a question to be entered into the draw.

The competition ends on November 11th, 2009 and the full details can be found at el33tonline. Good luck!
