Tough luck, single-player fans. Naughty Dog has confirmed that there won't be any single-player demo for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. According to top Dog Evan Wells, collapsing Uncharted 2's whole experience into a 15-minute demo is just too tall an order.
"It's a 12-15 hour experience and you have to somehow collapse that into 15 minutes," Wells told 1Up. "I mean, we have something like hundreds of moves to train you over several hours, and if you just drop somebody into the fire.."
Creative director Amy Hennig, however, added that even though it's hard to take a slice, the multiplayer demo "actually gives you that, "if you're enjoying this gameplay, you're going to enjoy single-player gameplay," which is certainly a benefit that we didn't have last time."
Too bad. I'm not really a multiplayer guy (except for fighting games), but I'll take what I can get. I bet Mabie would too. Plus, replayability is likely to be higher in a multiplayer demo. What do you guys think?
