Nine BAFTA nominations for Uncharted 2

Plus loads for Batman, Assassin's, MW2.

BAFTA has announced the nominations for the British Academy Video Games Awards for 2010, with Uncharted 2 receiving the most attention.

Naughty Dog's magnificent PS3 action-adventure is nominated for nine awards: Best Game, Action, Gameplay, Story, Original Score, Use of Audio, Multiplayer, Use of Online and Artistic Achievement. So pretty much everything it does, then.

Last year's monster-selling Modern Warfare 2 picked up eight nominations, while Batman: Arkham Asylum managed a splendid seven and Assassin's Creed II a creditable six.

Best Game will be contested by those four games plus Left 4 Dead 2 and FIFA 10, while the nominations for the GAME Award - voted by the public - were announced last week.

The awards take place on 19th March in London and will be streamed live online.
