I remember being agog at many a point in that game and I did have a gaming PC too. I think its main feature was knowing how to use its graphics to great effect, rather than like Crysis that dumped a load of technology on you but had little flair bar a few sections.
Uncharted 2 was absolutely gorgeous. Surpassed many times now of course, but there really wasn't a lot better looking at the time.
Playing Planetside 2 is the first time I've had that mouth open "what am I playing!!" sensation of wonder since Uncharted 2. Actually Metro 2033 recently too, the opening of that is stunning but I haven't delved any further into it than the intro.
