Batman, Uncharted 2 Top Navigatr Awards

Batman: Arkham Asylum and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves racked up nine and ten Navigatr Awards respectively, with Batman capturing the Game of the Year honor.
Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham Asylum and Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves racked up nine and ten wins at this year's Navigatr Awards respectively, with Batman capturing the overall Game of the Year honor. The National Academy of Video Game Testers and Reviewers Corp. has run its annual awards, as voted on by a body of some 640 game journalists and writers. Despite Uncharted 2 receiving the highest number of wins, Batman edged it out in nominations, taking 17 to Uncharted 2's 16. Among others, Batman won awards for Character Design, Control Design 3D, Game Design, and Supporting Performance in a Drama for Mark Hamill. Uncharted 2's wins included Art Direction, Camera Direction in a Game Engine, Direction in a Game Cinema, and Lead Performance in a Drama for Nolan North. No other game was honored nearly as much as those two; Brutal Legend, Infamous, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and Scribblenauts each received two awards. Among publishers, Sony came out on top with 15 awards, beating its own previous record of 11. Eidos took nine awards -- all for Batman -- while no other publisher received more than four.
