Broken Paradise is the twenty-fifth chapter of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The chapter follows Nathan "Nate" Drake and his companions Elena Fisher and Chloe Frazer as they advance through the legendary lost city of Shambhala.


[edit] Summary

After the previous chapter, the entourage now find themselves in the lost city of Shambhala. However, there is no time for celebration as numerous Guardians of Shambhala swarm the group, which distracts Zoran Lazarević and gives Nathan "Nate" Drake and his companions Elena Fisher and Chloe Frazer time to escape into the lost city.

The trio must then fight their way through hordes of Guardians, as well as fending off frequent attacks from Lazarević's soldiers. Eventually, the three come across the revelation that the Cintamani Stone, which is said to be housed in Shambhala, is not a gem, but rather a large amber stone of resin embedded in the Tree of Life. After this revelation, a heavily-wounded Harry Flynn shows up with a grenade in hand. In an effort to kill Nate, Elena and Chloe, Flynn pulls the pin on the grenade, and succeeds in severely injuring Elena. Nate orders Chloe to escort Elena out of Shambhala to safety, before setting off for his final confrontation with Lazarević at the Tree of Life.

[edit] Treasures

There are eight Treasures to be collected in Broken Paradise:

The Lost City, a map for the multiplayer component of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, appears to be based on the lost city of Shambhala as it appears in both this chapter and the final chapter of the game, Tree of Life.
