The Last of Us is tremendous, to say the least. It is an unforgettable masterpiece of a game, with a truly beautiful setting, one that shows hopelessness in a way unlike any other. The world is full of greenery, detailed walls and streets, and amazing character design. The presentation is captivating. He grabs you by the arms and pushes you to the edge of your seat.
Naughty Dog does not disappoint with undoubtedly the best game they have ever made, and that says a lot. If Uncharted 2 set the bar, The Last of Us jumped five feet. The Last of Us was a fire that burns and will burn as long as there is a small spark. The Last of Us had high expectations that began with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, but in that time, players have had the opportunity to see Naughty Dog evolve and grow. And we are very glad they did.
This game tells stories at its finest with Neil Drukkman and Bruce Stratley taking control of this project. The less you know about this game, the better. If I were you, I wouldn’t even watch the trailers. In short, they hire a man to deliver a package to the Fireflies, a group of survivors trying to change the world. The package, however, is a girl. Joel and Ellie must take a trip across the country for Ellie to be delivered to the fireflies.
The gameplay, last but not least, is also amazing. It can be difficult and even frustrating at times, but that’s the beauty. Everything is worth it. You, as a player, want to go through hell just to watch a conversation between Joel and Ellie. The shooting mechanics are excellent, as are the hide and seek and cat and mouse tactics. Health is difficult to come by, as you must obtain the necessary materials to make a health kit. However, everything is in real time, so you cannot be in the middle of the bullets that enter your body to pause the action and use your health kit. You must find a shelter or not be seen by the enemies. Enemies now include terrifying clickers (infected blind but hard of hearing), runners (fast but deaf infected), humans, and more. In short, The Last of Us is a must buy. I would recommend it to anyone I know.
