Alright 80%

So first off, I’m pretty big on detail. I’m real big on the tech that goes behind these video games. Like the reflections and displacement of the water, the dynamic lighting, patterned and seamless textures, mocap and custom animations, things of that nature. And technologically, this game stands out bar none. Everything from the art and the visuals to the facial expressions. This game LOOKS incredible. Absolutely astounding. Every environment ha...

Great 100%

Wish I could experience this game for the first time again. The stealth and shooter gameplay is good, but not great. That is no problem at all though because the two main pros are the atmosphere from the locations, and the characters in it. This game made me feel all different emotions from sadness and anger to joy and disgust. Providing this variation makes the story more powerful throughout.

Characters like you've never experienced before
Insanely beautiful and detailed world

Puzzle segments not always that interesting

Great 100%

Naughty Dog once again created a fantastic, evolving story to tell. The characters are real, gameplay is engaging and fun, and amazing graphics with seamless cut-scenes (or non-cut scenes) are cinematic. But the thing that I enjoyed the most, and I feel has been very overlooked by the gaming community, is the riveting multiplayer. Easily one of my favorite online multiplayers yet. Filled with three different game modes that are very differently p... Read More

Great 100%

The Last Of Us is the best game ever made. Now, hold it right there with your pitchforks. I have good reasons. And so do many other people. The Last Of Us is one the few games that actually has a deep, emotional and interesting story. Joel and Ellie are probably one of the two best written and voice acted characters in video game history. The graphics are superb and make the game feel even more real and like a movie. The gameplay is solid. The st... Read More

Storyline

Joel, a ruthless survivor with few moral lines left to cross, lives in one of the last remaining Quarantine Zones. These walled-off, oppressive cities are run by what’s left of the military. Despite the strict martial law, Joel operates in the black market of the city, smuggling contraband for the right price.

Joel is asked by a dying friend to look after Ellie, a fourteen-year-old girl with courage beyond her years. What starts out as a simple job to deliver Ellie to another Quarantine Zone, soon transforms into a profound journey that will forever change Joel and Ellie.

As they journey across a post-pandemic United States, Joel and Ellie will encounter different factions of survivors that have each found a unique way of dealing with the infected humans, the lack of supplies, and the threat of other survivors. As Joel and Ellie struggle to persevere, they must learn to trust each other and work together in order to survive the realities of this new world.
