The Last of Us: The Sights and Sounds | IGN

IGN: "After actually playing The Last of Us, it’s not the beautiful graphics, the brutal violence, or the approachable crafting system that stands out to me. It’s the sound. The Last of Us isn’t Uncharted, with its happy score wafting over every moment of gameplay. It’s a slow, suspenseful crawl through a world that can kill you at any moment. As such, it’s quiet – eerily quiet. You have time to listen to the rain pitter patter on windows and each breath of the infected you’re creeping up on to shiv in the neck.

But that's just part of the 20 minutes I played through. If you're the visual sort, my quick fire impressions are available in a PlayStation Conversation below -- as well as in the interview with developer Naughty Dog Creative Director Neil Druckmann -- but if you like these here written words, let's hit the highlights." (PS3, The Last Of Us)

Agreed. I am not a fan of DLC anymore, as it has "evolved" from "let's give gamers more" to "let's give gamers the stuff we removed from the game", but damn it if I don't buy every single piece of DLC available for this game.

this may be bigger than uncharted in japan.

I have a strong feeling that this may very well surpass Uncharted.

I'm glad Naughty Dog brought a new IP to the table. Looking forward to playing the demo.

I never understood why people want to play a demo of a game they are definitely going to buy. I don't want a minute of it spoiled, which is precisely why I don't watch any of the extended gameplay videos. I want the full experience to hit me when I put the disc in. I don't want one minute of playtime where I know what is coming next.

this sounds great! now, if only may was sooner.

EDIT: so this means sony won't be talking about the last of us at the playstation meeting, I guess. PS4 seems unavoidable now.

Well you can always paint the XBOX logo on a PS3 if that helps you sleep better at night.


Not to mention connect the playstation eye to it and pretend its a kinect microsofts greatest invention for the 360.


Kinectbox360 kinecting with the core 24/7 since E3 2010

Ok the last bit wasnt so funny....... No offense XBOX owners i meant it as a joke.

I realised how important sound was going to be in the PAX playthrough.

The last guy ran when he realised Joel was armed. Joel had to chase him through the hallways, but stop periodically and listen for clues as he couldnt see where the guy was.

It was very tense and a senario that wasnt a set piece or scripted at all, it was just the AI reacting the situation. Ive never seen that sort of gameplay in any other game before.

Enjoy some new gameplay: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

This is getting stupid. After getting floored by GOWA, I see this! I really wish that the media hadn't started going on about next gen because it's clear that the PS3 hasn't just got a little more to offer, it's got a whole lot more. I am convinced that if none of us knew about either of these games and Sony showed them off as lst generation PS4 games, people would be entirely convinced that they were. And that's not hyperbole. I'm genuinely convinced people would believe it ... Now, onto Beyond!

It reminds me of Manhunt, a game I really enjoyed. It wasn't as mature as this game, but the use of sounds was on the same level.
Outsider-G  +   848d ago
I felt the same vibe as well. It seems this game will keep you on the edge of your seat, not knowing what's going to happen next. Full of surprises, I'm sure.

Agree 110% about the sound in the new vid', fantastic! Got the same 'wow' feeling as when I first played Dead Space and heard all the distant growls, clunking in vents and falling pipes...or the spot-on gunshots and battlefield echoes in the Battlefield: Bad Company games. This game is made for 5.1.
