I went to GAME’s The Last Of Us preview event on Wednesday night (22nd May) and played about an hour and a half of the game. It was a pre alpha build of the game according to the PlayStation rep that was there. I was very impressed with what I played. It involved creeping through a large derelict office type building with me playing as Joel (the game’s protagonist) who is accompanied by Ellie (the 14-year-old girl Joel is hired to protect) and Tess.
The Last Of Us is no run of the mill third person action game. It’s proper survival horror. You get limited ammo, health and other resources and really do, as Joel says in the trailer, ‘Make every shot count’. You can also craft items and weapons from various items you find. Things like bandages, knives, Molotov cocktails and other items need to be made by combining several components.
