The Last of Us Review | Forbes

Forbes: If you play games to enjoy superhuman powers and high-tech weaponry, The Last of Us might not be your cup of joel. The game’s deliberate pace may not suit everyone. Every once in a while, it didn’t even suit me. Joel and Ellie’s journey may have taken its time, but with gameplay that requires thought and consideration, I’m very glad to have joined them on their adventure.

Forbes is infected by the fungus...

jimbobwahey1994d ago

I think they're infected by something else if you take into account the amount of articles they publish that try to paint Sony in a negative light while constantly praising Microsoft.

If anywhere else gave this game an 8/10 I'd think "Fair enough" but when it's Forbes? I can't help but shake my head at their shameful bias.


Lol Forbes, a non-dedicated gaming site rating a game! It just like the reviews we get from Playboy. Metacritics shouldn't include those type of sites even if they give perfect scores let alone bad scores.

dedicatedtogamers1994d ago

Brush it off. Who cares? This game is holding a 95/100 average on Meta with 50 - yes, F.I.F.T.Y - reviews. An 8/10...heck, even a 7 or 6 won't be able to bring down this titanic score

Ashunderfire861994d ago

Just like Gamespot Review, who also didn't go into much detail with just 3 mins and 40 secs.



I find this game doesn't deserve less than 9, and i feel any site giving it less is trolling or looking for hits.

despair1994d ago

Forbes does game reviews? Huh, didn't know.

duli141994d ago

You forgot the 10/10 from IGN

wantonGamer1994d ago


this is all that needs to be said. Clearly those 'other' sites are starving for some quick traffic. Well, I won't give them the pleasure.

jimbobwahey1994d ago

Polygon got a $200k grant from Microsoft when they were starting out (it might have been higher? I forget the exact figure now) so make of that what you will :)

wantonGamer1994d ago

I know right ! People say we're Sony trolls for stating the truth.

To them I say, keep staring at your Xbox, waiting for it to do something.

unchartedxplorer1994d ago (Edited 1994d ago )

So the game's perfect then?

friedricr1994d ago

also adam sessler / rev3 gave it a 5/5

FreakdoutKid1994d ago

state of decay scored 9 at

Grap1994d ago

i don't know why that's a lol.

despair1994d ago

Why is it not good? I thought it looked pretty good.

adorie1994d ago

Polygon is an absolute joke. If only people forgot they existed, they'd die off and decompose into obscurity.

Not because of their lower-end score for The Last of Us, but because they are a joke in general and should be treated as nothing more than large, naked, hairless man rolling down a long, steep hill.


Oh my god at this Awesomness!

despair1994d ago

Thank you for this, was trying to see the scores without spoiling any of the game with the actual review, the 10/10 from Eurogamer is a surprise, they are usually some of the harshest reviewers, sometimes unfairly so.

news4noobs1993d ago

looks like polygon, gamespot and forbes are the only ones that didn't receive the money...

Forbes is a MicroSOft site, everyone knows that/factoid.
