The PA Report: "The game came with a long list of things we weren’t supposed to talk about, and that’s fine by me. You’ll want to go into The Last of Us as blind as possible, and I’ve done my best to avoid directly describing or discussing many of the game’s best moments and situations. Once the game has been out a while I can’t wait to share some more thoughts on the story and the ending.
Until then, the game’s combat, story, interactions with other characters, and even the notes you find scattered around the world work together to create a convincing look at what happens when the world goes to shit. The core of the game is the relationship between Joel and Ellie, and that relationship is built up in a way that makes sense, and both characters grow as their journey wears on."
