The Last Of Us: It’s the Little Things That Count

Sean Halliday of Gamer Euphoria writes:

''The Last Of Us has so far proven to be a fantastic story. I say ‘so far’ because I’ve yet to finish it. It’s not often that I play a modern day game in which I’m almost physically glued to the screen wondering what will happen next. The Last Of Us is a dark, depressing and brutally unforgiving game that holds nothing back, and I can’t recall a game that has ever left me feeling so dirty after performing the act of killing. It’s this brutality, a sense of harsh reality, that results in The Last Of Us being so compelling.'' (PS3, The Last Of Us)

Agree with the Author, it was nice how they were short stories too with the notes left, just a quick 30 seconds too read, hate it when there too long cause you end up skipping most of them, think doom 3 had long logs if i remember correctly. truely awesome game and currently playing on Surviver lol, came across 6 pistol bullets in my first 2 hrs lol.

Pause the game then go to Bonuses > Statistics and your time is posted at the very bottom

I'm about to start Survivor. How much more difficult is Survivor?
nick309  +   681d ago
About as tough as hard but without listen mode, not too hard make sure you use stealth alot.
ginsunuva  +   681d ago
So many little details and additions that i'd probably kill myself if I had to program all those.

Besides the notes and scribbles, I also loved the smallest attention to character's hairs. They're pretty well done. Ah, maybe Im just too hyped up from playing so much of the game XD

Holy crap The Last of Us is simply the best game I have ever played and def the best graphics of any console
Williamson  +   681d ago
How much does the difficulty rise in hard compared to normal? I feel like starting again this time with hard, since normal is easy at the moment & new game plus is most likely going to be less of a challenge on normal.

Play on Survivor. It is an entirely different game. Every enemy is lethal and ammo is virtually non existent. Add to that no listen mode and you have a really really tense challenge.

For me, the saddest notes were the ones in the underground parts. The one involving Ish. Damn man, that was sad :C
Inception  +   681d ago
You mean that note in the sewer when Joel trap with Sam? Yeah, that also sad. I also got sad when find a photo of one family and there's 'forgive us' on the back of the photo >.<
r21  +   681d ago
Yup. So very sad. Ish was paranoid and alone then he seeked companionship...then later sadly loses his people :'C
Oldman100  +   680d ago
I want naughty dog to create a dlc that explores Ish's side of the story.

Most engrossing game I have ever played.

This game deserves to be nominated at the Oscars.

Did anyone catch ellie saying: "Boosh" after getting a bullseye in one of the houses?

I laughed my ass off at Joel's interaction with the dartboard.
d4sholil1  +   681d ago
This is the first game where I have seen developers put into play active clouds. Water is always great, but man, the clouds don't just move across the sky so to speak, they actually form!
aceitman  +   680d ago
The scene that hit me hard was when ellie was about to get raped by that man in the snow chapter then she bashed his face in with a machete..that scene made me cry..there was so many emotions in that scene...and you could see joel treating her like sarah at that part. This game MUST win an Oscar!
