''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.''
