Analog Addiction writes: "If there’s anything to be said about this current generation of consoles, it’s that there was never a short supply of post-apocalyptic games which painted a picture of a destroyed world with no hope. These types of games come bounding onto our consoles with a very familiar feel to each of them. However, this isn’t the case with Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us. Now whilst it may look like the genero-wasteland survivor game many developers have promised us but have time and again failed to deliver the experience we desire, Naughty Dog has served up what they set out to do in a fantastic and spectacular fashion and I do not say that lightly. It’s highly unusual to state from the beginning how good a game is but The Last of Us might just be the finest game of this generation and everyone with a PlayStation 3 or at least access to one, owes it to themselves to play this game."
