OXCGN’s The Last of Us Review- Brutally beautiful

OXCGN

"Survive.

What would you do to survive? How would this experience change you?

These are the questions players must answer in The Last of Us, a post-apocalyptic survival adventure which positions its characters front and centre, and rightly so.

Free from the Uncharted series, Naughty Dog have presented gamers with an original IP that isn’t content just to be a run-of-the-mill action title, but works to push the boundaries of storytelling and game design." (PS3, The Last Of Us) 10/10

This is the game of this generation...so I keep hearing. I guess I'll need to pick it up :)

Naughty Dog have proven themselves master story tellers in games and more than that have shown that good storytelling IS important in games.

Such as well crafted game. As engaging a story as it is as fun a game to play. It deserves the praise.

Naughty Dog have delivered yet again.

Haven't seen a game this universally praised since Ocarina of Time.

Ocarina Of Time didn't deserve the praise it got. Maybe because I like games with a deep narrative like Xenogears. Zelda storylines are brain dead to me.

To each their own.

I'll pretend there's no one here stealth disagreeing with neutral to good comments about this game.

I would like to see TLoU get the 96% average rating on Metacritic. Good job, ND!

pft who could disagree?

Overall game aspects considered, this is truly one of the best games this current generation has to offer. I'm on my third playthrough right now and every encounter is different from the previous run. The AI is highly sophisticated.

Love your pic!

But yeah any game that gets you back in for even a second playthrough these days is gold
jorellpogi  +   739d ago
Thanks! Yeah. Fanboyism aside, every self respecting gamer should experience this game. Watching Youtube vids is not enough, you have to experience it literally.

From the review:

"A personal favourite touch is seeing the way Ellie tucks in front of Joel when both are crouched behind cover; this coveys emotion without the characters even needing to say anything."

"A small but effective addition is used when the player reads a note or message found in the world. Joel and Ellie add their own thoughts to the message, making it feel a part of the world, instead of a tacked-on collectible."

Agree, I loved small details like that. It's like...Joel & Ellie are real people and i'm tag along with them doing the journey ^^. More devs needs to do this in their games.

I really think subtlety is the way to convey more character and emotion in a game.

Too often games tend to be drawing your attention to certain things, with bells and whistles attached.

There's a joy to finding the little details all on your own.
