MP1st | The Last of Us Multiplayer Review

The Last of Us' multiplayer, though it does follow the same third-person play style, is very different from what we normally play today. By combining the core fundamentals of a multiplayer game with the same intense suspense that you get from the single-player, the multiplayer is surely one feat to be proud of.

The story is too old to be commented.

Even though it isn't the best multiplayer game I have ever played, it does a terrific job keeping you coming back for more. It is definitely different from games like Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty, but that should be commended. The Last of Us continuously gives you the opportunity to grow your character and even take care of a survival community built around your Facebook friends. With the use of an in game shop where you can buy stuff, crafting, and limited ammunition, it is definitely a breath of fresh air from the standard run and gun multiplayer that many are accustomed to.

9/10

I agree, with TLOU I get the "one more game and then I'll go to bed" syndrome, I just can't stop playing, now if only I could find good partners, lol

i'm gonna give it a go after i finish the SP, which I have been taking my sweet time with, savoring every moment. Without spoiling anything lets just say I woke up all wet.

Once I'm done I will give the MP a go, are there any new details about the season pass content. I'm tempted due to the additional SP content.

FTA:

" However, the system becomes broken at a certain point. Say you have somewhere between 120-150 survivors, that would mean you would need, every match, somewhere between 120-140 supplies, which is absolutely impossible without boosting. It’s not possible. Trust me. I’ve tested it and with the challenges that pop in and can wipe out 20% of the population, there is not enough to keep up with supplies. It needs to be toned down, and it saddens me to know that I may never get some unlockables due to this system unless it gets patched. This system is great, but has huge cons."

Is this true? If so hopefully ND will fix this in an update.

It is true, one bad game and you lose quite a bit of clan people. I think that, even though it may not be well balanced, it still gives you a reason to play smart

I saw the leaderboard and the person who's ranked number 1 had 300+ survivors in the clan. He/she surely got amazing skills to keep those 300+ alive.

Nitrowolf21188d ago

it's called boosting. I don't see how this is possible, even with healing, killing every enemy, and crafting everything possible in the given time, I just don't see it possible

@Nitrowolf2
Sorry, can you explain to me what is 'boosting'? I read some explanation on wiki but i still don't understand (english not my 1st language).

SolidDuck1188d ago

Pretty much sums it up. I came to the last of us for the single player and loved it, but I'm surprised that I'm so addicted to the MP.

Rhezin1188d ago

meh, I don't have tiome for the multi I haven't touched it since I played the epic SP game on hard. I will get back to playing it again, right after I play ALL of my ps3 games over. Getting ready for ps4...

I'm a retard. I got hooked to the MP after the brilliant SP then I lent the game to my friend cause he wanted to play it badly.

Now I don't know what game to play because nothing can stand up to last of us.

Veneno1188d ago

Why are people agreeing that I'm a retard?

Fil1011188d ago

Why call yourself a retard ???
