The Last of Us is beautifully heartbreaking | GmaNewsOnline

By Michael Logarta

Other games have tackled the zombie apocalypse before, but none give the player the sense of desperation and desolation that The Last of Us does. It is this tribute to despair where the game absolutely shines. It is the constant, nagging feeling that everything and anything you do will result in failure – or worse, the loss of your humanity – that makes every second of gameplay so profoundly nerve-wracking. It is survival horror at its finest, a stealth action game where every shot counts, and the smallest mistake can spell your immediate doom.

Intense combat, fantastic sound and visuals, and well-written, complex characters make The Last of Us not only a great game, but a beautiful one. It is a prime example of the video game as a proper storytelling medium, as a bona fide work of art. If you have a PS3, this is the definitive addition to your library of classic titles… because, simply put, that is what the The Last of Us is: a classic. (PS3, The Last Of Us) -
