The Last of Us Review | Gamersciz

The Last of Us takes us on an epic journey through the life of Joel, across most of the country in which you are faced with the task of escorting Ellie. Joel is told to bring Ellie to the Fireflies, a friendly resistance group. You end up having to fight your way through zombies of all kinds as well as Hunters who are merely humans. Throughout the trip the relationship between the two grows so much that by the end you can’t but help feel for them. With the ability to craft weapons or medical items as well as improving skills it makes for a very dynamic ambitious journey. Is the journey worth all the risk or do you feel that by the end it wasn’t worth anything? Read on to find out in the full review. (PS3, The Last Of Us) 9.9/10

I've seen so many sites give this game a 9 POINT 9, lol... If they rank it that high, come on... just give it a ten.

My philosophy is that practically no game will ever be perfect. That being said, this game is definitely the closest to a perfect game we have seen yet. The .1 is simply because it isn't perfect in the true sense of the word but it's the best game we've ever played which is why it has the highest score of all our reviews.

Should be a 10
Heavenly King  +   578d ago
If no game can get a 10; then why DAFAQ that rating exist?

We know there is now thing such as perfection; but the 10/10 score already takes that into consideration. And it is applied to games that have so many incredible things that overweight dramatically the tiny bits of lesser greatness the game has.
GamerSciz  +   578d ago
@Heavenly the problem is once you give that 10/10 rating another game can come along and get the same rating. However, one could definitely be better than the other but having the same score wouldn't constitute that. Remember GTA4 got 10's practically across the board...this game is 10x better then that if not more so. Giving a game a 10 ruins the scale factor once another game gets a 10.

Yes Jogam, we should tell OTHER people what their opinions should be.

/facepalm

I agree no game is perfect but in all my years of gaming if I had never gave out a 10 because I was waiting for that "perfect" game.......this would be it. Why, because its so good that when those credits roll you feel something you haven't felt in gaming in a long long time and any thing that you could have thought wrong with it is forgotten. I don't know what more you could want from a game unless you have un realistic expectations.

I've done the same thing when reviewing The Orange Box. :/

Sometimes, there is just enough of an inconvenience there to withhold the beloved 10/10 score. Edit: But I don't necessarily disagree with GamerSciz's rating view about 10/10's.

It is a personal opinion sure, but if a game have all of these impacts on you, technically, emotionally, aesthetically and so on, then the game is a 10. Just because you get occasional frame drops or pop ups, doesn't make the game less than perfect.
Krew_92  +   578d ago
Actually with that score you can see he was fair, he only dropped .1. Other reviewers can be much more harsher than that, they would drop a lot more than that for small inconveniences.

Also even small frame drops and pop ups would make an otherwise perfect game, less perfect. Those are issues, not big ones in this case, but issues nonetheless.
wastedcells  +   577d ago
I never had a frame drop once. It ran smooth the whole way through. Unless I was so into it I didn't even notice.

Back off him, I totally respect his thoughts on game ratings. Everybody throws 10s at any new AAA title anymore and it gets redundant and hard to actually find the ones that deserve them. Nowadays it's not even 10/10 scores because 1-5 are never used, it's just a 5 point system in disguise. Right now a 7 in the industry is what the average gamer would consider not even really worth checking out when realistically that would make it better than average.

I've seen reviews that totally bash on a game and call it a broken un-playable mess and still rating it over a 6, which should constitute as ABOVE AVERAGE. WTF?!
Get over it, write your own review if you don't agree with someones opinions on a matter. Giving something an absolutely perfect score leaves no room for improvement at all what-so-ever, there's always room to take the next step, so let's not try to keep the industry average and stale shall we? Let's push it forward into the next generation

ps
I love this game, by the way, one of my favorites of all time

This is a great score guys. Remember even thos reviewers who try & give it a 7.5 or lower doesnt matter when this game wins GOTY. They will be the ones who look like reviewers who dont have a clue. 9.9 is a great score & yeah a 10 would look amazing but a 9.9 is close enough & is a great score.
