The Last Of Us Review | Metal Arcade

Metal Arcade: Jason Bakker writes:

The Last Of Us is a fantastic swan song for the PlayStation 3, a system which has become known for its exceptional exclusive titles.

Naughty Dog has proven themselves as one of the premier developers for the PlayStation 3 platform, delivering some of the most memorable and exceptional titles in its library with their action-packed Uncharted series. Their latest game does not feature a witty, carefree protagonist who spouts one liners amid a hail of gunfire and explosions. The Last Of Us is not “fun” – emotionally exhausting are the words that first come to mind. That doesn’t change the fact that this is without a doubt one of the greatest games I have ever played. (PS3, The Last Of Us) 10/10

Best game I've ever played, but now i don't feel like playing anything else.

That's how I felt when watching Breaking Bad. Nothing else seems to stimulate me in the same fashion.

I feel the same way about The Last of Us. It's bueno.

I've just been playing P4G.

It's a brilliant game no doubt but it's not perfect. A 9/10 would be more realistic imo.
AKS  +   290d ago
Do they define their "10" as "Perfect?"

The meaning of a numerical rating is something that is defined by the reviewers, and assigning a meaning that is unreachable doesn't make a lot of sense.

Just so you know, movies that receive 4/4 stars aren't considered "perfect" movies, either.
MetalArcade  +   290d ago
To be clear, no, a 10/10 on our site does not mean perfect. Everything has flaws, the rating is given based on how much I enjoyed the game overall. This game certainly has some flaws, but they are overshadowed by many positive aspects.
StevenvEekeren  +   289d ago
A fair enough argument I guess and you make a good point. From my own personal experience with the game though, I don't think the flaws are overshadowed by its positives. The first chapter was fantastic but then it went downhill and finally picked up again near the end. Don't get me wrong the game was brilliant, but I personally didn't have as much fun playing it as I had expected.
