Last of Us: Remastered Review | IGN

In 2013, I called The Last of Us on PlayStation 3 a masterpiece. The same holds true of its PlayStation 4 "Remastered" sibling. You can’t go wrong with either version, but with Remastered you’ll get a better framerate that smooths out gunplay, a prettier, sharper look, and a bunch of DLC content rolled into the package from the get-go (not to mention a whole fresh set of Trophies to earn again, if you have a whole lot of time on your hands).

The story is too old to be commented.

"With The Last of Us: Remastered, PlayStation 3’s best game just became PlayStation 4’s, too."

Well done ND :D

Was there ever any doubt?! The best just got even better o.0

This is a great opportunity for all of the new PS4 owners that came over from the Xbox 360/Wii and missed out on this incredible game on the PS3, to enjoy one of the best games of the last generation.

pedrof931395d ago

It wouldn't be fair to give this game the GOTY twice. But well done anyway.

ikkokucrisis1395d ago

Whoa the 60fps is insane. I was on the fence about re-buying this, but that video just convinced me. Multiplayer looks really quick now!

loulou1394d ago (Edited 1394d ago )

what happened to "you cant spell IGNorant without IGN"?? lol

anyway, game looks awesome remastered. naughty dog doing what they do best

edit replied to the wrong person

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Just because IGN is wrong 99% of the time and they are a parasite in the game community, it does not detract from the truth they accidentally utter once in a blue moon.

chrismichaels041394d ago

The Last of Us Remastered is receiving higher review scores than any game currently on the PS4, Xbox One or WiiU. A game this amazing only comes around once in a while and deserves to be enjoyed by as many gamers as possible.

SilentNegotiator1394d ago

Last year's GOTY scores great with better graphics this year...who knew?

showtimefolks1395d ago

never had any doubts, this is the better version of a 10/10 so yeh 10/10 very much expected

colonel1791395d ago (Edited 1395d ago )

Prepare for the GOTY remastered edition... Although, how lame would it be that a remastered game wins GOTY?

assdan1394d ago

I love this game, but it's going to be an awful year in gaming if that's GOTY lol.

Magicite1395d ago

IGN is easily one of best gaming sites, meanwhile Gamespot gone to crap level.

DonDon1395d ago

I think you have it backwards lol. Gamespot is more critical and they tell you exactly WHY. Ign is full of ads and things that are not gaming related, they praise games that are average at best ( COD, Watch Dogs, etc) just because the games are hyped by big corporations; IGN also name-drops products and seems like they are always on some other company's pay roll. Sorry but IGN is a joke compared to what they were like 6 years ago. Gamespot keeps it classy and kisses nobodies butt. And I've yet to dissagree on a major review they've done, whether they liked the game or not, based on my own observations of the game after purchasing it anyway. IGN over Gamespot? Wow. That's like picking EA over Naughty Dog--one caters to corporate greed, the other to fan satisfaction and attention to detail (without compromising own vision). No contest.

jmac531395d ago

@DonDon You obviously don't remember GerstmannGate and Gamespot's journalistic integrity.

ABizzel11395d ago

I don't really trust any single gaming website as my sole review site. That being said I completely stopped going to Gamespot after their hiring spree, because if you read the bios of many of the new journalist / "reviewer" several of them were casual gamers who favorite/most played games were Fifa, Guitar Hero, and iPhone games.

Now I'm sorry there's no way on earth I'm going to take the advice of someone with those kind of interest in gaming. Someone who's favorite games are touchscreen swipes, can't tell me how good or bad a game such as the Last of Us is.

And when your review score is an 8 (not a bad score), while your average user review score is a 9, and you have the audacity to have the average meta-score on your site too which is a 9.5, then more than likely something is off with your reviewer in that situation.

There were multiple games that I would look at in their bio history and see review scores of 7 - 8, for games avergaing in the upper 8 - 9 range, meanwhile they gave casual games 8 - 9 that were averaging in the 7 range at best. I called it quits, and now you can't even check most of their writers review history.

So GameSpot is off of my top 4 review list. I'm not saying IGN is better, because IGN has a tendency to fanboy out, but at least you know it's coming from someone who really games on your level.

Top 4

1. Eurogamer (the techie in me, helped push this site to number 1)
2. IGN (fanboys, but I'm a gamer and understand their passion)
3. Edge (balances out IGN review well, and I'm a semi-serious reviewer)
4. Game Informer (always good to have a print source)

Take an average of those 4 sites, and you get a solid believable review score for the majority of games, because it comes from a Tech standpoint, a fan of gaming standpoint, a level headed standpoint, and a generally neutral standpoint.

Ive been going to IGN for a long time (longer than needs to be mentioned lol). It went from a really good site in the late 90s/early 2000s (ign64 FTW). To really lame (04ish-around 2011 give or take a year). To today where its meh. One of the things that bug me about them (well, I guess pretty much any other site now-a-days) is they got to have a video on god damn near everything. Just write the freaking article and let me read it.

darren_poolies1394d ago

I agree, I don't see people's problem with IGN, I quite like it. Although my favourite games site is, they are brilliant.

Can't wait 'till the sun comes up on wednesday. (Launchday in EU)

GTgamer1395d ago

Wow the remastered edition look awesome not gonna lie it looks weird in 60fps but i wanna tryyyyyyyy it so badly Well day one for me and i will platinum TLOU on PS4 (•ิ_•ิ)

Imalwaysright1395d ago

Of course it is. Devs are what ultimetely determine the quality of any game. PS3 version even if is at 30fps and 720p is also better than anything on the PS4.

MasterCornholio1395d ago (Edited 1395d ago )

"PS3 version even if is at 30fps and 720p is also better than anything on the PS4."

Well buddy your not right about that. In fact your very wrong. There's one thing that's better than The Last of Us on the PS3 and thats The Last of Us remastered edition on PS4. I'm surprised that you missed that.

Didn't you read Eurogamers analysis where they compared the PS4 version to the PS3 version?

Imalwaysright1394d ago (Edited 1394d ago )

Huh? You do realize that Tlou remastered is the same exact game as the PS3 version right?

medman1395d ago

I can't wait to trophy the grounded mode...I hope it's accessible right from the get go for gamers that beat TLOU on ps3 already.

jocomat91394d ago

It is man (available from the start), I cant wait to 100% this aswell (did it on ps3), that silky smooth mp looked amazing!

98xpresent1395d ago (Edited 1395d ago )

It seems like They move a lot faster and smoother . So that's what 60 fps do

Edit: it seems like its more realistic on 30 frames

98xpresent1395d ago (Edited 1395d ago )

"It's seems like" lol at beginning of both sentences

Hanuman1395d ago

Not everyone lives in an English speaking country you know!

MRMagoo1231394d ago


I am guessing you arent from an english speaking country either, other wise you would have noticed 98xpresent was commenting to his own comment about his own typing. How in the hell did you even get 2 agrees for being a white knight gone wrong ?

duplissi1394d ago

They don't move a lot faster, they are moving at the same speed, it is just smoother, more like real life.

BigBosss1395d ago

I bet you are all waiting for XiSasukeUchiha to comment LOL

fallacious1395d ago

I'm waiting to see if that sad little person is going to comment on his own account with his other account.

inf3cted11395d ago

Nah its too late. He only comments if he is first or second, to get all the attention.

Tedakin1395d ago

So a better version of a 10 out of 10 somehow got another 10 out of 10. Shocking.

Wni01395d ago

Just like GTA 4

(7 page review)

DonDon1395d ago

Gta 4 should have never gotten 10/10. Big name hype. Also, GTA 4 was never remastered, so what is your point? Not that anyone would care if it was remastered though. That story and environment was so dull that it would need a massive directors cut to appeal to a newer generation of consoles.
