The Last of Us Sure as Hell Isn't Uncharted - IGN

Greg writes: "It starts right after the ambush cutscene. In the smoking and totaled truck, Ellie tells Joel she's OK, and the passenger door flies open. A crazed attacker is on the young girl -- groping, grabbing and pulling. Ellie's clawing and screaming, Joel reaches for her, and another attacker throws open the driver's door and yanks Joel out. They tussle through a pane of glass, and the attacker holds Joel's head above a triangular piece of shattered weaponry." (PS3, The Last Of Us)

But it sure as hell will be mind-blowing like Uncharted.

"filled with scavenging for bullets, a segmented health bar, and other humans being a larger threat than any monster -- it's working in a way Uncharted never did."

It kind of sounds like DayZ mod, which is one of the best zombie mods ever created...can't wait ND bring it on.

Sounds like a GOTY contender for 2012 or 2013.

I hope it comes out in late 2012. Graphics are incredible

Hopefully there's some sort of survival mode for replay value. Imagine barricading yourself or just run for your life and survive! :)
Fylus  +   702d ago
Sorry for the late reply, by I totally agree. I'm getting a little tired of all these games with a "horde mode" where you just run around and kill until you die. It would be so cool if you could actually barricade yourself, as you said, and actually survive monster attacks and such.

Either way, I cannot wait for this game!

"...filled with scavenging for bullets, a segmented health bar, and other humans being a larger threat than any monster -- it's working in a way Uncharted never did."

Could it be? A game this gen with no regenerative health? This game is sounding sweeter by the article.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   702d ago
Yeah. They did that with Fallout 3 and it SUCKED finding health. :/
Minato-Namikaze  +   702d ago
Dude, fallout was a rpg,, your health isn't supposed to regenerate
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   702d ago
It worked pretty darn well in Oblivion and Skyrim...
sriki007  +   702d ago
finding water and healing yourself wasn't that tough.. You could find water almost everywhere.
Pintheshadows  +   702d ago
Wow, i'm surprised someone actually likes regenerating health. I personally think it is an awful system that should be iradicated.
DigitalAnalog  +   702d ago
@Pintheshadows
There are times where the issue of "health" mechanics can work depending what they can do with it. Regeneration imposes a mandatory mechanic where the design would fall into a do/die scenario. Regen-health tends to have waves and waves of enemies surround you while the tactic is to heal up whenever possible (usually in a confined space).

On the other hand, health packs could push for a better sandbox approach to dealing with enemies since the tactic is to NOT get hit whenever possible. This paves way to more sophisticated AI (which according to previews, are documented in this game) because one doesn't simply stay "put" and wait till he/she has full capabilities to finish off whatever adversaries they bring.

Half-Life 2 and its episodes are a perfect example of a non-regenerative health system working in a modern FPS with tons of shooting and "enemy waves" segments.

And on Fallout 3, health was extremely abundant. Early on when stimpacks are hard to come by, drinking the water in sinks and toilets can bring your health back to max quickly. The small amount of radiation that builds up can be cleared up by RadAway, which is pretty cheap to buy. It's basically free health. Later on, you're basically rolling in stimpacks.

My point is...WHY should we have to look for these health packs?!? It makes no sense to me.
MaxXAttaxX  +   702d ago
@MySwordIsHeavenly
You look for health packs to survive. The same reason you go to a hospital when injured, apply ointment on burns and pills for whatever ails you.
Are you serious?

Regenerative health works best with only certain types of games and mechanics, as mentioned by DigitalAnalog above.
You can't just go throwing a regen health system to every game ...smh

They already confirmed no regenerating health
Sevir  +   702d ago
Yep, resistance fall of man and R3 did this
and it worked well for both of them... But ND already confirmed that The Last of Us would have a progressive health system where you'll have to find things to help heal you. They said that wounds if left untreat could get infected and cause more damage later. and that saving medicines will help augment your health down the line in the games progress! And this was all confirmed in the Game Informer preview they scored months ago! :-) i'm really excited for E3
gatormatt80  +   702d ago
Yeah, I personally think that RFoM had one of the best, if not the best, regenerative health systems this generation. That's why so many gamers were upset when they ditched it, among other things, in R2.
sriki007  +   702d ago
naughty dog is one of the main reasons to own a ps3..
JKelloggs  +   702d ago
I have very high hopes for this game!
BX81  +   702d ago
Hmm
This game and the new god of war are the exact reasons im gonna pic up a ps3.
gatormatt80  +   702d ago
You should. We PS3 gamers welcome all newcomers. And with a fantastic back catalog at your disposal, at a bargain price, there's really no better time to jump in. Though I suggest waiting till E3 to see if there's a price reduction.
