The Last of Us Review | Dealspwn

Dealspwn: "The game left me feeling cold at the end, and wanting a hug, and despairing for humanity. But it didn't make me necessarily think or feel or wonder in the way The Walking Dead or Bioshock Infinite or any Fallout game did. Of course, it's not about you or I; it's about Joel and Ellie, and their story is masterfully constructed.

"It's a ripping yarn, and that's the main thing, isn't it."

Review reads like an 8 to me, and gets Editor's Choice award. I haven't played TLOU so can't really comment yet...

thereapersson1988d ago (Edited 1988d ago )

I already know I'm buying this game... a few 8's and 7.5's aren't going to change my mind. There are a lot of 10's floating around.

TLOU is probably going to be PS3's finest hour since MGS4 and Uncharted 2. I told myself specifically not to play the demo or read any spoilers. I am trying to go in as fresh as possible.

It`s so funny to see the hypocrites from all over the world. First you hate ign, then you love them. Then you say reviews do not matter, it`s only opinions. Now it`s worth more than gold.
Can you please make up your mind?
I will buy this game, but it isn`t Demon`s Soul`s or Zelda. Probably a very good story, a one time play through and forgotten after a couple of months.
I`m sorry to disagree with the hype even though I haven`t played the game yet, but you over-hypers with teen minds haven`t either.

Are you for real ? Look up the review for Castlevania 3DS from IGN buckets overflowing with tears then look at the review for Luigis Mansion 2 for the 3DS

"IGN reviews are trust worthy and awesome now"

Also do you specifically know how many times each person plays a Naughty Dog game over and over again ?

You can't even respond to me you have no bubbles :/

I'm not lieing, IGN got mad hate for Castlevania on the 3DS and that game looked nothing like the epic games from the DS, what is the excuse for the hypocrisy in the Luigis Mansion review comment section in IGN ? I thought IGN was terrible.

Ezz20131988d ago

with all the amazing scores it have
i don't know why you think 8/10 mean this a troll review ?!
it just his opinion
there is no game will always be loved by every one
no matter how good it is
keep that in you mind and move on

this is a huge GOTY contender
can't wait

BlackTar1871988d ago

good post.

8 is still very good. This generation poisoned the value of review scores along with a bunch of other things. yes we got some good games but this gen has been the worst in regards to almost everything besides MP games.

DigitalRaptor1988d ago (Edited 1988d ago )

Exactly dude. There's absolutely no way in the universe that this game is not good. In fact ultimately, it's ranking as one of the greatest games of this generation. Perfect score aside, the content of these reviews prove that the quality is there in spades, regardless.

According to those that have played it, it has one of the best and most memorable introductions of any game, ever. It also has one of the best endings ever, and this is according to multiple sources. The in between bits are nothing to scoff at either. In other words, even the "lower" scores shouldn't be enough to put anybody off this game.

Game of the Year for sure, and likely one of the best games of this generation. I can't wait to experience all them feels.

showtimefolks1988d ago

When some of the sites editors are debating game of the decade than I don't think a review score matters. This is a excellent game whether it gets a 8 or a 10 really doesn't matter

Is your enjoyment any less because it got a 8?

My only thing is it can't get here soon enough

ChipChipperson1988d ago

I agree, it really doesn't matter. But, you gotta admit, it's still pretty funny seeing people get upset over the scores for big release titles like this. I mean, do people really need these reviewers to give 10s/perfect scores/awards as an admission of agreement in order to enjoy the games they've been waiting for? Other than that, I can't wait for the game. I really enjoyed that intense vibe the last part of the demo had with the Screamers and Clicker.

Williamson1988d ago

The majority who reviewed this game gave it perfect scores/9-9.5 so that tells us what a great game it is. 8 is also a great score but I would give it a 10 from just playing the demo.

DasTier1988d ago

You do realize that demos, much like film trailers are designed to show off the best parts/features?

Would you give a film 10/10 just from the trailer? No? Then don't be a tit.

Williamson1988d ago

I'll do what I want and you do what you want, don't like me giving it a 10 off of a demo? Then just move along and don't be an ass.

TongkatAli1988d ago

I cant give a numerical score from a demo, that doesn't make sense to me. It's either good or bad then i decide what it is.

Williamson1988d ago

That's cool if you don't make decisions on a game from a demo, but after playing the demo at least 8 times and knowing how great ND past games were I put my faith in them to deliver .It makes sense to me to give it a 10 just from a demo.

Arietos1988d ago

8/10 is a good score, no reason to cry. Stop your childish being. Accept the score, be quite on your chair and Play, after you can go sleeping or make a mushroomsoup. They (gaming media, industry ecc.) want nothing more than this from the customers...

pandehz1988d ago

Am I the only one who thought the demo was bland with quite boring combat painted on with cinematic camera angles.
