You need to think to survive in “The Last of Us.”
If you approach every problem with guns blazing, you’re likely to end up as food for the “infected” in the post-apocalyptic shooter from Naughty Dog.
The PlayStation 3 exclusive forces you to make the most of your weapons, your resources and the environment to survive. Sure, other games have done this, but “The Last of Us” does it exceptionally well. And it wraps its intense action into an enthralling story.
I realize that I’m being pretty picky at this point, but the inability to find something more significant to complain about just shows how good the game is.
“The Last of Us” earns its mature rating for blood and several brutally violent scenes.
Bottom line: “The Last of Us” delivers intense action, a great story and sympathetic characters in one of the best games of the year so far.
