Review - The Last of Us Part II (PS4) | WayTooManyGames

WTMG's Leo Faria: "If I had to describe The Last of Us Part II in one word, I’d call it an achievement. This is a title that challenges the overall conception of a game having to be joyful to be enjoyable. It knows when to make you feel miserable with its depressing yet fantastic story. However, unlike many pretentious art games that failed at doing the same, it knows it’s a video game and knows how to entertain you with its pristine combat and excellent exploration sections. It’s not perfect, as I had issues with its pacing, some of its messages, as well as a few nitpicks with its gameplay, but I can’t complain that much. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Druckmann, you did it. You didn’t win me over with The Last of Us and Uncharted 4, but you sure knocked it out of the park with this one."

I loved the experience of playing this game. It's my GOTY so far. Maybe Ghost Of Tsushimama will beat it, but we'll soon see :-D

Agreed Sushi, I finished it last night and cannot wait to play it again (have to let my son play it before i get another platinum runthrough).

I simply cannot believe how good the story is, the amount of times I was sat there slack jawed, at what was unfolding was telling of how invested I became.

I feel sorry for those who had some of it spoiled, but even then, regardless of whatever was in the spoiler (I avoided all articles once I knew spoilers were in the wild) the spoiler content needs to be experienced in the context of the full story arc

I’m not far in it at all (I just escaped the school in Seattle) and I’m loving it. The way the story bounces around while still keeping things tense makes me feel like I’m playing a Coen Brothers directed movie but written by Tarantino. I absolutely love that it has the unpredictability of real life.

Also the way the AI reacts in fire fights is incredible. I died several times the first time you fight humans because I kept trying out different approaches to it and couldn’t believe the variety at which the enemies interact with you. I actually said “oh holy s##t!” the first time an enemy pulled me out from under cover.

The amount of guilt I felt over the killing of enemy dogs was insane, this game really makes an impact on every level.

Great reference there on the Coen Brothers and especially Quentin Tarantino.

Just finished it on survivor difficultly about 5 minutes ago.

What a game. The ending, which I will not spoil for others. Breaks my heart. Going to be hard to top as my GOTY. An experience I will remember for a long long time.

The game is great. The whole time I am playing it, I'm thinking, man, I can't wait for the next one...then I realize there's a large group that hates change and rainbows and because of this we won't get another...

SamPao212d ago

maaan relax the game is selling like no other game before it :)

anast211d ago

I suppose it's not all bad news.

LoveSpuds211d ago

Sam, just remember, for every gobshite on N4G hating on the game, there are tens of thousands playing and loving the game.

SamPao211d ago
