Has anybody ever taken the time to read the maze runners series? The back story seems beyond similar. Amazing story line, that makes the game, although collecting the same stuff through a 12 hour story line, does get slightly boring. Stealth seems to make the game early on, but takes quite a shooter aspect near the end.
First off i want to say, this is a must buy!
The last of us is an amazing way to help close out the current generation of consoles,it impresses me on every level, from gameplay to story, to the characters. i was kept on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next.
the story it quite long, taking you the course from summer, fall, winter and spring and is a good 10 hour+ game, and that's without looking for collectibles and such. i found myself immersed, and connected to the characters, i fell love with Ellie, the girl your with through out the game, i felt like she really mattered. i could see the 2 main characters bonding as the game unfolds.
Now for multiplayer
Awesome but could use some tweaking.
multiplayer isn't some tacked on mode, there are 2 sides to choose from and 2 game types, survivals and supply raid. survivors being a tactical one life mode with multiple rounds, and supply raid being more of a team deathmatch. as you get kills you get "parts" and "food", parts help you buy bullets, and weapon upgrades in game, food can be picked up from a recently killed enemy to help unlock new perks and weapons, and then there are supply boxes, everyone can take from the same box, these boxes spread around the map they give you things like rags and alcohol, to eventually craft an in game Molotov cocktail or a med kit, and much more.
As you win games you earn more survivors, to rank up you need to earn MORE survivors, But you also have to earn food, other wise they get hungry and sick, those people that can eventually die off, if you don't get enough food.
The system works well, however, the game (as of 6/24/13) has some minor problems, i find that i have to shoot someone to many times to down them, even with a a shotgun at point blank, i also feel like some of the craftable items in multiplayer seem a little to powerful.
A must buy, 100% impressive, and a must
