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
With the PS4 just around the corner Naughty Dog has managed to give us one of the best PS3 (or any console for that matter) games ever.
This has the look of Uncharted but this is NOT an Uncharted game. You will have to manage your inventory wisely and use your stealth as well as ammunition and supplies are in short supply.
The Last of Us has a great story and plays like a movie...a good one at that. You feel for the characters and root for them throughout the game. This is one of those rare incidents where you don't want the game to end because you have to leave the characters.
Gameplay is spot on; Naught Dog squeezes everything out of the PS3 to produce great graphics and the voice acting and music are terrific (I like the southern accents).
By sending the PS3 off in this manor I can't wait to see what the Naughty Dog crew can do with the PS4. They are, by far, at the top of their game.
