ok to give a fair review of this game i must first say im mostly a sports game and online shooter player/ madden, ncaa . mlb , socom confrontation (best game ever) and call of duty, now with that being said i do dabble in adventure games mostly just a hour or so and i stop playing, unless its splinter cell or dynasty warriors, so anyway i run a dvd and game trading booth at a flea market, a girl traded this game in 4 days after it came out so i decided to take it home and play it cause i had a week off work. well to make a long story short i started playing thing game about 11am and didnt stop til 8am the next morning when i finally beat the game. took a few breaks here and there but logged about 16 hours of gameplay , and needless to say im keeping this game , the story was great and the bond that developes between joel and ellie was amazing, the combat system was great and it had alot of splinter cell tatics invloved , i loved trying diffrent methods on clearing a area, from stealth to just all out gun battles , and you mostly fight humans more than you do the annoying zombies or clickers as they are called, the human will move and try to flank you, just incredible the way the AI worked in this game, the controls were easy and the puzzles or figure what to do next part out parts were not over challenging but made you think at times, i was impresssed with myself i only had to youtube a walkthrough twice lol, but this game left me wanting more of it, ill definatly be buying the uncharted series now to play more naughty dog games and only hope one day we see a sequel to this , but ill definatly play this game several times
This game is truly the best game I have ever played. HANDS DOWN. Throughout the years of my game playing experience, nothing has been so: emotionally impacting, visually stunning, challenging, and story engaging as this game. Every aspect of this game is perfect. Not one flaw. I am having withdrawals because I want more, except these withdrawals are a good thing because I can be patient enough and wait for naughty dog to make another game that lives up to it's standards.. "LAST OF US 2" As long as it involves Ellie and Joel. Regardless of how long it takes to make a #2. AS LONG AS ITS TRUE.

I've played a lot of games...I mean, a lot. I'm a pc gamer and I will admit, I WAS an xbox fanboy for the majority of my life. I bought a ps3 just for The Last of US, and it was worth every penny.
It's absolutely mind-blowing how gorgeous this game is. Both visuals and gameplay were amazing. At times, I found myself holding my breathe due to the tense close-quarters-combat and amazing story moments. Joel and Ellie are both amazing characters that you, or at least I, wanted to see succeed and keep fighting. The game had me tearing up within the first 15 minutes.
The ending, with NO SPOILERS, was the only part that made me judge. For the first time in my gaming history, I was unsure of how I felt about the ending, and I mean this in the best way possible. It made me think of the human condition and the way this world, even in the apocalypse, molds people to make the decisions that they do.
