The Last of Us is an action-adventure survival horror video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The player takes control of Joel who is trekking across a post-apocalyptic United States in 2033, in order to escort the young Ellie to a resistance group, the Fireflies, who believe Ellie may be the key to curing an infection that has ravaged the world. The player defends the characters against zombie-like creatures infected by a mutated strain of the Cordyceps fungus, as well as hostile humans such as bandits and cannibals, employing the use of firearms and stealth aided by capabilities such as a visual representation of sound in order to listen for locations of enemies. The player can also craft weapons or medical items by combining items scavenged in the world.
A true survival game. (Kill or be killed)
Excellent story line that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
The feelings and bonds you make with Joe and Ellie.
The online game play has a little bit of glitches but can be fixed with a patch.

So this review is probably very late in being posted as this game has received high praise while few others bash on it for the violence (See that “M” on the game cover, right next to it says blood and gore as well as violence) and difficulty (There is an easy mode!) The gameplay is awesome as it gives you a choice of how to play through most areas (Sneak on by or throw caution to the wind and fight Rambo style) as well as scavenging for items (It is a SURVIVOR game after all) to make the stuff you need. The character designs, voice acting, and story are some of the best I have seen in years.
As for the violence, you need to understand that there are no rules, no morals, and no good guy vs. bad guy. It is a game of surviving in a post-apocalyptic wasteland; to show the true face of humanity when faced with the possibility of death on a day to day basis. It shows what people could be capable of when faced with a situation like this. It is every last man for himself. This is not your typical linear game where everything gets handed to you in a treasure chest or dropped from some big baddie. To survive, you need to search for stuff; otherwise it’s not a survivor game. As for myself, I have nothing but high praise for the game, only thing I criticize is the swimming controls. I even know a friend who bought a PS3 just to buy and play The Last of Us.

By now, every proud owner of a PS3 is fully aware of this EPIC dev teams ability to pull u rite into the game story. Uncharted changed the game with its action packed deep and intriguing storyline. Making you feel connected to the characters and their struggles through an amazing script, thrilling action sequences and the best voice over actors in the gaming biz. The Last Of Us is no exception.
Once again Naughty Dog has gone the extra mile and then some with this new property. Grabbing you rite from the prologue with an intense emotional connection that will break your heart and have you salivating for answers and vengeance. An emotional roller coaster and action thrill ride with the one of a kind voice over perfection we've all come to expect from this studio. This is a must play and replay, lol. This game is so well done, that it will leave even the most die hard XBox gamers looking to get their hands on a PS3. I always have high expectations of Naughty Dog, an they have yet to disappoint. In fact, The Last Of Us not just compairs to Uncharterd, but it even takes a step further in the direction of greatness. I can't say to much about this game without spoiling its fantastically twisted plot line. What are you still reading this for?! Click that Rent button NOW and treat yourself to a breathtaking adventure!
