This is an excellent game. Great Story, Great Graphics and Fun Gameplay. It has some really cool elements for a survival game like the resource management and health kits taking time to apply, so you can't just use them any time in combat, you gotta find cover. Naughty Dog did an excellent job with this one.
The graphics are phenomenal.
The story is great, fast-paced and very realistic in the situation/scenario. I enjoy the post-apocalyptic environment, and the element of survival and horror, but none of the single elements are over powering the other.
The sound quality is realistic.
The replay value is high.
The characters are phenomenal. So realistic, and very invested into their own personalities. Seems like the story writers got this aspect correct for once.
My only real negative criticism with this game, like most games is how linear it is. Especially in games like this where the developers are putting so much into the story. It would be nice for the creators and story writers to add some variety. Like a 'chose your own adventure' style. Meaning, that if you do, or do not do something it will greatly reflect the story. Some games and developers have accomplished this, and I wish Naughty Dog would develop their games more thoroughly.
After the game was over I was just feeling euphoric, and wanted to just keep playing it and knowing the characters for the rest of my life. That is how involved the story gets and puts you into the game, the lives and outcome of the story/characters.
