Let me begin this review by saying that I absolutely loved Uncharted 1 & 3 by Naughty Dog. Exquisite games. That's why The Last Of Us is such a disappointment to me. Anyone who's played this will have to agree with what I say. First off, I'll easily admit that the graphics, voice-acting and some game mechanics (such as listening and item crafting, among others) are superb...I'll give it that. Not a fraction as much action as Uncharted however. Now for the Blood and gore. This is what ruined this game for me. It's what reduced it from an 8 or 9 to a 2. The blood (like most games) is over the top and gratuitious. I'm sick of these games and anyone who enjoys them has a twisted mind. The truly low point is when you get to play as the 14 yr old girl and have her hack and chop up a guys face. Disgusting and despicable. And then they have the nerve to play some tender, piano music afterwards like this was some sweet, touching and endearing moment. What a joke! You get to use a shiv (prison term for a knife by the way) to stab your enemies in their neck. You bash heads into walls and watch as they explode into a bloody, brain smattering mess. Truly sick. The reason why Walking Dead the show is such a travesty. But just like this, most idiots eat it up. Back when games first started getting bloody, I enjoyed one in particular (Berserk for the Dreamcast) until I turned about 25 and had a kid. I guess it's part of maturing, but this sick trend of savagness and blood and gore is appalling. M for Mature? Rating should be I for Immature! Naughty Dog truly lived up to its namesake with this one. They should be ashamed.
