Perfect

The Feels!

What are the words that I could define this Game? absolutely exhilarating. The Dynamics, Artwork, even the Characters bring a feel and excitement towards the playing of the game. Joel and Ellie's beginning of bonding put's an awe in my way of gaming. For those who wish to play The Last of Us, should be recommended, if your into survival-horror games. But this game is a must have, even the DLC was shocking!

Bad

Way Overhyped.

The Last of Us is a wonderfully story-driven game that has been praised by almost everyone who has played it, and was even nominated for Game of the Year.
Too bad it can't live up to the hype.
It's presented as a post-apocalyptic pseudo survival horror and adventure game, in which you must escort a young girl across an anarchic America to yield a cure for the disease that currently plagues what is left of society.
What it actually is is a stealth shooter with frustrating mechanics and overly-realistic gameplay. Once you begin to encounter hostile creatures, you're expected to stealthily evade groups of enemies or take them out one at a time. This leads to frustrating attempts that usually end in failure, and a gruesome end for Joel.
Yes, there are guns. But is there ammo? Weapons are too few and often impractical. And there aren't many opportunities to use them. If you use a firearm near a group of enemies, each one will notice and swarm you.
In short, the story is fine, but the mechanics are awful. This is one video game that would have been better as a movie.

Weak

Zombie game

I'm not a fan of zombie games. The gameplay & overall story were interesting, but not enough to overshadow the fact that it's a zombie game. If you're ok with that, this game would be awesome & my rating would go up to an 8.
