I couldn't even play a game for like 2 months after I played this game. Everything was right about this game, the only thing I didn't like was it ended.

TO BE OR NOT TO BE IS THE QUESTION?

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.

Pros:
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.
Excellent graphics

Cons:
The online game play has a little bit of glitches but can be fixed with a patch.

Thank you for reading,

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.
