This is one of those games that grabs you right from the start and doesn't let go until the final scene...I am 37 years old and it takes a lot to impress me and I must say after playing this, it excites me to see where games are heading and I cant wait till there is a sequel to this phenomenal game...The story telling and relationship of the characters is unlike any other game I have played...yeah the gameplay itself is a lot like uncharted and even Joel reminds me a lot of Drake, but aside from that its truly an experience to be had....

TLOU is a great game. Naughty Dog knows how to do it right. The graphics are stunning, game play is fluent, and the story is very well put together. I'll have to say when I finished this game, I felt as though I wanted the journey to keep going as I was involved with the charactors and felt connected.
The story is a great one compared to most games on the market today. It's a relief to see a company that still cares about a well developed story line rather than focusing on graphics and multiplayer (although both are also great on this game).
There are just a few cons, which is why I gave this game an 8.
-The gameplay can get repetitive. It's mostly sneak around, melee someone, and conserve ammo. It's always hitting triangle, and square while in combat. A kid that's never touched a video game before could play this game.
-The "puzzles" aren't at all difficult or interesting. More annoying than anything. It's always get a ladder, put it here. Get a plank, put it here, and get a floating rack for Ellie to climb on. Just time wasting really.
-Could have had much more to do. In terms of finding things, crafting, custimizations etc. No armor, changing clothes, skill upgrades limited etc. You can't tell me in a post apololyptic world that if I kill someone with a bullet proof vest that I'm not taking that with me...
Like I said, overall it's a great game, and maybe I am being petty about some things, but it's just how I feel.
Overall it's a must play for anyone that has a PS3.
