The most intense game I have ever played! The story is great and made me feel things in a way that no other game has come close to. Maybe having a young daughter in real life is part of the reason, but almost everyone will love this game either way. The story is the best of all of Naughty Dog's impressive performances.
This game starts off with a tough to swallow scene involving a kid, but you will quickly find yourself completely engrossed in the storyline. That storyline is what drives this game completely and separates it from your generic shooter. With ammo limitations, every shot counts, and this is definitely not a just blaze through game, patience will be key at points. The gameplay is smooth and the graphics are stellar. The fact that you go from battling rebels to zombies and back again keep it interesting because you deal with each differently.
If you enjoy games like "Heavy Rain" that are driven by their dramatic storyline, then this is a definite must. This one does not have a storyline that adapts to your decisions like "Heavy Rain," but the story is pretty well written as is.
