"The Last of Us" is a title that will forever go down in history as the best game that Naughty Dog has ever produced. Whether it be for the story, controls, graphics or just the way the game looks and feels makes this the best title to date over any console this, or any, generation so far.
The story line managed to jerk a tear out of me. But not one of the cheap grabs at the heart. It connected me with the characters just to ave my hopes of everything being okay dashed creating a very sad atmosphere.
I haven't seen information displayed this well on screen since Dead Space. Down in the corner of your screen is a little indicator that represents your health, shows your weapon and the remaining ammo as well as g=jury rigged knives and health kits.
This is very different from many zombies shooters in the sense that you aren't a tank running around blindly shooting the undead. Because if that is your tactic, then you will fail. This game requires skill, cunning and strategy all mixed in with a little bit of luck.
All in all, this is a title that deserved the rating but to be honest, I don't want to see another installment. Sequels always leave a bad taste in my mouth and I don't want to see this good name be tarnished. I would recommend this to all my friends(If I had any) and wont be forgetting this title any time soon.

Naughty Dog has done it again and this time better than ever, This game has everything, a great story, good characters, compelling moments and a great personal arc for everyone involved. If that is not enough the game play is awesome, the graphics are beautiful, the music is amazing, and the multiplayer is some of the best out their. I can literally think of no reason not to try this game, as a matter of fact if you have a ps3 have not played this game you are doing yourself and your PlayStation an injustice. Please Naughty Dog keep up the quality, between Uncharted and now this you have become my favorite developer!
