I believe this is the best game i have ever played.. the story is amazing, the gameplay is really good and the graphics are the best i have ever seen. if you play with a headset(which i highly recommend) the sound is amazing. if you have a PS3, this game is a must buy. and if you dont have a PS3, this is the game that you would buy a PS3 for.. while playing the game i would look around and it really looked soo incredible while looking horrifyingly apocalyptic. it was very serene even while there was infected and humans attacking you.. i cant recommend this anymore.. the best game ever.. one of my favorite games ever was uncharted 2, the last of us is miles ahead of this game(both were made by the same people). but dont think TLOU is just like uncharted. it is not. its more open world-ish and miles better than uncharted.. GET THE LAST OF US!!
I got the game on the day it was released and must say that I was instantly drawn deep into it (with gaped mouth and all). I've only gotten mid-way & not to spoil anything though, but my heart stunk as I gasped at the very beginning of playing the game. It keeps you gripping your controller as your eyes are drawn/fixated on the environment (A+ video/tecture & sound effects), not knowing what will happen -- but anticipating something awful is about to happen though. I've collected 'Uncharted' series games by Naughtly Dog and refuse to trade them. But, this game alone definetly surpasses them and then some others due to the intense nature of the storyline and the element of surprise. The voice acting a 10, but I don't recommend the game to kids under 10 due to the things that occur can inpact their emotional health and be very traumatic.
GET THE GAME!! You will NOT be sorry. ___=___ The developers of this game superbly did a fantastic job of storytelling, produced excellent voice acting, sound design and breath taking rich textured environments. The gameplay is beyond excellent, the game's creators did a stupendous job -- so much that a lot of scenerios in this game gets you to figure how to get out of situations to get to your destination. Before you know it, this game will get you to basically use your common sense, intuition & logic. I found myself resolving a lot of things by really thinking a lot of what would I do to resolve as problem/situation. That's how awesome this game is!
The enviornment is your oyster and at your disposal to use. It's like you're really, actually in the game trying to get yourself out of a situation! __ I also have to stress again that this game has such an emotional factor played into it that you can't help but be moved by what occurrs while playing it . . . there's a reason for every action. ~~~~ Okay, I already said this, but need to repeat it again . . . GET THE GAME!!! You won't regret it. A 10+
