  1. The Last Guy is an excellent videogame that re-invents the PacMan style to take it to a much more up-to date design. Despite of its short duration - it can be finished in little more than 3 hours- is a challenging and funny game, and its proposal to use satellite images of real-world locations as maps is certainly innovative.
  2. Imagine that your humanity's last hope and your sole task is to run around the city helping other people to get away from the zombies. In The Last Guy your are just that, and for a more than a reasonable price you get a game that's fun to play. The game uses satellite images from different big cities so you'll even get a change to save your own neighbour.
  3. Miss the golden age of retro? You’ll have a blast with The Last Guy, and while it’s easy enough for most people to get through if you’re dedicated enough, getting the top grade in any level is enough of a challenge to keep the hardcore working on it for days.
  4. The Last Guy is certainly a unique game. Unfortunately, it's hampered by repetitiveness and a few issues which are sure to lead to frustration in most gamers.
  5. The Last Guy's another decent example of a simple, slightly risky game perfect for PSN, even if it seldom feels particularly essential.
  6. If the idea of Pac-man surviving a monster invasion sounds good, add this to your growing PSN collection.
  7. If you end up buying The Last Guy you’ll probably end up liking it to some extent, and if you can try and pace yourself, and don’t rush through the game, you’ll enjoy it even more.
  8. The Last Guy is in no way a bad game. It is just too much of a love it or hate it title to recommend to all, and the best way to decide is to play the demo.
  9. Not terribly long-lasting, but worth checking out for some off-the-wall entertainment.
  10. A whimsical top-down return to arcade classics of yore, complete with suitable sound effects and clever integration of satellite imagery. A nice distraction, but unlikely to hold your attention for long.
  11. While you could say that there's nothing quite like The Last Guy--well, beyond the Work Time Fun minigame that the whole thing was based on--its unique feel doesn't make it a great purchase at $9.99.
  12. Visually it’s all a bit browser, but it’s not an ugly game. Sure, it’s flat sprites throughout, the animation is clunky and as we’ve said, some of the levels aren’t as nice as others, but the whole thing is consistent and not without a certain sense of charm.

    The evasive gameplay may not be sophisticated, but the original concept will keep you entertained for a few hours, and the sound effects and music provide a real sense of charm. [Nov 2008, p.111]

    It's weird...very weird. And whatever your expectations are, they're likely wrong. I enjoyed playing it, surely -- I just wish that it were as frustration-free as it is unique.
