    Supremely stylish, cleverly designed, fiendishly addictive. [Issue#171, p.92]
  2. 90
    An outstanding title that's challenging, funny, and fresh. Yes, it's a download and it's rather simple looking, but once you get your hands on the controls and get to the point where you've tanked for the fifth time in a row and are plotting a path on the map overview before your next deployment, you'll know why this game rocks.
  3. Being the Chosen One is a tall order to drop on anyone, but The Last Guy makes it one of the most addictive downloadable games available on the PSN.
  4. For such a simple concept, The Last Guy certainly does make for an entertaining experience.
  5. The Last Guy is a fun and quirky title that took me by total surprise. It has the look of a next-gen title with all of the gameplay and audio elements of something you might have played on your Atari 2600.
  6. At just $9.99 anyone who loves zombies, weird Japanese games, arcade games or even giant eyeball alien games owes it to themselves to check out The Last Guy.
  7. 85
    The last guy's sum is far greater than its rather simplistic parts, offering up yet another fun and entirely unique game for the PSN service.
  8. As the name The Last Guy suggests, saving mankind is a one person job, so there’s no multiplayer. That means that once you’ve completed the game, the only reason to run around on these real-life aerial playgrounds is to increase your score and, in turn, your position on the game’s online world ranking list.
  9. The Last Guy is worthy of everybody's attention and especially of those who appreciate difficult, original and quality games.
  10. The addicting, classic arcade gameplay and pseudo-retro stylings make it different enough than nearly anything else out there.
  11. This creative revival of an ancient format proves that zombies aren't the only ones who rise from the dead.
  12. The Last Guy is a nice little game, which bears the charm of the late 80ties. And it rocks!
  13. The Last Guy is certainly one of those quirky, simple games that don’t look fun at all until you get your hands on the game and see it for yourself.
  14. 80
    With fun 15 levels to play through, The Last Guy is certainly worth a look.However, the downside is that the game has a very short life span.
  15. 80
    The Last Guy has a definite personality and style that almost completely overcomes the fact that it doesn't exactly make use of "the power of the Cell". It may not pack a graphical whollup, but it is more than just a novel idea. With truly addicting gameplay and a healthy portion of silliness, saving major cities from zombies is hours of fun.
  16. Overall, The Last Guy is a highly entertaining yet short-lived outing that comes highly recommended for those of you wanting to inject something a little different into your gaming calendar.
  17. Small, but perfectly formed arcade action for a bargain price. [Nov 2008, p.84]
  18. Definitely not your typical zombie game..
  19. It's a fun game that takes what you know about zombie games, bends it on its ear, kicks it in the shin and then pours malt-o-meal on its head as it laying there on the ground, good times.
