You are the chosen one and it is up to you to rescue the last survivors on earth by leading them to safety through zombie-infested streets.

Then lead them to the Escape Zone before time runs out in this frantic game.

    Supremely stylish, cleverly designed, fiendishly addictive. [Issue#171, p.92]
  2. 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.
  3. The Last Guy is worthy of everybody's attention and especially of those who appreciate difficult, original and quality games.

    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.
  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. 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.

    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.
