    Left Behind makes The Last of Us more relevant and an even better experience than the one we'd have playing only the original campaign.

    Left Behind is how story DLC should be done.

    Two and a half hours Left Behind has you laughing, get scared, angry and possibly even cry. The story is touching and the ruthless world of The Last of Us comes through even better than in the original game, due to little nuances in the gameplay. Left Behind is the highest quality of DLC.

    Left Behind offers the same emotion and intensity as The Last of Us, focusing on Ellie's relationship with Riley. Even so, the unbalanced relation between length and price may induce some players not to buy it.

    The Last of Us is one of the best games in recent years, and Left Behind keeps all of its virtues fresh. Riley is a great character and Ellie will be recorded in your heart. The only problem is that it is expensive for this duration of less than three hours.

    A bonus to the ingenious game is atmospheric, and although it brings nothing original, a return of the likeable heroes along with great gameplay is perfectly fine, even though it lasts for a couple of hours.

    The Last of Us: Left Behind is an extension that continues in the same vein as the original. The combat system is tight and the production is impressive. The adventure is however plagued of much padding, and a story that is more ambitious than actually good. The weaker section of the two in the series but worth a look if you feel you did not get enough last time.

Some great combat sections and a few genuinely touching moments. Its short, but remember, its quality over quantity. Some people obviously don't know the meaning. And to the idiot's questioning why the last of us got 10's and was so highly rated, it received these rating's because it deserved to. These same people most probably haven't even played the full game, let alone this DLC. Expand

Ellie and Riley were like sisters (if you played the DLC, you'll know they're more than friends) and one cared about the other, something that friends in real life usually don't. It compares Ellie's past friendship with her relationship (more like father-daughter) with Joel and tell us how far would Ellie go for somebody she loves. Ellie is more human the most of the real humans.
    I'd give it a 11/10, but that's not possible. So... 10/10, a masterpiece DLC for a masterpiece game

    OK. Great fan here. *******Contains Some Spoilers**** I can see why some people rte this a bit harsh. Its because the bar was set so high inOK. Great fan here. *******Contains Some Spoilers**** I can see why some people rte this a bit harsh. Its because the bar was set so high in TLOU. The DLC did seem a bit scattered at times flashing between the past and present but all in all it was a good background story and flowed well.
    As others say, it is short. I finished it in one sitting (approx 2.5 hours) on survivor and really only struggled slightly in one area where you are forced to fight and kill runners.
    If you loved TLOU, this is an essential addition. Is it worth $22? Maybe not but then again you get it for free when you get the season pass for $29 ;)

    At barely more than two hours long some might feel Left Behind is a little too short. For me however it is great example of what DLC canAt barely more than two hours long some might feel Left Behind is a little too short. For me however it is great example of what DLC can offer if the developers make the effort by retaining the great gameplay of the original, albeit in smaller chunks, whilst telling its own self contained story (as well as filling in a gap in the main games story) through delightfully written and acted cut scenes.

    A poorly written afterthought that was overly reliant on her relationship with her friend. If you played Last of Us, there is nothing new.A poorly written afterthought that was overly reliant on her relationship with her friend. If you played Last of Us, there is nothing new. When I say nothing new I mean nothing period. The game is the same and you know EXACTLY what happens. Nothing is added to the narrative and nothing is helpful in filling out the backstory. This DLC was a waste of time, it was a waste of my time and money and it was a waste of Naughty Dogs time. The only thing that people remotely talk about is that two girls kiss. Its there to either shock you, make you feel good, or to push an agenda, nothing more. This DLC ANGERED me and I am upset that I had to pay for it, regardless of the price.
    The combat itself is all the same. They force you to fight in a large and excessive enemy rush that seems tacked on and unnecessary. Even the often referred to ability to coax survivors into fighting infected is badly programmed at best. The enemies clearly seem unintended to fight one another so it becomes a joke to watch them flail around in a mock fight.
    You'll love this DLC if you fall into the trap of whatever message they seem to think they are trying to share. Pulling at the heart strings of the consumer does not make for a good game or good writing. Otherwise don't waste your time.
