Now featuring full 1080p, higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, in addition to several other gameplay improvements. 20 years after a pandemic has radically changed known civilization, infected humans run wild and survivors are killing each other for food, weapons; whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a violent survivor, is hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone, but what starts as a small job soon transforms into a brutal journey across the U.S. The Last of Us Remastered includes the Abandoned Territories Map Pack, Reclaimed Territories Map Pack, and the critically acclaimed The Last of Us: Left Behind Single Player campaign that combines themes of survival, loyalty, and love with tense, survival-action gameplay.

    Remastered Features:
    -Explore a brutal post-pandemic world, fully realized with the power of PlayStation4 system
    -Includes additional game content: over $30 in value
    -Delve into Ellies past in Left Behind, the single-player prequel chapter
    -Eight new multiplayer maps in the Abandoned and Reclaimed Territories packs
    -In-game cinematic commentary from the cast and creative director

    One of the best titles of the previous generation is now available in all the next-gen glory and also with all the DLCs. Take it or leave it. [Issue#245]

    The heart-rending story isn`t romanticizing nor does it drift into the pathos other, less subtle games so often lean towards. That's the line where good craftsmanship becomes art, and an excellent game.

    If you have yet to play The Last of Us, and you own a PlayStation 4, I can fully whole heartily say go buy this game, because you’re in for a memorable time. For fans, this is one you might want to pick up if you want to play the game at its best.

    While The Last of Us was one of the PS3’s most impressive, engrossing releases, The Last of Us: Remastered feels like the version of Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic story of survival that the developer always intended us to play. Its story and characters are just as strong as they were before, but they’re now reinforced by far more amazing visuals, consistent framerate, and a nice selection of new bonus features and DLC inclusions.

    Naughty Dog's masterpiece is a must have for every PS4-owner that missed the game one year ago. But if you already met Joel and Ellie on PS3, think twice.

    Except for the Left Behind DLC, none of the other additions actually add to the experience. The game is just as good as it always has been, but with improved graphics being the only real selling point, the package is not enough for a second buy.

    Like it or not, The Last of Us is an undeniable masterpiece, despite some minor shortcomings in it's combat.
    Its immersive story, incredible characters and heart wrenching writing made for one of, if not THE best PS3 game of all time... And now, it's undoubtably the PlayStation 4's best title, and will probably remain that for a long while.

It's a movie with a great gameplay (different to The Order 1886 which is just a movie je je). This is the future of games I believe.
    Ideal for casual users, because the duration is 8-12 hours which is ok. And the addiction the game produces is unique.

There is no real survival mechanism, as you can't scavenge from the enemies you kill or the environment. I realize the developer wants to promote the feeling of a desperate struggle for survival, but they have shot very wide of the mark. They don;t want the player to survive unless they "survive" on a very specific set of rails, which is just no fun for those of us who like to actually play games. Beyond the artificial survival aspect there is little in the way of gameplay or real challenge. Most combat breaks down into stealth and hybrid quicktime events. The progression of the game is very rigidly defined.

    This is the worst kind of modern game.
