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.

    -Includes additional game content: over $30 in value
    -Delve into Ellies past in Left Behind, the single-player prequel chapter

    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.

    The remastered edition of The Last of Us is simply perfect.

    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.

    Its quite irritating how 90% of the negative reviews are justified by saying that this game is only a port and not worth re-buying.

    Those "reviewers" could have thought a little bit and actually come to realize that this game is targeted at those who did not have a chance to play it on PS3, as myself.

    On topic: This is the best game I have ever played. I've been a gamer for years and years, and no game reaches the quality this masterpiece has achieved. Naughty Dog is the Mozart of video games.

For anybody who never had the chance to play The Last Of Us on PS3 I recommend getting it, I consider this game to be the consoles best game or at least a great contender for the best game of its generation. Not only is the single player top notch the multiplayer is indept and addictive too. Expand

    General Overview: Fantastic story, smooth graphics and flawless game play. I am a PS4 convert so I can't comment on the prior console versionGeneral Overview: Fantastic story, smooth graphics and flawless game play. I am a PS4 convert so I can't comment on the prior console version vs. this one, but as a new player experiencing it, this is as good as it gets for post apocalyptic games that use a zombie-esque theme. Voice acting is tremendous, the story is captivating and multi-player is fun and well designed. All in all a must play game in my book.

    TL;DNR: 10 - superb, smooth graphics, great game play, exciting and challenging combat; tremendous atmosphere and immersion; well written dialogue and excellent story telling all around. One of the best games ever created. However, if you have the PS3 version I am not able to comment on any level of improvement, but this current version, for someone new to the PS4 I can say that this is a must play game.

    Technology/engine: Super smooth graphics, excellent game play supported by flawless optimization. Use the dual shock very well and nothing feels forced or superfluous.

    AI: Great AI with significant behavior variations keeping the game tense and fluid.

    Graphics: 10 - Absolutely stunning at 60 FPS and 1080p.

    Sound: Excellent ambient noise and great source to distance recognition. Sound plays a HUGE role in the game and it is very well implemented.

    Soundtrack: 10 - Very fitting music that adds to the intensity and immersion of the game.

    Voice acting: 10 - Excellent acting all around. Very well delivered dialogue and great moments of small levity in this harsh and cruel future.

    Crafting: 10 - Very well implemented with just the right amount of scarcity of resources. Crafting can turn the tide of a confrontation, which is how it should.

    Customization: 10 - there is no real variation in appearance but the skill system allows you to augment how you enjoy playing. Its another well designed a feature that really adds to the game overall.

    Gameplay systems 10 - Great stealth, excellent combat utilizing melee, guns and traps and forcing a player to think ahead and execute a plan of attack with few if any flaws.

    Controls: 10 - Great use of the Dualshock controller and integration of the central touch pad.

    Story: 10 - It is not often that you come across a game with such a deep and well told narrative. If you love games for the stories that they tell, this one is a must play and is in the ranks of Ragnar Tornquist, Kirkman, Ken Levine and other great narrative story tellers of game development.

    Multiplayer: 10 - well balanced and fun to play.

The graphics was looking more awesome, the combat effect was more brutal (which i love it), and the story was a challenging journey, between Ellie, Joel, & Riley. Sony games, is now more Hardcore then before. Expand

Chat will cut in and out, when you party up with friends, they will end up on opposite teams, finding a match appears broken - as it can take up to 30 minutes to find a game, and the facebook feature is not working. Unacceptable. Of course, they will release 5gb patches in the coming weeks to fix this. I'm burned out with this generation of gaming. They send the game unfinished while you wait or patches. Why no one else is talking about this is beyond me, but if you look it up it is taking place.

    PS3 is the better experience
