    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.

The story is flawless and keeps you wanting to playThis game hits you right in the heart and leaves you on the edge of your seat every scene. The story is flawless and keeps you wanting to play more and more of it. Finishing the game will leave you in awe and in my eyes are perfection. The online compliments the game even more as it's always interesting and challenging. There is a lot of teamwork online that leads to the success of your clan and possibly leading hundreds of people, as long as you can feed the mouths from doing well in fights. People need to play this game as it's a step in gaming history in the terms of succeeding in practically every aspect of what a game is. Expand

    It really bothers me that people are giving this a 0. It really just goes to show what kind of wannabe critics there are out there. Do notIt really bothers me that people are giving this a 0. It really just goes to show what kind of wannabe critics there are out there. Do not listen to these people, they're idiots with a warped view. This is a great game and very well put together. The story, the acting, the gameplay, all top notch. Yes it's linear, so if that's not your thing, fine. But to say it's a terrible game is just plain ignorance and those reviews should not be taken seriously. It is an excellent game, one of the best of this generation and greatly remastered on PS4. I'm on my 4th play though it and still not bored yet.

    To all the wannabe critics on here who think this game is worth a zero, there is a reason you're job isn't to be a critic. Because you're blind and ignorant with a close minded opinion that shouldn't be taken seriously.

    Civilization is a fragile thing; this is highlighted in The Last Of Us. This game follows a basic zombie apocalypse story, but it communicatesCivilization is a fragile thing; this is highlighted in The Last Of Us. This game follows a basic zombie apocalypse story, but it communicates it in such a way as to make it feel real. The story grasps the player during the whole game. The game portrays zombies as a way that is rarely seen. Instead of zombies coming from a nuclear experiment gone wrong, or from nuclear radiation, they are created from spores; they are not even called zombies as they are so different, they are referred to as infected. The gameplay was fun and entertaining, I wanted to keep playing to know what would happened next. There were hardly any glitches, the only ones that I could find were graphical glitches that would not interfere with gameplay, but I had to go under rocks to perform. There was also one invisible wall off the beaten path. This game also comes with all the DLC included. The left behind DLC helped explain what Ellie did before the story of the main game. The online was mostly fun, but the main reason you should buy this game is for the single player. Unless you got The Last Of Us on the PS3, I highly recommend this game. If you did get it on the PS3, you may want to play it again depending if you like to replay games. Therefore, I give this game a 9/10, it is an incredible game. Expand

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.
