    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.

I enjoyed the story of Ellie and Riley and the “Street Fighter” section in the video arcade was the highlight for me. I consider this a must-play if you enjoyed the original game.

    Melhor dlc que já joguei, ela mostra os acontecimentos do primeiro game e também mostra o passado da Ellie.

    A fantastic insight into Ellie's backstory. Some great combat sections and a few genuinely touching moments. Its short, but remember, itsA fantastic insight into Ellie's backstory. 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

    This DLC was not something I looked forward to. I have seen many DLC that are so low quality and add very little substance to the original.This DLC was not something I looked forward to. I have seen many DLC that are so low quality and add very little substance to the original. then I saw this through to the end and I have to say this effected me far more than the entire game of 'last of us'. the story of the two young girls rekindling their friendship was so deep and it totally drew me in. It was so well staged that I fell in love with Riley and after finishing it I have found myself in tears a lot recalling the precious moments they spent together. It's so magical, it reminds me of a lot of precious moments from my own life and the delivery is incredible. there were times that I just didn't even think of them as characters, the animation and lighting etc was so realistic I felt like I was looking at real people.
    The action parts and traversing the environment was fairly rewarding. I liked the change in the way the game plays with the different character. climbing and getting around the environment seems more of a focus with Ellie and the fighting also has me feeling more vulnerable. which is perfect for playing as a young girl. Fact is though, she can truly do some real damage and hold her own in a pinch which impresses me no end.

    Pretty good dlc, but in my opinion the length of this dlc brings this standalone purchase down by a lot.

But nonetheless this is a pretty good compliment to The Last of Us, intense moments mixed in with unique/happy moments was what made this dlc good for me. If this was a teaser for upcoming sequels of the game, then I am stoked for this franchise. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I have been looking forward to this for some time now and I hate to say this but I am feeling let down. Yes it is very good from a story perspective but so was the main campaign. The ending offered no insight as to what happened with Riley, which I thought was the whole point of this dlc. The Last Of Us, in my opinion, is the greatest game of this generation but sadly this content is not among the best downloadable ones.

    I recommend purchasing the full game and this dlc but don't expect it to live up to the thrills and shocks of the main campaign

    It was a terrible dlc. Don't buy this garbage. I hope Neil Druckmann don't be ND's next game director.
