    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

    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 ;)

    This is a must play for Last Of Us fans -if you liked the main story game-. 2 things I liked here.
    1) You get to know what Ellie faced when she was trying to save Joel's life after the ambush in the uni during winter. Here the fans of The Last of Us Combat and stealth system should have their moments.
    2) Story and emotion intense exploring Ellie & Railly friendship. I read 2 of comic books "American Dream". But to get to play part of them is something else. I enjoyed watching and learning about this friendship.
    This DLC is short but worth it if you are fan of the game.
    I give this 8.5/10 but as there is no 8.5 here I will go up for 9.

    I only have a thing or two to say: A-This should have been free, total waste of money.
    B- Whoever put that Jak x reference should have

    B- Whoever put that Jak x reference should have thought about it twice, that is an awesome game, unlike the crap these guys have been pulling out of their asses.
