    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.

    Yes if you have played the main story then you already know what happens in this DLC but it is still very enjoyable to play and it will still be an unforgettable experience, this really shows how good the game and the DLC is put together.

    I will repeat what i said on my main game review to emphasize what i think of this game.."To put it simply, if they did a re-release of this game on the PS4, I'd buy it again full price and buy a PS4 in the process even though i played through this game 6 times and done achievement runs."

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 review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Let me just star this by saying, if you enjoyed The Last of Us (like everyone else), then you need to get this. It's story is excellent, its gameplay is top-notch, and, even with the PS4 on the market, it still looks gorgeous. That being said, I have a few caveats that stop me from giving it a 10/10. It is a tad short, for starters. Normally length is not a problem for me, but I feel as though the conclusion with the two girls was cut short. Some of the combat, while awesome, felt a little forced as well. Also, the "reveal". I going to try to say this in as spoiler free a way as possible, but here goes nothing. I don't like what they did with the reveal, mostly because I don't like it when a character is suddenly and dramatically changed in an way that had no foreshadow or hint. Heck, if anything, we were led to believe the opposite. But even so, I would have been fine with it if it had been developed (as in Gone Home). To me, it felt like a cop out, and attempt to add more depth and characterization where there already was so much. Otherwise, the story was brilliant, and perfectly written. I loved all three hours with this, and I can't think of a better game to say goodbye to my PS3 with. $20 (on the season pass) well spent. Expand

    A great expansion to the original story. I loved the relationship between Ellie and Riley.

    The game causes a ton of PS4's to overheat. It's not even playable, I can't believe this has even gotten good scores. The system cannot handle it.
