    The Last of Us 2 is a masterful swansong for the PlayStation 4, and arguably the finest, most accomplished project Naughty Dog has ever embarked on.

    The Last of Us Part II is the perfect combination of an excellent Hollywood movie with a fat budget with fun and flowing gameplay. The phenomenal writing will touch every player and won't leave an eye dry of tears. Combat and exploration are challenging and lead the player to use creativity and improvisation. A real masterpiece and a must-have for every PS4 owner.

    Prepare for anger, fear, pain and disappointment. As clichéd as it may sound, Naughty Dog has reached a new, seemingly unreachable level of narrative design. The Last of Us Part II will hurt you in ways that no game has ever done before. This is a story you must experience. [08/2020, p.36]

    Naughty Dog delivers their best game yet –an exceptional game in every aspect. It is an incredibly shocking, epic, terrifying action adventure with an unforgettable story.

    Though it’s destined to displease those who built Ellie and Joel up as infallible, as an observation of impermanence, tribalism and the terrible cycle of violence that exists at the centre of what’s left of the human experience in this world. The Last of Us Part II is a spectacular sequel, it’s a brave and unexpected direction for the series, expanding on the world both narratively and mechanically, producing a far sounder and rounded experience that never falters or gets in the way of the game’s clear storytelling strength.

    The Last of Us Part 2 has a lot to say about us as people after we connected ourselves to these characters in the first entry. The journey is one that is not for squeamish, but it was one that deserved to be told. As the player, we must once again witness the reality of this harsh world and those who are brought up in it...The Last of Us Part 2 is a masterclass in environmental design, and that cannot be overlooked. The messiness of the second act doesn’t overshadow how significant this adventure is.

    In trying to subvert expectations, The Last of Us Part II discards the best aspects of its predecessor to provide a rote revenge tale that is ill-considered, ending on a note that makes everything — all the violence, all the loss, all the struggle — feel utterly, hopelessly pointless.

    Naughty Dog wrote a completely original story and most of the negative reviewers hate this part, i think it was one of the best stories i everNaughty Dog wrote a completely original story and most of the negative reviewers hate this part, i think it was one of the best stories i ever played. I don't know why people want cliché and overused stories over and over again. We could see the story in multiple perspective, know the characters past and feelings, they changed while we were playing as them. Finally not an antagonist (if we can call her that) who just a single enemy without any personality. Anyone who can write this story better should deserve a Nobel prize. Expand

    All it takes is a little push for Ellie to go mad and her quest for revenge story is a brutalistic masterpiece. Do I need to say more? PlayAll it takes is a little push for Ellie to go mad and her quest for revenge story is a brutalistic masterpiece. Do I need to say more? Play the damn game and fully experience a masterfully crafted sequel that will keep you on the edge of your seat and witness the sheer brutality that needs to be played. The first game is all about love, and the sequel is all about hate and you can see why how rare TLOU2 is compared to the first game and it’s unbelievable. Everything ranging from the newly fleshed acessibility gameplay mechanics all the way to the superb writing by Neil Druckmann and Westworld’s Halley Gross is pure excellence. Naughty Dog, this is easily your guys’ best work since Uncharted 2 and there is a reason why you guys are the top underdogs in the gaming business on delivering the very best experience as possible and I hope you guys get royally compensated for creating this incredible follow-up masterpiece. No wonder why HBO’s The Last of Us is happening with Neil Druckmann and Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin on-board for the live adaptation..

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. El juego es muy ambicioso y pulido con su gameplay y ambientación, de eso no cabe la menor duda, pero el peor error de este juego es el desarrollo de su historia, que rompe con todo lo presentado en la primera entrega...
    Nos vendieron una historia de venganza en los trailers para que al final se hechen para atras como si todo lo jugada no tuviera carga alguna en la trama...
    No tengo problema con la inclusión, pero la presencia de Abby y el personaje como tal se siente mediocremente argumentada y muy forzada cual si fuera un Fanfic, curiosamente tanto la protagonista como la antagonista tienes distintas preferencias sexuales.
    Ademas de escenas eróticas que no dejan nada a la imaginación, nuevamente forzandolo en la historia... (Qué coño pensaron en poner una escena de un hombre y un transgénero teniendo sexo anal?)
    Empezando, el incio...
    Las situaciones no se sienten naturales, sino muy convenientes para la trama (nuevamente forzadas), llevandonos al climax que es la muerte de Joel, tan absurda (por el simple hecho de que profundizaste y desarrollaste tanto al personaje para que lo termines matando como a un simple personaje secundario) como triste...
    Desarrollo...
    Al juego se lo siente con objetivo, hay solo desarrollo en el objetivo de Ellie que es vengar a Joel
    Terminando, el final...
    Resalto que mucha gente defenderá la muerte de Joel diciendo " es una muerte realista"... Pero hombre, si te vas a poner realiste hazlo de lleno y no hagas bajar a Abby para que luche cuerpo a cuerpo con Ellie en lugar de que esta la torture o simplemente le dispare en medio de los ojos (Nuevamente conveniente para la trama), me montas tremenda pelea, tremendo genocidio durante el desarrollo del juego, para que al final Ellie se heche para atrás solo por un insignificante flashback ¿Es en serio? Despues de matar a mucha gente dejas huir a la verdadera culpable (vaya obra de realismo, en que perra mundo viven?) que para rematar te arranca un dedo con su boca jajaja, no sé ustedes, hasta a la persona más noble la hubieran corrompido con toda esa serie de sucesos mostrados en el juego...
    La historia es una incongruencia total...
