    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.

The gameplay has evolved and the game presents awe-inspiring visual effects. The Last of Us Part II displays the best post-apocalyptic world made to-date, and uses it to lay bare the human nature in various conditions. While the previous title was all about love, this time revenge takes the center stage, and makes us face our judgment 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..

    The story, the way Naughty Dog (especially Neil Druckman) have handled this, and the weird unanimously high ratings by critics areThe story, the way Naughty Dog (especially Neil Druckman) have handled this, and the weird unanimously high ratings by critics are unforgiveable and damaging to the gaming industry.

    Spare yourself the misery, accept TLOU1 as the end, then after reading the plot, watch a Let's Play. Don't support the game with your money, it's too divisive for that. This demonstrates is why the AAA industry is failing to produce good games any more, their stories are so limited by social justice that indie games are more enjoyable.

    I loved the first one so I was really looking forward to this one. I avoided all the leaks, spoilers and controversy and went through the gameI loved the first one so I was really looking forward to this one. I avoided all the leaks, spoilers and controversy and went through the game without knowing anything. here is my opinion of it:

    Pros:
    -amazing graphics and sound for a ps4 game.

    Cons:
    -The story is pretty meh at best, with plot holes galore, and **** all over the first game.
    -Most of the new characters are totally unrelatable and one dimensional.
    -The gameplay is basically the same from 7 years ago with some minor tweaks. By now we have seen that in many games and it has started to show its age.
    -The game is padded as much as possible, which ends up feeling quite repetitive and even boring. There are a few way too long sections that could have been cut to make a bit shorter but tighter game.

    Conclusion:
    It is not a bad game but it is not a good game either. If you haven't play the first one you may enjoy this, but if you grew to love first game like I did I doubt that you would enjoy this.

    5/10.
