Now featuring full 1080p, higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, in addition to several other gameplay improvements. 20 years after a pandemic has radically changed known civilization, infected humans run wild and survivors are killing each other for food, weapons; whatever they can get their hands on.

    -Delve into Ellies past in Left Behind, the single-player prequel chapter

    One of the best titles of the previous generation is now available in all the next-gen glory and also with all the DLCs. Take it or leave it. [Issue#245]

    The heart-rending story isn`t romanticizing nor does it drift into the pathos other, less subtle games so often lean towards. That's the line where good craftsmanship becomes art, and an excellent game.

    If you have yet to play The Last of Us, and you own a PlayStation 4, I can fully whole heartily say go buy this game, because you’re in for a memorable time. For fans, this is one you might want to pick up if you want to play the game at its best.

    While The Last of Us was one of the PS3’s most impressive, engrossing releases, The Last of Us: Remastered feels like the version of Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic story of survival that the developer always intended us to play. Its story and characters are just as strong as they were before, but they’re now reinforced by far more amazing visuals, consistent framerate, and a nice selection of new bonus features and DLC inclusions.

    Naughty Dog's masterpiece is a must have for every PS4-owner that missed the game one year ago. But if you already met Joel and Ellie on PS3, think twice.

    Except for the Left Behind DLC, none of the other additions actually add to the experience. The game is just as good as it always has been, but with improved graphics being the only real selling point, the package is not enough for a second buy.

    The greatest game ever made......period. No other game before it has told a better, more human story than The Last of Us. The characters areThe greatest game ever made......period. No other game before it has told a better, more human story than The Last of Us. The characters are strong, from the leads in Joel and Ellie, to each and every other character they are all given a defined life of their own. They all represent a side of humanity and the game does a fantastic job of creating each one as an individual, a unique individual. In hearing Hollywood is producing a movie, I cringed. They could not do justice to this story. At least not in a 1 to 3 hour movie. Perhaps a miniseries, 10 part, 10 hours. Anyway back to the game. The mechanics work just fine, the gameplay is great, the shooting, running, melee, all are top notch. The story grabs you from the start and does not let you go. I am a huge fan of Mass Effect and the development of each character within its story. The Last of Us creates a bond between player and characters like no other game. The entire game focuses on struggle, loss and the human desire to fight on and find any hope you can to drive you. I thought this would be another zombie game...I could not have been more wrong. Sure zombies infest the world, but the real terror is the people. Last of Us captures humanity in all its ugliness, and does it beautifully. I am 42 years old and have played games forever. I remember Zelda, wow, I remember a lot of great titles. Last of Us is truly in the argument for greatest game ever....period. Expand

The story's great, the characters are the best part of the game, and gameplay is great. I'd give it a 98 but that's not an option so I put a 10, the biggest negative is that the stealth gameplay is basic and repititive but you won't notice until the 2nd time playing Expand

These mechanics are simple, but intense. The real flavor and brilliance in the game come from it's plot and characters, the best thing in the game itself, and any other video game ever, with a heartbreaking story topped with an absolutely genius ending and interesting characters that teenagers and parents can relate to. The last of us is like an ocean; if viewed from space, it seems relatively simple, and when you dive in you'll see its flaws, scattered here and there, but the astounding things are only found when you dive deeper and explore the tiniest but important details, the only difference is... it's bottomless.
