While the price point might detract some gamers, The Last of Us Part 1 needs to be checked out. If you already played the original game a bunch of times, there's still a lot of value present. Players that haven't experienced one of the best games of all time should buy the definitive way to play this masterpiece.
The Last of Us Part I is a technological marvel, making Naughty Dog's classic story of survival better than it has ever been before. The visuals are sublime as is the audio, and all of the other changes make this well worth playing all over again.
This remake reveals the secret of Naughty Dog's latest success, the way it has perfected its gameplay model, without ever neglecting the cinematic element. The story remains central to the experience in The Last of Us Part 1, but taking everything it learned from the second part, the studio gives us a true masterclass in set pieces of action and emotionality. We go through scene after scene totally immersed in Joel and Ellie and their quest, as if to "live a movie" that we no longer remember, even though we know how it will end.
The Last of Us Part 1 is the definitive way to experience the original story and Left Behind. However, it’s hard to recommend it over the PS4 remaster. I appreciate all the work that went into enhancing the visual and audio fidelity and gameplay. However, it’s just not $50 worth of improvement, and the lack of new content means you’re not missing out too much if you decide to go cheaper.
With a hefty price tag and less content than its more than acceptable PS4 counterpart, The Last of Us Part 1 is an entirely unnecessary remake with gorgeous graphics that only make its dated gameplay stick out even more.
For a person that sadly never experienced The Last of Us on PS3 and PS4, It was worth every penny, one of the best games ever. If you want to wait for the remake to get cheaper like I did, you will love this game.
It's taken me a long time to get around to playing this. I did start playing it years ago on the PS3 and honestly, it bored. Fast forward to 2023, and there is no denying that the "remake" looks amazing. Graphically its stunning, but the game is still a very linear, move forward, stealth section, move forward, gunplay, move forward, cut scene. The stealth is basic but functional, the gun play is pretty meh, which leaves the story, which until the last 2-3 hours I found, as I did back on the PS3, a little dull. I can appreciate that it was groundbreaking in its day, but in 2023, many games since have done it better.
While the game itself is still as good as the original, the issue stems from the fact that it doesn't do enough to warrant a high asking price aside from having a nicer coat of paint. If the game was sold at $40 at launch, there wouldn't have been as much justified criticism levied at this game. Or, even better, have it offered as a free, or inexpensive ($10-$15) upgrade if you own a copy of Last of Us Remastered on PS4. At full price, this game is a 4/10, for the game still being good, and looking great, but not doing enough to warrant the price tag. At $40 the game would be a solid 8/10. Wait for a sale if you want to buy this game.
Hailed as a wonderful and revolutionary game I decided to buy it for pc (I don't own a Playstation) and play this supposed masterpiece. A piece of crap in all respects but let's go in order. GRAPHICS VOTE 4: Old with obvious problems of stuttering and textures that do not load at times looks like a ps1 game.... STORY VOTE 3: Boring, predictable no plot twists, forgotten as soon as the game is finished. LEVEL DESIGN VOTE 2: If you want to call it that.....Tiny areas (looks more like mazes...) with no possibility to freely move from one to another (NO open world) it takes only a few minutes to visit them entirely... UI VOTE 6: Nothing special but at least it does its job. AI VOTE 4: Sometimes they forget about you and go back to starting point.... It is supposed to be a survival game but excluding the scarcity of ammunition it has nothing survival about it.... Example looking for food, building shelters etc etc. Bad game, boring and repetitive it was better if they had made a movie surely it would have entertained and enjoyed me more
