The storyline in this game is incredible and theIt's been 20 years since society as we know has fallen.Could you be The Last Of Us?
The storyline in this game is incredible and the characters are great.You play as Joel,a survivor that has been in this world since it all started and you have to escort Ellie,a 14 year old girl throughout the U.S. in search of the Firelies,a militia group determined to find the cure for the Cordyceps,a fungus that infects humans turning them into zombie-like creatures that brought the world to a crysis.
Ellie is the best character that i've ever seen in a video game and her relationship with Joel is great and at some points very touching.You will also meet some very interesting characters as you progress through the game.
The Last Of Us has got the best graphics that i have ever seen in any game in my entire life.Characters,weapons, enemies and environments are all beautiful and astonishing to look at.The way that the characters move is also amazingly realistic,and the cutscenes are,just like the graphics,the best cutscenes i've ever seen in any game.
This game also has the best voice acting i've ever seen in a game.Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson do an amzing job as Joel and Ellie,and all of the other characters and even the enemies are voiced by great actors.
The gameplay in The Last Of Us is brilliant.While fighting the infect or humans,the controls feel responsive,and both gunplay and stealth are awesome.While stealth is important as it is necessary for resource management,it is no less fun than gunplay,that feels intimidating and very realistic.
The developers have also come up with a very smart way to chose your guns.While on most game you can either carry as much guns as you want,or select only two for you to work with,on The Last Of Us you can only have two guns selected on your hot keys(or 4 if you get an upgrade),while the rest of your weapons are on your backpack and can be accessed by holding the X button,but you don't want to have to do that when there's a pack of infected runnig at you,which adds a lot more strategy to the game.
Crafting in The Last Of Us is also awesome,as it allows you to craft many useful things like first-aid kits,bombs,molotovs,modded weapons and other useful objects to help you survive.And one very smart thing about it is how some items need the same materials to be crafted as others,what adds a lot to resource management.
The Singleplayer will take you 12 to 14 hours to complete and you will love every second of it.There are many collectibles for you to grab through the game like artifacts,comics,optional conversations and many more to keep you busy after you finish the game.There is also a New Game+ mode in which you can replay the entire game with all the upgrades that you've unlocked in your previous gameplay.
And as if all of that wasn't enough,The Last Of Us also features a very fun Multiplayer mode in which you have to build and take care of your clan,and they managed to put all of the great gameplay elements from Singleplayer into Multiplayer very well.The Multiplayer is a lot of fun, especially if you're playing with friends.
The only downsides with The Last Of Us are the facts that the game is a little glitchy,there's quite a few visual glitches that will bother you sometimes,but it's nothing that compromisses the game as a whole.And the other downside is the fact that you can't use your guns early in the game on New Game+,but again,it doesn't compromisses the game at all.
The Last Of Us is a true masterpiece in every aspect.It's the best exclusive on the PS3,the best game of 2013 so far,and it is the best game that i have ever played in my life since The Legend Of Zelda:Ocarina Of Time(1998).
Final veredict :10/10
Thank you,Naughty Dog!… Expand
