    Great Game, Much Potential

    The only reason that I did not give this game 5 stars is because I was able to complete it in about 15 gaming hours. That is well short of what I could see as potential in both the story line and the "adventuring". They move you forward in the storyline in some cases months and I think that building the story in such a way navigating a map to get to the locations across country that you have to go to would have been an awesome addition to the game and deepened the story as well. Having said all of that, I did find myself getting attached to the characters and the struggle was believable for the most part. I always hate having to shoot someone 6 times with a gun to kill them but an arrow puts them down with one shot. But the game play was good, a lot of suspenseful moments walking in dark hallways anticipating the inevitable attack, all of that was positive and I appreciated how that influenced the game play. All in all, playing the game has made me eager to play the next one and even though it felt like I got through it way to fast, the time spent in the game was worth the 4 star rating. I will add that I only paid $20 for the game because I bought it just recently so that lessened the sting of only getting to enjoy it for about 3 or 4 gaming sessions.

    I bought this game when it came out for the PS3 and loved it. It was a 5 star game then. The Remastered edition for the PS4 just makes it better. The remastered visuals are slightly better than the original, but I honestly hoped for a little more. Maybe in the way of a little more AI refinement for the companion characters and more realistic character movements in some spots. Its not a bash because this game already out performs anything else out there when delivering facial expression, emotions, story telling, cinematics and over-all detail. There are a few visual glitches I have ran into in the game, but nothing detrimental to the experience this game delivers. The extra content included is a great bonus and puts the game over the top. So to sum it up, it's just a great game made slightly better with all the extras. I gave it 4 stars only because of the visual glitches that are not in my original PS3 copy, and because I experienced the only lock-up/crash I have ever had on my PS4. I haven't experienced any further issues with the game though.

    I hate 3rd person view games so I didn't give this a chance when it first came out. Normally I only play 1st person. But this game was on sale and since not very many 1st person games I like have come out recently I was jonesing for my game fix. So I took a chance on this and Horizon zero dawn. Both 3rd person. The Last Of Us is a very good game. Definitely sucks you in emotionally to the story. Controls, even in 3rd person which as I said I normally hate, were very good. Now I can't wait for the next installment which luckily for me, since I didn't buy for the first 3+ years after release, is not far away. I think in 2018. So I am looking forward to it. Now I am wondering what other good games I missed by avoiding 3rd person games altogether. Highly recommend you get this game.

    I would give this a 5-star like the PS3 version, but there are some things that changed during the remastering of the game that didn't make it better. I've noticed the companion AI of Ellie and other characters you encounter has been made so that they take cover with you more often. This would be a good thing if they didn't also "push" you out it. In the PS3 version, you'd either phase through the character or they'd just get out of the way. This time around, they can block your path in a doorway or push you out of cover causing enemies to notice you. Also, they've added ragdoll physics to dead bodies. If you walk over a corpse, it'll shift and flop around sometimes, losing the immersion. Every game has it's bugs, but I think I prefer the ability to phase through a companion instead of having my escape route blocked in an intense encounter. Still a great game though!

    Just finished The Last of Us and I loved it. In the beginning its pretty freaky, once you get used to it then it tones down. I think the story was well written and kept me going. I think how this game ends is up for debate on whether you think the ending was great. To me is was an ok way to end. I won't go into details, once you play and finish the game you can decide for yourself. Listening to all the conversations throughout the game makes a big difference so try not to get distracted while playing. The remastered edition looks great, but i felt like tomb raider definitive edition looked much better throughout. Don't get me wrong still a beautiful game to be a part of the 1st full year of next gen consoles. You will not be disappointed if you haven't played on PS3 before. Naughty Dog is on a roll and hopefully they can keep it going for years to come

    I had this on PS3 when it first came out. I played it, finished it and the traded it the day after. I bought the remastered edition because I thought I maybe was not in the right mind set when I played it and maybe now, being on PS4 and remastered visuals, I would like it better. This is a good game. The story is near perfect and Naughty Dog should be forever known as one of the best story telling studios around not only for this but for the Uncharted series as well. I still find the controls stiff but not as bad as the PS3 version and going from the Dualshock 3 to the 4 is a dream come true anyway. If you haven't played this game, you should. Get it and experience what was voted the best game of the Playstation 3 life cycle. Not my personal favorite but it's still good. It will keep me busy until something else comes out.

    If I were to use two words to describe the Last of Us, I would use thrilling and suspenseful. What starts as another ordinary night, quickly turns into a horror filled, run for your life catastrophe that begs the question "are we ever going to get a good nights rest?" As the main character in the game, you're tasked with coming to terms with loss of life, survival, and redemption as you escort a young ward entrusted into your care so that she can save humanity. All the while both your lives are thrust into peril at every corner from various entities looking to stymie your goals. I give the Last of Us 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to any fan of the horror survival genre.

    My wife and I got a PS4 console about a month ago and have already acquired 15 game titles. The Last of Us was one of our first games purchased when it was on a "Deal of the Day" sale. We haven't played it all the way through yet but the graphics, story and gameplay are all pretty good and this is a popular title. I don't give it 5-stars mainly because it seems that a majority of games these days are some variation of a post-apocalyptic world, whether it be Zombies, Nuclear war, or a pandemic as in this case, there just seems to be a lack of originality in game development. The Last of Us is a solid game for what it is and at $25 or less it is a good value.

    I heard a lot of buzz about this particular title, and it was on sale so I picked it up for my newly purchased PS4. The game is very cinematic and detailed but, for me, the gameplay feels a little slow. Maybe I haven't invested enough time but the few hours I've committed to it so far have been semi-tedious if somewhat interesting. My guess is it gets better with progression. Perhaps it's best played with headphones on in the dark, to sort of help set the mood of the game. I recommend it as an experience but it's pacing doesn't fit with how I like to play. If I wanted to feel like I was in a movie I'd move to Hollywood, oh wait......

    I really enjoyed it. I had never played the PS3 original so this was all new to me. While I liked the element of having to often sneak around enemies, I wish the game gave you more fun gameplay a la Uncharted. I came into this game thinking it was going to be the best game ever made based on the reviews I'd seen and heard. But the game itself wasn't an A for me. I'd give it a B. At times there is too much emphasis on story telling and cinematics instead of pure fun gameplay. Still a great game, but I would recommend a game like the new Tomb Raider over this for PS4.

    I'm only a few chapters in but there are a few things I can say about this game so far. 1. By far, the best looking game I've ever played. 2. The story in the first chapter alone is very moving...from what I understand it only gets better. 3. For those that like stealth and strategy. Not for a run and gun experience like COD or any of the FPS. You need to be very thoughtful about your next move; in most cases, you only want to use your weapons if absolutely necessary. I'm hooked on the game though. I can't wait to see where it goes.

    The post-apocalyptic setting and 'protect the cure' plot are nothing we haven't seen before in a million movies and video games already, but as far as zombie stories go, The Last of Us is pretty well done. Cityscapes overrun with wildlife offer occasionally beautiful vistas, and solid voice performances elevate the material, but I find the gameplay a little plodding. Fans of zombie tales and the storytelling approach of the Uncharted series will find plenty to enjoy.

    I liked this remaster because of the 60fps, on ps3 i didn't like the blur on joel's hair every time i moved, definitely took the best out of ps3, not sure if it took the best out of ps4, but the game looks good, and if you have it on ps3 and plan to get the dlc, think about upgrading to the ps4 and get dlc for free, and if you haven't played it, What are you waiting for?! You will love the first experience of this game, its so intense and feels so real when you.. well, you will see, I wont spoil you.

    The game itself is excellent and a "must play" for any gamer. The remaster is also really well done. The game really does shine with it's visual and performance upgrades. The issue though is whether or not it's worth it for people who have already experienced it. It seems kind of unnecessary to remaster something from 1 generation ago, especially a game that's mostly story driven and very linear. There's no doubt this is the definitive version of the game, but it's still the same game.

    A Cinematic Experience Worth Fighting For

    I chose The Last of Us because it felt similar to my favorite games out of Quantic Dream. Gameplay features plenty of QTEs and cinematic cut scenes. The visuals are stunning, and the story itself is compelling. The game is much too combat heavy for me. Combat is necessary in the event of a zombie-esque outbreak, but it is not sufficient. However, it was easy to become invested in this game and its characters. I'll keep fighting for their survival.

    It was a very challenging game with a great story, but it didn't really have an ending. It just kind of cuts to the credits and leaves you wanting some kind of resolution. I would love to play part 2 if they make it, just to see what happens. But I really feel like they should have done more to give us some kind of finality. There wasn't even a boss fight. I still have to recommend it because the story is very compelling and keeps you interested the whole time.

    I really enjoyed this game. The story line was good and I got invested in the characters and the mission. The only thing that kept me from a 5 star was how quickly I got through the game. Looking back at all the twists in the game it seems like there was a ton of opportunity to expand the game play and the storyline. Having said that, I really enjoyed the time I spent in this game and looking forward to the release of the next one.

    The Last of Us Remastered is just as beautiful, gritty, and gripping as it was in 2013, giving us an emotional story and truly fun gameplay. The only problem with the remaster is they've removed the "bloom" effect that was popular during games of that era, which means that blurry textures and poor graphics stand out a little bit more. Other than that it's a wonderful experience, definitely recommend.

    I just got this for my PS4 recently. Have stuck a few hours into it. It reminds me of the early Metal Gear Solid games -- where stealth is key. It also feels a bit like Resident Evil. The sound effects are amazing -- you WILL get chills if you have a decent system and the visuals are strong coming from a PS3 port. I get a bit dizzy at times playing this and there are times where the simple way to get out are hard to find. Other than that, GREAT game.

    This game has moments that will make you jump, and make your heart skip a few beats. I have not yet completed it, but it's thrilling to play through. One thing to note though, it has very harsh language... The little girl that is with you drops the f-word nearly every minute it seems. Then there are other characters that do as well. You shoot an "infected" little girls says it under her breath. I took off a star just for the fact of all the swearing.
