From the moment the first cutscene started playing, I was hooked! This story is the best Ive ever seen in any video game in my 20 years of gaming. It is that good! Remind me of how good the first Metal Gear Solid was when it first came out for PS. The gameplay and the difficulty also is top notch. The graphics are beautiful. 60FPS and great lighting. I think Killzone looks a little bit better but Killzone is not very good so TLOU wins here. The views this games gives you sometimes are breathtaking. But what really impressed me was Ellie. I think she really is the bright spot of this game. She has to be smartest companion in a game since Elisabeth in Bioshock Infinite. Not only is she smart and defends you but can hold her own in a fight. The little conversations between her and Joel are amazing. Before buying this game, I always though Ellie would be this annoying innocent girl that I might have to watch over the whole game... And then she opened her mouth and l was like "Oh she's gonna be awesome!" Lol
This game really puts you in it. It feels you are living in this world. You feel Joel pain in the beginning and his happiness towards the end as the acting it's better than I've seen in some movies. Towards the middle to end, the story starts taking a very emotional series of twists and it feels so real, that is unbelievable. You will also get attached to a few other characters in the game and then all of the sudden, they are taken away in a very disturbing manner. It's like Game of Thrones with the way the get rid of other non playable characters in this world
I say the best experience is if you play it on hard. Normal seems a little too easy and survival mode seems frustrating and hard... Almost like dark souls hard. I'm about to start my third play-through and this time I will finish it on survival. I also like the way they don't give you tons of ammo. You really have to make sure every shot counts or avoid combat most of time. Every time you miss a shot, you'll be cursing at yourself. The bloaters are very fun to combat against, although I wish they would've added a bigger selection of infected. But nothing is repetitive, every area is different with different goals. The realism in this game is very high, step on broken glass or bump into something and you will give your position away. And you will not want to put the controller down.
I was extremely sad when the story ended because I spent 3 days in that world. It felt that real. This is the best game I've played. It's now in my top 3 of all times. Naughty Dog really came through. These people know how to make a game. Hopefully they keep making games like this. Although I think a sequel would ruin the game. This is a game that doesn't need one. Also watch the making of TLOU on the cinematic section. You will see why this game is so good. Thank you naughty dog and sony for giving me a unreal and one of the best gaming experiences of my life!
TLOU has been the talk of the video game world since its debut last June. I finally caved to the hype and bought it December for the PS3. My only regret is that I went six unnecessary months not experiencing this absolute masterpiece of a game.
As a testament to how much I love this game, I’m currently on my 12th playthrough in 6 months. I have pile of neglected titles waiting to be played, but I find myself returning to this world over and over again.
A word of warning: This game is not for the faint of heart or those sensitive to grittier elements in video games. There’s a lot of violence, death, blood, and language. While I found none of it to be gratuitous, it definitely is not for everyone.
For those who never played:
Gameplay: It’s different from a lot of games in the fact that the controls are what I would describe as less than precise. This design is intentional. You’re a middle-aged man struggling in a cruel world. You aren’t a Navy Seal or a super hero and the controls subtly add to that character element. I think it was a brilliant move by ND to give you an unsteady hand (which you can upgrade over time if it drives you crazy). It adds to the difficulty, the stress, and the realism. If you like running and gunning and taking down baddies like a boss, you’re going to struggle here.
Replay value: 12th playthrough, enough said.
Story/Characters: This is where the true magic is. The premise of the story is as old and worn and ‘unoriginal’ as anything out there. Pandemic outbreak, collapse of civilization, welcome to the nitty-gritty world of survival of the fittest. Honestly, how many times has that been done? Yet the story has stuck with me, or more appropriate, haunted me, long after I put down the controller. This is due to the outstanding talents of the writers, voice actors, and programmers that brought these characters to life. Joel and Ellie (and the rest) aren’t just fictional characters to me; I became emotionally invested in them over time. TLOU breathed new life into the horror/survival story done so many times before and I applaud them for it.
Graphics: Stunning. The cinematics are amazing and actual gameplay footage is hardly a noticeable transition. The character animations are top-notch. However, what really stand out to me are the environments. The atmosphere of the post-apocalyptic world hasn’t been rendered so masterfully since Half-Life 2. Creepy scrawls on the wall, blood smears across the floor, newspaper clippings begging to be deciphered, abandoned corpses left to rot, homes quickly abandoned. The environments are complemented by the periodic optional conversations you can engage in about different elements of the area. Whether you’re explaining to Ellie why people would execute military officials or telling her about a dumb teen movie poster she’s wondering about, it adds another level of depth to the entire experience.
Soundtrack: Perfect for the story. Gustavo Santaolalla has a fan for life. I listen to it all the time.
Difficulty: Easy, Normal, Hard, Survivor, and Grounded.
Personally, I think the best way to experience it is going straight to Survivor mode. It’s hard, it’s terrifying, you have no listening bonus, and you’re cowering for your life every moment. You’ll die a lot, so if you’re easily frustrated, back it down a difficulty setting. There’s no shame playing a game on a lower difficulty, despite what some gaming ‘elitists’ believe. For me, the challenge is what made it so engaging. If you’re not that type, play your way so you enjoy it more.
Grounded mode is only for the truly dedicated. Its major frustration comes from the lack of checkpoints (respawn points, whatever you want to call them). The AI is meaner, you’ll die a lot, and then you’ll die more. It’s a sibling of Dark Souls in that regard.
If you owned the PS3 version: It’s up to you whether it’s worth purchasing again. I think it’s well worth it.
Differences (graphics): It is absolutely gorgeous. No joke, I stopped and stared at a worn, plastic sheet blowing in the wind, purely in awe of how good it looked. It was beautiful on the PS3; ramp it up on steroids on the PS4.
New Additions from PS3: The biggest addition is a photo mode, which is awesome (and allows me to gawk further at the upgraded graphics). There are also some smaller elements, such as being to completely turn off the HUD or the aiming reticule on any difficulty. While not major changes, these subtle customization options really add to the experience.
Lastly, the cinematic commentaries and the Grounded: Making the Last of Us Documentary were both fascinating. The documentary gave me an additional level of respect for this creation. The commentary from Troy Ashley, and Neil also changed the way I viewed some elements of the story, adding depth and causing me to notice extra details. I loved watching them.
Left Behind DLC-awesome! Great additional story, despite its length. That’s $15 worth of content, so the actual game is $35.
Tl;dr: Go buy it! Right now! Sell your kidney if you must! It’s the best video game I’ve ever played (I’ve got 19 years of gaming to my name), finally dethroning TLoZ: Ocarina of Time after 15 years of well-earned glory. Video games are an art (ahem, Mr. Ebert) and The Last of Us is a masterpiece. In my opinion, it is one of the best works of fiction of any entertainment medium.
I've recommended this game so many times. It completely deserves it's 10/10 IGN rating. Buy it.
