This review is from: The Last of Us - PlayStation 3 (Video Game)
This game had a lot of hype coming to its release and for good reason. One of the best games I have ever played! The combat, the relationships with the characters, the voice acting, the graphics, everything is just spot on. Itl grab at your heart strings too!
You follow a man named Joel who has had his life torn apart(and everyone elses) due to A virus that affects humans in the brain. From there you will explore and scavenge just to get by. Observing how the world has changed and just how desperate people have become to survive in this new and dangerous world. You'll eventually meet a young girl named Ellie, in which you are tasked with taking her to a location. Why and where i'll let you discover. You'll see slowly how the chemistry builds between them and how Joel evolves from reluctant care taker to over-bearing and worried about Ellie's every move. The way the characters talk and react to each other really is special. You'll meet fellow travelers, both friend and foe, on your journey but as to which they may be..well, you'll see...
The Last of Us really is a touching game both emotionally and psychologically. If ever there were a game worth $60 retail, this is it.

+Variety of combatants
