  • I have recently finished The Last of Us and I would like to share some thoughts on it.

    So I have a few things to say on The Last of Us.


    I really enjoyed the story (thought it was better than Uncharted). The voice acting is really strong, some of the best in video games. I also liked the way the relationship between Joel and Ellie developed throughout the game.

    I think from a technical stand point, the game is very good. What Naughty Dog have managed to with the PS3 is very impressive (for a further look at this check out this article from Digital Foundry - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/di...-tech-analysis)


    The enemies were crap, they felt generic bad guys.

    At times it felt like I was walking from one battle to another. It is a case of walk, battle, walk battle, rinse and repeat. Also, the battles themselves were just tedious, it felt like Joel was like a death machine at times, killing everything in sight.

    Another thing which drove me mad (and it's the same with Uncharted) was the respawning. I'd clear a room and be ready to move onto the next section of the game, only to find out the game would send more enemies. I found this to be tedious.

    I don't have the massive bonk-on for the game a lot of the people seem to have for it, If I was to hand this game a rating it would be 7/10.

    I really don't see it as the one of the best of this generation, far from it. I can think of a handful of games that I think are better than this (GTA4, MGS4, Red Dead Redemption, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, hell, I even enjoyed Sleeping Dogs more than this).

    I accept not everyone will share my thoughts about the game, I just wanted to share them with you.
