Excerpt: In an interesting approach to a top-down (above-view) game, The Last Guy has adopted a very Google Maps-styled interface. The levels you play in are actual cities and the maps look like they may well have started as satellite imagery, then been cleaned up a bit. This map interface allows you to zoom in or out to your choice of five different levels, from a closeup on your local area out to a view that shows the entire map of the current city.
Conclusion: It looks simple, it sounds simple, but The Last Guy's simplicity is also its greatest strength. Old-school meets HD and the result is a game that plays like the good ol' days yet doesn't feel especially antiquated on a next-gen system.
