GameSpot
28 July 2014
  • Summary: What makes life worth living? The Last of Us tries to answer that question by giving us a vision of a world that makes no room for people to really live their lives anymore. In this post-pandemic military-ruled society, the most anyone can hope for is merely to survive.
  • Pros: Tells a beautifully written, beautifully acted story, Intense, harrowing combat, Excellent pacing, Nice visual enhancements over original release, Includes the exceptional Left Behind story DLC and a few new features
  • Cons: Friendly AI behavior can still be jarring at times

The Last of Us Review

Hardcore Shooter
16 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The Last of Us comes into existence with merit before dropping into familiar pitfalls. It is this generation’s representative: Expensive and glossy AAA gaming that draws itself into marketing through bloodshed whether it serves the narrative or not.
  • Pros: Alluring production value – Outstanding voice work – grim ambiguous ending - Apocalypse rendered without compromise
  • Cons: Needless multiplayer/online pass – violence trumps narrative – storytelling cliches

  • Excerpt: Naughty Dog has managed to create a beautiful story within something as dark as a zombie apocalypse with The Last of Us . The game has you coming to terms with your own mortality and makes you second-guess the people you would trust your own life with during such a bleak time.

One unforgettable character proves humanity is worth saving in the bleak and brutal The Last of Us.

GameSpot

  • Pros: Ellie is immediately likable and exhibits poignant growth, Tense combat encounters with plenty of flexibility, Crafting system demands environmental investigation, Slow-paced, rewarding competitive multiplayer, Excellent sound design and moving score
  • Cons: Supporting characters are rarely sympathetic, Combat contains too many immersion-breaking exploits

The Last Of Us: Left Behind review – Ellie adventure

Metro
14 February 2014
  • Summary: Another masterful mix of interactive story and brutal action, and which despite the short running time still packs an emotional punch.
  • Pros: The quality of storytelling is second to none, with no over reliance on cut scenes and a great script. Action holds up very well and the graphics are amazing.
  • Cons: Short and expensive. No new gameplay elements. Dialogue and voice-acting doesn’t always match with the supposed ages of the characters.

Review: The Last Of Us Left Behind is poignant but paltry

CVG
13 February 2014
  • Summary: The ending of The Last Of Us was perfect. If you haven't played it, please close the browser and do so now. If you have, you'll know what I'm talking about.
  • Pros: Genuinely moving, More from Ellie and Joel (kinda)
  • Cons: Narrative is surplus to requirements, Costly for something so brief
