The Last of Us Remastered
Graphics are way better than I expected!!!
So I got the PS3 version of TLOU. Loved it. Finished the Main Story 15 times and the Left Behind story 6 Times. Now I got The Last of Us: Remastered. The 60fps and 1080p are beautifully used. Some might think, "Same game with little difference," but the clarity is so much better, believe it or not. Videos don't give it justice. You'd have to buy or rent the game (or borrow from a friend) in order to appreciate the beauty of it. The $30+ of add on content is an amazing value, since the game is $49.99. It's like you only pay $15, more or less, for the game itself. The only thing keeping me from giving the "Gameplay" a full 10 is that at some points there is a small amount of lag when controlling Joel, which I'm assuming will be fixed with an update. I went through the entire game and it didn't bother me though, just certain points when you're looking around. It's minimal, though. It doesn't plague the whole game. Also, the default controls have the "Aim & Shoot" buttons on the R2 and L2 triggers (I tried getting used to the difference, but to no avail. Thankfully they have the option for you to switch it to the R1 and L1 buttons, the PS3 version controls, which I'm too used to.). Overall, a great value, in my opinion, on an arguably perfect game. If you loved the original PS3 version, this one is definitely worth at least a look. Plus, you get to add commentary from the actors on the Cinematic moments of the game. Which, for huge fans of the game like myself, is an awesome add on. An easy 10+ rating overall (on the scale from 1-10).
A great PS4 exclusive!
If your looking for a good PS4 game then this is for you! the best part is if your friend is saying Xbox is better, tell them about this game... then watch them cry.
i love this games
i love the last of us it is a good games and my friends let me play the games for 2 hour and he say go get this game for ps4 it the best game out there for ps4 go get your cope the last of us at gamestop today
so excited i sounded like a clicker
Cant wait must have the last of us on ps4 I never had a ps3 so I could never play the last of us my friend was nice and let me play the first hour of the game. Great game I wanted it to come out for ps4 since then I started to lose hope until today I saw THE LAST OF US REMASTERED on the playstation store I screamed so loud until I sounded like a clicker. I saw what the game was capable of such as graphics animation story great game and I cant wait to see what naughty dog can do on the ps4.
very good. great game all in all
I was overall very impressed with it. The only disappointing thing is. Not very many weapons. Other than that a great game. Would not mind a sequal of some type
An absolute masterpiece.
Unfortunately, I never owned a PS3. I was always on Xbox 360, and didn't ever bother to get a PS3. But, I got the PS4 right when it came out. When this game came out for PS4, I didn't get it right away. Something told me not to get it because I didn't wanna waste $50 and be disappointed. But I got this game 4 days ago, and I already have the main story beat, and Left Behind beat. This game was absolutely astonishing and addicting. There is literally nothing wrong with this game. The soundtrack is BEAUTIFUL, the controls are phenomenal, the voice acting and acting in general is just absolutely perfect. The story is the greatest story I've ever played, and it feels like you're playing a movie, and you love it. No boring cut scenes, no boring story missions, nothing about this game is bad. I have never been so attached to characters in my life. I RECOMMEND THIS GAME TO ANYBODY!
The Best of Us
This game is probably one of the best strict linear based RPG game I have ever played. The character chemistry, development, and human experience is written by a true writer. Those in charge of plot development and character development not only hit their mark but really blew any expectations out of the water. I've been playing games for over 20 years and there hasn't been a game that plays so fluidly and seamlessly like "The Last of Us." Past the writing, the graphics are amazing. The fact the Joel's facial expression changes depending on who he's "boosting" is both amazing and relieving... seriously, I'm so relieved to see a game fulfill all my expectations. Sure, things do seem a bit coincidental as far as finding nail bombs in random places, but everything else is so realistic and believable I'm not sitting there scoffing and thinking, "this could never happen" or "that doesn't make any sense." I can't wait for more that Sony Computer Ent. America has to offer... hopefully a number 2.
Great, but not amazing.
The game is great looking, the gameplay is fun, and the sounds the way the enviroment sounds is simply amazing. The sound system works better with the sony headset since you get the better audio modes. However it might be just my personal preference, but the whole gameplay seemed kind of always be the same, really repetitive. Granted the game is amazing I love the way you have to switch weapons, how crafting works in real time is a great edition, and the characters are simply amazing and you do care about them, just the combat seemed kinda always the same to me. It is a great game though and I would recommend it, I think i just got thrown into the hype since what I heard of the game was only good things, it was my first ps4 game, the multiplayer is really fun for me, great melee combat system and the ranged combat is simple nothing really great or bad from that perspective, think it ads a great deal of thinking when deciding to either use a brick to throw it at a wall to distract your enemies or to use it for up close to deal a strong first hit.
Best storyline since Metal Gear Solid 4!!!
I have to say that I had my doubts with this game at first. I mean a game about the undead with a good story and graphics.... I was given this game by my wife and I was immediately hooked. Graphics are great, even though I haven't played the PS3 version of the game. I can't imagine that the PS3 engine could bring to life the clarity that the PS4 brings to the game. The storyline is the best that I have seen since Metal Gear Solid series. Without giving away any spoilers, you will definitely have to think your way around the game. Which is a good thing!! I can't wait to finish the game and play it on it's hardest level, which does give it replay value. Overall I would recommend this game to the casual gamer to the hardcore gamer. It has something for everyone to enjoy. Very pleased to have played this game. I would have to say at this point in time (12/12/14), it is the best game for the Playstation 4! Definitely a must buy, you won't be disappointed!!!!
About 1 year later...
And I'm still enjoying this game. I've decided that I want to try beat this game 100% and get the platinum trophy so I'm replaying the story (for the fifth time) to collect everything. The Last of Us: Remastered has lasting appeal and great replay value. In between playing the story, I take a break through online multiplayer, which I love equally well. The online multiplayer is surprisingly balanced and very entertaining and I've probably clocked in about 100 hours already. However, coming back to the story, it is so well written and the character development is well drawn out. At first, the main characters Joel and Ellie don't give a dam about each other. But, by the end of their journey, they've bonded into a close father-daughter relationship. While the Zombies theme is overdone these days, The Last of Us: Remastered actually has a hidden message: The Zombies aren't the true threat but, rather, the other human beings, who want to deceive you and take your stuff, are truly deadly. People might say that the story is overhyped, but it deserves all the credit it's been given. I'm playing the story for the 5th time on "Survivor" difficulty (the hardest difficulty in the original game) and I'm still enjoying the dialogue, exploration, and combat. It's really lucky that they are now giving away this game with new Playstation 4 consoles so more people can try this gem for no extra cost :)
