The Last of Us Part 1 is a masterpiece, blending intense action, emotional storytelling, and stunning visuals. Its post-apocalyptic world feels hauntingly real, with memorable characters and morally complex decisions. The gameplay is gripping, and the bond between protagonists Joel and Ellie is deeply moving. A must-play experience.

Exceptional 10/10. PC maxed out graphics. Story telling, the maturity level, the pacing... all perfectly done. This game is a masterpiece *chef's kiss*.
Man... this game hits you hard. I was not expecting such a deep plot.

The character's development is really impressive. The script uses all elements of cinema and gaming to reach its point. Also, the improved facial expressions due to its new engine elevate the details expressed by the acting. Obviously, it won't matter if the overall direction is not that good. I loved the dialog and was really into it. Feel so real that everything looks unclear - in a surprising way.

The graphics are amazing. I was getting impressed almost every time, due to the art direction in the streets or the expressions. Water, grass, sky, and textures, and more aligned with the audio design, adding a lot to the atmosphere factor.

The gameplay could be a little better since the dual sense controller's sensitivity was a little slow. But I liked the challenge overall since you must learn how to be stealthy to mitigate ammo.

Anyway, I highly recommend it. But be aware. The PC port is not good right now.

Concise Review:
There is nothing else that needs to be said about TLOU. It’s incredible. This version is the clear best way to play. I still wish they spent this time making a new IP rather than a third iteration of TLOU but fuck it, it’s one of the best games ever.

Journal:

I tried to hold off on buying this as long as I could and I made it until the night before it’s released… I blame my Flex Friday. 100$ after tax was fucking ridiculous. I hate the principle of buying this game. But fuck I am excited to play it. Only played TLOU once about 5 years ago. Let’s fucking go!

I love this game. It’s so good. The detail is incredible. The graphics, lighting and environments are incredible. The voice acting and writing is better than a lot of television. I love the feel of the gameplay. The only way I’d say this game feels dated is gameplay is simple. It feels great. But it is simple.

Sam and Henry conclusion is so good. My jaw dropped. I forgot it happened like that. Those cutscenes were top quality visuals. 

The genius behind the Ellie missions is right out the gate they give you lots of combat and a new rifle that’s really good. Rather than missing playing as Joel they are some of the best missions in terms of gameplay.

That scene where Joel tortured the guys for info and them kills them after. Oof. Great cutscene.

Beat it. The whole game is great. I don’t think there are any slow parts. But the ending is what catapults this game into the A++. It’s perfect. The brutality. The final line of Joel lying to Ellie. Oh man. I absolutely love it. Without the ending it’s still a top tier game, but it isn’t a god tier game. I hope the TV show can pull off the same emption that the game does.

Final Score: A++
