The Last Of Us Remastered review
by pizzammure

7/10

I understand why at the time this game came out it was considered a masterpiece, but we are already in 2020, and as I only had a chance to play this game now, 7 years after its release, of course it was not as brilliant for me as it was for many others. What saves this game is the story, because it's really good, I loved it - The soundtrack and acting are fantastic. My problem, like many people, is the gameplay: It starts out interesting (and it's always super realistic) but over time it gets boring, because all the gameplay moments are very similar (either about defeating a gang or about escaping from clickers and other infected). Of course, there are many times when it is good to just look at the world around us and see nature blooming, but honestly, i was half the game and every time I realized I had to run or kill someone i just thought "oh shit, here we go again " - sometimes I wanted to skip the gameplay just to move on to the cutscenes, but I know it wouldn't have the same impact. A good game, but a little bit overrated.

The Last Of Us was fantastic. My favourite linear game of this generation. With all the large open world games out there (which I often love) it was refreshing to play such a polished linear game. Right from the opening scene the tone and feel of this game is exactly what it aims for. The feeling of the characters and enemies is incredibly well done. The best part about this game is it’s story. I thought about the ending for weeks after beating it. The ending gave it the extremely rare second plus.

Final Score: A++
Wow. I have heard nothing but stellar reviews for the game since it came out in 2013, and even more so for the Remastered edition on PS4, but I had never gotten around to playing it until today. I started playing the game at around 10:00 this morning and didn't realize until 10:00 at night that I was STILL playing. This game had me completely engrossed from beginning to end. Everything, from the graphics to the game play to the characters and their relationships absolutely blew me away! 10/10 God Damn!

Amazing narrative with amazing characters
Amazing example of story telling and how games can deliver emotion in a way like no other medium can.  I finished it in one sitting and it changed me. 

My one complaint is that other than the storytelling, the gameplay is lacking.  It doesn't take advantage of the fact that it is in a game and doesn't use that classic feeling of playing / actually being the characters in a story.  It feels like a less involved uncharted.  

Story wise however, this game delivers one of the most satisfying and well made stories ever, with an interesting setting and phenomenal characters and voice work.  

8.5/10

The experience of interacting with Joel and Ellie's journey is one of the most gripping aspects of this masterpiece.

i love depressing post apocalyptic narratives that sprinkle in little glimmers of hope!! when you're lost in the darkness... look for the light
I really loved this game. The story, the gameplay and the graphics are all on point. This game made me feel like I was in there, and gave me the right feels at the right moment. I think this game is perfect in its own way.

This is what I direct people to when I want to show them an example of a game with a well written, deep story with fantastic characters. This isn't your typical game with glorified violence and a story that's used as an excuse for gameplay. This is a mature story that brought me through an emotional rollercoaster.
Gameplay is fine, it's satisfying to play and allows space for the story to shine.
It has well-written dialogue and characters. 
The story is great at taking the characters through a self-reflective journey for them.
The soundtrack is fantastic, having a very quiet tone that embraces the zombie genre.

In general, this game still holds up as one of the best story driven games to date.

10/10 A classic.
