The Last of Us Part II review
Exceptional
by blanket

The first two hours were the best gaming experience of my life. Awesome vibes, everything goes perfectly fine and I think to myself ''alright, this is it, this is the peak of gaming industry''. Then it all goes to sh*t in one moment. Don't get me wrong, it's not like it's bad, but the whole story becomes so negative, anxious, depressing. The problem is that this doesn't change through the entire game and when it looks like it might get little bit happier, it all goes to sh*t again. Even the ending gives you such a wrong feeling, like there's something wrong and you can't even really tell why. There's literally not a single positive thing about the story. I guess it tries to show you the reality of post-apocalyptic world and I respect Naughty Dog for what they tried. It was risky shot and people are now hating on them.


Story aside, Naughty Dog as always raised the bar when it comes to graphics. Even on a 7 years old console the game looks just phenomenal.

Gameplay basically stayed the same, they just added few improvements, but if you are like me fan of stealth combined with action and exploring, there's nothing you can complain about.

Soundtrack is amazing.

The only thing I can really grumble about are these trailers. Why the hell would you bait us like that? This just wasn't fair and whoever came up with it should slap himself and step on a lego.

No game, movie or book ever had such a huge emotional impact on me. I feel like I bought an amazing game together with anxious and sadness. It's really well written and it has a strong message. I just don't feel like this is anyhow close to what I truly wanted or expected, but I take it as it is.

8.5/10

Graphism excellent, ost too. Gameplay meh at least u can personalize it. Ever fell tension cause u dont have amo in a resident evil, guess what just turn the option increase loot. The story is certainly the worst part of it, with a scenario who try so much to subvert expectation than it doesnt make any sens and stupid forgetballe character who are stupid af. Just one exemple, u kill somebody in front of his friend they say to u i will kill u what to do ? leave and forget a good night will certainly change his mind. Also they have change the first one in the flashback guess they need consistency at some point

This game is the best thing happened to me in 2020. It screws open-world and multi-ending products just delivering a masterpiece story in a mind blowing way.

Jogos em sua maior parte tendem a focar em 2 quesito: diversão e entretenimento. TLOU part 2 por mais que seja entretenimento de alta qualidade, não busca sua diversão e isso o torna o melhor jogo de 2020 e provavelmente um dos jogos mais corajosos já feitos.

 Games for the most part tend to focus on two aspects: fun and entertainment. TLOU part 2 no matter how high quality entertainment is, it does not seek your enjoyment and that makes it the best game of 2020 and probably one of the most courageous games ever made.
Anyone realizes that this has maybe the best graphics of any game ever, but the story is controversial. I loved it, it was so original and I never knew what to expect. They made me understand both Abbey's and Ellie's views and side and that was wonderfully done. People who hate it do so because they are emotionally attached to Joel and hate Abbey for that at the beginning, but if you just think about it Ellie and Joel are probably worse people than Abbey. Still I think both of them have flaws and that is what the game tries to tell you. 

Further are the factions in the game set up beautifully and you can, again, feel for all of them.

No one is perfect, and revenge is kind of pointless. That is what this game tells you and it does that well. 
The first Last of Us was one of my favorite games of all time. TLOU2 sas Visually incredible, great mechanics. However, the writer for the story and characters went extremely far out of their way to make everything full blown SJW(in exchange for making less seemingly realistic situations) and dragged everything out more than it needed to be. I was excited in the beginning, by the end I was begging for it to end.
