The Last of Us Part II review
Exceptional
by Devon

I know some people hate this, but I think if the first story meant something to you, this story will mean even more if you get past the antiquated beliefs people are using as weapons against this game. It doesn’t give you what you want, but it gives you what is DESERVED. No one makes it out of this game unchanged, and it often means they have to experience the worst thing possible. It’s raw, brutal, and overwhelming, but also beautiful, intimate, and haunting. Without a sequel, the first game was complete, but this game fundamentally alters the first game, and without this chapter, it now feels like only part of the story. It’s incredible, I truly do not understand how fans of the first game can not appreciate the story being told here.

Great review. I agree with everything you've said. The hate targeted towards this game is just unfair. It may not be a masterpiece in everyone's mind, however to give this game a 0 out of 10 is just stupid. It deserves way more credit than that.

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.

best game
I borrowed it from a friend, and it blew my mind! I liked the first part, but this one’s definitely now in my top ten all time favourites 👌🏻

Incredible narrative with emotional moments that make this game my favourite of ALL TIME.  
A sequel that isn't just fan service. It took some bold risks, I know it didn't pay off for some but for me it for sure did.
