Joel, a violent survivor, is hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone, but what starts as a small job soon transforms into a brutal journey across the U.S. Joel and Ellie with their backs against the wall in The Last of Us Diverse Survival-Action gameplay in which story development and the bond between characters is choice dependent. Gameplay The Last of Us is a third-person Survival-Action game that utilizes choices in gameplay action to develop the game storyline, as well as the relationship between the two main characters, Joel and Ellie. The game features a combination of combat, exploration, stealth and platforming game mechanics. Although Joel and Ellie are both residents of a post-apocalyptic world, they have had different experiences that affect the way they see the world around them, and feel about what they see and do. Joel had a life before the pandemic, while the world of the pandemic is all that Ellie has ever known. As part of Joel's job to smuggle Ellie out of the quarantine zone, players have to make choices in how they deal with enemies, which include, roving gangs of human scavengers not unlike themselves, military elements and infected civilians. Player also have opportunity to together interact with elements of the world around them, which helps to build the bond between Joel and Ellie. Resources in the game are


scarce, making overwhelming use of firepower unlikely and unwise in conflicts, and resource gathering missions. In addition, most other residents of the ruined world that are encountered are just trying to survive - blurring the line between good guys and bad guys.

Reviews Harken back to a great book you've consumed, mesmerized by the story, intent on finding out the characters' fates. Yet, in so doing you sadly realized fates led to closure and that you would have to let go of that world. That experience was the Last of Us for me. Even several days after finishing the game, I think about that world and the beautifully crafted characters. I also can't stop thinking about the game's implications for the world in which we live. Without spoiling too much, I will just say that the game goes to dark and desolate places, which compels you to think about the nature of humankind, probably along the lines of


Heart of Darkness (Apocalypse Now) or No Country for Old Men. The social issues explored within this game could easily provide some intellectual fodder for a college humanities course. The game itself has myriad standout traits. For one, the voice-acting and facial work are astounding. Second, the environments are beautifully crafted and I felt extremely immersed in a post-apocalyptic world. I could go on and on about other strong features, but I'll just finish by saying that the story was masterful. In no other video game I've played in my 30 years of doing so have I experienced such strong writing. The experience is like when you've seen a really great movie and only days later it hits you, 'Ohhhhhhhh, that was what she meant by...' and you realize how deftly and subtly the writers scripted each element. Now, I've read criticism of the game and I would like to address my take on some of those issues. Some folks complain that some elements were unrealistic in a game that obviously took great care to provide as much realism as possible. For instance, your allies will hide in view of the enemy and yet the enemy is not alerted by their presence. I've also read that people think the AI is not the brightest. The thrust of those types of complaints is that it takes one out of the immersion. Ok, fair enough, but I truly feel like such arguments are nitpicky and only mentioned because the game approaches near perfection otherwise. As well, some folks have complained about some glitches, such as getting trapped or the dreaded "black screen" during videos. Those are indeed valid concerns and took just a tad of the polish off an otherwise brilliant experience. My black screen experience occurred during the very last movie, but while I was upset, I was so moved by the rest of the game that I was able to move one and check it out on Youtube. One last criticism I would like to pass on is that of the linearity of the game, I think comparing it to the likes of Grand Theft Auto or Red Dead Redemption (RDR). I suppose a more open world would have been nice, but I truly think it could have taken away from the game's quality. In my opinion, in the Last of Us you're supposed to experience the story of Joel and Ellie from a third-person point-of-view, not actually "become" those characters as you would in RDR. That separation between self and character might have been blurred, had Last of Us introduced too many elements of openness. That being said,


there is indeed an amazing game to be made that incorporates the Last of Us world with a more open, non-linear scheme. All in all, while the game is not perfect, I can't think of one game that is. I'll just end by saying that this is one of the best video games I've ever experienced... ================================================== This game

is a must for ps3 owners, great single player expirience,

recommended to play it on survivor settings. The multiplayer is also amazing, great new way to increase your reputation, have in mind that you will need a team and a headset..
