Game Over Online 10/10
Worth Playing 9.3/10It effectively closes out this generation on a high note while simultaneously raising expectations for gaming storylines and their presentation in the next console generation
4Players.de 9.2/10The Last of Us is a must-play title for any PS3 owner who's not squeamish about violence and depressing subject matter. It has flaws, but they don't detract from the overall experience, and at worst, the game could use a little more interaction.
Atomic Gamer 9.0/10
GameFront 8/10With a well-thought-out mythos, a mildly original take on the zombie survival game that relies more on superb execution and storytelling than innovative mechanics, acting that's so good we actually see character development happen without even words being spoken, and Naughty Dog's impressive engine and top-notch production values, it all comes together to make for a wonderful reminder that not all big-budget action games need to be measured in headshots-per-minute.
Famitsu 38/40Despite its major victories and steps forward in storytelling, many of those same annoying video game conventions — the demand for action and high body counts, the lack of truly engaging and innovative play mechanics — continue to pull games like The Last of Us down toward the lowest common denominator.
Reviews are still pouring in for this one. I think it will finally settle around 95-96 with 80-90 reviews.The Last of Us (PS3) – 10/9/10/9 [38/40]
