Did You Know?


At PAX Prime 2013, Naughty Dog showed off enemy characters that never made it into the game. One type of enemy appeared to be bald, fanged beats with stringy fungus growing off of their backs. Other early concepts looked like generic zombies with fungi like groups scattered across their bodies. The developers felt that these iterations didn't feel like still-living infected humans, which is why they were scrapped. Another enemy that was cut from the final game is an infected elephant. It had tendrils of fungus grow from it's legs and blooming mushrooms on it's head. A scenario in the game would have had this creature chasing Joel as he desperately scrambled away. Instead the team decided early on that they wanted to have zoo animals to roam freely in the game. This led to the giraffe scene. See more »

A true masterpiece!
3 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is my first game review ever, so you can imagine how this game changed me and my way of thinking.

First let me thank the whole staff for putting this masterpiece together and most important the voice actors for doing an amazing job.

The story is possibly the best thing this game has to offer. It's 1000 times better than most movies. It made me shed tears a few times (it never happened to me before). So much drama, so much emotions, so much anger... I can't explain what I felt when the game was over and saw the ending... it really gave me a breakdown that lasted a few days (there's still something left). I don't know if it's because of how the story unfolds or because I didn't want it to end just yet or because of the music or all those things put together. Never have I felt this way about a game or its story.

Next comes the soundtrack.. Gustavo Santaolalla did an outstanding job with the guitar and the rest of the instruments. Had to buy the soundtrack. When I play the songs I remember those tough moments Joel and Ellie went through. This game's soundtrack is almost just as important as the story.

Then there's the graphics and the environment. You can see how much time and effort they put into the surroundings. Again, I've never seen any game have that much detail as the last of us.

I'm so eager to see what's in the DLC. I even bought the comics to keep my mind busy for a short while. Those explain Ellie's past a little bit. I hope they make a part 2 of this game.

I could go on for hours telling you what I liked about it so the only advice I could give you is to play the game and go through the whole story and you'll see what I mean.
