Storyline

Twenty years after a fungal infection obliterated most of the U.S. population and turned the victims into infected monstrosities, Joel is tasked with escorting Ellie to the Fireflies to help reverse engineer a cure. However, this isnt easy for either of them, since Joel has been left almost permanently bitter after the death of his daughter, and Ellie is distrusting of him. Written by targusholy

Naughty Dog's Latest Is The Finest Of The Generation 10/10

When The Last Of Us was first announced I knew it would be a cut above most games but I didn't know it would be this good! For me Naughty Dog has had a flawless track record, with Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter and Uncharted all possessing unique qualities. However, The Last Of Us manages to raise the bar set by all of these games, setting the bar for video game excellence, as we head into the next generation.

The story is an absolute masterpiece, with the best voice acting in the industry on display. It's this voice acting from Troy Baker as Joel and Ashley Johnson as Ellie, that gives this story all of its emotional weight and therefore, its momentum. Troy Baker does an excellent job of portraying a man on the edge, who's wiling to do anything to survive and to protect those that he cares about. However, it's Ashley Johnson who steals the show, perfectly portraying a badass teenager whose had to mature fast in order to survive. The relationship between these characters develops beautifully, providing you with an unparallelled sense of attachment to the characters. This relationship, is partly shaped by these two characters encounters with fellow survivors, with all the supporting cast doing a brilliant job, particularly Nolan North. Last but certainly not least, the score is by an academy award winning composer and it shows, as this is the finest soundtrack for any game and is an integral part of the story.

The gameplay is pretty similar to that of Uncharted, with refinements made to the shooting system, which ensure that all your shots register. The crafting system is excellent, giving you incentive to explore in order to better equip yourself for upcoming engagements. These engagements are unparallelled in video game history, as engagements with the infected create a real sense of fear and your ability to advance in the story, is determined by how you choose to engage enemies. Clickers and Bloaters are the toughest enemies and the freedom to choose between stealth and aggression, is much appreciated. Graphically, the game is stunning, adding that extra bit of realism to proceedings, as you get swept up in the environments. Finally, the most impressive gameplay feature is the dynamic speech. Whether it be conversations between Joel and Ellie about ice cream and whistling or Ellie telling you that you nailed an enemy, all of the dynamic speech contributes greatly to your investment in these characters, highlighting how Naughty Dog continues to innovate effectively.

Ultimately, The Last Of Us is a masterpiece and Naughty Dog should be commended for showing the world that the gaming medium can be considered art, just like the movie and TV mediums. The unprecedented voice acting, story and fear on display, all contribute to a beautiful game which opens in cinematic fashion and which ends, boldly and beautifully. The Last Of Us differentiates itself well from other story's in the over-saturated zombie genre, making it a must buy and the game of the generation.
