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

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.
