So, I just finished The Last of us and … well, I have to say that it must be one of the worst and most uncreative games I have ever played. I’ve read that it has won awards and that it is seen as a really great game but I can’t for the life of me see how the game would even come close? I even have to say that even Dragon Age 2 is way better and oh how I complained on that game.
To start off this review, the game lack deep/proper story, choices, emotion and back story to all the characters. What have Joel and Tess been doing for the last 20 years? What kind of relationship did they have? What went down between Joel and his brother?
The fact that the characters are so emotionless around the death of people and that the game leave loose ends everywhere is another good reason to call this a bad game. Also the ending have to be one of the most idiotic, selfish and bullshit endings I’ve seen in a game but I won’t spoil for those that still wants to try it, not that it is worth it at all.
The fact that they are attacked by either clickers, bloaters, runners, or “evil hunters” aka humans, who truly have the need to kill them for whatever reason, every step of the way just makes the game so much worse, and how that makes a good game will always be beyond me. Battling against only 4 kinds of enemies makes the game even more repetitive. The game isn’t even good for exploration even tho the world around them looks large and beautiful.
17 hours later of meaningless killing and almost only one-liner cut scenes from each character just made me so disappointed. The only things that this game have going for itself is the gore and the graphics. I have nothing more to say…
