Finally finished the game. Extremely happy with it how it turned out. Didn't face any bugs or glitches at all. Ran smoothly and beautifully so i feel sorry for those who are facing these.
The story and ending was not always predictable to me. I was thinking maybe they'll do some crazy stuff like Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. I did feel very uncomfortable towards the end and how it plays out. I attribute it to the powerful narrative and emotion the game induces.
Good job on the review Jay. I have a little problem with you taking points away because the multiplayer doesn't seem sustainable to you. It is like taking points away from Call of Duty for now liking Zombies mode. I respect that though since i was critical of Battlefield 3's single player component even when no one cares about it.
My views on the game match those of Jim Sterling. Yea him. He ended his review like this.
"There is more to The Last of Us than just combat and "emotional" story tropes. To touch on its setpiece moments, to detail its beautiful changes in pace, would be to spoil too much. It cannot be said enough, however, that Naughty Dog's new best creation is complete, and when I say complete, I mean it to pay the highest of compliments. I do not want more from The Last of Us: I do not need more. As the last line was uttered and the credits ushered in the close, I was done. The Last of Us had achieved everything it needed to achieve in order to provide me with everything I wanted.
And it ended perfectly. " Jim Sterling - Destructoid.
