Storyline

    The population has been decimated. The United States government has collapsed long ago. Twenty years after the outbreak, abandoned cities are slowly reclaimed by nature. Roaming bands of survivors are killing each other for food, weapons, or whatever they can get their hands on.

    Joel, a ruthless survivor with few moral lines left to cross, lives in one of the last remaining Quarantine Zones. These walled-off, oppressive cities are run by what’s left of the military. Despite the strict martial law, Joel operates in the black market of the city, smuggling contraband for the right price.

    Joel is asked by a dying friend to look after Ellie, a fourteen-year-old girl with courage beyond her years. What starts out as a simple job to deliver Ellie to another Quarantine Zone, soon transforms into a profound journey that will forever change Joel and Ellie.

    As they trek across a post-pandemic United States, Joel and Ellie will encounter different factions of survivors that have each found a unique way of dealing with the infected humans, the lack of supplies, and the threat of other survivors. As Joel and Ellie struggle to persevere, they must learn to trust each other and work together in order to survive the realities of this new world.

    At its core, The Last of Us is about the bond that forms between Joel and Ellie--it is the story of love, loyalty and redemption.

    Key Features

      • Become the hunter and the hunted in a brutal post-pandemic world. Play as Joel, a ruthless survivor, who is paired with Ellie, a brave young teenage girl, as they work together to endure a dangerous trek across a familiar, yet post-pandemic United States.
      • Intense character-driven narrative featuring a cast of resonant characters that take you on a rich, emotional journey via Naughty Dog’s award-winning cinematic storytelling, performance capture, and high-production values.
      • Explore a decimated, overgrown America reclaimed by nature, marked with remnants of human civilization juxtaposed against beautiful, lush environments, delivered by realistic and stunning graphics.
      • Strategize how to survive enemy encounters as the Balance of Power AI system continuously adapts to whether Joel or the enemies gain the upper hand. Quickly maneuver to survive encounters as enemies will change their behavior based on what weapon they see Joel holding, how many of them are left alive, and whether the player has managed to surprise them.
      • Learn how to survive day-by-day: scavenge for vital resources, craft weaponry out of environmental objects, and compete with other survivors for limited supplies and ammo.

By John Clayton III VINE VOICE

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Short version: It's not just Uncharted With Zombies, but it does have great graphics, amazing sound design, wonderful story, brilliantly sedate gameplay that explodes in bursts of fighting, and at least twice during it I was wondering why I need to upgrade to the next generation of console at all.
If you have a PS3, buy it immediately. If you own an Xbox and only came here to write a hatchet review to drag down the average score of a PS3 exclusive, then by all means batter the keys with your fists as quickly as possible and get it out of your system so you can sleep at night again - and then BUY A PS3 JUST TO PLAY IT, because it is so good it redeems both the aging 3d platformer game, and the utterly tired zombie genre.

Long version: The Last of Us initially looks like an old VHS copy of a 1980s post-apocalyptic movie shot in Italy and dubbed badly with ludicrous Noo Yawk accents, especially if you turn the contrast and colour on your tv way up while playing, but some of the scenery is impressively inventive in recasting streets as flooded water puzzles and offices as waterfalls.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last of Us 17 Jun 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game's been out since June 14th and there's already 76 reviews on Amazon.co.uk (edit, now well above 200!), as well as all the critic reviews giving the game high praise, so I really don't need to tell you how great this game is. BUT! I'm going to do it anyway, because I want to.

Let's just say you have no idea what The Last of Us is. Okay, here's a brief description. You are Joel. You meet Ellie, a 14 year old girl. You have to get Ellie from A to B (B is far away). And humankind has been infected by a virus that essentially turns people into zombie like creatures of varying zombieness. And the world has gone to pot and lots of people are acting exactly how every end-of-the-world movie tells you they'd act - like law doesn't apply to them. Anything else is spoilers, and you really don't want that.

Now, on a personal level, while graphics can make a game even better, the fact is I will take a game with cruddy graphics but stellar gameplay over a game that looks incredible but plays like Ali Dia (retro football joke for you there). However, with The Last of Us, despite everything else that is great about it (which I'll go into in a bit, be patient), I feel the graphics need special mention. Well, I say graphics, the graphics are spectacular, but it's the pure attention to detail that got me stopping in my tracks to just take in the surroundings throughout my playthrough. For example, I went into one abandoned house and just took in all the scenery - the pictures on the wall of family members, the bespoke design of the wallpaper (which had started to sag due to damp and neglect), the rucksacks on a hanger. Children's drawings stuck to the fridge. The outside scenery is just as impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Naughty Dog's finest moment 2 Mar 2014
By A2Y
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard

You play as Joel, a hardened survivor of a pandemic that has rampaged across America for over 20 years. Infectious spores have turned regular humans into psychotic freaks. Containment groups patrol the streets and keep the viral outbreak controlled with a heavy hand. Joel's survival skills come in handy, as he is requested to transport Ellie, a valuable girl, to the resistance movement that opposes the nationwide control. From here Joel and Ellie form an unbreakable bond throughout their journey together.

Naughty Dog masterfully craft the inner troubles of Joel and the defiant nature to Ellie to utmost perfection. This characterisation is as real as it gets. Yes, it's the whole post-apocalyptic setting all over again. However, players are guided away from that and taken on a captivating personal journey.

G R A P H I C S & S O U N D
The Last Of Us is without doubt the PS3s best looking title. There is so much diversity when it comes to the environments. The pandemic has completely beaten the life out of small towns and city quarters, allowing nature to spread out of control and pave the way for chaos. Quarantine zones, control posts and crumbled city blocks paint a vivid picture of the pandemic. No expense has been spared with the detail - skyscrapers have toppled into one another, entire highways have collapsed and numerous districts have been abandoned.

Lighting is spectacular as it shimmers off of surfaces, casts defined shadows and washes over a number of expansive environments. The character models and performances of Joel and Ellie are sublime, pushing the authenticity of their on-screen presence. The infected are not your run-of-the-mill zombie types, further exemplified by the intensity of their movements and lust for carnage.
