Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Of Us (PS3) (Video Game)
I'm not a hardcore gamer, being rather old (fifty cough), and have mainly settled for Gran Turismo and various Tiger Woods golf games over the last 10 years. So this was something different for me.
Ambitiously I started the game on hard level (single player mode), and this has proved quite challenging at times. But the entertainment level is high and the graphics are the best I've seen on a PS3. The story is quite closely related to "I Am Legend" and keeps you guessing as to what and where you'll be doing thing next. The violence is not for young children, and pretty graphic at times, but in the context of the story its all justifiable (for me anyway).
My only real criticism is that there isn't a big world out there to explore like in Red Dead Redemption. Its a pretty linear game, but for a slow learner like myself that doesn't really matter as its going to take me so long to get through it anyway, I don't need to be distracted by a whole city.
Yep the hype was really justified!
