The Last of Us Remastered
Summary: The Last of Us Remastered is according to man critics still a good game, but that its improvements from its original PS3 release are minimal so it should be for those who either haven't played the game before or are happy to play pretty much the same game again but on the PS4
Top Critic Average
With The Last of Us: Remastered, PlayStation 3's best game just became PlayStation 4's, too.
Still a stunning achievement in both storytelling and third person adventure, and although this is the definitive version the differences are still minor.
The Last of Us remains a must-play, genre-defining action survival game, and the Remastered version brings with it plentiful tweaks and additional content that make it well worth the asking price.
The punishing world dares you to press on, and the story is an emotional punch to the gut. In short, this is one of the best video games ever made
The Last of Us Remastered is a spruced-up edition of one of the most well-crafted action adventure games of the last console generation.
Within the zombie clichés lies a lovely, moving story about a relationship between two desperate people.
There's not really enough distance between the PS3 version of The Last of Us and this new Remaster to make it worth double-dipping, unless you're simply that fixated on counting lines of resolution. If you missed out the first time around, though, you really shouldn't let it slip past again. While it often works better as a movie than a game, it still stands at the state of the art. And the writing is good enough to enjoy even if you hate zombie genre fiction (like I do). The Last of Us is about refinement, not innovation, and this version takes the art of refinement another step forward.
People love scores, the score here isn't changing.
The Last of Us Remastered is as brilliant as ever and is a must-buy for any PS4 owner.
The best game on PlayStation 3 is now the best game on PlayStation 4. Despite some decent titles on Sony's new machine, you can't deny the quality of Naughty Dog's masterpiece. Even the staunchest of advocates that want original experiences on their new console will struggle to find much wrong with The Last of Us. Truly magical.
