Action (Survival Horror)


The story takes place 20 years after a pandemic wiped out most of the human race. Now the infected attack like rabid animals while roving survivors do everything they can to survive. Joel, a hardened veteran is given a mission to escort a young girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone. Yet what starts off a seemingly easy task becomes a brutal trek across the ruined U.S. Resources are scarce, choices you make will determine your path, adaptive AI molds you your playing style and "Dynamic Stealth" opportunities all make this third-person oriented game a genre-defining video game experience.

"The Last Of Us"

The Last Of Us is basically an interactive movie that plays like Resident Evil done in the style of Uncharted with a dash of Ico/Enslaved in that you have to escort a defenceless partner through hostile territory. Add some RPG elements in how you can search the environment for resources to upgrade your equipment and you have a nicely cinematic experience with enough depth to keep adventure junkies happy. Perhaps a little too-stealth based for my tastes but a top-notch title nonetheless.

This Is How a Generation Should End

One of my most anticipated games of year, The Last of Us lived up to the massive hype surrounding it. Though it may fall just short of being perfect - I can say with certainty it is my favorite Sony exclusive on the PS3 and any fan of Survival Horror, or anyone who wants a game that is just as focused on the characters and story as the action, should definitely check this out. Even if the next generation of systems hasn't got my attention - at least I know that Sony went out with a bang by saving this gem until the end.

Presentation: Gorgeous - the quality is some of the best I have seen in both the character design and the levels. This takes place in a world where fungus-infested humans have decimated the population (zombie-styles) and the looks is perfect. Vegetation has taken over s...

A Fantastic PS3 Exclusive

The Last of Us is stunningly beautiful game with a infatuating story that keeps you going. This PS3 exclusive is one of the best games on the console and is a must play for those who enjoy zombie apocalypse adventures.

The best part of this game is the story. I won't go into too much detail to spoil anything. At the beginning of the game you get to experience the initial outbreak of the zombie virus that takes down civilization. After this intense opening sequence, you are sent forward 20 years and you play as a man named Joel. Joel is pretty much alone and in total survival mode, caring only about himself. After he has his weapons stolen, he must make a deal with the fireflies, a mysterious group of people that you don't know whether you should like or hate them, to get them bac...

I don;t know about any one else but I think this game looks pretty sweet so far. Naughty Dog has not done me wrong yet so I will be buying this one Day 1 I think.
