Content Rating: Mature

Summary

The game features a combination of combat, exploration, stealth, and platforming game mechanics. Although Joel and Ellie are both residents of a post-apocalyptic world, they have had different experiences that affect the way they see the world around them, and feel about what they see and do. Joel had a life before the pandemic, while the world of the pandemic is all that Ellie has ever known. As part of Joel's job to smuggle Ellie out of the quarantine zone, players have to make choices in how they deal with enemies, which include, roving gangs of human scavengers not unlike themselves, military elements and infected civilians.

From the slow burn of the intricate opening hours that unfold into something reflecting the qualities of the best stories -- heart-aching, tense, but also humane and funny – and also the best games, where it punishes foolhardy action, and rewarding both quick thinking and learning with its ever-changing scenarios. The Last of Us shows us that the future of games need not be jarring messes of complexity with a codependency on apps, a horde mode; something that plays well, makes you think, and keeps you playing to the end is without a doubt worth taking in.

Make no mistake, this is not the feel-good kind of adventure that Naughty Dog is known for. The few lighthearted moments only counterpoint those that become progressively grimmer as the story goes on. The ups and downs are exhausting, and by the end I felt more that I had survived the game than completed it...The Last of Us is not a cheerful story, but it's a damned good one.
