Summary

A thrilling, cinematic, movie-like action-adventure with the best videogame pairing ever conceived.

We like

  • Great characters and brilliant story that takes you on a journey where you never know what's going to happen next.
  • From the sublime visuals and gripping cut-scenes to the great audio work, this is a top-notch production.
  • Close-quarter combat is brutally intense and thrilling. It never gets boring blasting the head clean off an Infected.

We dislike

  • Dull and repetitive environmental puzzles. Ladders, planks and make-shift rafts.
