About The Last of Us
The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven tale about a modern plague decimating mankind. Nature encroaches upon civilization, forcing remaining survivors to kill for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.

A thrilling, cinematic, movie-like action-adventure with the best videogame pairing ever conceived.
- 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.
- Dull and repetitive environmental puzzles. Ladders, planks and make-shift rafts.

Of course those are my opinions but if there is one thing these examples show is ...
