The Last of Us review roundup Universally acclaimed zombie game

first_imgOne of the most highly awaited games of 2013, The Last of Us, isn’t out yet (July 14th is the big day), but today we have the next best thing: the release of the games’ initial reviews. Sites with Sony’s Most Favoured Publication status received the game not too long ago and have been able to play through it in order to deliver the opinions that we’ve so been looking forward to reading. And the verdict? Critics agree that The Last of Us is excellent and is very much the capstone to this console generation.My colleagues at IGN gave TLoU a glowing 10/10, stating that Naughty Dog’s latest, “not only [joins] the ranks of Uncharted, Killzone, God of War, Infamous and more, but it bests them all.” Forbes doesn’t quite agree — their reviewer feels that the game is very good, but at 8/10 it “falls short of greatness.” Along with Polygon’s 7.5/10, they were very much in the minority though. The Guardian, Eurogamer, CVG, Edge, PlayStation Magazine, and multiple others, gave the TLoS a perfect score.This shot sums things up pretty nicely:So, what’s a gamer to do? With comparisons to Citizen Kane and talk about this being the best game of the generation, it seems like The Last of Us is not a title to be missed, even if it does prominently feature fungus zombies. I mean, wow, reviewers are even enjoying the game’s multiplayer mode, which is all too often a throwaway on a titles like this one.As expected, Sony’s wishes and gamers’ hopes have come true, and the PlayStation has another exclusive powerhouse to hold over the Xbox. The Last of Us should be just what gamers need to get them through the dreaded summer lull.
