The Last of Us: Remastered

The release of The Last of Us on the Playstation 3 last year rightly won the game a plethora of game awards for the graphics, gameplay and engaging story. The Remastered version doesn’t drift from the original game other than in graphics, but then, it doesn’t need to.
A zombie-like plague has decimated humanity into disparate communities controlled by a ruthless martial law where the infected roam the areas outside of the controlled zones attacking on sight. Joel, a man broken in spirt by the loss of his family is given the mission of delivering a young girl across the country. The girl holds the key to a potential vaccine that could save humanity, but Joel’s weariness with life and un-caring recklessness must be overcome.
Graphically, The Last of Us is outstanding. It’s not photorealistic, but it’s as close as any console title has come. The story is still involving and the gameplay remains addictive. If you’ve played The Last of Us on the Playstation 3, other than for a couple of additional multiplayer maps and a prequel game section, there’s really no reason to get Remastered. If you are new to the franchise however, this is the first must-own title on the PS 4. Simply outstanding.
