Video Game Review: The Last of Us

The Last of Us

The Last of Us is brought to us by the team that developed Uncharted and boy does it ever show. Mostly taking place a number of years after a fungal zombie apocalypse, The Last of Us follows the story of two very believable characters, with flaws and quirks that really do paint them as survivors of the zombie apocalypse.

The graphics are ludicrously good, and the scenery is inspired by ‘abandoned porn’ (http://www.reddit.com/r/abandonedporn)(SFW), a genre of photography focusing on images of breathtaking abandoned and naturally ‘reclaimed’ scenes.

This game sets itself on a different shelf from the other ‘zombie’ titles, to the extent that one wouldn’t even consider this a zombie game- It’s more of a stealth game, and the zombies are unique in their gameplay mechanics.
