Quick Review: The Last Of Us [Remastered]


Developer: Naughty Dog

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

Release Date: June 14, 2013 (Remastered: July 29, 2014)

Played Platform: PS4


Things I liked:

  • Stealth mechanism
    • Use of shiv to kill clickers
    • I always used this method before relying on guns
    • Using bottles and bricks to distract them – realized later in the game that bricks are stronger than bottles
    • Listen mechanism to see what enemies are around you
    • Moving the analog stick slowly so that clickers won’t hear you
  • Ammo and equipment are sparse
  • Upgrade-able weapons and stats
  • Different types of weapons
    • Build different types of creative weapons
    • Need to find recipe first in order to build them
  • Play as Ellie (main story and DLC)
  • Good Guy Naughty Dog – Keeping your loot after an event (unlike the Uncharted series) [didn’t want to spoil what event]

Things I did not liked:

  • Melee could be improved
    • When I swung the first strike, it looks like it’s going to hit, but it doesn’t
    • Can’t choose to use fists if you’re holding a melee weapon
  • Can’t backtrack to see what loot you can get
    • The path is blocked

Things that came to mind:

  • ON THE FENCE – use of the Dualshock 4 to recharge the flashlight’s battery (same as Uncharted 4)
  • Would have probably enjoyed more of the story if I didn’t know that there would be a sequel coming out
