Two months in... final verdict?

[ Edited ]

It's hard to believe, but the game has been out now for two months. Coming out of the gate, most of us gave it a perfect score. Looking back now and having time to soak it in, do you still find it worthy of a perfect score? Is it everything you expect and more? If not, then what changed your original rating of the game? 

 

 

Personally, I haven't played it in about 3 weeks. Do I still think it's worthy of a perfect score? Hell yeah. What matters most to me is my first impression of a game after I have time to soak it in, rather than the final impression of when I'm done with it and toss it away. I have put many hours into this game and I think it's a beautifully crafted game. I might not play it as much as I used to, but I still think it's one of the best titles of this generation.

Nothing has changed, it will always be 10/10 for me, no matter what. Even if Naughty Dog would release a TLoU 2 that is better than original TLoU (which sure seems impossible), I would still call TLoU perfect. Although, I haven't played MP which people seem to dislike... but I don't care. I play The Last of Us just because of the single player.

 

Because the game's fanbase and the people that like it could be called...

 

...The Best of Us.

I don't know who dislikes the multiplayer, but I thought it was awesome. It was a breath of fresh air and it's a very unique experience.

Its 9.5 now because of lack of gore in EU versions.

The Last of Us is easily one of the best games I will ever play.  It does just about everything right and aside from minor glitches/bugs, that aren't a part of the game's design anyway, I can't find a thing to complain about.  The music, atmosphere, characters, story, and gameplay are seemingly perfect.  If I were rating on the SP alone, I would give the game a 10/10.

 

Thing is, I have now played over three weeks of multiplayer (only one journey, I don't get to play for long periods of time), and it does bring my score down.  It is a unique experience compared to most shooters, and there are plenty of elements that make TLoU MP worth playing over any other game.  However, there's still some major problems (like late-joining) that make so very frustrated.  I also am finding that the MP isn't nearly as fun or rewarding when attempting to simply play and not aim for parts.  Regardless, it retains a feeling of tedium, but this could change with the addition of maps and modes in the future.

 

With both MP and SP in consideration, I have to give TLoU a 9/10, but the campaign is something I look forward to playing a hundred more times, as I've done with both Souls titles and the original Bioshock.

Still remains as a 9.8/10 game for me. Which by the way is the highest score I have ever given for a game.

For me is,

The Last Of Us

 

Playstation 3 Game Of The Year

Playstation 3 Best Game

Game of the Decade

Game of my Life

 

I never played a game truth around 20+ times and even find new things.

I never got that attached to Chars like in The Last Of Us.

I never had such a deep (realistic) Story like in The Last Of Us.

I never had that much to thing about a Game.

I never listed to a Score that much.

 

 

Maybe i'm just a Fan...

...how ever who complain about this,

just 1 other Game what offers a Story and Chars like this...

i would love to know about.
