2The Last of Us Part II
We were apprehensive of Naughty Dog making a follow up to The Last of Us. It just didn’t seem necessary. Having now played The Last of Us Part II through to completion, however, we’re so happy it exists.
Continuing the story from where the first game left off, The Last of Us Part II reunites players with Joel and Ellie who are now living fairly peacefully in Jackson. They soon find themselves dealing with the effects of past transgressions, however, and are thrown once more into violence.
The Last of Us Part II is quite possibly the darkest, bleakest game we’ve ever played. Mechanically, however, it’s brilliant, and its story is thought-provoking and utterly compelling. It’s not only one of the best PS4 exclusive games, it’s one of the best games ever made. It’s as simple as that.
