The Last of Us is a PS3 exclusive third person, survivor horror, action adventure game being developed by Naughty Dogs, the famed developers behind the award winning series Uncharted. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world where you play as Joel, a cold blooded survivor seeking redemption. He is not alone in his journey, a 14 year old girl named Ellie is with him throughout the game. The Last of Us features cover based shooting and moving from cover to cover allows the player to block the line of sight of the enemies. As this is a survivor game, the ammo is in short supply and your health doesn’t recover over time! You will have to use health packs. Applying health packs requires time, if the enemy sees you doing so, they will flank you.
Naughty Dogs are known for delivering the most stunning graphics in the industry and The Last of Us is a joy to watch. The beautiful environment and greatly detailed character models are one of the most technically remarkable efforts on the PS3. The developers have stated that the game will be a genre defining experience combining survivor and action elements to tell a character driven story about a modern plague annihilating mankind.
