One of our top 5 games announced in the E3 2012 last year is finally here. Action-adventure game The Last of Us by Naughty Dog (creators of Uncharted series) makes its local premiere on the PlayStation 3 thanks to X-Play Online Games, Inc.
Touted as “gaming’s Citizen Kane moment”, The Last of Us is considered as the finest game that Naughty Dog has crafted and an easy contender for the best game of this console generation. The game allows the adventurous gamer to embark on a unique journey of survival, blended with genre-defining experience and action elements that tells a character-driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague.
This is not your average action-adventure game though, it’s survival mode as its finest as you play Joel, a violent survivor, who is hired to smuggle a 14-year old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone. In the journey you will come across infected humans running wild and survivors killing each other for food, weapons, whatever else they can get their hands on.
Learn how to survive day-by-day by scavenging for vital resources, crafting weaponry out of environmental objects, and competing with other survivors for limited supplies and ammo.
This highly-anticipated game has also been gaining ground in the gaming scene, garnering rave reviews from respected gaming magazines and blogs. Sites like Eurogamer, GamesRadar, Joystiq, IGN, and Machinima are just a few of the many that bestowed The Last of Us with a perfect 10. It also has a Metacritic average of 95.
