Sighso, I enjoyed Last of Us but was ultimately disappointed. I finished it at around 15 hours. The characters, the acting, the motion capture were all amazing and very Naughty Dog but I was let down by the gameplay. Not the mechanics but more so the linear nature of the game and the lack of a real survivalist engrossment. This game was billed as, or at least I took it as such, a true survivor experience. Bullets wont be plentiful. Struggle with decisions as to whether to shoot someone or just sneak by. None of these elements really came through for me. I always had plenty of bullets and supplies. Sneaking around only happened when I didnt want to deal with the predefined path of the clickers and while not advertised as an open-world game, I always felt like I was just going down a set path, because thats exactly what this game is. Very linear, set paths.
Im trading Last of Us in to GameStop today (50% extra this week!). I may regret doing so once the DLC is released but at the same time, itll most likely be more episodes of the story and because of all the points mentioned above, I just dont think Ill have fun with it anymore.
