seeing as how tlou remastered just released i figured the people who just played the game can discuss it. also PLEASEEEEE if u talk about the left behind dlc use the spoilers tag. this thread is just for the main game
i just finished this game and i can confirm for sw that it is a masterpiece in gaming. this is the closest thing to perfection, the story is beautifully crafted and presented in the game, i havnt felt this immersed in a game since bioshock. the voice acting is superb as well as the dialogue. this game reminds me of 'the assassination of jesse james by coward robert ford' in that the game is about the journey of the character, its just beautiful. (edit: forgot to mention the soundtrack, it is perfect and fits the mood perfectly)
the pacing of the game is perfect, it constantly varies the challenges and throws different obstacles towards u. the slower paced walking segments are great for breaking up the action, fighting humans is a different experience to fighting the infected which involves different strategies. i never felt bored of fighting either + the puzzle sections are simple which is good.
now the gameplay, its amazing. i love stealth games so naturally took that option in encounters but sometimes i went guns blazing because the guns are just so satisfying to use. the loot system works great in this game even though i dont like loot because it adds to the survival theme and the upgrades are basic so i enjoyed it. the variety of gameplay here is just incredible.
if there ever was a game i would give 10/10 to its this, the minor flaws are the ai sometimes acts really stupid but i played on normal mode and maybe in the harder difficulties this isnt an issue. also i noticed sometimes ellie would be standing/talking right in front of an enemies but they dont engage unless they spot me, which breaks immersion but these are minor gripes and probably something that doesnt happen on harder difficulties.
people always talk about the jump from uc1 to uc2 but the jump from the uncharted franchise to tlou is astounding. i hope uc4 is the last game of that franchise because this is so much better in every way its quite unbelievable.
ok sw, what are ur thoughts on the game?
