That’s the only word I can think of that sums up my time with this game. I literally just passed it and I’m watching the credits while writing this. This game is an incredible, emotional, gut-wrenching roller coaster ride. It is also incredibly beautiful with a great soundtrack.
I now understand why so many gaming websites gave this the game of the year award. It’s so brutal and intense. I know the zombie outbreak has been done to death in games and that’s why it took me so long to finally pick up this game and play it all the way through. When I first got it I played it and it just never really did it for me. But after seeing so much about it I just had to give it a second shot, and I’m so glad I did.
It is a game everyone should play and although I didn’t love everything about it and there were so frustrating sections, overall, this game was pretty incredible. It is about Joel and Ellie as they attempt to cross America while trying to just survive.
The music is good, the graphics are stunning, the environments you traverse through are brilliantly conceived, it’s all spectacular. But it’s not a perfect game. There were a few times when I wish it just let me explore and not think, oh people better start shooting at you now. It all turns a bit Uncharted by the end. But that is only a minor gripe. This game should be played by anyone who owns a PS3.
