The first review of Naughty Dog’s highly-anticipated title The Last of Us has gone up courtesy Empire Online, and the site reckons it’s not only a game you must buy, but it’s also the finest Naughty Dog has ever crafted. Yes, even topping the almighty Uncharted 2.
Here’s the gist of it:
The Last of Us is not just the finest game that Naughty Dog has yet crafted and an easy contender for the best game of this console generation, it may also prove to be gaming’s Citizen Kane moment – a masterpiece that will be looked back upon favourably for decades. 5/5 Stars – Unmissable.
The review was on this page of the site but has since been taken down, forced most likely by Sony as review embargoes still stand.
Who’s looking forward to The Last of Us? Surely, all PS3 owners should. I kid, I kid. But a great many are looking forward to this and with good reason: Naughty Dog is only known for greatness. Here’s to hoping that the content of this review is true, and The Last of Us turns out to be one of, if not, this generation’s most spell-binding experience. I hear topping Bioshock Infinite isn’t the simplest of tasks.
