Earlier this year Bioshock Infinite gave us a cerebral story that left gamers discussing their theories on the ending of the game. Truly a contender for game of the year, The Last of Us is another step towards a more cinematic experience in gaming.
A linear story moving across the United States, The Last of Us takes us from one breathtaking environment to another. Joel and Ellie's relationship slowly builds while you explore the remains of these cities. All about stealth, the survival horror action-adventure game is pretty much designed to destroy you if you try to go in guns blazing. Outside of some quirky AI from the NPC's, the realism of the game is astounding.
Second, only to the remarkable story the audio for, The Last of Us will stick with you. From the bone breaking sounds when you take down an assailant, to the haunting soundtrack by Academy Award winning composer, Gustavo Santaolla .The audio transports and envelops you into this post-apocalyptic world. Let us not forget the screeches of the infected a few rooms over. We used the Dolby surround sound featured with my PLYR 1's to keep tabs on our surroundings. It really gave us the edge needed to push through the more difficult portions of game.
The Last of Us should be on everyone's “Must Play” list for the year. Gamers around the office are in agreement that it could be one of most emotionally impactful games to date. Including an ending that made us reconsider our perspective on the entire game.
Listen to the soundtrack below and take a behind the scenes look with Gustavo Santaolla on the creation behind the soundtrack.
