PlayStation 5 – The Last of Us Part 1 review

This game is absolutely astonishing. ‘The Last Of Us’ is a much loved game series, yet over time the graphics became less on par with much of the modern game releases. Until this new version was created.

The game follows Joel as he attempts to complete a simple mission to help a 14 year old girl called Ellie to a research facility, which quickly diverges into a vast journey through many zombie infested towns and human conflicts in an attempt to save the world from a zombie virus. Along the way players will meet many characters, some friends, some foes, and ultimately attempt to save humanity.

The Last of Us part 1 looks absolutely breathtaking. The graphics and animations are so realistic it’s like you’re just watching a TV show. Also what’s impressive, is the little extra details they’ve added into the new version of game that weren’t in the original, such as Ellie and Joel getting wet when it’s raining or when they fall in a pool of water. The combat is incredible too, with many upgrades and weapons so you’re able to beat the game in your own unique way. And finally it has incredible pacing. This is a very long story, but it does it feel like it was dragged out, nor does it feel too rushed while working through the story.

If I have any problems with the game, it’s that the human fight scenes became a bit repetitive at times. But even then, they were still very enjoyable.

Overall this is without a doubt one of the best games of all time, and it’s remake only makes it better. Anyone who enjoys playing solo adventure games needs to play this, and even if you’ve played the original, it’s well worth checking it out the new updated game to see the amazing changes.

I would easily give this 5/5 stars and recommend you try it out as soon as you can!!!

LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System review by Con

Available from all good retailers (18 Years +) 5 Stars

Youth #Gottit View:

This is a thing of beauty that every gamer of any age will want to build and own. It’s quite straight forward to construct and once fully built has some wonderfully interactive features. Be aware that the ’18 Years +’ on the box is more a ‘age targeted’ branding guidance, rather than a recommended age for building. Anyone with a good level of LEGO building ability age 10 years and up should be able to construct the Nintendo NES. Highly Recommended!!!
