I do love the switch to Ellie as the main character and the main theme of hate. I've read so many 'dissertations' on the net concerning the game's first ending - I've got no doubt that they can pull off a sequel and build on that even further.
After years of having TLOU on my backlog, I decided to finally played it last Sunday.
After 5 days and 13 hours, I finished The Last of Us for the first time. It was pretty good.
+ It was a well balanced survival game.
+ Good sound design.
+ Good use of linear progession and linear levels.
+ Good use of violence.
+ Winter Level
+/- Joel & Ellie didn't have as much interaction as I would have liked.
- "Terrible shit happens" trope gets overused.
- The first hour is a drag to play.
- They could have being a bit more creative with the Zombie apocalypse tropes.
God damn, first part was awesome. Mix of different technologies, interesting stories, charisma of main characters helps you to feel better connection with what is happening. You can associate yourself with main characters of this game and you will find some details or situations which can help you in future live. I hope that Part II will be better or the same with first parts
