With reviews pouring in for the PlayStation 4 version of arguably the greatest PlayStation 3 game ever made, The Last of Us: Remastered looks like it has once again hit a home run. While it may seem that it could be little more than a redone version of the original game, Naughty Dog has made sure to prove that notion wrong.
On Metacritic at the moment, The Last of Us: Remastered is checking in at a score of 95 out of 100. If you are familiar with the review compilation website, a 95 is out of this world good.
The Last of Us: Remastered is obviously the same storyline that gamers experienced on the PlayStation 3, and while the Remastered version isn’t lagging behind the original by too far, it is a significantly different experience.
On the PlayStation 3, The Last of Us was locked at 30 frames per second and was only depicted in 720p. On the PlayStation 4, thanks to the enhanced power, the game runs at a fluid 60 frames per second and 1080p. The experience is that much more gorgeous looking, and both the online Factions mode as well as single player run without hiccups.
From a content perspective, the fact that The Last of Us: Remastered is only $50 and includes well over $30 worth of DLC that was brought to the first game, it is nearly a no brainer to get in on the action.
The Last of Us: Remastered releases on the Sony PlayStation 4 tomorrow, and while the PlayStation 3 version has a Game of the Year award, the PlayStation 4 title may be following up with one as well.
