The Last of Us: Remastered

There are those who think that remakes of films and games are a bad idea

as they believe that they show a lack of creativity and originality.

However when a game is remastered it can be another story entirely.

Many classics from the past have had a graphical update especially PS 1-2

classics that were brought up to modern standards for the PS 3.


However when a game is remastered less than a year after the original game

was released, many are sure to have questions.

With The Last of Us Remastered, Naughty Dog has given Playstation 4 fans

what they have wanted, a top-flight game with a winning online component

and the amazing DLC that extended the story behind the award winning

original game for the PS 3.


The original game was a defining statement for the PS 3 but the game

pushed the system to the limits and with the PS 4 following soon after and

not being backwards compatible, a PS 4 version of the game was the best


The game shines as the graphics have been taken to an even higher level

and the faster frame rates and smooth play let you really enjoy the

immersive world of the game as well as taking the horror to the next



Playing as survivors from a Zombie like outbreak, players embark on an

escort mission to take a young girl to safety who may just hold the fate

of humanity in her blood.

The horror, violence, weapon crafting, and great narrative are all here,

and better than ever.


As a fan of the game, I had wondered if remastered graphics would be

enough to get players to want to play through a game again or if it was

mainly for those who had yet to purchase the game.


I have enjoyed the multiplay although I did have some long waits in my

connection, which thankfully have been addressed in the latest patch.

My wife had a interest in the PS 3 version of the game although horror

games are not her thing. When I started up the PS 4 version of the game

she was riveted to the tense opening scenes and narratives.


In the end there will be those who say that they do not want to play for a

game they have only recently purchased but Naughty Dog reduced the price $10.00 and added on the bonus content to make the investment a much better deal.


When you look at all the DLC content, episodes, as well as the ability to

screen cap and stream your action on the PS 4, to say nothing of the jaw

dropping visuals, The Last of Us Remastered is a must own for PS 4 fans as

they have made a near perfect game even better.
