Capitalizing on the post apocalyptic theme, comes Last of Us. While the game is slated for a June 14th release for Playstation3 only, this is definitely one of the most anticipated titles of the year.
Last of Us starts off twenty years after a deadly type fungus has wiped away millions and many places among the country have been abandoned. If you are lucky enough to be alive (in a sense), you are placed in a quarantine zone run by the United States military. Playing from a third person view, you are the character Joel. From the story progression you are on a mission to sneak a 14 year old girl name Ellie away from the zone. This small mission soon expands as you on a journey throughout the country.
While making this journey through multiple environments you will encounter those who have been "infected" and those desperate to survive this new world. Your tools to deal with these problems however, will be scarce. You will have to evaluate the risk and gain of what you try to acquire and when to use those items.
The team at Naughty Dog (Uncharted series) seems to have created another hit and are able to grab the player from the start of Last of Us. What do you think? Check out Last of Us.
