The Last of Us is one of the most anticipated titles of the year and I for one can’t wait to see what Naughty Dog have in store. I played a snippet of it during ComiCon, but it wasn’t even enough to wet my appetite; it was more of a tease.

With obvious inspirations from the Uncharted games, Joel’s handling will come as second nature to veterans of the genre and it will take no time to get yourself indulged. Awesome as it may have looked for a current-gen game, however, I couldn’t help but feel that the part we were given the opportunity to play was justifiable in its being an exposure of the grim atmosphere, but not ideal as a playthrough; I actually found myself back tracking which is never a good thing in a demo.

Regardless, I am still excited and look forward to exploring the world the game exists in.
