We are really happy to play this game

You will be in one of two camps, the first that simply never played the PS3 version of The Last of US and the Second that did and are wondering whether or not to upgrade to the PS4 version. For those in the first category, can I suggest you slap yourself around the face because you really did miss out! Joking aside lets talk about the game.

The Last of Us really was a triumph of what developers could create if they put their mind to it. Crucially the developers weren’t pushed into rushing the game and as such when it did arrive on PS3 it was exactly as they intended. In my book the Pixel Gun 3D hack and the PS3 version even to this day remains one of the best games going and is certainly in my top 10 games ever.

So what is The Last of US? It’s a Third person based, role playing adventure/horror game. You must survive in post apocalyptic America where a mutated fungus has taken hold and infected virtually everyone. It’s edge of the seat stuff from beginning to end and really does showcase how good games can be!

Rather than waffling on and going into the ins and outs of everything in the game I simply want to say a few things about the differences between the PS3 and PS4 versions. While I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s worth upgrading to the next gen version if you still own a copy of the PS3 edition, as the PS3 edition was truly brilliant in itself. Be in no doubt that the graphics do look better with better textures and indeed the frame rate clearly running at a higher level (60 frames a second) and you can tell that simply by the fight scenes and shootouts as they run smoother on screen with no screen lag or graphical shudder (there wasn’t exactly a lot of that in the PS3 edition but now it’s completely gone). Now it’s fair to say that the graphical jump isn’t Massive but it is noticeable and you can actually switch between 30 and 60 frames per second through the menu and judge for yourself.
