USGamer Delivers a Thoughtful TLoU: Remastered Review
The Last Of Us: Remastered has arrived and with it, a ton of controversy. For instance, it’s worth noting that while the upgraded edition currently holds a 95 Metascore, the average User Score is only 77.
That’s only the tip of the iceberg, as gamers have been arguing over this title since it was announced. However, when reading the reviews, it’s time to cast aside all the rumors, argument, and personal opinion, and attempt to locate a professional, thoughtful, insightful analysis. We weren’t surprised to find it at USGamer, a source we’ve honored multiple times here at VGRHQ.
Critic Jeremy Parish provides his readers with exactly what we wanted: A review that reflects the artistic – albeit decidedly unoriginal – style of the game in question. Reading this will make you appreciate the game the way it deserves to be appreciated.
Why We Like It:
— First and foremost, we love the intro. This is someone who put a lot of effort into the introduction, which is critical in all forms of writing: Grab the reader with a hook right off the bat.
— The critic doesn’t blindly elevate the title to an exalted position, simply because of its production values. He balances the stellar technical and artistic achievement with a candid observation of the genre.
— Such a game is just begging for intriguing angles in a review, and Parish focuses on the “surrogate”-type relationship between Joel and Ellie. It’s another example of going that extra mile.
