The Last of Us gets 10/10 from Edge Magazine


Naughty Dog's The Last of Us seems to be a hit with critics according to reviews which are starting to appear. Although the embargo doesn't break fully until tomorrow (when you'll be able to read our own review), scores are already looking good.

First up to review the game was Empire magazine, which called the title "a masterpiece," scoring it 5/5 in its overall summary. Next up was the Official PlayStation Magazine, which again offered up a perfect score. Perhaps the biggest surprise though is the latest score, which comes via a YouTube pre-roll advert from Edge Magazine, with the score being revealed as 10/10, making it only the 15th game in the magazine's history to get full marks.

As we say, our review will arrive tomorrow once the embargo ends. But it's fair to say that you probably won't be disappointed.

Thanks Huw.

Glad I pre-ordered it now! Anyone else getting it? trying to get my head around the whole clan/survivor multiplayer it's going to have. Thinking we could squad up to play if you guys fancy it.

I'll get it. All my mates are away to a ladies day at the race course, so I'll be playing this, watching Man of Steel and then playing this. Much better day.

Well you did choose a Xbox 360 with all it's like 3 exclusives over a PS3. Reaping the consequences

The multiplayer is fairly straight forward. You have clans but they don't really come into the actual gameplay. They are more generic and text based. Anyway, review tomorrow. Arrrgh I wanna talk about it. No Spoilers in the review at all BTW :D

There are two modes. Survivor and Supply. The first is to survive, the second is to gather supplies and stay alive.

I'll only hit the MP for trophies. but if it's fun, I'll keep playing @happy, I'd say yeah, Uncharted 1 was overrated, it was only OK. but 2 so far is amazing! and Jak and Dexter was great.

Can't wait for this game. Really looking forward to the review tomorrow. I wonder what the multiplayer is like.

I have a feeling that this could be one of the highest rated games around.

This is the one game that has tempted me to buy a PS3, maybe I'll pick one up cheap second hand for it when PS4 is released, sure there will be loads selling their PS3's to pay for their PS4's.

Yeah, I'm reckoning that too. Hopefully it won't drown in it's hype. Game looks amazing!

They won't announce a spin-off/sequel at E3, due to the game not being out. They'll wait till the year after or at another event to announce it.

Managed to bag the Joel Edition for £20 thanks to a Xmas voucher given to me. It's looking like a fine game but it'll have to be something very special as I'm currently being blown away by the new Tomb Raider (yes I know it's been out a while) which is a fantastic game.

Edge has awarded 10/10 to more than 14 games. This would be 16 in the regular run, and 23 overall. (Exile, Elite, Goldeneye, Super Mario Bros and Resident Evil 4 were all given 10s later.) but seriously. PS3 Official Magazine? Next you'll be saying Pikmin 3 got 10/10 by Nintendo Official Magazine or Halo got 10/10 by a X-Box Official Magazine. Personally when looking at scores I always exclude the official mag ones because they're biased. Anyways. Last Of Us. No plans to go near it. Uncharted is the most overrated series out there and Naughty Dog have yet to wow me after they lost the Crash Franchise.

I'm really looking forward to this multiplayer. If you guys fancy a game on anything, I play most games and always up for playing other games. Add me on PSN: I-Bradx Message me though so I know where you added me from otherwise i'll just ignore it. I swapped my Ellie edition for this Joel edition. Game suck!!
