The Last of Us Part II is among the best games released on PlayStation 4 this year, and one of the best cinematic games of all times.
There isn’t a single other game available on PlayStation 4 that can capture the bleakness of what Naughty Dog has created with this experience, save for the first The Last of Us. It’s a harrowing narrative that can club you in the face with the message that this world just isn’t fair for anyone. From a critical opinion, The Last of Us Part II is one of the finest pieces of cinematic gaming ever created, but Naughty Dog’s final sendoff to this console generation might leave you crying in the shower.
The Last of Us Part II is now available on PlayStation 4 worldwide.
