  • The Last of Us is a third-person Survival-Action game and PlayStation 3 exclusive featuring a unique character action
    driven storyline focused on the unlikely pairing of a young girl and a hardened scavenger in a post-apocalyptic
    gameworld. The game utilizes multiple gameplay mechanics, including "Dynamic Stealth," allowing differing possible
    strategies and techniques in conflicts, resulting in different possible outcomes. Additional game features include AI
    that adapts to choices and situations, a variety of enemies, a live inventory system, and beautiful graphics. Story 20
    years after a pandemic has radically changed known civilization, infected humans run wild and survivors are killing each
    other for food, weapons - whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a violent survivor, is hired to smuggle a 14
    year-old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone, but what starts as a small job soon transforms into
    a brutal journey across the U.S. Gameplay The Last of Us is a third-person Survival-Action game that utilizes choices in
    gameplay action to develop the game storyline, as well as the relationship between the two main characters, Joel and
    Ellie. The game features a combination of combat, exploration, stealth and platforming game mechanics. Although Joel and
    Ellie are both residents of a post-apocalyptic world, they have had different experiences that affect the way they see
    the world around them, and feel about what they see and do. Joel had a life before the pandemic, while the world of the
    pandemic is all that Ellie has ever known. As part of Joel's job to smuggle Ellie out of the quarantine zone, players
    have to make choices in how they deal with enemies, which include, roving gangs of human scavengers not unlike
    themselves, military elements and infected civilians. Player also have opportunity to together interact with elements of
    the world around them, which helps to build the bond between Joel and Ellie. Resources in the game are scarce, making
    overwhelming use of firepower unlikely and unwise in conflicts, and resource gathering missions. In addition, most other
    residents of the ruined world that are encountered are just trying to survive - blurring the line between good guys and
    bad guys. Finally, game AI react differently depending on the specifics of the player's actions, making choice in
    gameplay a major consideration. Key Game Features Third-person oriented gameplay that blends survival and action
    elements into a genre-defining video game experience Character driven story about a population decimated by a modern
    plague, and the resulting ambiguity of good and evil A unique blend of exploration, platforming, stealth, and combat
