News - The Last Of Us Part 2 Review Roundup: What Are The Critics Saying?

The Last Of Us Part 2 Review Roundup: What Are The Critics Saying?

The Last of Us Part II is still a week away from launching, and the general consensus from reviews is that it's going to feel like a long wait. The latest from Naughty Dog, The Last of Us Part II picks up a few years after the PS3 original, following Ellie on a bloody path of revenge. It's bleak, tragic and gut-wrenching, but a tale most reviews suggest you don't miss.

Overall critic reception has been incredibly positive, with a few caveats. In GameSpot's own 8/10 spoiler-free review for The Last of Us Part II, editor Kallie Plagge commends the game's strong characters and tense combat, but feels it suffers from pacing issues and uneven analysis of its themes. "In the second half of the game, these exploration issues persist, as do the horrors of combat and violence. But for reasons I can't explain due to spoiler restrictions, the narrative shifts significantly at a certain point, and the context of everything you've done up until then changes along with it. There's a lot I want to say that I'm not allowed to until the game is out, but this half of the game is the reason anything in it works at all. It examines a lot of the violence that happens early on, though not all the violence in general, and it's where the story finds its meaning." Take note that we'll be publishing another review (with the same score) that further explores the story and other spoiler-y elements once the embargo permits us to do so.

In the meantime, we've gathered additional reviews below, with the majority laying praise on the game's narrative and personal character writing. A lot of praise has also been given to the game's extensive accessibility options, allowing more players than ever to experience the game in a manner that is comfortable for them. For more reviews, check out our sister site Metacritic to see what other sites had to say. Plus, see our The Last of Us Part II pre-order guide for more information on pre-order bonuses and special editions.
