'The Last of Us' Creates a Monstrous Journey

Ellie and Joel fighting the fungus-infected creatures that “are not zombies,” according to the game’s creators.


The enemy AI is designed to respond based off of Joel’s movements and actions, so this will lead to some awkward moments where Ellie can literally walk right past an infected person or a survivor and they won’t even react. It isn’t a huge oversight, but when it happens it’s enough to take you out of the game for a moment and cast a skeptical eye.

SUMMARY

The Last of Us is not your run-of-the-mill survival story. It is not about common elements like finding a cure or fighting off hordes of infected people; in a way, this is a story about how people learn to survive long after they have emotionally given up. Accepting a life of running, hiding, and starving, The Last of Us reminds us that in a world long gone, our greatest enemy can often be ourselves.
