The Last of Us: Remastered, PS4 Review

A rollercoaster of emotions that a game should not be able to bring up.

TLOUbannerI’ve been itching to replay The Last of Us since reviewing the PS3 version last year and that itch was something I had to ignore ever since I heard about the remastered version heading towards the PS4.
