The Last of Us Part II reviews are now available, and claim the PS4 exclusive from first-party PlayStation Studios developer Naughty Dog is a “must-play.”
The game is currently scored 96 on Metacritic, which has awarded it the “must-play” label delivered to the unmissable titles for every platform.
The platform has listed 43 perfect scores, with only a handful of websites under 90/10 – GameSpot the bigger of these, with 80/10 – and three 7/10. Some of these include:
- Eurogamer – Essential
- USG – 4.5/5
- GamesRadar – 5/5
- IGN – 10/10
- VGC – 5/5
- GameInformer – 10/10
- GameSpot – 8/10
- Push Square – 10/10
- VG247 – 10/10
- GamesRadar+ – 5/5
- The Guardian – 5/5
One of the quotes that better highlight what’s happening with the game is from IGN’s review, which claims that “while Part 2 is a thrilling adventure, it still makes time for a stunning, nuanced exploration of the strength and fragility of the human spirit. The PlayStation 4 has one of its best exclusives in one of the generation’s best games.”
The game is releasing with a day one patch, which is going to add a photo mode and certain extra modes Naughty Dog has used us to over the years.
What’s even better – The Last of Us Part II has improved over the years since the original reveal, as disclosed in a pre-release technical analysis.
The title’s reviews are here, but the release date is still days away, as it launches on June 19 for PS4.
