    Digital foundry has a fps test for the game and it seems to attain the 60fps goal pretty well. It seems to average somewhere above 55fps in sp and in mp its solid 60fps. Seems good.

    @7: Thanks for that man, I’ll take a look just now. Was hoping DF would do something like that.

    Just read polygons review… I know it’s a matter of opinion but that reviews a piece of shit. Doesn’t applaud it for what it is and bashes it for what it isn’t. The original review I mean.

    Uurgh, fucking polygon. The person behind that review should probably stick to reviewing Mario or Kirby or something thats an effortless non-stop fun-time-land of happiness, and let someone who can handle some bleakness – and not hold it against the game – review it. Its an M-rated post-apocalyptic game named “The Last of Us”. Its not intended to be some kind of feel-good game.

    Uh, Polygon…
    The site the DECREASES score of the PS4 versions of games if XB1 has slightly fewer frame-drops but won’t do a thing (Or increase PS4 score) if PS4 version of another has better resolution AND frame-rate.

    I guess there is a reason the site was partially funded by MS (And people accuse YouTubers of getting suspicious).

    Not sure if this remaster deserves perfect score ?
    I mean still awesome game as it was on ps3, but with minor graphical update.
    I’m not hyped to replay the same game in 1080p and 60 fps.

    The GTA V nextgen release seems much better remaster, with hugely improved graphics: traffic density , lighting, vegetation, drawdistance, resolution and so on.

    The original game is good but not the second coming of Jesus.

    One hell of an overrated game right here….at least IN MY opinion.

    The gameplay is just lacking on too many fronts. It feels a bit underdeveloped. Unfinished.

    The focus was on the story and you can feel that when playing the game unfortunately…That´s not a bad thing per se but if the story didn´t fully click with you (happened to me), you´ve been left with a pretty mediocre game.

    That´s why i believe that those 10´s are absolutely undeserved.
    The Story that they´ve told has been very uninspired as well.

    Lots of beautiful graphics but the gameplay and even the story itself didn´t really deliver under all that colourful make up.

    I totally liked the multiplayer though. It suffered from the same gameplay flaws and the overall clunkyness -but the atmosphere and tension that the more slower approach, the limited ammo, crafting etc. forces on you, really was ambitious for a mp title and to me it worked better in the mp section of the game than it did in the campaign.

    I hope that they will improve on this with the next game.

    That said, the limited Steel Box Edition is on it´s way to my PS4, just received the delivery notification…I can´t wait to jump back into that MP and i will probably play through the story mode another time as well…..With even more make up now. Maybe it will help.

    @polygem Kind of agree with you. The 1st time I tried this game (on PS3) I was hooked from the start, loved the gfx, story, characters and the setting. After I finished the game I played a little MP and stopped playing.

    About 6 months later I wanted to play the SP again and I realized how bad the gameplay and the control and aiming are and the story is not that good either.

    It`s a good game but I agree, all the 10s are undeserved.

    And now you know why I feel baffled by some of the love that Destiny is receiving.
    “Colourful make up” is exactly how I would describe Destiny though without decent story, thematic or visual touches.

    Of course I really like Last of Us and lean more towards to fans who overhype it.
    It’s all just a matter of opinion and I absolutely respect yours. Good games FTW :)

    14.15. i strongly disagree with you, last the us isn’t overrated for the most of us, it is in ONE of the BEST games i ever played out there, truly a master piece.

    the polygon score is perfectly legitimate.

    conventional design choices (more specifically optimization design) is sabotaging for the emotional narrative in the game. they’ve chosen to use a generic gameplay loop (shooting, stealth) and some of the encounters come off as clearly choreographed and artificial because of it (e.g. sniper sequence, repeating puzzles). the game attempts to convey realism in the story, but generic game-contrivances (shooting loop, killing/defeating ridiculous amounts of enemies, puzzles with clearly repeating elements) is crashing with it.

    the gameplay and story could be really good if viewed independently. they just don’t have any synergy together. the gameplay is not designed for the story – but in addition to the story.

    last of us is obviously a good game despite all of this.

    i have to agree, gameplay was nothing special or AAA worthwhile.

    some stealth section were actually a huge joke ! in one level you are against some soldiers… i killed 10 in a row going circle around a half destroyed table and killing them melee from the back.
    End of the game i was a bit sate of seeing same enemy types. I wished more variety such the RE franchise, but of course less exaggerated.

    Still one of the best games to date, but not a perfect score in my book.

    @JP: yes, it is a bit too stiff isn´t it…still. it is a great game – just not a perfect 10. eventhough i understand that a game must not be literally perfect to score a 10, i think that the main gameplay should be the deciding factor for a review score…because it is a videoGAME and gameplay matters first of all. that´s how i see it at least. no problem if people see that differently, i just don´t agree with it. to achieve perfection in a game isn´t even possible probably anyway because a review always, naturally has a subjective side to it. that´s fine.

    i hear you. In destinys case though i feel like the gameplay absolutely shines. they have putted a lot of effort into making this feel right. that´s how i feel about it at least.
    let´s see how the final build turns out…

    but yeah, all a matter of taste and opinion. we all love games…sometimes it just happens that we have a very different taste in them – which is great actually because that´s why we have so much stuff to passionately fight and argue about :D

    @klewd I completely agree with you.

    I enjoyed TLOU very much, up to the point I got so frustrated by the controls that I gave up on it. I have no doubt that the story, acting, design, graphics, sound and all the little nuances make this a stunning game, but there were a couple of flaws that killed the game for me.

    The save system, for instance, would sometimes randomly put you back at the start of the section with a zombie right beside you, causing insta-kill. THAT is seriously frustrating, and did my head in. Sometimes I would be uber-stealthy and plan things down perfectly, and still get spotted by by something that simply shouldn’t have.

    Don’t get me wrong, for the amount of game I played I loved it and knew it was a masterpiece, but it was also slightly flawed. Very few reviews mention the dodgy controls, but I understand that the vast majority of people view the game as flawless. And that’s okay.

    Then let us keep on fighting the good fight for the games that suit each ones tastes and preferences :)

    Back to Destiny / TLOU, I can agree that in Destiny’s case, the core gameplay was the main focus while the presentation and thematic experience was the goal.
    I strongly prefer TLOU in this context due to various (opinion) problems with both the presentation and gameplay of Destiny but there are gameplay focused titles that definitely rank above all of these for me (Demons Souls FTW!).

    “The original game is good but not the second coming of Jesus.

    Couldn’t agree more. LOVED the game on PS3, and I think this is good for PS4 owners who never had a chance to play it previously, but that’s about it really. WAY too much overhype going on about this game IMO. And I think it’s overpriced for what little it technically improves on. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is a much better example of a next-gen upgrade/remaster IMHO.
