E3 2013 is already starting to make a lot of noise about a new generation of consoles, but Sony and Naughty Dog are reminding us all that what we've already got is still pretty special too, with the PlayStation 3-exclusive The Last of Us due to launch worldwide this week.
The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Abandoned cities are being reclaimed by nature and the remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.
AusGamers reviewer Nachosjustice explores the post pandemic world for an in-depth review, and departs with a lasting impression, and a bunch of nice things to say. Check out our Last of Us review for the full story.

I'm a bit gutted this is PS3-only, would of liked to play it.

Also, I have this completely confused with I Am Alive, anyone else notice that?

Really looking forward to this, it's one of the last games I'm keen on from this generation. Looks fantastic.

Been playing all arvo, consider me very very impressed... possibly one of the best if not the best ps3 title i have played to date.

^^ what?

I would have played it had it been on PC, not buying a console just for one game.

I've played a few hours of it tonight and I'm really enjoying it so far. Pacing is really good, gameplay is varied, but f*** do I suck at shooting in console games!

I didnt follow this very closely over development, and I was hoping the apple had fallen further from the Uncharted tree. Once I got over my expectations it got pretty fun, but the gameplay is very rinse and repeat. Stellar production values though.

Why does the review have load times in the negative column? I've played through 50% of the SP and there are absolutely NO load times after the initial load, which is awesome! The loading is all hidden in the cut scenes and streamed really well. Maybe clarify if it's the multiplayer where you're seeing the load times? (I haven't tried MP yet)

^this,

I've made a habbit of not quitting out a ps3 game once i start playing it cause load times in general are always terrible on a ps3.

hands down one of the best games I've played this gen. I didn't notice the loading cause i did it in 2-3 sittings haha. Outside the initial load, didn't notice it at all. Well transitioned. I bought a PS3 for this and even if I didn't buy another PS3 game, I'd still say it's my moneys worth.

Damnit. I had to sell my PS3 before moving back from London. Never play the piece of s*** and now this comes out.

Looking for a cheap PS3 on gumtree... mofos on that site be smoking crack with the overpriced second hand ps3's.

EBGames pre-owned machines are cheaper than gumtree. Would cost like $200 including game... probably still too much.

Jesus nice to see so many positive responses, its almost unheard of these days to get a string of people give such glowing reports of a game.

I don't have a PS3 and TLoU incredibly unlikely to come out on PC, so this is the first game I'm considering just watching a Let's Play youtube series from start to finish because everyone's raving about the story and by reports it's only around 9-10 hours long.

From what I can gather this series is one where the dude isn't completely obnoxious and tries not to talk over stuff all the time.

There's enough decent PS3 only titles out there other than The Last of Us....borrow a PS3 from a mate or something.

I've never watched one of the walk through video things for the various games, but I just get the feeling like you'll be missing out on sooo much I don't know if it would be enjoyable. Exploring the world, doing things at your own pace in your own way, I don't know how good the story would be if you didn't go through it yourself.

It's been a long time since i couldnt put a game down. This was the game that did it.
I finished it 3 days after it came out. I had a few days off as a coincidence. Just amazing.

i don't think it will have the same impact by just watching it, but go for it if you're never going to buy/borrow a ps3. also it took me almost 17hrs to complete the game.

lol just heard on the radio here that sony is going to have to patch the game because there are some signs or some s*** for pest control companies as part of the environment with 1800 numbers. Well it turns out the 1800 numbers are real and are phone sex lines.

apparently the story is on Kotaku

Yeah I'm conflicted, I'd never buy one but I could possibly borrow a PS3 to play it.

Bought a PS3 just to play this, not disappointed in the slightest.

20 hours and 5 minutes from start to finish. In a word: amazing.

In a few words: One of the best character building narratives I have ever experienced, regardless of media platform (movie, book, game). Doesn't really touch on the wider picture (where the infection came from, etc) but that is really just a plot device and irrelevant next to the emotions and conflict between Joel and Ellie while they travel through post-apocalyptic America.

Borrowed a PS3 to play this, now I'm lending it to the friend who gave me the console. Considering going and buying a PS3 just for this game, I'm thinking a second hand one.

A gaming masterpiece.

Nah I agree that games are getting better at telling stories than other mediums, I think you build a stronger connection with these characters because you also play as them and help them through their challenges.

Firstly, yes I do read books and agree they are awesome. Secondly, you cannot control the characters in books which is what I was getting at.

Ahh I caved and started watching the play through on youtube, no regrets at all.
