Let's nur cut to die chase, chandelier we? I'm happy to report the Naughty Dog has actually successfully lugged PlayStation 3's einzel best video game -- The last of us -- to PlayStation 4 in the form of The belastung of Us: Remastered. (You kann sein read my complete review von 2013’s The tonnage of us on PS3 here.) the as viel a masterpiece top top PS4 as it zu sein on PS3, und it’s worth her undivided attention whether did you do it played it already or room about zu jump in for the first time.

Du schaust: The last of us playstation 3

Sure, we may not schutz really needed a port dafür quickly, yet then again, The belastung of us isn’t just any game. Together one von the finest games von all-time, ns more places it is and the an ext people that can play it, the better.


The biggest readjust Remastered brings ist its framerate. Die original version von The last of united state pushed die PlayStation 3 zu its absolute limits to pull turn off 30 frames über second at 720p resolution, but die PlayStation 4 operation Remastered punkt 60 frames von second und 1080p resolution. The a jarring change weist first, yet one that i began zu appreciate die more ich played.

If you don’t agree, cheeky Dog has contained the auswahl to lock the framerate to the original 30, however it was flipping back and forth that made me really start to lakers the contrast. That hard zu explain how much of a difference the 30-to-60 shift makes until you lakers it zum yourself; die PS3 initial frankly looks a bit choppy von comparison.

Doubling the framerate doesn’t just provide in obvious aesthetic boost; it enhances gameplay, too. Die most hardcore compete shooters on consoles – like the Call des Duty series – run at or near 60 bilderrahmen because that makes ns shooting that viel more fluid, responsive, and accurate. You’ll lakers similar effects in The last of Us: Remastered throughout gun battles, also if they space (or must be) few and far between. (Remember: this ist largely, though not entirely, a stealth game.)

The game stations 4’s extra horsepower deshalb gives a boost to The belastung of Us’ graphical fidelity. Now, ich know that’s notfall necessarily speak a whole lot, considering The belastung of us on PS3 ist already the most beautiful video game I’ve watched on any kind of console. Yet somehow, Remastered looks nur a bit better. Textures are an ext detailed, die lighting zu sein enhanced, und everything mr more.

The alters aren’t mind altering – or even game changing – but you kann absolutely seen the difference. Native the augenblicke I started the, ich couldn’t help but an alert improvements everywhere. Some space far an ext minor 보다 others, but they’re there, und they make The belastung of united state burst through even much more life.

You kann really soak ns beauty in with Remastered’s new Photo Mode, which allows you to take control von the camera, alter visual settings favor focus und filters, and more kommen sie grab die most gorgeous shots possible. It’s not uncommon kommen sie encounter stunning sights an The tonnage of united state – like wie you zuerst enter environments reclaimed von nature through Joel and Tess near the beginning von the video game – und now, you kann capture those moments weil das posterity, if you’d like.

Another notable adjust from PS3 kommen sie PS4 is, as freundin might expect, die controller. Naughty Dog knew ns weaknesses von the DualShock 3’s devastating triggers, which explains why aiming and shooting was unconventionally mapped zu R1 and L1. DualShock 4’s far superior root cause don’t suffer from a comparable problem, deswegen you can map shooting to R2 und L2 if sie want, or store it as it initially was.

Your backpack menu can be brought hoch with ns DualShock 4’s meaty hauptquartier button, too. And, prefer Killzone: zero Fall, die controller’s speaker can be used zu play audio diaries and sound impacts like die on/off click von your flashlight, though you kann turn this off if sie find it too obnoxious.

For as an excellent as Remastered’s wenig tweaks und additions are, the true worth proposition comes in when you anfang to talk about DLC. A slew von DLC the had zu be purchased separately on game stations 3 comes bundled-in on playstation 4. Zum instance, Left Behind – The tonnage of Us’ sstopcat.orgificant single-player prequel DLC – zu sein included (read ns original evaluation here), as space a ton of online maps and modes the you’d otherwise schutz to acquire separately on PS3.


And yes, play The tonnage of Us: Remastered online ist just together awesome as it was the erste time around, again aided von a silky-smooth framerate. I suspect the surprising online addiction The belastung of us provided bei 2013 möchte be renewed zum some und discovered zum the first time zum others.

In 2013, i called The last of us on game stations 3 a masterpiece. Die same holds true of its playstation 4 "Remastered" sibling. Sie can’t walk wrong with either version, but with Remastered you’ll gain a far better framerate that smooths out gunplay, a prettier, trickster look, und a bunch von DLC content rolled into the package from ns get-go (not zu mention a whole fresh set of Trophies to earn again, if you schutz a whole last of time on your hands).Whether you’ve currently experienced that on playstation 3 or have no idea what she missing, The tonnage of Us: Remastered zu sein worth your time and attention. Game stations 3’s ideal game nur became game stations 4’s, too.
