This June 19 comes the long-awaited sequel to Naughty Dog, The Last of Us Part 2, which just like its first game did, will arrive in the last year of its console showing not only the full potential of this, but one of the better ways to say goodbye to this generation and what better way than giving us the sequel to one of the best games in history , the one that left us with mixed emotions. Thanks to PlayStation we have been playing it for more than a week and we present our first impressions of this great game.
The next preview is totally spoiler-free, so rest assured you can continue reading.
The Last of Us Part 2 follows the line of its previous title, a survival horror with a lot of action and adventure, we will soon realize the novelties as a setting. Beginning in that, unlike the first installment, the maps are much larger and we may even get lost on more than one occasion, however, the perfect excuse to have large areas is the freedom to explore and the one that puts us on paper visiting new areas to get more items, also having unexpected encounters and it is our decision if we want to go straight for our mission or seek resources. The best way to get the most out of the game is to explore every corner of our map, this will lead us to find great surprises and activate our adventurous spirit.
The gameplay is practically the same as in the first game, in which we will have a third-person shooter and with some tactical elements, some new features have been added to this; Among them is the power to jump, this had been announced weeks ago because in the first game we could not do this, it may seem insignificant, but it gives great possibilities for exploration, breaking limits or rather exceeding “gaps”, another of the great What’s new is the possibility of swimming, as this will allow us to continue advancing, although we must be careful with our oxygen since many times it will call us to be underwater in search of some secret.
The menu of improvements and items has not changed much with respect to the previous game because we knew that it was difficult to improve it as if this menu was quite useful and you felt that you had everything at hand, but now they have simplified some things for quick access We can now access new additions to “upgrade” our skills.
The stealth is quite intense and even with more prominence than the previous game, it has really made me feel fear and anxiety trying that the enemy does not discover me , I think I have never experienced anything like it before or in Metal Gear. Again we will use the elements to distract although sometimes this can play against us, this time the enemies will be much more alert than before and we must be very careful when making noise, one detail is that the option of the alert indicator will not be active from the beginning, we must activate it from the options menu if we want it to alert us as in the first game or just guide us from the sound. Although the game invites you to be as cautious as possible to avoid those unnecessary confrontations, we can also simply kill everyone that comes our way, although this will alert more enemies and we will have less ammunition, remember that this is a survival game and we will better to save on everything.
Realistic down to the smallest detail, you will feel that the enemies have a life of their own because their reaction will often surprise you by how accurate they are, it is also likely that you feel empathy for any of them, it is definitely more than sure that you are sorry to kill an animal because In this game you can do it and that is why stealth has a higher value.
Graphically the game again stands out for the realistic nature of its characters and settings. The characters have a life of their own, the degree of realism that we have reached is incredible; his gestures, movements among others, will feel very real, you will be amazed by how realistic and detailed the scenarios are, which luckily we will have the photo mode included, in which we will surely take a great shot that denotes a lot to the game, many times I have been alone walking around the place to see the details; from the movement of herbs, the footprints, the water, among many other things. The soundtrack lives up to the first game, putting those precise themes and sounds right at the right time. The voice acting is of another level, many times it will give you chills to see the sequence of the game to see how realistic it looks.
Without a doubt The Last of Us Part 2 promises a lot and for the moment we can say that the game we are really enjoying, it certainly manages to live up to the previous game, in which it was not easy to beat, you see the great work and commitment that the people of Naughty Dog have put to him. Remember that this June 10 we will launch our complete analysis of The Last of Us Part 2, an exclusive PlayStation 4 game that will arrive on June 19 and which was recently confirmed to also be released for PlayStation 5.
