There aren't many games as taut, engaging and enjoyable as The Last of Us was, a action-adventure survival horror video game developed by Naughty Dog and argueably the jewel in Sony's crown of exclusive titles. A dark vision of a pandemic ridden United States, a post apocalyptic world devoid of hope and ravaged by desperation, in the 3 times I played through the campaign, along with Bioshock and Infinite, it was the most emotional and memorable experience I've had in my 20+ years of gaming, because the visuals and environments are so realistic, the story so immersive and the characters so desperate, distressed and relatable, you care about what happens to them, that's what made The Last Of Us such a haunting experience, from initially being detached and reticent, our two protagonists (wonderfully brought to life by exceptional voice acting and motion capture) develop a Father/Daughter relationship, after surviving and aiding each other through desolate and scarring situations, they reveal more about each other and what they've had to do to survive, and after 3 years that's what has stuck with me, that these characters were prepared to do anything to make sure the other one was safe and alright, those actions for some reason really resonate inside of me, selfless, unselfish decisions made by a character more concerned with the well being of others than themselves.
Asa 15 year old, i dont actually have any other artbooks, so i wasnt entirely sure what to expect. i mainly bought this because well, the game is AMAZING, and having the Joel Edition, i saw a glimpse of artwork and decided to buy the full thing - im also considering things like character design/illustration as perhaps a future career, being somwthing of interest and desire.
This artbook really helps you to appreciate the little details in last of us more than you would already, things like lighting (obviously) and those extra little unrequired details that hint to you the lifestyles of hunters and fireflies - right down to the basic clothing. its also quite amazing how initial infected designs changed so much to what they are now. Although, i wish there was a little more on the character development for David than just 1 or 2 pages. and to those wondering, this does have more than mini artbooks that came with Joel/Ellie Edition and it also includes some more things that arent included in the in-game concept art bonuses.
The title says it all really, the character artwork and the scenery is absolutely stunning. Its brilliant to see how the characters were developed into their final guises for the game itself. Loads of pictures of the whole cast including the various stages of the infection. Inspiring stuff and a perfect addition to what I think will be the game of the year.
Just lost for words with the beauty of this game having played through the story 2 times already. So thought it'll be nice to purchase this item which explores the details of the games early development etc. It was a really satisfying feeling flicking through the art of this stunning game. Absolutely loved it and 100% recommend if you're a Last of Us fan yourself.
A wonderful addition to one of the greatest games ever made (my personal fav game ever). It intricately lays out all the foundations to each character designs, level designs and details the artwork to each stages in making the game. Very pleased to have it.
this was very good, it had plenty of great pictures in it.
as has already been pointed out by someone else, there is a lack of textures and 3d work, which is a bit of a shame, and there is not that much on the locations and the world. the text is a bit disappointing as well, often too short and sometimes vague (although what may seem vague to me may be detailed enough for others, it is matter of opinion).
but the characters, which are the most important bit of the game, have plenty of pictures which is fantastic, the book shows the early pictures as well so you can see how the characters developed.
This a fantastic collection/book of the art abd concept art or a veru special game made by Naughty Dog for PS3 which is basically the game of the year. The art this book contains captyres the game concepts very well and is very detailed and a nice piece to have in your collection. I thoroughly recommend it for any lAST OF US FAN AS IT SHOWS THE ART FRON CONCEPT TO DESIGN TO GAME AND IS AN EXEMPLARY BOOK OF ITS KIND.
Me and my brother played and loved the game so this was his christmas present. We both loved it, it goes into so much depth with characters and plots and how they basically designed the game. Very inspiring, highly recommend to any one who appreciates the game, or loves art/illustration. (one thing though i did think it came with the comic in the back however again it just looks at the art work for the comic)
