“Clocking in at just under 30 hours, it’s twice the length of the original. But length isn’t the only thing magnified in The Last of Us Part 2. It’s more challenging, harrowing and thoughtful than its predecessor. As the final scene fades to black, you’ll feel the satisfying fatigue that follows from having your emotions well and truly stirred.”

Kallie Plagge, GameSpot:

“It’s all messy and bleak and made me profoundly sad for myriad reasons, but the more I reflect on it, the more I appreciate the story and characters at its core. I wanted almost none of it to happen the way it did, and that’s what’s both beautiful and devastating about it.”

Andrew Webster, The Verge:

“Violence in games isn’t anything new. There are plenty of titles that try to use brutality as a way to make players feel something, anything, in a game, whether it’s Hotline Miami or Call of Duty. Much of what I’ve described could be said of the original The Last of Us. What makes the sequel different is the way it makes you question your actions. You don’t just kill people; you see the repercussions.”
