The Last of Us Part 2 Spoilercast

The release of The Last of Us Part II is easily one of the greatest moments of 2020 for PlayStation players around the world. Naughty Dog’s most recent action-adventure title, and sequel to the beloved original became the quickest-selling Sony title and PS4 exclusive title within its first few days and has received great critical acclaim. In fact, we here even gave it a rare score of 100!

Despite this, not everyone agrees that The Last of Us Part II is one pf the greatest games of this generation. And if you were paying attention to gaming news, there was quite a bit of controversy surrounding the title after its release, specifically where the narrative is concerned. It seems that even here at COGconnected we share different opinions on the game. Sure, it really is a technical marvel and it looks amazing, but what exactly do Rhett, Paul, and Trevor have to say about it? It seems they’re going to just have to agree to disagree on some aspects of the game. You can listen to the latest episode of the Press X to Podcast below.

Now if you’re a little confused about what exactly the guys are talking about, you can take a read through our review of The Last of Us Part II here. If you’re just looking for a brief snippet, we’ve got you covered on that too. “The Last of Us Part 2 is uncomfortably real. It’s gritty, heavy, and polished to a mirror sheen. Even now, a week on from completing it, I’m feeling its weight. It’s far from what I anticipated, but crucially it did the work to get me invested. An astounding technical marvel, The Last of Us Part 2 deftly weaves diverse exploration and fun combat into the mix, resulting in a truly brilliant package.”
