In this sequel, Ellie becomes the main protagonist and now Ellie has grown up and has her own story.

The Last of Us Part II

For veteran gamers, Naughty Dog is a game developer studio known for its cartoon-style game, Crash Bandicoot, whose baton has been given to Activition. After being known for its iconic game, Naughty Dog created an action adventure game that is very far from Crash Bandicoot, namely Uncharted. As a result, Uncharted also gets good interest from gamers.

Then, the success of Uncharted made the developer from Santa Monica, California create a horror game with a deep story called The Last of Us. In the first series, The Last of Us was fairly successful. This game was even made a remastered version which was released back to PS4. After the success of the prequel, Naughty Dog continues this game with an unpredictable story. Well, for those of you who haven’t played this game, you can read this review.

The PS4 era is about to close, and the PlayStation 5 is ready to launch. At the end of the PlayStation 4 generation, Naughty Dog didn’t want to work on The Last of Us Part II carelessly. In fact, they delayed its release a few months in 2022. Although there are many pros and cons, this game was greeted with much praise by many parties. Naughty Dog managed to show off a PS4 game with cool graphics through the same engine used with the Uncharted 4 engine with many developments and improvements in various aspects. Not only that, instead of presenting a linear world, this sequel to The Last of Us allows you to explore places in the city of Seattle more freely. In addition, everything is also presented in really cool detail.

Naughty Dog also wants to present something realistic with very smooth animation. You’ll find details like crafting and reloading animations when Ellie is in any position. In addition, attacking enemies with melee is also no less realistic. You will find different animations of attacking enemies when in a closed or open room.
