Understanding The Last of Us post Sony E3

The Last of Us first gameplay footage being shown at Sony’s E3 press conference is music to our ears, as this is one of the aspects of the game we have been looking forward to for sometime. We are also interested in understanding some of the more detailed information on this title post Sony E3.

This recent footage has enlightened us further, as there are several features that have been noticed, and this starts with the opportunity to interact with various objects including posters. Many other parts are documented on PlayStation Lifestyle giving respect to great water sound affects and brilliant voice acting, including stealth attacks, violent yet slow takedowns, being able to hold hostages and the chance to combine items together.

Other visual parts involve a health bar and ammo status shown on screen with no sign of the health regenerating, and as far as ammo is concerned noise of an empty gun shooting alerts the enemies to that fact that you are out of bullets. In this footage, you can also see that Ellie plays a part in assisting your combat situation, whether it is diverting enemy attention or stabbing them in the back while Joel is wrestling another attacker. The hand-to-hand combat and melee fighting is similar to that experienced in the Uncharted series and bullet reactions and wounds involve realistic movement.

Naughty Dog has also released additional details of the game’s features referring to enemy behavior that can change to reflect their surprise, or how the view the weapon they see Joel holding, and how they react is in accordance to how many survivors of their gang are remaining. Gamers responses to seeing this are of excitement noting everything from the use of the backpack to the sound quality, highlighting this as an eagerly awaited epic game that has carried Sony because if it wasn’t for this some feel Sony’s E3 would have been less than impressive.

The Wonderbook demo did not seem as enticing as games like Watch Dogs, Assassins Creed 3, The Last of Us and Beyond, as they really seemed to impress. In other relevant news a few weeks back, we wrote about new The Last of Us screenshots and showed our viewers the truck ambush trailer, and asked whether some gameplay footage would be required to keep our interest.
