^ Just to add to the above.

Spoiler: show
[SPOILER="whole game spoilers"]Outside of her murder-boner against Joel, Abby is presented as a fairly reasonable person in the otherwise dog-eat-dog world of TLoU 2. She makes her team spare Tommy and Ellie even though most of her team wanted to kill them to leave no witnesses. She lets Ellie and Dina live after they pretty much killed all of her friends in the late-game as well.

We take control of her *after* she's taken her revenge and the thing that's been burning her up for the last 5 years, so now her otherwise natural personality is coming out in the way she interacts with her camp-mates and her moral standing for trying to save kids and whatnot.

The cel-shaded mode makes TLoU 2 look like TellTale's Walking Dead.

Finally a good TellTale game after so many years :p

Since we've been sharing Gamesradar articles from June :ROFLMAO:

The Last of Us 2 has consumed me. It's the last thing I've been thinking about as I've gone to bed, and the first thing that enters my head when I wake up.
What I'm trying to say is that The Last of Us Part 2 is exceptional, and quite possibly the best game I've played this generation.
All of these systems and mechanics operate together seamlessly in The Last of Us Part 2 like gears in a clock bound by a distinct, singular vision, conjuring up an experience that never feels anything less than an exemplary feat of impeccable game design.
But no masterpiece is perfect, and The Last of Us Part 2 is absolutely a masterpiece, have no doubt.
The lasting achievement is nothing short of extraordinary, and a game we'll be looking back on for decades to come.

🤷‍♂️

@CerebralTiger

I'm thinking about starting a Grounded/Perma Death run soon, played a few mins of the game with the film grain disabled, the image looks really clean, better than UC4 with the same resolution (better TAA I guess) .. it almost looks and feels like a different game without the heavy grain the game employs.

Artistic preference aside, I'm glad they have a full 0 to 10 toggle so people can keep it as much as they like or completely disable it if needed.

Yup, the IQ is really good with film grain set to 0. Definitely worth a replay for that and the filters alone. And, of course, gyro aim if you're into that.

I'd recommend just doing a Grounded run. Grounded + Permadeath would be insane lol. You still get the trophies if you do separate runs for both (Permadeath on very easy would be least troublesome).

Before one of the haters brings it up, the Metascore has dropped to 93.

Should also post the review that caused it to drop, also the screenshot like you do for other games.

Game World Navigator Magazine - 7.5/10
If you loved the original for its great characters and well-paced story – stay away from this game. However, if you’re aching to sink into the depths of depression, or just want to cut some throats and burn some zombies – Part II will deliver.




@GoldenHawk 🤣

Luckily for CerebralTiger, Opencritic only allows reviews available freely to the public, hence no print publication scores. Might've dropped to 92 there. Either way, both are at 93 now.
