Version: Playstation 5
Edition: Digital

I have found an immense amount of love for Part II (I didn't like it at first). Very ambitious, daring, & is a masterwork in storytelling. The remaster is nothing short of this & then some.

The lost levels are a great bonus & very intriguing. I really think that the "Jackson Party" should have stayed in. The "No Return" mode is extremely challenging but also rewarding making it feel worth your time to play. The new skins (I'm not much of a skins guy) are pretty neat & add a little more bang for your buck.

All in all, this is a great add on to an already masterwork of a title. A $10 upgrade is fair for what you get (to those who already own it) & for those who don't, $49.99 is a great price for what awaits. It is arguably a game that DIDN'T need a remaster as it was already a fantastic looking game, but hey, I always welcome a tune up nonetheless.

Final verdict: Buy it

While I liked The Last of Us Part II before, I did have some issues with its story. I liked the characters a lot and the visceral emotions, the soul-crushing moments and the lengthy, gruelling crawl through the city extenuating the long, hard road that comes with revenge and the cost of it all. But, like many have said, it seemed at odds with its main theme, the unending cycle of violence, with the narrative contradicting itself by the end. I'd give it a very solid 8.5.

But the remaster just gives more content, contents that's meaty, fun, and complimentary to the main game, offering a quick way to jump in to the games excellent gameplay. These combat encounters give players the chance to mess around with different mechanics and play styles that, due to the main games focus on story, required a lot of patience and down time to do before. That's not to mention all the PS5 upgrades, the extras, like new levels and commentary tracks, plus lots of additional fun unlockables on top of those in the original game. You just get so much bang for your buck here, that I'll easily add that extra 1.5 to get this game up to a 10/10. Not as strong of a 10 as the original, which was a 10 without any extras or fancy bonuses, but a 10 nonetheless.

Elite graphics, elite gameplay. Story was good, not as good as part 1, but solid overall.

Had a blast playing this again. Plus, the addition of No Return mode is pretty cool!

Really got sick of the endless stealth sections. Doesn't take much to get spotted and then you have a 10 vs 1 fight on your hands.

Il titolo di Naughty Dog alla sua uscita è stato sin da subito un grandissimo successo videoludico a livello mondiale e questa versione "rimasterizzata" per le console PS5 si presenta come l'esperienza definitiva, sia a livello tecnico e grafico (seppur la differenza sia quasi impercettibile vista la già grafica mozzafiato della versione PS4), sia a livello di contenuti, anche se sono del parere che non doveva essere presentata come una "Remastered" ma come una "Director's Cut".
La nuova modalità roguelike Senza ritorno ha un grandissimo potenziale, molto divertente e variegata di contenuti, obiettivi, personaggi, skin, mimetiche e quant'altro, e sono del parere che se avessero aggiunto il multiplayer co-op per questa modalità sarebbe stata ancor più coinvolgente e voluta alla vista dei "veterani" e non del titolo. Se non l'avete ancora giocato vi consiglio assolutamente di prepararvi a vivere un'esperienza unica e che difficilmente dimenticherete col tempo.
