Review: The Last of Us 2 is Naughty Dog’s greatest game

The California studio shows off with a mesmerising, yet brutal sequel

Creative director
Neil Druckmann
Key Credits
Troy Baker (Performance: Joel), Ashley Johnson (Performance: Ellie), Halley Gross (Writer)

Naughty Dog has taken everything to the limit to create The Last of Us 2 – the PS4, its design template, and its staff. In some respects, it’s gone too far, but the results are undeniably spectacular and this is the studio’s best game yet.

  • Peerless world and character building
  • Inventive and varied action
  • A surprising and gripping story
  • Too much reliance on extreme violence
5 / 5
Version tested
PlayStation 4 Pro
