Naughty Dog’s upcoming PS3 exclusive, The Last of Us, is looking absolutely fantastic as a single player experience and now for the first time we get to see how the multiplayer portion will play out – and I’m very much in two minds about it.
It’s no surprise that the movement and aiming has taken a lot of cues from Uncharted and I have to say it’s starting to look a little dated. The stiff crouch movements and floaty aiming doesn’t match with the polish and hype that is surrounding this title.
But just as I was about to stop playing the video our hero hurdled a barrier and instantly swapped from bad shooting to beating the living daylights out of the enemy with planks and bare hands. That seamless swapping between shooting and fighting appeals to me. Hopefully all the actions aren’t simply canned and you can decide whether you are going to kick or punch the enemy.
What do you think? though, honestly – if you’re in this for the multiplayer, then you’re doing it wrong.
