The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered Criticisms
The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered announced to be released again for PS5, meanwhile, some fans are not happy with that version. The first criticisms that fans shared are differences between the first version of the game and Remastered.
The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered releases on January 19th and costs $50 for new fans or $10 for those who already own the 2020 version. Meanwhile, fans are excited for the next The Last of Us game, that’s why they were mad about Remastered version too. Regarding this, developer explained what makes The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered worth its price.
In the interview with VGC, The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered Director Matthew Gallant was asked what he thinks about backlash regarding the game. He explained, “I don’t understand some of the consternation about what The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered offers. It’s the best way to play The Last of Us Part 2, if you’re a new PlayStation owner and new to the franchise we want to get you the best experience with all the hardware features on a PS5 native version of the game.”
The most exciting feature of The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered is its new No Return mode, a roguelike twist to the popular story based game. This mode will be about surviving in the different stages as long as you can. This mode will also feature challanges for players and these challenges will give rewards of course. This extensive new mode is probably one of Naughty Dog’s main justifications for releasing the remastered title.
The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered also features three new levels that were cut from the original game. These levels are quite brief compared to the ones that shipped with the original title, but they all shine additional light on Ellie’s emotionally complex story.
This version also features increased graphic quality and it’s considered to be one of the best looking games on PS5. It will also support full PS5 DualSense controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive trigger features.
