You knew this poll was coming, didn't you? The Last of Us: Part II released today -- that's the 19th June 2020 at the time of writing -- and we want to know if you've snapped it up. We've been waiting a long, long time for this one. The PS4 sequel was first announced all the way back in December 2016, and now -- after multiple delays, it should be noted -- it's finally here.
If you did nab yourself a copy, be sure to give our massive The Last of Us 2 guide resource a look, especially if you need help with anything.
As always, have your say in our poll, and then give us a hype check in the comments section below.
No. It's not on my radar, to be honest.
I cheated a little and voted “I bought it” because I know my kids bought it for me for Father’s Day. I can’t wait to play it, and I have amazing kids. I get TLOU 2 instead of a tie!
I pre-ordered it, first game i've pre-ordered (possibly) this generation and thank god i did because streamers and reviewers of the game on twitter seem to have no care in the world about giving away too much information and spoiling moments.
I cant help but think if i didnt buy it now id know everything about it by the end of month, without even playing it.
Yep. I've played 7 minutes of it. 0/10.
Holding out on this one, seems like between all the hype and all the hate it will be at least a month before people start talking about it rationally and I can decide whether to buy it, borrow it, or wait for the 4k PS5 version.
Where's the option of, "I want to play it but my PS4 fan is so loud I'm afraid it'll ruin the experience"?
I had it pre-ordered but cancelled it due to amazons inability to deliver a preordered game on release day So I got it at my local retailer one day earlier xD
Been playing most of the day and as a gamer for 34 years, all i can say is wow. I just can't believe what has been achieved here on the hardware its running on. The facial animation on the characters is astounding. This also has to be some of the best water shaders ive ever seen in a game. All what ive seen today has been simply breath taking and i know ive not even started to get into this game yet. On a side note, its also made me jump out of my skin twice already and a game hasn't done that in many years 😂😂👍🏻 Love it.
Yeah had it pre-ordered a couple weeks back. Had a cheeky got at midnight and been playing it on and off today. Had my first 'this is awesome' moment just now. Great stuff so far.
@Westernwolf4 I also got it for Father’s Day, I however wasn’t forced to wait for it lol. That’s gotta be torture 😂
I'm not interested in the story so that a No for me but this is cool:
@keihtg It's not been too bad so far. Noticed it was a lot louder during parts of God Of War and Red Dead.
I do usually wear headphones mind.
I'm glad I did. At long last finally a competitor for RDRII's horses in terms of realism. Both games are pretty similar in graphics art style.
I brought it yesterday and downloaded yesterday also, been playing from this morning until the afternoon. Have to agree the graphics are amazing, and the animation's.
@Bagshot A couple of quid? The menu screen itself is worth more than that!
Not my cup of tea. I didn't really enjoy the original. I'm happy for everyone else though!
@TheArt Yes and both are grown-up games made for grown-ups developed by two of the greatest companies out there, arguably the top two.
With this level of success it doesn't half seem to attract a lot of negative comments. Anyone would think neither Rockstar nor Naughty Dog know what they're doing.
I pre-ordered a while back from The Game Collection. They promptly posted it first class yesterday morning but Royal Mail have decided first class is 2 days for me it seems. Oh well, hopefully it gets here fairly early tomorrow.
I'm so happy to see the "Yeah, I bought it" option!
Just arrived! I wish I could say I like this steelbook a little more, but ya'know, can't win 'em all. Expecting to get ZERO sleep tonight... Woo-hoo!
I haven't bought it yet. I do need to make a Target run later today, so I will hopefully be picking it up while I am there (assuming it's in stock).
Yep, normally very patient but the last one is a masterpiece. The Mrs put the disc in so the day 1 patch installed, just waiting for my daughter to go to bed and its time to get started!!
I have such a big backlog (includingTLOU1 DLC) that I will just wait until a big price drop (and news about how Sony will handle any possible improvements for this and GoT on PS5, don’t want to buy this just to see a paid-for definitive PS5 edition announced in January or February.)
Tis a magnificent game!
Had it pre ordered for delivery and it arrived at 9am!! DPD are in the good books now! About 4 hours in and i am not disappointed, its fantastic! Loving the little easter eggs as well.
Shall get it at a later date for sure. Personally I'm not the biggest fan of Naughty Dog (blasphemy here I know). So I tend to play the game once and then only maybe come back to them a few years later. Shall definitely pick it up at one point mind you.
Bought it about an hour ago and waiting for it to download, can't wait to play it
Not for me. The first one lost me about the 8-10 hours mark and ive tried numerous time to play it over again. Will wait for GoT. Much more my style of game.
I may however watch someone go through it on youtube sometime.
@A356852 your comment gets 2/10, not sure why you'd want to tell someone they're pathetic for not liking or even not wanting to play the game, it's just one game
@BrotherFilmriss got the special edition from amazon today...
Have such a backlog at the moment, but I will pick it up down the line.
@MarcG420 It is a little bit of a bummer to wait until Sunday, but the kids knew I really wanted this and wanted to get it for me. Two days wait is worth not spoiling the thoughtful “surprise”. My wife only told me because I was about to preorder!
I hope that you are enjoying the game, and that you enjoy your weekend!
@A356852 What haters? You mean people that voted they don't want it? I guess you must love every piece of media ever made, then? Otherwise, the same could be said for you anytime you said you didn't like or want something.
Fantastic so far!
@Westernwolf4 my kids got me Desperados 3
@Jayofmaya pretty obvious he means the haters that are review bombing it a mere 18hrs into its release. its sad and pathetic 😂
I'll pick it up at a later date I'm looking forward to GoT more so I'm in no rush to pick up last of us 2 until a price drop
@supergurr Cool! I want to play that too. Let us know what you think!
Yep but for some reason it keeps failing to install. Only time I've had this on PS4 (or on anything, actually). I have 366GB free. I've restarted and it doesn't help.
Had it pre ordered. I'm a few hours in and 😲 I won't say anymore other than seriously, buy and play this game asap guys.
Unfortunately, this is the only gripe I have with the game. My PRO is louder than ever. I can sometimes hear it with my headphones on. It's bearable, but that's not saying much.
Not yet.but i will soon.word up son
@Westernwolf4 oh I understand for sure! I buy my games digital because I game share with a buddy so my wife just let me scratch the codes off the two fifty dollar the psn cards to preorder the game before she wraps them for me to open on Sunday. My kids are 2 1/2 and 15 months so they’re not going to know anything is amiss with the cards already being scratched when I open them 😂. Will be harder to do when they’re older lol.
Edit: and yes I’m having a great weekend and I am spending every second I can of it playing. Not nearly as much as I’d like to 😂. Enjoy it when you get it it’s superb so far!
@supergurr. Desparadoes 3 is pretty good.its a good game.word up son
No, though I think it does look like a remarkably well crafted game. I'm just playing video games more for a bit of escapism at the moment. I'm replaying Saits Row 4 as was on sale, was enjoying Snow Runner (before the recent patch ruined the graphics on base PS4...). I thought the first game was great, will intended to play this one down the line.
May get it at some point. But then again I may not because I’m sick of Naughty Dog’s hypocrisy and bs. I can’t explain the hypocrisy without giving away spoilers.
@gollumb82 Even the Pro is loud? Geez! I have the base unit (my 2nd one) and woulda thought a Pro could handle all games no problem.
Sounds like I'll have to hold out for the PS5 before I play this one!
I ordered the steel book edition (which is exclusive to amazon in Germany) and amazon moved the delivery date to june 23rd :-/
Downloaded it last night but haven’t played it yet. Hope to finish it this weekend.
Not yet but I will
I guess it's worth playing if you're a fan of ND or the franchise, but I will try to get a PS5 around Christmas and replay this masterpiece in quiet (hopefully).
Had it pre-ordered a couple weeks back. Put 8 hours now into it and its so good.
@MarcG420 Fantastic to hear the game is good so far! And remember-as your kids get a little older, gaming is a fantastic way to bond/spend quality time. My kids had great fun destroying their Dad at Mario Kart all yesterday evening, for example.
You don't have to buy this game but the problem lies with people giving low reviews when they haven't t even played it nor intend to.
If it's not for you then fine (and for the record whilst I enjoyed the first one I didn't love it as much as others did) but is it really deserving of this much animosity?
I don't think so and two hours or so in I think it's absolutely sensational. I'm a Spurs fan but I think I'd rather be playing this game then watching them later tonight!
No. I'm just not a big fan of post-apocalyptic survival games in general.
Haven't got it yet, mainly because I'm super busy and I want to see what Sony's PS5 plans are for TLoU2 and Ghost of Tsushima before taking the plunge. I'll get both, and probably won't want for GoT.
Definitely will get it, as I love Naughty Dog. I did however buy The Last of Us Remastered for $10, as I wanted to play the PS4 version. And I forgot most of the story as it's been many years.
@Incarna I have a similar policy, but my budget is a maximum of £30 per game. And to be honest, I haven’t paid over £20 for a game in a couple years.
It means I will be waiting until next year to play this, but money is tight.
I would argue that there are games worth more money though. I have put 1,000+ hours into some games (much more in World of Warcraft and the like) so paying £45 for 1,000 hours is a lot cheaper than paying £10 for 20 hours.
About 5-6 hours in and finding it absolutely incredible. Better than I'd hoped, and much more enjoyable than I first feared after hearing and seeing leaks.
The best way I could describe it is it's The Last of Us, Part 2. Genuinely, it equals or surpasses the original in every way you could wish.
@get2sammyb I'll never doubt you again! (not that I really doubted the review score in the first place tbh though).
I had it pre-ordered since last year. I've seen the scene that everyone seemed so upset about and yeah, my heart sank, but I'm still playing. It's good so far.
However everywhere on the internet right now seems to be celebrating the low user scores. Most of which are even saying "these are the TRUE and HONEST reviews".
I feel sad for those people. Especially when the obvious ones get removed in a few days time.
50 + 8 + 17 + 10 + 13 % = 98% where are those 2%? ☺️
Not interested yet, didn't even played part1. It it so deep in my backlog...
Yes.. Was going to buy it today but pre ordered 2 days ago. Its good 😊
I'll get this when it's cheap as chips. Still playing life of black tiger at the moment.
Since they’re asking I’ve got to say no. The first game ended perfectly. There’s no way part 2 can improve on it.
I do hope this is the last one, I don't want to see a sequel, prequel or side story. I looked at the spoilers but I still bought it and will play it and platinum it. However I am doing it with the expectation that we will never see anything related to TLOU again.
I hope Naughty Dog moves on from these type of games and does something else. It could be fps, racing, platformer, pure horror... anything that isn't this formula that started with Uncharted.
I have zero interest in "The Last of Us" series. Naughty Dog is the most overrated developer in the history of gaming
@Col_McCafferty Yep they're indeed mature games not meant for speedrun type of gamers. Yea and those 2 Devs are top 2 in my book and they sure do attract negative comments from people who don't know what they want and just want to find something to whine about, that I don't pay attention to.
Dunno whats to not like or love about it if im honest but there you go.
I'll wait for the PS5 version
Had it pre-ordered and so far I’m loving every minute of it.
Good joke mate.
@Col_McCafferty glad I wasn’t alone on that thought.
At £55 no way i will bite at £8:99 not like it is going to date or owt.
Ehhh, I think playing Last of Us was a good experience, but I didn't enjoy the gameplay enough to make me care for another game with the same sort of gameplay. Also, I really did not like the ending to the first one (I felt like it made the journey worthless), so the story is not a draw for me. To be fair, I got the game free with my PS4 ages ago, so I guess the problem also is I don't feel like it is worth the launch price.
...Maybe when the game is cheaper I'll have another think about it.
There was no 'i wait for the ps5 remaster' choice...but hey i think most games i played from start to end were by ND or Nintendo. Both revolutionized gaming in their own ways. So i got high hopes for it...im just afraid its too grim, i thought TLOU was already a bit over the edge at times...
Yes, I preordered it right after finishing the first one last weekend and went through Left Behind midweek. Played 2 hours last night to get the tutorial parts out of the way. Going to try to see if I can possibly finish it this weekend because I can't really open Youtube without the suggestions hinting at things.
Don't care about the last of us
Oh man.... Hahahaha... I don't think I'm ever gonna buy this game. I don't have the stomach for it.
Yep... UPS just showed up with my Amazon Pre-order 😀
@Westernwolf4 don't play it with your children in thr room!
I absolutely adore The Last of Us but have no intention of ever playing Part II.
I wasn't remotely excited when it was originally announced, just disappointed. In my eyes a sequel is utterly unnecessary and lessens the weight of the original.
A bit like the Matrix sequels, know when to stop.
So far, this game is absolutely incredible. The level of depth and detail to the characters and world is phenomenal. The emotional beats are all there, too, with top notch writing and acting to boot. The banter between characters (a wonderful Naughty Dog trait) is also fantastic. I'm seriously blown away by this game, and it's somehow surpassing the first one which I thought would be an impossible feat.
Hi there fellow gamers. But of course I bought it. I had it pre-ordered the moment I could. Played 6 hours and 40 something minutes and I´m blown away. Naughty Dog team has done it again. The characters, the animations, the world they envisioned it is so beautiful and gnarly. And that oppening hours though...... man. oh man. BRUTAL. Currently fighting a bunch of clickers in a dark place. Can´t wait to go back at it again. Cheers and happy gaming to us all
@daveofduncan Oh, that is sadly a standard these days. Does anyone even care what metacritic says anymore? It's so unreliable lol
I remember coming here, mostly as a lurker to be honest, to share a mutual enjoyment of videogames, now the comments are full of such negativity.
My preorder came this morning so I was faced with working from home knowing it was sat on my ps4 hardrive, 4pm couldnt come quickly enough for me. 4 hours in and I am frankly staggered that something this dazzling is possible from this generation of consoles.
I am also dying for my pals to play so I can discuss it with someone.
I’m still waiting for the 4 GB update to be finished my hamster in a wheel Internet keeps taking a break. But it won’t be long!
@dudewithcioc Very good advice! 😃
My oldest would probably be ok playing TLOU. But my youngest is why Dad usually only fires up the PS4 after 9pm. My little son plays Dreams and some Lego games on the PS4-everything else is off limits until he is older!
I cancelled my preorder on the collectors edition today. I decided to spoil myself to the "scene" and the ending. I adamantly loved the first game, this seems like a slap on the face. I'm glad they leaked part of the game. Saved me money.
Saw the leaks. I'll wait till it's free on PS+.
This is one game I wish I had a PS4 for.
@chadders nice!! Will be playing it in a few hours, can't wait
@Col_McCafferty Ya, why are people hating on this game?
Massive fan of first game so this was at the top of my list a couple of months ago, but after familiarising myself with the leaks (I can't resist spoilers) and discovering that they were most likely true, I realised the sequel wasn't something I ever wanna play; Skill Up's honest and fair review (imho) the other week essentially confirmed all the stuff which had put me off to be true and listed more besides. However, I'm very happy for all those on here who have a great time playing this game over the next few weeks or so 😃 The sequel's just not for me.
Was never into zombie stuff. I'll play it when its inevitable given away on plus
I love the first game and will be buying this. The only thing is the price. I'm gaming a long time and if I've learned anything, it is to wait for a sale. I really want it though.
Lol at all the people who claim to have no interest in the game but are here commenting!!
Nope. I tried to force myself through the original but it just wasn't able to sustain my interest, so I'm giving this a pass.
@Lovespuds Discuss it on here mate. I'm already blown away by it and I'm only a few hours in.
This game ain't for the faint of heart!
@Col_McCafferty couldn’t agree more, I’m staggered by how much work has gone into this game, like you I’m only a few hours in too!
@Lovespuds I know what you mean it looks amazing, definitely a step up in the graphics department! I was at work today so had to wait till I got home to download as I bought the physical edition, must have been torture knowing it was sat waiting for you!
I just finished days gone before this and after playing a few hours I am absolutely amazed. I mean this game makes days gone look like a ps2 game and I thought that game looked and played great. The little details are amazing. Like when ellie tunes the guitar. The tuning head actually turns and you see the string tighten. I mean who does that lol. Superb
Where's the Push Square article regarding metacritic's users scores?
I preordered it, I saw the leaks but decided that it was best for me to still play it myself and make up my own mind. I've seen it all in context and most of the leaks are confirmed true but it's written well IMO and I haven't been disappointed one bit.
@Oscarjpc There is an older article about it getting review bombed.
I had it pre-ordered on the PS store, played around 5 hours. I'm enjoying it so far, I'd give it an 8/10 at this point. The controls & gameplay are a bit stiff & the characters aren't grabbing me yet. But still decent, I won't be too judgemental until I've finished it though.
@zimbogamer Days Gone is a really good game, a proper 8/10 and I look forward to the sequel.
This is a level or two.above, in the same league as Red Dead Redemption 2. Indeed it has a real feel of a Western about it.
One thing Days Gone does have on TLoU 2 is the bike. By the end mine looked like something out of Mad Max!
Yes, I have one question are there giraffes, he a bit disappointed if not!
@Cloud39472 Yes, I found it. Thanks, bro.
Of course, had it pre-ordered since Gamestop started taking them. Don't care for the story so far but the gameplay is excellent and wow, what a looker. I can't imagine there will be many PS5 games, at least early on, that impress me much more visually than this game has and I'm still using a 1080p, non-HDR tv. Very impressive but two companies in this industry that nail visuals every time are Naughty Dog and Guerrilla.
@Oscarjpc No worries man, I should've found the link for you but I kinda forgot XD
I am gobsmacked at the epic-ness of the drama 😂
I have never played anything this tense before, it seems even more oppressive that the 1st game. I cannot wait to dive back in tomorrow.
Have a great weekend and happy gaming chief.
As soon as my copy dropped on the doormat I installed it...longest days work ever 😂
Hope you enjoy it as much as anticipated squire, for my part, I am utterly invested in the story and cannot believe how it looks, sounds and plays. I am truly blown away.
Have a cracking weekend chief.
What is the point of the second disc if it is not used to install, if the game is seeing it when playing how is the digital.version same size?
There's depictions of sex in this game, when will sony be censoring this game like the recently released terminator game? Or Aokana? Or Omega labrynth life? Or mary shelter 2? Soon right? They will censor soon right?
I've had mine pre-ordered for a while, got it delivered to a local convenience store and missed getting there before they shut.
I'll pick it up tomorrow, despite the stories I'm still hyped for the game, especially given the mechanics that Naughty Dog have out into the game.
Got Ghost of Tsushima pre-ordered too, both games look awesome, I can't wait to play both.
@Col_McCafferty I actually really enjoyed days gone. I am one trophy away from the platinum but its definitely a step below this. It's also a different game. Where as in that game I feel like I can take a horde on with ease. This game makes me want to rather sneak around and save ammo
Tell me you are being sarcastic.
I've had it on pre-order and my copy will sit on my shelf for a while since there's some other games that are higher priority on my list.
I was planning on buying it later on, but now I'm not so sure. From what I understand, the game's story seems almost completely detached from the first game, and botches many potential avenues the first game set up (both story and gameplay wise) in favour of a simple revenge story, to the point where I have to wonder why this sequel was made in the first place.
I might still end up getting it later, when the price has dropped a bit, but for now, I can't say that's a certainty.
Where is the I'll buy used to teach someone not to try and preach to me button? For someone who advocates peace and love he makes a games basically saying we are just vengeful pricks. I for one believe people can change but hey who am I. Oh I'm the guy saying you won't see any of my money for this type of game thats right. I don't care if the ps4 shoots friggin rainbows they wouldn't see my coin.
Never had any interest
Oh. I threw up in my mouth. I was curious, and I've seen things I can't unsee... You have reminded me of it now, and because of that I have sworn off sex forever.
But no, they're not censoring it, because it's a first party studio and not a small operation that they can bully.
@Chryssy75 Me, sarcastic? Never.
@keihtg noise cancelling headphones
@Lovespuds i know what you mean the day just seemed to drag, even the week was way too long
Yeah the story for me so far is great, i can't wait to get back into it today. I agree the sound is top notch, as is the voice acting. looking forward to discussing this more the further i get into it
You have a great weekend to my friend
@BrotherFilmriss must be a locale thing. it was royal mail that delivered my copy of the SE.
I played until 5am this morning, glad i played pre and 1 before to get into mode. Only down side is the jet engine PS4Pro. Right back to then!
About 5hrs in so far, loving it so far, first couple of hrs was thinking I might not like it as much, thought I might have hyped myself a bit too much but now arrived in Seattle things starting to get good. Was the same with the first one, didn't click with me until just after the capitol building then everything just clicked, going to be playing this all weekend
"I didn't see any instructions that said you are only allowed to vote / comment"
But you have a problem with my comment 😂😂😂.
3 hours in and its sensational!! Incredible work from the dogs
Nah. The first game had a good story, but the gameplay was poor. So I'm not really interested.
I'll buy it eventually, but I'm not in a hurry.
Absolutely zero interest. The appeal is totally lost on me. I hate zombies.
But they're infected.. With mushrooms... Totally different
@Westernwolf4 same lol.
@Ralizah so why did you come on this post?
@Westernwolf4 hope you and your kids are enjoying it
@ApostateMage God of war and spider man 0 out of 10
@sonicmeerkat you be ok seeing two guys doing it yet you love seeing two women do it all the time
"Poll: Did You Buy The Last of Us 2?"
Do people only get to answer if it's in the affirmative?
I did pick it up. I played about 12 hours of it so far and wow amazing. I have not played a game with so much emotions and it is great. The first game was definitely one of my favorite games but this games takes everything about tlou and adds to it. The characters, the graphics and the game play. The world is unbelievably detailed. Thank you naughty dog for not a game but an experience. This is definitely game of the year.
Pre ordered since last year 😎 played about 9 hours so far 👍😎
No, just got a Switch recently and besides that I had also been burning through the Dark Souls trilogy again. I'm also not sure that the original ever even needed a sequel to begin with. It kind of ended perfectly. That being said, I will buy it eventually, assuming we see something of at least a ten or fifteen pound price drop.
Played 2 hours on a friends console. Looks amazing but I got bored and went on a different game. I don't think I'll be buying it anytime soon.
@keihtg I almost always use headphones while playing and am shocked, when I take them off and realize just how much noise the system makes. So, my advice is, try using headphones. 😉
I cancelled my collector's edition preorder after the leaks emerged. After watching and reading a bunch of reviews I don't regret that decision. The story would have pissed me off way too much. I'm not paying for that
I pre ordered the last of us console for 2 reasons I would have got the game and wanted to get a better experience so got the ps4 pro the other reason I can't wait to play ghost of tsushima and want to play this the best i will be able to and that's on the ps4 pro I would recommend last of us 2 but if you can only get one game I would go for ghost of tsushima I'm not sure I'll get anything else until ps5 comes out then start from there
@Taylorzombie you seem to feel the need to reply to everyone who disagrees with you. Are you really so insecure about your purchase ?
I'm not really interested in this game. I might buy the game if it receives a big price cut in the future.
@rjejr I'm waiting for the PS5 before I get it. Probably wait until next year, as I'm sure they will have a remastered edition again like TLOU did on PS4 shortly after that system released.
@Constable_What I do agree feeling up kids and groping women should be allowed. 😆 And Capcom is a really small company.
@zeppray That is a small patch this is including the photomode?
4 gig I believe so! Great game!
@Flaming_Kaiser Nothing like that happens in the Terminator game, or any of those games @sonicmeerkat mentioned, and Capcom didn't develop any of those games, man.
We weren't talking about what you're talking about, so if you're gonna butt in next time. Have your facts straight please.
You said no censorship in a big DMC is a big game. The smaller games is mostly feeling up women that look like kids. And the obscure Japanese games do have those things.
@sonicmeerkat You mean feeling/rubbing up women tits, touching under aged girls yeah that shocking. And if you go on rant about Sony dont forget MS has the same policies.
@Flaming_Kaiser are you still talking? Look outside of your circle jerk, buddy and you'll find plenty of people who hate the game. And sure there will be some bigots who are just hating on it for the inclusion of LGBT characters, but the vast majority are people who have real issues with the story and NDs attitude overall. As for me having better things to do, you're replying to me, sweetie. What does that say about you?
@Ralizah they should been a poll about if you guy's want kratos to be gay
@Kafkaesque since you guy's hate the game why do you guy's keep coming on the posts and continue to whine and complain?
@Taylorzombie I'm sure you'd be delighted with the rewriting of canon for some arbitrary sense of "muhhh diversity", but quite frankly I couldn't care less if Kratos was gay. As for why I comment on articles about the game, why do you care?
@Flaming_Kaiser Do you think the people in video games are real? Or that Microsoft doing something bad is a good justification for sony doing the same?
I will try to understand your rationale.
@Kafkaesque cause you guy's keep talking trash about the game every time a new post is posted like are y'all bored or just trolling?
