Favourite game...wait, that's not enough. Favourite piece of media I've ever experienced in my life. It's everything I've ever wanted from games - unforgettable story and characters, depressing atmosphere that cannot be matched and nearly perfect gameplay with amazing combat mechanics. Even though the game could be overwhelming I haven't played anything so replayable in years. I finished the game 4 times and I still want more!


I have no idea how to review this game it has its flaws but they're weird flaws that I don't really know if they're flaws in the "this is a 4/5 because ____" but yea good game


uma experiência única, sabe mexer com suas emoções e percepções, talvez o jogo que mais mexeu comigo


Absolutely rare when a sequel tops the original, I’ve never experienced anything like this. This game was too perfect and the new characters were just as amazing as Joel and Ellie. Graphics were stellar. Too bad it has such a shitty fan base.

Ludonarrative dissonance literally kills the ending of this game completely. If the gameplay didn’t force you to be a murderous maniac for its entirety then I might have understood why Ellie decided to let Abby go.

I honestly support all the other story elements and risks that were took, the gameplay was satisfying, if not repetitive at times, and the acting was impeccable. Just disappointing that the ending ruins so much.



+ Incredible visuals
+ Industry leading performance capture
+ Gameplay greatly enhanced
+ Larger, more dynamic play spaces
+ Doesn't play it safe

- Messy story
- Way too long; poor pacing
- "look but don't touch" gameplay philosophy
