The Last Of Us Left Behind Review
Posted: 7 weeks ago, last updated 5 days ago.
Left Behind is a set of substantial additional chapters that flesh out the story of the first Last of Us game. We get to play as Ellie as a younger child, learning about her fears, relationships and the events leading up to her meeting Joel. We also get to see more of the period in the game where Joel is hurt and needs Ellie's care.
Although easy to overlook, as this is seen as simple additional content by many, Left Behind is actually a compelling experience in its own right. It's important that you have played the first game, but when you have Left Behind offers important parts of the story that shed new light on the main characters.
You can purchase the game as extra content for The Last of Us, or as Left Behind a stand alone game.
