Here's What Players Hate the Most in 'The Last of Us 2'

The Last of Us Part 2 is undoubtedly Naughty Dog’s biggest project yet. People have been waiting for the game ever since its announcement. Unfortunately, the game opened to mixed reviews and now, many from the fan base have expressed their displeasure with the game’s storyline.









Let us warn you about the potential Spoiler Alert first. Do not read further if you plan on playing the game after this.


Why are fans mad at The last of Us Part 2?


The story of the game is set five years after the original title ‘The Last of Us‘. Players control Ellie and will go about exploring and completing objectives in the post-apocalyptic United States. The action-adventure title is more of a survival thriller with an array of weapons and stealth moments to defend yourself against the mutated enemies.




Several players disliked the story due to a couple of incidents. Players are very fond of the two main characters of the game; Joel and Ellie. In the very first half of the game, Joel is brutally killed by Abby. The loss of a fan-favorite character has certainly enraged the fans. Abby is the daughter of the Firefly surgeon whom Joel had killed trying to rescue Ellie. Players complained about the narrative and how the story unfolded.




Did Naughty Dog change too much?


Some were unhappy about a particular change in the game. The game’s trailer showed Ellie being grabbed from behind by a character who was revealed to be Joel. However, in the game, that character turned out to be Ellie’s friend Jesse. This wasn’t taken well by fans and they are blaming Naughty Dog for false news. As if Joel’s death wasn’t disappointing enough, Abby, the new protagonist, kills off Jessie as well.







The fans also blamed Naughty Dog for making Joel careless in the game. The character in the first part was portrayed as someone who is cautious and vigilant. The sequel seems to have forgotten that part.
