A leaked document by Microsoft revealed the company’s opinion on Sony’s latest survival horror, The Last of Us: Part 2.
“Naughty Dog still can’t seem to make decent gun combat”
Nowadays, all companies conduct internal studies and reviews of all their competitors’ products. This rule also applies to gaming developing companies such as Microsoft. According to a leaked article, a group of developers from the Xbox Portfolio Team wrote a thorough review of The Last of Us: Part 2. In general, Microsoft’s team found the game pretty enjoyable, describing it as a perfect example for all narrative games. However, they really made fun of Naughty Dog’s combat system, stating that “Naughty Dog still can’t seem to make decent gun combat in any of their games, and this is no exception. Luckily for them it fits in with the game’s theme and pushes the player towards using stealth head-on.”
The review continues with a short mention about the weapon switching mechanic, complimenting that “not every team has the talent or money to produce a game like that”. Concluding, Microsoft believes that despite its simple combat system, The Last of Us: Part 2 remains one of the best exclusive titles for Playstation 4. Do you agree with Xbox’s opinion about the inferior Last of Us combat? Be sure to leave your answer in the comments below. Some days ago, another document was also leaked, revealing that Microsoft was considering reducing its royalties on Xbox software.
In other news, Neil Drucmann confirmed that the story outline for The Last of Us: Part 3 is complete and that Last of Us 2 Multiplayer will be worth the wait. Thanks for reading! If you enjoyed the article and want to support the site, feel free to throw a like at our official facebook page.
