Our PlayStation lead Jennifer Locke wrote that "I can't say that The Last of Us Part II is better than its predecessor. I might be comfortable saying it's just as good in its own, different ways. It's certainly going to be divisive, but I don't think Naughty Dog minds that. As one character says, if they had a chance to do it all over again in the exact same way, they would."
