    Yes that is a spoiler. We have a thread for that.

    Well done mate, so I'm the end ? I think you will score it 8/10...no make that 9/10??
    I think I'd probably give it a 9. It is very, very good. Not paced as well as the first, and the structure didn't quite work for me, though as I've said, I've no idea how I'd do it differently.

    Didn't find the ending as satisfying as the first game, but I'd be tempted to say I preferred the story of this one when it's all said and done; at the very least, there's a lot more going on! The first game had no fat, but I feel like for a sequel they needed to build the world out a bit, and I think they did that really well here.

    I'm near the end now I think after thinking I already came to the end an hour back. Bloody tense ride indeed.

    Damn - hate it when you just go a little further than expected (dropped off a balcony) and then can't get back... I just know that open window had a collectable inside.

    Dumb that a fence with a tarp that looks jumpable and certainly boostable is only one way...

    About 3.5 hours in, donít get much gaming time these days, and really enjoying it so far. So many little details, spending far too long mooching around :) the sound is something else..

    Finished last night, must be around 30+ hours. Itís a long game, really enjoyed it. Itís a must play. Is it better than the first 🤔 I had real issues with the last 10% of story in number 1, issues that I got over a bit with time. This one seems better balanced but the character progression is not quite as rich. Although there is a lot of story there, and the game goes all in, mostly they are in linear paths.

    I have been avoiding social media in fear of having this game spoiled for me. However I have picked up on that many people say the game is really bad or at least it goes bad after something happens.

    Can anyone tell me where it goes bad without spoiling it? I'm 25hrs in and so far it's been nothing but amazing, just done the bit where you're helping scars get medical supplies.

    Just wondering if I've gone past the bit where its bad or if I still have it to come. Starting to think there are an incredible amount of trolls hating on the game for no reason

    As a massive FFVII fan and the remake exceeding all my expectations TLOU2 has topped it, its possibly one of the finest games I've ever played.

    You're 25 hours in and you need someone to tell you if it's good or not?

    It's almost like you don't have to listen to the internet and independent thought is possible

    At the 26 hour point, it turns into a hybrid visual-novel/basketball sim. I think that was where it alienated a lot of people.

    I was just curious as to what everyone was throwing a tantrum over and what all the review bombing was about (wasn't sure if I've already passed that point). Not asking for someone tell me if the game is good.

    If I've already gone past something that makes the game bad then I can't take anyone seriously who claims the game to be bad. Naughty Dog have truly excelled themselves with this, raised the bar in many ways..

    There are 2 main sticking points causing a stir but if you're at 25 hours you're past them both.

    A month has passed and my gf and I are still playing. Still avoiding all manners of spoilers and such and having a great time.

    If youíve been playing over 10 hours Iíd think you are up to date with the hot topics bar the ending of course. I never saw the leaks but I believe itís fine.

    I did not like the first one, although I was glad I played it as it's an important game and I wanted to make my own mind up

    Is it safe to assume that I won't like this one either?

    Very similar, I wouldn't bother if you didn't like the first one.

    @retro74 If it helps, the first one is about 15 hours to complete, whereas this one is over 30.
