We said in our The Last of Us review: "The Last of Us is a remarkable achievement, and one of those rare games that you never want to end as you approach the finale. It tells a moving story that will linger in your mind long after the credits have rolled, but never loses sight of the fact that it's a video game, not a film. It's a masterful marriage of storytelling and game design, and easily Naughty Dog's finest moment."
In our Animal Crossing: New Leaf review we said the game is "an essential purchase for 3DS owners needing to unwind" and "a game you'll always make sure to have on you".
