There's no denying that Sony has done well with the PlayStation 4. From the get go, the console manufacturer opted to focus its greatest attention on games – more specifically console exclusives. Over the last 7 years, this has paid off in spades. Even so, PlayStation has appeared to once again outdo itself, as The Last of Us Part II has officially become the highest rated PlayStation exclusive of all time.
Though The Last of Us Part II is set to release on the 19th of June, the review embargoes were finally lifted earlier today, meaning that critics are now allowed to give their thoughts on the game. It would seem as though they have nothing but praise for the upcoming Naughty Dog title, as the game received a Metacritic score of 96.
This makes The Last of Us Part II the highest rated PlayStation 4 exclusive, and the third highest rated PS4 game in general – only behind GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 (both of which received a 97). Even more impressive however is the fact that it is tied as the highest rated PlayStation exclusive ever.
The Last of Us Part I released roughly 5 months prior to the launch of the PlayStation 4, and served as a swansong for the PlayStation 3. Now, 7 years later, with the impending release of the PlayStation 5 at the end of the year, it would appear as though Naughty Dog have done it again, ending this generation with what is posited to be one of the best games of all time. Hopefully come the release of the game on the 19th of June, fans will feel the same.
