Remember when Blu-ray first came out? I was blown away by HD. For the first ten minutes of every movie I watched I was bedazzled. But then I would just sort of forget about the high resolution and just... watch the movie. That's exactly how I feel about The Last of Us: Remastered.
Seriously, the upgrade is noticeable. I watched a friend compare the PS3 and the PS4 version side-by-side. The difference is massive when you see it with your own eyes, but you won't be playing them side-by-side. You'll just be playing it. The exact same game. And after a while you'll take the 60 frames-per-second/1080p resolution and you'll just be playing The Last of Us again.
Which, in itself, is hardly a problem. The Last of Us is a great video game and this is as good an excuse as any to play through one of 2013's best releases. The addition of the DLC was practically mandatory, but remains useful for plebs like me who haven't played through it yet.
I'd say that if you haven't played The Last of Us? Then this remastered version is an absolute must buy. If you already own it on PS3? I'm not sure the upgrade is really worthwhile. This isn't a 'remastering' on the level of, say, Wind Waker HD on the Wii U. That's just my view.
