The Last of Us: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Ben Dowell Times (UK) While the special effects are undeniably top-notch, this nine-part series was a hit that reached way beyond its gaming fanbase in large part due to the crisp, emotional storytelling, particularly with its two-handers. Mar 18, 2023 Full Review The Last of Us: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Phillip Maciak The New Republic Episode by episode, there’s a lot to recommend The Last of Us. Feb 24, 2023 Full Review The Last of Us: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Nina Metz Chicago Tribune I like that The Last of Us isn’t consumed with telling stories about the powerful but instead is focused on regular people who are just trying to make it through this mess. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 22, 2023 Full Review The Last of Us: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Joonatan Itkonen Toisto.net At its best, the series strikes free from the growing pains that video game adaptations suffer from, and shows how rich and textured Druckmann’s world can be. Rated: 3/5 Jul 3, 2024 Full Review The Last of Us: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Nicolás Medina Montevideo Portal / Latido Beat By not being able to emulate the interactive capacity between the series audience and gamers, The Last of Us sought to generate a phenomenon and a series of transmedia experiences that keep viewers engaged to the show. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 8/10 Dec 19, 2023 Full Review The Last of Us: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Mini Anthikad-Chhibber The Hindu However good the music (Gustavo Santaolalla, who also scored the game), sets, and cinematography are — and they are exceptional — the cast and writing are even better Aug 27, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member i love the original last of us series, this was so well acted and filmed, it did the series so much justice ^^. i remember being apprehensive about Ellie's casting because i grew up watching the worst witch so seeing Bella Ramsey do a role so vastly to Mildred was like a huge ? in my brain but they totally did an awesome job as Ellie!! Pedro Pascal was such an awesome Joel as well, i know they both got along on set but i you could tell through their acting that they had a lot of chemistry you know, two amazing actors who did an awesome job in an awesome series (≧◡≦) Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/29/24 Full Review Rafael C Faithful adaptation! With great editing and performances, however, it loses some momentum with accelerated developments and others slower throughout the season's storyline and in some episodes. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/03/24 Full Review Mark O Thoroughly enjoyed it. Better than the walking dead in my opinion Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/23/24 Full Review Audience Member One of the best game adaptation series ever, along with Twisted Metal and Fallout. Can't wait for season 2 and 3. Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/23/24 Full Review Juan R Excelente adaptación, personajes y actuaciones muy solidas. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/21/24 Full Review Audience Member One of the best video game adaptations. It is entertaining and the flow of the show is engaging.
