The Last of Us Remastered VS The Last of Us Part II comparison

If you compare the first and second part of The Last of Us series, I have to admit that the story of the first game is a little better, however, if you look at the other segments of this game, then I can definitely say that The Last of Us Part II is the number one game so far. The graphical representation of the environment and character seems very impressive and realistic, since the game came out recently, graphically it is one of the best games so far. The mechanics of combat, the way enemies communicate, the intelligence of enemies, definitely something never seen before in the world of gaming. Currently, there is only a story mode of the game, but it is not excluded in the future that Naughty Dog will release certain downloadable contents to the game.
