The wizards over at Digital Foundry have prepared an exhaustive comparison between the about-to-be-released The Last of Us: Part I and previous iterations of that game, The Last of Us: Part II, and even the souped-up, pre-release version of The Last of Us shown at E3 2012.
The video clocks in at 50 minutes, and is likely to be the definitive piece of media on the subject. Whether or not The Last of Us needed a remake is a matter of personal preference, what is undeniable, however, is the technical marvel that Naughty Dog has achieved.
The entire thing is well worth a watch, especially if you are on the fence about double (or triple) dipping on this one. Digital Foundry notes that Naughty Dog appears to have remade every single asset from scratch, and the differences presented in this fashion are striking. Options like an unlocked framerate, when combined with a 120hz display using VRR, mean it’s possible to get above 60 FPS on PS5, and it remains stunning throughout.
