Digital Spy (Feb 12, 2014)
With excellent characters, emotionally charged storytelling and tense action set-pieces, deciding whether or not to revisit Naughty Dog's stunning game world really is a no-brainer.

The Guardian (Feb 17, 2014)
Left Behind does nothing new with The Last of Us' tense and exhilarating gameplay rhythm; you're always either in intense danger, or fearfully anticipating the next moment of intense danger. But it tells a different story, one that's more compact and more affecting for it, and it shows that Naughty Dog has serious emotional range. Rarely have I played anything as powerful.

Rely on Horror (Feb 17, 2014)
For $15, you’ll get one of the finest slices of entertainment available anywhere. The two hours it’ll take you to beat this is equivalent to the time you’ll spend watching an amazing film, leaving you with the sensation to revisit it time and time again. This is a gold standard for DLC moving forward, especially with most games putting out content that was initially locked in-game to begin with. Left Behind is unlike any other DLC you’ve played before. And if it wasn’t for the Ellie/Joel scenario being mixed in, then it would’ve been a perfect stand-alone experience.

Left Behind is worth the wait, worth every penny you spend on it, and worth the two-hour plus investment of time you put into playing it. It’s even worth playing The Last of Us in its entirety again before loading up Left Behind for the first time so you can get the most out of the atmosphere, gameplay, and connection to these deep characters.

Tout bon joueur doit vivre avec ses contradictions. On a beau râler sur la multiplication des DLC, il faut bien se rendre à l'évidence que certains contenus téléchargeables apportent une valeur ajoutée au jeu de base. C'est le cas de Left Behind qui vient éclairer des zones d'ombres de The Last of Us, mais qui a le bon goût de ne jamais tomber dans le voyeurisme facile. On passe ici davantage par la suggestion pour nous permettre de mieux comprendre le personnage d'Ellie, mais aussi de porter un nouveau regard sur l'ensemble de l'épopée que nous a fait vivre The Last of Us.

IGN (Feb 13, 2014)
Though fairly expensive and perhaps not as long as we could have hoped, Left Behind is a beautifully-realized foray back into the dangerous world Joel and Ellie inhabit in The Last of Us. With a bunch of collectibles to find, Trophies to earn, and memorable moments to experience, Left Behind is a must-play for fans of the original game. The context it gives alone is worth the price of admission. Just make sure you steel yourself for the revelations you’re about to uncover.

IGN Germany (Feb 14, 2014)
Left Behind gehört ohne Zweifel zu den besten Story-DLCs, die ich je gespielt habe, was unter anderem an der eindrucksvollen, emotionalen Freundschaft zwischen Ellie und Riley liegt, die man so in Spielen nur selten findet. Ebenso selten geschieht es, dass eine Geschichte so hervorragend funktioniert, obwohl ihr bereits von Anfang an wisst, wie es für alle Beteiligten enden wird. Allerdings zeigt gerade das, dass das Team von Naughty Dog sein Handwerk nicht nur versteht, sondern meisterlich umzusetzen weiß. Obwohl Left Behind den Anfang von Ellies Geschichte zeigt, ist der DLC ein würdiger Abschied von The Last of Us, den sich Fans nicht entgehen lassen sollten.

Polygon (Feb 14, 2014)
That sequence aside, Left Behind feels like an important step for Naughty Dog. It's aware of its own shortcomings and largely willing to focus on its strengths. It embraces the developer's impressive character development capabilities, and inches away from including elements that feel arbitrarily shoved in "because it's a game." Left Behind is small and quiet, but it's also confident in a way The Last of Us never quite achieved.

Inside Gaming (Feb 13, 2014)
Left Behind is a touching account of two young girls struggling to make sense of a world stripped of its humanity, and it is a tale worth exploring. Nevertheless there are moments the gameplay feels disjointed from the narrative, potentially pitting the overlapping stories at odds with one another. Admittedly, it’s wonderful to spend more time with Ellie, especially before her involvement with the Fireflies. It’s up to you if further character development is enough to bring you back to a fungus-infested America.

Game Front (Feb 17, 2014)
Left Behind manages to expand on Ellie’s character in fascinating ways, and even does something to recast and differently illuminate The Last of Us’ wonderful, ambiguous ending. It doesn’t need plot surprises to do it, because it’s full of character surprises. This is a package that manages to tell a new story within the threads of The Last of Us, and the overall tapestry is richer for having it.

Metro.co.uk (Feb 14, 2014)
Another masterful mix of interactive story and brutal action, and which despite the short running time still packs an emotional punch.

Tyvärr tar det slut på tok för fort. Faktum är att det tar slut när det känns som att expansionen verkligen kommer igång. Lite snopet, anser jag. 110 minuter tog det för mig att spela genom Left Behind på svårighetsgraden "Normal". Knappast katastrofalt jämfört med många andra nedladdningsbara expansioner men jag hade hoppats på minst en timme till. För dig som älskade huvudspelet är dock detta ett absolut måste. Naughty Dog bjuder på en detaljerad inblick Ellie som person och i slutändan var det underbart att få återvända till fjolårets överlägset bästa spel.

Riot Pixels (Mar 10, 2014)
Зря Naughty Dog не включила этот фрагмент в кампанию. Пусть рассказ слегка сбивает общий ритм, поставлен он с душой. Если вдруг решите заново пройти The Last of Us, переключитесь на DLC сразу после побега из университета – чтобы уж по порядку. Неожиданных открытий не будет – только эмоции.

Game Revolution (Feb 14, 2014)
Left Behind barely scratches the itch I’ve been hoping to claw at since I put the controller down last summer. It's a bite-sized extension of the characters and lives fans connected with so deeply. For everyone else, this season pass business feels like a bum deal. I can’t turn down more of a good thing, can you?

An enjoyable intriguing piece of DLC that doesn't add much to the almighty experience that was The Last Of Us.

Proposé en téléchargement sur le PlayStation Store de la PS3 pour 14,99€, The Last of Us : Left Behind contentera, malgré sa durée de vie limitée (deux heures), les fans du jeu de Naughty Dog. Evidemment destiné à ce public, ce DLC offre un nouvel éclairage sur le passé difficile et émouvant d'Ellie, permettant de mieux cerner ce personnage plus complexe qu'il n'y paraît... mais sans pour autant apporter de grandes révélations. Si les fondamentaux du jeu initial ne sont pas bouleversés non plus, ce contenu téléchargeable apporte quelques nouveautés de gameplay efficaces et bienvenues. Et avec une réalisation et une mise en scène toujours aussi maîtrisées, le studio offre aux joueurs un rapide mais savoureux retour dans le monde terrible de The Last of Us.

Level 7 (Feb 28, 2014)
The Last of Us: Left Behind är ett tillägg som fortsätter i samma spår som förra årets The Last of Us. Stridssystemet är tajt och produktionen imponerande. Däremot plågas äventyret av mycket utfyllnad och en historia som är mer ambitös än faktiskt bra. Det svagare kapitlet av de två i serien men värt en titt ifall du känner att du inte fick nog förra gången.
