Kanobu (Jun 05, 2013)
The Last of Us — кульминация развития видеоигр на текущем этапе. Тот редкий случай, когда ты говоришь не «прошел игру», а «пережил все, что в игре». Бескомпромиссное высказывание невероятной силы, созданное невероятно талантливыми людьми. Эмоции, бережно собранные практически всеми возможными на данный момент выразительными средствами. Такого мы не увидим еще очень долго. И, тем не менее, надежда есть всегда.
Giant Bomb (Jun 05, 2013)
Naughty Dog throws out its own rule book and challenges players to survive a harrowing but thrilling journey through a world forever changed by death and destruction.
100 (Jul 04, 2013)
I feel like I’m not exaggerating when I say that The Last of Us is the pinnacle of the current generation of gaming, it is a perfect game, and if any video games should be considered art, it should be The Last of Us. If you have a PS3, this is an absolute must-buy.
Destructoid (Jun 05, 2013)
There is more to The Last of Us than just combat and "emotional" story tropes. To touch on its setpiece moments, to detail its beautiful changes in pace, would be to spoil too much. It cannot be said enough, however, that Naughty Dog's new best creation is complete, and when I say complete, I mean it to pay the highest of compliments. I do not want more from The Last of Us: I do not need more. As the last line was uttered and the credits ushered in the close, I was done. The Last of Us had achieved everything it needed to achieve in order to provide me with everything I wanted.
The Controller Online (Jun 17, 2013)
With an engrossing story and campaign, stunning visuals, and survival horror mixed perfectly with fast paced action, The Last of Us is a truly impressive package. This is before you even get to the fun and original multiplayer mode or the fact that the campaign delivers twice as much content as we are used to with this type of game. Naughty Dog picked a heck of a way to close out the console generation by making one of the most memorable games the PS3 has to offer.
Realm of Gaming (Sep 18, 2013)
The Last of Us is not a game you should consider playing, listen to others describe, read about in reviews or watch in previews. It is a game you must experience, because it is an experience. A fast-paced, character driven, fun, uplifting, depressing and altogether wonderful experience. The Last of Us is not only PlayStation 3's best game, it is the game of this generation.
Chip Power Play (Aug, 2013)
Das ist schon ansatzweise gemein, wie The Last of Us mit meinen Gefühlen spielt. Wenn ein Videospiel derart starke Emotionen hervorrufen kann, muss einem um die Zukunft des Mediums nicht bange sein. Die Story ist spannend, rührend und hat wunderbare Charaktere. Dazu kommen hochspannende Spielmomente mit garantierter Pulsfrequenz-Übertaktung: Zwischen blinden Clicker-Monstern umherzuschleichen oder einzelnen Plünderbanditen aufzulauern ist dank schwer berechenbarer (und schwer gefährlicher) Gegner ein gruseliger Nervenkitzel. Wesentlichen Anteil an der Adrenalin-Flut hat die preisverdächtige Soundkulisse, da stimmt vom Infizierten-Röcheln bis zur sparsamen Musik alles. Manche „wo geht's weiter?“-Suchaktion verdeutlicht die Grenzen der Schauplätze und ab dem dritten Kletterhilfe-Herbeigerücke ermüdet diese Idee ebenso wie das Schubladen-Abgeklapper der Ressourcensuche. Aber das sind Lappalien, das Gesamtspielerlebnis ist absolut mitreißend.
This game is by far the best title to debut in 2013; and possibly one of the most engaging, entertaining and emotionally-invested title in a very long while -- but be aware it's rated "Mature" for graphic violence. Naughty Dog's talented designers and developers crafted a thrill-ride that fuses clever combat, puzzle-solving, and exploration -- all tied together by a great story with well-written dialogue, excellent voice acting, and characters you genuinely care about. This is no easy feat for a game to nail all of these points, not to mention others like great pacing, tight controls, and high production values including near-photorealistic graphics and top-notch sound effects and music. When you've finished the solo campaign, multiplayer options add to the game's replayability. If you're 17 years of age or older and enjoy story-driven action games, don't pass on The Last of Us -- you won't find a better disc to sink your time and money into.
100 (Jun 05, 2013)
The Last of Us isn't just the PlayStation 3's swan song; it's the best exclusive on the console full stop.
GamesRadar (Jun 05, 2013)
It combines DNA strands from across the genre, yet reworks and recontextualises them to become far more than the sum of its parts. Its storytelling is peerless, as affecting and multi-layered as it is grounded, underplayed and real. In terms of everything the modern action game has strived to be, The Last of Us is the full-stop at the end of the sentence, leaving no more to be said. Until next-gen. If this is our starting point for that, then the next five to ten years could be truly amazing.
100 (UK) (Jun 05, 2013)
At a time when blockbuster action games are sinking into a mire of desperate overproduction, shallow gameplay and broken narrative logic, The Last of Us is a deeply impressive demonstration of how it can and should be done. It starts out safe but ends brave; it has heart and grit, and it hangs together beautifully. And it's a real video game, too. An elegy for a dying world, The Last of Us is also a beacon of hope for its genre.
100 (Jun 05, 2013)
Naughty Dog a réalisé un travail qui fera date. Il se pourrait même qu'il s'agisse d'une oeuvre majeure. Seul le temps nous le dira. En tout cas, The Last of Us termine en beauté le cycle de la PlayStation 3. Hormis, peut-être GTA V en septembre prochain, il semble plus que probable qu'aucun jeu ne lui arrive à la cheville sur cette génération de consoles dont il pourrait être la meilleure production. Vu la maîtrise des hommes de Christophe Balestra à proposer une nouvelle licence d'une telle qualité, on en vient à espérer qu'ils travaillent déjà sur une expérience inédite pour la PlayStation 4 et non pas sur un quatrième épisode de leur série phare, Uncharted.
Edge (Jun 05, 2013)
The Last Of Us strips away the geek-centric fan service so commonplace in contemporary games. For every highbrow idea explored, developers seem compelled to throw in a lowbrow one to counterbalance it. The Last Of Us resists such compromises, and does so without disappearing up its own backside. Naughty Dog has delivered the most riveting, emotionally resonant story-driven epic of this console generation. At times it’s easy to feel like big-budget development has too much on the line to allow stubbornly artful ideas to flourish, but then a game like The Last Of Us emerges through the crumbled blacktop like a climbing vine, green as a burnished emerald.
Rely on Horror (Jun 19, 2013)
The Last of Us is a crowning achievement, not just for the PlayStation 3, but for all of gaming. Sure, it doesn’t break new ground with innovative, totally unique gameplay mechanics and features, however, what it does is up the ante for storytelling in the medium with its top-notch presentation and writing, beautifully marrying that with solid and immersive gameplay mechanics. This is a game that evokes many different feelings from the player, whether it be fear of the infected or sadness at the bleak reality you’ll be placed in. The Last of Us isn’t a happy game, but it’s one that will definitely make you happy to be a gamer.
100 (Jun 05, 2013)
La prise de risques est remarquable, The Last of Us revenant à certains fondamentaux de la survie – comme l’infiltration à la dure, peu commune aujourd’hui – alors que le genre est à l’agonie. The Last of Us est, pour finir, un tombeau en or massif que Naughty Dog a érigé pour la Playstation 3, qui en finit même par vaciller devant tant d’égards graphiques. Magnifique et passionnant, il est le chant du cygne rêvé pour la console de Sony autant qu’une remarquable publicité pour sa petite sœur, qui profitera de ce brillant héritage.
PlayFrance (Jun 06, 2013)
Pari osé mais pari gagnant pour Naughty Dog qui nous offre avec The Last of Us l’un des jeux les plus réussis de la PS3, si ce n’est le meilleur d’entre eux. Magnifiquement réalisé, prenant par son histoire comme par son gameplay, et doté d’une durée de vie confortable, il ravira sans aucun doute les amateurs de survival déçus par les récents supposés représentants du genre. Mais plus largement, ses qualités devraient lui permettre de conquérir un large public avide d’aventures et d’émotions. Bref, tout possesseur de PS3 se doit d’avoir The Last of Us dans sa ludothèque avant de passer à la PS4 en fin d’année. On a maintenant hâte de savoir ce que Naughty Dog nous sortira de son chapeau sur cette nouvelle console !
games xtreme (Jun 19, 2013)
If there's one game which is going to stand out as a swansong for the PS3, the Last of Us can hold its head up high and proclaim from the rooftops - that it's the game. It might actually be one of the best games we've played this generation and is deserving of all the praise and high scores across the media it's getting. So we're not going to break that mould - nope, we're going to rate it near-perfection.
95 (Jun 17, 2013)
Overall, The Last Of Us puts right what Tomb Raider got so wrong. I’ve been playing this for six hours so far and am still loving it. As I type, I’m controlling Joel, and I don’t know if you get to play as Ellie as well, but there’s only so many hours in the day. And I’ve got that work thing to go to, as well, otherwise the bank manager will, y’know, repossess my house.
Absolute Games ( (Jul 10, 2013)
Однако как раз то, что драматургия игры становится в один ряд с таким признанным телешедевром, как Mad Men, несет в себе (опять) благую весть: игры сделали серьезный эволюционный скачок, и мы становимся свидетелями его плодов. The Last of Us повышает планку качества художественного контента, сосредоточенно ткет пресловутую «атмосферу», и у нее это чертовски хорошо получается, ведь она подражает великим. Конечно, она не забывает при этом быть отменной игрой — ее механика, хоть и простовата на первый взгляд, тщательно продумана и досконально протестирована — игра льется, как музыка, и уже ко второй трети истории удовольствие от нее становится практически непрерывным. Все это — благодаря умению разработчиков напрямую подключить игровую действительность к нашим нервным системам. Что тут остается? Только забраться повыше и взорваться комплиментами.
95 Gaming Portal (Jun 26, 2013)
Gameplay, nažalost, ima i par propusta koji nam onemogućuju da igri, kao brojni strani kolege, damo ocjenu 100/100, a istini na volju - rado bismo to učinili. Suparnički AI često odmaže osjećaju realnosti koji se igra tako trudi stvoriti, a mrvicu rastužuje da je jedini oblik „zagonetki“ baziran na linearnoj shemi odvlačenja objekta od jedne točke do druge. Riječ je ipak o propustima koji ne utječu na dojam dovoljno da ne bismo zaključili sljedeće: The Last of Us nije samo najljepša igra PlayStationa 3, već i najbolja ekskluziva koju nam je ova konzola od svog izlaska ponudila te igra zbog koje će se nadolazeći pretendenti na GOTY (Game of the year) nagradu morati vraški potruditi kako bi joj oduzeli tu titulu.
GamesCollection (Jun 13, 2013)
La perfezione assoluta é qualcosa che deve rimanere un obiettivo a cui tendere perciò credo che i (pochi, per carità) difetti che TLoU possiede non gli consentono il 10 pieno, in modo particolare per una tematica già affrontata da altri titoli e con altrettanta sapienza (quindi nulla di realmente nuovo sotto il sole). The Last Of Us è un titolo unico nel suo genere ed è un peccato che sia un’esclusiva Sony, perchè merita di essere giocato da qualsiasi giocatore a tutto tondo che voglia definirsi tale! L’uscita nei negozi è prevista per venerdì 14 giugno...e se fossi in voi mi farei trovare preparato ad affrontare la pandemia. O Si Lotta O Si Muore.
PlayStation Trophies (Jun 05, 2013)
Naughty Dog has gone out of this generation with a bang. A pus-filled, brutal, moral tainting and blood soaked bang. The Last Of Us is one of the year’s most mature and character driven experiences, and one of the finest experiences this generation. It’s survival of the fittest out there, and Naughty Dog has survived by creating such a heartfelt, heart warming, heart string pulling, heart stabbing experience that is both massively rewarding and hugely satisfying.
Game Informer Magazine (Jun 05, 2013)
The Last of Us is a deeply felt, shockingly violent game that questions what we're willing to sacrifice and, more disturbingly, what we're willing to do to save the ones we love. The conclusion offers no easy answers. You won't forget it.
It’s easy to initially expect The Last of Us to be a game about killing zombies, surviving in a post-apocalyptic world, and exploring for supplies. Instead, it’s a game about two people, and the bond that forms between them—and that journey is far more exciting than any amount of infected monsters or food scavenging could ever provide.
Softpedia (Jun 18, 2013)
The Last of Us is a great game that blends a superb story with gameplay that hits almost all of the right goals. Had it not been for the AI and the somewhat superfluous multiplayer, the game would be more than worthy of a maximum grade. Even so, PS3 owners owe it to themselves to try out the impressive title.
95 (Jun 05, 2013)
Mieux vaut être prévenu avant de vous lancer dans The Last of Us : c'est une aventure dont vous ne sortirez pas indemne. Les jeux de cette trempe sont rares et précieux. Certes, il n'est pas exempt de défauts, mais vous les oublierez bien vite dès que vous serez happé par son ambiance hors du commun et par son scénario qui risque bien de vous ébranler. Même les joueurs les plus endurcis finiront tôt ou tard par s'attacher à ses survivants lâchés dans un monde où le danger mortel côtoie l'émerveillement.
Gameplay (Benelux) (Jun 21, 2013)
In The Last of Us zweren bloedmooie graphics, uitstekende gameplay en een prachtig verhaal samen om de speler een stevige stomp in de maag te bezorgen. Spannend. Hartverscheurend. Subliem.
Worth Playing (Jun 17, 2013)
The Last of Us is a must-play title for any PS3 owner who's not squeamish about violence and depressing subject matter. It has flaws, but they don't detract from the overall experience, and at worst, the game could use a little more interaction. Naughty Dog has crafted an engrossing and interesting tale, and I can think of no higher praise for the game than that they could remove every shooting sequence, and it might be better for it. The characters are likeable, the story is interesting, and it's an engrossing experience from beginning to end.
92 (Jun 07, 2013)
Naughty Dog revolutioniert nichts, ist in Sachen Handlungsfreiheit nicht mutig genug, aber unterhält auf höchstem Niveau mit einer Erzählweise, die zum Spazieren, zum Beobachten und Innehalten einlädt. Mal ist dieses Abenteuer schrecklich, mal melancholisch oder bis zur Schmerzgrenze brutal. Trotz stellenweise gewöhnlicher Mechaniken wie Waffen-Upgrades oder Sammelkram und trotz mancher KI-Schwächen entsteht über 22 Stunden eine enorme situative Spannung, die mal an den subtilen Horror eines Silent Hill, mal an den brachialen Terror eines Resident Evil erinnert. Es gelingt den Entwicklern dabei immer wieder, der Traurigkeit und Trostlosigkeit dieser Endzeit eine hoffnungsvolle Facette abzugewinnen. Nicht nur aufgrund der fantastischen Kulisse, sondern vor allem aufgrund der emotionalen Identifikation mit glaubwürdigen Charakteren. Ich habe selten in einem Spiel so oft aufgeatmet, so stark mitgefiebert und so viel Angst vor dem Ende gehabt.
92 (Jun 14, 2013)
Zombit tuntuvat olevan nyt in, sillä erilaisia zombipelejä on nähty viime aikoina lähes kyllästymiseen asti. Onneksi Uncharted-peleistään tutun Naughty Dogin The Last of Us onnistuu tuomaan tuoreelta tuntuvan lähestymistavan melko kuluneeseen genreen. Peli keskittyy seikkailun ja räiskinnän lisäksi kertomaan inhimillisen tarinan selviytymisestä maailmassa, joka on synkkä, äärimmäisen väkivaltainen sekä vaarallinen. Tämä selviää jo ensimmäisten minuuttien aikana, kun pelaaja saa vilauksen siitä, kuinka kaikki alkoi.
Anime News Network (Jun 16, 2013)
But as cruel as it is, and as cumbersome, The Last of Us is also kind. The game features such exceptionally graphic violence and it abuses its characters with such pointed focus, that its lighthearted moments are almost impossible to trust. It is a game that knows when you need a break, so it puts its characters on a road trip, or has them crack wise over a stack of dirty magazines, or sticks them in front of a dart board. There is beauty left in the world, where light filters through autumn leaves into sunken basements, their ceilings breached by collapsed highway, their concrete halls converted into impromptu lakes, new homes for schools of fish. As the game gets longer, and the hurts get deeper, so do the breaks, until large stretches are just about walking around, and repositioning ladders, and ferrying about on floating pallets in subway tunnels transformed into rivers, where nature has reclaimed most of what humanity has left behind.
Games Finder (May 22, 2014)
The Last of Us is one of the best adventures in gaming with an amazing atmosphere and is a must play for any PlayStation 3 owner.
XGN (Jun 05, 2013)
Films zijn niet langer de graadmeter voor intense verhaalvertelling. Oók games kunnen een emotionele en meeslepende ervaring bieden. Het moet heel raar lopen wil The Last of Us niet zo minstens succesvol worden als Uncharted. Naughty Dog heeft met dit actie-avonturenspel de toon gezet en laat nogmaals zien dat de studio de ware koning is van het genre. Alles aan deze achtbaanrit klopt. Een prachtige tocht vol beproevingen en interessante (plot)wendingen. Een spannende thriller die ons de stuipen op het lijf doet jagen. Natuurlijk zijn er wat minpuntjes en gebreken, maar die nemen we voor lief. The Last of Us is een regelrechte aanrader en op GTA V na de laatste grote klapper die we op deze generatie zullen tegenkomen.
90 (Jun 05, 2013)
A stunning achievement in both storytelling and third person adventure, with unforgettable characters and tense, brilliantly paced action.
The Escapist (Jun 05, 2013)
The Last of Us breathes new life into a vastly overused genre, setting the bar for post-apocalyptic stories to come. It doesn't do anything new mechanically, but you'll be entirely too invested in the progress of the remarkably down-to-earth characters to care.
Superbe chant du cygne de la PS3 avec The Last of Us. Excellant dans la manière de raconter une histoire, Naughty Dog nous propose une aventure aux sensations fortes et aux sentiments à fleur de peau, dans un contexte post-apocalyptique de tous les dangers. Assurant un charisme à tous les étages, une réalisation quasi-parfaite et une prise en main confortable et fun, le jeu se présente clairement comme un incontournable des amateurs d'aventure et d'action.
Gaming Nexus (Jun 10, 2013)
Like the fungus that infected its deformed inhabitants, The Last of Us is not an enjoyable thing to experience. It’s depressing, exhausting and even disturbing. But , contrary to everything I tell myself, it’s something I won’t soon forget.
90 (Jun 05, 2013)
Det som imponerer mest i The Last of Us er Joel og Ellie. Jeg følte jeg ble godt kjent med det fascinerende tospannet i løpet av våre femten timer sammen. Dynamikken og forholdet mellom de to er fantastisk å oppleve, og det er umulig å ikke la seg påvirke når historien går mot slutten. De opplever begge mange forferdelige ting, men på tross av dette klarer de å knytte sterke bånd og tillit til hverandre. Alle de hyggelige samtalene Joel har med Ellie ga meg et snev av håp i dystre tider, og jeg gleder meg allerede til å treffe de igjen.
Gamereactor (Denmark) (Jun 05, 2013)
Og det er dét, karakteren herunder afspejler. Har du en PlayStation 3, vil jeg på det kraftigste opfordre til, at du under dig selv denne oplevelse. For selvom gameplayet kun er fornuftigt, er resten af The Last of Us simpelten så stærkt, at det skal have min varmeste anbefaling.
Gamekult (Jun 05, 2013)
Époustouflant est le mot qui résume le mieux The Last of Us et l'expérience qu'il propose. Le titre de Naughty Dog débarque en patron avec le double exploit de s'imposer instantanément en tant que nouvelle licence et d'établir un nouveau standard de qualité pour les jeux triple A. Car The Last of Us n'est pas juste le plus beau jeu actuel ou une histoire forte, il est la synthèse de tout ce qui s'est fait de mieux sur cette génération. En s'appropriant les forces de plusieurs genres pour ne conserver que le meilleur, le studio californien a obtenu une recette sublimée et signe le jeu testament de cette époque, juste avant le passage à la Next Gen.
Ich könnte mich hinstellen und auf den durchaus vorhandenen Macken von The Last of Us herumreiten. Die KI, die wechselhafte Grafikqualität, die 08/15-Handlung. Aber Erbsenzählerei hat hier nichts verloren. Naughty Dog hat ein in jeder Hinsicht erwachsenes Endzeit-Epos geschaffen, das seine Charaktere ernst nimmt und den Überlebenskampf spielerisch abwechslungsreich und überzeugend abbildet. The Last of Us ist das perfekte Abschiedsgeschenk des Studios an »seine« PS3.
NowGamer (Jun 05, 2013)
Unlike Uncharted it feels like The Last Of Us needed to allow for a little more personal input on the gamer's part, but for an involving story fantastically told and its own unique brand of semi-stealth The Last Of Us can't be beat.
Level 7 (Jun 05, 2013)
The Last of Us är ett fantastiskt actionäventyr som lyckas fånga känslan av undergång och överlevnad. Historien lämnar tyvärr en del att önska och det påminner för mycket om andra spel, men spelsystemet och den otroliga grafik- och ljudproduktionen gör det till en upplevelse som inte någon bör missa. Playstation 3-ägare eller ej.
Toronto Sun (Jun 05, 2013)
Despite the occasional jarring juxtaposition between its story and its gameplay, The Last of Us is a landmark piece of interactive entertainment, proving that even action games can tell mature, thoughtful tales, with characters who don’t feel like an assortment of tropes and cliches. With any luck, it won’t be the last of its kind.
Game Critics (Jun 22, 2013)
This focus on action is a true shame—Naughty Dog made the daring decision to build a triple-A game around a genuine antihero, and then made everyone around him cartoonishly monstrous in the hopes that players would like him anyway. I'd say that the kind of story that The Last of Us wants to tell can't be done in a mainstream video game, but I Am Alive and the Metro series manage just fine. Perhaps it's more accurate to say that it can't be done in the kind of game that's expected to sell three million copies.
GameFront (Germany) (Jun 14, 2013)
The Last of Us is most certainly a game you should play, as it does some great things for storytelling and carries the sort of polished intensity Naughty Dog has become known for producing. But despite its major victories and steps forward in storytelling, many of those same annoying video game conventions — the demand for action and high body counts, the lack of truly engaging and innovative play mechanics — continue to pull games like The Last of Us down toward the lowest common denominator.
GameSpot (Jun 05, 2013)
The Last of Us is a singular adventure that looks the downfall of humanity in the eyes and doesn't blink.
Factornews (Jun 19, 2013)
The Last Of Us n’est pas un chef d’œuvre, mais un jeu très bien produit. L’histoire n’a rien d’extraordinaire, possède quelques baisses de régimes, mais a le mérite d’être globalement bien écrite et de ne pas prendre le joueur pour un abruti. Le gameplay n’est pas toujours des plus captivants et se montre parfois répétitif, mais il sait aussi se montrer excitant. Le joueur est sur rail, mais le spectacle, le paysage et surtout la compagnie sont plaisants. C’est donc un blockbuster qui a pour lui d’être bien plus intelligent et moderne que la concurrence qui semble, elle, toujours vissée dans le grand spectacle des années 90 (de Predator à Matrix). En ce sens, il devrait sans mal constituer un nouveau standard d’exigence et devenir un futur classique de la PS3. Ceux qui aiment les jeux grands publics très narratifs à gros budget y verront sans doute une perle et ils auraient tort de se priver. Les autres trouveront le jeu très bien, mais le temps un peu long quand même.
Riot Pixels (Jun 19, 2013)
В «сезонный абонемент» входит и одно сюжетное дополнение. Продолжит ли оно недосказанную повесть о необычном дуэте или заполнит один из нескольких пробелов – не принципиально. Важнее, чтобы Naughty Dog хотя бы там исправила ошибки, мешающие сейчас получать удовольствие. Развить Uncharted в полновесный блокбастер студия смогла; верю, что она сумеет вырасти над собой ещё раз.
Polygon (Jun 05, 2013)
There are hints of a nuanced message in The Last of Us, but convention wins out too often to easily find them. Naughty Dog commits to a somber tone that affects every piece of the game for better and worse. It achieves incredible emotional high points about as often as it bumps up against tired scenario design that doesn't fit its world. Survival in the post-apocalypse requires compromise, but The Last of Us has given up something vital.
Quarter to Three (Jun 12, 2013)
“Did I do good back there?” she asks after she’s stabbed a guy in the leg while you grappled with him or she called out a target that was flanking you. These things don’t always happen, so they’re all the more important when they do. Yes, sweetheart, you did. You did real good. And I couldn’t be happier to be talking to you now instead of playing that turgid stealth shooter.
Diehard GameFan (Jun 28, 2013)
The Last of Us is one of the most engrossing interactive experiences I’ve ever come across. It does this through dynamite scripting, visual that bring the characters to life, the best aural composition in gaming, and through gameplay that fits the tone of the game like a glove. It’s a brutal, merciless game that will often leave you with your mouth open in shock. There are issues, but they merely keep the game from being perfect. This is one of the best games of the year, and something you shouldn’t hesitate to try.
