Bosses in The Last of Us?

7 replies 3246 views Edited Jun 17, 2012

OK, to begin with, I'm not thinking at giant monsters with life bars, that need dozen of bullets in the head to be killed, just refering to, at least one ore two "special encounters" in the game.

Uncharted had great bosses like Draza and Navarro (Lazarevic was great but quite unrealistic) so I was thinking that maybe, if J/E had to fight a group of ennemies, directed by a leader that would die like the other guys with one bullet in the head but, in the same time, that would be more dangerous (having some rusted machine gun or grenades), it would be nice.

Same thing for infected: maybe some breed of large infected that would be killed less easily than others, and would serve as a mini-boss in a cinematic encounter, near from the end of the level. There won't be many, but will surprise the player and stay realistic, since it wouldn't survive ten times the damages you have to do to a standard enemy to kill it. In Uncharted DF, Atoq was truly a great boss: no gunfight, just evading and kicking at the good moment.

So, what do you think? Nice idea or worst thing ever imagined?

If there are bosses, I expect really powerful Infected enemies. Maybe armored humans.

Well since ammo is very limited it may be a bit difficult to have bosses.

 

Unless they take the Zelda style *stock up on items (ammo) before using the master key on this door!* approach.

 

I mean think about it:

-encounters raging infected monster

-shoots only two revolver shots

-punches raging infected monster

-dies

 

Regardless, if ammo is not a problem, I would like to see some special stronger infected. Maybe not bosses in the sense of only fighting them once, but moreso mini bosses where they are just standard infected enemies, but stronger and more rare than the rest.

I would expect the 'bosses' in this game to be more a lot the lines of 'find the unique way to kill this powerful enemy', a classic example being 'shoot the chain of the chandelier hanging above this guy'. The game definitely seems to be more strategy-based than mindless shooting, so I'd expect you'd have to survey the area and find a way to use the terrain to your advantage.

I for one hope there will be a boss 75% through that there will be a boss that is strong enough to be half human and half infected. Later some city 90% through in full of them and maybe 95% through you find the perfect community to live in. But soon you find out that there are dozens of infected around and the people living there are not trained in combat so you defeat the infected. Now here comes 1 week of peacefulness, until the Military arrives. In each squad of 25, the leader is a boss. after you defeat 1-2 squads the real boss fight comes- an armored Infected
