Chief Editors impressions on TLOU, 2 hours in (tried to translate as best as I could from GameReactor Sweden) =>
"We've had some issues getting TLOU to work on our dev-unit, for 26 hours actually. But now its up and running and I have played for about two hours.
It is a very different game compared to Uncharted, which you all probably know. Sure the running animations are somewhat recognized from Nathans lovely adventure, but overall the similarities are extremely few.
The first hour is insanely well directed, compiled with style, atmospheric, beautiful and exciting. The second hour has been challenging and very violent. The stealth-mechanic works good and it is really necessary to sneak rather than to fight/shoot, otherwise you're screwed pretty quick. It is also beautiful looking. Not quite as shocking and uber-georgus as Uncharted 3, but still in the top when it comes to amazing Playstation 3 titles."
He updated with more =>
"I am sucked into the game world and I nearly scream whenever Joel and ellie are being attacked by Clickers. There is a certian humanity and atmosphere in this game that maybe 15 titles of ALL time can compete with. The stealth mechanic is borrowed from Uncharted and it isnt something I am going to praise to death, but everything else so far is completely fantasticly good. I have played for about four hours and will now return back in. Two more pics below taking off screen so the contrast is a bit high."
