The highly anticipated PC version of The Last of Us Part I launched today and it doesn’t seem very good. Given the show’s recent success, this is probably not an ideal launch for the game that I have on my list of the best games I’ve ever played. When I first looked at the Steam page for The Last of Us Part I, I actually rolled my eyes thinking those rabid review bombers were out again. But instead, it looks like there are legitimate issues with the performance of the game on PC. At the time of publishing, The Last of Us Part I on PC has just shy of 2,000 reviews and a Mostly Negative rating on Steam. Ouch.

The complaints range from crashes to maxing out the CPU utilization at the menu. Some users also say loading the shaders takes “an absurdly long time.” You probably want to be ready to refund the game if it doesn’t run well on your PC. If you’re confident it will or that Sony will have it patched up in a timely fashion, you can save 10% at Green Man Gaming. Expect more reviews to trickle in, as The Last of Us Part I is currently the top-selling game on Steam.
