Wait for Reviews
As we progress toward the game's release date, we expect additional details to trickle out. If you still find yourself wrestling with how to spend your money, you might want to wait for official reviews to emerge.
It'll be a few months before official The Last of Us 2 reviews arrive. That said, we might get first impressions and in depth hands-on before the game officially arrives on shelves.
These will be helpful, but many of you will want to wait for feedback on the full version of the game before buying it.
While some publishers use embargoes to control the narrative, we don't expect this from Naughty Dog and Sony.
Reviews for Uncharted 4 arrived a few days before its street date and we expect the same conduct this time around.
If this happens, you'll be able to make a much better decision about a pre-order.
