The release of The Last of Us Part 1 on PC has been anything but smooth as a large number of players have apparently been suffering through numerous performance issues. This has forced hordes of ‘mouse Clickers’ to leave scathing reviews on the game’s Steam page as a way of venting out their frustration.

Several users are reporting multiple instances of crashing and low fps, making the game borderline unplayable. Some fans have even decided to point fingers at video game developer Iron Galaxy for this latest “shoddy” PC port. For those unfamiliar, Iron Galaxy is also known for creating PC versions of the Batman: Arkham Collection and the Uncharted Collection, both of which also suffered performance issues during their release.
One disgruntled commenter even went so far as to question Sony’s strategy by noting that the tech giants “hired the most infamous PC porting team to handle their two biggest IPs despite owning Nixxes, who are arguably the most famous PC porting team.”
Others have called this AAA Windows launch “the single worst PC port they have ever seen.” Because of the hype that previously surrounded it and the release delay that the game went through, many were expecting the experience to be much smoother than this.

Hopefully, Naughty Dog and Iron Galaxy resolve these issues soon as the player base seems willing to give up on the game already. Luckily, the well-known studio behind the creation of The Last of Us remains well-respected in the community so most gamers are remaining patient for now. If it doesn’t get fixed soon, however, it may just end up being a disappointing blemish in the game’s bright history.
