Beyond: Two Souls

 

It was only in playing it that I began to see reasons for blaring separation between those who would praise it, and those who would pick it apart. Jodie (Ellen Page) appears to be a regular child playing a typical game of imaginary friend named Aiden....

Beyond: Two Souls represents a few firsts for me. It's my first Quantic Dream game as somehow I've never played one of theirs in my 35+ years of gaming. It's also the first AAA game that I've gone into almost completely blind. Before playing, my only...

Beyond: Two Souls is a beautiful and well-crafted interactive experience that is encumbered by some odd writing and questionable game-design decisions.

After about four hours playing Quantic Dream's latest ambitious title, Beyond: Two Souls, I felt nothing but confliction. I figured that would be erased when I completed the game, and I could pen the review with no reservations. Unfortunately, my...

The Ugly: “It’s difficult to accept when a game with so much potential falls short.”

Beyond: Two Souls- PS3

 

Beyond: Two Souls is a fascinating experience that expertly links story and mechanics to further your connection to the world.

Well-developed characters with evolving personalities ; Grounded story that examines human failings ; Controls help draw you in to Jodie's plight ; Choices let you develop Jodie and Aiden as you wish

Choice plays a role in each of the 20 vignettes that make up the story. You decide whether Jodie responds aggressively, sarcastically, or in some other way to a question, and she can evade the truth or be honest when people ask about Aiden. Major plot...

Beyond: Two Souls Doesn’t Go That Far Beyond Heavy Rain

 

Beyond tries to distinguish itself by interweaving slice-of-life scenes like Jodie cleaning up her apartment before a date. However, the story in Beyond isn't really about Jodie's life. It's about the mysteries surrounding her.

Is it a requirement to have at least one superfluous shower scene in a Quantic Dream interactive drama? Beyond: Two Souls continues the tradition with two them.

A moving and gripping story about who we are.

As I stated before, this title is glorious to look at. It is eerie how close the character models look like their physical counterparts. It is probably the closest yet to controlling a cinematic experience. However, there are a few instances of texture...

With Beyond: Two Souls, director David Cage continues to work at perfecting his own genre - the interactive drama - but his latest might just be too amb [...]

I really wanted to love "Beyond: Two Souls", but it ended up disappointing me. The excellence of Cage's previous work, Ellen Page's involvement and the glimpses of greatness it offered leaves no doubt that this game could have been a masterpiece,...

The conversation around storytelling in gaming has changed of late, thanks to the emergence of a new generation of more personal game stories that look to not only provide flashy visuals but real characters and emotion to boot. Quantic Dream as a...

Flawed and silly, but also ambitious and heartfelt, this is a game with a clear vision, like it or not, that follows through with utter conviction to the end. There’s something admirable in that, and as long as you go in with your eyes open there is a...

<!

Beyond: Two Souls is certainly a game that has already polarised opinion, and it’s very easy to see why. As an interactive drama, this hits all the right notes, with believable and memorable characters, many of which I eventually felt a connection to,...

Beyond: Two Souls is must play, if it's your type of experience.

If the problems mentioned don’t scare you off at the outset, Beyond: Two Souls is simply a must buy. It's beautiful, fastidiously detailed and a focused vision with great performances to drive a touching and sobering story. Just figure out for yourself...
