Break That Rusty Cage | Beyond: Two Souls Review

New Gamer Nation
29 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Cage at this stage resembles a high-school drama student, ardently performing his pretentious work to a roomful of people who still believe he can produce great things. Yet after many hours of putting up with the questionable elements and threadbare narrative out of sheer goodwill and hope for a resolution that makes all that time worthwhile, Beyond is a divisive title that is only going to appeal to those who can forgo a total lack of tonal consistency for the sake of...
  • Pros: +Unbelievable graphics, +Very Emotive Animation

Beyond: Two Souls – review

Critical Gamer
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: This review is my tribute to David Cage. I’m breaking all the Critical Gamer reviewing rules! I’m writing in first person, I am paying no heed to the word count, and who knows? Maybe I’ll purposefully throw in a spelling mistake or two. I’m a goddamned maverick, just like Cage. If you don’t like this review then it’s obviously because you’re scared of the fact that it isn’t the sort of thing you’re used to, and you should stick to tabloid journalism.

Beyond: Two Souls Review | Beyond Redemption

15 October 2013
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Beyond: Two Souls presents a massively overblown sci-fi carousel of high melodrama that's sadly undermined completely by an antithetical focus on routine choices and fine detail for the player, numerous plot holes and a lack of tension and mystery, and the squandering of its one truly unique selling point.
  • Pros: It looks pretty, There are fleeting moments when everything aligns and Beyond grabs your attention, Momentous decisions do finally come... at the end, Fantastic performances from many of the actors, Would have made a great SyFy TV mini-series to get drunk in front of
  • Cons: You're even more of a spectator than you were in Heavy Rain, Shuffled structure can't compensate for a lack of narrative purpose, Emotional arcs at odds with alienating presentation, More action, but less gameplay, Contrived drama: Plot escalation is transparent and clunky far too often, especially at the end, Sterilised drama: No feeling of tension or impact or feeling, Aiden reduced to a rigid, inconsistent plot device

Recension: Beyond: Two Souls

Level 7
8 October 2013
  • Summary: Jag har länge försvarat David Cage. Jag gillar hans ambitioner att ta stora spelproduktioner mer åt dramahållet och visa att den typen av storspel också kan göra ludologiska verk som handlar om saker som att natta barnen, snacka skit med grannen och bråka med partnern. Eller i vilket fall ha med det som ett komplement för att bredda historier som annars fokuserar på mysterier och action.
  • Pros: Stark första akt., Otroliga produktionsvärden., Några fina skådespelarinsatser.
  • Cons: Oengagerande historia., Intetsägande val., Inkonsekvent handling., Inkonsekventa karaktärer.
