  • Excerpt: Diluting the line between fiction and reality. It's something almost every developer tries at some point, but few do it with such force-and potentially so much flaw as Quantic Dream. Indigo Prophecy gave freedom to gamers, allowed them to make choices that would change the entire scope of what they saw, what their character was feeling. And as such, they were hailed for it.

  • Summary: Last year, Sony and Quantic Dream announced 'Beyond: Two Souls' with all of the flourish of a Oscar hopeful.

  • Summary: There are spirits all around us. Are they ghosts or demons? Malevolent or nice? What matters is not their nature, but rather how we react to their presence. In Beyond: Two Souls, Jodie's life is colored by an invisible force who never strays from her side, and we follow her down a volatile path in which her identity is constantly in flux.
  • Pros: 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

  • Summary: This review comes from Digitally Downloaded . review Jodie is a lonely little girl, incredibly bored in the middle of winter. Her mother suggests she go outside and play, though she’s not allowed out of the yard. But she sneaks through the fence to join a group of kids in a snowball fight. It’s all play at first, but then the spirit that is linked to Jodie by an invisible chain becomes protective over the percieved violence of the kids throwing objects at one another.
