Beyond: Two Souls Review – PlayStation 3

Game Chronicles
28 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I’ve been a huge fan of Quantic Dream ever since Indigo Prophecy blew my mind on the original Xbox back in 2005.  Then, in 2010, they turned the PS3 gaming community upside down while simultaneously revolutionizing the concept of interactive cinematic gameplay with their hit Heavy Rain .

  • Summary: Beyond Two Souls is a masterpiece and should easily earn a spot on the shelf of any PS3 gamer. Like Heavy Rain before it, Quantic Dream's repertoire of story-driven games has moved me like no other before it. I am happy to dub it the best game I have ever played.

Game Over Online
15 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Beyond: Two Souls follows up on Quantic Dream’s brilliant Heavy Rain with a similarly-immersive interactive story-heavy adventure. Like that game, it is a blending of films with an almost point and click adventure gameplay style given that you’ve got branching paths and sometimes-minimal interactivity with the gameplay.

  • 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: The implicit contract between gamer and games designer relies on a suspension of disbelief, and a tacit acceptance that there are far fewer options available to the player than there seems to be. Playing games is make believe, and while we know that every locked and inaccessible door in a game has nothing behind it, we imagine that it does. We pretend that the path we are on is one we choose to walk, and not one we must walk because it’s all that exists.

High-Def Digest
8 October 2013
  • Summary: Last year, Sony and Quantic Dream announced 'Beyond: Two Souls' with all of the flourish of a Oscar hopeful. With Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe headlining, David Cage, the director, writer, and lead lightning rod at Quantic Dream, promised that 'Beyond: Two Souls' would break new ground for gameplay while revealing to players a meticulously produced sci-fi and character drama.
