Summary: So before I read hateful comments, I do want to say that the graphics for this game are amazing, the acting is great, the story line is also wonderful. However, for an 8 hour game (once again, what is up with all of these short games?), the actual game play is scarce. 90% of this game is you watching the clips with the story line. And let's face it, the actual game play is limited. Yes, the game has action, but you have nothing to do with it.
Summary: If I wanted to tidy books and dirty laundry away I can do that anytime! O.K the acting talent is great and the graphics are top notch. I just got so tired of being forced to do the most menial tasks. Some elements are of course fun, just not fun enough for me, couldn't be bothered to see it through to the end. Trade in time.

Pros: Graphics,sound effects and the plot some time was very intresting
Cons: control action were very limited and there aren't many things you can do .
Summary: Stunning graphics aside the game is awful. Very little control of much really. Whole segments of the game are 15 to 20 minute cut scenes with the requirement to press maybe 2 buttons in that time to select a choice. Good story, good acting etc etc but a game? Not really. It was more like taking a tiny part in a film. I got the impression the game was born out of tech research that needed to justify it's cost and reap some money back.
Summary: it has been posed if this is a game or not. I played it through, but I was a little reluctant to play again even with the varied options in the game. It all feels slow and labored... not as much fun as I hoped.
Summary: unfortunately, i would love to praise this game ntil the cows come home but i cant. althought the graphics are at the standard that we all expected to see from this team the game play is non existent. the story is no where near as good as the first game ,'heavy rain'. i am a massive fan of there prev. game due to story , graphics and its multiple endings but this game ended up short. i would not recommend this game as its main flaw to me was that there was no game play.
Excerpt: "Beyond: Two Souls is the latest "game" from developer Quantic Dream, who are best known for creating the murder mystery Heavy Rain. I use the phrase "game" in the loosest sense of the word as at times this PS3 title feels more like an interactive movie. David Cage, the brains behind Quantic Dream, comes across as pretentious when promoting his company's products. He lambasts modern video games for being uncreative in their storytelling by depending ...
Pros: Realistic looking graphics, fine performances from Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe
Cons: Limited gameplay, dull segments were you have to perform uninteresting tasks
Pretty visuals and big name stars cannot mask a shallow playing experience.

Summary: I bought this and ended up finishing it within a week, and that didn't involve a lot of gameplay time. the controls are very simplistic and ultimately disappointing on the whole. it seems like you can't really do anything wrong during the story and that's as frustrating as you don't really need to think. It felt like it was a movie that they couldn't get anyone to pick up, so they made it into a video game with some interaction.
