Summary: I liked the game-play, but it sure wasn't the best. The voice acting was a bit odd, and the controls confused me from time-to-time. Still unique, I love games like this, but it didn't really meet up to the standards of a 'Heavy Rain' game-play. Kind of awkward at moments, some weird choices...
Summary: This game is an interactive movie. Most of the actual controlling you do is just walking around and/or some sort of right stick swipe in order to perform a task. If you've played Heavy Rain the controls are the exact same. And for obvious reason, both were made by Quantic Dream. The story is somewhat engaging, but not as profound as I was hoping. It would have been better off as a 2 hour movie and not a 13 hour video game. It's not a bad game.
Summary: When I first saw the game I was really excited about it,I know the game will have a bunch of cutscenes and quick-time events but that's alright the first David Cage game,"Heavy rain" and it was GREAT, but this game is a mess. I know BEYOND Two Souls is going to be scripted but I never it was HEAVILY SCRIPTED seriously there is LITTLE outcome with each choice,no matter if you lie,tell the truth get shot,punch or stab the outcome will be the same and I was REALLY...
Summary: Don't get me wrong the creators did something special the story, voice acting and graphics make this game special but I feel like they wanted it to be a movie experience more then a gaming one. (If this was a movie I could watch it , the story is that good) but the controls are clunky and you have scripted action, you have powers that can protect you in this level but later same type of action and you can't use it because the game wants to push you another way this...
Summary: So i bought this game about a week ago and I just finished beating it yesterday playing about 2 hours a day on average so overall it lasts for about 10 hours or so of total gaming. No that word, gaming, is a bit loose because it's more of an interactive story and less of a game. I say this because at no point in the game (At least during my game play) did it seem even possible to fail.
Summary: This game offers so much for gamers to do which is what you want in a game. But the variety and amount of things going on just gets messy and turns confusing after a while. All of the people who rate it a perfect ten know these flaws but cast them aside to keep the game perfect in their mind. This game is far from perfect but in the same way just misses perfection. Unbiasedly this games flaws and messiness outlast its amazing look and sound.
Lovely graphics and performance by Ellen Page but clumsy controls

Summary: Very much wanted to like this and am a huge fan of The Walking Dead which is in a similar-ish style of minimalist control interactive movie but found the control system too clumsy/fiddly to get into and the story a little annoying with the constant flashbacks. A great shame really but I never felt connected to the game or the character. On the plus side the graphics technology is very impressive and Ellen Page's performance is well done.
