Beyond’s Gameplay Blends Heavy Rain With Geist

Siliconera: "We’re here to be pioneers. We’re here to take risks. We’re here to try new things," director David Cage exclaimed when he introduced Beyond in a behind closed doors presentation. Beyond follows Jodie who is tied to an invisible companion named Aiden from when she’s a child to her life as an adult. Players will see how Jodie, portrayed by Ellen Page, learns to live with Aiden throughout her life. (Beyond: Two Souls, Geist, Heavy Rain , PS3)

So quick time events and FPS? I knew there was a reason this one did nothing for me when shown at E3. It looks nice but I have doubts about the gameplay.

It will be similar to Heavy Rain, but the game-play is still more traditional (walking with the stick rather than R2 - for instance).

Still, what they showed @ E3 was very little. I wouldn't jump to conclusions just yet.

If you enjoyed Heavy Rain your bound to enjoy this one. The gameplay demo looked the same so that's good IMO. In fact the narrative from heavy rain was the thing that kept me in the edge of my seat. QTE didn't really bother me and actually pulled me into the story even more allowing me to digest what was happening on screen simultaneous. Felt like I was watching a movie the whole time. Can't wait to learn more about this game and the mystery revolving around the main character.

I wasn't a huge fan of Heavy Rain. It was certainly entertaining, but I didn't find many of the components that impressive.

The gameplay, I understood where they were going with it. However I expected with QTE's that the other components of the game would shine with more focus.

Graphics, while they looked nice I wasn't impressed. Considering how much control of the gameplay they took away and how on rails it was I expected much better graphics. I found many of the animations to be clunky as well.

Performances were really hit and miss for me. Some of the voice acting was top notch, while others were cringe worthy. (Jason!.....Jaaaaason!!)

Story, while decent enough to keep me entertained I did not find this story impressive at all. I found myself constantly wondering why characters were doing what they were. Seriously, what 12 year old kid chases a balloon into the street? Many of the moments felt forced in order to achieve some plot line.

I don't hate the game. I played through it once, was entertained, but it didn't leave a lasting impression what so ever for me. Just wasn't for me I guess. I hope this one is different.
