What's Happening to Beyond: Two Souls?

Hardcore Gamer: We got our hands on Beyond: Two Souls for the second time and it's hard to say we're excited about it. The textures were very low and there seemed to be a lot of jagged edges on most of the models. There's also a weird gameplay disconnect considering the amount of action in parts of the game. (Beyond: Two Souls, PS3)

I just keep getting more worried about this game

This is such a bad article, he obviously didn't like Heavy Rain, Heavy Rain is not a game for everyone but for me it is one of the best games I have played. So if he doesn't like Heavy Rain, he sure as hell isn't going to like Beyond: Two Souls since he said with his own words that the games are very similar. I am very much looking forward too Beyond: Two Souls.

Don't get someone who hates fighting games to review a fighting game. (Not saying Heavy Rain is a fighting game)

I remember a guy at work (did not have a PS3) saying to me that Heavy Rain had a bad story, any way I mentioned this to one of the Xbox fanboys at work (who had a PS3, but wanted to get rid of it, but it YLODed when he was wiping his HDD LOL), and he was really shocked and said that the story was amazing. And that it was the best game he had played on his PS3.

Point is, some people will like this game, and some will hate it, but I've enjoyed every game of Quantic Dream's I've played, so I'm looking forward to it. The story is the best aspect, and it is a more of a cinematic experience that you rarely get in games.

Bootleg version?
Cuz I didn't see any of those on those gameplay trailers.

Heavy rain came out fine.

Every gamer that I spoke to who attend Comic-Con 2013 said they loved Beyond Two Souls!!!! Here's a video of one gamer's opinion who played the game at comic-con. Fast Forward to 2:50.

If you're into Heavy Rain kind of game then you will probably enjoy B:2S.

It seems like the author isn't a fan of this genre.
The author should know by now know about QD games, they are mysterious, thrilling, dramatic, story driven.
He should at least expected that the demo will not feature a big portion of the story or a twist. Really, who would show a key point in a demo?
Why people complains about the controls? do we have a mind fatigue that prevents us from learning how to control a character + a soul? if you aim at enemy and you shoot alley because of stupid programing code then yes we have an issue with the control, if you can't adopt a new button system then don't cry about it, go to your comfort games where L1 is zoom & R1 shoots just like 99% of the games.

It is a Quantic Dream game. They suffer from 2 faults.

1. A terrible lead writer.
2. Ambition they lack the talent to match.

It doesn't surprise me one bit if the game is undergoing some troubles.

Well personal opinion. I enjoyed Heavy Rain (I know there are plot holes) as well as Fahrenheit. The later game I enjoyed until it wen`t all Matrix.

I only enjoyed Omikron and mildly enjoyed the first half of Fahrenheit.

That`s your persona taste and preference that`s fine :)

Some people like the games they make some don`t. There is still much we don`t know about the game yet and none of us have played it and I still look forward to it and hold my judgement until it is out.

icarus flew too close to the sun. as different as these guys are trying to be i think theyve got the lady gaga bug. where they made their differences their best attribute without realizing theyre just going a little nuts with the different. hopefully this is a good game tho.

A lot of gaming sites seem to be noticing these same issues with the game so far. Controlling the ghostly companion should be done through the analog sticks imo not with L2&R2, hopefully the final game will be better.

Here is the trailer for the gameplay.I think it has a different way of playing.

Τhis "article" is a joke! How can he expect to know all the facts and have explained such a story focused game in a short demo?! His "problems" with it are laughable! Imo it looks like he just doesn't like this type of games and doesn't quite understand the concept of a demo!
Personally i can't wait for this! Such games don't come around often and this looks like it will be one to remember!!!
Williamson  +   347d ago
I agree that criticizing the story off of a demo is pretty dumb. Good thing we dont have to wait too long to play this.
Scatpants  +   347d ago
This looks like it may have a good story, but I hate Davis Cage's Simon Says gameplay.
I debating buying this or just selling my PS3 right now to pay for my PS4

I very much liked Heavy Rain despite it`s shortcomings and I still look forward to Beyond two Souls. The games from Quantic Dream are modern point and click adventure games. Old point and click adventure games like Indiana Jones had action sequences that didn`t fully fit for point and click but they where still great games.

The gameplay has me a bit concerned as well but not enough to write full article about it. Which bringsbme to the second half of this article.

You cant expose too much of a game like this without major spoilers, so his cocerns about the story cannot be justified. If QD were to fully explain why jodie is training and later in a warzone, it would would ruin the full experience.

Hopefully they can iron out the controls as it's silly to intentionally hamstring the player with poor controlz cuz f&&& it. There is no logical reason for them.

I marked down this site. It's quite clear that the guy himself has very little to say in terms of the game itself, and in all honesty, the friggin thing is less than 500 words long. You expect me to take my time and read your article when the only thing you're giving me is a rough opinion, and a half-assed summary of the game? I don't think so.
CrossingEden  +   347d ago
So this is really suspicious, considering the frequency of these articles I have to remain suspicious, just like with thief, the majority of the articles complain about the controls and gameplay, one thing I noticed is the fact that the overabundance of slow mo really takes away from the intensity, heavy rain's fight scenes were intense because of how fast they were going, so I think david cage is missing the point, because he certainly misses the point of SHOW, DON'T TELL whenever he's on stage, yes dude, I know this scene is supposed to be sad, you really don't have to spell it out and now I don't care about this little boy subplot

Just reading the description is enough for me to block the site. What a joke.
