Beyond: Two Souls Demo Proves Disappointing | gamrReview Preview

gamrReview's Arthur Kabrick: "There’s no sign of any of the open-ended investigation that we saw in Heavy Rain, and there’s none of the heart-pounding fast-paced action of Indigo Prophecy either. If any of Quantic Dream’s games can face criticism for being little more than an interactive movie, it’s this one."

I loved it personally.

Guess you gotta play it through normally to get the most out of it

That's how i played it, then messed about for ages getting different scenes, high quality fun.

"Story Quality: WTF?"
I mean he calls a narrative-driven game disappointing because of it's gameplay ...

Narrative-driven "GAME" gets excused from bad gameplay?

Not saying it has bad gameplay but...Zod..really? If a game has crap gameplay, it shouldn't get let off just because of it's genre. Heavy Rain had good gameplay along with the story and it was narrative driven. In fact the interaction with the story was why Heavy rain was good. Because the Story itself fell apart towards the end.

If I had a ps3 I would definitely get this and heavy rain, I think people should treat the game like an rpg.
Surely if you reviewed an rpg with battle menu's etc you couldn't say the gameplay is crap because it's not as action packed as a fps.

I loved the demo as well. Having two controllable characters brought an interesting dynamic to the game, especially when controlling Aiden during "The Experiment." I can't wait for this game.

Agreed, I thought the demo was fantastic. I played Heavy Rain 4 times, and as far as linearity it seemed about the same...Besides if you're playing any Quantic Dream game you're playing it for the graphics,story, and to see how different choices can change the outcome of the game. I'm not buying Beyond at launch because it's to close to the release of GTAOnline and buying the PS4 next month, but I'll still be getting it; just a little later than I thought.

The one problem I encountered with the demo is no sound while using surround sound headsets :-/


disappointed to see that the reviewer didnt enjoy the demo, but im sure the retail game will be nothing short of greatness.

Disappointing? That's not how I'd describe the demo. I thought it was amazing and can't wait till release.

QD have always been great at thought provoking stories in their games and Beyond is no different.

I have not been able to make myself be excited for this game. I loved Heavy Rain, but this just looks dull to me.

Also, the guy behind this game annoys the crap out of me. I hate it when he keynote speaks at conferences, etc. He tries way too hard to convince everyone that his stories are so great and he is able to create such powerful emotion. Sorry bro, but Naughty Dog does it so much better than you, and their games are actually exciting to play.

And again, I loved Heavy Rain.
