GiantBomb- Beyond: Two Souls Review

GB:It's guilty of both overbearing goofiness and unearned self-seriousness, yet Beyond: Two Souls is still easily Quantic Dream's most fully-realized game to date.

He just likes to post first. Anyway I will be picking this up tomorrow.

Huh...I honestly didn't expect this kind of reception for Beyond from Giant Bomb. I'm not saying it's right or wrong; I just didn't expect it.

The games that QD build aren't for everyone and that's alright.

Neckbear1841d ago

The issue here being that regardless of the kind of game it is, it isn't good at what it attempts to do. Mainly due to goofy writing and silly plot points that fail to mesh together and create something about as incredible as a fanfiction written by a 13 year old.

SpiralTear1841d ago

Yeah. I think that "not for everyone" quality is what gives the game a unique identity, and uniqueness is something that the industry sorely needs these days.

CrossingEden1840d ago

@Neckbear, goofy writing is an understatement, that "I'll kill everyone" scene is extremely cheesy outside of the trailer, since she literally JUST killed everyone who was around.

I'm playing this game for my self and make my own mind about it
Heavy rain got the same treatment

Bundi1840d ago

No Heavy Rain was acclaimed. But I agree on playing it yourself.

strifeblade1840d ago

heavy rain got the same treatment but then again heavy rain got an 87% meta not a 73% meta.

U better make your own mind about it because if you let any other website do it for you your mind you might get upset.

monkeyfox1841d ago (Edited 1841d ago )

everything we judge is based on what has gone before however this game is quite unique and there isnt much around to compare it to. Its just not comfortable to play for some people. Thus why some reviews are giving it 10/10 and others much lower.

Personally, whenever a game or film gets so many wildly different reviews i usually take that as a good sign...

mike32UK1841d ago

Heavy rain got the same mixed reactions, I don't know why everyone is so surprised by this. Personally, this kind of game appeals to me just as much as GTA, TLOU, Bioshock and Tomb Raider. Still eagerly awaiting my delivery!

'Un-earned self seriousness' BITCH PLEASE

strifeblade1840d ago

87% meta critic is not considered mixed reviews. this game is a 73% meta- NOW THATS MIXED.

mike32UK1840d ago

I wasn't referring to reviews strictly, I just meant the reaction to the game in general. Many hated it, many loved it.
