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.
Wanted to slice throats in that party!!!
Is that a spoiler?
@xYakuzaz No not really
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.
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.
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.
@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.
looks like this game is bad! joystick-50% edge- 50% Eurogamer-60% ign- 60% giant bomb- 60% destructoid- 50% sixth axis- 60% This game is a beautiful disaster- a AAA flop. A QTE FESTIVAL! Guys if u love this game's qte then u should try ryse its right up your ally! cheers
I'm playing this game for my self and make my own mind about it Heavy rain got the same treatment
(+)1 Well said sir.
No Heavy Rain was acclaimed. But I agree on playing it yourself.
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.
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...
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
87% meta critic is not considered mixed reviews. this game is a 73% meta- NOW THATS MIXED.
I wasn't referring to reviews strictly, I just meant the reaction to the game in general. Many hated it, many loved it.
I watched a good 2-Hours of gameplay on Twitch today....and Holy hell....the entire 2 hours was just a QTE fest with a little movement... Will Just pick this up when it drops down to like $30 or something.
Guess you never played Heavy Rain...
Yes I have...But did I pay $60 for it? No. But this seems like it actually has a lot more qte events than Heavy Rain.
Thats the greatest problem with David Cage games he simply dont give the players the control of the games,this is a game we the players shoud have control of the game and especialy in term of controling the character;QTE actions over real control is just BS.I really think that David Cage would do better writting storys for books or even games than producing them.
he's a self aggrandised douche
Honestly, his story writing is really too weak to be a successful novelist.
Does she have any other facial expression? I'm serious, of all the videos and pics I have seen, she can't seem to express anything else :0
Not everyone respects games that are heavy on story and less focus on gameplay. Not everyone realises that 'games' aren't just about gaemplay, but can be a medium to tell a great story Thats why you guys should not take these review sites who give this game a low score seriously, because they are just clueless.
Most reviews with complaints are aimed at the goofy storytelling. Games aren't just about gameplay, true. But they also shouldn't be about messy storytelling with no gameplay either.
heavy rain scored well because it attempted to do something different (even though it was shit) Beyond assholes is getting bad reviews because being different isn't good enough in itself ... not twice... it has to be an interesting story and the 'interaction' has to work well. David Cage has dined out enough on his(?) idea and the industry is just trying to calm his ego a bit. He might be good as a less prominent part of a development team maybe.
