Unfinished Business – The Beyond: Two Souls Review Story

We promised that you haven’t heard the last from us, so the Daily Reaction crew of Sebastian Moss and Dan Oravasaari are back, and what better way to make a comeback than by calling out another ‘journalist?’ - PSLS (Ben Kuchera, Beyond: Two Souls, PS3)

Seems like a decent game, I personally have no interest in it, not my cup of tea, but with so many good games out for the PS3, and then preparing for PS4 launch, I'm not losing any sleep over skipping on this title.

been playing the game, over 7 hours in and as a indigo prophecy and heavy rain fan, B2S is better than both when it comes to gameplay, story i haven't finished yet but till now its keeping pace and overall has been excellent

best review i have found so far has been rev3games, not because they gave it 5/5 because others have given it that too. but because Tara doesn't like quick time events and she reviewed B2S and loved it, check it out

so far 73 on metacritic. not good. even gears of war judgment scored better
showtimefolks  +   782d ago
please just don't off overall reviews, look at how many 90s and 5/5 it got, this is one of those love/hate and no middle ground sort of game

try it if you like david cage's other games

It seems the negative reviews don't come from people not understanding david cage's work as much as the story being that of a B movie, at least in their opinion.Ive never played the game.
showtimefolks  +   782d ago
You look at IGN for example the person reviewing that didn't play David cage's other games and she didn't like gameplay. I mean come on, going not B2S you knew the gameplay is exact copy of heavy rain with improvements

Also how come some reviewers loved the sour while other said it was all vet the place

Take it from another game, I am almost finished with the game. It's an amazing journey to take. After the 3rd hour or so the story picks up and damn man that's a thriller ride

I will say it again don't let the negative reviews hold you back, when gaming media is either loving or hating than play it for yourself and make up our own mind

If you liked indigo prophecy or heavy rain than you will love it, simple as that

Did you really have to pull out the tired cod/madden excuse? Lots of reviewers who loved Heavy Rain hate Beyond so let's put away this silly excuse shall we?

Also, there are plenty of 6's and 7's so it isn't all love/hate, there are a healthy sprinklings of men's out there too for the game.

By the way, reviewers are gamers too.

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
showtimefolks  +   782d ago
yeh your opinion matters so much, heavy rain is an excellent game, and so was indigo prophecy but i guess your best game is every COD and Madden
Lykon  +   782d ago
I've played a couple of the earlier COD's single player... but not really into war shooters and definitely not online COD. I'm pleased you enjoy them (heavy rain etc) . I kind of like the idea but not the implementation. And I find Cage's enthusiasm for himself a bit odious.

I don't care if it's not universally getting 5/5's and 10/10's. I had this game on my radar somewhat, but wasn't too hyped about it. Then I went and downloaded the demo and my friend's place, and my two other friends watched me as I played through it.

Now, I don't have too many issues with Quick Timer Events, but I'm not crazy about them either. It took me a little while to get used to the controls, but even though I wasn't crazy about the controls, the characters, the atmosphere, the writing, the performances, etc. just blew me away.

I mean, I was really attached to the main character after just playing that demo. My friends and I are now looking forward to picking this game up soon. Even if the gameplay isn't your cup of tea, you can still have a lot of fun if you like a good story. Plus it's really fun playing as Aiden. This is a VERY creative game and a welcome change of pace from the usual stuff that gets released.

This game is surely overrated, the story seems like the typical Hollywood-joke, why? Where is the fun in it, the story is not even inspiring, the characters come off as unnatural even though they are realistic, where is the point of this product? If David Cage likes making movies he should make movies, because games are not meant to be this way, videogames should be fun, the interactivity should get bigger, you should play the game and not the game you.

It amazes me reading through the comments that most of these people likely didn't even read the article.

The article is not inherently about Beyond: Two Souls as much as it is about the ethics (or lack thereof) of a high profile reviewer playing about 4 hours of a game (less than half), calling it quits, and then writing an "extended preview" as some kind of definitive official review, when it clearly can not be called as such.

Regardless of your feelings on a form of media.... finish it before passing official judgement, especially when it's your job.

The guys at Daily Reaction just proved there are some under handing going on in the review process of some well known sites.

Every review for games whether they be good or bad should all be taken with a 'grain of salt' just cause of stories like this. Some of these guys call themselves 'professionals' & take for granted the job they have. Some of us regular folks would love to be in their shoes.
