Technologically a step forward, but gameplay-wise it is a regression. Bag of Games writes that Quantic Dream's latest game aims to further merge the gap between video games and film.
I wanted this to be so much more... At least Last of Us has Ellen Page too ^^
I've played 4h and so far the game has been very good! If you liked Heavy Rain, you'll like this too. Don't expect too much of that "game aspect". This is an experience that delivers a story. The gaming part is little bit.. missing.
This is the only game that my Girlfriend will actually sit down and play it with me.
Maybe she got jealous cause the game was holding your hand a lot more than she does xD
Bubs for hilarity!
I like that they took into development the fact that they knew Heavy Rain was many times played with a friend (or beloved). :)
I like this game, but it feels like a step back from what we got from Heavy Rain story wise... Here its like past, present and future.. Past, present and future.. THE WHOLE TIME!!! No consistency!!
Then lesson is .... Don't try to make original game.
Yeah! All other games should be canceled and the only game should be call of duty! Zero story, minimal devopment time, and gameplay so simple you'd think it was a Facebook game like angry birds and candy crush! Screw originality, garbage sequels and rehashes forever!!!!! But seriously, gtfo troll. Doesn't school start in like an hour?
dude calm down. I was being sarcastic. I want variety i am getting tired of the same games over and over and over again. I am glad he made this game and cannot wait to play it. And no school doesn't not start in 1 hour, I work night shift for 2 weeks and i browse a lot, lol
...that isn't very good. Fixed that for you Plenty of original games have gotten great reviews, off the top of my head, Heavy Rain.
Just because a game is "original", doesn't automatically make it good. Only hipsters put a correlation like that together. Note: I haven't played Beyond, so my comment isn't a stab at that game, but I'm generally saying that about all games. Original games need to also be GOOD games if they are to leave a positive impression.
Originality is certainly what the game industry needs, so I applaud Cage and company for trying something new here. How else will the industry grow if risks are not taken? This does not give them a free pass, though. The experience must be judged in terms of quality and impact, just as any game would. Heavy Rain is one of my favorite games of this generation. It isn't wrong to expect something more from Quantic Dream here. Their lack of storytelling ability should not come at the expense of an engaging and interesting game. They have pared the gameplay back so much that most of what's left here is story, a silly, convoluted mess of a story that doesn't do the game's presentation or the actors involved justice.
