Beyond: Two Souls Review - AusGamer

David Cage may have succeeded at making his most cinematic game yet, but if I’d paid $8 to see Beyond on the cinema’s cheap day I would have walked out well before the credits rolled.

After the 3 self-indulging opening paragraphs (seriously why are they included in this review) the review itself isn't that bad as this game, like Heavy Rain, polarised people (just one of those games). I do think 2.5 is a bit too low (I would give that score to a completely broken game)

the review itself isnt bad .the score itself is bit too low

A score of 2.5 should basically be reserved for games which are near unplayable. A 2.5 should be a game without a story (not just one with dodgy writing), lacklustre gameplay, and a lack of vision (in my opinion, of course).

A score like this is just a cry for hits.

I have not actually read the review, because I detest this practice.

Polarising to say the least. Somehow I'm actually still keen to experience this myself. Obviously I'm not going to pay full price for it.

I'll wait until it's R150 used ($15) which shouldn't take too long, I've already seen one going for R400.
As far as the review goes, I respect everybody's opinion no matter how much I may disagree with them. To say only the positive reviews are valid is laughable.

The game (gamplay, story, graphics and presentation) is very well put together. It's Cage's finest game...and it's surprisingly enjoyable through the end.

Whether you pick it up now or later you will not be disappointed.

I agree with dc1. This game is unlike anything you will ever experience this gen because you just connect with. There aren't many games like that. If you call yourself a gamer, please come to the game with an open mind and put fanboy issues aside. Yes, the experience comes with its own issues like many other games out there. But issues aside, what you will receive that many games can't give, is a very rewarding and highly engaging experience. Its a perfect blend of cinematography and interactive entertainment, a way in which the game should be judged. I really hope the game is successful because we need more games like it. Please, please give it a chance. Just go along with the ride.

ahaha what a review

cmon 2.5 no is too low...

Now come on. I thought the game was a little clunky in areas and the choices felt a little pointless, but in no way would I have given it that low of a score.

I'd give it a 7/10 max. It's in no way perfect but it tells a great story (in my eyes anyway. I managed to follow it whilst many didnt), with great performances and a very nice ending. Surprising for me too.

(THEN AGAIN, I just looked at the score... which is what I shouldn't be doing. But this is just my opinion from looking at the score)
