Video Games Made Me Do It reviews Beyond: Two Souls.
A truly fair assessment. Can't say the same for the ridiculous 2.5/10, 3/10, 4/10 and 5/10. At least most people who've had hands-on with the game can say it's something they've really enjoyed. Beyond was always going to be a game that people either understood and appreciated to some degree, or not, and it seems more people understood its message. I think all Quantic Dream needs to carry on doing is putting out games they are passionate about making, and hopefully the monotonous drones will eventually realise that these games were always meant to be different, David Cage was never going to be a voice that took over the industry, and harping on about "lack of gameplay" (even though you're in control most of the time) changes nothing. There are loads and loads of gamers who love and appreciate this kind of experience.
Finished it on Saturday and I have to say it Was good! Just wished it was more like Heavy Rain when it came to doing certain stages, like placing your fingers in awkward combo's just to pass that segment. B2S was just a press X every now and then... Kinda made me feel disconnected from the game from time to time doing so little in it.. Story is great though..
