Beyond: Two Souls Review | Quarter to Three

"But Beyond: Two Souls is far worse than convenient, facile, and ridiculous. It’s overall tone is low-key and morose, without energy or enthusiasm. Scenes drag out, with long pauses. Glances shift awkwardly. Character models fidget. This is about an eight hour game, but I’d estimate two or three of those hours are pregnant pauses."

Another review I just don't get. I'd rate the game at least a 3/5! The game was great IMO.

AAACE51516d ago

I'd consider it more of an interactive movie than a game! I have only played the demo, but based on what I experienced, as a game a 1/5 seems right. As an Interactive movie, a 4/5 seems to fit.

a game, in case you dont know it, is any form of entertainment where the participant(s) has to obey a certain number of rules.

there are many types of games and Beyond is just one of these.

regarding the review, this website gave 3 stars to TLOU, 1 star to Halo4 and a low score as well to Max Payne 3. what a retard!


xHeavYx1516d ago

This website always downgraded PlayStation games, they gave the lowest Metacritic score to TLOU

theRell1516d ago

Halo 4's score sounds about right though.

i dont understand all this hate.. the game is phenomenal .. such a fantastic time

and a mix between movie and games....

in the end it just offers something that cant be seen on a Hollywood movie .. nor on a standard game

that today are either FPS or ThirdPS ...

a AAA game thats actually refreshing and good..

the reviewer is such an attention whore just like that fatty over Destructoid

DigitalRaptor1516d ago

Hahaha. But Tom Chick gave The Last of Us a 6/10. bet you love him now. ;)

And calling Jim Sterling of Dtoid an attention whore, even those he's one of the most brutally honest and entertaining journos out there, is ridiculous. I remember he gave RE6 the 3/10 it deserved. I didn't quite agree with his 5/10 Beyond: Two Souls review, but at least he has integrity.

Tom Chick has no integrity, whatsoever.

TekoIie1516d ago

It's quartertothree for gods sake.

Its the same site which gave Halo 4 a 1/5 and Uncharted 3 a 2/5. This sites writers are effectively professional trolls.

linkenski1516d ago

I think the points are very valid. When a game's only selling point is having a good interactive story, then it'd better be good and Beyond doesn't go far beyond (punz) the good stories there're out there in the rest of the industry... in fact, it doesn't even meet that level at all. It's very good because of... stuff, I can't put my fingers on. I guess it's the acting, the graphics, the music and the scenes that are actually well-done but the main plot is really unfocused and cliched and half the scenes are complete non-sense.

1/5 though? Aw man, that's being too harsh, too IMO

Good review from tom chick !

InTheLab1516d ago

Tom chick is everything that's wrong with reviews and the fools that follow him are even worse.

@ Tom Chick
It's not working. Just give it up.

HammadTheBeast1516d ago

Just like the 6/10 for Uncharted, 4/10 for Halo, and 6/10 for Last of Us, right?

With such varied reviews I'm going to wait until its £10. It might be great and it might also be the opposite.

FriedGoat1516d ago

I'm going to wait until it's next to nothing too, EU blanket censorship AGAIN by Sony. Second hand for me I'm not encouraging my game being altered in the UK because of Germanies stupid laws.

Why cant they just make separate censored german versions like they used to, or like Microsoft do?

DOMination-1516d ago

Because they can't be arsed and don't care about consumers as much as N4G thinks
