Beyond: Two Souls Review [NoSleepGamer]

NoSleepGamer writes: My current lasting impressions of Beyond: Two Souls, is that it excels with a well written story (despite the unnecessary timeline editing), it has some of the best acting I’ve seen in games or films and has terrific visuals that keep blurring the lines between gaming and movies. Yet after all this time with the game and the time spent writing this review, I’m still not sure how good of a game it is. Probably because it’s hard to judge it as a game. Life and death was in your hands at every turn with Heavy Rain, here you’re more of a spectator, but a spectator at a show worth seeing.

Yes, I enjoyed Beyond: Two Souls, much like I’d enjoy a good story in a TV series filled with actors on the form of their life. And that’s the game’s problem, it’s so passive, I just didn’t feel involved enough. Compared to Heavy Rain, it’s rarely clear as to how or when you’re affecting the plot or events. Nevertheless, it’s hard to not recommend trying it for yourself. (Beyond: Two Souls, PS3) 74/100
