Beyond: Two Souls Review - JPS

"Beyond: Two Souls is the latest game from the creative mind of David Cage. His previous game called Heavy Rain was critically acclaimed thanks to its excellent storyline and unique gameplay. Beyond: Two Souls is similar to Heavy Rain in a lot of ways, although it adds elements of its own too to make the experience different." - JPS

...and that's why I'm buying it. :)

And the user score has gone down since this morning...with fanboys throwing 0's at it. -_- I hate that Metacritic doesn't monitor the user ratings.

If Heavy Rain is Cage’s Raging Bull, then Beyond: Two Souls is easily his Casino.

I bet Cage starts recycling his actors

Did you two actually compared David Cage games to two of the best movies ever made?

Jesus christ...

As a Scorsese fan I cannot let that go. In terms of narrative, characterisation and aesthetics Heavy rain was far closer to an episode of NCIS than Raging bull, same goes for Indigo prophecy. I love what Cage is trying to do with gaming as a medium but artistically his work is hokey and clichėd as all hell. Po-faced seriousness, rainy windows and cello music does not automatically make something mature. Until people stop letting Cage get away with this thirteen year old's idea of what 'grown up storytelling' is we're not going to see the great work he is capable of.

Now click disagree and downvote me because it kinda sorta seems like maybe I was saying something bad about the Playstation and let's just keep this artistically stunted medium where it is. Where we take our exploding helicopters and cheesy one dimensional characters with a side of cello music because we're mature and growned up.

No, it's a fair assessment and mimics some of the more valid criticisms about this game and Heavy Rain. It's a very blunt and forced way of telling a story. I'd appreciate some improvements and actual constructive criticism might help him get better.

Uh-oh. The king can't let it go!

What the hell does the fact that I am royalty have to do with anything?

I'm playing the game, and I love it. All the haters out there can lick it, suck it, and swallow it down.
