    An emotionally powerful masterpiece.

    I've played through Quantic Dream's games such as Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain. Both of those games were amazing games that changed the way I thought about how games can tell a story. I appreciated the fact that they ... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Beyond: Two Souls

  • Review Score:6

    Honest review from a big fan of David Cage

    First I'd like to state I don't consider 6 a bad score. 6 is above mediocre which is in my opinion worth a rental. Now what you won't hear me say in this review is that "this isn't a game it tries to hard to be a movie"... Read Full Review

    Beyond: Two Souls Was Beyond Expectations

    Beyond: Two Souls was a fantastic journey with a great story and greatly detailed scenes. After playing the Demo first my hopes were not to high as I was feeling a 6 or 7 rating, which is good but not great. My feeling q... Read Full Review

    An amazing and unique experience but a bit overly dejecting and technically flawed.

    The story of Beyond Two Souls is terrific and the cast's performances were top notch, but the plot really needed some better emotional balancing and maybe chapter rearrangement. From start to finish the game is soul wr... Read Full Review

    Great Story Affair

    Even though at times you will find that the linear control you have over certain areas a little underwhelming you will be completely mesmerized at how engaging those those scenes can be. The voice acting and graphical e... Read Full Review

    A wonderfully crafted tale that ties in both cinema and gaming into one, even if a bit flawed.

    This is the most difficult game I’ve ever had to review. How do you classify it by genre when there’s not much to the actual “game” element? How do you classify a linear narrative that involves th... Read Full Review

    A mediocre experience.

    I've finished both Indigo Prophecy (Fahrenheit) and Heavy Rain. Beyond Two Souls feels way too similar to both in terms of narrative and interactivity, but on the two most important aspects of a 'video game' ... Read Full Review

    Incomparable Immersion and Storytelling

    First, these are most likely the best graphics to date to land on the PS3. Right from the menu screen, as you start, you see the quality just from the face of Jodie that takes up half of your HDTV. The moment you start ... Read Full Review

    Two Souls For The Wrong Medium

    Quantic Dream's titles are unlike any other in this industry and once again they've delivered in their own way. Beyond: Two Souls substitutes traditional tropes in video games and results in the game's importance exceedi... Read Full Review
