    Strands Alone

    I am a Kojima fan and love his style of cerebral game design and messaging. His games are special and yet still games that are fun at the core. He weaves that thread of making statements in a game that are not in your... Read Full Review

    Kojima is at it again

    If you enjoy being painfully punished by playing the most boring part of any game for hours on end, I think you might be missing a part of your cortex to be able to play this. Seriously, how is this title a 9? They used... Read Full Review

    how is this game a 9? its the most boring thing ever since trying to watch the squid games

    The plot is so pointlessly contrived, its like they used one of those AI plot generators to come up with this nonsense. And they don't even bother explaining a thing along the way. But none of that really matters, becaus... Read Full Review

    Superb achievement as a cinematic experience, the some things needed improvement

    It was my first experience with Hideo Kojima, and I can say I was impressed. Speaking about the positive, the game is out of this world when it comes to how immerse you'll become in it. It has a lot of cut scenes and it'... Read Full Review

    The stag and the pool.

    It is hard to rate Death Stranding, especially for someone who has played and holds dear Kojima's creations for over 20 years now. I was predisposed to like the game and fully enjoyed 100+ hours for full completion, but ... Read Full Review

    You have to play it to know it

    At times it may feel bored doing deliveries but finding new ways to do it makes it also a challenging task at times. Story line is good. But sometimes you want to go back to places and complete some task for fun but sto... Read Full Review

    Great atmosphere, fairly good story but annoying cut-scenes, physics and controls

    This game could have been great, but due to repetitive missions, buggy physics, badly optimized key/mouse controls and too many cut-scenes when doing things makes it more annoying than enjoyable for me. The music, story ... Read Full Review
