I agree with the review. I found the game very incredible. Not interactive? It is very interactive. Only noobs don't see the unique gameplay mechanics and creativity in utilizing an entity within the world of Beyond: Two Souls. It amazes me how people form opinions without playing it.

Also someone said it had bad controls? Suck at games much? There is absolutely noting wrong with them. Anyway, I found this game very unique and a step up from Heavy Rain.

Why are people so hostile towards this game? It's not like this game will change every other game into an "interactive movie". Personally I thinks it's great that Quantic Dream is trying something different.

@gMcR They aren't trying something different. Three of Quantic Dreams only four games ever made are governed entirely by QTE, since the 90s. Fahrenheit Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, and Beyond Two Souls. I'm pretty sure their only real game is Omikron.

@hateyourface

I was supporting your very own statement with an explanation. You got a better reason for why people hate or are you just really trying to live up to your handle?

@immortaltech6 @hateyourface @gMcR And you don't see how calling people you know nothing about, "miserable losers with nothing going for themselves" is absolutely hateful? I suppose the concept of contradicting oneself is far too advanced for you, bubbles.

@stage4saiyan Id actually find Jim more agreeable. He talks about 'issues' too but the whole 'narrative dissonance' thing in Bioshock Inf didn't bother him. He said folks were questioning Booker's acts of violence in a game that is about violence.

@masterwsgamer Mostly because they are in a position where their wrong opinion can potentially sway people who don't know better.

@masterwsgamer Indeed, unless the opinions contradict hard facts or are very trivial things such as a learning curve, or the controls are hard to get used to, then I don't see the point in getting extremely angered at some of these reviews.

What scandal? People have differing opinions and shouldn't feel like they should "appeal to the majority" with a score or a review. It's called a subjective analysis for a reason. We are reading the review to see how that PARTICULAR person FELT about it. Gamers these days make me sad.

@foxhound_fox i feel people lose that the person that reviews the game isn't speaking for the majority of the world. Or for you . I personally don't even like tom's review style or care to hear his opinion.

He tries to make it all poetic and chooses weird things to promote as positive or negative. (IMO)

Oh yay, I'm so pleased that we have forced-to-watch-unskipable ads at the beginning of your video that I have to watch over and over again in case of buffering problems, logging-in to comment or if I reload the page.


Suddenly I'm in the market for games I hate and products I will never use. It's so awesome, thanks Gamepspot! (Sorry Johneh)

I never understood why gamers WANT all reviews to match the metacritic average. In the old days of EGM review crew, they had 4 different reviewers review one game. At least at the beginning, you knew the way different reviewers scored games and how closely their opinion matches yours. It got Editor's Gold or Platinum if they whole crew agreed on high scores. No reason to ever be upset and you knew who the game appeals to.

Only as time went on did you get the impression that they were forced to hand out gold and platinum scores.

@jer_1 haha I had the same thing happening to me. He called it "morally reprehensible". Right, because the fact I don't want to see an ad is immoral. *rolls eyes*

@jer_1 It seems to be working fine now, well at least for me. It only didn't work on chrome in my case, tried it on IE and it worked, but it is now working on my chrome now.

@DiverseGamer @jer_1 I was told that they are "fixing it". I think it's a well known problem. Some jackass was trying to tell me I was a scumbag for using adblocker on this site yesterday, it was pretty hilarious!

I agree though, it's annoying being force fed crap I really have no interest in, such is life in our day and age. Corporations are apparently even in the pockets of the people who watch the vids somehow.

i dunno what all the fuss is about, it's one guys opinion. if you don't like it, go to a different site and lick their balls instead of smacking GS...at least they aren't afraid to rate games based on their opinions and not on what all the other reveiewers gave the game on metacritic. if everyone rated games like that, that would destroy objectivity as well, scaring reviewers into changing their opinions on the respective game for the sake of the "metacritic average." I would much rather see differing opinions than the same rehashed one over and over...BUT HEY TO EACH THEIR OWN EH?!


btw i played the game, i think i'm getting close to the end. so far it's been quite a ride, even got my girlfriend to play and watch who absolutely detests the fact that i play video games on my days off...and she hates ellen page! the game itself is great, the point of this game was to stray away from the regular game mechanics everyone is so used to, and if you actually played the game (no not the demo) you would see how expertly quanticdream has woven their premise into the gameplay mechanics. when you have to control the action on screen, it makes you feel more connected to Jodie, whereas watching a movie on-screen would not pull me into the game the same way.. call me a hipster, a troll, whatever, but the fact is i enjoyed the game when some others didn't. it's actually given me confidence in going out to try games that i thought looked interesting, which got bad reviews. If anything, i'm extremely grateful to Tom for giving this game a high score, as it was my trust in GS that led me to buy this game..and i don't regret it one bit.
