A Stellr Cast for a Genre Defining Game:

BEYOND: Two Souls will feature Oscar nominee Ellen Page in the lead role of Jodie Holmes, a young woman who possesses supernatural powers through her link to an invisible entity. Ellen is supported by Willem Dafoe who plays Nathan Dawkins, an enigmatic scientist working for a government division studying paranormal activities. Dawkins’ professional curiosity in Jodie, driven by personal tragedy, is a central theme in BEYOND: Two Souls, and provides a rich and evocative narrative that only Dafoe’s subtleties of performance could fully realise.

Play Through a Lifetime:

In BEYOND: Two Souls, gamers will play through fifteen years of Jodie’s story, experiencing the most striking moments of her life. As she traverses the globe, Jodie will face incredible challenges set against a backdrop of emotionally charged events, the likes of which have never before been seen in a video game.

Like its predecessor Heavy Rain, BEYOND: Two Souls will allow players to shape the course of the story through their decisions and actions taken in the game.

Key Features:

  • Delve into a gripping and unpredictable story with a Hollywood blockbuster cast featuring Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe.
  • Create your own personal journey as your decisions and actions shape the outcome of the story.
  • Take full control of Jodie as well as the mysterious entity in spectacular action and adventure sequences.
  • Experience the new cutting-edge technology from Quantic Dream in what promise to be one of the best-looking games ever to be seen on PS3.

Great story and visuals

Total :

4

Beyond Two souls is a superb story telling game. It consists of action, drama, sci-fi, etc. . All in just one game. The visuals are phenomenal and the voice acting top notch. The game-play itself is a little weird but the good thing is that each time you play the game you will follow a different path by choosing different actions to do. It would be great if it gave the player more control over the game but it is a must by my point of view. The steelbook edition content and the steelbook again is worth the money. Get a very big amount of extra content.

This is indeed an experience that is worth having, because they managed to create a good story and the actors do a great job in making it alive. The steel book is beautiful, the only bad thing is that the soundtrack included as a bonus is not complete, it's just three tracks.

Storytelling at its best

Total :

Great Game, Great Story, Great Narrative, Great Acting, Great Music....but still not game of the year candidate. Mainly beacause it's not as innovative as Heavy Rain was back than. But nevertheless it's an engaging experience to have a glimp at the life of Jodie Holmes. The Zavvi price for the Special Edition was beautiful, costing same as the normal edition? I had to buy it! Although the Special Edition does not contain anything worthwhile, except the steelbook case, which I love, Quantic Dream gives you only digital items, like a 30+ minutes gameplay which isn't very exciting at all, a soundtrack with only 4 tracks and some Behind the Scenes videos. But considering the price of this edition I can easily overlook the absent of something more physical, like a poster or an art book or something...

Exciting Interactive Thriller (with a few forgivable control quirks)

Total :

4

I thoroughly enjoyed playing through (most) of BEYOND with Jody, Ellen Page's character. The story is bordering between science fiction & mystery, the graphics are richly detailed in most settings, although there could have been a few more "adventure style" interactions instead of making most of the settings static and non-interactive decorations. Storytelling is one of the gripes I had with BEYOND at a few spots: the jumping the story does follows no order or logic - the time jumps you have to face are sometimes pretty random and don't add or take anything from the story. Instead of playing Jody's story in a linear fashion, you will be jumping around a lot, so be prepared. The other thing a lot of (sometimes bad) press has prepared me for was control scheme or the lack of one rather. Instead of having free reign on Jody in "Action" sequences, it is expected of you to "react" to movements that are sometimes hard to follow or see in the heat of the moment. If you react "wrong" you just get a different result I presume, not having played multiple times just yet. But sometimes you wish you had an inkling of what direction was the "right" one to be flawless in that moment. You could switch on "easy" mode where arrows clearly point in the "right" direction. But come on, who does that? It pulls you out completely by dimming the screen and showing a big fat "that's the right way, moron" style arrow. Progression-wise it makes no difference if you hit or miss, the story continues, but you might have some blue eye or broken nose to tell the tale of your failure for you. Other than the above gripes I think the press didn't do Beyond all the justice it deserves and we should give kudos to Sony for keeping up the exclusivity on their platform with creative games other publishers wouldn't bother spending money on, let alone market them in a way Sony did. Definitely worth your money if you enjoy Science Ficion, Mystery (Thrillers) in theater and can look over some gripes with controls & some weak spots in storytelling - overall a strong tale you will get told and truly heart-gripping at times.

I am a big fan of Heavy Rain, so had great hopes for Beyond: Two Souls. The gameplay is one of the main polarising aspects of this game. You have to accept that the gameplay is similar to Heavy Rain, in that most of it is interacting with the enviroment, reacting to quick-time events, and steering a conversation. The story line is amazing. It's told in a non-linear fashion, which can be confusing at times, but is feels very rewarding when you start to piece it all together in your head. Beyond was an emotional rollercoaster, and I loved every minute of it.

To be honest, i was so looking forward to this game. But is it a game. I feel so detached from this....eeeer game. Or is it a movie, i can sometimes control??? All i seem to do, for the main character, Jodie, is every now and again, follow onscreen instructions, (right thumbstick up, down, right, up, etc). And walk. Lots of walking. Oh, then run, then follow more onscreen button prompts. You, as a player, never feel immersed, or in danger, or threatened. Your character never dies, you just immediately replay the very last scene you failed at. It took me three go`s to step over some broken glass in a door panel, (yes, it gets that mundane), by pressing right trigger for her right leg, then left trigger for...you guessed it....her left leg. But i didnt do it correctly. Let go of the right trigger too early....Fail!!! Booooring!!! And for Aiden, her unseen friend, all you ever have to do, is hold the left 1 button,, then pull or push both sticks in the desired direction. This either moves objects or people. Thats as far as Aiden go`s. He just do`s the stuff Jodie cant, from the other side of locked doors. Seriously, not one taxing puzzle, and i`m playing it on the so-called hard (for expert gamers) mode. Pish. So simple, my 5 year old grandsons could play it. I just recently finished `Last Of Us` on hard, and i can honestly say, i had to play certain scenes, over and over, trying different routes, tactics, weapons, before i eventually succeded that particular level, but i was exhausted, panicked and emotionally moved by what and how i had done, which gave the inevitable cut scene that followed even more gravitas. I felt i had achieved something. In `Beyond Two Souls`, all i feel is....`Wow, lovely facial movements, those eyes look real`. And that brings me to the Graphics. Wow!!! The human faces are almost photo realistic. Body movements occasionally poor, but on the whole, ok. Dust, rain, snow and partical effects are awesome. Background scenery, generally great. Internal, office buildings, generally poor. So across the board, i liked `Last of Us` much more. Story wise..... It jumps timelines all over the place. It might make sense at the end, (i`m just under half way through, i just dont have the urge to play it . It became a bit let down, and my desire was gone, unlike `L.O.Us` which i couldnt wait to get home from work, to play it again`). But, the story, some of it works, some dont. But i did especially enjoy the `Homeless Jodie, on the streets` storyline. (so far). Beautifully told, rendered, with the most exciting gameplay of the game so far. This is my first time reviewing a game, well, anything to be honest. But it really has divided me, more than any game before. Normally, i either love, or hate a game, but this.....hmmmmm, i dont really know....yet!!! Thats why i decided to share my thoughts. I hope this helps.

After loving Farenheit and enjoying Heavy Rain, I couldn't wait for the new game from David Gage and Quantic Dream. Despite the generally amazing graphics and big budget movie style - this game plays more like a movie than an actual game, with the odd button press and no danger of dying throughout, and I was a little disappointed by the time I got to the end. As an experience, I'm glad I played but feel this is a title to rent rather than buy. Here's hoping David can include a bit more game when he comes to release his next product.

First off I wasn't sure if I should get the game as I had heard bad reviews close to the release. I was a big fan of heavy rains look and story (not so much a fan of the controls) which made me want this title. Sony released the demo and after I played that I was sold! They have improved on the control system from heavy rain and it plays a whole lot better, I'm still not a big fan though as I much prefer having full control if a character but this helps the story to unfold. The graphics are amazing and the cast of actors works really well. Even after playing the demo though I was going to wait awhile for to get the game as I still have GTA V I'm playing through but I'm a sucker for a steel book edition of any game and bluray :-)

Beyond Two Souls is an amazing PS3 exclusive that I advise anyone with a PS3 to play. The special edition includes a steelbook cover which is really nice and some digital content such as PSN avatars, an extra mission, PS3 Dynamic Theme, Making of videos and the games soundtrack. The extra content was good but not great in my opinion, but it was definitely worth it. The only thing I didn't like about the game was the way the story was set out as chapters go back and forth the main characters life which was annoying and a bit confusing for me. Apart from that Ellen Page and Willam Defoe give an amazing performance, not the best PS3 exclusive this year but still worth buying.

Beyond Two Souls is a great game, I advise if you have a PS3 and enjoyed Heavy Rain you should play this game. The special edition could include more items because in my opinion there isn't enough for a special edition. The games story is a bit weird because it goes back and forth the main characters (Jodie Holmes) life which is kind of distracting and confusing at times. Despite these, the game is really good.

Graphically amazing, but very story heavy. Don't expect to do much in this game, far more watching then interaction. Fighting parts are awfully executed. Buy this only if you want to see excellent voice acting from William and Ellen. Contrasts between this are heavy rain are non comparable in my view. Heavy rain would win every time

I played the demo for Beyond: Two Souls Special Edition on PSN and really enjoyed it so I had no hesitation in pre ordering it. Before receiving my game, the reviews started to appear and in the main were fairly mediocre so I thought I had pre-ordered a dud. Not so, this is an excellent cinematic experience of a game with a powerful narrative. Of the games, I have played this year and that includes GTA V and The Last of Us, I would say that this and Splinter Cell Blacklist are deserved 5* games - GTA V and The Last of Us, I would give 4 1/2*. Beyond Two Souls is best played with a free phone app controller - I use the android version. This is much more straightforward than using the dual shock. A real contender for game of the the year.
