    Beyond Two souls is the same as the PS4 version. It thus magnifies the narration with a technical outcome that amplifies everything. More graceful than ever, this port offers its most beautiful version here. As a classic, Beyond Two Souls is now part of the history of video games.

    Quantic Dream proves that even a six-year-old game can be full of new life on a converted gaming platform.

    Beyond Two Souls is at last available on PC, and with a more recent release than Heavy Rain, it looks gorgeous with 4K and 60 FPS. If you haven't yet finished the game on consoles, or haven't tried it yet, go for the PC version.

    Beyond Two Souls is simply a neat portage of the PS4 version. Prettier and smoother, the writing is still solid but beware: use a controller, rather than the usual keyboard/mouse combo.

    Beyond Two Souls is a mixed game, with many elements of the story amounting to binary choices, some aspects of the narrative being poorly fleshed out and gameplay regularly amounting to choosing whether to be terrible or not. At the same time though, there are enough satisfying moments that provoke empathy for Paige's character and moral quandary to intrigue and entertain those drawn to coming of age stories and tales of the supernatural.

    Visually this interactive experience directed by Heavy Rain’s David Cage and starring Elaine Page as well as Willem Dafoe is stunning, but the mechanics as well as the narrative are mostly average.

    When the dust settles, Beyond: Two Souls offers up both the best and worst of Quantic Dream, with an intoxicating desire for ambition and spectacle lost in the failure to deliver on the detail.

    At first, sorry for my bad English. Im trying without translator :)
    Story, soundtrack is awesome. Story is what I love in this game so much.

    Story, soundtrack is awesome. Story is what I love in this game so much. Its one of the games when I... actually cried at some moment. Well only games when i cried at all was Unravel, Detroit, Bioshock Infinite, Journey and may be something else.
    Visual is ok for 2020, its 2013 game anyway, but i think for 2013 it was cool graphics.
    Only thing i dont like in this game is game mode choosing (from noob to "normal" player). Tbh "normal" mode seems like hardmode bcs its QTE without hints at all (i cant explain it clearly but u can try in demo version for example). And the main problem with that is controlling Aiden. You can free control him (WASD and u can go whenever you want) only in normal mode . But in "noob" mode you are moving only from dot to dot (or from point to point. idk how to say it correctly) by mouse so its not free)
    And also the second tiny problem is letterboxing. May be for someone its huge and annoying problem. Around 40% of screen is just black only to let players feel like its film. I dont like it but im used to.
    Anyway u can patch it and remove letterboxing. I`d want to see some official patches for PC to let players remove it. They can just add the option.

I tried playing inTo be honest the story in this game could have been better but it just felt like a bunch of random scenes thrown together. I tried playing in both modes but both still felt thrown together.
    I feel like the "Remixed" version should have been altered more then just reordering the scenes. Maybe added something to reference previous scenes more to stop it feeling like a bunch of random times. The only way to explain it is that each scene felt like I was playing as a different person. Which just made the story feel unattractive. You couldn't build up any sort of bond to characters. Its a shame because the story could have been good if it was executed better.
    The parts where you had the green smoke and had to direct it into Jodie were stupidly annoying and I just could not grasp it. The orb just doesn't move around smooth enough to do the puzzle thing making it overly frustrating so I ended up skipping over them parts all together. Mite just be me thou.
    The decisions you make all in all mean basically nothing so don't worry about what you do because it makes no difference.
    The PC port is a bit bad to be honest. Although I have not played the console version. Playing on kbm (mouse and keyboard) is stupidly difficult and boringly easy depending on if you chose "I have played video games" or "I haven't played video games" If you say you haven't then you can't even control Aiden which makes the game terrible. Why can't I have easier controls but control Aiden freely? That would make kbm allot more usable. You can play on an Xbox controller though but if you don't have one then I feel sorry for you.
    The graphics in this game are pretty good and the actors done a great job.
    I really wanted to enjoy this game more but the way the scenes were put together made that to difficult. I am glad that they done a much better job in Detroit: Become human.
