    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.

    some games never get old and quantic dream's Beyond: two souls is one of them even though the game released 7 years ago.
    + narrative is great
    some games never get old and quantic dream's Beyond: two souls is one of them even though the game released 7 years ago.
    + narrative is great like others David Cage's games and featuring Willem Dafoe and Ellen Page makes the story even more interesting.
    + gameplay is enjoyable and Jodie-Aiden mechanisms are fun and innovative.
    - like Heavy Rain, controls are terrible with mouse and keyboard.
    - big black bars on screen are really annoying at least they could give us an option to remove it!

    Beyond: Two Souls is an engaging cinematic gaming experience led by two very talented actors, an iconic game of its genre that stands uprightBeyond: Two Souls is an engaging cinematic gaming experience led by two very talented actors, an iconic game of its genre that stands upright even 7 years after release -- which I think is an amazing feat.

    Unfortunately, looking at it beyond face value, Beyond: Two Souls is written with questionable creative decisions comprised of storytelling and world-building that is quite honestly all over the place. To add to this, any of the endings will leave you with more questions than answers, which makes for dissatisfaction as the credits roll.

    Nevertheless, its negligible price on PC makes this a suitable candidate to your backlog of adventure games. Good, but not great.

    An interesting premise that I'm not quite sure if this could be balanced. The controls are fine, not really something to write home about, butAn interesting premise that I'm not quite sure if this could be balanced. The controls are fine, not really something to write home about, but exponentially affects the experience overall. The story is the strongest aspect of the game and really something that I would say to people to check it out. Expand
