    Death Stranding is an absolute masterpiece. It’s a triumph of one man’s unrelenting, uncompromised vision of hope. So powerful was this vision that it gave a deeply cynical individual like me a reason to hope. It’s a technological achievement on so many levels. But perhaps most of all, its revolutionary story, outstanding characters, and singular theme of human connection is the lingering triumph of Death Stranding. It is simply one of the greatest games I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. It is, in every single glorious way, a Hideo Kojima Game.

    Death Stranding is a must have on PC as it was on PS4, now unlocking bold new features such as 60+ fps even on less performing machines.

    Hideo Kojima's PlayStation 4 title Death Stranding has landed on PC, bringing with it a new standard of console ports.

    The PC version of Death Stranding is clearly the superior version as it's better looking, but also offers more content, a new difficulty setting, and a few Easter eggs to Valve Software's franchises. On the other hand the game's initial drawbacks are still present, like that awful advertisement for an energy drink, or a messy UI.

    As thrilling as it is boring, as fantastic as it is mundane, but one thing’s for sure - there’s truly nothing else like it.

    Death Stranding is asking you to find variety in a daily rut, cooperation possibilities for a character who has fear of contact, scientific explanations in clear-cut mysticism. Today, you’re annoyed that the story doesn’t move forward, and you have to trek into the same ghost-infested area as before, but tomorrow you’ll gladly spend a few hours hauling resources for a new highway and feeling good about it. This source of joy is very weird and defies explanation.

    I have never experienced a game like this. I don’t think we will experience another game like this for quite some time.

    The story is in true
    I have never experienced a game like this. I don’t think we will experience another game like this for quite some time.

    The story is in true Kohima fashion - mysterious and extremely unique. As a completionist, I felt at times disconnected from the complex story. If I had stuck to the main objectives in closer succession to one another I would have been fully engaged. (I believe this is a problem in all open world games, not just Death Stranding. The story is unparalleled and is a must for those who love psi-fi and horror-esq material.

    I got the platinum for this game. If you had asked me my score up one completion it would have been a 10/10. However, after sitting on it for some time I have realized that this is not a game for everyone. You can not pick this up like you can an Assassins Creed, Call of Duty, Mario Kart, or Spider-Man and love it. It takes patience, appreciation for a story, and time (something that professional game critics do not have, in my opinion). I spent 200 hours in this game.

    This game deserves a good score for its beauty, unique story, and attempt to do what others have not done before - and for doing it decently.
