    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 masterpiece of game design which surpasses your every expectation.

    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.

    With production values that are through the roof and an extremely engaging story, Death Stranding is among Hideo Kojima's best games. The moment-to-moment gameplay, however, falls short due to its repetitiveness, and the long stretches without any real action make it difficult to recommend the game to all open-world fans. Death Stranding is something different, and only approaching it with an open mind will reveal the brilliance of its themes, its characters and its hauntingly beautiful dystopian world.

    An unconventional game from an unconventional creator who largely succeeds at what he is attempting.

    Death Stranding remains a fascinating experience of highly inspired post-apocalyptic science fiction even on PC. However, the porting is a bit lacking in terms of technical improvements, which are noticeable but not nearly as impressive as we hoped for.

    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.

    It's a single player masterpiece. I really enjoyed this game. The story i sometimes confusing but also great that's not surprising for Hideo games.

    Honestly loved the game. It’s basically a movie game. Cliff was a master class character. The gameplay was a bit boring but the story was amazing.

    The performance are really bad. Texture glitch, bugs, framerates drops and sometimes even crash.
    I've reset my PC two times yesterday, only just for play at least 2 hours with this.
    (and one hour of these two hours only for the cutscenes)
    And I've checked the performance of my PC, and it's all set with the recommended stuff.
    I think that they should resolve this issue soon, but it's disappointing see this kind of problems. Because in this state it hard even only open this.

    On balance this is a summary of what this deliveryboy simulator is. One of the worst games I have ever played.
    A game so bad that it turns out to be flatter and actually worse than Agony. And that alone says a lot.

    Il peggior gioco della generazione, e la peggiore schifezza di open world vuoto mai stato creato!
    Uno schifo completo, dall'orrida storia
    Il peggior gioco della generazione, e la peggiore schifezza di open world vuoto mai stato creato!
    Uno schifo completo, dall'orrida storia senza logica e senso, al gameplay noioso e sostanzialmente NOIOSO.
    Fare fetch quests per fare il fattorino fa schifo.
    Risparmiate i vostri soldi, perché questo schifo non merita nemmeno un centesimo. Il peggior gioco di Kojima.
