    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.

    It's an amazing game. New, fresh games are always welcomed. It's not your typical gameplay that we saw already a thousand times. It'sIt's an amazing game. New, fresh games are always welcomed. It's not your typical gameplay that we saw already a thousand times. It's something truly new. The first 6-10 hours can be tedious, but after that the game opens up and it becomes a true masterpiece.

    In other games the "action" happens at point A or B. In this game, the action is in between. The walking, climbing, building structures to ease the way and so on. That is the gameplay. And it's really good.

    A game from the great game designer Hideo Kojima. On PC look much better than on PS4 + high fps, I'm glad that the game came out on PC.

    I have around 32 hours played on this game between both PS4 and PC. I have not yet finished the game but I have to say i really am enjoyingI have around 32 hours played on this game between both PS4 and PC. I have not yet finished the game but I have to say i really am enjoying playing through this game WHEN IT WORKS. I was going to give the game an 8/10 but after a few crashes, AI quality and some bugs, the game has dropped majorly for me.

    Editing this after yet another crash, the game at the moment is unplayable for me.The game looks great, the soundtrack is awesome and the story is fine with me, i'm actually looking forward to seeing what happens if the game will ever let me continue playing it. Fix the bugs, glitches and crashes and this review will rise back to an 8. The more crashes that happen, the more i will come back an re-edit and keep lowering that score.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Seriously dont buy this game, its absolutely crap. There is so many cinematics that sometimes it feels just like you are watching a movie were you are given a choice in which direction you want the movie to go towards. Expand
