    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.

The game looks so much better than the PS4 version and runs much better too. There were a few bugs occasionally, including one that caused the game to crash every couple of hours. Other than that, the story and gameplay are amazing. I know some people like to say that the movement and gameplay is sluggish, and i would have to disagree. There are so many different tools you can get a hold of that alter the experience and equipment that can make traversing certain landscapes much easier. It sometimes seems as if people just like to **** on this game because it is a 'walking simulator' but it is so much more than that. I do find it strange that there are so many people leaving negative reviews saying the story and gameplay are boring when, according to steam, only 3.7% of people have actually completed the game (this only accounts for steam, but nobody in their right mind would buy it on Epic Games Launcher anyways) . It can be said that this game is definitely not for everyone. If you have a short attention span, or do not like very story intense games, then i would say it is not worth a purchase. It is also worth adding that the first few hours are much slower than later on. So far, i have immensely enjoyed my experience with the game, even with it being a second play through, and am one achievement away from getting them all. One of the best story games in recent times.

The annoyance of the grade of eatingDeathstranding is a great piece of work, a game graffifically as well as a story of high-end top class. The annoyance of the grade of eating some of the graphic bugs and other little bugs, eg buildings walls disappears, the objects are going to be invisible, the character hovers in the air. These things have been corrected before the release of the game would be worth the full ratings. That will have to settle for the average game among though it is many parts of a great and good game.
