    I did not know a thing of Cage’s work prior to reviewing Beyond: Two Souls, but the excellent storytelling, the spot-on acting and the technical prowess that explodes out of the PlayStation 4 has made me a huge fan instantly.

    Beyond: Two Souls is back on PlayStation 4 with an enhanced graphic and the same interesting and emotional story, representing a great opportunity for those who didn’t play it two years ago on PS3.

    Beyond: Two Souls is still an intriguing piece of digital narrative. It has some plot flaws, but living Jodie's story in the new straight order is refreshing, and some of the improved visual effects are mesmerizing.

    Beyond has its ups and downs, and this version doesn't really improve that. The visuals get slightly better and the whole experience gets tweaked, but nothing relevant if you already played it.

    For me the most important feature of this remaster is the inclusion of the optional chronological mode. It makes the story a bit less flashy but way easier to comprehend. [01/2016, p.65]

    This two year old adventure looks great on PS4. And with the addition of playing the episodes in chronological order this is clearly the best version of Beyond. Nonetheless some of the old basic problems remain.

    The visuals still impress, but for a game obsessed with storytelling at all costs the dopey plot and underwritten characters in no way make up for the lack of gameplay.

I don't normally like the action genre but this thing was fun. Sometimes I lost track of the objective though and wandered off the wrong way. You get options to get revenge, to help and to cause havoc and it is incredibly well made. It is the most professional looking game I've ever seen and what a great pile of mini stories that all role up in to one big story. The overall score on this is criminal. It is a gaming masterpiece. It was great to see the making of videos after I played it too, the production effort really shows. Don't spoil it by watching things on it, just play it. Get PS Now for a month, you will get 3 nights out of this and then you have 200 games left to get your claws in to as well.

    I can't understand the low scores. I hate Hollywood but this is Hollywood done pretty much right.

It pulls you in multiple directions, simultaneously. The acting, story telling and last but not least, the technology; all superb. I often found myself taking multiple screen shots and video clips, so I could remember the experience. Much like I've done in all of the Uncharted Games.

    Frankly, I'm a bit peeved at some of these reviews. How can you look at a piece of art like this, with all the excellent fundamentals that make a great experience and call it bad? Just because it's not a matter of your preference? Meh, the world we live in.

    To the people behind this emotional tycoon that instantly makes you reminisce your time spent in the world upon completion. I applaud you. I respect you. I urge you, bring us back to this world. I truly hope that I can revisit this landscape someday. Thank you for giving me this experience.

    Pros: Atmosphere, Story telling, Emotional Grip, Acting, Technology/Graphical Prowess, 'A true journey'

    Recommendations: Expand on the combat and make the movement for humans a bit more freelanced and fluid.

    Again, thank you for this experience.

No se puede esperar mucho por tanto en cuanto a jugabilidad ya que lo que prima en este género es la historia. Gráficamente está muy bien, espectacular interpretación de los actores y gran labor de los desarrolladores al reflejarlo en el juego. La historia tiene una buena trama y personajes realmente carismáticos, hecho en falta cierta libertad en cuanto a las acciones que te permite tomar, las opciones están limitadas por el hilo narrativo que te quieren contar, pero aún así me ha gustado bastante. Las animaciones son una pasada, tienen mucho detalle y no se nota para nada la transición entre unas y otras. Por último, los controles son interesantes, es de las pocas desarrolladores que aprovechan todas las opciones que ofrece el dualshock 4, los quick time events están bien implementados y son bastante inmersivos si bien la parte en que controlamos a Eiden creo que se podría pulir algo más. Lo recomiendo si os gusta el género. Historia 7, Arte 9, Jugabilidad 7. Expand

    Ellen Page proves once again that she is an incredibley talented actress with a knack for motion capture work. Beyond Two Souls plays likeEllen Page proves once again that she is an incredibley talented actress with a knack for motion capture work. Beyond Two Souls plays like Heavy Rain but less clunky and smoother. The story set around a supernatural theme keeps you guessing until the last through different chapters of Jodie's life with this supernatural entity, all that with Willem Dafoe playing the supporting role really helps create a gripping story with top quality characters. If you game for the story this is not one you want to miss! Expand
