    Death Stranding is creating a new game genre and therefore paves its own path towards more interactive experiences. It is a brave work thanks to its novelty, which fortunately is not a bragging right for its creators, as it may have seemed, but an exceptional title that will reward the brave who play it.

    Following years of mysterious anticipation, Death Stranding delivers on all fronts. An accomplished, fascinating set of gameplay mechanics allow you to make deliveries the way you want to, while social features let the game live on once you've put the controller down. It may become slightly tiresome as you hit the halfway mark, but the phenomenal narrative is on hand to pick things back up again and its outstanding visuals are the cherry on top. Death Stranding doesn’t raise the bar for any particular genre, it creates an entirely new one.

    Death Stranding is not a “fun” game, but it’s an important and meaningful experience that earns its payoff through every bit of frustration and slog. Its a look at life and death, connection and solitude; a game about building up what matters most and supporting each other selflessly. You’ll be bored at times and downright frustrated at others, but it comes with a great reward at the end that is made sweeter by the trials that precede it. It’s brilliantly unique in its design and implementation of online elements.

    Death Stranding is one of those epic games where you reach the ending after many, many hours and you have the sense that you played something unique, fresh and a game that could be a comparative point for other games to come. Kojima reaffirms our acknowledgment for his talent of creating engrossing worlds, both in terms of lore and visuals, with well-designed gameplay. What drags it down from a higher grade is its overreliance in, basically, one quest type and the utterly derivative action sequences (thankfully not many of them).

    Death Stranding might be the most unique AAA game of the generation, with an addictive core gameplay loop that manages to combine a new concept with tried-and-true design philosophies, and a story that - while messy - has a sweet emotional core that’s likely to stick with players long after the credits roll.

    Death Stranding is, first of all, a game which, tries, experiments, and is full of ideas. Playing the role of the lonely Sam Porter Bridges, the player is connected with everyone else thanks to a clever system of collaboration, which works really well thanks to a thoughtful game design. But to enjoy the long run through what seems to be the most beautiful Iceland landscape, you will have to go through a thick, complex and most of all tedious story, which seems to never know when to stop, or being simply essential.

    Death Stranding is an irredeemable piece of garbage that should serve as a warning to publishers who give developers carte blanche to create ‘art’.

    Nunca he evaluado un juego sin pasármelo primero, por eso antes de escribir esto no solo me he pasado el juego (54 horas) sino que también heNunca he evaluado un juego sin pasármelo primero, por eso antes de escribir esto no solo me he pasado el juego (54 horas) sino que también he conseguido el platino (79 horas). Para mí es un juego excelente, una historia y narrativa muy buena, personajes muy carismáticos, especialmente Mads Mikkelsen, un gameplay que, a pesar de que a priori no me llamara, engancha como pocos juegos (79 horas en 11 días de los cuales 25 horas son después de ver el final de la historia lo dicen todo), la banda sonora y el apartado gráfico y artístico son de otro mundo. Tiene sus fallos, uno de ellos son los jefes EV, que a pesar de que son visualmente espectaculares, las mecánicas que tienen y tu poca velocidad de movimiento en combate los hace poco memorables, no es así en los jefes humanos que sí me han parecido muy buenos, también debo mencionar que los capítulos 3 y 6 pueden llegar a hacerse algo largos, pero a parte de eso el juego no me ha aburrido en ningún momento. Los campamentos de mulas y terroristas en "difícil" (que es como yo he jugado) me han parecido un reto y debes usar muy bien la estrategia y ser preciso, si vas a lo loco vas a morir, no eres Rambo ni Solid Snake, lo que muchos tachan de mal shooter a mí me parece algo realista, no me parecería normal que un hombre que se dedica a repartir paquetes empiece a repartir tiros y cargarse una base de terroristas él solo. En resumen, un gran juego me ha parecido uno de los mejores de esta generación y un soplo de aire fresco, espero que Kojima vuelva a hacer otros juegos diferentes, la industria está saturada de siempre lo mismo. Recomiendo a todo el mundo que haya jugado juegos más calmados que le de una oportunidad, no creo que decepcione a muchos (obviamente si sois jugadores que buscáis acción a raudales no lo compréis).
