    Hideo Kojima’s latest creation might not be his best ever, although some may argue, but it is definitely his most unique work yet. Death Stranding requires time to show you what it has to offer, and no matter if you love them or hate them, you’ll see many other developers use them in the next generation of video games.

    Death Stranding is dizzying, unshakable in its belief it is doing something worthwhile, and it's one of the most important games of this decade.

    Hideo Kojima has fully weaponized the walking simulator writing a love letter to the delivery service workers of our shipping and handling world. Death Stranding is about ending isolation, and does it so gracefully that I can't imagine it being done better than it's done here.

    Death Stranding is a very weird game that amazes us with its narrative, complex lore and atmosphere, but falls short of expectations with it's wacky rhythm and it's dull gameplay.

    Overall, Death Stranding is a good game but not quite something that I’d really recommend. Yet, at the same time, Death Stranding is still an incredibly unique game and worth having a go at if you’re looking for something a bit out of the ordinary.

    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’.

    The plot is just super, like the music with the atmosphere, Death standing aids in tension and does not let go even after the final credits.

    Empezare por las cosas positivas, la música, realmente la música en este videojuego es muy buena, diría que lo mejor junto a los gráficos, yEmpezare por las cosas positivas, la música, realmente la música en este videojuego es muy buena, diría que lo mejor junto a los gráficos, y se acabaron las cosas buenas, el resto es infumable, consiste básicamente en llevar paquetes del punto A al punto B mientras un bebe llora. Las físicas malas, el gameplay malo y carece de posibilidades, el combate nefasto, el mundo vacío, Si realmente kojima quería hacer un genero nuevo de este videojuego, lo único que ha conseguido nuevo es llevar el aburrimiento a un nivel jamas conocido, el nivel kojima. Realmente uno se plantea, valoraran de forma positiva este videojuego a la hora de buscar trabajo como repartidor en una compañía de mensajería?. Aburrido y absurdo. Correos, ya tiene su simulador personal. Expand
