Jan 3, 2020After the past three years of cryptic and confusing teaser trailers, the question on everyone’s lips has been, “What exactly is DeathAfter the past three years of cryptic and confusing teaser trailers, the question on everyone’s lips has been, “What exactly is Death Stranding
?” Well, now we know, and the answer is… complicated. The first game from famed designer Hideo Kojima since his dramatic departure from publisher Konami and his long-running Metal Gear franchise is a boldly inventive slab of sci-fi, fastidiously crafted to host to some of the most breathtaking sights I’ve ever witnessed in any medium – video game or otherwise. It’s also a cross-country crawl that frequently finds itself mired in an exhausting amount of inventory management, backtracking, one-note mission design, and unprecedentedly arduous travel. It’s evident that Kojima and his team at Kojima Productions have worked extremely hard to build Death Stranding, but it’s also painfully clear that they expect us to match their determination in order to fully enjoy it.
The “Death Stranding” in question is the name given to a cataclysmic event that only small pockets of humanity, the Monster Energy Drink corporation, and an apparently universally accepted Facebook-style social status system have survived. Since the Death Stranding, natural wildlife has been wiped out and rain has transformed into “Timefall”, a deadly form of precipitation that instantly ages everything it touches. Lurking within each downpour are the BTs (“Beached Things”), paranormal entities who prey indiscriminately on survivors, leaving society confined to the safety of subterranean shelters.
Autoplay setting: On
You are Sam Porter Bridges (Norman Reedus), a post-apocalyptic postman with a ghost-detecting baby strapped to his chest named BB who, like most infants, is as adorable as he is insufferable. Sam’s quest is certainly a compelling one; to reconnect the isolated remnants of civilisation by completing an endurance-testing sequence of delivery jobs from one city to the next, earning the trust of their citizens, and bringing them back online in the government’s “Chiral Network” as he makes his pilgrimage west across North America.
Sam is allied in his pursuit by a quirky cast of characters with quirkier names like Heartman and Die-hardman, and opposed by Troy Baker’s wonderfully maniacal villain Higgs, who has an appetite for both licking faces and chewing scenery. Sam has additional motivation to undertake his epic expedition: his sister Amelie is held hostage by Higgs on America’s westernmost edge, a destination appropriately called Edge Knot City.

If Death Stranding sounds like a series of glorified fetch quests, it’s because that’s exactly what it is.
It’s definitely an intriguing story setup, but if you think that playing the role of a courier makes it sound as though Death Stranding could be one continent-spanning series of glorified fetch quests, it’s because that’s exactly what it is. The vast majority of its 70 main story missions are structured in the same way as the optional side missions we’ve all run in countless other open-world games. With the exception of certain tutorial missions which introduce the basics of the combat system, boss fights, and a handful of other combat-oriented diversions, advancing the plot in Death Stranding amounts to taking item X from location A to location B, over and over again. Sounds pretty repetitive, right? Well, the good news is that there are also side missions in Death Stranding. The bad news is that these side missions are also fetch quests, undertaken mainly to unlock additional items or customisation options.
The Walking Dread
What makes the repetitive objectives somewhat bearable is that the scorched landscape of Death Stranding is staggering in scale and rich in detail, to the point that initially I wanted to slow down and pore over every inch. And it’s just as well, because I wasn’t really given any say in the matter; the opening hours are so ploddingly paced that it makes the whole thing seem like a personal attack on the speedrunning community.… Expand
Jan 4, 2020This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is the pinnacle of gaming and any other game that you play will never be the same. Despite what the ratings say this game is not for children and delves deeper into the dark and sinister side of the M&M characters that we've never seen before. Hideo Kojima out did himself in this game and combined every gaming genre in one to create the best experience. Although time traveling and bringing Satoru Iwata back from the dead to create this gaming experience was wide felt through the M&M gaming fanbase as a risky decision, in the end it proved to have worked fantastically. Him being the co-director allowed all of the great additions and heavy writing felt in the romantic part of the first-person shooter section between the green and yellow M&M. The DLC for unlocking the sixth M&M color, which cost $4.20, was well worth the addition of the red M&M story line and the backstabbing of the yellow M&M taking green from him. I had to put down the game after seeing the death scene for the yellow M&M. I felt that. The M18 is way too overpowered for that section. The Wii motion controls make the horror section in the rat den more terrifying than you would believe. The reappearance of the yellow M&M comes back and haunts red as orange is there to help red cope with his actions with a night at the local M&M's strip club. The ending of act 4 left much desired for a sequel. As of 2020, we've still heard nothing of the new releases for the game. Nothing will top the experience that this game has had on me and the M&M gaming fanbase, but we'll have to see. BOAT.… Expand
