Beyond: Two Souls
Beyond: Two Souls is an improvement over David Cage and Quantic Dream's previous efforts. It probably isn’t enough to radically change your opinion about their work, but it is still improvement. The concept of having bare bones, cinematic action to tell a story with rich characters works in this game without major problems. If you loved Heavy Rain, then I can easily recommend this game, as it is an improvement in just about every area that is important to an adventure game. If, on the other hand, the concept doesn’t appeal to you, then you should probably avoid it. I’m not sure that the concept even appeals to me enough to play a game like this more than once every other year. I did enjoy the time that I spent with Beyond: Two Souls though. It is the first game from this studio that I have enjoyed not just because I was intrigued by it, but because it executes its concepts well and puts forth an all-around solid package.
