Beyond: Two Souls Reviews Round-up

An Interactive Action Adventure Drama Experience

Beyond: Two Souls

Gradly.net – 8/10

Beyond: Two Souls is not a game, but rather an interactive action adventure button mashing drama experience, this is why you will like it or hate it, and this is why the reviews scores are either very high, or very low.

Being not a game puts the player in an awkward situation, you are watching a movie rather than playing a game, this will upset some, but it’s a David Cage’s game after all! There is no hard or difficult challenges, no game over. The main protagonist will never die, and the story will branch depends on your decisions you make through the game with alleged 23 Different endings.

The graphics are a different story, its by far the most stunning good looking PS3 title, mixed with amazing score composed by Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe. Some spectacular scenery and locations top those found in the Last of Us and Uncharted series.

The game is linear and it follows the story of Jodie through here life, you will play segments of her life in chronological disorder, this jump in story telling will keep you demanding for more.

There are some control and mechanics issues, but the big issue in my opinion is the limited interaction you can do, there are really big environments, detailed rooms, and locations which you hardly explore making a big part of the game unplayable and wasted.

It’s a shame, because Beyond had the potential to be one of the most interesting games to be made this generation.

+ Stunning Graphics– Limited Exploration
+ Amazing Score– Control / Mechanics issues
+ Decent Story (Although with awkward plot)– The whole CIA missions seem like a filler
 – Meaningless Choices

Rating: 8/10

All Bad Things Must Come to an End

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad is over and Walter White‘s fate is revealed. Many had their expectations and leading up to the finale triyng to decipher the title “Felina“. By breaking down the word into its elemental parts: Fe + Li + Na = Iron + Lithium + Sodium = Blood + Meth + Tears. And this works very well. “Felina” is also an anagaram to the word finale. The actual usage of “Felina” is a reference to a song called “El Paso” by Marty Robbins. We saw a Marty Robbins cassette shot during the episode before the song played out.
