GET THIS GAME,
This review is from: Beyond: Two Souls (PS3) (Video Game)
In my opinion, Beyond: Two Souls is a masterpiece. Sure you can argue that it's too linear, and that your choices have limited impact, but this game is seriously impressive. The attachment you form with the characters, particularly Jodie, is simply incredible, especially seeing as they're fictional. Ellen Page's portrayal was outstanding, as was Willem Defoe's, and I played it again as soon as I had finished it.
Now this game may not be for everyone, as it's certainly not the most uplifting game to play. But my God, after you finish it do you want to go back and play it all over again. No other game, with perhaps the exception of Mass Effect 3, has given me such a feels trip and led me to feel such raw empathy with the characters. It is a testament to this game that this is the first review I have ever written for any item EVER, despite me having an account for 5 years.
The game looks beautiful, the facial animation is great, the voice acting is superlative and I'm not ashamed to say I had a tear in my eye at points- bare in mind I'm a very British 17 year old.
Seriously, I cannot recommend this game enough, if you like a game for the story as opposed to the mindless mowing down of people in online multiplayer. Get it. Get it now.
