From the makers of the award-winning smash hit Heavy Rain comes a unique, interactive psychological thriller developed exclusively for PlayStation®3. BEYOND: Two Souls blurs the lines of movie-making and gaming by featuring a brand-new engine, an immersive and evocative story and the best theatrical performances in gaming to date.
A Stellar Cast for a Genre Defining Game:
BEYOND: Two Souls will feature Oscar nominee Ellen Page in the lead role of Jodie Holmes, a young woman who possesses supernatural powers through her link to an invisible entity. Ellen is supported by Willem Dafoe who plays Nathan Dawkins, an enigmatic scientist working for a government division studying paranormal activities. Dawkins’ professional curiosity in Jodie, driven by personal tragedy, is a central theme in BEYOND: Two Souls, and provides a rich and evocative narrative that only Dafoe’s subtleties of performance could fully realise.
In BEYOND: Two Souls, gamers will play through fifteen years of Jodie’s story, experiencing the most striking moments of her life. As she traverses the globe, Jodie will face incredible challenges set against a backdrop of emotionally charged events, the likes of which have never before been seen in a video game.
Like its predecessor Heavy Rain, BEYOND: Two Souls will allow players to shape the course of the story through their decisions and actions taken in the game.

Top Customer Reviews
That said, I thought it was a phenomenal game. Although I wouldn't necessarily say I "enjoyed" it. The thing is, large parts of this game rely on your willingness to accept that a lot of mean, spiteful, heartless, manipulative and outright repulsive things are going to happen to the lead character. There are many sections where what you'll take from playing is how wretched and alienating the human spirit can be when faced with the idea of someone who's "different". I know a lot of people had a problem with the, er, distinctly downbeat tone of Heavy Rain, and I doubt those people will feel much different about Beyond.
But then there are also genuinely touching scenes that moved me. Scenes where simple love, kindness and acceptance can drag you back from the brink.
Then there's the control system. This isn't so much direct control of a character, as pointing the character in the direction of how you'd like things to play out. If you're willing to relinquish the micromanagement of every action in favour more detailed and varied second-to-second feedback onscreen, this can be a hugely rewarding game. If, on the other hand, you think games only work when the characters do stuff while the player is actively prodding buttons and twiddling sticks, you might not like this. Personally I'm happy with both, as long as they're done well.
Look, what I'm trying to say is this isn't your typical game, and it won't be for everyone.Read more ›
As a story driven game the player makes decisions that develop the characters personalities not just advance the storyline. This is the key ingredient that makes BTS work - you really start to believe in the characters the more you play. They have charisma and you care about what happens next and how the story will unfold. Ellen Page (Jodie) and Willem Dafoe (Prof. Dawkins) are perfectly cast in their roles, but the voice acting is quality all round.
As BTS is an interactive story the gameplay side has been kept limited. I didn't mind this as it kept the emphasis on the story, but as it's no FPS or stealth game it will not appeal to everyone. A lot of scenes rely on fast reaction button pressing and movements from the player although more standard gameplay is offered throughout too.
Another good thing is the story continues regardless of the player decisions. There's no "Game over and restart the level" here - each choice will simply lead to a different outcome. Although this means you finish quickly, the game can end in many different ways depending on your actions and choices so you can enjoy a second or third play through. You'll find making different decisions the following time round changes the story's feel completely so you won't just be going through the motions to see an alternative ending.
PLOT (OR LACK OF)
A huge failing. While it was an interesting idea to present the main character's story as a series of vignettes, the haphazard way in which the story jumps from child- to adulthood does not seem to have any purpose. What it creates, instead of mystery and suspense a la Heavy Rain, is a sense of confusion and detachment. You never really feel the story is continuous, or that each of the chapters serves to explain something relating to the main body of the story. You play through each chapter seemingly just to get to the end of it. While there are certain facets of the story that have the potential to be quite interesting, they're rarely explored in great detail, or you realise their bearing on the end of the game (which seeks to tie the preceding mess up in a neat bow) is relatively insignificant. Some really interesting characters are done away with in a matter of minutes, and then all of a sudden reappear at the end.Read more ›
