PSXE Poll Update: Most Gamers Say Beyond Is Masterful
Beyond: Two Souls saw quite the disparity in critical reception.
Some reviews were as low as 4 and 5, while others were 9+. Obviously, it's one of those love/hate things, so we wanted to see which side our community was on. As it turns out, the majority say that Quantic Dream has done it again.
Although we at PSXE were somewhat disappointed that Beyond didn't live up to our lofty expectations (honestly, I wanted another Heavy Rain), we acknowledged that it had a superb story, fantastic acting, and some really intriguing characters. Not enough was done with either the plot or characters, as they both lacked a certain dimension, and action sequences that use QTE just don't work very well. But other than that, if you're a lover of great interactive drama experiences, it's a no-brainer: You gotta play it. Chances are, you'll love it, as many clearly do.
This week, we want to know what you think about the unfortunate Watch Dogs delay. The anticipated new IP from Ubisoft won't be here until next year, and it was supposed to be a major highlight of the fall lineup. How disappointed are you? ...or do you care at all?
