Summary

Beyond: Two Souls is so unique, powerful and engaging that it's easy to forgive some of its gameplay flaws. Quite simply, a stunning production.

We like

  • Visually it's in a different league to many games on PS3. Stunning facial animation and locations.
  • Great characters, great plot, excellent twists and a fitting conclusion.
  • The action sequences are superb and switching between Jodie and Aiden delivers a unique mechanic.

We dislike

  • Some interactions are over excessive and gameplay plods along on occasions
  • The action sequences are so good, we would have liked to have seen more.
