BEYOND: Two Souls

"Journey into a unique, interactive, psychological thriller from the makers of the award-winning smash hit Heavy Rain."

This is a superb game! Utterly beautiful and emotional. The story follows the life of Jodie Holmes (voiced by Ellen Page) and Aiden, a invisible entity who has been with Jodie since birth and often aids her with his supernatural powers as they fight through life. The graphics are stunning and the characters and their relationships are hard not to get attached to.

The most brilliant thing about Quantic Dream games are that the decisions you make during game play can alter the story and the end of the game, so on a later play through you can get a totally different outcome. Her life and fate is really in your hands and I think that's what makes their games really special.

I loved this game. The journey is so beautiful and emotional, it's a wild ride without the heart pounding panic other games leave me with. You definitely do not need to be a hardcore gamer as there are many on-screen prompts and it plays out more like an interactive movie than a shoot-em-up game. I was lucky enough to be able to reserve and rent it with Fatso Games Club and received it on release day. It took me about 2 days to play through as I got so caught up in it. I will definitely be purchasing it at a later date as its current price is a bit steep for me, nzgameshop will most likely be my point of call as they are always better priced than our local retailers.
