If you’re looking for clarity on whether Sony’s much-anticipated PS3 adventure game Beyond: Two Souls is worth picking up, you might want to try a psychic. The new effort from developer David Cage and Quantic Dream is splitting game critics right down the middle.
Cage has plenty of experience with polarizing pieces of work. His past two games, Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain, pushed gaming’s cinematic boundaries but faced some irksome gameplay issues. Beyond is cut from the same cloth, featuring virtual versions of Hollywood heavyweights Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe in a spooky tale about spirits, loneliness, and what lies on the Other Side.
