Beyond: Two Souls is pretty good but it has some freezing problems.

A lot of good games are coming out! I do not accept random FR requests.

not sure about this. I encountered one only at Navajo chapter but it was just brief.

if you don't play this game, you ARE part of the f***ing problem.

I'm really liking it so far. There's been one kind of silly part, but Cage does a decent job at tying it back into the world. So far the writing has seemed pretty strong--not hugely remarkable or stunning, but I don't see any glaring problems with it.

Sucks so many people hate it. Not even average would be the world to describe their opinions.

I want to believe it isn't a bad game but... it might be the Killer is Dead of Quantic Dream.

huge Suda51 and Killer is Dead was ok, but not necessarily a bad game.

Hey, I'll be the first to admit Quantic Dream's games are far from perfect. The writing is usually spotty, and sometimes it just goes plain bat****. That said, I don't think you should listen to the naysayers. So many people are assuming Beyond is awful without even really giving it a chance. Oh, it's got Ellen Page in it; oh, it's got QTEs; oh, it's about a spirit. So what? Page's performance is great; the QTEs do actually work; and the spirit stuff is surprisingly creative and interesting.

Ultimately, the game may not get the praise it deserves (or it might just get the opposite--I haven't finished it yet) as a result of the work that came before it, but I think the important thing is that the people who do play it and really give it a shot will appreciate it. David Cage, as pretentious and maybe pompous as he is, does have something here that I'd hate to see die out. The guy's stubborn, though--he and his studio will continue doing what they've been doing, count on it.

It has much weaker storyline, less twists... overall Heavy Rain is a better choice, the Beyond Two souls has better is the graphics and Willem Dafoe.
