PS3 | Beyond: Two Souls Pre-Owned

Beyond: Two Souls is another big stride into heavily narrative,driven games from Heavy Rain and Fahrenheit developer Quantic Dream. Yes, we've certainly had stories in games for a looooong time now, but not quite like Quantic Dream does them. The game follows Jodie, a young woman who has had a strange psychic connection to an entity called Aiden since birth. After frightening everyone around her with the strange abilities Aiden gives her, Jodie is taken into the care of a doctor, Nathan, and finds herself working for a government agency. Working for a government agency never goes smoothly for people with spooky powers, however, and she soon ends up on the run and trying to figure out the true nature of Aiden. The game plays out with the player controlling both Jodie and Aiden, directly and through a series of sophisticated QuickTime events. The real power of Beyond: Two Souls is in its story. It's a character,driven narrative that's got more in common with The X,Files than the usual all,out action and over,the,top antics of games. Hollywood character actors Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe have been brought in to play Jodie and Nathan, respectively, and bring both their voices and motion capture to their roles. Beyond: Two Souls is an interesting stride in games development that's sure to appeal to fans of Heavy Rain.
