Beyond: Two Souls looks good, and it has good acting, and it really wants to be an interactive movie, but I have a difficult time calling something a movie when it’s $60 and like ten hours long. This is a passive game. I want it to be more than that, but it’s not a breakthrough piece.
There are several walkthroughs and all the endings showing up on YouTube, so you could probably cut several different two-hour movies from all the footage online. That might be a more rewarding experience than actually “playing” this game.
It doesn’t seem all bad, though. The parts where you control Aiden – the supernatural soul of the two souls – seem pretty interesting. Being able to possess people and make them do what you want – now, that is a good game concept. Not sure if one already exists.
