#BeyondTwoSouls Intense, engaging story but can feel disjointed. At heart it's a gorgeous looking interactive Movie with dodgy controls

Likes

Great Story and wonderful characters. Does some interesting ideas with regards to control methods to try and encourage people who don't play many video games.

Dislikes

Limited Interactions with the character. Inconsistent button combinations, sometimes you would asked to press one button combination to climb a ladder, and then another time a different combo.

Watchability: Is this game Living Room Material?

Yes

What is Watchability?

A lot of games are being played in the living room, where other people come and go. Some games are more suitable than others for that kind of viewing. To that end, Mini Game Reviews is evaluating game titles to see if they can be classified as "Living Room Material"

A very well told story with almost film like qualities. Even if you don't like this type of story there are passages where it is almost impossible not to watch.

The film like qualities makes this game fantastic to watch, if you like the genre.

Not much to dislike from a spectators point of view.

    Agree completely… Two soul’s is a film locked inside a game. And the interaction allows you to own the the story and make it subtly your own. A captivating adventure that makes you care about a character in a way that has been seen rarely in games (The Last Of Us). Replay value lies in the wish to see how you can better compete the adventure however, this act would, of me, distract from the emotions felt in my first viewing. Flawless, story telling at its best…
