The Most Compelling Story I've Ever Seen in a Game

Never before have I seen a more engaging and emotionally involving story in a video game. Ellen Page's acting is phenomenal as well as Willem Dafoe's. The actors' likeness are captured using mocap technology, and the graphics are so realistic, sometimes you need to ask yourself, is that a cgi or a real person?
The Quick Time Events are sometimes a little rough around the edges, but this isn't a game of skill. It's an interactive movie. If you can keep in sight of that, you'll have a great time with Beyond: Two Souls.
This game was amazing. The story line was very original and the put me in positions that I never knew a video game could recreate.
The voice overs were great as well. This game played just like Heavy Rain and has high replay value.

Its funny how people fail to realize that gaming is more than action, its about what the game IS and what is shows, and what the devs put into what makes the game. Iam so glad that I can appreciate this game for what it is, ART. I enjoy the fact that I can have a cerebral experience and marvel at the sights and sounds of this game..
I just recently finished all of the content, and unlocked all of the bonuses and various endings, which rounded out the story of the game and made me appreciate it even more.. Sad are those of you that wont even take the opportunity to be marveled every once in a while.. sad.. sad.. sad..
I'll gladly play all of your "beyonds" in lieu of all of your "call of duties"...
