Sony president still 'excited' for Beyond dev's next game

We weren't particularly fond of Beyond: Two Souls. And it appears many critics are torn on Quantic Dream's anticipated follow-up to Heavy Rain. In spite of tepid critical reaction, Sony is still excited for the team's next game set for PS4.

Beyond: Two Souls review: caged ambitions

Beyond: Two Souls review: caged ambitions

Some would argue that an artist is only as good as his tools. For Beyond: Two Souls, writer and director David Cage has been given resources that would make any director--Hollywood or not--jealous. Cage has at his disposal some of the best visual tech of the generation, a stunning motion capture suite, and two Academy Award-nominated actors. Sony has pulled out all the stops.

The end result is a game that improves upon nearly every aspect of Quantic Dream's first PS3 effort, Heavy Rain. Beyond leaps over the uncanny valley thanks to its new engine and motion capture tech. Gone are the awkwardly-accented performances, only to be replaced by Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe. Even the gameplay has been significantly improved, moving away from the QTE button-mashing that defined Heavy Rain. Every aspect of Beyond is a generational leap. Too bad it's all wasted on a story that isn't worth telling.
