What the reviewers are saying about Beyond: Two Souls on PS4
Check out below what the reviewers are saying about Beyond: Two Souls, remastered for PlayStation 4:
In terms of performance, there isn’t much to worry about during gameplay – the PS4 version runs at 30 FPS. The 1080p resolution visuals bring other improvements, including motion blur, bloom and depth of field effects. Lighting and shadows have also been improved. Dynamic lighting has a range of nuances, from the light bouncing off of the pre-baked environments to the sweat dripping down some one’s cheek and the enhanced sub surface scattering that comes with it.
Visually, there are notable differences and many of them are due to the PS4 version running at 1080p. The Bokeh effect doesn’t look pixelated anymore, and there are significant improvements in lighting and textures.
While Beyond starts off with a bang, you’ll eventually come to the conclusion that Cage offers up a sloppy mess. Jodie gets by on blind luck more than she should; the amount of sheer coincidences that present themselves is astonishing. Without ruining too much, Cage resorts on a huge helping of unnecessary – and very racist — Navajo spiritualism to pad out his work near the game’s third act.
As far as the gameplay and controls go very little has changed. Your characters are a little less clumsy when moving around but other than that all your interactions with the game world are through pre-determined quick time event sequences.
