The visuals still impress, but for a game obsessed with storytelling at all costs the dopey plot and underwritten characters in no way make up for the lack of gameplay.

David Cage's best "interactive drama" experiment to date comes to PS4 in better shape than ever.

If you've been scared off of Cage's work before and you don't mind a tale that takes itself much too seriously, you might just be hooked by Jodie's journey.

Beyond: Two Souls is still an intriguing piece of digital narrative. It has some plot flaws, but living Jodie's story in the new straight order is refreshing, and some of the improved visual effects are mesmerizing.

Beyond: Two Souls feels like a Frankenstein creature; a television show with interactivity jammed in for the sake of it.

The PC port stands as the definitive way to experience Beyond: Two Souls, boasting a higher frame cap, solid keyboard & mouse controls, and a remix mode. These additions, however, do nothing to remedy the poorly-aged, cliché-ridden script and inconsistent chapters you may remember, but do highlight the game's strong visuals and emphasis on variety.

Beyond: Two Souls is strange game that isn't quite sure what it wants to be. There are moments where the title pushes boundaries and attempts things that most developers wouldn't even care to try, but the plotting is uneven and the more touching sequences are undone by prolonged periods of outright idiocy. Ellen Page is excellent throughout and the presentation is staggering on the PS4 – it's just best to know what you're getting into before venturing headfirst into the Infraworld.

If you've not played Quantic Dreams' pair of interactive dramas on the PlayStation 3, they're worth playing on Sony's newest console - if you can get past the lack of player agency as their inexorable progress pulls you through to their conclusions.

Beyond: Two Souls would've fared a lot better if it had even more visual detail, other control options and extra content to make it more like a director's cut. As it stands, though, it's a great conversion of a pretty good Quantic Dream development, mind its storytelling issues and quick-time event gameplay.
