Death Stranding Review Summary

StrongCritic Consensus

A Unique Vision

Mysterious and unique in every facet.

Solid Performances

A star-studded cast mostly delivers.

A Slow Crawl

Patience is mandatory as the game can drag for the first many hours.

As divisive as it is intriguing, Death Stranding is the sort of game some will loath, but the vast majority have enjoyed Kojima's latest epic. Using strange new mechanics and introducing a world of his own creation, the polarizing director has made another title critics won't ever forget.

The coronavirus has made its themes more relevant than ever and while there are many odd decisions, in terms of plot and game design, the overall experience remains strangely engrossing.

The pillars of gameplay, combat, and story all bear the mark of creator Hideo Kojima, but none of them stand out or carry the experience
