Death Stranding Reviews Summary

Summary: 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.

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.
