I was pretty excited about beyond two souls. I really liked indigo prophecy and heavy rain, but good lord beyond was terrible. The gameplay wasn't really all that bad, but it did seem to require less input from the player compared to previous games and some of the controls were terrible. However, the biggest problems was the narrative structure, the all over the place approach was terrible and hard to put a cohesive story together.
Honestly, if anything I think the reviewers were very forgiving with their scores. Beyond two souls was a big let down...
