Beyond: Two Souls definitely improve on Heavy Rain in a few areas, but the story just didn’t have the same impact for me. The cleaner interface and tighter controls make the experience a lot more streamlined, but the way that the story jumps around makes it a bit less immersive in my opinion. The visuals, animations and voice acting are all top-notch and Beyond: Two Souls is without a doubt one of the best looking games on the system. There is plenty of variety, but sadly also lots of padding that ultimately drags the experience down a notch or two.
Gameplay: A streamlined interface and better controls, but the story is not as gripping as Heavy Rain.
Graphics: Some of the best visuals you will ever see on PS3.
Sound: Using professional actors to provide the voices made all the difference in the world
