An EXPERIENCE filled with tears and jeers.

As an experience, Beyond: Two Souls is an intense and dramatic ride where you will laugh, cry, and mostly cry. But as a game, the challenge falls short- wait a second, that's right, there is none. Seriously, I'm pretty sure you can't die or fail at all in the game, even when you mess up the button prompts. It's not to say that Beyond is bad, it just shouldn't be considered a game. If you are a parent planing on buying the game for their child, here are some things you should know. And if you're anyone wanting to buy the game for yourself, stop reading and read another review because there are some major spoilers here. First, there are some very mature themes in this game, including, but not limited to child molestation, underage drinking, corrupted military officials, suicide, a mother having to give away her child, and of course, lots and lots of violence. It should be noted however that the player usually has a choice on how they can go about these situations. Although most bad situations inevitably happen anyway, the player still has some choice in the actions the protagonist takes. For example, in one scene the protagonist is at a party, and birthday girl offers you some beer. You have to option whether or not to actually drink it. As for sex, it really isn't anything you wouldn't see from a PG-13 movie. Jodie (the protagonist) gets naked a few times, but her breasts, butt, and private parts are never exposed. You have an option if you want to have sex or not, including a comment where Jodie says "We still have time before I have to go." to one of her possible love interests, but the sex itself is always cut out. There is also a scene where Jodie gets molested by three older men in her teens, but Aiden, the entity that is bound to her, kills them before they can do anything too graphic. Harsh language is also very frequent, especially from the main character, and can't be turned off. There is blood where it is necessary, and it also can't be turned off. The game (or whatever it's called) has a positive message at the end saying that loved ones will always be with you, even after they have passed. That being said, the game is also very depressing since nothing ever seems to go Jodie's way, and she can be seen frequently crying. This may not be a good idea if your teen is going through depression, because it might make them feel worse.

not for kids.

beyond two souls is an average game based on the similar game that David cage made heavy rain stars with two familiar actors Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe but parents due to the mature themes beyond two souls is not for kids this game is only for adults and parents you need to know that beyond two souls has some intense violence many in which Players can punch and kick human enemies, choke them and break their necks, and use guns and knives to kill soldiers. Blood appears around wounds. Assuming the role of a ghost, players can possess enemies and make them kill themselves. There are also scenes of torture, and one scenario depicts a trio of men attacking a young woman in a failed attempt to rape her although there is no sex or nudity there is Another scene shows a character propositioning fellatio, and yet another has the player's character actively delivering a baby only side angles with bare thighs are shown there is constant strong language used and there is smoking and drinking used such as beer and marijuana.
