He continued with a more in-depth look at the secluded quarters of Sam Porter Bridges, the main character played by Norman Reedus. It was an eye-opening demo, revealing things that appalled everyone.

Spoiler Alert: Death Stranding Mixed Reviews
As anyone who followed the development of the game ought to have expected, this turned out to be arguably one of the most estranging game in years. The cumulative pages on OpenCritic and Metacritic range from perfect scores down to Stevivor’s 3.5/10, where Stevie Wright stated his review saying ‘Even if Death Stranding’s narrative was good—and it’s not—a game ought to be original in the sense of its gameplay. What you find is frustrating; abysmal, tedious and beyond repair, and should be avoided at all costs.’

That being said, there are also reviews ranging in the middle of the spectrum. IGN’s Tristan Ogilvie, take as an example, rated Death Stranding 6.8/10, stating that Death Stranding delivers a breathtaking world of supernatural sci-fi. Still, its gameplay struggles to add to its already tight weight.

Looking at the average review score on both OpenCritic and Metacritic is already at 84, which can only mean there are more positive reviews out there from critics. For instance Gamespot’s Kallie Plagge loved Death Stranding, as is evident from the 9/10 score as with her final remarks, ‘Death Stranding is complex, dense, and powerful, strong in its belief in the power of love and hope when faced with sweeping difficulty’

Although Eurogamer doesn’t rate games, they did give good comments like, best games and that was the case for Death Stranding. Oil Welsh wrote: ‘Hideo Kojima’s first post-Metal gear solid is a messy, permissive vanity project—but yet a true original.’

Finally, the Guardian’s Dan Dawkins gave it a 4 out of 5 stars stating that ‘With gameplay that refuses instant gratification, Hideo Kojima’s unashamedly political game is this year’s most interesting blockbuster by far.’
Besides, Death Stranding would be available globally on November 8 for PlayStation 4.

However, Kojima himself stated that the game would launch on PC next summer, courtesy of a deal made with publisher 505 games.
