First, right off the bat let us tell you that BTS is more of a gaming experiment than an actual game, although for an experiment it is still pretty, pretty good.
If you have played games like Heavy Rain or Murdered: Soul Suspect, then this game is kind of the same along their lines of game progression.
Jodie is a psychic person who can somewhat control a mysterious entity called Aiden who has been with her since childhood, Aiden shares psychic connection with Jodie and they battle for the upper hand at these controls.
Which Jodie eventually masters, anyways later she makes a mistakes with her powers and gets in trouble so much that she is given to a pair of National Doctors that specialize in Paranormal Activity related stuffs, Nathan and Cole Freeman.
Anyway they are trying to devise a portal of some kind for some reason and then there is the goddamn government trying its best to recruit Jodie with her Special Forces unit when they learn about her psychic abilities.
So eventually stuff gets messed up and a new plot gets revealed behind the whole mess of the portal and the mystery of Aiden and his attachment with Jodie gets revealed.
Also, Jodie is motion captured by Actress, Ellen Page (Juno in Juno) and Nathan Freeman is done by William Dafoe (Green Goblin in Sam Raimi’s Spiderman). And the game is designed in such a way so that the non-gamers can enjoy it too.
That is why the experiment thing we mentioned above.
The gameplay is basically based on interactive dramatic elements in an action adventure genre game.
You get to use psychological powers of Jodie to find more about the situations or clues, you can send Aiden to look around the area for clues but only in close proximity. It is basically use your psychic powers to know more than anybody could ever dream of knowing.
Then there are action sequences where the player must decide quickly and guide his controllers in the direction the player thinks will be able to help Jodie the most to either attack or defend. Of course it happens in Bullet Time!
The game theme music is great, the story is nice, the gameplay are interesting enough to make it through and overall a nice, real nice gaming experience.
Developed by French developers, Quantic Dream and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for PS3 and PS4, it was initially released in October 2013.
If paranormal way of complex puzzle solving and mysterious aura related game environment are your thing, you know the psychological world and stuffs then it does provide that naturally.
But even if you are no fan of this type of subject then still it’s a very decent game.
Go and try it at least once.
