Trusted Reviews 100

Death Stranding is unlike anything else out there right now. It’s huge, innovative and utterly unashamed in what it wants to be. Kojima Productions is heavy-handed in its implementation of modern political themes, but they tie into the narrative and involve the player in ways that feel compelling.

PC Invasion 85

Death Stranding is an excellent game with a lot of content and a ton of unique angles. The story is straight-up dumb a lot of the time and things can get tedious and clunky, but the thrill of exploration and making your own way overcomes all obstacles. Just like. Ugh. Sam Porter Bridges.

PCGamesN 80

As thrilling as it is boring, as fantastic as it is mundane, but one thing’s for sure – there’s truly nothing else like it.

PCMag 70

Death Stranding is unlike any other AAA title on the market. It doesn’t hold your hand or provide clear-cut narrative answers—it’s downright confusing, at times. You’re either onboard for this wild ride or you’re not. Death Stranding is the definition of a divisive title, one with a plodding story and cumbersome menu system, but if you’re looking for something that challenges your perception of blockbuster games, it’s certainly worth a play.

Twinfinite

The PC release is the optimal way to experience the game, however, and for players that had the patience to wait, you are in for a treat. Similarly, returning PS4 players looking to double-dip will be able to appreciate the level of technical wizardry Kojima Productions have performed with their PC release.
