“Cage’s methodology of impinged interactivity is a beacon of fictional possibilities. They can expand on traditional AAA videogame narratives, often hooked into necessitated gunplay for hours as story bonds lose their attachment in background surfaces. Beyond falls into the anti-methodology, overwhelmed by the possibility of dripping tears and the videogame technology used to simulate them. Jodie is squandered as little more than a flare of emotion. Her angst is saturated to extremes, and set-ups are in place solely to generate close-ups of crying. Beyond has the length of a novel to tell Jodie’s life into her late 20s, free from the burden of necessitated action, but seems clueless as to how best fill space with anything more than sobbing.”
