It is the year 2020, of all the issues the world and America have to deal with, it is incredibly disappointing that racism and police brutality is still one of them. The time for both to disappear is long overdue. The time to stick your head in the sand and pretend they don’t exist has also long passed.
Death Stranding is an interesting game. It is a big name triple A title that scoffs at mainstream appeal. The game-play will absolutely not connect with everyone. That doesn’t make it bad by any means, but it is incredibly rare to see that done in one of the biggest releases of a generation. For the sake of this review, I need to spoil some game-play aspects, but I keep story spoilers to a minimum.
