Death Stranding Is Similar To Truck Simulator – A Giant Bomb Review

Early on, this is a pain in the A**

My PS says 13hrs left to unlock Death Stranding, and after years of hype finally we can enter into Kojima’s new dark world of Life and Death. Reviews coming out from Media brings a mix reaction, however it is clear the game demands a lot of work. But it will be a little hard to believe Death Stranding as an new IP will be daunting in terms of story and gameplay.

Death Stranding trailers and gameplay previews already proved the game will be amazing, but it seems there is an very high expectation from Kojima, his new world of disconnected world embarks a dark journey of survival between life and death. Super-natural phenomena, wild landscape, high-tech dead tracking gadgets, and of course a cute little baby with hyper senses is something we might have not seen much.


Kojima’s first post-Konami project is a bizarre, self-indulgent mess that never quite manages to tie its myriad pieces together.

With the opening of Giant Bomb Review by Alex Navarro it’s clear the reviewer did not enjoy the game much comparing it with Truck Simulator, Death Stranding is falling on expectations of media.

Rhythmically, this game has more in common with something like the Truck Simulator games than your standard third-person action game. Giant Bomb Review.


Death Stranding Review Coverage

Metacritic rewarded 83 score to Death Stranding based on various Critics Review where we pulled out few. Most of them have a different perspective towards the gameplay.

Game Revolution: If there’s one game you should play this year, it’s Death Stranding. It’s a system seller, and I love it.


Push Square: Following years of mysterious anticipation, Death Stranding delivers on all fronts. An accomplished, fascinating set of gameplay mechanics allow you to make deliveries the way you want to, while social features let the game live on once you’ve put the controller down. It may become slightly tiresome as you hit the halfway mark, but the phenomenal narrative is on hand to pick things back up again and its outstanding visuals are the cherry on top. Death Stranding doesn’t raise the bar for any particular genre, it creates an entirely new one.

Screen Rant: Death Stranding is dizzying, unshakable in its belief it is doing something worthwhile, and it’s one of the most important games of this decade.

IGN Italia: Death Stranding is a one of a kind experience that will stick with you for years to come.


PlayStation LifeStyle: Death Stranding is not a “fun” game, but it’s an important and meaningful experience that earns its payoff through every bit of frustration and slog. Its a look at life and death, connection and solitude; a game about building up what matters most and supporting each other selflessly. You’ll be bored at times and downright frustrated at others, but it comes with a great reward at the end that is made sweeter by the trials that precede it. It’s brilliantly unique in its design and implementation of online elements.

As far as we are concerned as a Gaming Media, Death Stranding requires time. It has happened with Anthem before and we all know how it fell down in terms of expectations. Practically bugs destroyed Anthem, the game as perfect in its forte, but the fragmentary product launch caused the failure. However this time it’s Kojima, Death Stranding will be compelling and extensive what we see through the videos. We will soon publish our reviews and insights from different gamers next week.
