    Quantic Dream surpasses everything it has done before with Detroit: Become Human. A huge script allows for a thrilling story to have multiple layers that, at the same time, deal with topics such as slavery, the human condition or the concept of identity. A real masterpiece of the genre.

    Though it comes off as heavy-handed at times, Detroit tells an endearing story that verges on the profound, diving deep into the nature of humanity itself. It proves that interactivity and focused storytelling aren’t mutually exclusive and that the two can enhance each other given a proper degree of talent behind the scenes.

    Detroit Become Human is a game so ambitious that it can be considered brave to put the player in deeply emotional situations. It's not forgiving, and the choices are so many that you won't be free from sacrifice and pain. In a modern scene full of multiplayer stuff, going back to narrative is something we can appreciate.

    Detroit: Become Human is a testament to how far the genre of interactive narrative storytelling has come and, at the same time, how much further it can go. While it might still suffer from some annoying QTE moments and a few narrative speedbumps, it delivers on promises that many other games in this genre make yet fail to keep, especially in how the choices you make can lead to very different experiences down the line.

    Detroit: Become Human is a bit too ambitious for its own good. It is not a game-breaking problem, but it does make moments that were set up to be huge a bit disappointing. If you take it slow and give your brain enough time to think it all through, there is definitely a lot to take away from Detroit: Become Human.

    Learning the story of Kara, Connor and Markus in Detroit: Become Human was a pleasant and engaging affair. I really grew fond of the heroes and I pondered over every decision. Quantic Dream's new game is a really good interactive movie, and the degree of non-linearity is amazing. It's a pity that the story itself is totally bland, obvious and downright disappointing; the characters are flat and cliché, and the game doesn't deliver any meaningful message - it's almost baffling how the authors could have missed such an opportunity to make a statement.

    Detroit: Become Human wants to move you. It wants to elicit an emotional response through its story. The thing is, it really doesn't. The flowchart is a nice inclusion and adds some variance, but when the narrative is as cringey and ham-fisted as it is you won't want to play through it multiple times.

    Ignore the hate-reviews with a personal agenda against David Cage, there is no way in h*ll that this game is a 4/10. Not even Mighty Number 9Ignore the hate-reviews with a personal agenda against David Cage, there is no way in h*ll that this game is a 4/10. Not even Mighty Number 9 is a 4/10 lol. The story and writing in Detroit is good enough for a game (I loved it personally) and probably better than the story in 95% of all other games ever released, there are loads breathtaking situations and choices, probably the best graphics ever made (imagine the work that went into this), amazing music... This game would have a 85-88/100 MC score if it was reviewed fairly for what it is. Give it a chance and enjoy it with your family and friends, you will have a blast! Trust me. Expand

    I just finished this game for the first time, and I absolutely LOVED it!! I was fully engaged right from the opening scenes and as I gotI just finished this game for the first time, and I absolutely LOVED it!! I was fully engaged right from the opening scenes and as I got closer to the end I was completely gripped and very moved by the characters and story. The characters are well developed and I cared about all of the main ones, the Conner/Anderson story was particularly good. The graphics are out of this world - one of the best I've played on this front - and the music is superb and adds a lot to the experience. It is very much a narrative game but there was enough interaction and choices for me to make it feel like I was playing a major role rather than mostly just watching a story unfold. There are many reviews attacking the story, saying that it was a rip off of a movie, but really the themes are pretty universal and for me what came to mind was the fight against slavery, or the Holocaust. The story was satisfying enough and clearly had enough different branches and outcomes that I will definitely be playing it again. The only reason it didn't have a 10 from me is because I found myself fighting with the game mechanics in some sections. There's a particular mechanic where the character does a mental dry run of different possible actions in a situation that needs to be negotiated that I found quite frustrating and ended up resorting to watching a YouTube walkthrough to see how to get through that part, which I hate doing. That happened a couple of times. To be fair, I'm not the best gamer, but still it impacted my immersion in the story, and it happened again very near the end of the game when I'd got a much better handle on the mechanics. Also - a bit like Fallout 4 - it can sometimes be tricky to make a major choice based on four one word response options. Several times what the character actually said was not what I was expecting from the choice I made and it could have major repercussions - and not of the good kind. These are relatively minor points though, and overall I really enjoyed every moment of this game and would definitely recommend it. If you have liked any other games of this type you will definitely enjoy this one. Out of David Cage's previous offerings this is way ahead in terms of story, character development and execution and it stands up well against the likes of The Walking Dead and Until Dawn. This bodes well for more games in this genre from David Cage & the QD team. Expand
