Androids, who look exactly like human beings, have replaced humans in most tasks: they are workers, babysitters, gardeners, nurses, teachers, clerks. The story of Detroit starts with an unexplained incident that begins to affect the Androids. Some disappear without any explanation, others have unexpected behaviors and strangely show signs of emotions. The rumors of “deviant” androids start spreading, but no one seems to know what’s really happening... [Quantic Dream] Expand

    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.

    Detroit: Become Human is by far the most branching game ever made. Every decision that you make has its consequences, even when you just open a window. More emotional than the other games created by Quantic Dream, stunning from a technical point of view, it will mark the history of narrative games.

    What makes Detroit: Become Human a great game, though, is that even after going back through alternate narrative branches and winding down my play time, I’m still invested. The world that Quantic Dream gave me to explore is only a short leap from the one we’re living in now, and the ideas presented have left me contemplating the role AI could play in our lives sooner rather than later.

    With amazingly realistic graphics, intense music, rich characters, and a dynamic decision scheme, this action adventure title is enthralling from its opening scene to the very end, and if you let it, it will take you on a journey to what feels like an entirely different world.

    If you want to experience an incredibly atmospheric dystopia from three gripping, strongly influenced angles, then this is the place to be.

    Held together by beautifully chromed nuts and bolts, closer inspection reveals questionable lines of code - Detroit fails to be more than the sum of its parts. [July 2018, p.83]

    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.

It's really immersive and the story just blew me away. The graphics are amazing, the mo-cap actors did an absolutely amazing job! Big shout-out to Bryan Dechart (who is keeping this community alive and helps it grow!), Jesse Williams, Valorie Curry, Clancy Brown, Matt Vladimery, Neil Newbon and all the other amazing actors! And of course David Cage! You can truly shape the story by the decisions you make and it is amazing how many different endings there are! I'm not tired of playing it yet! 10/10 Expand

    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

    This game is absolutely amazing. Beautiful graphics, great story and OMG the decisions you have to make will stress you the **** out. KnowingThis game is absolutely amazing. Beautiful graphics, great story and OMG the decisions you have to make will stress you the **** out. Knowing your decisions will get people killed and the stress of not getting the positive ending you want will make making decisions hard but very rewarding. Some people say this is not a video game its an interactive movie. I dont know what it is but all I can say is that it was a unforgettable adventure. Expand
