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.

    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

    The story may be generic as a Si-Fi, but the experience is really good.
    All choices do have real impact, more or less, there are more than one ending.
    But there is something I don't like, it's that many story branch depends on your failure, and I guess most player won't really aim at that.

It is hands down my favourite single player game ever played. The story, the characters, the gameplay, they all drag you in and before you know it you're hooked on every single one of the characters story lines. The game will run through all of your emotions with it's story line, it will make you question your every decision, even if you think that decision isn't important, you better believe later on in the game it will be. An absolute masterpiece. I cannot recommend this game enough. Expand

    The choices and decision trees of Detroit are the most robust of any game in the genre.

    Some chapters have as many as 3 decision tree tracks, which are only accessible based on decisions made in previous chapters. Some chapters are even missable based on your decisions.

    Choices you make change the world — stealing a weapon opens more paths to use that weapon down the road, murder someone and it will appear on tvs and magazines, save someone and that character may become a worthy ally later on.

    I’m on my second playthrough and choosing completely different decisions and I’m experiencing a very different narrative.

    As far as graphics, they are up there with the new God of War, possibly better depending on your aesthetics. The soundtrack is also amazing, with different composers for each main character—helping with their unique feel and story.

    I fell in love with the characters. The cast are all amazing actors and it was the one of the few times I cared about characters in a video game.

    In conclusion, I imagine I will play the complete game at least 4 times before I see mostly everything/get bored.

    Don’t miss out on this title!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Один немногих эксклюзивов, ради которого действительно необходимо брать PS4. Огромное разветвление сюжетный линий, которые поражают своей вариативностью. Что же по сюжету, он отличен, да нам преподносят немного не ту проблему, которую многим хотелось бы видеть, но это все равно не делает игру на столько хуже, на сколько ее многие засрали. Даже уже в конце пройденной игры нам предоставляют возможность пройти опрос : сколько раз или вообще возникли ли у нас сопереживания героям, и скажу, безусловно : да! Однако ни в коем случае не андроидам, а людям. Было печально за Хэнка, старика Карла, Алису (пока не раскрылось то, что она анжроид), роботы же в этой игре, меня совсем не тронули. На протяжении всей игры мне принципиально не нравился Маркус, и совершенно противоположное мнение о Конноре, т.к. именно он и должен был погасить всю эту андроидскую заваруху.
    Что по геймплею, тут все неоднозначно, сам жанр игры не предоставляет каких-либо больших возможностей, кроме как достаточно нервных QTE.
    Саундтрэк. Ох, как же разбегались мои мурашки по телу, когда увидели впервые интро Детроида, когда Кэра разглядывает рахруху и одновременно процветающую цивилизацию через окно машины под идеально подобранную музыку. Это касается не только интро, а и всех событий вообще - музыка подобрана наилучшим образом 10/10
    Графика тут меня совсем не впечатлила, приемлемо, хорошо подобран свет, нет никаких вырвиглаз текстур, все в порадке. Однако, однако, в первой миссии за Маркуса, гуляя по городу, наблюдается не малый просев фпс, и наблюдался он не единожды.
    Подводя итоги, могу заявить, что ни пожалел о деньгах, а главное о времени, потративших на Детроит. Моя конечная оценка 9, т.к. выше описанная проблема андроидов была поднята, как я считаю, не так как хотелось бы.

    If you liked any of the old games from Quantic Dream and David Cage:
    Omikron: The Nomad Soul (1999)
    Fahrenheit (2005) Heavy Rain (2010)

    You will absolutely love Detroit: Become Human, it has a rich and meaningful storytelling at its climax... I am still playing but I had to come here and talk about it.

    We have 3 parallel stories that are slowly but surely crossing paths and made richer by it while creating the world where each of the main characters exist.
