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

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I really love this game. Impressive graphics. It is incredibly interesting to observe the development of the plot, make your own choices and watch where they lead you. Characters are amazing.I mean, everyone of them. Connor and Hank and their father-son dynamic is everything to me tho. This game gave me a lot of emotions, I have not experienced this for a long time.
    p.s. english is not my first language so sorry for mistakes,I hope I expressed my thoughts and emotions clearly.

I thought it would just be another slightly gimmicky but fun David Cage game, but NO, Detroit: Become Human is absolutely amazing and another PS4 must-have.
    This is one of the best interactive adventure games I've ever played. People always say that these types of games aren't for everyone, but I actually believe this is one of the more likely games to be enjoyed by the biggest number of people. Don't let it get under your radar and do support excellent and innovative single-player games!

    Detroit: Become Human is the best experience that Quantic Dream has given us.
    Possibly it is in a work of cult that modifies the history of the modern game, and maybe, just maybe, our own future.

    And, again, a story by David Cage.
    A story that begins to be quite slow, but that occurs at the peak of the activity of the player and when we are presented with a story to think, reflect, cry, smile... And enjoy.

    The questions and conversations work perfectly, in the change, the moments of exploration, due to their cinematic nature, they have problems with the camera. It will not take you out of the game or anything like that, but it's annoying.
    Decisions here do matter.
