    With stunning visuals, a mature story and multiple endings Detroit: Become Human is Quantic Dream’s best game. The PC port, despite some minor frame rate issues, is a great way to experience the game if you haven’t already played the PlayStation 4 version.

    With beautiful graphics and a complex branching story line, be prepared to make tough choices as you live the life of three androids as they shape the events of the days prior to the android uprising.

    Detroit: Become Human is a game worth playing, whatever is your gaming genre preference. You may not find all the answers to the questions it raises, or you may raise, but all in all it is an unforgettable experience. You may even want to relive it many times. From another point of view.

    Detroit Become Human is finally released on PC and it was worth the wait. The story is good enough, the consequences of your choices really affect the narrative and the audio-visual design is really spot on. That being said, running it on PC with hardware even above the recommended specs can sometimes be a little sloppy, with occasional frame drops and stuttering.

    Occasionally fun but often unconscientious, Detroit: Beyond Human takes steps in the right direction but retains too much of the old Quantic Dream formula.

    The best game i've ever played, other games isn;t so cool as Detroit. Final part of Detroit isvery interesting and nervous. But some peoplesThe best game i've ever played, other games isn;t so cool as Detroit. Final part of Detroit isvery interesting and nervous. But some peoples can hate this game, becuase this game has very big plot branching and some your persons can die in the first part of game or you can choose not good decesions and you will lose a lot of moments. The main disadventages of this game is big plot branching Expand

    This is a great game. I have an i7-8700k and a 1070Ti and never drop below 60fps @ 1440p on Ultra. All of these reviewers complaining aboutThis is a great game. I have an i7-8700k and a 1070Ti and never drop below 60fps @ 1440p on Ultra. All of these reviewers complaining about what store it was released on, or performance issues are either trolls or complete morons. Research a game before you buy it. Everyone and their mother knew it was an Epic exclusive, just like Heavy Rain.

    If you are having performance issues with high end systems it's because you're computer illiterate. The game uses the Vulkan API which comes with NVIDIA drivers. UPDATE THEM. Either that or stop trying to play the game on your system from 2007.

    Incredible story, well told. I found myself constantly entangled with the feeling of the characters and I genuinely cared about theirIncredible story, well told. I found myself constantly entangled with the feeling of the characters and I genuinely cared about their arc...which is perfect as you are the one in control. The game path system and the way the characters interweave and converge is extremely well thought out and considered. The idea for this game and the story that it tells is nothing short of a masterpiece. There are endless routes and paths spanning numerous endings, content and parts of the story. Each having an impact on the overall outcome in one way or another. My only (and I mean that) complaint is the camera system. Whilst the cinematic camera does give a really nice film type view point...it does make gameplay difficult at times. A free 360 camera would have made things feel more natural and less "Hollywood". Detroit is also an incredibly arty game. With beautiful graphics, well considered environments and technically is extremely well optimized. Running on ultra in 4K, unlike many other AAA games, gave me consistently high frame rates. The game was smooth as silk. Overall, one of the best games I've played in a long long time, if not ever and is up there with Unchartered 4, and Last of Us in my top 3. If there is a series or film of this ever made, I'll be first in the queue. Especially if the original actors return. Expand

    Detroit: Become Human is like an interactive hollywood blockbuster movie - you know it's not perfect, you can see its flaws and you can thinkDetroit: Become Human is like an interactive hollywood blockbuster movie - you know it's not perfect, you can see its flaws and you can think that its somehow stupid, but it still is a captivating piece of story-telling that must be experienced first-hand.

    The plot and main characters are archetypical both in good way and bad way and the topic of human-like AI is interesting (even if no such thing will ever happen, most likely). There are some memorable moments, just as some completely unnecessary or lame moments.

    I played it on the lowest settings possible and the visuals were still stunning.

    Detroit: Become Human doesn't bring anything that we couldn't already see in other games or films, but as far as interactive story-telling movie-like games are concerned, Detroit sits at the top of the genre.
