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 a social revolution simulator, where most of your choices actually matter, the story and characters are engaging and moving and the amount of narrative content is incredibly massive.

    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.

    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.

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

    The game is a technological marvel but although David Cage’s storytelling has an ideal pace and the way the story branches out depending on your choices is praiseworthy, his writing is childishly naïve. His vision of Detroit is unconvincing from the ground up and all his characters are merely crude, threadbare archetypes, which made it impossible for me to suspend disbelief. What’s more, the game touches a sensitive problem of discrimination but doesn’t have the courage to take any stand, leaving us with a lukewarm tale about robots, told with clichés and truisms.

    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 game and graphics are beyond sublime. Bio-ware can go learn a thing or two from Quantic dream on character rendering and animation. The story to me was phenomenal and i frankly will replay this game two or three times on consecutive weekends to see its depth and the resultant of my choices,moral quandary and dilemmas posed in choice.
    If you want a non button mashing well paced, intellectual stimulating game that questions the nature of humanity like a movie., BUY THIS GAME . This was money well spent.

    first of all, the graphics in this game is really top-notch and the music is amazing as well!
    secondly the acting is top-notch and the details to their facial expressions are second to none.
    i do admit that the story can be a little be cringey and old-school but it does drives you to want to find out more so i guess that is a good thing.
    will definitely play for my 2nd walkthrough soon!

    do not believe the naysayers who say this isn't a game. they know what they are getting and it is meant to be an interactive movie with some gameplay elements so anyone can play the game and enjoy it. these naysayers should just stick to their GoW and dont play this type of game if it is not interesting to them (just like i dont play console racing games cause i dont like them but i do not purposefully go and give a racing game a bad score just because i do not like them)

Amazing graphics, great storyline, and entertaining gameplay. The game also has a pretty decent amount of action in it too. Highly enjoyable. If you like these types of interactive movie/build your own story games, then you'll love it. I'd say it's much better than the best of Telltale (which is quite good). I'm not sure who is giving it '0' scores, but giving this game anything less than an 8 seems crazy to me. Expand
