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

    I would rate a game with a story such as connor and hank's a 10 any day. I hope this game will revolutionize the choice based game genre.

    Until I played the game, The graphics are the first thing you'll notice when playing this game which is absolutely realistic almost like your watching a movie.

    The stories of Connor, Kara and Markus are so fascinating and the different choices you can make are kinda scary sometimes because I legitimately felt determined to keep them alive almost like they were in fact real people despite them being game characters and Androids as well, yet the game got me invested and hooked on trying to get the best play through I could, while i haven't finished Im up to the final mission and have decided to write this review, this is an absolute must-buy for any gamer out there to experience and this game is right up there with (2018's) God of war or shadow of the Colossus, thank you for reading

    Just beat the game and i loved every second of it. The ending was intense and satisfying and had my heart racing. Incredible experience. ThisJust beat the game and i loved every second of it. The ending was intense and satisfying and had my heart racing. Incredible experience. This game surprised me. This is by far cage's best and most consistent game yet. It's a technical masterpiece on PS4 with movie quality sound, lighting and camera work, which is backed up by some top quality action and a wonderfully evocative score. Detroit really worked for me; I was gripped by the story and connected with the characters, but I think some players may have a hard time relating to Kara, Markus, and Connor.Maybe it's because there are so many different branches and outcomes to the story that they actually delivered on This is Quantic Dream’s best game so far.

    Time to Platinum the game, did mess up few so got to get it right
