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]

    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.

    An amazing game with an enthralling story that keeps you interested the entire time whilst showing the issues of slavery and civil rights!

    Clearly the critics are wrong about this. When a rating is this different you can tell the critics don't know what they are talking about.Clearly the critics are wrong about this. When a rating is this different you can tell the critics don't know what they are talking about. Sure there are some rough edges, but we should praise a game for not having cancer DLC or micro-transactions. Not every game has to be a shooter full of action packed from start to finish death and explosions.

The game is great, the story is amazing and it's exciting to see our main characters develop from our own decisions. All the characters are amazing. For example, I didn't like one of the characters at all (Don't want to say the name), but his personality and ambitions grew on me.
    Only one thing hold me back from giving this game a 10 is stupidness in some quick-time games, for example you need to press 3 buttons to do a simple task like wash a dish, but only one button for, let's say, climb on a high wall.

    it is hard to look at the background of this game, it is very blur, really very blur. I gave up this movies of Sony.
