Detroit: Become Human review
Exceptional
by ayna2004

I love this game so much couldn't stop playing i would play for 3 hours in a row non stop, the story line sucked you in. In this game you could decide the fate of the charecters, the graphics were exeptional it was breath taking and in some points it left me shaking it really felt like you were in the game and its really cool because the story depends on your choices, and you could kill the charecters off before their stories were complited. In the game you are able to decide their if you want your charecters to be hostile or sweet. But there is one downside that with Connor and Kara you had more decisions to make but as with Markus it felt like you weren't the one deciding for him it was more like the game was already decided for you. one tip: with this game there are a lot of ways it can end up but dont worry because you can replay the chapter but its more advised to keep it as it is and not go back to change it however it is your game so do what the hell you want. and one last thing, there is a flowchart that shows you how many ways it could have ended up but it doesn't show you what would have happened. And you can also see what most people have chosen.

In 2010, Heavy Rain blew me away. I'd never had such a cinematic experience when playing a video game. I played the PS4 remaster in 2017 and dear lord it did not hold up. The bar for motion capture and vocal performance has been raised so high since then by the likes of The Last of Us, Red Dead Redemption, etc, that the half-assed performances of Heavy Rain have become retroactively terrible. Detroit: Become Human shows that Quantic Dream have come a long, long way since then.
Detroit: Become Human is the most balanced Quantic Dream game so far. It does not have major plot holes like Heavy Rain, and, unlike Beyond: Two Souls, the plot and characters are fairly interesting. However, this whole artificial intelligence theme is getting a bit too old, and David Cage is not bringing anything new to the genre. We have the usual trite sci-fi themes and reflections, and you can already expect the way things are going to evolve. I enjoyed Connor's "cases" and storyline the most, while the other two characters' paths and roles felt a bit too forced at times. I liked that the way characters feel about you changes depending on your actions, and that the game explicitly lets you know the way your relationships are evolving. The flowchart at the end of each chapter was interesting too, as it shows you the number of variations the same chapter could have. However, it might influence the way you play as you will be walking around looking for any possible element that could open up different paths instead of reacting to the events as they naturally happen around you. (6.7/10)

this game is an art piece and a truly emotional experience. I felt for every character and had to weight every decision to make sure that they would end up being fine.

Detroit is a game I have wanted to play since it's release. I absolutely love Quantic Dream and their previous outputs, especially 2010s Heavy Rain. When it was announced it was becoming free with ps+ I was very excited to finally get to play this. All of my expectations were matched and exceeded by a long stretch.

First of all the game looks gorgeous. The detail in the character models, facial expressions and environments are above and beyond almost all games I've seen this gen. People will argue they're only this good because of the lack of real action, which whilst probably true, you have to appreciate the work done on their engine to build this. 

The gameplay is classic QD, very limited amounts of gameplay with an emphasis on exploration, decision making and QTEs. Some of the scenes with action where you have to perform QTEs can be insanely intense as you know at any minute any character can die for good. Detroit absolutely nails the decision trees and the knock on effects of your actions. Even early on some of the things you do can affect extremely late game outcomes. This makes the game feel very in depth and also adds a great replay value. The narrative itself is amazing and the world built around androids and discrimination is detailed and very thoughtful.

Overall, this is easily in my top 3 PS exclusives and one of my favourite games this generation. The story is powerful, the game looks great and the amount of different paths offers something that many games fail to deliver. 100% worth playing at least once.

This game's story got me at the first moment. I think it's kind of modern for some topics and it's a very good thing. The cast is very well made and all the possibilities take the game to a next level of quality. The way you enter the minds of the characters make this game one of my favorites.

8/10

+ Incredible range of story based on player choices (flowsheet sells this)
+ Each character/story has its own feel; no weak link; incredible performances
+ Oftentimes approaches photorealism

- Needs more gameplay, QTE isn't enough
- Some awkward animations pop up occasionally
- Trite overall story, feels done before
- Didn't feel compelled to jump back in
My number 2 in best PS4 games played in 2018 behind GOW. Great acting and graphics with a thrilling storyline you won't want to put down. All of the decisions you make are subtle but have a major impact on gameplay and storyline. Quite replayable too with multiple endings!

It's a tired story that doesn't really do anything groundbreaking, but I thought some of the characters were great. Easily the best decision based game I've played, I felt so much responsibility for those involved in the story. Glad that my decisions mattered in the short and long term, plus I never completely knew what the repercussions would be. Can't wait to get back into it, try and get the platinum.
