Detroit: Become Human review
by brady

Incredibly dumb, but I love it.

Probably the biggest downfall of the game is that it answers the central question for you. You have to buy in to the idea that androids should be defined as intelligent life and be afforded the same rights as humans in order to reasonably play as 2 of the 3 characters. Pretty stupid idea in my opinion. It really only works as a metaphor for racism, but David Cage isn't smart enough to connect it in any coherent way.

I'm just a sucker for the format, really. I like the choose your own adventure structure. I like that it allows the player to craft the most compelling narrative out of the clay provided. I just wish there was better clay.

I think it would be better if they focused on shorter (cheaper) games so they're less reliant on some dumbass Frenchman creating a long intertwining story that isn't a lot of nonsense.

Very funny that the president in the game is a woman that looks like Hillary Clinton, is named Warren, has a bizarre European accent, and completely inscrutable politics. This is prime Cage here. Throwing a bunch of random touches together with no comprehensible greater meaning. It all ends up being jarringly less than the sum of its parts.

Dogshit. Loved every second.

As far as gameplay, this is absolutely perfect.  The story is a little convoluted.  Following 3 characters is fine, but when you have to setup 3 characters separate from each other, it makes for a long stretch of setup.  Almost abandoned after cleaning up for people for a few hours...
great voice acting. very relevant
Easily one of the best story focused games. There are a couple of bad direction choices, but the overall story is interesting and doesn't fall apart in the end.

If you have played other Quantic Dream games, you know what to expect. Quick time events and dialogue choices that have an impact on the story. There is enough variation in the gameplay and events to keep it from being too dialogue or action oriented.
exceptional. incredible. the fbi agent has a potential big cock
Good story, one of the best game-movie.
exceptional for sure

Detroit: Become Human is all about story, and is a terrific visual novel.  The characterization of the three main characters is clever, and the visuals are strong.  Connor was the highlight.  Actual gameplay?  It was more like a series of quick time events when not choosing dialogue options.

It is worth multiple play throughs.
