    I played Heavy Rain shortly before playing this, and while it's very much the same style of game, I believe that it is way, way better than Heavy Rain was. This game is not so much a video game as it is a long, interactive, choose-your-own-adventure movie. I'm probably going to make several comparisons with Heavy Rain here, since that's the only other game I've played that really compares in style. Except, it is a bit like visual novels. A bit. Visual novels are typically static images, so the way the game looks is very different from a visual novel, but the idea of it being essentially a way of consuming a story rather than a game you play is similar. There are branching paths, which visual novels usually also have, although I think the branching path aspect of this game is far more detailed and complex than you get with most visual novels. Where the game is different from VNs in negative ways is that it doesn't allow you to make different save files at different points so you can easily backtrack to see the different paths, nor does it allow you to easily skip past parts you've already seen. In order to see the different paths, you have to replay the entire game over again in full (which takes around 10 hours), or at least replay from a certain chapter once you unlock that chapter, and any new game writes over any previous saved games. This is, in my opinion, a huge detriment to a branching-path story, since there's really no easy way to skip around and see all the paths. I do think there's replay value, but it's not the kind of game you can sit down and see everything at once because you'd get sick of the repeated stuff before you got through all the different stuff. Back to the Heavy Rain comparisons. The story is much, much better. Of course, I'm very fond of androids and I like sci-fi much better than detective/serial killer stories, so I was predisposed to like this much better. But I do think the story is better overall. Not perfect, of course. There are a lot of worldbuilding things that it's better to not examine too closely, and some of the plot "twists" are kinda there for no real reason. But there's no "WTF?" twist like there was in Heavy Rain. The controls are better in that you use the left stick to move around and the right one to look, but it's still pretty clunky and limited compared to more traditional games. The graphics are way, way better (as you'd expect). Whereas Heavy Rain had one doofy-looking guy, one kinda cute-in-a-dorky-way guy, and one flat out ugly guy, Detroit has two guys who are genuinely attractive, which made for a much more pleasant viewing experience. (The lady character is also very pretty. And the side characters were a wide variety of appearances, some also quite attractive, and few of them outright ugly.) The scenery and sci-fi stuff is also very pretty. So, visually, it's quite a treat. As far as the QTEs, the easy mode is actually pretty easy (as opposed to Heavy Rain's easy mode), so I didn't really have any problem succeeding in nearly all of the QTEs, which was very welcome. I did enjoy the story. I went the pacifist route and tried to let as few characters die as possible. I didn't always succeed, so that's probably something I'd try to improve on the next playthrough, but I did enough to get the "good" ending. There were some touching character moments, including some surprising ones I wasn't expecting. The characters are all pretty likable and sympathetic, and the relationships that develop between them are often heartwarming. (But again, I do have a huge soft spot for androids.) I felt like the endings were a bit truncated. I sat through the credits, thinking maybe the ending cutscenes would come after them, but then it went back to the main screen and I realized that was it. So, even when you get the good ending, the endings are actually really short, even compared to Heavy Rain, which I think did a more thorough job of giving everyone a little ending scene. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this game if you like games that are all about the story and not about gameplay, and especially if you're fond of androids. I'm definitely planning on coming back to this one periodically to play through once in a while.

    Somewhat Flawed Gem of a Game

    I've played through Detroit: Become Human several times now and gotten a platinum trophy in it, Overall, the game falls in the category of love it or hate it to me The characters are fairly well written and the actors are very good (the actors for all three playable androids, Hank and Carl are huge standouts. Hank being played by Clancy Brown and Carl by Lance Henrikson definitely help here) What lets the game down is that it has a hamfisted and somewhat anvilicious approach to subject matter and makes flawed analogies, while i loved the stories of the three playable characters and their journeys, and found myself empathizing and caring for them and several of the cast around them, the overall theme the game tries to tackle is racism in America and it just doesn't really work and at times its overly anvilicious. Better writers and reviewers with better qualifications to do so have delved into the multiple reasons why, but suffice to say theres just a fairly big difference between the struggles faced by minorities in our country today and androids in a hypothetical future. The anvilicious usage of things like Androids being forced to ride in the back of the bus is probably one of the worst offenders of it. Made even worse when most androids are NOT sentient beings and ARE just complex machines following orders with no free will, emotions or desires of their own, making them little better than an advanced Siri on legs... But besides that, I still enjoyed the characters themselves and the focus on their own unique struggles, Gameplay wise this isnt really much of a game, Its a series of quick time events like prior David Cage games, The downside is that sometimes they do not register correctly, do not make logical sense (making them difficult to predict) and some of the combinations you need to press requiring contortions and two hands to achieve to do something minor. The addition of motion controls to it which don't seem to work very well on the PS4 just adds to the frustration with them. I enjoyed the multiple choices plus some of the really fun ways you can mess about with the game. The game did make me feel genuinely sad, happy and scared at multiple points and it really is best to just do a blind playthrough and accept your choices before going and messing around. Also multiple playthroughs and taking multiple paths is the only way to really understand large aspects of what exactly is going on. If you're a fan of say...Blade Runner or Westworld, you'll probably like it, as will casual gamers looking for a good story and something to show off their new HDR TV (THe game looks fantastic in HDR and high resolution on the PS4 Pro BTW) But if you're looking for a more involved game, or something that is tackling serious social issues more competently its probably best to look elsewhere.

    Continued excellence from Quantic Dream

    Quantic Dream is one of the absolute jewels in Sony's crown of exclusive developers. And, while what they create may be difficult to define strictly as "games," what they do create is something that includes the most basic of game mechanics, along with filmmaking, storytelling, and world building to create art. Introspective, thought-provoking journeys that no other studio has proven to be capable of producing at the same consistency as QD. On the technical side, QD features some amazing graphics, with top-tier 3D CGI on par with any movie production to bring Hollywood actors into their games. Where Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe anchored their prior game, they've brought in two of the greatest character actors since the 80s in Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Near Dark,) and Clancy Brown (The Kurgan from the original Highlander!) To bring Detroit to life. Which is, I suppose, appropriate, because the theme of Detroit falls squarely into the realm of Blade Runner in asking the questions about artificial intelligence/ androids being actual life. This question will be asked in various ways as you play through three different stories, told concurrently, as the androids: a cop assigned to a human partner, an assistant to an artist paralyzed from the waist down, and a homemaker/ nanny to a young girl and her broken and abusive father. You will be tasked with chores and jobs both mundane and extraordinary while experiencing a story and being asked questions that remain firmly in the latter category. Detroit Become Human is far less a game and much more an experience, one you'll be glad to have taken once the credits begin.

    Not Your Normal Game!

    Detroit Become Human lets you write the story of what happens when robotic programming goes awry on a massive scale. The concept and execution come together beautifully into one of the more memorable and significant video game experiences of 2018. As you might expect for a new PS4 exclusive, the production quality and graphics of Detroit Become Human are superb. Realistic weather effects make you wish the game was set in Miami instead of a frozen Motown. The lighting is also especially well-done. Perhaps most impressive of all is the life-like facial animations which may convince you that androids are in-fact people too. Sound quality is up to snuff, but not particularly noteworthy. However, the voice acting is remarkable. Going in, you might expect the androids to sound like Dennis Klatt, but the voice actors were well-cast with excellent and context-appropriate delivery and expression. As a whole, gameplay is more than adequate. The game is well-polished and doesn't contain any noticeable bugs. Difficulty is largely irrelevant. If you make a plastic-headed mistake, just keep going and live with the consequences. That's kinda the point. The only short-circuit in this department is the control scheme. A number of interactions require use of the right thumb stick which also moves the camera, so at times you might look around foolishly instead of performing an action. Other sequences require a third thumb (or similar appendage) to properly execute. This has the potential to spoil immersion. The writing for Detroit Become Human is is anything but robotic. The dynamic story revolves around player choice and weaves together the stories of 3 disparate androids as they fight to break free from their programming to become free-willed beings. Determine the fate of android-human relations. Protest? Fight? Hop the border to freedom? The choice is yours, and that is what makes Detroit Become Human one of the most enjoyable games in recent memory.

    A rare gem...

    This is one of those rare games that I give 5 stars too. Much like the developers other titles, the line is sort of blurred between "game" and "cinematic experience". The story kept you engaged and every choice you made had a consequence...sometimes completely different than what you anticipated. Although the developer suggested you do at least one playthrough without restarting from a checkpoint, I did redo one section of the game I believe, because I just couldnt accept the outcome that I had created. But for 90% of the game I accepted my initial choices and consequences and was able to get an ending that I was happy with. For me personally, I'm good with that, and don't want to change my experience, so i'm not replaying it. But for some folks with a morbid curiosity about "what if...", the game could easily be played through several times with drastically different outcomes, even permanent deaths of any of the 3 main characters. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my time with this game, was totally absorbed in the storytelling, and was almost sad to see it come to an end. I highly recommend this game to anyone who is looking for something with some real meat in the storytelling and substance departments. It will really force you to think and asks some very controversial questions about what the definition of life really is.

    I've played the other Quantic Dream games and this is my least favorite by far. It's not terrible but it was definitely not great. You play through 3 different character perspectives, each alternating after every chapter. It didn't pull it off the way Heavy Rain did. It felt a bit too distracting and I was pretty annoyed by it not transitioning well. The one thing I will give it is that the choices do seem to matter a bit more in this game, which is what this studio has been going for for a while now. Still, the story wasn't good enough for me to be really invested in the outcome. It often felt cheesy and predictable. Kara's story was pretty boring which was the biggest let down since she was what got me hyped on the game to begin with. Marcus' revolution was lacking real depth and felt a bit too rushed. Connor's was the only one that actually delivered substance. You see him as a functioning android serving his purpose in the beginning but you see him and his partner gain perspective and eventually develop some empathy for the other androids, and the road to that felt natural and not contrived. There was so much more character development and story that was desperately needed. The game is way too short and 8 or so hours split between 3 characters leaves so much to be desired. Yeah, you can replay it again and get a different outcome but I don't feel like I actually want to. There's nothing in this game that I want to replay or see turn out differently because the game just didn't do it for me. I'm a big fan of these choice driven games but this is the first where one play through was enough for me.

    One of the three characters provides you with a moral exploration of the world in the game. This characters story is interesting but fairly inconsequential and doesn't really mesh well with the others. This story, that of Kara, is what I think was intended as the 'heart' of the game. This story is fine but could have been better integrated into the rest of the story. Another character is the soul of the games story - reflecting on the 'why' questions in the games world and allowing you to question the status quo. This story is intended to inspire you and make you feel something. But this story is a dud - it's less of an interactive story and more of a lesson the game wants to teach to you. This is Marcus's story and it would have been better with less character involvement - maybe something that is happening in the world and impacts you instead of making you take control and play as someone super preachy and annoying. And then you have Connor - who I think was intended as the 'mind' of the game. Slight problem however - Connor's story has more spirit and heart than the other two characters combined. It explores the who and why of the world, it allows for moments of reflection, and it has a platonic relationship that is one of the best I've ever seen in a video game. If I was evaluating this game based solely off of this story it would be 5/5.

    This is an amazing game, especially if you like a narrative. I loved that this game told a story and you were in charge of how that story unfolded. Will you be peaceful or combative? Sometimes, the lines are blurred between the two. Even though this game isn't a shooter, you still have to survive your choices, keep your friends alive, use lots of stealth and often non-lethal (or lethal depending on the choices your make) attacks to progress. This game has tremendous replay value, in that there are a huge quantity of choices. If you think some of the characters look and/or sound familiar, it's because they hired famous actors you probably know and the characters look like them. The skill level of the actors, coupled with the use of motion capture, where the actors actually preformed ALL the choices, while they were recording the dialog, makes the game feel more like an immersive box office movie, and you're in the shoes of the lead actor. I know it's a frequent practice in both games and animated movies to have each actor record their lines individually in a sound booth. But it's the live interaction between each of the actors/characters, with them responding to another person, and not just saying their lines, that puts this game in such a higher level than many other games, and even some movies. If this style of game play is something you enjoy, you will love this game.

    Beautiful & Gripping. Story Not Quite What I Hoped

    Detroit is like playing firsthand through a season of pretty-good sci-fi TV. If you haven't played an "interactive narrative" type game like this or Heavy Rain before, it kind of has to be played to be believed. I've never felt as much like I WAS a character as I did in Detroit, and the challenges faced by its three characters were really thrilling. Graphically it's about the nicest looking game I've ever seen. Character models and actor performances make everyone believable almost all the time---not much "uncanny valley" here. Much of the game takes place in a snowstorm which is just beyond beautiful. I think the story missed some of its potential as science fiction, though. Androids gaining sentience is a great premise, but the rules aren't clearly explained and there's no real gray area between "subservient android with no free will" and "woke android that's exactly like a human". I would have liked to see the main characters struggle more with their humanity but it's pretty much instantly taken for granted. (How can a robot "want" something? How can it "love" someone? The story blasts right past these questions.) The character Connor, who's supposed to be caught between the two sides, has one clearly "correct" path which I found disappointing. Nonetheless Detroit's vision of 2038-era America was fascinating and I still recommend giving it a shot if it looks interesting to you.

    First off let me start by saying I have played the other games from QuanticDream, so I know about their style of game play, plot feeling, and the twists and turns you will experience. With that said.... HOLY CRAP! This game just grabs you right from the start and pulls you through a roller coaster of emotion and heartbreak with no stops till the very end. There were several points were I had to stop, pause, and breath. Choices given to me felt like I was forced to pick the lesser of 2 evils, I was worried about my characters getting killed off, or how the world would react to their actions. I took a while to write this review because I wished to play more then one play through, and believe me, it is amazing. Seeing how actions change the story, is just well done, BUT, with that said, multi play throughs will also show some of the weakness of the illusion of choice. It is an on rails sort of feel, with death being the only HUGE change in the first half of the game. That doesn't take away from the game at all, but it is something to keep in mind. I recommend this game to anyone looking for an amazing story driven game where you do feel like your choices matter. Be warned, this will get your emotions boiling, and what happens, is all up to you.

    Well if you are a graphics junkie, the checkbox is well checked. You will be well satisfied with the presentation and the expressions of the characters. It really puts you in the story. Which brings me to why I am mad. I am mad, and being mad shows how well the story and characters are to me while playing this game. It completely drew me in and I care about them. No spoilers of course but I got an ending (I am a complete klutz when hitting buttons when called upon to do so), that 0% of the world got. Zero! Zilch, nada. And I'll tell ya, that ending had me sitting in my chair, shaking my head, mad and saddened. I loved the character! How could I screw up so badly to let that happen! Immediately I am on my second playthrough. I will make it right! Comes to the replay factor. Granted you are going through the story so you know what you have already done but there is a mind boggling amount of paths that you "could" have taken that make the replay value through the roof. Now, if you want hardcore relentless action, this game is not for you. This is a game driven by story, thought on themes, and characterization. That is my jam so to speak. I loved Heavy Rain. So there you go. If you are in my camp. This is a no brainer. A must addition to your collection. I am completely enamored with this title and could not give it more praise.

    Like a lot of people, I loved Heavy Rain and thought Beyond Two Souls was just decent. Detroit is a consistently enjoyable experience with an engaging story. Each of the 3 characters you play as have their own unique playstyle. As Conner you investigate crimes by analyzing evidence, reconstructing crime scenes, and occasionally giving chase. As Kara, you're having to make the best decisions to keep you and a little girl safe. As Marcus you look out for the greater good of a group of outcast androids and sometimes analyze terrain to perform advanced parkour. Their objectives are vastly different from each other so things never get stale. Graphics are top-notch. The high-action sequences and amazing score combine to make for exhilarating moments. The themes have been criticized as worn-out by this point, but that could be said for many movies as well. The way the themes are presented in the story is perfect imo. A flow chart at the end of each chapter shows just how many branching actions there are and offer a very compelling reason to replay scenes. I really enjoyed comparing my actions to the rest of the world and friends using the percentages shown on this chart. Overall would highly recommend, regardless of whether you're typically a fan of interactive storytelling games.

    I have completed the game, and very much enjoyed the story. While the story itself isn't anything mind-blowing, it does offer some very interesting moral dilemmas. It will put you into situations that might make you uncomfortable, but all the scenarios are very realistic. The storyline follows the actions of multiple characters, so is a 'type' for everyone. From discussions with friends, I've found huge variations between the characters they like, and dislike. The game's playtime is roughly 10 hours. I broke my time up, over a week, playing a few hours here and there. There are a bunch of variations/outcomes in the different chapters. Once you complete the game, you are given the option to revisit any chapter, and see how different choices change the scene. I do find myself wanting to replay almost every scene, so there is definitely more than the original playtime, took warrant owning the game (vs renting). My only criticism is that the controls were a bit annoying at times. They try to make use of everything the PS4 controller offers, including shaking the controller. I found that it wouldn't register things properly, at key moments, which prevented me from the experience that I wanted. This was a bit of a rarity though, and didn't lead to any real frustrations.

    Lookout Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls

    First off the story, graphics, sound, replay value and voice acting really shine especially if you have played Heavy Rain. There is an evolution. The chronological and three central protagonists approach to the narrative structure was ideal helping the player of any skill level to understand how each of the androids reach their goal despite being from different backgrounds. There are multiple paths to reach objectives or earn certain trophies. The only drawback being you may lose a little or a lot of progress in your chapter completion due to checkpoints not always being conveniently placed. A missed or undesirable critical choice may cause you to have to repeat chapters or do another play through entirely due to how the game saves data. This is just a warning for trophy hunters. For example (without spoilers) Connor early in the game has two distinct paths which if you choose one key path over another you would definitely have to repeat a lot of the game to get the alternate path. To me this ups the replay value but trophy hunters might see it as a problematic. Lastly if you have played Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human the narratives lend themselves to exist in the same universe, in my opinion.

    This is definitely the culmination of Quantic Dreams' work to create an "interactive movie", reminiscent of older "choose your own adventure" novels. While it is not a difficult game by most standards, controlling the characters does feature heavily in the title - it is not something you merely watch (although an option that simplifies the controls is available for those looking to just enjoy the story). The way that the 3 main characters' stories intertwine remains interesting through the 15-20 hour playtime, although it does drift away from some of the greater societal questions of a science fiction novel to focus more on the character narrative. The themes of the story aren't terribly original, but the way that it uses the medium of interactive media to give you agency over the story feels incredibly fresh. The number of choices you can make, and how they impact the story, is staggering. I did not come close to seeing every possible outcome after 3 playthroughs. The graphics are also incredibly impressive and really push what's possible in terms of modeling real actors. I'd recommend this game to anyone looking for an interactive, narrative-driven sci fi experience.

    First off, this is not an action game! Nor is there a lot of live "in the moment gameplay." It's very similar to previous Quantum Break games, but if you haven't played those, then essentially it's a story game based on decisions and dialogue choices that plays out like a high budget choose-your-own-adventure movie. With that in mind, this game is AWESOME. The acting and graphics are incredible, some of the best realism graphics I have seen in any video game. And on PS4 Pro, this game is a real looker. The story was really interesting as well and I loved seeing where the three characters' stories develop and intertwine over the course of the maybe 10-12 hours. I played this game with my girlfriend (who likes gaming but doesn't play very often) and had a blast. It's the perfect game to play with someone who's not much of a traditional gamer and making decisions together to see how things pan out. Choices really do make a huge impact in this game and it was a lot of fun debating and making decisions on what paths to take. I'd highly recommend it.

    If you've played any of Quantic Dreams earlier games, you know what you're getting here. Game has good graphics and acting, but the story doesn't feel very original in the wake of shows like Humans & Westworld. The unlockable extras are nice (artwork, videos, soundtrack, character models). There's a helpful story flowchart showing you what you missed, so you can identify major branching paths to replay. However, If you're a completionist trying to get 100% the game can be VERY annoying. For example, looking at a picture on a wall might count toward 100%, but if you accidentally advance the story before you look at the picture, you lose the opportunity to unlock "Looked at picture" and you finish the level with 98%. Then the only way I've found to get 100% is to play through that chapter again from an earlier checkpoint, which might require a considerable amount of backtracking. Replaying the chapter is enjoyable if you're experiencing major story changes, but super annoying for 10 seconds of meaningless content just to get 100%. I doubt I'll be going for the platinum trophy in this game!

    This is easily a 9 or 9.5 for me. It's the first game i've ever played that made me feel like a mother... which is weird because i'm a guy. The story was excellent and the level of player choice was really very impressive. Decisions from early parts of the game continually impacted my choices and really made it feel like my choices mattered. I was also really impressed by how many scenarios had multiple possible endings so you rarely feel like you're being funnelled towards a certain objective. This is a huge step up from beyond two souls in terms of narrative and gameplay wise it greatly improves on heavy rain in terms of its smooth controls. You have to expect though that this game is primarily story driven. So don't buy it expecting lots of shooting or car chases. My biggest complaint is probably the box art.... like why david cage? why make such a great game and then choose one of the ugliest box art designs i've ever seen? This is one of the best games I've played so far this year and highly recommend it.

    This game is without a doubt the most graphically gorgeous video game I have ever laid eyes on. The story is so immersive, interwoven and has so many options to explore by playing repeatedly. I am on my second playthrough, and it is still worth playing. Quantic Dream delivers on an amazing, emotional story, that is for sure. My only complaint with the entirety of the game is the movement system is still like Heavy Rain, and could've been improved upon to be more fluid. You eventually get used to it, however and it does not drag this wonderful game down at all. Just beware if you have never played Heavy Rain or Beyond: Two Souls, however, that Quantic Dream does not put out your average shooter video game. This is a game driven by story, characters, your choices and consequences. If you want an action packed shoot 'em up, you have to look elsewhere. In summary, this game blew me away in nearly every aspect, and the only way I could possibly love it more is a better movement system, but don't let it deter you or get you down!

    This story is a good one. It really pulls you into the story from the beggining. There are 3 main characters to play with, Connor (an android cop who has been tasked to investigate fellow androids), Markus (privileged android who is called to a higher purpose) and Kara (a caretaker/mother android). There are a lot of ways the story can go, characters you get close to can die ... choices, as well as relationships you make, affect things later in the story. Play through once without going back to do anything over is the best way to go... you really feel responsible when you do that. Unlock points by doing things differently...which in turn you can use to "buy" extras such as videos, soundtracks, and the character gallery. The trophies are pretty easy to get but mutliple playthroughs might be needed. i've played through a few times and i'm still finding outcomes i havent seen, which is cool. Nice game but dont pay full price for it.
