From the manufacturer
Travel to the near-future metropolis of Detroit – a city rejuvenated by an exciting technological development: androids. Witness your brave new world turn to chaos as you take on the role of Kara, a female android trying to find her own place in a turbulent social landscape.
Shape an ambitious branching narrative
Making choices that will not only determine your own fate, but that of the entire city. Discover what it means to be human from the perspective of an outsider – see the world of man though the eyes of a machine.
Detroit: Become Human is the latest title in development by Quantic Dream and expands on the studio’s legacy of gripping narrative driven experiences (Fahrenheit/Heavy Rain/ Beyond: Two Souls). Throughout the game, players will co-write the story through the actions of several protagonists in an ambitiously bending and thrilling narrative. Detroit: Become Human is set in Detroit City during the year 2038 after the city has been revitalized by the invention and introduction of Androids into everyday life. But when Androids start behaving as if they are alive, events begin to spin out of control. As the player, you will embody several characters, amongst which KARA, CONNOR, and MARKUS. AsKara, you will witness your brave new world turn to chaos as you take on the role of a female service android trying to find her own place in a turbulent social landscape. Whilst you shape the branching narrative as Connor, an Android Cop employed by the human police force to seek out deviant Android such as Markus, a leader of the android group seeking freedom for his people, you will be making choices that will not only determine your own fate, but that of the entire city and possibly beyond. Discover what it really means to be human in a powerfully emotional journey made of choice and consequences.

First, I'd like to say that the graphics in this game are drop-dead gorgeous. I own all of the big triple A titles on the PlayStation 4, and my husband (who is really picky about graphics) think they the best he's ever seen. At first, he was not interested in watching me play (he doesn't play games himself, but sometimes he watches me depending on the game) because choose your own adventure games are not his thing, but the graphics and storyline really drew him and he watched me excitedly the entire game. So trust me - that says a lot right there!
I am in love with the characters and storyline. The whole concept of robots becoming too mortal is definitely not an original concept, but DBH has really made an interesting, multi-layered storyline out of it. Like Heavy Rain, a lot of the character's storylines weave together and keep you on the edge of your seat. You have to make really important decisions in a split second and sometimes you think you totally just botched something.
The good news is that the game has a kind of "flowchart" that shows you your decisions and which paths you didn't unlock without spoiling anything. There will just be a "lock" icon down other paths. This is really interesting because you get a feel for what you missed (some scenes there aren't a whole lot of paths while some have a LOT) and can go back later to try something different. I LOVE this feature...and I think this may push it ahead of even Heavy Rain for me.
There are some complaints about the length of the game. True - it is not a super long game, but one of the big selling points of all of Quantic Dream's games are the multiple paths and endings so the re-play value is really high. It will definitely not be the only time I play the game!
If you have enjoyed Quantic Dream's past games or really enjoy this genre, please don't be scared off by any kind of negative reviews and buy this game right away. Some people just really don't like the creator, David Cage or this kind of game in general (it is not for everyone). But if you enjoyed Heavy Rain or Beyond: Two Souls, don't even hesitate for two seconds...you will love this game.
The visuals are the best ever put on a standard PS4, bar none. And yes, I do know that is quite a statement. To that I say play it. I can only imagine how stellar this game looks in 4K because I've "mostly" decided to wait out the PS Pro period in lieu of the upcoming PS5 in 2019 or 2020. The graphic genius of this game isn't limited to the game itself either. Even a portion of a game usually an afterthought, the load screen menu, has instead been presented as sort of game concierge in the form of a beautifully rendered A.I. who develops a personality as you choose how you interact with her. Oops, pronoun slip, "how you interact with it." It's really very cool.
What I find most interesting is the fact that we may be dealing with very similar issues very, very soon. This game did it's research well. Even one major thing that a Turing test can't measure as it pertains to intelligence and consciousness is taken into account. It's a very well written and directed game and story.
Gameplay is overall akin to the TellTale series. That being the case replay is limited, though despite the oxymoron, in this case it is also extensive.
There are so many choices you can make in a given scenario but time being linear you have only so much time to make them. Each choice, each action or inaction has a different outcome and opens or closes possible scenarios for the following events. This allows one to replay the game once it has finished and try alternative approaches to each chapter of the game.
The game control scheme uses the PS4 controller abilities more so than any prior game that I have ever seen, please enlighten me if you know of another. It goes from simple button clicking and steering ones character to requiring one to use both hands for some button/stick/touchpad/full controller finesse during certain high intensity situations. Other than that challenge the controls are good, if limited, and once you get the knack of steering and understand each character's limitations (a process not taught through any tutorial but presented in an as you play manner) the control becomes instinctual.
One slight knock is that due to the nature of this sort of game, it can feel a bit like a ride on rails. This is a story that is definitely pushing you towards an end. But you get over that very quickly due to it's incredibly immersive nature.
And if I didn't stress this point enough yet, this game is absolutely beautiful. I mean, damn. If the visuals of this game alone weren't worth every cent I don't know what is.
Sorry about my language but nothing else really fits that jaw dropping emotion better in this case. This game looks so good I could handle it just fine if games never got much better than this one from a purely visual standpoint. This is so close that with just a bit more tweaking our games will be indistinguishable from reality, aside from the scents and tactile feedback. I think we're still a generation away from anything like Ready Player One promised.
I think every true videogame fan needs to at the very least rent this game. But I'm betting you won't mind adding it to your collection once you've played it, seen the possibilities, and know how the replay is going to work. I can't wait to see how many ways I can finish some scenes already and I haven't even finished the game. Though I do have a couple good days in it. 😉
Go download the demo from the PS Store. It's the entire first scene from the game and gives you a great idea of it's depth and possibilities. Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoy this game as much as I am now.
