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.

Although I have not played the previous games from this game studio that includes Fahrenheit, Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, Detroit Become Human, makes me want to go back and explore those games to see what I missed. In a game that reminds me of one of my favorite movies, the original Blade Runner, it has that kind of look and feel that almost makes me feel like I am Decker in a new story. In this case, you play multiple characters throughout the story, including a Decker-like negotiator for the police force.
The graphics are well done and detailed with its futuristic landscape of Detroit with a story that really depends on the choices you make with the various characters throughout the game. Having just completed AC: Origins, this game feels slow paced and the game controls a bit clumsy as compared to what I was used to. To be fair though, this is that type of game, similar to Life is Strange, among others, where the game focuses more on choice you own adventure type story more than action and being an open world game.
The game has good voice acting and the music and background provide for good atmosphere. The game is a bit linear as you don’t really have much freedom to explore other than the immediate area that you are in. A big red “do not go here” type banner keeps you from wandering too far.
Early on, I found the story to be compelling enough to keep me motivated in playing. The game starts fairly slowly though with various mundane tasks to do in the opening scenes. Some camera movement is a bit finicky and as I previously mentioned, find the game controls to be a bit sluggish and clumsy. Although the game is a bit short, maybe 10 hours of gameplay, by the end, I had become emotionally invested in the story and the characters. The game really has a good story that could be made into a movie, one that I would watch.
With that being said, this game is a nice change of pace from my frantic searching for quests in the AC series and it has interested me enough to go back to play the previous efforts from this game studio. If you like the previous efforts such as Heavy Rain or games like Life is Strange, then this will keep you occupied for a while, exploring the various choices and differing stories that those choices result in. There are some many game variables, that your exact experience and story may be unique from anyone else’s game.

Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the game case comes in Spanish, when it clearly states in the description that its supposed to be in English.
