Game Information

Available on:PCApr 28, 2016

Developer: Rival Games

Genre: Interactive Story

The Detail, a crime noir adventure in a modern American city. Controlling the actions of a bitter veteran detective investigating a brutal gangland murder and a reformed criminal trying to protect his family, the player is forced to make tough choices and deal with the resulting consequences of those moral dilemmas. The gameplay focuses on branching narrative mixed with interactive comics, and is completed by a professional audio track.

The Detail combines the emotional impact of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead with the themes of a realistic crime drama like HBO's The Wire, delivered with our own unique visual style inspired heavily by graphic novels. This is city where cases matter, clearance rates matter, and on a good day even justice matters.

6.5 / 10.0

The Detail is a videogame where the dialogues and its design are the parts that stand out the most. However, the mechanics are so simple that  it can be considered as an interactive comic.

4 / 10

If the same calibre of quality was available from beginning to end then The Detail would be a well recommended game. As it stands, however, the game ends on a low note, just like this review.

When it comes to crafting a game that stands out from the rest, the devil is in the details, and that is what Rival Games needs to add to their next game.
