The Detail - Season One Reviews
An engaging thriller, even if you are only two days away from retirement.
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.
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.

What you have here is two thirds of a good show that has been axed by the television network, leaving the studio to sort itself out, bringing an end to the season early, except what was offered for a closure was a cop-out, robbing The Detail of a truly satisfying ending that it deserves.
The Detail is a genuinely interesting story with fleshed-out characterisation and a lovely look. With a little more attention paid to branching conversations and the consequences of your actions, season 2 of The Detail (fingers crossed!) could be pretty special. As it stands just now, season 1 is a pretty good proof of concept.
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.
