Detroit: Become Human is a poignantly pulpy interactive sci-fi drama where your choices can impact events to a greater and more satisfying degree than in most games of this type. Though I wish its story had been handled with a softer touch, especially considering the subtlety that can be conveyed through its tech and performances, its well-written and acted central trio were vital enough to me that I found myself feeling genuine distress when they were in danger and a sense of victory when they triumphed. Most importantly, Detroit offers a multitude of transparent branching paths that entice further playthroughs, and choices have a permanence that raise the stakes throughout.

Its big themes are glibly handled, though this is still Quantic Dream's most credible and satisfying interactive yarn by far.

A considerable improvement on Quantic Dreams' previous work, and while the storytelling is still flawed its tale of abused androids feels very human.

Quantic Dream has mastered making a very playable, even enjoyable interactive experience. But there's always this performative feeling behind it — always this reminder that, for as much as someone wants to help out a cause, there's a difference between saying it and doing it.

Detroit: Become Human presents a gripping tale that's occasionally sullied by blatant missteps.

Detroit tells a story of robots who look and act relatively human, making their way through a nonsense world where everyone, even the humans, doesn't actually look or act human at all. It's a fragmented radio broadcast from a valley within the uncanny valley, so many layers deep in unreality that it could never hope to make it out intact.

Detroit: Become Human improves upon its predecessors by having a cast that you enjoy and want to spend more time around. Quantic Dream's visual craft and presentation is top-notch, but the writing hasn't quite caught up yet. It isn't subtle and some of the references to social ills are amazingly on-the-nose instead of being more unique. It's better than Beyond: Two Souls, but there's still room to grow.

For those like me who have enjoyed Quantic Dream's games as a guilty pleasure, this is the studio's first release where the story meets its ambition.

Detroit: Become Human, like most Quantic Dream games, is filled with muddled symbolism and a spark of hope amidst its most interesting universe yet. It doesn't have anything particular new to say, but it delivers in terms of drama, to the point where I started a second playthrough shortly after my first seven hour-ish run. It's flawed, but coherent, which is an upgrade.

Detroit: Become Human really is like sitting down and playing a TV box set. It's a technical masterpiece on PS4 with movie quality sound, lighting and camera work, which is backed up by some top quality action and a wonderfully evocative score. Detroit really worked for me; I was gripped by the story and connected with the characters, but I think some players may have a hard time relating to Kara, Markus, and Connor. That's to be expected. After all, we're only human.

Quantic Dream surpasses everything it has done before with Detroit: Become Human. A huge script allows for a thrilling story to have multiple layers that, at the same time, deal with topics such as slavery, the human condition or the concept of identity. A real masterpiece of the genre.

Even with some little flaws, Detroit is the best game ever created by Quantic Dream. You'll really feel yourself close to the characters. Be ready for your instincts and principles to be tested.

What makes Detroit: Become Human a great game, though, is that even after going back through alternate narrative branches and winding down my play time, I'm still invested. The world that Quantic Dream gave me to explore is only a short leap from the one we're living in now, and the ideas presented have left me contemplating the role AI could play in our lives sooner rather than later.

Detroit has produced an exciting dramatic story based on fictional events but very close to our reality. A group of well-designed characters, both in terms of dramatic appearance and background, the way they interact with events, the dazzling cinematic level of film and the player's options directly affect the story, The game delays procrastination in some seasons and the difficulty of controlling some situations even though the title depends entirely on the options that appear on the screen, in addition to the expected surprises at the end of the story and some positions that are not explained satisfactorily.

Try it if you really want to see how hard it is to make branching narrative work on this scale. Otherwise, just catch up on Westworld.
