    Detroit : Become Human

    No thead for a 1st party AAA game.
    Looks like they have a flop on their hands.


    Gotta love me some David Cage, so picked this up.

    The game starts off on a really high point of the same mission from the demo, it quickly resorts to having you QTE clean houses and do other tedious gesture based padding. If you've played Heavy Rain, the you might rememember the happy golden start of the game where you get Ethan ready for work and clean the garden.
    It's actually more tedious this in this one, but hey at least you get to do it whilst admiring some of the best graphics and HDR content that money can buy.

    The graphics themselves are incredible, just as previous games have been, however we are still lodged firmly in uncanny valley a lot of the time, with lip syncing particular not being quite as good as you might expect.

    David Cage claims to have avoided watching/reading other similar content, but unfortunately so far the game lands squarely into all of the same tropes as other media in the same genre. It feels immediately similar to Real Humans / HUMANs Tv series . 2 of the main characters are in almost Carbon copy situations at the start of the game to the charactesr from those series.

    You have Marcus who is a carer Android for an old man
    Kara who is a maid for abusive man- Kara has been taken in for repair and has had her memory wiped.

    Everything is firmly falling within the realm of Blade Runner, AI, I, Robot and Ex Machina at the moment.

    I'm Keen to play it some more and see how the story becomes it's own thing.

    It's installed and ready to go. Just knackered after the post-holidsy tidy up.

    Hoping to start it tonight. The demo was great. If you like that sort of thing (which I do).

    Purchased on Saturday.
    Been playing it for approx 12 hours and nearing the end.
    Echo what you’ve said so far about the game.
    Overall the storyline is interesting and graphics are brilliant in 4K, ashamed to say I’ve never played Heavy Rain but I’m really enjoying this game. The use of the ‘flowchart’ after every level which shows the decisions you’ve made,allow for playing through again by making different decisions but tbh I’ll just be playing through the once.

    Everything Quantic dream have done has been garbage. I expect nothing more from this one!

    I like the flowchart too, it at least gives you an insight into the fact their may be different events or triggers in a particular area or sequence.

    Playing this since last Thursday.As Boris has said,graphics and hdr are spot on and I’m enjoying the game.Think I’m nearing the end but with the flow chart it shows quite a bit of replay ability.

    Just done the prologue which was the demo. Managed to do a couple more things though.

    My goodness it is a stunning game. The eyes are ridiculously good.

    Music seems good too.

    I don't think the characters are the most impressive part, it's the environments.

    Zlatko's Mansion looks like REMake prerenders do in my mind.

    Done and dusted.

    Overall I really enjoyed it. Short and sweet (approx 9 hours) but as mentioned before, I went back via the flowcharts and made a few different decisions to get a different ending.

    The storyline was good, however being honest I was getting tired towards the end with regards to the QTE events and lack of user control.

    A good solid 7/10 I’d say.

    The story picked up, I actually thought it was pretty good come the end. The game gave me enough control over what I wanted to do to move me away from the more tropey stuff.

    Graphics really blew me away, the areas of the strip club (rolleyes) and Jericho were amazing, I could swear I was watching a film at times.
