I’ve finally gotten the chance to sit down and play Detroit: Become Human and I thought what better way to celebrate it’s release than writing a little post about it!
First off, it’s visually amazing. I can’t get over how good the graphics are in this game, you can see every pore on someone’s face and each individual hair on their head so clearly, I’m always stunned at the talent animators possess!
The storyline is really interesting too, I’m only a couple hours in but I’m very intrigued. You follow three characters, Connor, Marcus and Kara who are all androids and each of their stories is really diverse from the other. Marcus takes care of a sick elderly man, Connor works with the police to solve crimes and Kara works as a housekeeper.
I’m also very pleasantly surprised at just how much my choices matter. I’m always a little skeptical when I hear a game talk about player choice when a lot of the time my actions in the game don’t have a lasting effect, but Detroit is something else. At the end of each chapter you’re presented with a flow chart of every action you took leading up to the outcome and things that you may have been missed during your play through.
There’s a real sense of urgency in some moments, particularly the opening scene with Connor having to save a little girl from a deviant android. I was fortunate enough to have saved her but I ended up killing Connor in the process, which was pretty upsetting. Luckily though I had my trusty flowchart to tell me exactly where I went wrong!
The one piece of advice I will give to any prospective players of Detroit is to look at everything because you never know what information may be useful later.
So that’s all my thoughts on Detroit: Become Human for now, I’m definitely going to be playing more of it this week.
Thanks so much for reading!
