Detroit: Become Human
Detroit: Become Human
"Visually and technically impressive, but not a very deep story resulting in a rather short game, or rather, interactive story is more like it. Mind you, the game is designed to instill multiple playthroughs by being able to branch the story in about a dozen places. I found the story to be completely predictable, at least the version that I completed. Compared to previous Quantic Dreams titles, there isn't much new and the game plays pretty closely to Heavy Rain. Which isn't really a good thing since Beyond Two Souls was a far superior game. It's as if they didn't learn anything about the bad parts of Heavy Rain, which were not present in Beyond, but are back in Detroit. It was still a mostly enjoyable 10 hours spent."

"I didn't get to play this when it came out in 2001. I played the PS3 "HD remaster". I found the game to be decent in terms of design and gameplay, but the story is threadbare and the textures were pretty low quality for an "HD remaster". The camera and movement controls can be very annoying compared to newer games. The variety of game mechanics is very limited compared to more modern games. Still, it makes for an enjoyable 8-10 hours."

"I can't quite pinpoint what's wrong with this game, the presentation is fine, but after playing for about an hour I had had enough and have no desire to return to the game."

"Really well made, but quite difficult. I got stuck at a boss battle around 10 hours in and wasn't able to get any further. No other RE game stopped me, so I'd say this one is significantly more difficult."

"Another entry in the Trials series. Very slick. You can create your own trials and play other people's creations. Playing the main game, the trials get quite difficult pretty quickly."

"The game has a pretty cool edgy presentation and everything seemed well-done but the gameplay didn't keep me interested for very long. I just don't like this type of game but I can see how others may really like it."

"Ugh. This game is a mess. Similar to the first one, graphics and voice acting are great, but that's about it. The story is poor. Gameplay is boring and uneven. At least this time around trophies are more reasonably obtained."

"First off, the artistic production value in this game is very high. The graphics are beautiful, the voice acting is for the most part really well done and the story is pretty decent. Unfortunately, you'll only get the whole story if you go around collecting the *hundreds* of optional artifacts and then read, listen or view each of them. This is not how games should tell a story. On the plus side, the game is extremely huge. If you're a completionist, you'll easily get 100 hours out of the base game not counting the expansions. Now for the bad. There isn't a whole lot of variety in what you need to do to complete the game. Even though I played the game in late 2020, there are still significant bugs in the game. Sometimes the bugs get in your way, sometimes they actually help you. My biggest complaint is that the variety of weapons are a joke. They are all pretty much the same, and the most powerful one is the very first one you get! The next thing that bugs me is that you cannot use the environment when battling the machines. These are the things that kept me from really loving the game and giving it five stars. Still, it was enjoyable enough and helped me kill 100 hours during the pandemic. Outside the pandemic I'm not sure I would have played this game."
