Detroit: Become Human Reviews

  • Detroit: Become Human Review - USgamer - "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."
  • Detroit: Become Human Review - IGN - 8.0/10 - "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."
  • Detroit: Become Human Review - GameSpot - 7/10 - "Detroit is well worth playing, but it struggles to strike the right balance between giving you freedom of choice and reminding you that it's all a game in the end."
  • Detroit: Become Human Review - Eurogamer - No Award - "With this glib, rabble-rousing and admittedly enjoyable thriller, Quantic Dream has finally delivered on the promise of its interactive storytelling format, and resolved its difficult relationship with cinema."
  • Detroit: Become Human Review - VG247 - No Score - "There’s no growth from what has been done before by Quantic Dream and the game’s best moments only evoke sequences done better in Fahrenheit or Heavy Rain."
  • Detroit: Become Human Review - VideoGamer.com - 4/10 - "Detroit: Become Human wants to move you. It wants to elicit an emotional response through its story. The thing is, it really doesn't."

So there you have it. Detroit: Become Human turned out, well, about as well as most people expected. If you're after more on the game, head over to our Detroit: Become Human guide. We've got game info, tips, and details on the actors playing the lead characters.

Tom started life on a circus in Australia before his family moved to the UK. His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
