How is the story?
The story follows 3 main protagonists, who are all androids, in a world where androids serve humans. The premise of the story without spoilers is that the 3 androids much choose for themselves what they are going to do when the androids demand to be treated just like humans. It sounds very cliche, but believe me, it is a lot better than you might expect. Here are the 3 main protagonists and some information about each of them.
Connor – He is an RK800 android and one of the three protagonists in Detroit: Become Human. Built as an advanced prototype, he is designed to assist human law enforcement; specifically in investigating cases involving deviant androids.
Sent to the Detroit City Police Department, Connor has been assigned to work with Lt. Hank Anderson. Throughout the course of their investigation, Connor may make discoveries about cases and himself, and become a deciding agent in tipping the coming events.
Kara – She is an AX400 android and one of the three protagonists in Detroit: Become Human. She is a common housemaid android serving in the home of her owner Todd Williams and caring for his daughter Alice.
Kara’s connection to her young charge may trigger an upheaval that breaks Kara from her repetitive existence and starts her on a journey out into the world, at a time when androids may rise up and confront their creators.
Markus – He is an RK200 android and one of the three protagonists of Detroit: Become Human. He is a domestic android owned by famous Detroit painter Carl Manfred.
Events catapult him out of his familiar life and lead him on to freedom and rebellion. During the game, he becomes the leader of the deviants and may direct them in either a violent or peaceful revolt against human oppression and thus decides the future of his species.
What is the game similar to?
If you have ever played any of the Telltale games, then this game is much similar to them. It is a little more involved because you can end up killing the main characters off if you don’t choose the right things to do. It is made by Quadratic Dream, who also made Beyond Two Souls and Heavy Rain. You can also say that it is similar to Until Dawn, but the choice aspect is what makes the game soo good.
If you like choose your own adventure games, then this game is definitely worth looking into, just because the story and how the protagonists work their way towards each other, it makes for an intense and compelling story. Honestly, it is similar to other games, but there is nothing else like it out there.
How are the mechanics?
The choices you make in the game determine your outcomes for each character. One choice you make with Connor might affect Markus in some way. You have to really think about what you will choose because you might do something you don’t want to do. You can replay a specific section if you did something you didn’t want to do, but it might take you out of the game if you see a couple of outcomes right away.
Also, the way the choices and animations are laid out on the screen is brilliant. It just flows along with what your characters are doing onscreen and it has the most polished look to it. You can also tell by gauges onscreen when you are doing something wrong as well, just pay attention to whatever the game tells you.
Are the graphics any good?
The graphics are absolutely amazing in this game. Quadratic Dream did an amazing job with the character models and the animations look so real, you might mistake it for real-life. It is getting to the point where video games might actually look better than real-life and this is one of those games that just blows you away when you play it.
The fighting animations in this game are also very good. There isn’t combat you can control yourself, but it still gets really intense even though it might be a button click fight. The graphics are just amazing in this game and definitely worth looking into just for them alone.
Is it worth it?
It is definitely worth buying. Not only is the replayability a main part of the game, but it also gives you a choice to play the game however you want. Every choice you make has a consequence no matter if it is bad or good, but it is your choice to make alone. I would wait for a sale, but I still would pay the full price for it. If you do get it, I hope you make the right choices.
