The newest Quantic Dream game is a visual feat but is utterly baffling in terms of story and action.
The very little I've seen of Detroit (the notorious father and child) definitely featured some signature David Cage dialogue. Hackneyed and clumsy. I still enjoyed his previous games in spite of the flaws, and I'm really looking forward to Detroit too. It's not like the genre is ripe with games that have more nuanced writing.
"What followed is a fight scene that is a genuine mess of quick time events. A smattering of prompts appeared, one after the other, designed to allow Kara to duck and weave the father's attacks." It appears we haven't moved the needle too far. Same old restrictions and unless they hire some writers I expect the same mess of a story too.
The bit you pasted sounds good to me.
Heavy rain and Fahrenheit scored well with critics. Even beyond has its moments. Until dawn (a Quantic Dream-esque game) also scored well. If Detroit is anything like heavy rain, Fahrenheit, and until dawn, then it’ll be another great PS4 exclusive.
seriously, WTF is wrong with developers making games they want to make?? why is QD getting ridiculed for their choice of the type of game they want to make? Telltales has been making nothing but this type of game but people love them? I don't hear anybody crying about it but when QD is doing it...they get these ridiculous nitpickings?? is it because of Sony? WTF? and now...THIS?? "Does Not Feel Quite Real" it's a freaking video game! what a ridiculous standards that the Sony game makers need to comply to in the eye of journalist! this is stupid!
If you temper your expectations, you'll probably enjoy it.
Great advice. If I expect it to be garbage I'll find a diamond in the rough. Smh
From the gameplay I saw at PSX Friday night,I'm definitely buying.
Yeah, the PSX demo made me want it more.
Me & a friend was watching Friday night & we were reacting just like the fans at the demo showing,after it was over we both said a day one buy!!
is there any gameplay or is it a another telltale type game with qte through the whole game, if so then its just a qte game and those games are not games
Whatever you say,check out the latest gameplay trailer at PSX.It's some really good stuff!
i just watched the psx detroit human gameplay, its a qte fest all the way, looks good though but yeah its a qte game
this is a wierd one for me, personally i dont mind qte games, and from what i watched its all qte with some other elements of walking qte choices. its just a little hard for me to take anyone here seriously. Everyone went crazy for a kojima movie with no gameplay, claiming it the next big thing but it is kojima so there is ahigh chance his game will be good with a high chance its just a wierd game that might be awesome or might not be, cool. but this game detroit, everyone here is going crazy claiming its awesome, everyone loves it, qte is cool but i also remember when any game that came out on xbox like ryse that only had qte during the end of fights and everyone here said they hate qte. thats just one example. so is qte events cool now or only when sony does it in the whole game.
I hope this will be another Heavy Rain/Fahrenheit and not another Beyond Two Soul. I love QD and I wish them to succeed.
I actually liked Beyond Two Souls not as much as heavy rain but I thought it was pretty good.
I liked Beyond Two Souls. Playing to player as Aiden with my wife was a lot of fun.
Well, it’s a game, so...
I enjoy David Cage's games. Yes he isnt the best script writter but he does a good job putting you in the shoes of the character you are controling. I still remember some scenes im heavy rain where I paused and said should I really do this...I never did that with a telltale game even though I enjoy them too
Telltales games used to be really great, especially TWD season 1 and 2 and Tales from the Borderlands. Now sadly, it is just a shell of its former self. I wonder what they could have done if they had stopped making episodic games and increase the production value of their games. It could have seriously rival games from studios like QD.
Scratch TWD season 2 and instead add Wolf Among Us
I did enjoy Borderlands, TWD season 1 and Wolf Among Us. I just feel with the new stuff it doesn't matter what option you choose they force you down a certain story. Where was David Cage lets you go down that rabbit hole with your choices.
I agree his dialogue isn't always that great, and the acting can go either way from one scene to the next...sometimes with the same actor. His stories are pretty good though, although I felt Heavy Rain had some glaring plot holes in the characters motivations and the reveals. Even Beyond, the worst story of the bunch was decent enough. As far as the QTE action, that's pretty typical of his games. If people enjoyed the other games despite those, they'll probably be OK with this game unless he completely botches the story.
QD games aren't for everyone, but this looks fantastic. I'm genuinely excited after the PSX demo.
Meh I like David Cage games regardless of their imperfections and I think Detroit will be just as enjoyable for me as other ones.
It's going to be the same 'ol David Cage outing. A QTE movie with just passable dialogue.
Well, that's good news for the fans of his games then.
"doesnt feel real" well, you are playing as a bunch of androids... just saying.
I will absolutely buy and support this game. I enjoyed both of his other games despite their flaws. I’m all I’m on single player experiences and can’t wait to play it!
Smells like David Cage has pushed out another turd. When are people going to realize that his games are just bad films with a tiny bit of interactivity? They always have dreadful writing and terrible scripts
When are people going to accept that others do like his games?
The people who like his games wouldn't like them if they used their brains and thought critically. Or at least, they certainly wouldn't like them as much as they do.
@ Gespenst: sure, whatever you say.
Funny. I use my brain, and can easily dissect what is wrong with the games, the story, and come to a conclusion on it's worth in comparison to other stories. But I still enjoy the games, because they're entertaining. I'm not looking for Godfather levels of story telling, but what Cage does do is build a story that is compelling and interesting. Despite the limited interactivity, I can name many instances within his games which have more tension than some games which are already intense. The scene where you have to cut off your finger, or crawl through the glass in Heavy Rain for instance actually made you feel the tension.
I really loved Heavy Rain. I was disappointed with Beyond but I was entertain. Overall David Cage is not completely bad games as you and other people make it seem. Yes, the script and writing is not great but is not horrible rather is ok. Detroit gameplay on PSX convince me that it a day one for me.
I guess most critics are stupid and don’t think critically then, since heavy rain and Fahrenheit both scored well.
Looking forward to this, I like Quantic Dreams other games
The PSX demo looked FANTASTIC. Day 1 for me.
I guess a lot of you missed the live demo during PSX.. this game is gonna be awesome..
Another flop smh lol. Whats the point of having exclusives if their all gonna suck.
Could you possibly troll any harder?
PlayStation would have cut ties, if it was a flop so try harder you troll.
You dont know the frikkn story the game aint even out yet, thats like me judging gameinformer in this moment and time saying gameinformer has a crap story....thing is, I know gameinformer so I can say They Does Not Feel Quite Quality :P Plus we're talking about scifi thhat will/IS becoming non-fiction...
Interesting as I think this is the first negative impression. That is fine. Personally for me the new Kara trailer had me at the edge of my seat and stole the show. I will no doubt buy it because these types of games only come out once or twice a gen.
Well the more I see of Detroit the more I want to play it!
Everybody is a writing critic....all i know is i immensely enjoyed Heavy Rain despite all of the complaints. My wife sat there and watched me play it like she was watching a movie. Beyond Two Souls, while not as good as Heavy Rain was enjoyable also. Buy or rent the game and decide for yourself.
Looks pretty dreck
Of course it don't. There's androids in it.
