Detroit: Become Human review - VideoGamer

VideoGamer: "Detroit: Become Human wants to move you. It wants to elicit an emotional response through its story. The thing is, it really doesn't. The flowchart is a nice inclusion and adds some variance, but when the narrative is as cringey and ham-fisted as it is you won't want to play through it multiple times."

What the hell kinda review is this JESUS who the hell let this man write this.. Did you play the same game or what .
I mean come on look at it and read it jesus. hes just trolling

chrisx180d ago (Edited 180d ago )

the negative agenda of this review is as clear as day and this is nothing but a pathetic attempt at click bait.

Septic180d ago

Anything in particular you dont like in this review? Other than the score of course.

gangsta_red180d ago

Click and bait...clickbait!

Prince_TFK180d ago

I feel like Sony should trademark the word “Clickbait” for their fans to use whenever their games get low reviews score.

OB1Biker180d ago

The last part of the review is weird tbh. ' if you belly laugh at QD' etc

BlackTar187180d ago

Weird that septic is only in the low reviews. Wait no it isn't lol

Lokii180d ago

I see also that septic is lurking around the lower score page's.

Septic180d ago

^^ Funny thing is, the first comment I made on a review for this was an article that scored this a 9. But you can carry on deflecting as faithful followers 😊

darthv72180d ago

It could also be that this person does not understand the depth a david cage game requires to fully enjoy it.

hulk_bash1987180d ago

David Cage's games have always been polarizing. But I've enjoyed both Heavy Rain and B2S regardless of their flaws. And based on the demo, I'm 100% sure I'll enjoy Detroit as well.

showtimefolks180d ago


It's wrong that's why because game has an overall 80/100.

BTW this game on Xbox one would be considered GOTY material

When every exclusive is 68/100 than 80/100 is legit

antz1104180d ago (Edited 180d ago )

Lol I love how a PS exclusive gets 2 low scores on the main page and it's click bait. Maybe the very positive ones are click bait too.

bolimekurac180d ago

go to metacritic there is tons of negative reviews, what did you guys expect, all 10's across the board for a qte game. you people are amazing

n1kki6180d ago

Omg someone has a different opinion than you. You havent enven played the game, but since it doesnt align with your tgoughts about the game it has to be trolling. For fucks sake everyone is so intollerent of varying opinions

IamTylerDurden1180d ago (Edited 180d ago )

This is literally the worst review on Metacritic. It's averaging an 80 and at the time it had 63 reviews 22 of them were 9/10 or better. The problem is, certain critics have seemingly had an agenda against this game and the developer for a while. I feel like this game would be in the mid 80's if it weren't for the troll reviews.

gamer7804180d ago

@Septic only playing 40 minutes of the game, I disagree with the belly laugh part, I've already felt for 4 of the characters. So far so good, I need to play more to recommend but it feels like a living breathing futuristic world.

This is a David Cage game, there are always going to be people who hate it. I'm not worried, looking forward to getting the game tomorrow!

dirkdady180d ago

Yea not surprised games devisive samething happened with heavy rain and was glad I didn't listen to the naysayers as it was fantastic. You gotta give the game a chance with an open mind

harv052180d ago

Yeah this. Most Quantic Dreams games are a love it or hate it kinda thing....I personally love them!

I expect some to hate a game like this, and I don't think its a big deal.

Psychotica180d ago (Edited 180d ago )

Well SATAN, it is just an opinion. Just because it doesn't match yours doesn't mean he is trolling, satan..

MattE180d ago

Just accept it and move on.. Not every game will be a masterpiece

trooper_180d ago

A 4 is literally saying the game is unplayable crap.

This review is straight up biased.

neocores8055180d ago

I see alot of xbox punks commenting here. Lol But hey the game still SITTING AT AN 80 and xbox still has nothing to show. There for this game is great and i cant wait to get it.

IamTylerDurden1180d ago

It's bothersome that just because it has a deep and meaningful narrative they say it is "ham-fisted". They say it fails to engage yet the game is an 80 Metacritic. Obviously the majority of people were entertained and likely engaged.

neocores8055180d ago

To the guy saying there are TONS of bad reviews last time i check it was only 20 with over 74 amazing ones sooo yeah lol... Nice try

SuperSaiyanGod41180d ago

I knew this game would have mixed reviews but yeah 4 out of 10 is seeking attention. Like I said I knew this was going to get mixed reviews but hey so far it's got sum pretty good reviews as well. Game is still going to sell very well.

Deep-throat180d ago

I think 4 is harsh, maybe 7.5 is the right score (AAA graphics, polished, story)

remixx116180d ago

I typically see you bash games without extensive amounts of gameplay, didnt think youd like something like this

spicelicka180d ago

It seems like a love it or hate it type of game.

kevnb180d ago (Edited 180d ago )

why? If you don't like the story what is their to make the "game" any good?

G3ng4r180d ago

Saw this coming more than a year ago. Game is probably not going to sell very well, no, it's a generic movie with a premium video game price tag.

doggo84180d ago

So you saw it getting an 80 on metacritic hahaha, ok man :) at least now you know the game is good and you can move on now.

Realms180d ago

5/10 and below should be reserved to broken, glitchy, games no matter how much you hate a game you have to try and be objective not punish a game for not being what you want it to be.

GamesMaster1982180d ago

Well i guess you can compare this review from this site to the site's that gave Sea Of Thieves 9's and 10's silly, unreal and clickbait and sad.

Atanasrikard180d ago

I bet when this site gave Sea of Thieves a 6 you probably touted how great and spot on this site was. I am not agreeing with this site, just pointing out the hypocrisy.

GamesMaster1982180d ago (Edited 180d ago )

No . I still thought clickbait as sea of thieves still does not deserve a 6. And yes I have played it .

Atanasrikard180d ago


I have played it as well and I would give it a different score. Interesting how that works isn't it. Different people give different games different scores. It's almost like a review is a person's opinion on how they feel about a particular game. Even if it may not agree with the mainstream.

However, that is beside the point. I don't recall you ever saying anything about Sea of thieves score being clickbait. Just because someone scored something in a way you don't like doesn't make it clickbait.

kevnb180d ago

maybe some people like sea of thieves and hate Detroit, how dare they not agree with you!

GamesMaster1982180d ago

It's not that. Its clear that the person doing this review does not like these types of games so are clearly going to give it a low score, like a non sport fan reviewing say Fifa, but hey im not bothered most other sites have givin it a great review and i love David Cage games from Farenheit so it was always going to be a day one duy from me since it was announced so at the end of day its still another great PS4 game to add to their never ending library.

Urzusix180d ago

So upsetting, I used to love Video Gamer back in the day, seems like the new owner isn't putting up much investment

obidanshinobi180d ago

Yeah, their YT channel used to be great. Now it's just Colm and Alice doing the best they can with less resources than Burns, Miller and Jim had.
At a time when they should've been expanding they seem to of imploded instead.

Veneno180d ago

That site and the old crew were very quality. But none of them are there any longer which is probly why it went downhill.

InKnight7s180d ago

Pathetic site. So typical click dreamer. Block list. I really admire uniqueness and respectful opinions, but this is more than bluffing.

porkChop180d ago

They're far from the only site giving the game a negative review though. There are quite a few.

I haven't played the game yet, so obviously I don't know if it's good or not. But this negative opinion isn't isolated, so I wouldn't immediately write it off as click bait. Read the negative reviews and see if they have some criticism in common.

InKnight7s180d ago

K defender. explain to me how 4/10 is valid? even games that couldn't run like half of Ubisoft games didn't got that score although the games sucks in every aspects and barely run good even after 2 months of the intial release.

4/10 for a playable game with great graphics and QTE story style, sound more than negative opinion for me. I think its not his style and he/she was expecting heavy action and real time gameplay or hateful. and both case wants to get attention.

doggo84180d ago

So what about the majority of reviews, which are positive? Let's just ignore those right, because agendas need to be fulfilled.

porkChop180d ago


Who's ignoring them? Most of the reviews are positive, I never said anything to the contrary. Pointing out that there are other negative reviews does not mean that every review is negative. My point was that as with any other game, when there are negative reviews you need to look past the score and read what actual criticism is being brought up. Do you not try to educate yourself on a product before you buy it? I rarely buy a game without understanding the common pros and cons of each game.

And there's no agenda here. I've played both Heavy Rain and Beyond. They had their issues, as do all games, but I still enjoyed them. I think Beyond was a better game overall, but I felt the story in Heavy Rain was superior. And I will absolutely buy Detroit once I get through my backlog. I was initially bothered by the inclusion of Jesse Williams, just being honest, but I'll still get the game.

porkChop180d ago

I'm not defending the score. I'm talking about the content of the negative reviews. The scores are meaningless, what matters is what they actually say.

OB1Biker180d ago (Edited 180d ago )

I just skimmed through it but what do you think of the last part of the review? Its clearly taking into account some bias against QD. What I got from a few reviews is its the best QD title. Of course now its matter of liking this type of game or not
Edit: and no, I don't want to believe telltale games are better like he suggests.

porkChop180d ago (Edited 180d ago )

I do agree with you. I definitely disagree with them about Telltale. Telltale can write a good story, but the actual gameplay design is far behind Quantic Dreams and Supermassive. Telltale hasn't really progressed in that area since the first Walking Dead season.
