Quantic Dream’s latest interactive adventure is visually stunning but thematically shallow.
Oh I see a storm coming
Well, i disagree with this article.
This reviewer is just another useless SJW. The review itself is also pretty terrible.
What storm? that's his opinion. millions of people are totally enjoying the game.
storm is not coming. retard opinions don't count anyways. nothing is here, just site to blacklist.
No disrespect to God of War, I'm just not an action RPG fan, but Detroit is my personal GOTY so far. Loved every second of it. Heavily disagree with this review.
@CP, registerguard.com, meet the Hosts file...
Yep I'm one of them 😁
Well congratulations to both of you for making me click on the link ;-;
It's his opinion but fanboys get soooooooo butthurt and will attack anything that doesn't match their opinion because somehow their opinions shuld be held at a higher standard. Alot consist of little kiddies though. ESPECIALLY Nintendo games OMG. Those r cruel ppl. Get ready for a lynch mob and board up ur windows or find a bunker to hide in. If u say anything u dont like OMG.
@goldenhawk Isnt it the point of comment section to express opinions? Arent you the one getting offended because people express their opinion? I don't get the Nin reference though haha
I know right... it debuted at #3 on the NPD right behind 'State of Decay 2' and 'God of War'... not like people put it in a long list of exclusives that showed that Sony was bringing the heat this year. Wait.... or did they say 'State of Decay 2' was going to be a failure and 'Detroit' was the game that was setting new bars for other games? I can never remember from day one to day two.
Morganfell, the epitome of whats wrong with gaming. "Boohoo, i dont like their opinion - block them! Its just not fair for someone to have a different opinion than mine. It shouldnt be allowed! Its not fair! Block them!" Why you so butthurt that someone dislikes a game you like? It must be hard personally disagreeing with millions of gamers. But, keep fighting "the good fight!"
Optimist Millions are enjoying and it's selling well so maybe the author didn't enjoy it good for him or her there are plenty of other games to enjoy QD and their games are unique and appeal to certain types of gamers so we understand not everyone will like their games That's why they are with Sony/playstation. Playstation have the most diverse fanbase We don't all like the same games that's why it's good to have something for everyone
"However, “Detroit” continues Quantic Dream’s terrible streak of treating women in its games like items meant to be objectified" Aaaaaaaand there it is, I was doing a count down to the inevitable "let's wreck this game's score because i have an agenda and cant appreciate a game for what it is" .
Can this ‘review’ effect the current 78 score on Metacritic? Is there a close off window for reviews or can anyone basically create a site, write a hollow review in an attempt to weigh down the overall score?
Just use opencritic and remove the snowflake reviews
^ Removing a review because it hurts your feels is a snowflake action. Keep thinking your special opinion is the only one.
@G3ng4r Why would someone want to include or consider reviews from someone who has a different viewpoint on certain subjects? That's like accepting a review from someone who doesn't like racing games that reviewed a racing game. There's plenty of other reviewers out there with opinions more in line with your own. That's really how reviews should work. Not some consolidated number. Find reviewers who have similar interests and likes as you, and listen to what they have to say.
@G3ng4r No, It’s just journalists BS agenda.
Only has 78 on metacritic? Wow that's low for a PS4 exclusive title.
The problem is that not all reviews should be treated equally, some will be biased in either direction. The problem is that we all have our own biases so if you manually try to exclude any then you will always have some whiners. I would use an automated system, for example I would ignore the top and bottom 5% of reviews. That way the blind fanboys and blind haters will mostly be excluded.
@Jinger Is that you? Lol
I’m not understanding as to why I got downvotes for asking a legitimate question. I loved the game, personally. I’m still wondering if the ‘review’ here will effect the current Metacritic score or any reviews beyond this point are ignored by this point.
Dumahim - you cant be serious. What a closed bubble you must live in... whats the point in reading reviews when they will all be what you want them to be? Might as well just write (or form) your own and ignore everyone elses. Its essentially what you're already doing....
But most cultures around the world still treat women like window dressing and objectify them, even mine in the UK to some extent. I can't stand games journalists that expect developers to create an ideal world with no social problems, it's not realistic, were not there yet. Women are still objectified, treated as a prize etc in the modern world, are developers expected to ignore that and avoid it because it might upset some people? No, it's called realism and pretending it doesn't exist or that were past that is going to slow down actual real change.
There's no 'objecified' women in the game though.
OB1, I agree.. thinking back to my playthru I can't see how North or Kara was objectified. North is beautiful, but so is the actress that plays her. She also kicks ass, and is certainly not a meek sub-character. Kara is strong main character that goes above and beyond to protect that little girl even after *spoiler* The strip club has both male and female android dancers. So I just dont get it. But then again I am not giving it a click either. Haha Would be ironic if the reviewers own choices caused the objectifying of women. Look in the mirror buddy
This is why quantic dreams created a masterpiece. Is she woman or android. Thoughts verse actions. You will never be rid of prejudice, its a simple human component. You can only love if you find it. But that may open doors people are so eagerly to shut. Spirituality.
All the reviewers who complain about the women being objectified must have missed the male strippers at the strip club. They were shaking their booties just as hard as the female strippers!
well, that's one way too ruin any credibility you have as a critic!
Seriously. Fuck you.
It's hard to take these reviews seriously. It's fine if you don't like a game, but a 3 out of 10? Really? That's what you give games are are borderline unplayable because of technical issues. It seems like many of the really low scores this game got have a politically correct slant, obviously not all, but it's definitely concerning.
Horrible review and agenda with this score.
Click bait review.
www.registerguard.com - Access Denied Wtf?
Well, clearly actual users by and large are enjoying the hell out of this game, so feel free to post your troll opinion.
It got a slating in the latest Edge magazine too, 5/10 I believe. Still, I'm looking forward to playing it, just got to complete God of War first.
You just need to know its the best QD game to date. If some reviewers are biased or hate DC or play SJW it's too bad.
Your mom collapses under the weight of her own hubris!
registerguard? fuk is dis?
"Speaking of noticeable, “Detroit” wants nothing to do with subtlety. At all. It takes almost no time at all before the game slams you with references to slavery. There’s a scene where the androids have to ride in the back of the bus, for crying out loud! If you ever, somehow, forget that this entire experience is meant to symbolize slavery, xenophobia, the Holocaust, the Underground Railroad, the civil rights movement of the 1960s for black Americans, don’t worry: Just wait about five minutes for the next in-your-face reminder." Yikes most people are hating on the review because of a woman comment...seems like this guy doesn't like the game because of its preaching.
Hey remember all the crap about Kara and Alice demo? Eurogamer was even suggesting you have to shake the controller in inappropriate way to have Todd get off Alice They are full of it I tell you.
Actually, people are hating it because it's NOT preaching. They say it's tackling sensitive matters with no depth or subtlelty. I, for one, don't think everything needs to be an essay or preachy in order to convey a message. Detroit is fine.
What storm, the optimist, this review? You have always one no name site that need clicks. The game scores 78 on Metacritics and 77,15 on Gamerankings so this "review." Is just what it is, just klickbate. I mean come on have you ever heard of Registerguard.com? I try to open the site and get this message: Registerguard.com acces denied errorcode 16 This request is blocked by the securityrules I think that clears it up. 🙄
I need some clicks what to do I know lets bait some fanbois with a lopsided mentally deficient 'review' ya that'll make me relevant.... lmao
You're saying the game is freaking broken giving it a 1.5. Garbage review, no clicks.
Absolutely ridiculous. I can understand that maybe Quantic Dreams games aren't everyone's cup of tea but a 1.5/5. I question whether you made it past the first mission
After finishing this game with three different endings I say it ranges from an 7-9 depending on how your choices play out but a frreaking 3? It’s bs
Ain't getting a click from me, which is clearly what they want. This is about as bad as Washington Posts review of Uncharted 4.
I have to disagree. This is the first game in a long time that at least on my initial playthrough due to the various choices and things that can happen gave me so many different emotions while playing, like you care so much about the characters and what happens to them and no game has ever truly managed to capture that human feeling the way this game did IMO. I personally thought this game was close to a masterpiece
Same here. It's been a long time since a game world and its characters affected me so much. I found myself getting emotional in many scenes, which doesn't happen often with me.
I can see the flood of poor little butthurt whinie children in the comment section who don't like that somebody's opinion on the internet is different from theirs awwww 😞. The poor little f*cks 😞😭. If only this one dude on the internet had the same opinion as everybody who likes the game ughughughugh 😢😭😭 28557;
deserves no lower than a 7
It collapses on top of all the heavy handed social justice garbage in the story.
it's not a 3/10 game, objectively. the classic david cage hater i suppose
[However, “Detroit” continues Quantic Dream’s terrible streak of treating women in its games like items meant to be objectified. Yet again, the playable female character will find herself in disturbing situations that verge on sexual assault and/or misogyny] Can't even create a female VG character that wears her hair down anymore without it being every kind of objective.
I'm not finished yet, halfway through, I'm really enjoying it so far. The atmosphere and setting are gorgeous.
I made shitty choices in the game got Kara killed I still enjoyed the game I also enjoyed Beyond Two Souls as well.
The link doesn't even work "blocked for security reasons"
