Tortoises may look a lot like turtles, but if you throw one in the sea it’s not going to have a fun swim.
Likewise, while French studio Quantic Dream and writer-director David Cage have fulfilled their ambition of making a cinema-like story in game form, you may not enjoy playing Detroit: Become Human as much as you might have enjoyed watching it.
The game puts you in the shoes of three android characters, whose stories are inextricably intertwined: Connor, a CyberLife deviant-hunter (in the game, deviants are androids who no longer obey human commands) who buddies up with the perpetually on-a-bender and overtly-prejudiced Hank; Kara, an AX400 housekeeper who goes deviant to protect her charge Alice from her abusive father (and your master); and Markus, assistant and adopted son of a noted painter who is wrongfully arrested and thrown away by the police and emerges the leader of a new civil rights movement.
Despite the strong opening mission, the chapters quickly degenerate in terms of both interesting missions and writing quality. Of course, the extent of this depends, again, on the character and the path you’re on. In fact, you may not notice any real discrepancies until you play multiple times, which brings us to another problem: part of the appeal of games with a “branching story” is their replay value, and this game simply does not have enough of that. While the story will change for you, it is more the effort of making it change that is the issue. Some levels are just so drawn out and boring that it is honestly a more attractive option just to look up the decision online than make it yourself. This is a huge problem with Markus’ narrative.
You can choose to be peaceful or to be violent, to forgive when you could take revenge, to subvert human stereotypes about deviants entirely or to allow them to come true. All of your choices distill into public opinion of your cause, and if it’s high enough, you might just come out of this long night with hopes for co-existence. Do the limbo, however, and you’ll find everyone around you more aggressive, more cruel, and end up with some very, very heartbreaking endings.
Detroit‘s scenes can play out with all manner of explosive confrontation, fists flying and guns blazing, but how these are prompted is more about the decisions you make, narratively, than your reaction time with the X button.
The gameplay is in part reminiscent of the point and clicks adventures of old like The Secret of Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, of Kings' Quest. Instead of pointing and clicking, most of the time you'll walk up top your target, and you'll execute dedicated control inputs to interact.
The truth is, video games are still a very limited medium for something as variegated and complex as the issues of social justice, and given that they have to balance plot and playability, I’d say Quantic Dream has managed to pull off something that entertains and makes you think at the same time. Every choice has its consequence, and the game delights in making you either enjoy or suffer them. Choose well, young padawan.
