Quantic Dream’s latest game was well-received at launch and our review was pretty positive overall.

“Quantic Dream excels in bringing the entire world of Detroit: Become Human to life,” our reviewer wrote. “That’s not to say it doesn’t have some hiccups along the way, some of which will leave you questioning the decisions of the developers. It would have been nice to see a bit more depth on display for the mature themes of the game, however, what’s even more important is how the story remains fairly consistent throughout.”
