Detroit: Become Human is one of those games that keep you playing until you realise you should have gone to bed hours ago.
It’s not fast paced, it’s not action-packed and doesn’t have wild car chases and crazy shootouts. Instead, it has an engaging story that evolves depending on the individual player.
The game presents some incredibly hard choices, and how you deal with these choices can have a major impact on the course of the remaining story. This is known as the butterfly effect.
How long is Detroit: Become human?
The completion time depends on the effects from the choices you have made. For example, if you got 3 of the playable characters killed quickly in the game, then you are narrowed down to one story. This will remove up to a third of the game’s story, and reducing the completion time of the game.
Whilst the game does time you on your choices, I’m quite a patient gamer. I took as much time as allowed to really think about my choices and ensure they were the right ones. This allowed me to keep all playable characters alive, and as such took my time with completing the game.
I will try and keep this as spoiler free as possible, just giving you a breif run down of the story. The aim of my reviews is to ensure you can make an informed choice before buying a game. With that in mind I would never want to ruin a game for my readers.
Detroit: Become Human is set in a not so distant future, where humans control androids and treat them like slaves. You play as Markus (Jesse Wiliams), Kara (Valorie Curry) and Connor (Bryan Dechart).
The game also features Clancy Brown who plays Detective Hank Anderson a non-playable drunk, who’s miserable nature is somewhat charming.
Androids or human, slaves are only going to ever take so much before they snap and turn on their masters. Androids are no different. Except that they are made stronger, smarter and faster than us humans.
Androids have the ability to calculate success rates for certain actions or dialogues, making a fun little addition to the game.
The video below shows some footage of the Andriods calculating the sucsess of their actions.
