After all the negative comments since it's reveal I'm surprised how well this has reviewed. Microsoft would kill for a 7 or 8 out 10 at the moment so assuming this sells well it will be another success for Sony first party.

Not interested in the game myself, but guess it simply boils down to Detroit actually being okay.
Eurogamer's review of Detroit is an odd one. Oli Welsh's hatred of David Cage is quite transparent throughout, with Oli seemingly reviewing the man himself as opposed to the actual game. It really is amateur hour, even by Eurogamer standards.

Definitely one I will check out once the price comes down to something approaching sensible in a sale. Looks pretty impressive from a technical and visual point-of-view, and I'm attracted to the overall themes. I just hope it isn't too preachy and unsubtle with its messaging. Yes, I'm cynical (with good reason, I believe), so I'll be hoping for some serious YT analysis of the game's story and underlying narratives in the next few weeks.
QD's games have been pretty bad, however I don't agree with the criticism of some that these types of games are simply 'bad'. Life is Strange and some other titles show that narratively focused games can be great. I would love to see what the likes of Dontnod could do on David Cage's budget.
I’m sorry, I was being juvenile. As per. To me it was a glorious throwback to the slasher movie age - the writing was so on point, each character felt different but painted in a hilariously broad stroke. And it was genuinely a bit scary /nohomo I’d buy a PS5 for a sequel.
