Not really, The game is heavily relied upon choices, it is a point and click adventure, but your choices impact in story development.

Lemme get this straight, a PS4 game flops on GS and lems are still having a meltdown?

😂 Jesus Christ!

It's a habbit now. They have taken so many Ls, they can't tell when they have won.

I'm pretty sure Crackdown 3 will save the day. Who am I'm kidding, it's all they have left and that game is gonna come crashing down as there last savior fails XD

I think i know why it got delayed.

It will have a Halo 6 demo. That's the only thing that helped sell the 1st game.

I don't like David Cage "games" as much as the next guy, but, come on, guys. 7/10 isn't too bad.

7 means Aight.

Ouch, this flop must hurt for the cows.

I mean, the cows were certain that God of War, Detroit, Spiderman, and something else (Death Stranding?) would secure the PS4's dominance this year.

So far, only God of War hit its mark, and that's only in second place for action games this year.

Whoever decided to start using the word toxic as something to describe a person should be smacked to the head IMO.

7 our of 10 is still a good score. May wait for a price drop to try it out. I did like heavy rain so I might like this. Not every game is going to be a 9 out of 10 and you will find some gems that weren’t reviewed so well.

I'm more than half way done with the game. I'm really enjoying it. But I always enjoy these kind of games. I would grade it in the 80-85 range which isn't too far from Metacritic. A 7 is a good score anyways. I'm not sure why people are calling it a flop.

As I said, if you are hyped for this I hope it is better than sex for you. But that is not gameplay I want to engage in. I just did that to my kitchen yesterday!! I'll take State of Decay 2 anyday over this. #toeachtheirown

SW is a joke these days. Was there even a hype thread for this? What was the agreed/voted hype? How can it flop if there wasn't? So sad to see SW just become a place where gifs are what is used rather than rational discussion.

Played the demo, nothing too interesting.

It's better than Telltale games, but that doesn't take a lot.

I am however in anticipation of unintentional comedy Cage's game never fail to deliver.

It's because most of the resources were put into rendering the faces. The rest of the game just doesn't look as good as the faces.

which is crazy when you think of the devs of games like Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War were able to pull off in game.

I guess not being first party, they weren't given access to the holy, "To the metal" PS4 development software.

Yeah, God of War set the bar graphically, but even then, Detroit's faces are better than anything I've seen so I could only imagine what Detroit could have looked like if given all the tools.

Not true. Watch the DF analysis, the blurriness of the game is intentional and down to the type of AA used. They are going for a very cinematic filmic look unlike most games out there and they chose to use a very agressive Temporal AA to achieve that virtual camera look within a game feel and look. They could have made everything crisp and sharp but chose not to do so. It’s why even when you run the game at Checkerboard 4K on a Pro it still doesn’t look as sharp as God of War or Horizon. The camera within the game goes in and out of focus along with the crazy post-processing and heavy AA use. Everything in the game has a soft edge to it as a result of this and I think it suits the tone of the game well.

I think it's probably one of those games which divides opinion. Middling meta-scores because you either love it or hate it.

I've just recently been listening to Isaac Asimov's Robot series and loved Caves of Steel, the book DBH seems to be an homage to. I'd probably take a closer look if this was on sale on PC (because I'm cheap like that :P).

Watch the DF video and educate yourselves. I can't help it if you guys don't understand the technical talk. I'm a long time PC gamer and work in a technical field so this stuff is second nature to me so I thought I was educating him but the clown thinks I'm "shilling" lol.

Start watching from here and DF explains the look for you guys....

But sure me and DF are "shilling" and trying to cover up for a blurry mess of a game :/

Which is technically not true. The blurriness has nothing to do with resources and is a conscious decision made by the devs. DF clearly explains the reason why this was done but instead you called me a "shill" for trying to educate you guys on the matter.

Maybe you're sleepy or something but nowhere in my original post that you quoted do I debate the blurriness of the game. Why you keep bringing up the fact it's blurry is baffling to say the least.

I'm educating the poster I quoted on the reason for the blurriness not trying to debate whether it's blurry or not. He claims the blurriness is due to resources and I correct him and explain that it has nothing to do with resources and is a conscious decision by the devs to get a more cinematic look to the game. The devs did it for the same reason some devs use film grain or chromatic aberration. Techniques that make games look more blurry but achieve a certain look and feel to a game. Whether you find them visually appealing or not isn't the question here. I personally would prefer if they toned down the post-processing and TAA but I can see why they would want to use them for artistic reasons.

It obviously is a blurry game, I don't know what point you're trying to prove. Maybe you should go take a nap, you're arguing for the sake of arguing right now. At no point in this thread has the blurriness of Detroit been in question.
