I've played through Detroit: become Human twice now (two full playthroughs), and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I played two very different games:
- Game 1: Played full pacifist with Markus, Connor became deviant and friends with Hank, and Kara and Alice missed the bus and ended in the concentration camp.
- Game 2: Played full terrorist with Markus, Connor was a dick to Hank and stayed machine, and Kara and Alice made the bus and escaped to Canada with Luther.
So I got two wildly different endings, but I was disappointed by how similar the early and mid game is. Now I am struggling with the idea of either selling the game or playing through again. I looked up some Youtube videos of alternate endings, and it seems there are subtle endings in between the ones I got, which are very cool and unexpected.
The problem is: you can't just replay the latter chapters of the game, because the choices you make early on do affect the game (public opinion, relationship with Hank, who you meet as Kara). However, the gameplay is almost identical early and mid-game.
So what would you do? Is it worth slogging through the repetitive parts of the game to see the different endings? (I know you can just Youtube the different endings, but that is not the same as experiencing them for yourself, is it?) This "problem" is exacerbated by the fact that the game is full of these "turn on faucet" / "clean up junk" type of "minigames", which I didn't mind the first playthough but got very boring the second playthough.
Long story short: I think the game is brilliant, and the story and alternate endings are its strongest point. BUT it suffers from the fact that in order to see the different endings, you have to slog through the boring gameplay aspects.
What are your throughts?
