I finished Detroit and I must say, it is way below Heavy Rain for me.
To call the race aspect heavy handed is an understatement, it's constantly shoving it in your face and comparing android to slaves, to the point of it almost being funny. What isn't much fun however is the terrible writing all the way through and pay off that amounts to just about nothing.
Looking at the stats I realize I took a somewhat different route than most, but it was very forgettable, I can barely remember what happened to the different characters here a week after completing it. There is also in the beginning waaay too much busy work. I don't want to clean his apartment, or drive this cunt around in his wheelchair for 20 min. It does look great though. Ranges from looking great to jaw dropping with some particular chapters being amazing. All in all I did enjoy it, but it suffers from most of the standard Cage stuff. At times it really does hit what it is going for though, even if also heavy handed, the part near the end
but more often than not when they are trying to go for these things, it just feels like a cheap rip off of real life events but with androids copied in.
Another point of how inconsistent the game universe feels:
But in the end, I still enjoyed it. But man... It could be so much better
