More like an interactive movie than a game. It covers the story of androids becoming self aware - becoming 'deviant', and fighting for their freedom. It tries to cover a subject that could be very interesting but ends up being very black and white. Voice acting is good, but a bit stilted. Parts of the story make little sense & it starts to really unravel in the last third of the game. Most action scenes rely on you pressing buttons within half a second. For a game that relies pretty much entirely on the dialogue, giving you ONE word to describe what your character might say is misleading and frustrating.

Some controls are quite innovative, getting you to actually make more relevant hand movements for things like opening door handles, but the camera controls are awful.
