Weak

It's an "interactive" movie. Nothing more/less

If you're looking for a "game" with deeper than average storytelling and like the idea of a depressing 10 hour movie then this is for you!

To clarify, this is not a game, it's a movie that occasionally makes the player push a button or move a character to advance the next cut scene.

The story is deep and well acted but the entire game has a depressing tone and the main acting by Ellen Page is pretty one-note throughout.

I've played previous Quantum Dream games and both Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy were better. If this is the best "interactive movies" have to offer, the studio would be better off just making movies. This became a bore a few hours in once I realized there were no options outside of what the story had already decided. Sometimes you're given the illusion via options to do things but it's for show, nothing you do has an impact anywhere else. I did finish it to see if it got any better but it was entirely a letdown.

I probably would have enjoyed this more had the story been better. The premise is something that could have been wrapped up (and probably better) in a 90 minute movie.

You need to know what you are in store for if you rent this game. Very similar to Heavy Rain. It is not a first person shooter type game, but a game with a great story and really makes you feel part of the character's story and development.
