I liked Heavy Rain better. The only thing Beyond had over it was the acting. If Heavy Rain had the level of acting, this wouldn't even be a question.
I liked the story cause it was more grounded in reality. I don't have kids but I have a ton of nieces, and if they disappeared, I would do anything to get them back. That's the kind of thing running through my mind as I played the game. I almost lost it when Ethan was crying in the streets, screaming his son's name. I connected to it a lot better than the sci-fi script in Beyond.
And Heavy Rain had more gameplay and consequences for failing. And more choices and interactions.
I liked Heavy Rain alot more. Beyond I felt had too many inconsistencies with character development, and the finale of the game felt very rushed and cliche. Heavy Rain was alot more original IMO and the mystery i felt was well put together.
HR had its quirks, but i felt they added to the game, where as in Beyond they didn't. I really did not like Jodie as a character, and I feel the writer could not make up his mind what he wanted her to be.
