Yes, all androids ride in the back of the bus. They're also not allowed to use escalators?
The game has all these references to actual terrible things that happened to minorities throughout history, but next to no acknowledgement of the real life origins, if that makes sense? Androidphobia seems to exist in a vacuum, and it comes off like QD are using awful bits of history and human nature as plot devices rather than properly exploring the nature of prejudice, which is what the topic kind of begs for. They could have gone for a more straightforward detective story, but they chose something way more loaded and haven't handled it well at all.
I think there's more action in Detroit than Heavy Rain and Fahrenheit, but there are a couple of bits that are really slow towards the end. They're the bits that are trying to pack an emotional punch, and they clearly needed time for their inspirational orchestral music to build ;D
Edit: I think I'm explaining this badly, let me try again. They use things like riding on the back of the bus, wearing blue triangles, being dehumanised, even rounding up androids and putting them in camps, but don't use the words racism, Jews, Holocaust...they don't invoke the actual things that were the basis of these terrible things happening. One black character obliquely says 'my people were treated badly' at one point, but that was the only time it came up. Thusly making it feel like everything is used as a plot device rather than a comment on and exploration of prejudice throughout history.
