Heavy Rain

 

Everybody loves a good "Whodunnit?" and Heavy Rain is a classic example of the genre, the question is: who is the Origami Killer? That will be answered in the next few tense, dramatic and twisty hours when you play Heavy Rain, the game created by...

Very impressive emotional content where you truly care for characters, well designed QTEs when done well, very original

Its essentially a fancy point and click in the same class as the Broken Sword series but with bigger plot holes and no way out of the consequences of badly timed QTEs

Starts out with a lot of promise and progresses wonderfully though until just before the end where it falls over itself somewhat from plot holes unless you can get the right result.

Heavy Rain

 

Is Heavy Rain a movie, or a game? Developers Quantic Dream have presented us with quite a quandary.

Fantastic story, and a successful achievement as an interactive movie. Graphics are very impressive in certain scenes. Emotionally engaging. Some of the tenses moments I have experienced in a game. Replay value if you want to see all the different...

Some very bad voice acting. Realistic graphics can make some characters look strange. Sound, camera and graphical bugs. The story has a few major plot-holes. The early levels are a bit too slow, which may stop some players from getting into the game

A clever twist on gaming.

Heavy Rain Review (PS3)

 

With a long legacy of high quality titles named [blank] Rain such as Vampire Rain, Chocolate Rain, and Blood, er, Rayne, Heavy Rain has some pretty big shoes to fill. Joking aside, Heavy Rain is the first game in a while (not including Fahrenheit, a...

The fact that there are several different endings is neither here nor there, for what my opinions worth. They exist as proof that your input can affect the end result; however had they not existed, it wouldn't have turned my opinion around. Heavy Rain...

Heavy Rain Review

 

Heavy Rain is a hell of an experience. Its controversial control scheme actually works really well in allowing the fantastic story to dictate how events play out, and many of the game's scenes will keep you on the edge of your seat.

"Intense and awesome!"

 

Presentation: 10/10 The menus are excellent, some might find it a bit gloomy, but its contextual and beautiful. The game comes with two square papers to make your own origami and with instructions, a nice touch. The box art and manual are both good...

"Awesome"

 

Awesome game, really great plot that can branch any direction you choose. Recommended to anyone who prefers a story based game over action.

"Looks Promising"

 

I've been waiting for this game for a long time and I am looking forward to its release. It's a risky game for quanticdream to make, but if they pull it off and its anything like the game play footage they have shown and the way they have described it,...
