Heavy Rain

 

Heavy Rain is a game unlike any other, if it can even be called a game. It does so many unusual things and follows a narrative that is found in the likes of a film more so than any game, so it is unusual, to say the least. However, what it does do, it...

Truly enjoyable story from start to finish; great cast of characters; innovative uses of the Sixaxis controls; some incredibly intense gameplay segments; high replayability

Some control issues; some spotty voice acting; occasional clipping issue and glitch

Heavy Rain

Beautiful graphics, dramatic musical score, and great voice acting combined in superb production values; gripping plot with a unique style of storytelling that gives players an incredible level of character control

An incredibly beautiful and engaging interactive story, Heavy Rain is a rare testament of both quality and originality rarely seen in games. Well worth a look for every PlayStation 3 owner.
