Yes there’s a couple of plot holes and a certain amount of scenes that feel a little more awkward, but the testimony is that Heavy Rain is a rare experience that can be enjoyed by a watching audience and not just the person with the control pad. It’s also one that you’ll certainly want to play through at least one more time just to see what you missed and perhaps reach a better outcome.

Debate will rage long and hard as to whether not Heavy Rain is a work of genius, or simply a case of the emperor’s new clothes and accusations that it is an extended cutscene with minimal interactivity will inevitably haunt it. It definitely treads a very thin line, balancing interactivity and spectacle

This sets up the most intriguing aspect of Heavy Rain. This is not some linear story where you occasionally hit the button; you are in full control over the fate of each character. You can choose not to kill the pitiful drug dealer if you want, but that may mean that the game ends with a dead child. Of course, not everything is that cut and dry, often times you’ll be asked to make small choices and then live with the consequences. Should you drink orange juice or a beer? Should you let your kid stay up all night watching TV or should he do his homework? Will you let others in or push them away? Will you do what it takes to save an innocent kid?

Quantic Dreams have managed to throw a curve ball into gaming, especially in this congested world of first and third person shooters. Heavy Rain is like a movie that gives almost total control to the player as you manage the outcomes and directions of all involved. Although some people may be put off my the mundane activities of Heavy Rain, it attempts something different and that whole pulp fiction feel to it only enhances the story and gameplay even more. What it comes down to is the amalgamation of video games and movies has come even closer and if you’re looking for a surreal gaming experience, than I strongly suggest you investigate Heavy Rain. Highly Recommended and different really sums this game up!

Heavy Rain is the Marmite of gaming, and one of which I hope gains enough respect for the developers to continue working their magic. I would typically recommend any fan of the adventure genre to make sure to pick up the game, but in all honesty I wish everyone to do so. For every person that hates this breath of fresh air for gaming, a dozen will love it. For me, Heavy Rain has been the highlight of the last ten years and a ground-breaking event in video games that I am glad to have experienced; a masterpiece of gaming.

Heavy Rain is an amazing title, flat out. The game does fantastic things with the PS3’s hardware, presenting a compelling title, both in gameplay, plot, graphics and audio. Even those that don’t like quick-time events can adjust the difficulty, increasing time allowed to accomplish each prompt and reduce the complexity of the button presses required. The game is just excellent to play and experience, and I’m certain that if one starts it with the knowledge that it’s not a game about action and experience levels, they’ll want to see the story all the way to the finish.

Heavy Rain isn’t just a masterpiece; it’s an ingenious step in the right direction. I’m terrified that it won’t do well on the sales charts, because this means gamers aren’t mature enough. It means the developers have grown up faster. I honestly hope this isn’t the case and I want nothing more than for Quantic Dream to be rewarded for this effort. If you’re not sure about this game, here’s a clue- if you’ve read this entire review and you actually enjoy reading (you know, books), you’ll likely adore this title

Like Indigo Prophecy before it, Heavy Rain is what you might call an imperfect masterpiece. While there’s nothing as patently ridiculous here as Indigo’s attack of the giant invisible inter-dimensional space fleas, Cage still likes to cull oddities, however small, into the narrative space, making some of the game just a little wonky at times. He also occasionally fails to affect the right emotive response in a scene, such as when Madison is forced at gunpoint to strip for a sleazy club owner

While a few flaws keep it from being a higher-rated game, the overall experience in Heavy Rain makes it one that you absolutely must play. It’s one of the most unique and well-crafted games this generation with an incredible story and some of the most realistic, sympathetic characters ever seen in a video game. If you’ve enjoyed past blends of gaming and movies, like Indigo Prophecy or Shenmue, you’ll love Heavy Rain – it takes that sub-genre to a whole new level of immersion with the in-game world and your interaction with it using an innovative control scheme that takes very little time to get used to and makes great use of the PS3‘s button layout and Sixaxis motion controls. Despite some rough edges, Heavy Rain is an unforgettable experience

Heavy Rain acts like a film in almost every way. That ability to change the character’s course of direction slightly is the only – albeit quite big – difference. Watching a robbery go down with detached movie-convention-predictability and suddenly realising you have to intervene can freeze you up like Paul Henry spotting a mustache on a lady. It adds the third dimension that makes this game a game. In any case, it’s an entertaining variation on screaming, “Don’t go in there!” at a flickering screen in the dark. Supported by a flawless soundtrack, knowing on some level that you’ll get to the end if only by accident, and that you’ll enjoy the ride regardless, Heavy Rain can hardly disappoint.

That’s effectively how I processed Heavy Rain. Mind-blowingly new? No, certainly not. But do all the disparate parts come together in a way that feels like pure entertainment? Absolutely. This is easily Quantic Dream’s most accomplished effort. They finally set the bar to an achievable level and, for the most part, delivered on that concept with a kind of quiet confidence that should hopefully set them on the path to becoming the truly groundbreaking developers I’ve always known they could be. Now they just have to get Bowie back for Heavy Rain 2: The Ziggy Stardust Murders.
