Nice story, unredictable ending..

Great jobs guys
Definitely a title unlike any other ... decisions are crucial in this game..
An excellent game! But once you're in the process of repeating certain stages for trophies, you realized the game is just one long interactive movie that you cannot skip, so it gets very slow and tedious. It is a great and beautiful game for the first playthrough.
Great game with unique game play and great story line
I"ll give 5 stars for this game..!!
this is really a new genere of game, so different and so exciting, I can´t stop playing....
One of the best game ever , all people must to have.

Great Story and UNIQUE Gameplay...you wony feel play a game but like watch a movie...very very very recommended
can not help but be impressed with this masterpiece of Sony, an intriguing story that binds you to each chapter, action just right.
Exclusive for PS3. I like gameplay this game.
Vale a pena. Um dos melhores!
If you love watching movie, playing game, this is your best answer!!
The game is very beautiful in graphics also has a very good story, a plot hefty fine and time consuming, the game has multiple endings what do you makes you stuck it to learn all final
Heavy Rain: Director's Cut (Greatest Hits) is the good game really
great game.... will be a classic in the gaming history. get it!
one of the best games that captured a lot of interest! a must have for mystery fans!
This games is mixed of adventure games and interactive movie. This is one of the unique game and it is only on ps3. The story and gameplay will get you involve like you in the middle of the game event.
also Director's Cut include the DLC taxi dermist
Heavy Rain might not be the game for everyone. But for those who love great story and innovative gameplay, and especially for Quantic Dreams fans who have played Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit before, this is the game for you
BUY BUY BUY
Heavy Rain's is the kind of game that is hard to see it around. It's an interactive movie / adventure game that has a unique presentation, gameplay and fantastic graphics and amazing sound score.
The gameplay is pretty much a movie where you can control a character's actions, changing the course of the story. The visuals are very impressive, with carefully chosen camera angles and realistic 3d models. The music is also great with a score that makes every single scene a lot more impacting.
This game is certainly a must have for every PS3 owner, specially if you enjoy adventure games.
Excellent story and game play!! Must buy!!
You should now by now that Heavy Rain is not a game per se, but more like an interactive movie.
But in my opinion, it's an unbelievably intense experience like no other. There are sequences that will make you think your heart is going to pound out of your chest!
I've got to admit, the ending left my with a bitter-sweet taste, but I think that's the point of the game.
Honestly, I believe that much like Metal Gear Solid 4, Valkyria Chronicles, Uncharted 2 and Journey, all PS3 users should have Heavy Rain in their video game library.
Captivating story that really sucks you in. One of the must have games!
It has all the Fahrenheit elements - Women have their shower, chase scene, mental image etc. I like that there's different possibilities and you wouldn't guess it, but it felt a bit too short.
This awesome game is a must play for all ps3 users.
The quality this game achieves daring to be that original is impressive. Fewer game makers have this courage and the willing to deliver us a masterpiece.
Heavy Rain is a must try for every PS3 owner. The directors cut comes with added new episode and goodies.
And yes, it is not a scripted game, you choose your own path and chose the ending. It is interesting to view all endings! Great game!
Heavy Rain is a great atmospheric suspense game, with great graphics taking advantage of PS3's advance hardware accelaration.
The Move Edition is also equally great. The move sensors works great. A must have game for all PS3 owners.....
Heavy Rain is like watching a movie that you can interact with. Your choices can influence what characters say and do, and it can have a huge impact on the end of the game. The story in this game is great and very well written. Every character almost feels like a main character because you feel like you know so much about them. The plot, characters, graphics, sound are all astounding a very deep. Some people might not like the gamplay of Heavy Rain because its sort of simplistic; however that said, I went into buying this game knowing what kind of game I was getting. There's no hidden secret that Heavy Rain is a point and click adventure with more gusto than other games in this genre. I'm giving Heavy Rain a 5/5 for being inovative and being far beyond what I expected when I purchased this game.
Great game, I just love this kind of games, let you decide your every moves and outcome. A game that will make you play more than just once, for different endings
This game will keep you on your toes. The move gameplay is amazingly enjoyable than just playing with a regular controller.
A must have.. A must try.. It will blow your mind..
Heavy Rain Directors cut is the best heavy rain release because it contains all the downloadable content(including Madison's extra story)released on the PSN, so if you have not played it yet this is the best value and collection of Heavy Rain
Such a good interactive thriller. Can't get a better deal than the directors cut. :)
If you are the real fan of Heavy Rain buy this one - lot of stuff and more behind the scene love it.
Heavy rain is a great addition for any ps3 gamer. The directors cut take it one step further. It was great playing this gem of a game with additional contents. Get it if you have not.
best interactive movie ever
Unique gaming experience with MOVE controllers. Beautiful graphics and breath taking actions. A must have game for Playstation gamer.
Great gameplay, great graphics, great stories. This is a must have game
Heavy Rain is not for everyone. It is a unique game; like a cinematic movie which you control the flow of the stories with your action and decision.
People who like God Of War or Dead Space won't like this game. No over the top action like GOW, or heart pounding aliens dismembering limbs in Dead Space but, your heart will pound because of the stories and the emotional journey in Heavy Rain.
A great game in my book. Definately a must buy !
Great game exclusive on PS3
This is the first game I played on my new PS3 system and it was a thoroughly entertaining experience! The story is gripping, the visuals are stunning, and the overall experience is plain amazing! Granted, it is not a game in the classical sense of the word, but more of an interactive movie, but still, it will keep you entertained and on your toes (as you never know when the next quick button sequence will come) for several hours! Just dive in and enjoy the ride!!!
Good and diferent experiece in gameplay.
A great first time experience. But unfortunately, the novelty wore off very quickly. I don't see myself playing this game again after finishing, but to anyone who haven't, you have to experience this at least once.
If you own PS3. This game is definitely must buy.
Also HR Move Ed include Taxidermist DLC on BD disc. So you don't have to connect to PSN to redeem code or download the DLC. But the Move features in this game is not good. The game is much better to play it with standard controller.
Good price and best game, love it
It's good to see games that aren't just kill every mob you see and save the world/princess etc
Very good game. It has in Portuguese language.
It's an addictive game! Very interactive and you feel like you're in the game!!! A must have!!!
one of the best game for ps3..
If you like watching movies, this game makes you enjoy more than just watching.
this game is like watching a movie but you as the director, the story and graphic was exellent too.
very good game
For those who love be a part of an epic movie. :)
Very cool and fun
nothing much to shout about.
The great ps3 exclusive...
Very nice game.
good game must buy :)
this is a good game :)
A game that plays like a movie. Unique in every aspect and fresh in terms of gameplay. A good game to have in every PS3 owner's collection
A "movie" you can't miss exclusively from PS3.With the MOVE feature embedded,it's truly a remarkable masterpiece.5stars.
I ordered it & didn't adopt for fast delivery but in under 2 weeks I already received the items I ordered. Excellent work!!
Very good game! Awesome graphics, strory and gameplay. You must have it!!!
This game compiles multiple life aspect around murder cases, from a reporter, a father, to crime detective. It's worth experiencing the whole storyline. Really recommended for PS3 owner.
This game is great, if you own a PS3, you must buy it :)
5 stars :)
I got this from Play Asia and the service was excellent as usual.
The game it self offers a real genre defining experience. I have been gaming from the early 90s and this is one of those rare defining moments in my gaming history. I am still going through the game. So far it is epic.
The graphics, controls and the concept are all top notch. If I have any complaints, it is the occasional camera angle issues that I experienced but it is a minute detail that I don't bother about.
10/10 from me for this experience. It really is a solid game that any PS3 owner can be proud of. I really hope that this game goes multi platform because this game should be experienced by all.
it takes some time to get accustomed to the controls but after that it's a great game try it with ps move controllers
I think David Cage and Quantic Dream have finally achieved what they were trying to do, but failed, with Indigo Prophecy. They have, in my opinion, crafted the first true "interactive novel" that maintains a high quality from start to finish. I definitely would like to see more games like this in the future.
This game was the first foray into a mature, adult-oriented title. First and foremost, I should say that Heavy Rain is very much a glorified quick time event (QTE) oriented title... however, Heavy Rain is more about the experience rather than the gameplay. That's not to say the gameplay is bad, it's actually immersive despite the fact all you're doing is pressing simple button prompts. There have been quite a few times where I had my heart pumping playing this game because the plot always keeps you on your toes.
There are a few negatives I have about the game though. It looks beautiful, but sometimes at the cost of low framerate and screen tear. This is only noticeable in handful of scenes. And secondly, despite the impressive motion capture, some movements and animations don't seem within the bounds of reality; it's here that the recently LA Noire wins and has improved upon.
Anyway, the game isn't for everyone but I'd recommend it to those who are interested.
Even with the controls that can a be a pain sometimes (like getting stuck in the crowd) this game is amazing. One of those that is hard to take a break to continue later. For me, it deserves 5/5
This game is exactly what the industry needs right now - a unique experience in games.
Played the first couple of chapters and fell in love with this game....
But a stupid game glitch and now I can't get passed the loading screen....even after going back and playing through the chapter before.
Game of the year material
FIVE STAR...Nuff said.
heavy rain give us new gaming experiences. must have for all PS3 owner, but please make sure you are over 18 before purchase.
Heavy rain's gameplay is truly unique and there aren't many games out there that plays like it. It's kind of like an interactive game. The outcome of the game as well as the ending also depends alot on the decisions made. A truly compelling and great game to play. Strongly recommend to all PS3 owners
Saw and played the demo of this game, wanted it so badly that i bought a new ps3 just to play this game
Great game but no replay value
"Heavy Rain" is a beautiful and unique game that proves to be the ultimate immersive experience in computing to date. If you own a PS3 and haven't played this title yet then you need to. If you don't own a PS3 then this is one of the games that it would be worth buying one for.
Your actions change the way the story unfolds. The scenes are remarkably crafted and can move you one moment and shock you another. Some scenes are beautiful, some are sad, and others are absolutely grim. The use of the PS3 buttons adds to the feeling of doing something easy or difficult and the swing of certain fight scenes keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Whilst not a standard RPG I'm sure most fans of the genre would appreciate the scope of this game. The way your actions can change the outcome of the story really makes you want to replay the game just to see what might have happened instead.
The only disappointment I had with the game was the couple of times it froze leaving me having to reboot the PS3. Whether this was due to the console or the game I do not know, but overall it did not detract from a truly ground-breaking, artistic, game. The graphics are some of the best I have ever seen on any console and even some high-end PC's.
Try this game. You might be moved, saddened, or even terrified, but one thing for sure is you will not be disappointed.
if you have PS3, if you love to see movie.
if you think your h=game doesn't exciting you
this is what you need.
It's one of the most unique games of all time! The game is pretty interesting and at the same time, relaxing. Graphics are Great! I really recommend this if you want to try out something different from the normal games eg. shooter, hack & slash,etc. genre.
I hope there would make more games like Heavy Rain!
An awesome game. The quality of interaction with the game and the graphics are amazing. Good choice for fun.
a must for ps3 owners, you won't be dissappointed.
The game has problems and not every scene works as intended due to graphical and acting limitations, but overall Heavy Rain is a moving and compelling experience that you need to try. I'd definitely recommend playing with the Move controller, too - not as immersive as Sony would like you to believe, but it's still great fun to waggle around!
One of the best plots and most creative gameplay I've come across for a long time. The only downsides of the game are some facial expressions and animation limitations, as well as the controls, that not always are as accurate or as comprehensible as one would expect.
Luckily it is much better than the PS2 game Fahrenheit. A good game with replay value. Must have for PS3 gamers!
Great plot, slow at first, but gets better as you progress.
Excellent concept and hopefully a breath of fresh air for gaming..
The story is engrossing and keeps your attention..
The graphics,,voice acting and scenery is outstanding..
The weather and lighting effects are first class..
There are many possible final outcomes based on the decisions you make and this adds to the replay value of the game.
You will certainly not be dissapointed if you buy this game..
In the day and age where every other game is a first person shooter, Heavy Rain comes to us with a fresh and original experience that is really unlike any other game on the market today. It is not perfect but its originality to me makes it a must have for any Playstation 3 owner.
This deeply moving adventure adapts to your every move & is not to be missed!! Powerful & emotionally engaging narrative. Story continuously adapts to your every action. Unique controls convey drama & tension. Highly details characters & environments. Soundtrack is outstanding.
Seem to have a few plot holes & villains can seem somewhat too heavy handed. Movement can be a pain sometimes.
HR make very good use the motion controller of the PS3. A very interesting thriller (if you can overlook some plot holes).
When it adds support for PS3 Move controller, i'll give it another try.
I always liked this game and the story itself is very interesting and u really can't stop playing :) so I would say that this is the best game with Assassin's Creed for me :)
Amazing game, great history ! A very deep enviroment where you get involved so deeply ! You should try it ! =)
it just lets you play again and again
This is the first game for me that has a story with a real impact. This is more of an interactive experience rather than a game in its traditional sense. Bear this in mind if you're looking into this title. However, for what it really is (interactive story telling) it is one of a kind! The story and acting are better than some movies out there.
Heavy rain is a great experience that really shows games can make you cry. It's a powerful and gripping story that used interactivity to draw you in... Although the gameplay itself is not terribly great, it works enough to allow you to move the story along.
This one is certainly not going to be a fan favorite among the "GIMME EXPLOSIONS" fellows, but if you're looking for a great story, compelling and engaging until the very end, Heavy Rain is one of a kind.
highly recommended! 10/10!
a good buy in PA too!
Boys and girls, this is the must! Forget about what genres of games you like, think of what kind of movies you like. If you're into criminal, thrillers and adventure - this interactive game/movie is for you. Amazingly, you decide what will happen next, you're guiding your heroes through the game, deciding for them, thinking and investigating for them! And what you decide tingles the main plot of this game/ movie.
I've bought it a month ago and been re-playing it for 4 times now. Unlike other games, this one gives you great replayability, you wanna know afer all what could have happened, if you had had spoke to the person in episode 5 =)
By the way - this game was created by the same team that made Farenheit (if you're from US you should know this game by a name of Indigo Prophecy).
This is a real treasure in your collection,an d it's a first game of this genre for PS3. Highly recommended.
Interactive story telling at it's best. Visuals are outstanding, and acting well commended.
Definitely a game to play.
The game plays out almost like a movie only you can control the story and control which characters live or die, I think it's a game that every gamer should play at least one because it's so ground breaking.
Pros: Everything about the game, too many to list. But the best things about the game:
Good replay value
Gory and for adults only(can be a con too)
Con: Controls can be a problem, some people may not enjoy the gameplay.
Screen tearing can be a problem sometimes, although its not that much.
5/5 A fantastic game.
very good game i gave it a 10 out of 10
Day by day the Video-Games market grows bigger and bigger. And, in result, we hardly see a game with a good story or interactiveness. Heavy Rain is able to deliver all aspects of a good game in just one package. And there are much more behind the scenes than you can actually see... Worth playing, worth buying!
This game is unlike anything you have played before. But more importantly, not only are the ideas news, but also, very well executed.
One of the best games on the PS3 ever. You wont fell tired of playing it over and over. A new experience that you need to feel!
Great Story. One of the few games that makes QTEs fun. Must buy for any PS3 lover.
must buy it
This game has one of the best stories I have ever encountered in a game. The gameplay may not be like a typical game, but the story and the branching stories make this game a must-play. The only thing keeping this from getting a perfect score is the fact it has no real replayability. There is a HUGE TWIST in this game and once you know it, you don't have any real motivation to play it again. You might play a scene or two to see how it progresses if you do something different, but that's it.
But besides that, it is great. Why are you still reading this review? Buy it already!
V Good game with an interesting new gaming style.
great replay value pay one way to finish then try another way to see what changes.
A new level for the games in which each decision defines the outcome of the game
Heavy rain sucks you in, and keeps you there for the duration of the adventure. You will probably only need one or two sittings to finish it, but its a memorable experence
Absolutely stunnig game. The level of realism and the possible interaction with game characters are unbelivable. Surely a must have game for all ps3 owners..
This game is so much more that just a point and click adventure. It is a real interactive masterpiece. By the end of the game you will really feel connected to all the characters and the choices you make feel so much more important. I could not recommend this game anymore.
Beat the game one time, you will be in raptures. Then play again and do things the way you like. After that, play game anover way. One story will grow in a few you own. Indeed unique game.
This game is a true masterpiece, an interesting story full of intrigue.
A game for those looking for a nice experience and a deep story
Very fresh and new, can't stop playing it !!!
HR is showing us a new way of living-gaming. And if you smart, you can look at your life through and understand how's it is accidental and small make great things happen. Creators are wide-open guys.
This was worth every dollar spent! Fantastic game!!
The control takes a bit getting use to but it's all very logical and clear. The graphics are really good, although there are a few weird glitches that'll happen along the way. It's a very short game, even though you're meant to play it many times it could take a bit longer to finish. The action scenes really keep you on the edge of your seat so that's good, but the exploration scenes could be a bit more complex. Overall, it's a pretty fun game and well worth buying.
this game is just like living.story, graphics, everything is great..even watching is great..it's just like a movie you're playing..thanks play-asia..
Awesome game !
This is very good game indeed. Combination of good graphics and unique game play. It's just that the storyline is too short. But nonetheless, it's worth the money.
This game is very special. Everyone should buy and play it. The game just like a great movie, but the ending of this game is in your control.
This game won't be for everyone. Think of Heavy Rain as a hybrid of the movie Saw colliding into the TV series CSI. There are moments that can be emotional or downright put-the-controller-down-and-walk-away-from-the-game disturbing. The game could have simply been called "Heavy". Yet for the right audience the game has the power to hold one's attention and draws the player in to the ultimate conclusion. If anyone played Quantic Dream's previous game Indigo Prophecy then this one will be quite familiar yet darker in subject matter.
The basic controls of manipulating the characters through the gameplay is very fluid and makes for an immersive experience. However, I am not a fan of Quicktime Events (QTE) and found that in heavy action sequences some of the button combinations took my attention away from what was unfolding on the screen story-wise. There were even some situations where the control schemes required a contortionist to execute. I eventually had to dial the difficulty level down a notch to successfully make the QTE work favorably. Also, certain camera angles while moving the character caused disorientation and botched results. The subway and apartment fire scenarios come to mind.
While overall the 4 characters the player gets to control through the course of the game were interesting, listening to them was not so much. There were times the voices sounded disjointed or even a completely different actor's voice was used for the same character. At times it took away from the immersion.
The set pieces and environments were outstanding. Locations are believable and the ambient sounds and effects are top notch. There's plenty of variety in locations too so the player shouldn't find things too repetitive or tedious. Except perhaps for the incessant rainfall,
Not to divulge any spoilers, I will only say that the big reveal of who the Origami Killer turns out to be is a huge disappointment as well as being ludicrous since the player controls that character for a good part of the game. It was a poor decision by Quantic Dream to arch the story plot in the direction they chose. In my opinion there was a better obvious choice of who the killer could have been and that's who should have been used. This flaw alone is what prevents the game from a perfect score from me. I believe there are 8 or 9 possible endings but I think the killer identity is unchanging for each one.
Other flaws include graphical glitches (a disappearing Madison in one scene at the Doc's house, missing katana sword in Jayden's ARI video clue playback), and dumb moments such as in the corner store where the store owner just sits there with a knocked out thief lying on his floor. Call the cops, dude! But those are just quibbles and don't really detract from the overall game. Get through a chapter, digest and ponder what has just transpired for a few moments, and then forge ahead to the next chapter.
Otherwise, on the whole, I can highly recommend Heavy Rain to a gameplayer who'd like to experience more mature themes and a different way of playing through a story. Buy it or rent it but definitely don't miss out on a thrilling adventure!
Playing heavy rain was like reading a very good mystery novel. Once you are indulged in it u can never put it down, u want to know what happens next. Kept me at the edge of my seat till the end. Looking forward for more gamed like this from this developer.
One of best games of 2010!
Realistic graphics and nearly prefect charecters movement! Plus very interesting story that dont let you take of the disc until game end!
Completely new style of gaming that should be experienced whether your a gamer or a movie lover. Prepare for an emotional rollercoaster.
This is different.
A first person roleplay, but without swords or guns.
The story is played out by different characters.
It's movie-like in its plot, but you get to control how the story unravels.
I thought I'd be bored by now, but no, this is keeping my interest.
might be a new generation of game or a new generation of movie. so why miss out? great for an easy weekend.
a fantastic interactive MOVIE. But not really a game. I suggest checking it out before you purchase as it isn't for everyone.
For those with patience will enjoy it immensely.
This game merged the best of both worlds (the gaming and movie world). It has an amazing storyline (better than a lot of psychological thrillers out there), captivating characters, intense scenes, fun gameplay, and lots of possibilities. It may start off a little slow (and I still loved it), but it's the purpose of the game. It's not meant to be an action shooter, the focus is on its powerful story and characters. And it's a wonderful experience, it got me hooked from beginning to end.
A wonderfully original game with a gripping storyline.
The opening few chapters are a little slow, and playing through them a second or third time can be tedious. The game soon picks up however and is enjoyable throughout.
A great addition for people who enjoy games with a strong narrative.
this game is unique! every action and decision have its consequences and it changes the story.. rly cool thing!
A brand-new game genre that is a cinematic like, including the story, visual and the feeling. Must-Have
Amazing game, simply awesome
I really like Heavy Rain. The story is solid, the graphics are impeccable and the control/button mashing aspect is great. I found the game to be slow at times due to all the video sequences, but I as a gamer I tend to enjoy the puzzles as much as the action. The notion that anything you do could completely change the outcome of the game was great; I will be playing it again and choosing different routes to see where they take me.
It's a must-have game, since it's gameplay is just incredible! The story is so good that you feel like watching a movie, and not playing a game... and for the same reason, it isn't as addictive as Assassin's Creed 2, for an example. Anyway, it's definately worth the price!!
One of the best and innovative game I have played so far, and the story is great too!
Good story with few small things that doesn't make sense.
Great atmosphere though.
this is one of the best titles this generation
breath talking graphics
this for sure a must own title
It has great story, good graphic but still few errors in the game that cause game froze.
After I recieved this game (about 2 weeks later than advertised!) I couldnt stop playing it. It is very addictive and you get sucked into the story straight away. I completed it withing 2/3 days and I havent played it since. Apparently, there are a lot of different endings, But since finding out who the Origami Killer is, and that doesnt change, I havent felt the need to play it again. Maybe in the future I'll go through it again and play the game differently for a different ending. It is just like an interactive movie and the depth is incredible. Recommended
Great Game, unique game, you should buy.
One of the best games I ever play. David Cage you are the best. I only wish that we have more games like that.
While this is not a perfect game, it does have the distinction of being one of the most unique gaming experiences I've had, and definitely has hands down the best looking characters and facial animations in a game to date.
Fantastic game. Very unique in its control system and the way the player interacts with the game. Great storytelling as well. Overall very worth while.
Um grande game!! Sensacional
Excellent game! the history is fantastic, is a interactive movie. Recomended
Just the way you move the character is quite sh***y, but great game :)
The control system is new, fully utilise PS3 control systems and graphic, the story line is not bad too.
excellent game, really a masterpiece for the PS3, lush graphics, storyline worthy of a Hollywood movie, wonderful interactivity where your decisions really make a difference ..... A GREAT INNOVATION; The Quantic Dream REALLY ARE OF CONGRATULATIONS.
It's like a collaboration between a movie and a game. Probably took some ideas out of Japanese's Eroge and such where you make choices and face consequences/rewards, but this game took that idea a few step forward, with making you carefully think about your choice instead of forcing you take choice because the they know the reward you want.
while you might face some minor bugs in the game, but that doesn't affect the gaming experiences at all.
Great, fantastically great game.
The game is about decision making of the characters in the game and whatever your decision will affect the games ending outcome. Overall its is very good.
Everything is good about this game... the graphics, sound...etc..
There is an unprecedented level of interaction here.
My only gripe is that while the controls are ok, the simplest action (i.e. walking) is too cumbersome, and the move detection controls don't feel as responsive as they should... otherwise this game deserves masterpiece status.
We have all wanted to know what it is like to play the lead of a movie. Well this game does just that throwing you into the lead roles of what I would call more of an interactive movie than a game.
Visually stunning, the game shows off the HD PS3 capabilities well. Controls are so simple that just about anyone could play.
My only complaint is about the length of the game. A little short for my liking however it has some replay value seeing what other directions might bring.
A great first attempt at a new genre and hopefully many more to come.
This game can be describe by one word "Thrill". The game play put a lot of emphasis on the tension of the character, you can feel the character emotional state, feel their hesitation, and feel their desire. The story was really great for the first play through, but after the first play through, it lose its touch, spoiled, so I strongly recommend that you do not read any of the spoiler if you want to enjoy the game. The graphic is excellent, it seem like quantic dream has figure out a great way to have alot of liquid based model act naturally. All in all it is a thrill to play the game. Careful with the heart!!!
Heavy Rain is no doubt one of the most different games around. While parts of the gaming industry are suffering backlash for overuse of QTEs, here comes Heavy Rain which is almost exclusively that as far as gameplay goes. Heavy Rain, however, does not suffer for it. It is the most story driven game released in years. It's gameplay seems to be merely a way for the player to direct the story, not something to be challenging for the player to master.
One of the best aspects of Heavy Rain is how it shows some possibilities of what games can do and be.
This game is one of the remarkable game on ps3. It dares to do different stuff rather than play it safe. And it turned out well.
Heavy Rain is a great piece of interactive cinema. You're tasked with solving the mystery of the Origami killer; a serial killer of children whose latest victim happens to be the son of one of the main characters.
The gameplay consists of following simple controller cues on screen whilst the action enfolds, and boy is the action great. Graphics are superb, voice acting is generally really good, and the story, whilst having significant plot holes, is a blast.
The only real complaint is the game is very short and very easy, even on the "hardest" difficulty setting. Be prepared to finish the game in around 6-8 hours the first time through. There are multiple endings to see (similar to Quantic Dream's previous title Fahrenheit), but that doesn't change the fact that you will see the bulk of the game in the same of a single intense gaming session. If the game's brevity doesn't concern you, then don't hesitate to get this excellent title.
The game starts slow but quickly you are living the characters life and suffering with them. And the control scheme is fantastic, it looks awful in the beginning, but it turns out to be incredible!!
It's a fantastic and unique game!
There is no doubt that this is a innovative game, that there is no similar experience on the market. On this note, it is easy to look over its flaws just because this is somewhat a new genre and it is understandable that even the creators aren't fully aware of the potentials and limits of the game.
Being more specific, the game is heavily focused on a story with multiple branches that dismiss the concept of "game over" and repetition. Because of this, the game sometimes is too forgiving and sometimes too harsh. You can fail a lot in some parts without affecting the outcome you desire and you can lose a character for failing on the wrong part.
The story also have holes and a good share of non-explanation.
Yet, as said, it is easy to really enjoy the game, even while noticing that something could click better, because if you're into this "interactive drama" thing, there is nowhere else to run.
Personally, I expect that this becomes a full genre and that lots and lots of games like this come out in the future.
A psychological thriller, from your actions depends the fate of characters in the game. Your actions determine the outcome of the game.
The game captures the first minutes and does not let go until the end.
Better to see once than hear a hundred times ...
The story is the main selling point in heavy rain, and its good. Depressive at some points happy at others. Characters are wonderful aswell, youa ctually feel for them when things go wrong (or right). The only gripe is one of the scenes that gives away the Origami killer. (I wont go into that though) Other wise if you looking for something you can't find anywhere else (Closest thing being Indigo Prophecy) then look no further!
If you have played Quantic Dream's last adventure game "Indigo Prophecy" or "Farenheit" as it was known in Europe, you would feel right at home w/ the control.
The game did a good job of making players feel like they are actually in that situation going thru the same emotion as the characters, the orchestral score is very epic and added another layer of depth.
For those who are getting the Jpn version, it has 2 audio tracks, Jpn and English, menu and text are in two languages as well, compared to the US version which has Eng, German, French, etc, but no Japanese. The Jpn dub was extremely well done like a Jpn dubbed hollywood movie, I had a lot of fun replaying the different scenarios and unlocking bonuses and trophies while listening to the game in a different language.
The mo-cap made all the characters in the game very life-like. This is one of the best looking and most unique games I have ever experienced, definitely not to be missed.
well worth the money spent! very intense gameplay, and will take you a while to play through all the different scenarios. sometimes even makes you think before making a decision, and you really get into the game. absorbing and engaging.
One of a kind. A truly tantalizing experience with a gripping story. Experience something unlike anything else. Pick up this game!!!!
This game truly is a wonder and a great experience.
The player really gets into the roles of the different characters as they go through their specific story lines. You will have to make specific choices along the way which will affect the outcome, should we take revenge on someone or let them get away with it. There is a range of choices and it's really interesting to see how they play out, some of them are more subtle than others. The trophies are delayed so that you won't instantly know that you made a choice until then. The character control may take some getting used to, from the resident evil school of control, but everything else is a joy. Good decent graphics only let down by small screen tears and frame dropping occasionally.
if you are still in wonder, download the demo from PSN, it has a 3 "chapters" from the game. That decided it for me and I ordered the game as quickly as possible.
I think this game is the definition of interactive movie. I loved the atmosphere of this game, and the story is pretty good as well. I found the action sequences very entertaining. It kind of reminded me of Shenmue.
definelity a master peace, depth story.
This is the best example of an interactive movie that I've ever seen. While the slow pace in the beginning may put off some people, and the control may be infuriating at first, I implore you to power through the first few hours. You will get used to the control and the story does pick up and you will be drawn into the story and the characters.
Give it a chance! Hopefully if enough people buy this game, more companies will focus on story over action.
Buy it if you have PS3.
Fantastic, thrilling adventure that sucks you in from the first moment till the last.
Highly recommended for anyone that likes this genre...
The only downside is that there's virtually no replayability for once you made the story happen your way, with your personality you won't want another run at the game...
Nevertheless a worthy purchase!
Heavy Rain is really a good game! It sets a new milestone for interactive game. I really love it!
Be playing a lot of unfortunate that this vesion sensor.
Heavy Rain is a mature game that adults will appreciate. You play from the perspective of 4 different people connected to a case of the origami killer.
Although the majority of the game is to press a button when prompted, those actions have heavy consequences and thinking before making a choice is important.
There are some dull scenes in the game where I thought the story was dragged on but for the most part it has a good story and a few twists and maybe a few plotholes as well.
Visually the characters and their expressions are top notch although the environments leave something to be desired. The music/score is excellent, which makes those tense moments race that heart rate abit more.
Overall a good game for the ps3, definitely one to pick up for mature gamers.
It's Like watching some good movies but we managed it.
Really gripping story, and amazing graphics. Enjoy playing most missions in the game, the first few missions are quite slow (tutorial) but I didn't mind.
The game manages to do what it set out to do in an amazingly successful manner. A must have for all gamers.
I am sure no one will like the opening. but the game play is awesome. sure everyone will like it.
You can't miss this game. I know I couldn't. They just don't make many of them nowadays.
this game is very unique and has excellent visual n story. A must buy for ps3 owner!
Thrilling, Chilling, Amazing, Defying, Delightful. Heavy Rain is one of 2010's GOTYs for SURE!. BUY IT NOW, People! Really Worthy!
very new experience.. its a movie in which you can control the ending.. really really intense and keeps you guessing the whole time.. the Origami Killer is the last person that you will suspect im sure hehe.. the length of the whole game is not that long, however you may want to play it over because it has 4 different endings.. very good!
Who care who is origami killer. The more important issue is if you enjoy the gameplay or not? A very unusual and unique gameplay. A movie in which the storyline changes depending on your decisions on which button you choose. I remember in one of the scene where you play the FBI agent and your police partner was under threat and your decison on if to shoot the guy who is pointing the gun to him will make the story goes unexpectedly in different direction. The fact is that you are not just watching the movie but you are involved in the whole story and it gives you a replay value as there is different ways of story progresses and ends.
It's truly a great game and masterpiece. Anyone who owns PS3 definately should buy this game. A whole lot of different gameplay experience with combined movie effect.
With its unique and innovative way of controlling the game, Heavy Rain is without a doubt the most exciting game you'll be playing on your PS3 this year!
Definitely one of the best games to have come out for the PS3. Period.
WOW, what a great looking game, feels like you are a director in a movie. Great story line also makes you feel very emotional, as if you are really there.
Well Done Quantum Dreams!
Great and unique game play. The story is amazing as well so do get it if you have a ps3!
For anyone who enjoys a good immersive story, Heavy Rain is for you. Using QTE to allow the player to be involved in the story teling, you will be driven to know the ending, who is the Origami killer, then later what are the other endings. I enjoyed the game so much I platted it. :) The best thing about the Asian version is it is a mirror of the US version (not like the Japanese version) and is cheaper in price.
Great Game with great script, if you are a PS3 User, you must try this game, definitely will not regret for purchase this game!!!
I'd say this is very unusual gameplay presentation with movie like effects. All what you need to do is to sit back and enjoy the movie like gameplay with couples of buttons to press. Wait! whatever you press on a given choices will make the story goes in unexpected directions. It's not just the movie per se but it seems that you are able to control how the story goes and ends. Lovely and amazing graphic which utilises the technology and power of ps3 brings the gameplay to life like movie. What makes it so unique from movie in general is that you are still in control. You decision will lead to how the story progresses. Wow! a completely amazing experience.
But a few bugs and places that you can not skip the scene, but the history is fantastic and sometimes you feel in the person in the action situation.
In fact is a movie that you will interact. Very nice.
"Why should I buy Heavy Rain?" you ask yourself. The answer to that was best put by Adam Sessler editor of G4: "If you care anything about videogames at all you must play Heavy Rain". This game and, I do not put this lightly, is a masterpiece of gaming. Quantic Dreams have not created a game where everything is artificial, they've crafted a game where the characters are brimming with life. Right from the start Heavy Rain is like the very best of what thriller, detective and mystery books and movies have to offer, this game will grip you. This game is for the hardcore gamers and even the non-gamers out there, if you're looking for a mature, engaging and interesting game then look no further.
This is probably the hardest part to talk about, whatever I say plot-related will take some of the surprise out of this amazing story, so I'll keep it vague. You'll play the role of many characters but Ethan Mars is the main protagonist. He's a normal guy who works as an architect, he's got a wife, kids and a nice house. Soon into the game Heavy Rain sets it's dark and gritty theme, where Ethan is drawn into the world of the Origami Killer: a serial killer who leaves distinct and mysterious "calling cards" at the scene of every murder. It soon becomes a race against time for all those involved, the question is: who is the Origami Killer?
The game is predominantly made up of exploration and interaction. Before I mentioned the characters were brimming with life and they are, you are the characters, from the mundane normality of everyday life such as setting the table and taking a shower to the emotional extremes where your characters will break down, bleed and maybe even die, you'll be controlling it.
This is the best time to mention the unique controls of Heavy Rain, most of it is predominantly quick time events (for those not in the know: quick time events are where games prompt you to press a series of buttons to succeed) for those gamers who haven't died from shock from this bit of info, it's not as bad as it sounds. Yes, Heavy Rain is frustrating at times because of the QTE events but in a good way, in other games where you fail it's game over and you get to replay that part, if you fail in Heavy Rain you deal with the consequences because that's life. Heavy Rain is the definition of art imitating life, if you aren't fast enough to react you'll get hurt and if you don't think on your feet there are major ramifications.
Another thing to praise about this game is that it actually has real moral choices were you will be conflicted about what options to choose, Heavy Rain does not do the clear cut "moral choices" from most games where you know what's right and what's wrong. If you want replayability it's worth playing the game through again because you won't discover all the plot details, see every scenario, unlock all of the bonus content or even get all of the trophies first time through. There's also DLC (downloadable content) on the horizon which takes the form of episodic chapters which you can play through so you'll be playing Heavy Rain months later.
If I were to nitpick I'd say that sometimes when you have a lot of graphic intensive things going on on-screen you will see a reduction in quality, but honestly this is one of the slickest looking games I've ever seen. When your randomly exploring the detail and beauty of the game its awesome, and the cut scenes are even more detailed, they're sharp, they're lifelike and they're lovely to look at. In terms of the graphical quality definitely up there with the likes of Naughty Dog's Uncharted so you can't really go wrong.
Perfect game soundtrack; an emphatic and dramatic selection of music that fits all of the scenes perfectly. Yes it has the edgy killer type music, but it also has heroic themes, pulse-pounding action music and even club music in there.
In summary Heavy Rain is a diamond in a sea of FPS/TPS shooters. Quantic Dream opted to do something different and head in a different direction and it pays off, it's an epic and satisfying game experience that proves games can be an art form and can be mature. This game has characters you actually care about. Trust me on this, when your characters in danger you'll be celebrating when they evade that knife or pull off that jump. If you haven't already bought it all I can say is at least try it, it'll surprise you.
A new genre of game - interactive drama. Graphic is good but there wont be replay value once you've seen all the scenario.
Engaging story and awesome gameplay.
Graphics,storyline,gameplay are so so great...
This is a must-have PS3 exclusive. Simply superb!
Heavy Rain have great graphics and gameplays.
This is the only version that have Japanese VA.
A must have for PS3 users.
If you're a PS3 owner, no matter what your gaming preferences, you would most likely find this game a gem.
Despite the initial getting used to the "sort of" poor movement controls, and the slow start, it builds up to a great involving story.
It's really worth it.
If you own a PS3 then you must buy this one. If you don't own a PS3 then buy on and then get this game. Its that good.
An unparalleled experience!
Absolutely no regrets!
A great buy!
a really intense cinematic game .. ! really liked it .. ! but i felt the game was a lil short for my liking. but anyways .. ! the game has many strong points compared to few weak ones. Overall good game !
This is one of the very few games I've played that has made me care about my characters actions. I more than once openly cringed at something I had to do.
It starts off a bit slow, and that gets a bit annoying when you do second play throughs, but once it gets in to the action, it's great!
I highly reccommend this game, just because it's so different and has A LOT of replay value.
Never before has a video game make me cringe, feel fear, almost tear up and care so much for the characters. This sophomore effort from Quantic Dream is destined to be a rule-changer for console games, one that will herald the start of new era of cinematic gameplay. With four playable characters, an immersive story, 22 different endings and multiple choices and options that affect the flow of the game, there's no reason why PS3 owner won't pick up this game.
unique superp experience
a A++++ ps3 exclusive
dont hasitate buy it and enjoy it
This game's story sucks you in and will leave you wanting to continue playing it just to see what happens. Love it.
Playing this game is like watching a movie, except that you control the cast! It feels amazing and the story is so suspenseful that you WILL want to play it again just to see what would have happened had you made different decisions
Its an awesome game with brilliant story line and the game also has english language. Its a must have for Sony PlayStaion 3
A breakthrough of the old point and click games, great interactivity with the scenarios and graphics of the first line. Heavy Rain takes entertainment to a new level.
iam playing since 6hours its fantastic!!!!
Really new experience in gameplay and story telling.
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.
This version include Russian language?! Anybody know?!
The Japanese version has full English voice and subtitles.
Definitely one of the best games of 2010!
