reviewkitten's review of Heavy Rain

★★★★☆

“I played the demo version of Heavy Rain but will...”

Written on: 22/02/2010 by reviewkitten (295 reviews written)

I played the demo version of Heavy Rain but will update my review once I buy it (and buy it I will!).



The graphics for the game are stunning and atmospherically it drags you into a seemingly seedy and oppressive noir world. The demo allows you to play two seperate scenes with two different characters, the first a private eye and the second, an FBI agent who is equipped with some sopisticated gadgetry.



The premise of the game is to try and hunt down and solve the Origami killings and unlike many other computer games you control the story and the way it develops, much like a choose your ending book (although I fear there is no turn to page 6 then quickly turn back shouting "I had my finger on the page" when you realise your choice has resulted in death for your character). You make choices and face the consequences.



I really enjoyed playing the demo, however if you hate quicktime play then perhaps you might want to give it try first as it is mainly that. I'm looking forward to the full game being released and seeing just how my choices unfold.

Reviewkitten's Response to reviewkitten's Review

I've now been playing Heavy Rain since Saturday and am finding it difficult to put down! (My other half is relegated to the other room to watch TV as he wants to play it and doesn't want me spoiling it for him!)
<br/>
<br/>I love the change in game play and for the first time I really appreciate the Sixaxis controls, they really make you feel like part of the story at times. Combined with clever use of shaky thought options that make it more difficult to see your choices plus the little reality touches like starting up your car or making food; I'm loving this game and hope that more developers take this onboard and make more adventure choice games. So glad I own a PS3 ;)
