Heavy Rain

 

This deeply moving adventure adapts to your every action and is not to be missed.

Powerful and emotionally engaging narrative ; Story continually adapts to your actions ; Unique controls convey drama and tension ; Highly detailed characters and environments ; Stirring soundtrack

Plot holes and heavy-handed villains ; Technical issues break immersion ; Poor movement controls

Though it suffers from its share of plot and technical problems, Heavy Rain is nonetheless a bold and visionary step forward in the medium of interactive storytelling. Part adventure game and part psychological thriller, Heavy Rain is far from the...

Heavy Rain

 

Cav puts on a Trench Coat and let's himself get drawn into a world which is doused by Heavy Rain

Great graphics – Intriguing storyline – Believable characters – Great soundtrack – Tonnes of trophies for the achievement whores

Way too much pointless interactivity and button pressing – Any real need for nudity/sex scene? – Game locked up/glitched on more than one occasion at vital points of the game too – Voice acting was quite poor and unclear in places, making sub-titles a...

You're going to have to work for it.

Heavy Rain review

 

When a developer like Quantic Dream comes along and tries to forge new ground in the search for success in the realm of gaming, you have to pay attention, and give credit where it's due. In that respect, Heavy Rain is certainly an achievement, and...

Heavy Rain may be a gripping, interactive tale of despair and anguish, but crippling audio issues and a lack of actual gaming mean it's far from perfect.

Heavy Rain Playstation 3 Review

 

The first quarter of 2010 starts off with a bang with many AAA titles launched, amongst them, Quantic Dream's “interactive drama” Heavy Rain exclusively for the Playstation 3. With previous adventure games such as Omikron: The Nomad Soul and Fahrenheit...

Graphics, voice acting and motion capture are all done very well ; Plot is engaging and engrossing ; Background music captures the tension and supports the atmosphere well

Some graphical glitches present, texture pop-in ; Short game taking only 5 – 7 hours to complete ; Technical bugs (random freezing and crashing issues) mar the experience

Quantic Dreams should be commended for the direction they’ve taken this adventure game, with a focused story and strong plot whilst giving the player interactivity and freedom to shape their own experience. The graphics, character modeling and...

Heavy Rain Review

 

This "interactive film" hinges so much on your actions that it's impossible to know whether or not you made the "right" choices - a little like life, really.

The story. The characters. The art style.; Creative control scheme (not so much the cramped fingers); Moments of revelation; Finding a video game that made me cry. A lot

The first few hours are slow (stick with them); Sub-par voice acting; Frustrating female characters; Walking in circles

Heavy Rain

 

Fear is an easy -- dare I say cheap -- emotion that many games attempt to elicit from their players, with varying results. The emotion itself is fleeting, and the weight upon the outcome of the overall game is generally naught. Love, on the other hand,...

Superbly crafted story, believable characters, expertly evokes an emotional response from the player

Some may not be willing to accept the breaking of traditional gaming concepts

An emotionally engaging thrill-ride from start to finish, Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain is a superbly crafted interactive experience, told expertly through its stunning visuals and believable characters.

Heavy Rain

 

Developer Quantic Dreams have truly blurred the boundaries between video games and movies in their latest title, Heavy Rain, a psychological crime thriller for the PS3. At times, Heavy Rain plays like a normal adventure game, however certain segments...

Consumer review (cnet.com.au)

Heavy Rain- PS3

 

I expect more for my dollar and this game is really poor value. Here in Australia, its selling for $110, yet you can play it in a day. That is just really poor value for money in my mind. And any game creator that banks on replay value instead of...

Great plot, terrific visuals, cool story

No replay value and only 12 hours long
