Ever since that trailer known as "The Casting" I've been anticipating Heavy Rain. David Cage's promise to deliver an adult story with real relationships and a branching storyline with consequences for your actions had me intrigued from day one. Well the game was finally released, I just finished it, and I can only hope that the sequel doesn't take as long to come out. In Heavy Ra...

As one of the biggest PS3 exclusives to release to date, Heavy Rain was looking to set the bar for video game development, and provide one of the most unique and immersive video games to date. Well they say when it rains...it pours, and Heavy Rain has certainly lived up to the hype. Quantic Dream has definitely took some risks with this game, and by doing so has set the bar very high for the vi...

I want to start off by saying that I have been following the developement of Heavy Rain ever since the casting trailer was released in 2006. I had played Indigo Prophecy (Farenheit) from Quantic Dream and was really looking forward to what they would bring to the table next. Heavy Rain is a game like no other. You take the role of 4 different characters all with very different backgrounds...

I've just had about half an hour to let everything sink in about Heavy Rain. From day one, Heavy Rain has been a project in deep secrecy, which always wanted to lessen the gap between movies and videogames. It seemed to be a very expensive gamble in animation and motion capture, trying to get the 'Uncanny valley'. I never played Indigo Prophecy properly and I tried Omikron too late, I knew...

If you are reading this review you probably have already either played quantic dreams most recent interactive drama or have seen countless amount of trailers for this beautiful piece of art they force me to call a game.If you are the latter and you still struggle to find a decent reason to purchase this epic, I assure you Heavy Rain is probably one of the best if not the best way to waste 60 d...

I bought the game, and it actually sat around for a few days as i was somewhat busy, and was not sure what to expect from it but I wanted to give it a try. After starting the game, I hard a hard time putting the controller down. There is almost no point in the game where you are bored and think this is a good time to stop playing. The story is great, It connects on a emotional lever all thro...

Well no not really but there are similarities. I've been renting a lot of games off Gamefly seeing as how I've completely sheltered myself from online gaming and focusing more on single player aspects. Upon receiving Heavy Rain I loaded it up to see an intriguing interactive prologue to the main story. The game centers heavily around the character Ethan Mars and his journey to saving his...

Video games have always been viewed as a lesser form of entertainment. When most people think about video games, the first things that come to mind are jocks sitting round killing people with guns or kids and housewives playing tennis with a small white rectangle. Heavy Rain is here to try to change that opinion. There haven’t been many games that offer the rich character based storytelling...

I love adventure games. When most kids were growing up on Contra and Metroid, I was solving puzzles in Loom and Monkey Island. But a good adventure game is a difficult thing to make. I’m a sucker for stories. I’ve sat through droves of terrible titles just to find out what comes next in the story. At their root, adventure games oppose everything modern gaming has become. They’re long, plo...

It's not very often that a video game comes along that delivers something so unique, innovative and fresh that gamers can only help but take notice. French developer Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain is one such example. Written and directed by CEO David Cage, who has been at the forefront of lavishing as much attention to his game as possible, and rightfully so, the “interactive drama video game” is...

Step into an adult noir setting, step out of what you usually expect from a videogame. Developer Quantic Dream wanted to push for creating a game...that's actually more of a single-player "experience"; and it's safe to say they delivered on quite of those few fronts. As much promise as the game showed before release, one must ask: Does it deliver on all of its promises? To give a quick his...
