It's coming never because it's a PS3 exclusive.

Edit: You can disagree all day long, Xbox fanboys. It's not going to magically appear on your console if I hit 100 disagrees.

It appears as though European sites are getting first cracks at the reviews, as there is an embargo on reviews that is up Feb 11th. Seeing as the developer is French, I can see why they're getting their reviews out first. I'll be interested in seeing stateside reviews and if they match up. Different cultures, different tastes.

I LOVED Indigo Prophecy, and I'm getting super impatient waiting for this game.

Huge lols at anyone who actually thinks 8/10 is a bad review. You demented fools have sad perception of reality.

The first reviews are clearly biased for this game is French and mostly only french sites have reviewed it... in exclusive.

Lets wait for the real ones to see how much is Heavy Rain worth.

@ aquanox.

I don't know why people are disagreeing, it's true.
All of the reviews I have seen so far have been from France.

We have seen some solid scores for HR from their fellow frenchmen.
Is it patriotism?
Who knows.

In the end, reputable websites from around the world will provide additional meaningful consensus.

About time a decent Review.
Bungie  +   1918d ago
there's always Bioshock 2 for February

still think HR deserve 8.3 at least
OmarJA-N4G  +   1918d ago
Replaying to yourself?

Another flop for the PS3 first MAG now this chic flick.

Haven't really heard of the site
But a pretty solid score.

Actually I'm a little surprised, but not upset. HR is not exactly traditional so I can understand if people don't connect with the game as much as the next guy.

But regardless it's a solid score.

"Contrary to promises, the phases of QTE are still extremely numerous and their repetition is no shortage of annoying. The sequences of travel and research are only slightly less painful. The will of David Cage make the player feel the effort made by his virtual avatar is commendable, but its implementation does not always convincing. The controls are extremely rigid and the mere fact of having to hold R2 to make the hero walk (then guides you with the left stick, yes, as in a game of cars) is enough to disgust many players. "

So the main complaint seems to be control adjustment annoyances and QTE being abundant. Fair enough-- again, non-traditional game, but it seems this guy's experience was hurt with it.

And in the end that's all HR needs and aims to do: offer an experience.

With subtle things like the trophy notifications turned off it's clear that Cage is really attempting to keep the player immersed and it seems like he has mostly succeeded.

With that said I'm still skipping out on the game for the time being due to cost and time. I think I'll get TLG before this though-- I am looking for that one unique single player story and I'm far more interested in TLG.

I actually remember other games doing that same walking thing and it was annoying. I can't really remember what game and if it was gamebreaking.

All the other reviews I saw were good, I thought this would be a hit or miss but the early reviews were all positive.
Xi  +   1918d ago
da truth.
indigo prophecy/Fahrenheit by the same develoepr used that control scheme. It's very similar to Heavy Rain.

I wouldn't call either gamebreaking, they're both very similar to shenmue 2, albeit less action oriented and more thriller driven.

bjornbear  +   1918d ago
all the french siteS? they get an earlier embargo lift date or something?

fair score =) this game is an 8-9.5 easy
ZombieRollz  +   1918d ago
Honestly, this is a brand new GENRE they are trying to define. Some people just won't like it and some people will love the new path it is taking games.

Bots, love it or hate it, this game will bring forth a future of new gaming.

"The controls are extremely rigid and the mere fact of having to hold R2 to make the hero walk (then guides you with the left stick, yes, as in a game of cars) is enough to disgust many players."

You know, we have a magical game called Shenmue and if I remember correctly, they used right trigger (equivalent to the PS3's R2) to move and control the character which by far was one of the most interesting yet innovative ways to control a character. Disgusted? None of the reviews I've seen complained about that.

"Contrary to promises, the phases of QTE are still extremely numerous and their repetition is no shortage of annoying."

Didn't another review from JVN stated: "In this regard, it would be unfortunate (and incorrect) to summarize the gameplay of the game to a succession of QTE "

Looks like we've got mixed reviews in the bag. They're either loving it or hating it but since they're critics, they're not supposed to be judging the game to their preferences.

-Go Figure!

I'm excited for this game!!!

But.. Why is every review for it coming from France and require a translation? Hrmmm..

Did France get an early release or something?
