Explicit Gamer: Heavy Rain Demo First Impressions

For those that don't know, there is a demo of Heavy Rain available on the Playstation Network Store right now, but it's hidden.

Explicit Gamer: "All in all this demo has greatly increased my interest in Heavy Rain, and my willingness to spend $60 on it. I will almost certainly be picking this up when it comes out in a few weeks."

Demo was fun other than when it froze my PS3 as the detective got in his car to drive away from the crime scene.

I had a similar problem. I tried walking all the way past the car and the rain volume suddenly got really f***ing loud. Still a cool demo though.

Did anybody let the woman get beaten?

This is from another blog/article about the FBI agent part: "At least the game gives you an idea of what you should be doing, because as I went to open the door, he stopped it halfway and looked back at the body, so obviously I wasn’t done with my clues."

I love it how there's so many different ways to go about this game. One guy I read pissed off the prostitute and she told him to leave. My first time as the FBI agent I missed the muddy hill that leads up to the highway. I love how you have to live with the consequences you make.

I personally think Heavy Rain can go either way based on the demo. It could be a really fun, unique, and engrossing experience or it can fall short of the mark and just be a failed attempt at a new idea.

Either way it will be interesting to see how it turns out and I will probably end up buying it on release day just because I'm interested to see how the game turns out.

One thing is for certain, since this is just a story-driven game (that is basically the whole point of the game) I won't be reading about it much until I play it for myself at least once.
