Definitely more accurate than their ff13 review.

nix2864d ago

this game will average around 90%... points will be deducted for no multiplayer, no guns, no war theme etc...

and of course, not to forget Edge and its friends.

i tried the demo. it's a solid buy buy for me.

You know it's gonna happen!

I really liked the demo. It felt so futuristic/next gen. This game is a must buy if you have PS3 and want to play something very innovative for these times. It is more interactive than you would expect or what the review would want you to believe. There's a fight scene in the game and it was the most adrenaline pumping fighting mechanic I have ever scene. I love it.

bjornbear2863d ago

unique and bold new IP on a next gen console AND exclusive, and its getting 90+ scores =O i don't take reviews too seriously but this is simply surprising =D

day 1 before the reviews, day 1 after them =)

@ ankle-biters

aww look at them =( they are upset they can't get anything but shooters on their console of choice =( must get mighty boring if you ask me =) innovation in gaming FTW

(and that is INNOVATION in GAMING, not innovation in marketing like Natal or Arc)

I expected this game to be good but never expected such high scores! Must buy!

PopEmUp2863d ago

I just finished Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy the other day, damn that game sure is hooked. Now I'm really looking forward to Heavy rain :)

Bungie2863d ago

great score

3 more days till i get my hands on it :)

I hope that these scores reflect the idea that this game is new and of some different game play than the average shooter or platformer. This is a game where you explore a deeper relationship with the characters and since it is new, I hope people embrace it and give something else a try. If you like it then great, if not then don't buy another one like it.

commodore642863d ago

Solid, solid, solid score!

I just don't know if my budget will stretch.

bacon132863d ago

S**t son! Between HR and Bioshock 2, Feb is looking up for quality games. This game will be such a great departure from the cry babies and glitchers in MW2, can't wait.

cayal2863d ago

Demo was incredible. I am getting this for sure.

ico922863d ago

These guys have pretty high standards so yeah its a good score.

PostApocalyptic2863d ago (Edited 2863d ago )

I played the demo and I liked it a lot. I was skeptical on how good it would be since it seemed like a really slow paced game. I did like Indigo Prophecy which I gave an 8.5 rating. But Heavy Rain seems like it's going to be a bit higher. Much more in depth and very detailed.

Seems like it's going to be an 9.0 rated game from the looks at the early reviews. And I would agree since the demo was very immersive! Especially the FBI agent.

If you have already played the demo you might want to check out Phil's walkthrough. Be aware that Phil is a SMART ASS! He's not the most observant dude but he's very funny in his vids. You'll be surprised what he says about the demo at the end of the walkthrough since he has be known to VERY CRITICAL! (part 1) (part 2) (part 3) (part 4) (part 5)

They gave Dante's inferno an 80%. Yeah, they're really brutal on scores.... /s

Michael-Jackson2863d ago (Edited 2863d ago )

Inb4 Nogolis and his frienz to spin it.

88% is a great score.

You have PC game :-)

What does "You have PC game :-)" mean?

mcnablejr2863d ago

, got better reviews than heavy rain and isnt on the ps3 *laughs*

Obama2863d ago (Edited 2863d ago )

I know; It means something start with M and end with 2 is also on the pc. :)

Michael-Jackson2863d ago

Great score, I'm definitely buying this.

Corrwin2863d ago

8.8 is probably too high (but then I consider 6/10 good and anything above 9/10 to be a damned classic), but I have my Special Ed on preorder :D
