NextGN Review: Heavy Rain

NextGN writes: "Heavy Rain is definitely not for everyone. First of all it's rated Mature for two reasons: it's designed for the mature gamer, and it has tits, ass, blood, death and all that cool stuff. Besides, I just don't see young gamers (those MW2 fanatics) having the patience to sit through it."

We need more games like this.

Nambassa2330d ago (Edited 2330d ago )

Incredible score.
I've got the demo and I absolutely loved Shelby's part. It's just so unique and atmospheric, it actually gave me goosebumps. Cannot wait for this beast of a game!

Edit: Sorry for double post guys =/

fishd2330d ago

But unfortunatly I realy doubt if we are going to get more of these games,gaming is now all about multiplayer 'fun'.Fingding a Great singleplayer experience is going to become harder and harder :'(

ryuzu2330d ago

Indeed. In fact just casually playing through the demo for a few minutes had my wife asking when the game was released and disappointed we couldn't carry on with the investigations....

Now that is what we need more of - games that can keep the adults of the house happy and which you still want to play after an hour (unlike many Wii games...).

Your avatar. We know that is going to be one hell of a single player :) My most anticipate game of all time in The Last Guardian until Team ICO next game :)

PirateThom2330d ago

Honestly, I'm more likely to throw down cash for a good 6 hour single player game than a tacked on single player mode with limitless hours of multiplayer.

Multiplayer doesn't bring me any excitement, co-op is pretty fun and I'll jump in and out of multiplayer games, but none hold my excitement.

Kevin ButIer2330d ago

It only does AAA games with "tits, ass, blood, death and all that cool stuff"

Thanks NextGN <3

Indigo Prophecy was burden with the QTE system because I think they felt it would make it more of a "GAME". From the demo i saw they have grown and they really only use it for intense moments. I mean that fight with the guy that beats up the hooker was actually exciting and had me panicking to hit the right buttons. It was all contextual.. "oh hes punching me... counter"

IP was just watching a sequence and pressing buttons. Even without the "READY" moments.

Good job, the demo impressed me and solidified QD as pioneers of a new form of interactive story telling.

Plus theres tits (giggle)

As long as sony is still around, we will get them.

sikbeta2330d ago

Just Epic, as I said DC made a Masterpiece and redeemed himself

Saaking2330d ago

Excellent score. 14 more days to go.

Butt Shingles2330d ago

Interesting... This game only reviews multiplats and PS3 exclusives. So much for the name NextGN, doesnt really fit what they review.

baum2330d ago

How can anyone still trust reviews after threats of blackballing? This is not just for Sony games, but for all games in general (in fact, if anything the last incident with the french website only proves how rigged Halo, Mass Effect and Gears' reviews were; probably the same with Uncharted, GT5 and Gran Turismo).

My point is, scores are meaningless. Only logical arguments matter (especially ones that don't depend on taste), and even them take them with a grain of salt.

ThanatosDMC2330d ago (Edited 2330d ago )

Wait... there's a demo?! ::goes to PSN::

Update: No demo on PSN. Sad days.

CrimsonFox132330d ago

There is, but for now, you have to complete the Four Days Challenge thing and you'll get a code to download the demo. It'll be released publicly next Thursday.

It's really great. I loved both scenes they had. They were like foil characters, Shelby, the old-school cop, and Jayden, the new, high-tech FBI detective. I think completing the challenge is worth it, especially since the answers can be found on just about any Heavy Rain message board. :)

"Interesting... This game only reviews multiplats and PS3 exclusives. So much for the name NextGN, doesnt really fit what they review."

What other games are there? Multiplats - they're on 360/PC/PS3 etc. PS3 exclusives and um.... hmm what else? That's pretty much all games right there...

Oh wait! you must mean ..... PC exclusives - yeah sites do that these days, don't really cover PC exclusives that much since they don't draw the crowds they used to...

So that's pretty much everything covered; PS3 exclusives and multiplats covers every game released right now worth talking about.

Butt Shingles2330d ago (Edited 2330d ago )

You're either ignorant or stupid, because what I meant was Xbox 360 exclusives. And if you're saying that the Xbox has not one good title, than you're admitting stupidity in this case.

@PeterPan

Really? Thats your excuse? 2 pieces of DLC, Gears 2 and Fable 2? Thats a pretty hard reach.

ON TOPIC: I dont trust any review that doesnt come on/after the embargo date. Because with evidence of Sony blacklisting, on top of the fact that anyone that gets exclusive reviews no matter which system its on is in the pocket of someone, there is something really strange about a no-name site getting to break the embargo.

Im calling shenanigans on this review. Ill wait til Thursday and assess the legit reviews.

darkmurder2330d ago

Good score but who the hell gives 99? Just give it 100!

Definitely picking this game up day one. If it ends up being a crap game, who cares, the actress that played Madison is hot. A little video-game boobs can go a long way. :D

-Alpha2330d ago

A big fat 99/100, that's fantastic.

UltimateSin2330d ago

"If it ends up being a crap game"??!?! That is an unacceptable statement to be said along side the game.

I know you didn't say the game WILL be crap but still, the demo is great and the game is great, as proven by the review.

Sackdude2330d ago

Need money to buy this game.

"Heavy Rain has the best, and most photo-realistic, graphics to be seen on console to date. The amount of work Quantic Dream put into even the tiniest detail is just crazy. The thing that stands out the most is the character models; the definition in their complexion is unbelievable – you can see the pores in their skin, the acme scars, and every little crease and wrinkle. The character´s facial expressions are pin-point precise."

Excellent score.

I expect this game to be a critical hit.

40cal2330d ago

I would really love to see this game reach great levels of commercial success along with the critical. 1. Because we need more games like this, and 2. Because we need more games like this.

So this is without a doubt Day MFing One for me.

coolfool2330d ago

Couldn't help but laugh when I saw that. What are they? Cartoon violence scars!?! lol
