In two weeks, Gamers the world over will finally get a chance to experience Quantic Dream's latest effort: Heavy Rain. Reviews have already begun trickling in, and now PlayStation: The Official Magazine has put out its verdict.
You were saying? Bu, bu, but Troll Police this iz a Playstation magazine! Gameinformer 9.5
Troll Police, do you equate the quality of a game to a review score or the review itself? To gamers, what a journalist writes about a game and his/her experiences is MUCH more important than the number he/she assigns to a game at the end. So I don't understand why you throw around numbers like it means anythg. GameInformer gave Bad Company 2 a 9.5, but I pre-ordered the game after the 1st day of playing the beta. Same way I don't care if Heavy Rain gets a 10, 11, or a 12 from every gaming critic known to man. I've already decided not to buy it, because I'm not interested in genre. Main Point: People who like the genre will buy Heavy Rain, people who DON'T like the genre, won't buy Heavy Rain so you throwing numbers around won't make a believer out of many people(me included). GTA4 got high scores as well and we all know what the general gaming community thinks of that. (Btw, PTOM gave the (inferior) PS3 version of Bayonetta a 9/10, take that however u like) "Yawn at predictable trolling." All I did was respond to Troll Police's comment. Thats why the reply button exists.
Yawn at predictable trolling.
wow... this game is gonna be great! hate as much as you want but it's going to shake the foundation of gaming industry. just like Demon's Souls, UC2 n recently MAG. MAG has set the foundation for the future MP games whether u like it or not. bubbles for everyone! q:
Everything you said is true but let me guess, a game is only good to you if it sells 5 million copies, right?
@deadreckoning I didn't mean you. 'Troll Police' was trolling yet again.
how real and authentic videogames can be this is a game that gonna raise the production values of a game this game is a day 1 buy
WKC and MAG, its nice to see that the review crews are not Anti-Sony. Looks like this is going to be a AAA game as far as review scores go. I can't wait to get this game. I know its an "interactive movie", but that appeals to me. Cant wait, cant wait.
lol, they just didn't want to be blacklisted
"So make no mistake, Heavy Rain is indeed a game. But it is a game like none other." And that's why I own a PS3. The best in gaming.
This game is perhaps my most anticipated of the year after gt5 of course. It just seems so different and if pulled off correctly (which it seems to be) then it will be absolutely amazing!
I forgot to ask you this. I think I was going to ask you and Pirathom since you two are the biggest GT nuts after me (LOL). What wheel are you getting or what wheel do you recommend? I know it's off-topic, but I'm gearing up for it and this is just one of those games, I want to experience it all. Thanks.
@above I've not really looked into wheels yet but this one looks good and relatively cheap too. http://www.play.com/Games/P...
I was looking at this. http://www.amazon.com/Logit... It's quite expensive, but it o so effin sweet. But the one you gave is great and reasonable in price. Appreciate it.
Jesus christ if you go with that you are dedicated! Respect!
Discussing games like that should never be off topic in any topic! Games are always the topic!
Today is embargo for reviews, right?
Yes, the embargo lifts tonight.
I think iron star movement needs to make another song like they did with uncharted 2 for either heavy rain or god of war 3 cause they have a big chance for goty awards.
Everyone with a PS3 and who's of age should buy this game. An experience of a lifetime.
@movements- Woah dude, howd u get the game so early?
I'm actually excited because I think it's something my wife will like. She really only plays Wii (and doesn't even play that too often). Maybe a way to ease her into adult gaming.
ign gave heavy rain a 9.0
I am going to guess that all the sites that gives HR a great score will temporarily be off the PS3 Fans' "biased site" list.
When I was in my twenties I probably would have passed on a game like this or gotten bored with it quickly. But being in my forties now and being the father of six great kids this "game" takes on a whole different meaning. I will be angry when I "play" Heavy Rain. I will cry when I "play" Heavy Rain. If you have children you know. When you have children you will know. Things change. The more you have lived the more you will appreciate this experience. Much respect to the developers for taking the medium to a different level.
Im only 23 and have a 7 month old daughter and this game is a definite buy for me. Hell my wife is excited for this game she wants to have her own playthrough of the game which is a first, usualy she just wants to play a little bit, though she loves playing LittleBigPlanet, me as well. I love what this game is trying to do. I have been playing video games for a long time and the story of a video game has always been very important to me, gameplay alone doesnt cut it. Thats why I loved U2. Now HEAVY RAIN will give me that fix, plus anything with serial killers and mystery is a win for me. I must say though im buying God Of War 3 first then Heavy Rain. Me and kratos need to end what begun years ago, the epic story that has been driving me insane waiting for a conclusion to this epic game.
with the scores this game is getting, it's looking to be a masterpiece. I'm so happy with my pre-order right now :)
Okay just pre orded it. :)
Add this game to the LONG List of PS3 'AAA' Exclusives;)
but youre not going to buy it are you? EVERY ps3 game on you claim will be great and what not but i bet you dont even buy 10% of the games you claim to be great, i will b egetting this a day before it releases thanks to my preorder from a store that ALWAYS breaks release dates
Great scores all around. Can't wait for the release day.
No negative comments or bad reviews can sway me now. This game is as good as brought.
