Game Informer: Heavy Rain Review

Game Informer: A video game can encompass a multitude of experiences, transforming gamers into the heroes of intergalactic wars or the saviors of underwater civilizations. While the settings and scenarios may be different, most titles use similar gameplay vocabularies to immerse and entertain us. Concepts like shooting the bad guys, leveling up your character, and acquiring new items are so pervasive that they have been inextricably woven into most players' definition of what it means to be a video game. Heavy Rain forces you to reconsider that definition. It is barely a game in the popular sense of the word, but Quantic Dream's masterpiece makes groundbreaking strides in storytelling and character development, demonstrating that interactive entertainment still has a deep well of untapped potential. (Heavy Rain , PS3) 9.5/10

Great score...
I'll be playing this game, but I'm still not sure whether I'll rent it or buy it...

It seems like it'll have quite a bit of replayability, so I'm leaning towards buying it.
