GamerZines: But that's the bottom line with Heavy Rain; to expect the unexpected. It's a beautiful and utterly unique adventure that surprisingly never grows tiresome, complete with a plot that stands toe-to-toe with the industry's finest.
But simultaneously, with its unexpected combination of wonky scripting and occasional clumsiness, Heavy Rain often feels like it's dipping its toes into waters that even Cage himself doesn't fully understand. It's an experience deserving of being trialled by everyone at least once, but also a title that, after the initial wow factor has worn off, may be better remembered for the spectacle it could have been, rather than the flawed, yet utterly brilliant 'interactive drama' it actually is. 90/100
