Empire: Heavy Rain Review

Doing for PlayStation what James Cameron has done for 3D, French developer Quantic Dreams has crafted a spectacularly riveting opus, deftly melding elements of both cinema and games unlike any developer before it. The fabric of Heavy Rain is its narrative, but to delve too deep into its twisting storyline would be foolish, ultimately spoiling what is essentially an interactive thrill-ride sure to shape the outcome of grown up games on both PS3 and its rival platforms. This is a game whose foundations lie in choice, and an unprecedented level of choice at that. (Heavy Rain , PS3) 5/5

Excellent score for an excellent game.

David Cage is going to feel justifiably very proud of these reviews. He's often said that he wanted to prove once and for all that games can be 'mature' (in the proper sense of the word) and many reviewers are acknowledging that, by engaging the player's emotions rather than pandering to them, this is exactly what HEAVY RAIN has achieved.
