Joystiq Review: Heavy Rain

It makes sense that the only game I've ever played that came close to what Heavy Rain accomplishes is Quantic Dream's prior effort, Indigo Prophecy. Compared to what it has achieved here, that game seems like proof-of-concept and is improved upon in every possible way. Heavy Rain is an experience that will have you unable to put down your controller from beginning to end, and you'll likely be looking back on what an amazing, unique and moving experience it was for years to come. I know I'll be.

The story is too old to be commented.

This is one of the reasons I've always loved the PlayStation brand. Unlike MS, Sony isn't afraid of taking chance to bring true gamers more unique, innovative games. I can't wait to get Heavy Rain.

HR is everything I want in a videogame: great story, unique ideas, refreshing gameplay...

Everyone needs buy this masterpiece because Quantic Dream hit a home-run for us hardcore gamers.

before sony...I felt the same way about sega. Nintendo played to the calm safe ways and sega took risks. Nice to see sony has been able to make those risks pan out for them.

This game will develop a cult following for sure.

on Sega, I totally agree. I think the Dreamcast was such an amazing system with risky but genre defining games and stellar everything. But unlike the Dreamcast, the PS3 is taking the world by storm....

on topic: props to Heavy Rain, David Cage and all the geniuses at QD. You guys are truly amazing. And thanks Sony for doing what MS fails to do day in and day out...Step outside the trapezoid and envision and create a genre redefining experience once again....Next up GOW3!!!! Followed by Last Guardian, followed by MicroWho?

PS: I said trapezoid...Sony is well above the box folks.....

especially to experience the very "slow start" of the game. I was a Sims fanatic so I think it'll be kinda cool to do whatever you want when you start the game while your family's out shopping. At this point I'm avoiding all reviews because the spoiler count is going through the roof.
