IGN AU: Heavy Rain Review

This game represents some fine character development and storytelling. The further in you get the more involving it all becomes, and when you finish you'll be raring to start all over again, and that's always a great sign.

Presentation - 9.5
Graphics - 9.0
Sound - 8.5
Gameplay - 8.5
Lasting Appeal - 8.0
Overall - (Heavy Rain , PS3) 8.8/10

Time and time again, IGN AUS is the most reliable review source ever. I can't wait for this but I'm gonna have to. Spending freeze for the next few months. Pity me.

I'm actually surprised though. I was telling my friend who I never thought would be interested about this and she's actually really excited about the demo tomorrow. Goes to show you never can tell. So spread the word people, you never know.

Either the IGN AU score changed, or the contributer is a tard, because the actual score is 8.8/10, not 9/10.

If HR is a 9/10 in graphics which game is 10/10 MW2?
cayal  +   1722d ago
How awesome is that review. lol.
DaTruth  +   1722d ago
I'm not usually a stickler for review scores, but Isn't being able to play through a game 9 times for different endings and more to see how every twist will happen, good for lasting appeal.

Does only online multiplayer qualify for lasting appeal? I've played near 200hrs of Demon's Souls and have barely touched the multiplayer!

Real score is 8.8 from IGN AU, dont know why the contributor put 9.0.

Hahahaha. Bots nowhere to be found lately on Heavy Rain threads, cause they're all positive!
Another excellent PS3 only exclusive :)

And there's so many more on the way...while the 360 is still STARVING for a good game.

They'll be playing MW2 till REACH comes out lol

9.0 Graphics? Its graphics are comparable to U2!
8.0 Lasting Appeal? It has multiple endings, what more do they want? These double standards are ruining most reviews.
Michael-Jackson  +   1722d ago
Bloodmask failed yet again, it got a 8.8 not a 9.
MerkinMax  +   1722d ago
@ Michael Jackson (sir ken)
I've never seen such an obvious dupe account. The use of all the smilies and uneeded punctuation really shows.
Michael-Jackson  +   1722d ago
It's meant to be obvious and your the first person to mention it, about time. I've done it on purpose, lol. I can never match the actual Sir Ken for obvious reasons. Have you ever heard of the word "Copying"? it's not hard at all. I've done it with the infamous "360 has..." then again I like getting accused of having a dupe account.

Iv got some skillzz!!! do I??? ;-) - See I just did it.

MajestieBeast  +   1722d ago
I will only get it if we can reach 100:P kidding i was buying it regardless of the rating because the demo was just that good.
saint_john_paul_ii  +   1722d ago
if you dont buy this game, then i curse you to hell.
N4BmpS  +   1722d ago
Wait what number are we on? Oh well I think uh 20? But anyway My mom wants to see this game in action so now added to my hype is the obligation to play, I guess this makes HR the greatest interactive gaming experience? Maybe. If parents and politicians have a problem with this title they're either dumb, a stiff prune or well a politician. FEBRUARY 23 couldn't get hear fast enough. And we're still waiting on GoWIII.

from destructoid
"when it could easily have been a total success if the brains behind it weren't trying so hard to be smart, and cared more about providing a sensible plot as opposed to a shocking one."

so if you're dumb you wont like this game.
Ilikegames76  +   1722d ago
I think Jim was the one
reviewing the game. It will get a higher score if there were more boobies and nudity in the game.
Arnon  +   1722d ago
Um... I think this article needs to be updated. This isn't even the same score.
