Digital Battle: Heavy Rain Review

Visually the game looks great, especially people's faces and the world is rendered wonderfully and sets a wonderful mood. However, a few things aren't of such a quality, for instance, lip-syncing with dialogue, some animations look crude, some items are quite low res and not animated correctly. Probably the worst thing about it is the dialogue, which is supposed to be delivered by American actors, but instead, it's delivered by Europeans with a fake American accent, which really puts a damper on the authenticity of the game. Overall though, Heavy Rain still stands out as one of the best PS3 games of the past few years, and you should definitely check it out.

Just played the demo and it was nice and relaxing , there was a little bit of camera issues but one of my most enjoyable ps3 moments

redsquad2987d ago

8 out of 10 (which is good) but then "Heavy Rain still stands out as one of the best PS3 games of the past few years"

Do I detect a back-handed compliment there?

Bungie2987d ago

Seeing as Halo's average score is 8.7 and Heavy Rains average score is 9.0 you'd agree with me when I say EVERY Halo game has sucked and all halo games will suck...(I don't personally believe that). SO Bungies opinion on Halo is what? Is Halo a flop because if according to you it isn't YOUR A MORON AT DATA ANALYSIS.

Here's an example, I interview 100 people their average height is 5'9, one guy is 1 foot tall... would that mean ALL human are 1 foot? No, it's the average that counts and guess what Heavy Rain has an AVERAGE of 9.0

You have too many bubbles.

Ha ha very funny. Halo's average score isn't 8.7 you weirdo.

Halo 3 has a 94 on metacritic.
Halo 3 ODST has an 83.
Halo Combat Evolved has a 97.
Halo 2 has a 95.

Halo 3 ODST has the lowest score and it wasn't even a main Halo release.
The three main Halo releases have scored extremely well.

BTW, I don't agree that Heavy Rain is a flop.

@ bungie

Gotta disagree, dude.
HEavy rain is not a flop.

8/10 is a good score.
What's more, metacritic has HR at 89.

That's an 'AA' title, make no mistake.

This game is a gem , a game ppl should add to their collections u never know what dlc may appear from it free dlc or premium stuff.

An idea of free dlc would be costumes or like scenes like the sleazy place demo how if there was like a theme where it was valentines day themed things.

Edit: there's a valentines heart pillow on the bed in the sleazy hotel scene.
