Total Playstation: Heavy Rain Review

Total Playstation writes: "t's literally impossible to talk about Heavy Rain without spoiling something. Truth be told, I've completely rewritten this review seven different times. Each time the start is different, the way of telling my way through my personal version of the events is different, but the ending is the same: you absolutely MUST buy this game. You must play it... and that's where I'm stuck. There are, at present count, somewhere over 20 different versions of the "ending" to experience.

But that's a little misleading. See, if you haven't been following Heavy Rain, you may not know about its biggest selling point: actions early in the game can have repercussions later on -- including the death of one of the four main characters. The gravity of having the sum of your choices rather than just a simple binary yes/no choice add up to something that can be remarkably subtle in how it ripples throughout the rest of the narrative is impressive to say the least. In some cases, one action can have a cascading effect that stretches beyond one simple "path" through the game" (Heavy Rain , PS3) 9.0/10
