VGC: Heavy Rain Review

VGChartz writes: "Heavy Rain has not redefined the way games are played, or started a revolution for the industry which all developers will now follow. It has, however, successfully blurred the lines between games and movies a little by offering an extremely cinematic experience that doesn't leave the player watching endless cutscenes. More importantly, Heavy Rain is fun to play. It gives the player a thrilling rush, and an intriguing and interesting story that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the end. This is the kind of game that you may sit down and play all at once, not because it's incredibly short, but because it's just too hard to put down." (Heavy Rain , PS3) 9.1/10

Before Aquanox comes in here. Denouncing HR as not AAA...


That = AAA. They use actual gaming site and not small scale british newspapers and other junk.

The N4G average is AAA as well...

@ Below: Really I agree 100%. I also agree with the metacritic definition. Just wanted to clear it up is all.

Alpha. I just think Meta critic is one of the worst "Collective review" sites around. Useless really but everyone seems to turn to it...

Who the f*ck cares if HR is AAA or not ???

Demons Souls has 89 metascore does this mean it isnt AAA ?? Hell, what determines what is and what is not AAA ??

IMo Uncharted 1 was AAA, i freaking love it,replayed it arauond 5 times for Trophies and fun.

It has metascore 88 . Who the f*ck cares ??

"In the video game industry, AAA game is an informal description for a video game that is produced and promoted with a relatively high budget."


On Topic: Can't wait for Heavy Rain, loved the demo. Only wish i had more money for all these great games coming out.=(

Exactly-- people make a big deal with an 89 or 88 as if it's not AAA. It's bullcrap really. By the way, Jinxstar, Metacrtic has HR at AA (88). Why should it matter? The game is great, who cares if it gets a 90 or 88? Haters may point to the MC overall and you would point to the GR overall-- it doesn't matter! Your arguing about how great a great game is, it makes no sense.

I've seen 360 fanboys try and argue a game is AA when others will argue it's AAA. That's the last resort of fanboys! Since they can't say the game is crap because it's not getting bad scores, they have to argue that it's not as good as the scores it gets! They go from appealing to the media to arguing with the media. Don't fall for that nonsense.

Heavy Rain is day 1 for me, I really liked the demo. Its one of the few games that interest me on the ps3 this year, along with God of War and a Valkyria Chronicles sequel if one makes it out this year.
feelintheflow  +   1867d ago
I am really excited for this game.....
I played the demo a couple of times. The only thing I don't like is your character walks really slow all the time, like he is strutting. How about a little spring in his step so it doesn't take 5 minutes to walk down an alley. Other than that, I was totally immersed in the game. Can't wait to spend countless hours playing it.

Is not like PS3 owners make a big deal for the Review scores, come on a "bad score" from an Exclusive Game is a "weapon" for fanboys haters of whatever console


Good Review and Score, I'll enjoy this Fr*cking Game
N4BmpS  +   1867d ago
@ Oldsnake007 and Alphamale I agree with the both of you It doesn't matter what MC gives it, if it's a game you don't wanna overlook cuz you have an unquestionable belief that it will be good go for it and buy it, if you have major doubts but wanna try it out borrow it or rent it or wait til it's cheap. fanboys, 360 and PS3 alike worry to much about a MC overall score, they just do it to get under each others skin, which makes them equally very annoying.I know this is out of the ball park a little but I can guarantee that Heavy Rain isn't Dynasty Warriors. Oh and another thing, this is a good review, my second favorite for this title.

@sikbeta & @n4b
PS3 fans DO make a big deal out of review scores. Everybody does.

"a "bad score" from an Exclusive Game is a "weapon" for fanboys haters of whatever console"

As is a "good score" for an exclusive game which becomes a weapon for fanboys to use on whatever console.

Reviews help people decide whether a game is worth purchasing or not. Sure, it's not as great as renting a game, but I do often find reviews help a lot. The problem with fanboys is that they LOVE appealing to the media unless of course they give bad scores, in which case the media is all of a sudden biased. It happened with MAG. People are so caught up with using scores to bash other fanboy groups that they think a 7/10 is a very bad score. Nobody looks at content anymore, they just see a number and then automatically hate on the game or review.


The thing is that MC's score is off by TWO POINTS! And people are arguing "OH IT'S NOT AAA!" That's just desperation to downplay a game that is already great when you can't downplay it for being bad.

@ alpha
Every single bit of this p'ssing contest started with the insecure x360 fans when the PS3 was just about to be launched. If you weren't here 3-4 years ago and are oblivious to this FACT you really shouold go back and look it up.

Look what happened after the price of the PS3 was first made public. Who threw the first stone?

I wasnt sure if this game would be popular among the elite gaming sites, but its receiving a lot of positive support.

It could still be a flop sales-wise but it's faring well on Amazon and I know I'm getting it for sure.
djfullshred  +   1867d ago
Games with really good reviews from the majority of game sites usually are not flops. Not saying it is going to be a blockbuster or overnight success, but it is going to sell a decent amount with enough good reviews behind it.

I hated how like ppl thought sony were paying off sites to review heavy rain a higher score. When it was false, Sony know the game will be a AAA game this game haves alot of haters too that flock to it.
