Pocket-Lint: Heavy Rain Review

Pocket-Lint writes: "Heavy Rain is everything Quantic Dream promised that it would be: a powerful, emotional, ground-breaking experience with stunning visuals and believable virtual actors. Gripping, moving, intelligent and visionary, it's the richest synthesis of game and film/TV thriller we've seen yet.

And some of you are going to hate it." (Heavy Rain , PS3) 8/10

I don't understand why so many reviews for this game are like "Some of you are going to hate it." Look, NOTHING is for EVERYBODY. The critics didn't say "The Godfather is the best movie I've seen in years, it's a surefire Best Picture winner, but some of you are going to hate it." Obviously some people aren't going to be interested in a 3 hour long gangster crime movie, but that doesn't stop it from being of the quality that it is. You can't let the idea that some people won't like it get in the way of judging it on its actual qualities, because then you'll be criticizing EVERYTHING since nothing is for everyone. It's just a stupid way to review a game. Tell us about the game and that's it, those of us reading the review can determine for ourselves whether the game is worth playing to US based on what kind of game you've described. Like with sports games. The baseball game last year, MLB The Show, it got 9's across the board, and I'm sure it deserved it based on its qualities, but that doesn't mean that I'm going to buy it, because I already know that that type of game isn't for me. They don't need to tell us that that game isn't for everybody, when it clearly isn't, so why are they doing it for Heavy Rain?
