Den of Geek: Heavy Rain PlayStation 3 review

Den of Geek: As someone who usually finds QTE events to be a sign of sloppy and lazy development, I was prepared to be disappointed with Heavy Rain, and I had almost written it off before ever playing it, making the decision to give it a miss. Thankfully, I didn't succumb to my preconceptions and, after playing through the absorbing and brilliantly paced story, I'm pleased to say I was wrong.

Heavy Rain isn't really a game, per se, but more of an experience. True, as an actual playable game Heavy Rain is laughable, with little but a string of button pushes and controller manipulations to its name, but as an engaging narrative that's hard to put down, it's a winner. Yes, you can easily complete it in a couple of sittings, but with several endings and the chance to go back and see scenes you may have bypassed, there's enough here to warrant a purchase.

There'll be flame wars in forums across the Internet debating Heavy Rain's quality, and like some of the best risk taking titles, many will simply ignore or berate it as a waste of time, but, if you're looking for a truly impressive and absorbing interactive work of fiction, Heavy Rain is a must have.
