Joystick Division: Heavy Rain Review

Joystick Division writes: "It's been said in much of the coverage of Heavy Rain that it's hardly a video game in the traditional sense. I'd argue the complete opposite - Heavy Rain is a video game in a very classic style: the adventure game. The adventure game genre has experienced something of a renaissance lately, thanks to the work of developers like Telltale games.

I haven't personally checked out many of the recent adventure game titles, so for me Heavy Rain was like revisiting late-era Sierra adventure games like Phantasmagoria, when a game's story was more important than how you interacted with the world. The decidedly old-school mentality of Heavy Rain means that it likely won't appeal to every gamer out there, but for me the game was (mostly) a rousing success.

In a strange way, I even count Heavy Rain's failings as successes. Read on and I'll explain what I mean." (Heavy Rain , PS3) 4.5/5

This game was a roller coaster of emotions for me. I think this new genre could have a future with a little polish from future devs.
