CN: "Heavy Rain is ambitious and daring enough to risk much on an idea so radically different than the industry standard. Fortunately, the end result is every bit as brilliant and artistically beautiful as the hype suggests.
Though not without its flaws, Heavy Rain is a unique, innovative thriller that any PlayStation 3 fan should at least try. Its lack of conventional gameplay may turn some people off, but it's still worth a gander. You might be surprised to find how satisfying a gripping, suspenseful story can be. " B+/A+
