"Despite the gripping plot, the most dramatic of consistencies throughout Heavy Rain stems from its title: the rain. Just like the constant whirring or wind in The Shining, the continual downpour lodges a sense of dread and terror in the player's mind that cannot be escaped. Whatever the outcome, Heavy Rain is sure to stay in your thoughts well beyond the final curtain call, and will stir debates for years to come. It's saddening that, even though you can replay individual chapters, once your story has finished completely for the first time, your personal tale is hard to overlook, no matter the result on the second play through. With that said, Heavy Rain is an unmissable adventure that holds players accountable for their actions like never before."
