Awesome review for an awesome game.

DarkTower8053007d ago

Yup, got my copy today and I'm loving it. I've never been so emotionally vested in a game before. Probably because I'm a single dad of a 10 year old boy, just like in the game lol.

maskedwarrior3007d ago

Liking what I played so far as well.

simplyRealistic183007d ago

watching this game doesn't do any justice, because i watch this game on jtv for a pretty goood amount of time and let me tell you, I-WAS-BORED-OUT-MY-FU_C_KING- mind

the selling point of this game is playing it first hand and that how you get the emotional aspect of it

jjacinto233007d ago

I was playing it for the forth story.......... so far i got different ending in each

Heavy Rain is amazing. I actually failed a QTE on purpose because I let my own personal feelings overtake my need to be perfect. The story, the mature content. I honestly believe if HR doesn't tear your heart into pieces and consume you to the point you play with your own emotions instead of you hands, you are either a child or have no soul. HR is redefining and those two jackass reviews who gave this game 4 & 4.5s out of 10, need to kill themselves. Everything that is HR out side a few small quirks, is brilliant and David Cage deserves a friggin Oscar for his outstanding writing.

It won't win game of the year but i hope it wins alot of others. Such a great experience.

Off topic
just played gow3 demo omg I never knew i'd enjoyed pulling out a cyclopse eye out so much. Or ripping off someones head and use it to help me find a clue lol

jamesgtaiv3007d ago

@A Cupcake for Gabe "I honestly believe if HR doesn't tear your heart into pieces and consume you to the point you play with your own emotions instead of you hands, you are either a child or have no soul."

I am sorry but the game telling me to press specific buttons all the time, several at that, was a constant barrier for immersion. I really do not understand how interacting in absolutely trivial tasks adds ANYTHING to the experience. If this had been a choose your own adventure in which you just tip the balance and sit back to watch, its cinematic and dramatic ambition would be far more fully realised. Instead, it always remained a game about a controller.

"if HR doesn't tear your heart into are either a child or have no soul."

Did you know people can be both? Yeah, they can be a Ginger kid.

Anyway, yeah it's great to see another AAA review for Heavy Rain. The news on sales for HR have shown a healthy interest by the public and the reviews are great as well. Radical departures from the norm like Heavy Rain should be granted with great commercial and critical success if we ever hope to live in a gaming world not dominated by COD and it's clones.

That review was for God of War 3, this review is for Heavy Rain.

How was your prediction right?

Bubble Buddy3007d ago (Edited 3007d ago )

^ whoops :| my mistake it's late here and im dead tired after a long week, so yeah just ignore it thanks for noticing the mistake

sikbeta3007d ago


You Played Indigo/F?

Gamers FTW!!!

Good review. I still gotta play this game myself; as soon as midterms are over... :/

GameGambits3007d ago

Screw midterms. It'd take you 9-10 hours to complete the game. You can find the time.

ClownBelt3007d ago

I've never seen this site gives low scores to be honest.

ArcFatalix3007d ago

Heavy Rain is a terrific game and deserves 9/10.

BannedForNineYears3007d ago

I accidentally clicked "Continue" on the video without changing the year I was born! Now it thinks I'm 10 and can't watch the video! Even if I try a different browser.
God, sure, I'm not over 18 but who cares? I'll do what I want! (Cartman reference xD)

Bigrhyno3007d ago

I think the best thing to do would be to try again in 8 years.

GiantEnemyCrab3007d ago

^^^^^ I just spilled my beer because I fell over laughing ^^^^^

+bubble for that wit!

BannedForNineYears3007d ago

I'm glad some people are getting a good laugh out of this.

Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack, it's not like there are gonna be boobs in the review.

djtek1843007d ago

Teletext must be feeling pretty lonely by now

Anorexorcist3007d ago (Edited 3007d ago )

These and the several other 9+ reviews HR has gotten from well-known gaming media outlets only further displays how deep in the tar pits teletext is in.

cereal_killa3007d ago (Edited 3007d ago )

There will always be a site whether it's known or not that will do a low score just for hits. And there will always be an idiot Muppet trolling these sites just to find these type of reviews and of course they will be the only ones they remember.

ON Topic: Great review for a great game on my second time playing it trying to get a different ending I don't think certain things will change but some of the outcomes will be different. A definitely a must play for people who want a change from the FPS hack n slash type games.
