PasteMagazine: Heavy Rain Review

Jason Killingsworth writes, "Interactive thriller is remarkably brave, but only periodically thrilling

The videogame industry has been outgrossing Hollywood by a "Gerry Brookhymer who?" kind of margin for years now, but game developers can't stop using motion pictures as the benchmark for their own visual-presentation and storytelling endeavors. To the point that, in game marketing, the word "cinematic"-though qualitatively neutral-is now assumed to be interchangeable with modifiers like "mind-blowing" or "amazing."

No. Just no.

Played the game 3 times. First playthrough was great! After my second playthrough, trying to "break" the game a bit, I noticed some faults that knocked some of the enjoyment down a bit, but definitely not down to 62.

don't get why are you complaining the game have very little replay value and very bad controls

the voice acting is not the best and that's not just me saying that

i think 7 is about right, 6.2 seems too low

i love how suck you are.........

Lifendz2280d ago

7 is about right in this post but in some other post it's all how great the game is. You are really pathetic.

I can tell you havent played it from the way u talk about it. Just go replay the game and come back or dont talk at all. and i have this, beat it once and its going to be in my PS3 for a long time.

i'v rented the game ,the first playthrough was fantastic

but the second was seen this-done that , i was done after the second time

if you still loving it, then good for you

When you play it for the second time, your supposed to make different decisions if you don't want to play the same game.

Maybe this time... Lay off the Tripto? x]

Like other great games. Bu bu bu replay value... I'd rather take a sp game of 2-3 playtroughs than another generic shooter with "unlimited" replay boredom

Halo3 MLG Pro2280d ago

Good review. This game is the reason why they have rentals. No reason to buy this game whatsoever. Just a quick play through and your good.

Dragunov2280d ago
