Gamer Euphoria: Heavy Rain Review

The goal of every story is to form an emotive connection amongst the in-game protagonists and the observer. When this bond does not exist between the two, you are impervious to the scenarios portrayed throughout the plot. This distinction is the difference between a game being good, and memorable. Throughout gaming history, this link is fleeting at best, but every now and then, such game comes along and a much deeper bond is formed. This bond is one in which the observer is less of a passive participant and more of an emotionally engaged accomplice.

Heavy Rain is one of those few games that can claim to have achieved this covenant feat. As Heavy Rain progresses and unveils itself, it is not uncommon to feel the strain on your heart-strings as Ethan Mars demonstrates to the Oragami Killer just how far he is willing to go to save the one he loves. (Heavy Rain , PS3) 4/5
