Heavy Rain may be a gripping, interactive tale of despair and anguish, but crippling audio issues and a lack of actual gaming means it's far from perfect.
this review knocked HR to 87 in meetacritic Friend Play = 0 Multi Play = 0 don't know why the obsession with multiplayer this gen
I pray to St. Vidicon and Isidore to get your 360 back from repair shop ASAP.
though evident, the game is too gripping to be taken aback by these small issues. great game nevertheless!
ok.. how does one ignore a user in N4G? i really want to put someone in my so far empty list.
I didn't read the whole review but I do agree with the last four paragraphs. Heavy Rain is no masterpiece at all. I was lucky and happy to not encounter any glitches nor bugs while I was playing but I got to chapter Face to Face with Scott Shelby and Lauren, turned it off for the night. When I turned it back on and clicked continue the game would not load and I thought inFamous was bad. Heavy Rain crashes my PS3 without fail everytime. Plus its stupid Heavy Rain has NO A.I. NO HEAVY PHYSICS and the whole shebang to figure out. It falls short of KZ2/UC2. Those games obviously had glitches but isn't as widespread and terrible as this. Some people are even stuck at the prologue. How's that, for a happy customer? ...and before you think about disagreeing with my posts: http://community.eu.playsta... http://community.eu.playsta... GAME OVER
Bungie has his precious "calender bug" taken from him so must revert to Heavy Rain bashing to fill the vacuum, failing to realise it's a success with reviewers AND gamers.
Forget this one, sunshine?
you think ps3 owners are gonna cry? they have played the game and its terrific, the sites which COUNT the main sites gave it terrific scores. you are just showing your insecurity here, buy a ps3 already.
I think the writer went into the game with different expectations. I knew as a customer and doing a little research that this game would be different than me playing my typical FPS or manipulating what is going on in my environment. Perhaps it was not as enjoyable experience for him as that is his personal opinion, but so far it is for me. Yes the game starts slow intentionally to familiarize players with te control scheme, but it does pick up and I am still guessing to see who the killer is. Loss of audio definitely could be fixed with a patch. To those who own the game I hope you are enjoying it as it has made this FPS fan a believer in something out of the norm. To those who don't own it at least give it a rent. You may find you like it. It's not just about QTE but asks you to make moral or imoral conscious decisions.
