Play all four roles in this psychological thriller where every action you take has consequences. How this story unfolds is entirely up to you.
Heavy Rain will be a flagship title for the Playstation 3 for quite a while as Quantic Dream have created a game that can only be summed up with words like 'bold', 'innovative', and 'immersive'.
In the conclusion of the story, my ending wasn't a good one. In fact… I found it extremely dissatisfying, which again reiterates my main qualm with the experience; why give the player choice? Had I not had the opportunity to royally ruin the story, I wouldn't have such a mixed reaction upon finishing the game.
Perhaps I'll be the first to 'Heavy Rain' on the parade, but I had expected this game to shatter whatever expectations I had expected prior to picking up the title. It did not.
Heavy Rain was a nice excursion and it is a game I will recommend due to the concept and beauty of the game, however at the end of the day I would rate it no higher than a 7."
