Heavy Rain is not a game that can be summed up with a simple letter grade so please, take the grade you see above this and ignore it. That's right, throw it out of the window. It may as well be a picture of a bird, or the word "spaghetti". It just doesn't matter. The simple fact is that Heavy Rain has significant problems, both as a game and as a piece of "interactive entertainment" but in it you can see the beginnings of so many things that can, in the right hands, push both video games and interactive entertainment forward that you can't dismiss the game outright because of its flaws.
