Heavy Rain Review: OXCGN's Steal It for 360?


"Is this one title that would have made all 360 owners wet?

Heavy Rain is Quantic Dream's latest idea of turning an A Grade movie styled experience into an interactive, chair gripping adventure. While this is not a direct sequel to their 2005 cult classic Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain further develops, refines and reinvents the game play formula building on Fahrenheit for the better."

I've heard some good and some really really bad about this game but would love to have been able to play it on my 360.

Of course my PS3 friends (some of whom didn't like it at all) said it would never be able to run on 360, but pffff whatever...

I think the upcoming God of War 3 and superior FF13 version are also very tempting reasons to invest in a PS3. Now im a 360 gamer primarily, but the exclusives just keep getting better for Sony at the moment.

So Press Agree you have to work for Sony so I just wonder why they don't give you a lesson on how to type a comment post. You ever heard of a line break? How about a paragraph?

This is why I reported this story.. This is the kind of crap this story invites.. You aren't selling anyone a PS3 here..

I have an idea 360 owners.. Go outside, pour a bucket of water over your head, play Ninja Blade and then watch the end of Old Yeller.

You got your Heavy Rain..

(and yes I own this game on the PS3 and am finding it boooring and tedious)

I approved, only because crab was crying so much.

I just hate the limited interactivity. The fight scenes and other action scenes look really cool, but the gameplay mechanics of these parts are just press a button as it appears on screen. I would prefer it if the action was more interactive.

The same goes for God of War 3. The level of action going on is amazing, there is so much cool stuff happening that I can't believe it at times. However, the gameplay mechanics are simply buttonmashing and QTE's (based on the demo). I would much rather it be a more interactive experience, where hte fun doesn't just come what you're seeing, but how you interact with the game as well.

This game was not made for everyone, so I can't blame some people for not liking it. The graphics are very good though, as well as the story and dialogue. I can see how someone might find it boring. It's not your typical video game.

These guys obviously love their 360's, but are not so brainwashed that they won't admit that there are greats on other systems as well.

I got my PS3 first, but eventually got a 360 and Wii to play their great exclusives.

I actually think the console war is funny. The ApocalyPS3 comments have been hilarious. But seeing articles like this is refreshing and shows that there are still true gamers out there on both sides of the fence.

I'm glad 360 gamers can also enjoy this great game. I really loved it.

Gotta agree though the first 2 hours were quite a pain. And im not looking forward to redoing them again on my second play through.

gaminoz2970d ago

They can only enjoy it if they have a PS3....

Still Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, Alan Wake etc. are still good upcoming games for 360.

Heavy Rain is still a game I'd like to try, so I'm glad I have both 360 and PS3.

gaminoz2970d ago

Ooops just realised I said 'upcoming games' when Mass Effect 2 has been out for ages :)


You don't need an X to play SC, ME2, also it is for PC.

But hey, people think is only for consoles.

Immortal Kaim2970d ago

After I beat ME2, I'm going to play Heavy Rain (looks amazing), then I'm on to FFXIII...Too many games

Grown Folks Talk2970d ago

Got through it quicker than I expected to, but I did play in pretty sizable chunks. I don't know if i'll play through the entire game again, or just do individual chapters over. Nice thing about owning both systems is I get to partake in whatever draws my interest. Personally, Splinter Cell is the only game that I would make sure to have a system for if were exclusive.

gaminoz2970d ago

People I know who have played it say it is pretty amazing. They are still deciding between PC and 360 version though.

Grown Folks Talk2970d ago

The only stuff I play on pc is things like Still Life, peggle, ect.

Seraphemz2970d ago

Im completely into the story... even though I ( think ) know who the killer is ( fn spoiler [email protected], i hope you die )

I dont remember the last time I was actually nervous about trying to keep my character alive.

Sorry GEC, this game is really good.

GiantEnemyCrab2970d ago (Edited 2970d ago )

And that's totally cool. I loved Indigo Prophecy but this game didn't click with me as much. But if you like it and I know many others did that is awesome. QD still rock and I love them for the risks they take.

Infernostew2970d ago

I don't understand how you could love Indigo Prophecy and not like Heavy Rain. I mean Heavy Rain is pretty much Indigo Prophecy with a much better story and characters. I prefer the QTE arrangement in Heavy Rain to Indigo Prophecy. There really isn't too much of a difference between the two game... except that Indigo Prophecy was on Xbox... hmm.

Seraphemz2970d ago (Edited 2970d ago )

Hey, i love Heavy Rain, and I think that its a much better story than Indigo, but i can see where people might like IP and not HR.

From what i remember, cause its been a while, IP had a bit different feel to it. I know that it had QTE but not as much as Heavy Rain.

But, to me... its not a bad thing. I love both games, and like QEC said... i think QD is awesome.

I will buy anything that they make.

sparta762970d ago

CRabs mad cause it doesn't have a 360 logo!

This game is awsome!! Stop playing me2 and I haven't looked back..
On my 3rd play, if u can't afford it, just rent it!! Trust me you'll love it!!!!
