I hated Heavy Rain before I even played it. Now I've finished it and…

A games journalist who's hated Heavy Rain ever since he heard it existed, attempts to write a balanced, reasoned, even-handed opinion piece about it because, love it or hate it, Heavy Rain is a game that begs to be discussed. Spoilers ahead…

Aye, the title just screams it.

I'm cool with everyone having an opinion. Obviously Heavy Rain is not everyone's cup of tea. However I'll disagree with HR not bringing anything new to the table.

The blogger, and for the most part, all the major complaints I've read talk about the gameplay. Yes, QTE can be annoying, but Heavy Rain wasn't good because of this, it was good because of the (multiple) choices they allowed you to make. Whether they be story related or something as simple as the camera angle. This all adds to the theatrical element of the game, and THAT is what made Heavy Rain unique.

To be honest, I didn't even think the story was that great, it was the way Quantic Dream allowed you to experience it. In a generation of games being frowned upon if they don't include some kind of multiplayer experience, Heavy Rain makes you forget you even cared for one.

And if all else fails, Quantic Dream & Sony both should receive a major kudos for even having the balls to release a game built the way HR is.

(Sorry for making you all read)

It allows even the biggest of idiots to post their feelings and share them with the world. It shows us how important the net can be to even the stupidest of people.

I have to at least respect you first.

And the title alone sapped any chance of any default respect I usually give sites.

Wow, breaking news for sure...

They need tighten up the approval process for this site.
