PlayStation Unlimited Writes: In my opinion, Heavy Rain did everything it set out to do to an impressive degree, and yet waves of online reviewers complain as though they’d been grossly misled by trailers of Ethan Mars capping bad guys like he was John McClane. Heavy Rain is, and always was, referred to as an interactive movie game. And not a Michael Bay movie, but a mystery drama. So yes, there is a lot of dialogue. Yes, the controls are only slightly different from the maligned quick time events. No, there aren’t millions of explosions. Despite being an extremely accessible game (as in, my grandmother could play it), Heavy Rain is not for everybody. But regardless of whether or not you liked it, it’s impossible to deny that it is different from any other game out right now, and it brings some valuable concepts to the table that future games can stand to emulate.
