PlayStation Future: Heavy Rain Review

When Heavy Rain was first announced in E3 2006, it certainly shook things up, with the tech demo called The Casting it was great to see what the wet-behind-the-ears PS3 could do. Ever since then, Quantic Dream have been teasing us with the looks of such an inspiring and ground-breaking game, including the sole use of quick-time-events (QTEs) throughout the game. Finally, the game has been released to the awaiting public, warts and all. But has the game disappointed many with the oodles of hype, or has it just exceeded those expectations? Whatever the reaction was, it was going to rock the community’s world… (Heavy Rain , PS3) 9/10

A bit late....
...Especially for so undeserved a score. Heavy Rain is entertaining and all, but no matter how you look at it, it's quite flawed. Sure, the gameplay gets most of the criticism, but the writing doesn't fare much better.

Nothing against this site, but I did want to make a joke comment.

PlayStation Future: Heavy Rain review? More like PlayStation Past.

Crap, that was much funnier in my head. Meh I'll post anyway. :)

I'm here all week folks.

Fair enough about it being late :), but as we are only a small team at PlayStation Future, we only have time to review a few games a month.

Sometimes a review will come in late, but just because there were so many other games to play and review at the time doesn't mean that this one should be missed off of the pile.

I hope you can see why we still publish reviews even several months after release - although from now on we'll try to market them as 'Classic Reviews' or something like that.

I met to disagree thought the writing was perfect.

The crawling part in this game was terrible. I don't ever remember cussing at the TV so much. The character kept going the wrong way. I enjoyed the story though.

Funny, but that was one part that my little brother and I both agreed was great. Full of tension, but not because we couldn't control Ethan. *shrug* I don't think 9 is undeserved at all. It was an amazing experience in my book. One thing I will disagree with in the review is about the voice acting. It wasn't terrible but the actors were obviously trying to sound American with very uneven results. Also, there were indeed alot of choices to make but there was also a fair amount of times where the player just had the illusion of choice. Still... awesome game. I also loved Indigo Prophecy and look forward to the next game from these guys.
