Funny, thought that was the popular opinion? That in fact its another love it or hate it game.

I don't think so. Heavy Rain is one of those items that attracts rabid fanboys who can't tolerate any criticism, period.

God knows why.

I enjoyed Heavy Rain! I liked playing the game because for once it was something fresh, different from this shooter filled genre. It had different play mechanics - not just running and shooting. Plus it was a good game to replay and make different decisions, then see the outcome - awarded with bonus trophies as well :)

Edit: Poisonous-Snake beat me to it.

It's not difficult to find people that didn't like HR, the game is unique and not the norm, I liked it, it wasn't brilliant, but it was really good IMO, gotta respect the opinions of others though

I actually think the game was quite brilliant. The way they connect all your decisions and allow you to control the direction of the story is brilliantly implemented(not to mention the quality of the story itself). Theres a reason we don't see this kind of story telling in videogames; it takes a lot of work and a brilliant mind.

I can understand why some people would enjoy it, but for what it is, it is brilliant.

Agree with remember.

The reason we dont see more games like this would be because of the casuals and subsequently look at what happened to Mass Effect.

Mass Effect was suppose to be like Heavy Rain just on a larger scale since it was going to be 3 games but it was dumbed down to a generic shooter.

Personally once I started playing Heavy Rain I loved it and couldnt put it down till I was finished. There were some parts that the game mechanics were irritating but other then that it was a good game.

I am actually looking forward to what else they bring out.

what a loser u got that comment from the website this vid is from. be original for once

MsclMexican1744d ago

I never considered heavy Rain as a game

Even Quantic Dream never considered it that...

Its an Interactive Drama,and one of the most unique genres to ever grace gaming.

It started with Shenmue, but I found HR very engrossing and interesting from start to finish

I'll take it over a generic war fps anyday

This "game" is over rated as hell. It must take rabid Sony fanboy to cling on to the thought that this collection of random button presses is anything but steaming garbage.

It's not the mechanics, the worst offender in this crap fest is the plot. It makes no god damn sense. For a story driven game like this to have such multiple glaring plot holes is inexcusable.

JackBNimble1743d ago

besides the fact that heavy rain is a heeping pile of sh*t, it also has zero replay value once you have completed the endings.

I owned it for 1 week before it went to the recycle bin... then again this is just my opinion, and you know what they say? opinions are like assholes, every buddy has one.

Don't know if this guy is serious or trying to be funny.

I feel your hate. It makes you stronger.

Poisonous-Snake1744d ago

Heavy Rain is indeed a breath of fresh oxygen and exactly what this industry needs instead of repetiveness shooters.

GilIsMunny1744d ago

You're like Adam Sessler's psychotic fanboy.
