Jeuxvideo: Heavy Rain Review

Jeuxvideo: Better presented and more homogeneous than Fahrenheit, Heavy Rain presents himself as a open book on a universe rocking quickly in horror. True interactive film or false video game?

But as for now, they're too busy playing in the dirty ball pit at Chuck E. Cheeses.

to post this review, just I want to inform you before the flamewar begins, is the most biased french videogame site, they like nothing especially PS3/PS2 exclusives, like the video review of MGS4, they intentionaly played the game in very very easy, and were yelling:
"Look at the dumb AI, PS3 is doomed, MGS4 is stupid!" Of course when you play the game at that level of difficulty, even if you stay in front of the guards, they won't even notice you.Knowing that when I played MGS4 in liquid normal, I was bleeding from my fingers to tell you how it was difficult, guards not giving you any rest, I answred them at that time and they responded: "Huh and in difficult modus, the guards can see through walls, still stupid game!", to show how lame they are, no one rely on their reviews, because they think they are the wisest reviewers on earth and they can criticies everything like they want, here for instance, they began playing the game with prejudice, and they repeated it in every sentence; this game will suck, it's a seven/saw refernce, this gonna suck etc etc till the end, I saw Saw and Seven and only reference to them was the cutting finger(saw), and it's not a bad thing, but when they gave 15/20 to the graphics and 15/20 to the story, and in their review they mentionned that the game contains more tha 60 chapters with many scenes and all scenes play differently each time with every scene influencing the upcoming ones, without forgetting more than 20 different endings, all I can say about them, that they rickrolled themselves, ridiculased and proved how much delusional their site is, screw them! And please never read any review coming from them, they are more biased than eurogamer!

gaffyh3179d ago

Still a good review though. 7.5/10 = Good at least, and I know how good it is since I played the demo ages ago. Can't wait till you guys get to try it out on Feb 11.

thanks for the clarification ;)

These jerks single-handedly knocked .4 off the Metacritic score! Some @sse$ had to go and do it!

@Green: I think 9.2 Metacritic qualifies it as that. But we know you wouldn't comment in the other perfect score reviews! You've been waiting a long time to troll this game going through ten great reviews before this came up!

@Below: LMAO, you have no life and insult people for no reason in internet threads. Grow up!

LordMarius3179d ago (Edited 3179d ago )

LMAO, now he is talking to himself

YogiBear3179d ago

I thought your comment would be AAA but of course I was disappointed again.

Sangria3179d ago (Edited 3179d ago )

I agree with Plastica-man, I worked for Jeuxvideo few months and the only way to describe them: A bunch of amateurs with pro resources. The site is the first video game site in France in terms of popularity but not in terms of quality.

I'd rather wait for Gamekult review. Even if GK give a 7/10 to Heavy Rain, at least I know their reviewers are trustable and they point real arguments in their reviews. is the equivalent of VGchartz, highly popular but not reliable.

Information Minister3179d ago (Edited 3179d ago )

@ GreenRingOfLife
Yeah, because no game is AAA until Jeuxvideo says so.../s

@ DaTruth
I think MariusElijah was referring to Bungies' comment (Bungie = GreenRingOfLife).

Bungie3179d ago

keep in mind it's just one opinion and it's not like 7.5 a bad score

Saaking3179d ago

Wow, that was a terrible review.

Marceles3179d ago

"better than Fahrenheit, 7.5." lol...what the hell?

bjornbear3179d ago (Edited 3179d ago )

so jeuxvideo counts but ALL the other random french websites you complained about don't?

are you special?

SilentNegotiator3179d ago (Edited 3179d ago )

I added a google translation version (And screwed up on titling it :P ) because babel fish translation is horrible.

Bungie/RedLightofDeath is talking to himself, lol.

DatNJDom813179d ago

................ LMAO!!! So Yea........

Baka-akaB3179d ago (Edited 3179d ago )

Before trolls rejoice or anything like probably posted above , is the most ridiculed french webzine , and considered a "noobland" . Not something to do with anti ps3 ... pro ps3 ... anti 360 or pro . They just have always been failures every generations .

Most people only go there because they have an extensive database of french faqs , like gamefaqs .

AND LOL at people that can't even read french yet gives it some credit .
What's next babelfish some harsh critic from thailand ? :p

Triella3179d ago (Edited 3179d ago )

There are a bunch of other reviews from french sites : : 8.5/10

Playfrance : 9/10 : 9.5/10

KiRBY30003179d ago (Edited 3179d ago ) is not biased all the time, they have a lot of different reviewers. BUT the guy who wrote the review (Logan) is a big 360 fanboy who loves to be harsh on PS3 exclusives.

almost a year ago, there was already plenty of people asking the website ( not to let Logan write the Heavy Rain review because they knew he was going to just mess around... and look who wrote it. bingo.

basically in his review he's trying to make the game look like it's an "ok" game and that there is nothing special about it. he emphasys the flaws of the game to make them look more important than they really are while he just skip talking about the good parts. hate this guy.

dont worry, the mods can see our IPs, and I am pretty sure they ban ppl for having multiple accounts. so since we are not banned its obvious we are two seperate ppl.

agent0273179d ago

Epic fail of a review.

Thanks for the warning Plastica.

bjornbear3179d ago (Edited 3179d ago )


pimpmaster3179d ago

did anyne really expect this 'game' to get a good score? you can hardly even call it a game its more of a interactive movie. shure ill defenetly rent it but to me this game just isnt the right type to warrant a purchase no matter how good it is.

Bigpappy3179d ago

I saw some site gave mag a 6. People with high expectations for reviews are too invested in something that is very subjective. This is only saying that some people don't really like this type of game.

xabmol3179d ago

Well I really enjoyed Fahrenheit and if HR is better, then it's a D1P regardless of score.

Grandmaster3179d ago

@PLASTICA-MAN Nice to know lol

PrimordialSoupBase3179d ago (Edited 3179d ago )

When an exclusive comes out, retards do too. A publication can give a game 7.5 and still like it. Deal with it. You can even have a negative opinion of a game simply because of the reaction the GAME elicits, you know like how a platform has Nothing to do with it?

You're a bunch of mental cases worthy only of lols.

randomwiz3179d ago (Edited 3179d ago )

I dont know how many of you know french culture, but from what I've studied, in French schools, they grade on an out of 20 scale. This review also graded out of 20. French schools are harsh, which is why a 15/20 is a pretty good grade in France.(from what I've studied)

if you want further clarification... they give the game's graphics a 15/20. Which may not sound like a good score to you, but in the French grading system, its a pretty good score.

Guido3179d ago

Another fanturd review to help fuel the Xbox fanboy hatred towards an inovative and fresh new IP. Kudos to the idiot author of this review! He sure knows how to spread chit over the net!

inveni03178d ago

Alright, fellow PS3 players and Heavy Rain lovers. Let me make something perfectly clear:

Heavy Rain is a niche game. It's something you either get, or you don't. If people don't get it, it won't score well. So, don't be disappointed with 'bad' reviews. I don't get the Halo franchise...AT ALL. I just can't understand it. The same with Gears of War. Sure, they can be fun for a little while, but I really have absolutely no interest whatsoever in subsequent releases of either franchise. Likewise, there are people who couldn't care less about Heavy Rain. When they review it, it shows.

So...DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT. Grab the demo next week and THEN decide if you want more.

sikbeta3178d ago


How GreenRingOfLife and Bungie could post 2 comments, 1 after the other if is The SAME PERSON with Different accounts...?


I never knew about this site, but not for that I'll dismiss this site, I'm not Shocked Either, this game is not for anyone, a good example are the MW2 kids that never in the life will going to play this game, cuz is not a FPS, so is quite understandable

No matter what, I'll buy this game, cuz I think DC made a Masterpiece and didn't ruined like with indigo/F


JANF3178d ago (Edited 3178d ago )

Finally the real reviews are coming in. 7.5 is a good score for this game/movie.

Lifendz3178d ago

It's really really different. 7.5 is a good score. Maybe the game wasn't this reviewer's cup of tea. I guarentee in the end this game has a AAA ranking on GameRankings and maybe even Metacritic.

Well Heavy Rain was never going to please them all, although 15/20 is hardly something to get upset about.

My only gripe with the review has to be the visual score, 15/20, that seems a little low, especially when MAG received 16/20, although I suppose if you take the sheer scale of MAG into account it can be justified, but on face value it surely doesnt match up to HR.

Roll on release day.

Elven63179d ago

Indigo Prophecy was the same way, it was polarizing but it still did enough to sell a lot of copies and gain a fanbse.

Killzonegamer843179d ago

this site isnt even on metacritic.. Move along

kingdavid3179d ago

LOL at some of you clowns at disregarding the review just because of the score at the end. I guess thats what gaming has come to these days...

Jeuxvideo have always been notoriously harsh. I remember when they released their early review for GTA 4 and gave it around the same score and people were up in arms.
