Thumbs up from mag as Quantic Dream delivers on its branching plot promise
Definitely more accurate than their ff13 review.
this game will average around 90%... points will be deducted for no multiplayer, no guns, no war theme etc... and of course, not to forget Edge and its friends. i tried the demo. it's a solid buy buy for me.
You know it's gonna happen!
Another AAA score!
I really liked the demo. It felt so futuristic/next gen. This game is a must buy if you have PS3 and want to play something very innovative for these times. It is more interactive than you would expect or what the review would want you to believe. There's a fight scene in the game and it was the most adrenaline pumping fighting mechanic I have ever scene. I love it.
unique and bold new IP on a next gen console AND exclusive, and its getting 90+ scores =O i don't take reviews too seriously but this is simply surprising =D day 1 before the reviews, day 1 after them =) @ ankle-biters aww look at them =( they are upset they can't get anything but shooters on their console of choice =( must get mighty boring if you ask me =) innovation in gaming FTW (and that is INNOVATION in GAMING, not innovation in marketing like Natal or Arc)
I expected this game to be good but never expected such high scores! Must buy!
I just finished Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy the other day, damn that game sure is hooked. Now I'm really looking forward to Heavy rain :)
great score 3 more days till i get my hands on it :)
I hope that these scores reflect the idea that this game is new and of some different game play than the average shooter or platformer. This is a game where you explore a deeper relationship with the characters and since it is new, I hope people embrace it and give something else a try. If you like it then great, if not then don't buy another one like it.
Solid, solid, solid score! I just don't know if my budget will stretch. Damn.
S**t son! Between HR and Bioshock 2, Feb is looking up for quality games. This game will be such a great departure from the cry babies and glitchers in MW2, can't wait.
Demo was incredible. I am getting this for sure.
These guys have pretty high standards so yeah its a good score.
I played the demo and I liked it a lot. I was skeptical on how good it would be since it seemed like a really slow paced game. I did like Indigo Prophecy which I gave an 8.5 rating. But Heavy Rain seems like it's going to be a bit higher. Much more in depth and very detailed. Seems like it's going to be an 9.0 rated game from the looks at the early reviews. And I would agree since the demo was very immersive! Especially the FBI agent. http://www.gamerankings.com... If you have already played the demo you might want to check out Phil's walkthrough. Be aware that Phil is a SMART ASS! He's not the most observant dude but he's very funny in his vids. You'll be surprised what he says about the demo at the end of the walkthrough since he has be known to VERY CRITICAL! http://www.youtube.com/watc... (part 1) http://www.youtube.com/watc...

@Ico92 They gave Dante's inferno an 80%. Yeah, they're really brutal on scores.... /s
buy day one even if the game gets 1 out of 10
Inb4 Nogolis and his frienz to spin it. 88% is a great score. You have PC game :-)
What does "You have PC game :-)" mean?
, got better reviews than heavy rain and isnt on the ps3 *laughs*
I know; It means something start with M and end with 2 is also on the pc. :)
Great score, I'm definitely buying this.
8.8 is probably too high (but then I consider 6/10 good and anything above 9/10 to be a damned classic), but I have my Special Ed on preorder :D
Is she Crying because the xBox 360 has NO GAMES!!! ;-D (Oh erm it's Rain not Tears, oh well) Demo was COOL. I will Buy;)
I really don't know how you still have bubbles.....oh wait. What does the 360 not having any games have anything do with Heavy Rain. It kinda shows you what type of fanboys hang out on this website when people like that can have 5 bubbles. Good work N4G community.
Hey there Sir Ken. How's linking that PSN ID coming? Cause, I still want to beat your ass into submission on UC2. Unless of course, you've been just fronting about having a PS3 ... :D
-He works for Sony, but he doesn't actually have a PS3 of his own. He only gets to use one when he is at work.-
Is because he makes these comment in the open zone. If he went into the gamer zone with this crap he'd have none by now.
88% lol this game is at the mercy of Alan Wake. Which is going to score AAA across the board. Enjoy your interactive movie, Alan Wake will soon be here to destroy you all.
do nothing for gaming. yeah you can come up with some bull about being innovative, but wii was innovative (sort of)
Can't wait for this game to come out. [Edit] Ugh, I couldn't attach the pics so nvm
Alan Flop already flopped because it doesn't have Halo in the title
alan what ? u mean the game that is also on pc and prob look 10x better on pc
@THC CELL You all say that same thing, as you flock to the "Is Mass Effect Coming to the PS3" articles.
Well, Zaraki (You're my favorite Character on Bleach, why you gotta be such an ass?) I plan on buying Alan "Flop", I guess I'm not as rabid as an Xboxer you guys think ... But then again, you people LOVE your stereotypes.
-Alan Wake is not coming for the PC. Only the 360. The PC version was canceled months ago.-
You think a QTE movie can challenge a real game?, lol. It' slike going into a knife fight with a spoon. You lose sucker, along with Heavy Lame.
u are defending a game that u have never played.. Step where i have working for game in the uk and getting all the latest previews demo codes and review codes. ohh its great to be a gamer btw heavy rain is alot better alan wake is just like a game i have played before and i think its called alone in the dark
Then go play Alan Wake and stop trolling PS3 related articles, you must have a copy considering how "AAA confirmed" it is?
Russ_90 Because god knows that no PS3 fanboys AAA confirm anything before it comes out.....MAG *cough*......GOW3*cough*....GT 5 *cough*. I can keep going.
By all means keep going if it makes you happy. I'm sure they do, i never said they didn't. A fanboy's a fanboy at the end of the day, regardless of console of choice. I happen to like and support the PS3 as my console of choice (never hidden that fact), but i don't actively seek out 360 articles to troll with pointless, childish comments ala Wii360BeatsPS3 above. I'm not saying others don't, by all means take that up with those who do if you feel strongly enough about it. That's your prerogative just as it is mine in this case. This is a PS3 exclusive related article, Wii360BeatsPS3 is trolling, hence my comment. EDIT; By the way, that isn't my disagree as what you are saying is right in the respect that fanboyism is rampant on both "sides".
touche....I just don't like hypocrites..not saying that you are one. There does seem to be a lot of them on this website.
STFU rtard, your opinion means nothing to me and everyone else on this site. If i wanted to walk around with a torch i'd play Luigi's Mansion. Now if i wanted a dynamic story were my actions control future game events i'd go with Heavy Rain.
why are you hyping up a lost nintendo exclusive Luigi's Mansion 2 on the 360
mass effect 2 Is the best looking and playing game ever to date. and heavy flop rain is best stupid movie ever!
Seriously........that's your attempt at trolling? That's honestly the best you could do? That's embarrassing.
Screw it... Wii360BeatsPS3 is annoying. Fact. Insane to think some people want Alan Wake and Heavy Rain to succeed. I know I do. (love HR) btw...why compare alan wake to HR? alan wake is more like silent hill (not that thats a bad thing but still)
BldyShdw: Why compare? Because you can bootleg hype for one game and impute it to the other. (i.e. prototype/infamous) The industy does like fanboyism. It creates hype and in some peoples pathetic lives, passion. Ultimately this leaves to higher sales. Of course in my example those games were at least the same type of game. Alan Wake is a silent hill style game, and Heavy Rain is (and let's be honest here folks) a fresh take on point and click adventure. I have no problem with either, and I support any game on any console that at least as a breath of innovation and not a FPS and now quickly becoming TPS. Heavy Rain is a day one purchase for me.
"Ultimately this leaves to higher sales." Unless your a PS3 fanboy....Example UC2. GOTY with sh*t sales. Not trying to dog the PS3 because I have one and love it, but PS3 fanboys have more bark than bite.
uncharted 2 sold more than both left 4 deads. so by your logic left 4 dead had sh*t sales. taylork37 that was pretty stupid of you to say.
But since when has L4D been hyped to the level of UC2. And who said the game is even on the same level of "awesomeness" that UC2 is on? Did L4D win GOTY.....? When L4D2, an exact copy of L4D1 almost has more sales than the GOTY I think your entire point goes out the window. UC2 is arguable the best game on the PS3, and not too far off from the best game ever. Good work.
i wouldnt talk sh!t droids, mass defect is up there with rogue warrior & damnation..
that score is a flop? more like you are a jealous little girl
I played the demo yesterday and all I can say is GTA4 remastered in terms of graphics and the games uncanny as hell. Don't ever expect a HR 2 because Sony are obviously done with this franchise after they see the sales it produces and realise they wasted millions on it. and R2 to walk? LMAO!! it's not burnout.
even if it does not sell 2 million+ im glad atleast one developer wants to do something other then shooters
360 fanboys i know you want to play this game so bad but you a PS3 first.
I plan on playing it, so you can yap off all you want. Some of us actually PLAY games, on BOTH consoles, instead of hiding behind one like scared little girls. Oh wait, I'm on N4G, common sense and non-partisan politics won't be discovered for another 100 years.
i would rather buy most games out recently to this, it has rent appeal (mabye) IT IS A MOVIE with minor interaction.
Just a general question...is the demo actually out, because I tried to find it on PS store and I had no luck. :(
and then go on to the precinct 52 website and pick four pieces of evidence to get the code for the demo - luckily, kotaku.com already posted the solutions to it.
the demo. Refreshing change. I do still think it wont be as popular with a lot of people. My teenage son watched me playing it and commented how boring it was. I told him to clear off & play his MW2, but that will be a lot of peoples take on it. Personally i cant wait to play it.
Not a bad score at all.
Isn't this the same magazine who allowed their French branch to break their own score system by giving Uncharted 2 21/20??? Yeah...
Bu Bu Bu it's teh PS3 magazine of COURTH TEH GIVETH THE HIGETH SCORETH FOR TEH PS3 FAILCLUSIVETH. -Go Figure!
It is 88%, so it is not quit AAA but still good. I might buy it in the summer when it is cheap.
Overall percentage will be between 87-92!
dont care about reviews still buying it
