Heavy Rain is one of the most exciting things to happen to video games for a long, long time. It's not a threat to the old way of doing things, but it does hint at a whole new direction that some games could take. It occupies a middle ground somewhere between video games and cinema, and to be quite frank, there's nothing else like it anywhere. If you do plump for it, I can guarantee that you'll be discussing it – and all the great moments that I've resisted telling you about – for months to come. And if you want a true indicator of the PS3's abilities, and of the true potential of what video games can do, I can think of no better candidate.
