Movin through the Rain; SFG’s Heavy Rain Move Review

SFG writes: That old saying,”Be careful what you wish for, because it might come true”, became a reality. It was easy to calibrate the game, and get it going. Moving the character was a bit easier this time around. You used to have to hold down a trigger button to move, now all you do is move the Navigator analog stick.

Been looking forward to trying this with the Move. It's one of the first games available that takes the patch approach to an existing title.

"All in all, the patch works pretty well, but I for one, would rather play with a regular controller."

That's not what I wanted to hear. If these are just better off with a controller and it doesn't do anything for immersion then what is the use.

I downloaded the demo so I need to try it myself. Nice of QD to make a demo available. Are they going to patch the original game? There is no way I will buy it again just for Move support.

The move patch really bring more immersion, when you open a door, you have to do the same action with the move, same for brushing your teeths, start your car, etc

Playing it for the first time now. Move works with it really well. The action scenes are awesome, don't care much for the really slow parts though.

i am still trying to get use to it, for me the action icon is hard to see, but shocking is that when you want to pick up something your hand does that same action as the character would in game.

I think a game like Heavy Rain can straddle the line between hardcore and casual. I'm afraid the author is right that it becomes a point a click adventure...sorta like Myst, but I don't think it takes away from the game, save perhaps the difficulty.

I'm buying the Move edition, but I hope I can play with the DS3 as well. Best of Both Worlds.

You can switch between either one if you like, you also don't need to get the move edition you can just dl the patch.

Dam I got to try this, I Loved the game but never got around to finishing it

After playing the game when it first came out and now playing with the move, i have came to the conclusion that it would have been 20x more epic if i was using the move the first time i played the game. It would have made it even more unique, more challenging, and in many ways deeper.

I played the Heavy Rain demo, and the first thing I thought was "This would be absolutely fabulous on the Wii. I hope it is on Move. No..I know it will be on Move. It's too obvious, perfect...perfectly obvious. This game could be a killer app for Move. OMG! Sony already has the killer app for Move! Those bastards!"

I don't know remember if I'd call it a killer app, but I wanted to play it using the Move first. Thanks for letting me know my gambit will pay off. I'm buying the Move Edition when it comes out.
