Join us at PixelJumpers as we take a look back at Heavy Rain, last years breakout hit for the Playstation 3, and exam one of the critical problems that held it back from greatness.
the problem with heavy rain is the i haven't seen all the endings.....its so good need to see them all
Believe me, it's worth it! I played the game 4+ times from beginning to end (yes, I'm that dedicated) and I was not disappointed with any of the endings!
ive beaten it 3 times and other games distracted me
I loved the game so much I got the platinum trophy for it and still wanted to play it again. :D
I don't blame you, we all distracted sometimes. I'm currently balancing Socom 4, Portal 2 and LA Noire, lol...
Oops double post, sorry.
the problem with heavy rain is that the rain is too heavy.
I'm glad I read this article.
This isn't a problem with Heavy Rain, it's a problem with story-driven games period. Shepard in Mass Effect avoids this problem by not having a personality outside of what you have done, while Heavy Rain's characters come as they are.
i think quantic dream got heavy rain bang on.. they seem to have figured out how to trigger players emotions.. wether that is the contextual actions or the music, or the story, character personalitys, unique enviroments.. i wish more games were fresh
My only gripe with Heavy Rain was it's terrible Voice Acting.If you're gonna do a American based game,then hire voice-actors from the USA (or atleast someone who can imitate the accent).Last time I checked,there were enough American voice-actors to go around. Overall,I thought the game was decent and Scott Shelby is alone worth the price of admission.
