Still have not picked this game up. I will have to give it a try eventually it just seems to me like your watching a movie and not much of a game.

But Kudos to them for something brand new and fresh it sold well.
It's pretty cheap these days and i'll have to buy it.

It feels like a movie that you are in control of and the character choices. It also has multiple endings, like some of the best films (eg. Blade Runner)

By the way, well done Quantic! I'm really looking forward to their next title.

Agreed.

There are moments in Heavy Rain that get so hectic, I've never experienced anything like it in a game before or since. The worst part is the consequences for you actions in the situations!

It was awesome.

I really liked Indigo Prophecy back on the Xbox, so I had a pretty good idea what I was getting into with Heavy Rain, and so far I've loved it. Haven't finished it yet though. I've got to say, knowing that your consequences have actions, knowing that you can lose any of the characters, it makes the entire game pretty damn intense in parts.

Nice to see this paid off for them. I was a bit worried about the appeal of this game. It didn't really storm out of the gates, and when you look at the tepid response for the well reviewed Alan Wake released about the same time, it didn't look good for Heavy Rain's long term success. Nice to see Heavy Rain had gamer support. I'm looking forward to actually having some time to finish it off.

EVERY segment has a different ending(other than the JASON! Part)

Probably the most memorable game this gen for me...so far.

well deserved sales, Heavy Rain was a burst of fresh air in a fully crowded FPS industry.

Same here. Completely agree. It was something unique and just identified itself as different- and it turned out to be a good game! I wonder what Quantic Dream has in stores for us.

For a brand new IP, this is a great achievement. Well deserved.
