I know heavy rain and LBP 2 is a rather strange combination, since there seems to be nothing similar between them (except they are both ps3 games :)), so thats why Ive problem deciding lol

ok, actually, I couldve bought thsese 2 games with no problem, but there will be too much games coming out next year!!! Im afraid my pocket money will become at least -US$100 when it comes to 2012

so I decide to choose either heavy rain or LBP 2 to save some money. one is released while another is releasing very soon. I think we have a good idea how good/bad they are (IMO) so help me to choose to buying which one!!

Heavy Rain OR LBP 2???

LBP2 will have so much more replay value thus saving you money for other games down the road, you will beat heavy rain and then want something else pretty quickly IMO. I would not get HR until its around the 20$ and you need a game for the summer or something

Heavy Rain is an incredibly enjoyable experience. It is one of my favorite PS3 games to date, literally. If you like getting caught up in a story, you cant go wrong with it. I bought it at release and dont regret it one bit. There is not a story as gripping on the PS3 in my opinion. I am also excited for LBP2 though, and I cannot wait to buy it. It seems you have so much more freedom in this one compared to the first (Which I skipped after taking part in the Beta). I recommend getting both. Dont listen to those two above me, do not miss out on Heavy Rain.

I dislike Little Big Planet completely, so naturally I'd go with Heavy Rain, it's a worthy PS3 game that is completely epic.

Same here...

The thing with HR is that it sucks You in so much the game ends really fast :D

Its short, has low replay value, after beating it twice have not touched it, but OH BOY the expierience was GOTY incredible.

I recommend You go buy HR now, game not to be missed ( maybe find it cheap).

LBP2 on the other hand will be played for many years, cant go wrong with that.

BUY HEAVY RAIN !!! XD

Are you in the US? There are currently deals on amazon for Heavy Rain, I've seen it get to like $40. So you'll be saving some money there... if you don't mind waiting, prices of games will always drop within a year.


But like everyone's been saying, HR is a wonderful and totally different experience that is worth it completely. But there is very little replay value. LBP2 on the other hand if it's just as good as the first, you'll have a blast for many more hours. So it depends on what you find worth it... the amount of time, or the quality?

Agreed. LBP is the most boring game I have ever played. Heavy Rain was amazing so its the obvious recommendation from me as well.

Heavy Rain has horrible characters and a horrible story but it can be really funny. No reason play it more than once. You should get Little Big Planet.

Heavy Rain is like no other game... You have to experience it.

The story mode of LBP is a bit boring (IMO) and you have to collect all prize bubbles, ace all levels in order to get the platinum which is rather annoying :( but sackboy is cute, and creating levels can be very fun :D but since everyone is saying that playing HR is an epic experience, maybe I should put it in my first priority and get LBP 2 later when Ive got some money :)
