    Interesting concept

    After finishing an epic 100 million hours of playing Witcher I decided it was time to mix it up. No more sword slashing monster killing. So I decided to try something different. Heavy Rain looked like something completel... Read Full Review

    This Rain is More Annoyingly Damp Than Heavy

    Back when I first played Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain in high school, I loved it. The concept of a story based game where your decisions can impact how the story proceeds was new and amazing to me, and they weren't nearly ... Read Full Review

    One of the best storyline I've seen in any game, starts slow, but it gets more and more interesting.

    Heavy Rain was originally released on PS3 in 2010, years later the game won a PS4 title, and finally I had the opportunity to play this great game, and I regret not having played it before, the graphics are beautiful, th... Read Full Review

    Half-baked

    Heavy Rain is a detective story that lets you switch between four characters that are trying to track down a serial killer and save a child he has abducted. The game offers you many choices, resulting in many different s... Read Full Review

    Almost Great

    Great story line and characters, although some shaky voice acting. Great twists and very engaging. Let down by unnecessary control issues. Violently shaking my controller repeatedly is the least fun thing I have ever be... Read Full Review

    'Different' doesn't always mean 'better'.

    Remember the game 'Out of This World' for Super Nintendo? It featured a drastic shift in graphics style and gameplay in exchange for a very unique gaming experience. The graphics were broken down to their pure polygon ro... Read Full Review
