By now, I'm sure you've heard about "Heavy Rain." Critics loved it, gamers were rather polarized by it. You either love it or hate it. I love it.
The storyline is well written, the characters are great, the soundtrack is outstanding, the graphics are phenomenal, the gameplay gives you plenty of control, and the choice-based system and different outcomes only add icing to the cake of what is a fantastic journey.
Even despite the game's insanely high score, I'll admit that "Heavy Rain" is not free from problems. Although the storyline is well written, there are a few plot holes and unexplained plot devices (Norman Jayden's ARI and Triptocaine) and, although the acting is solid, there is some awkward line delivery. Even so, the plot actually manages to keep you thinking and asking questions long after you finish the game, and it emotionally connects to you like few other games can. Translation: if you can get past the game's minor issues, "Heavy Rain" is a wonder to behold.
Final rating: 10 out of 10 "Fantastic"
