Heavy Rain User Review
on January 27, 2013 at 03:42 PM
I am, and always will be, a fan of a game that lets the player choose. After all, my favorite game of all time is the original Mass Effect. But Quantic Dream injects some fresh and innovative details into the foray in Heavy Rain. I've heard about similarities between Heavy Rain's and Indigo Prophecy's...
A captivating story, moving characters, is this possibly the best drama game of all time?
on July 30, 2012 at 07:04 PM
Obviously this game is quite old, but I still find that this game fresh. As a story, it definitely goes as one of the most tenses finales to be ever scripted. Playing with four characters maybe a little confusing, but over time you can instantly warm to them, and reminisce about how someone reminds you...
Storytelling At It's Finest

Quanticdream's Heavy Rain breaks the mold on storytelling in video games. It blends a beautiful mixture of intense action, dramatic scenes, and interactive cinematography and weaves a beautiful web as it tells it's story of love, fear, and deception. There are few games out there like Heavy Rain...

Heavy Rain is amazing. I'm surprised by it actually. The character development plays out great, and the connections you make to the people surrounding each character is superb. Quantic Theory has definetly put something unique out there for people looking for something that doesn't fit the traditional...
Heavy Rain Ends Up A Bit Light On Freedom (NO SPOILERS)
on April 12, 2010 at 03:09 PM
With a game like Heavy Rain, reviews can become much less concrete. Questions arise such as "Are you a 'storyline gamer' or a 'gameplay gamer'?" Suddenly, gamers are sorted into strange and new categories that never existed before, changing the meaning of a review. Because of...

So after a long wait it is finally here and it really didn't dissapoint. For anyonw that says this is not a game is wrong. It is a game, just one like none other. It...
Heavy Rain Hits the Mark in Narrative Games
on March 10, 2010 at 06:17 PM
~Spoiler Free~ Heavy Rain is an interesting ‘game.’ People who could care less about story lines and just want action should look elsewhere to spend their money, but gamers who are constantly looking for a new way of presenting narrative in an interactive setting will be absolutely delighted...
Succeeds in every way, small hiccups though.
on February 24, 2010 at 01:01 AM
I finished my first playthrough and was incredibly enthralled with the entire experience. The story was was very intense and drew me in with cinematic action, difficult decision making, and a deeply involving storyline. As i said in the title, it succeeds in all areas. The music is spot on, the majority...
Heavy Rain = GOTY! (To me atleast)
on February 23, 2010 at 11:41 PM
Heavy Rain is only the second game of its kind after Indigo Prophecy that has really set the bar for video game story telling and sets it apart from any other game out there to date and should not be overlooked. Heavy Rain is a next gen game all on it own. No other game has ever done what Quantic Dream...
