When i first started playing this game i was so confused since i havent played heavy rain and there wasn't much prompts on what to do. Some events they expect you to know where to flick the right stick when it doesnt tell you but im assuming it's because of the difficulty i chose. I'm glad it didnt treat me like a baby the whole ride through. The acting both voice and mo-cap was amazing, with Willem Dafoe and Ellen Page it turned out to be amazing. The scenes were well done and the environments were astounding. It basically feels like you're playing a movie, the screen isnt cluttered with a health bar or map and the detail is so fine you can see fibers in the couch. The story was well done and pretty briliiant, takes place on a timeline but the events do no happen in order but other elements in the story do. There's plenty of choices to make. My only complaint is there's no sound option, voices are so low and the sound effects are higher. And theres a bug here and there but overall it didnt ruin the experience for me. It's also two player so if you have someone with you that wants to play they can use the app on android/ios to help out.

I've played this game before, rented it threw Redbox. I got about halfway threw it and had to return it. When I signed up for Gamefly, I thought why not try and beat it. I didn't even get past the install screen. Looked online and they said to clean it, delete the patches, reinstall the patches, etc. I did this all for a whole 2 hours before giving up. The disc I was given did have multiple dents on the edge of the game. I guess I'm going have to wait another week for the game.
I rented this game just expecting another great interactive story like Heavy Rain, little did i know that it would be one of the best video game experiences i have had in 20+ years. The story grabs you and just keeps going, I did my first playthrough in one sitting. Keep in mind it was so good it kept me there for 10 hours straight. The storytelling is deep and compelling and i felt emotional bonds for the characters including hatred and a feeling i would explain almost as love. Every choice you make in the game, big or small, has its consequences and can alter the story a great deal. There are plenty of high adrenaline moments and plot twists to keep you entertained and also some moments that can bring a tear even to the most unemotional of people. I highly recommend giving it a try, its a little different than a traditional game but its definitely worth the experience.
