Very Good

A benchmark in interactive entertainment

In Heavy Rain, you will play as four unique characters who are trying to catch a serial killer before he can claim his final victim.
Using the Dualshock 3 controller, you will need to complete specific actions that mimic the movements of the character on the screen. Depending on how successful you are at completing the actions will determine the outcome of the situation and thus the progression of the game.
The graphics in Heavy Rain are beautifully rendered and the environments and characters look wonderful. Each animation was painstakingly motion captured and it certainly shows in the final game.
However, the main problem this game currently has is the game breaking glitches. In one section of the game a character will get stuck inside of a couch stopping the story from progressing until you reload from the last check point and make different choices. Also in several sections of the game the sound would stop all together while the game continued on. These are serious problems in a game like this that breaks the one thing the game does best and that’s total immersion in the story.
Overall, Heavy Rain sets a benchmark for interactive entertainment and story telling that other developers will surely attempt to incorporate into their games in the future. Hopefully the glitches will be addressed with future updates making this game near perfect.
