All I've played thus far was the demo released via the Playstation Network and I'm already so excited to get the real deal in the palm of my hands. While I agree the controls are a little funky at first- one thing I will say is that the sheer depth of interaction is simply amazing. As forementioned in other reviews, walking is awkward but there doesn't initially seem to be a reason for incredibly accurate direction.
One other downside I've found is camera control, with the camera more or less locked to different view angles, it's become apparent that thorough examining of an area is much more necessary than other investigative genres.
With excellent graphics, beautiful interactive controls and(from the brief introduction I received) a positively entrancing storyline- this game is definitely a must-play for anyone who enjoys having a well-detailed movie in their control.
Heavy rain is the most inovative game I have played yet. The game play and story line are awesome. Graphics are the best I've seen so far. Moving your player around is weird at first, but you get used to it rather quickly. All in all, this is the best game I've played on PS3 for this genre. I feel it will be game of the year! Definately but this game, and from GameFly you can't beat the deal!
